LOTR vs. Harry Potter

The Lord of the Rings (1978 film)

Lord of the Rings came first.

Harry Potter came second.

Lord of the Rings succeeds where Harry Potter fails.

So why are most readers of LOTR taking a swipe at Harry Potter? Because JRR Tolkien set the standard for fantasy as we know it today and JK Rowling wrote just another cheap lame story.

Why do we say this? Because Tolkien’s wizards should be held at a higher standard and most wizards in fantasy should be modeled after Gandalf. But Rowling’s wizards come off as stupid and a bit racist; they think they are better than muggles (non magical humans) because they use magic.

How sad is that?
