You do have a point but you couldnt say one is better than the other as i have already explained....
HP sucks bigtime, not only the film, but the books too. I started reading The Filosophers Stone, but I didn't even get to the fifth chapter. B-o-r-i-n-g!
No, really, golly?
I like Tolkien cos he makes me free from school. Not HP, he reminds me of school. *shudder*
OMG... that reminds me that Realms of Fantasy posted KULL the Conquerer as one of the last centuries top ten best fantasy movies!!! Kull??? Kull??? maybe they are confusing it with KRULL...
Swampfaye: Sadly no they mean 'Kull the Conqueror' staring (Hercules) Kevin Sorbo. I just perused my copy this evening and they put Kull in tenth place; hopefully, it will drop back to 93rd or beyond soon. I didn't have too many qualms about the other nine.
Not even "Warlock?"
Do you think Kevin sorbo's brother is on the editorial staff or what?
The article referred to, however, was discussing box office success. Remeber, Star Wars has all the little kid following. There are Star Wars books written for kids as young as toddlers. Didn't you notice the number of kids at the Star Wars films compared to the number at LOTR? Star Wars can't help but do better at the box office.
Kull, really??? Must be another one of the Conan fans who made up the list with Kevin's brother.
"danger wil robinson"
has literary roots with a scifi update
willow was great
fell for val k. there
I have to agree with Rednell. Libraries should separate Fantasy from SciFi. I know there are some blurred boundaries, but that occurs in other genres as well, and publishers, libraries, bookshops seem to be able to get around it.
Look at Dicken's "Great Expectations". There is an element of a love story, but you dont find it in the Romance section do you?
