    So Harry Potter 6 finally made more money than Transformers 2. No surprise, I think that it's because the alpha-male sci-fi rednecks like us that drove Transformers 2 to box-office stardom are more concentrated in the United States than the planet Earth as a whole, where people are... umm, less trashy... in their tastes. In other words, Transformers is still way, way ahead of Harry in our glorious nation thanks to us geeks.

    I saw both movies twice. I loved ROTF, and I like Harry Potter in general, but I found the new Harry to be quite boring. It had a thin plot (how ironic), and had more teen soap-opera romance than action. Plus Lord Awesomemort didn't even appear in it! >.<

    Okay...

    Not a big deal, it was going to happen. Harry Potter is always big worldwide.

    I thought the new harry potter was ALOt better than ROTF, even though im not a harry potter fan. ROTF was a failure for a movie. HP6 actually had a good plot, and some funny moments, both things ROTF completely lacked.

    And ROTf is only popular in the U.S. because it is a senseless action movie thats supposed to distract the audience from the terrible plot with massive explosions and megan fox.

    Truth be told although I enjoyed Half Blood Prince more than Revenge of the Fallen I did not expect this to happen. How very odd.

    So that means Harry Potter 6 is better than ROTF, right?

    Probably.

    EXCEPT IN USA! When you talk about it in USA you gotta say that ROTF is better.

    Yes. By the logic of "the film made a lot of money, therefore it is good," Harry Potter is better than ROTF, except in America. It's nice that we finally have a simple way of determining exactly how good something is. Ooh, maybe we can get the figures together and work out if curry is better than fish and chips?

    No big surprise here.
    5 of the top 20 Movies worldwide are HP movies.
    HP, LOTR, and P of C make up 1/2 of the Top 20

    "Better" is a matter of opinion. I personally found ROTF to be better. I was expecting this too, though it would surprise me if HP6 outgrossed ROTF in the US. It's just like in 2005 when HP5 outgrossed Star Wars 3 outside the US (no offense to you Darth, but ROTS was a piece of crap and I actually enjoyed Harry Potter 4 more than both ROTS and HP6).

    So would it be fairer to compare the grossings of the first film in each franchise?

    Is anyone really surprised? It's Harry Potter.

    I'm still surprised TF2 made as much as it did.

    Just because it did better overseas which i could care less about doesnt make it a good movie. Hell Backstreet boys and NSYNC sold millions of albums does that make them good??? I only care what happens in the US and that makes ROTF a better movie. But that is my opinion. Im sure ppl overseas see it diffrent and thats fine.

    HAHAHAHAHA :lol 

    ...seriously? You don't care about how much money it makes over the world, because that says nothing about how good a product is..but then you claim it IS a good/better movie because it made more money in the US?

    ...


    HAHAHAHAHHA! :lol

    Because it made more money in the USA. That's what you said!

    I don't care if you personally think it is a better movie than HP2, that's your right, but please re-read what you said. Please! :wink:  You probably don't mean it that way but that's the intention you are giving :)  Made my day though!
