    Harry Potter was never categorised as full fledged YA. It was children's fantasy that captivated many adults. Harry Potter is more comparable to Star Wars when it comes to fan demographic.

    Twilight was the series that truly gave birth to YA.

    You never read the last books or watched the last movies I take it? That was not really children's fantasy anymore.

    This thread has changed the angle and moved the goal post about 20 times. I mean most recently Twilight was called a one time thing and then Hunger games is brought up. The explanation being Twilight lead the way... which would clearly mean it wasn't a one time thing. Im not even sure what the argument is anymore. It was about Masculine women not being appealing to male audience(shown not to be true), and then somehow shifted to twilight and beauty and the beast in the last couple pages.
    If I get it right Beauty and the Beast was an example of a "feminine" heroine by the OP, but calling that an action movie is a big stretch and grasping at straws even more than usual.

    As seen that is something completly different as the OP is so fond of saying, so it doesn't count in his opinion^^

    Which is what I said with Harry Potter's fan demographic. sorry my words made it hard for you to get. harry potter in the beginning was seen as children's fantasy but it went beyond that very much like Star Wars or Lord of the rings starting out first with a children's book like the hobbit before the later books.

    Twilight was strictly YA defined.

    Yes, but I still don't understand what is the relationship among the fantasy movies like Twilight, Harry Potter, the target age of their audience and the title of the topic: «Female action movies from a male's perspective only».

    Harry Potter is definitely a young adult fantasy series...there's really no arguing that...and again it and others like Twilight and Beauty and the Beast have nothing to do with Female Lead Action films.

    You're not alone. Its probably just any franchise now.

    Also mixing LOTR, HP and Twilight in the same sentence as if the writers were equals hurts so much I stop caring.

    Twilight had tons of action. the highest grossing twilight films had the most action. During Eclipse the male actors told the twilight fan girls to bring their boyfriends to cinema to watch the film because it was the most action packed Twilight film to date.


    The breaking dawn book had no action but the part 2 movie had action and that very big final fight.

    Twilight was a combination of many tihings, romance, action, drama, fantasy but most importantly, it was female driven unlike harry potter that had a male centre character and twilight did exceptional well.

    I am not defending the quality of twilight. I am only saying the truth about its success as a female central franchise.
