The man has a point. He continued:

“Every generation has a modern media mythology that serves as a framework for entertaining as well as educating about ethics, morality, issues of race, gender, class, and so on,” he says. “For the past several years, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings have served in that role for tens of millions.

After all, how many classes are there that not only involve watching movies – but actively encourage total and utter analytical madness?
