So the Harry Potter franchise is about to become the number one grossing cinematic what-have-you in the history of film. The top dog in all-time moneymakers. But, is it not worth saying that GROSS SUCCESS should be adjusted to the time of said film’s release? How is it even possible to compare the total dollars made with the Star Wars franchise to that made from Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings? I know that something like Star Wars has a huge head start, but at $2.50 a ticket (or whatever the fuck people paid in LA back in the fucking day) it’s ENTIRELY IMPOSSIBLE to compare the two. Yeah? Make sense? So anytime you see a headline balking about the new “top grossing film of all-time,” just remember that it doesn’t take into account anything other than current dollars and cents, and that money is in no way a sign of quality. FUCK YOU WAR OF THE WORLDS.
