People here like Harry Potter?

 

God... :sorcerer:

 

I generally think Harry Potter is a huge bucket of awfulness directed at not very bright kids. But the third movie was good enough to make me buy the third book, which I found atrocious. This book/movie relationship is similar to certain Tom Clancy works, like Hunt for the Red October.

Anything that gets young kids reading is a plus in my book.

 

I think Twilight looks horrible and I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole, but I respect the fact it has people picking up books and is keeping literature a relevant form of entertainment.

A tv series: Breaking Bad. This show is awesome, I wish there were more episodes.

Next on my list of series-I-missed to try...Dexter.

 

Any other good hour-long series to check out? I don't care about things like 90210 or Sex & the City...

I'm not criticizing that! That's a positive, of course. What I could criticize is the way a lot of adults seem to fawn over Harry Potter, for example. Or the way Rowling's prose seems to deliberately treat the reader like someone mentally handicapped. Her books feel like the written equivalent of the condescending tone some adults use when speaking with very young children.

I tried to read the 1st Potter book years ago...I couldn't stand the writing style either, and stopped. I've heard the last few became much better/her writing improved, but I haven't tried to check myself.

Would recommend Six Feet Under, to anyone. My favorite show of all-time. Very risque though. The Wire is also all kinds of awesome if you have yet to see these two. Highly recommended.

Like I said before, I read the third one, and found it like I described a few minutes ago. :shudder:

I rather wanna see kids reading real books than this rubbish.

I think Prisoner of Azkaban(the third one, I believe) is far and away the best of the lot. Mostly because it seems like the only that can stand on its own as far as the plot is concerned, and it has the best editing and camerawork. Cuar

That's one I've been meaning to try out for a while...I just keep forgetting. Thanks, it's in my queue now. :sorcerer:

What's with all the HP hate? Its good stuff.


In 7th grade, I teach the students how Chuck Norris took down the Roman Empire, so it is good that you are starting early on this curriculum.

Trailer looks good, but I still think Whiplash looks ridiculous. :lol:

Not as ridiculous as he did in the comics:
