Attacked in English (not really) over Harry Potter
In English class, we’re doing a comparison of fake news. We get to choose a topic, and one of them is the comparison between Rita Skeeter in Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix and Caesar Flickerman in Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
Now, there are many problems with this. My first issue (this is really just personal): LITERALLY NOBODY IN MY ENGLISH CLASS HAS READ HARRY POTTER AND MOST HAVEN’T EVEN SEEN THE MOVIES, YET THEY GO ON TO SAY HOW IT’S A TERRIBLE SERIES!!! In my personal (again, sorry) opinion, if you haven’t read the books or watched the movies then you shouldn’t be allowed to share a negative (or positive) opinion on them, yet they seem to think they can!
The second problem with this is – and I hate to say it – how the heck would one think The Hunger Games and Harry Potter and suitable comparisons? I mean, I get it’s for fake news, but no character in The Hunger Games can compare to the true artistry that is Harry Potter. I mean seriously, although Rita was a nasty piece of work, she’s still a lot better than whatever his face is from The Hunger Games.
Anyway, that’s my rant. I hope someone else shares this possibly unpopular opinion.
