  1. DEFINITELY DEFINITELY DEFINITELY Dumbledore! First off, I love Harry Potter, and I'll admit I've never really read LotR... But I have seen the movies, and Dumbledore has got the brains, the beard, the wit and, of course FYEAHiness! Haha So, for me, Dumbledore!

  12. Def dumbledore i mean hes awesome plus Gandlaf only had the hobits behind him and they kept getting side tracked by a ring, no good in a fight LOL.

    Great IMM!!! You girls got me wanting audio so bad i think am going to invest ive never listened to audio before.

    Ive read Halo its a pretty good book I mean the author wrote it when she was 17 I think kind of impressive!!!..some parts are over written and a little blah but on the whole i think youll like it! Its worth the read thats for sure.

    Oh and I did feel the same way when I saw the Matched vs Pearl covers... glad I wasnt alone!

  18. Okay, so I absolutely love the Harry Potter books (and even just finished re-reading them...again), but I actually think Gandolf would be able to beat Dumbledore. =)

  21. Wow some great stuff you got in your IMM. I was just wondering do you know if you can buy the audio books like that. (dvd form?) that would be great if you can :) Check out my IMM tom.

  22. I would have to say Dumbledore!! Because he is already awesome and Gandolf doesn't get his full powers til later. So def Dumbledore. Plus I am bias love harry potter better but I do like the Lord of the Rings movies never read the books.

  30. Gandalf, of course! I know they're both archetypal figures but, come on...who do you think JKR got it from? Gandalf.
    Plus, Gandalf knows how to dual wield and sword and magic staff. I think the staff outdoes the wand.
    (Sorry Dumbledore. You're still awesome.)

    ReplyDelete
  31. That's a really, really difficult question but... if I have to choose... I go with Gandalf! There, I said it. Sorry Dumbledore but the Gandalf is just AWESOME, I mean, the scene where he screams "You shall not pass!" is EPIC!
    So yeah, I choose Gandalf ^^

  32. I's say Dumbledore would win. I mean he's the most powerful wizard in the HP world, even Voldemort couldn't win in a duel against him, and Gandalf, however much I like him, got defeated by Saruman. Now, if Dumbledore were against Saruman, it would be difficult to say who'd win. Albus and Saruman are more alike, both studying magic etc, and Gandalf is more a traveler, he doesn't get a chance to do much magic in the Muggle world.

    Now that HP has ended, there are still the two Hobbit movies to look forward to. Yay, more Gandalf!

  33. I love Dumbledore, but puck Gandolf. He is probably the wizard that all modern wizards are based on, so he probably has some tricks up his sleeve.

  37. That's a difficult question, but I don't think Gandalf would play nice and would probably win in a battle. I go with Gandalf!

  38. I want to say Gandalf, but Saruman totally whipped his butt in the first movie. Maybe Gandalf the White could take on Dumbledore, but not Gandalf the Grey.

    But, really, two old wizards like Dumbledore and Gandalf probably wouldn't want to fight at all. They'd drink some butter beer or mead, smoke the pipes, and talk shop.

    Who'd win against if Voldemort when up against Sauron?

  39. I've had this discusison before, actually. Andye is right: Harry Potter books, and LoTR movies win. It's a tough debate, because Gandy defeated a demon and kind of came back from the dead. But Dumbly-dore was Supreme Mugwump. In honor of the last movie (which tore all our hearts open) I will stand by Dumbledore. I have a feeling this question will plague society's greatest minds for years to come.

  40. Psh, Dumbledore, no questions asked. He's too awesome to lose.

  41. I love Dumbledore, but I would have to say Gandalf because of how he took down a DEMON and survived! :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. Definatly Dumbledor!
    Did you know it is an old English word that means Bumblebee and JK. Rowling named him that because she imagined him humming to himself.
    He is such a high powered and honoured character. Funny and inventive too :) Everything he says is just right and his word is taken.
    And who else can pull of a cool beard like that and get away with it ? :)

  49. Can i say Saruman? lol, i LOVE Harry Potter, but i think Gandalf is more powerful, i don't want to be mean, but, who died and came from death?? NOT Dumbledore, so, that's why he's my choice

  50. Dumbledore! I adore HP. Oh, I've never seen LotR :) BUT STILL. Dumbledore. He's smart, and he's a kick butt wizard :D

  51. Dumbledore! He has a repertoire of battles and wisdom to back him up. Gandalf was awesome, but what did he do? He didn't do much but counsel people...or wreck havoc. So, Dumbly-dore all the way!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Dumbledore, of course. I love Gandalf too, but Gandalf sticks to the rules a bit too much to beat Dumbledore. Dumbledore gets creative but he always gets his man in the end. :)
