I didnt think the HP movies ive seen were terrible, they were alright but the huge fanbase it has amazes me.
I loved LOTR though... couldn't get through even half a book but the Movies were excelent.
Yeah, that's what I'm saying. Both very popular but we both like different ones, it's all about taste. HP has a huge fan base for the same reason LOTR does, both were hugely popular book series turned into movies, so before they were ever put into movie form they already had a gigantic fan base from the books. The movies spread the already huge fan base/spread the word of the series and next thing you know, ridiculous popularity world-wide.
I'm really close to cooking up some bacon. It's 2am, but I'm craving bacon.
