In this embarrassing clip from the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II Blu-ray, Daniel Radcliffe shamelessly kisses J.K. Rowling’s billion-dollar ass by babbling on and on about how Harry Potter is more important than Star Wars and Star Trek because the characters originated from a literary source and not a visual one.

He implies that Potter is superior because it inspires children to read more, which is complete and utter bullshit. Even if you ignore the fact that both Trek and Wars have inspired countless spinoff novels and other reading material; both franchises have their roots in classic literary and mythological sources. Speaking on a personal level, getting into Star Wars at a very early age stoked my imagination for all kinds of different stuff like comic books, making-of books, YA novels, and even illustrated Biblical/ancient mythology stories.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
