Harry Potter vs The X-Men - "A cinematic masterpiece of the highest order."
Pits magical children against mutants, the way God intended
Still unsure who to root for
The story is quite simple. Harry Potter and his band of plucky wizards and witches do battle against the ferocious Wolverine and his team of mutated super beings. Firing their wands desperately into the air as they fend off lasers, claws and other various powers of the uncanny X-Men. But don't get this movie wrong. It's not just about the fighting. There are lessons to be learned as well. And our heroes learn them in spades. Perhaps at one point Ice Man will find himself dealing with the agony of loss as he watches his best friend Fire Man be disintegrated by the wizard's dark powers. Meanwhile Harry Potter and his adolescent colleagues may have to come to terms with their awkward passage into maturity as they are persistently struck down by lightning and powerful men made of metal. Oh, and there could be a love story too! Probably that one Harry Potter girl could fall in love with Gambit and he can fall in love with her even though it could never work out seeing as they are on opposing sides of a battle that is currently happening all around them. Now that's just good writing.
So in conclusion, I think it's safe to say that despite this film's current lack of existence it will undoubtedly be accepted as one of the instant classics of this or any other generation upon it's inevitable release. Ranking itself right up there with other cinematic treasures like The Godfather, Apocalypse Now and Indiana Jones in the Land of Shrek. For now, I sit in quiet enthusiasm comforted in the knowledge that a work of such emotional breakthrough will soon be upon us. Any year now. Yup. They're probably scoring the music this very moment. Listen. If you strain hard enough you can almost make out it's sweet melody.
The Bottom Line
