i never watch the harry potter movies,they don't do justice to the book.
But as films I consider them to be really good. No film will ever be able do such a book justice but the later films are fantastic anyway.

Hey everyone, just joined. I love reading, some of my favourites are the Noughts and Cross trilogy, Harry Potter, Sabriel, His Dark Materials, and lots lots more that I can't think of at the moment lol. I just bought The Chocolate War today, it's supposed to be quite good. Anyone read it?

lol. To be honest I always considered Dumbledore to have alot more life in him than he's had in the films. To me, in the films, he's just come across as this wise old man, and while I do think he's a wise old man, there's just sooo much more to him!

Thats what I thought - if Richard Harris had tried to do the things I thought DUmbledore would, he would have broken in half - twiggy old men arent Dumbledore!

I hate the way everyone says 'that book is a copy of Harry Potter'. I've heard that said about Artemis Fowl (WTF was there to link THOSE two?) and Negima (which is far superior).

I thought GOF was okay - an improvement on the previous ones certainly, though to be honest they changed the story too much (even though they didnt change it much at all!)

As a film, it was reasonable, but it didn't do justice to the book at all. The acting has certainly improved, but far too much was missed out that was in the book. For example, at the end of the book, Harry gives Fred and George the money for their joke shop, and they missed that out of the film. I know that seems like a small thing, but the joke shop has a reasonably big part in the next two books, and how are they gonna explain where they got all the money from?!

Artemis Fowl is nothing like Harry Potter! That's like saying LoTR and Discworld are alike because they are both set in completely magical worlds:rolleyes: .

Exactly! And everything was so unclear! Anyone who hadn't read the book would have been totally lost on the whole Moody/ Barty/ Barty Jr issue.

I love the Harry Potter series and I only watch the films because I love the books. They're alright...but the more I read and the more I watch, the more I notice the films have screwed up :rolleyes:

Just finished Deception Point by Dan Brown...was a good book. Although I prefer Angels and Demons On to Digital Fortress...
