Harry Potter without a doubt! The question about who's sexier is not fair! HP is not ment to be sexy, the Romione kiss wasn't "sexy", but it was a gentle, sweet and innocent kiss. It's like comparing an action movie and a romance movie and say " who has more action?" It's stupid! And wtf? Twilight scarier than HP? Breaking dawn has only one scene that can be scary for someone, that is the birthing scene, but Deathly Hallows part 2 had lots of scary moments,like the scenes with Nagini and the scene when Voldemort walks in the pool of blood in the Gringott, and in the previous movies, the scene of Hermione being tortured, the scene of Harry and Hermione in Godric's Hollow, the scene with the Inferi... I almost covered my eyes during these scenes, and i rarely get scared by watching a movie! The birthing scene is a joke compared to those scenes! Harry Potter beats Twilight in every aspect!

Really surprised with the comparison. Twilight is just terrible. Definitely Harry Potter.

That's like comparing Gladiator to the Hannah Montana Movie. The last Harry Potter movie is Oscar worthy and Breaking Dawn is straight to DVD worthy. Read more here:

I have to agree with everyone else who said there's no comparison between Twilight and Harry Potter, they have almost nothing in common. It's not like comparing Star Wars to Star Trek. Granted, BD was sexier, because there was nothing sexy in DH2, although if you included DH1 I'd give points to the Horcrux illusion of Harry and Hermione. The other comparison points that Becky and Shannon mention should go to HP all the way. I'll see your Stephen King quote and raise you this one. "When the love of Hermione's life left her, she continued to search for the keys to destroying the world's most powerful dark wizard. When the love of Bella's life left her, she curled up in the fetal position, went numb for months, and then jumped off a cliff."

Harry, for sure. Twilight is a guilty pleasure...something to make me feel 17 again, but HP deals with some of the fundamentals in life. Much more meaningful (and better on the big screen).

When I saw the headline, Just the thought that they would choose Twilight over HP got me all riled up. Thankfully they made the right choice. Although I like Twilight, imho it doesn't hold a candle to Harry.

Harry Potter all the way...hands down. I read all the books for both series and felt like Harry Potter did the best job in adapting it to the screen. Breaking Dawn was TERRIBLE! I tried watching it 3 times before I was able to make it all the way through.

Harry Potter was by far the better movie. In my opinion it's the better franchise. Twilight is nothing more than a rip off of stories such as Dracula or even Buffy the Vampire Slayer. When I look at Edward & Bella I think of Dracula & Mina or Buffy & Angel. HArry Potter is much more original. Plus the acting is far superior in Harry Potter.

Harry Potter. The complex story that involves death, love, loss and courage. Don't get me wrong, I've read BD, but it completely pales (and glitters) in comparison to HP. It appeals to thirteen year old girls (and girls that haven't grown up), while I read HP along with my 55 year old dad, and 23 yo brother.

Harry Potter most definitely! Attempted to watch Twilight 1,2 &3 and I just couldn't get into it. Someone said in the comments above that it's a harlequin romance for the teens, I cannot agree more. It's a sloppy love story. I never understood what the hype was about.

Harry Potter all the way. It is far superior in every category. Comparing it to Twilight is an insult.

I'm a fan of both series but Harry Potter has a substance Twilight never had. It's a harlequin romance for teenagers, and it's good for what it is. The Harry Potter series sets the bar for a fantasy series that translates to all readers, not just fantasy fans.
