      Especially since I literally just reread the 7th book 3 days ago and am now rewatching all the movies as we speak.

            Dude, its an overbloated, terrible tasting, but makes lots of money, and no one in their right mind would call it "good" and high quality product. Hence Harry Potter is McDonald's of its genre.

            WTF is Harry Potter if it isn't terrible fantasy (To be fair, I have only read about 80 pages of book one, and got super irritated cuz it was a convoluted mess) and saw the first movie, where they had Jesus Christ as their savior in alter-universe cuz witches, magic, and the such, needed Jesus apparently, cuz why have any sense of integrity in your bull**** when it is so contrived and sadly completely useless and ****ed up.

              One is a story that started an entire genre but reads like it was written by someone who read Great Expectations and thought is didn't have enough extraneous detail.

              The other is a great series thats first four books are probably some of the best chapter novel teachers of all time, and the other three are incredibly enjoyable adult reads.

              Not saying that HP is anywhere close to LOTR as far as literary skill or importance, but that doesn't make it a great series of books and a fun read.

              • Seriously, why is Jesus in Hogwarts?

                Someone tell me how that religion and its savior is in a world with magic and witches and wizards and different rules of physics and the universe?

                Hollywood/crappy writers need to stay on course in their development of alter universes and remember when things are similar and when the rules don't make sense to have the same.

                Dumb as muther****er **** holes on a plant.

                  I think this is the first Gong rant (though this is a mini one) that I thought was just stupid instead of funny or cool.

                          You're also like, twenty years older than me. I think a lot of people who are older never got into it, mostly because the first three are really not very good and are meant for kids.

                          • So explain why Harry Potter and all of Hogwarts school are Chrisitans that worship Jesus Christ?

                            Its not a small issue or error when building alternate worlds. Its a huge glaring error that cannot be undone.

                            The 4th wall is broken, and was never built.

                                There isn't a single mention of Jesus or Christianity in the whole series
