Based on J. K. Rowling‘s best-selling fantasy novels which were released between 2001 and 2011, the Harry Potter adaptations are the highest-grossing film series of all-time. Predominantly a story which was written for children, Hogwarts and its pupils quickly took the interest of people of all ages from all around the world.
Released between 2008 and 2012, The Twilight Saga, based on Stephenie Meyer‘s vampire-themed fantasy romance novels, is known for being both loved and hated by two very conflicting audiences. Whilst I feel like I always have to justify myself when I say that I like the Twilight films, there’s no denying that I do. Yet I find myself on very neutral grounds about the Saga on a whole, both loving and hating it for many different reasons, with the films not doing the books enough justice but also having some distinctive film-making qualities.
