Hey! No one puts down the Potter!

Submitted By Isabel

My friend was sitting with a coworker in the quad seats on a ride home. The coworker was talking about Harry Potter, but my friend said that he wasn't really a fan of the series, when the stranger next to them (who was a businessman probably in his 40s) interrupts him, and says "THE HARRY POTTER SERIES IS AMAZING! YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT!"

Try sitting next to a Star Wars nut. I made a crack once to a friend about what I considered to be the sexual undertone of the movies and this guy sitting near us grew the biggest hard-on over our conversation.

After my friend Christine got off at Ajax, he unleashed a torrent of criticism towards me and admonished my opinion about a film (Return of the Jedi in particular) that he considered "the most influential movie of all time".

Star wars is pretty awesome,

Not sure about ROTJ being the most influential film, A new hope was my personal favourite.

Certainly beats the Mr. Potter by miles.

I've never seen a Star Wars movie, but to each their own, as the saying goes. Art is what you like. Now that I have m ipad 2 I watch movies every morning and back, I don't think my movie preference concerns anybody. Does it?
