yeah...6 was good.....


Lol...Naruto Rocks! (Katelyn, Haku.) I wish Snape wasn't evil on this one....Whaaaa! Who plays Snape? He's a good actor.


message 11: by Pandy (new)

Pandy Alan Rickman plays Snape and he's certainly amazing. HBP is my favorite movie, but I think PoA is the best adaption - I like it almost as much as HBP.


Lol...Naruto Rocks! (Katelyn, Haku.) Alan Rickman....


Lol...Naruto Rocks! (Katelyn, Haku.) Does he wear a wig...as Snape?

I don't know but he plays the rule very well.


Lol...Naruto Rocks! (Katelyn, Haku.) Yeah! That is the truth!


message 16: by Pandy (new)

Pandy I think he wears a wig.


Lol...Naruto Rocks! (Katelyn, Haku.) That explains a lot!

PrincessJahnavi | 46 comments I though it was the 1st 2nd and 6th. But the 2nd & 1st were better than the half-blood Prince, because they actually stuck to the book!!


Lol...Naruto Rocks! (Katelyn, Haku.) No they did not!

Pandy I think the 1st and 2nd movies suffered from trying to adapt the books into movie too literally.

Really I didn't really think so.

Pandy Yeah, I guess some purists are like that. I used to be more of a book purist, but not so much anymore. With the exception of GoF, I think all the later movies have been much better. I love HBP and PoA and OotP is pretty good. The really annoying changes for me are the portayal of Dumbledore in GoF and OotP (So much better in HBP :D) and useless stupid moments like Ginny tying Harry's shoelace and ridiculous lines like "I love magic" (said with an idiotic grin), but otherwise I think the later films bring more to the screen and are more enjoyable.

I guess ur right, and I do agree with u that the sixth movie is really REALLY REALLY good!!!

the 4th book was really good and had main parts and little parts so the movie was really good because the book was good.


message 26: by Pandy (new)

Pandy All the HP books are wonderful. I really don't like the GoF film, but the graveyard scene at the end is very well done. I actually think, considering the HP books and movies, that I love the sixth and third movies the most, in part, because they are not my favorite books of the series. Some of the changes are easier to accept and understand if it isn't my favorite book being adapted. Of course, I still think the DH films will be great, even if DH is my favorite book.

PrincessJahnavi | 46 comments I just wish they added Dobby in, instead they replace all the things he does by NEVIAL LONGBOTTOM!!! & that makes me mad, because I really liked Dobby, he was so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


message 28: by Pandy (new)

Pandy I can see why they wanted to save time by not putting Dobby in (it would have been neccessary to explain a little bit more about him than Neville) and I don't think the fact that he is missing is a big problem when just considering a single movie, but it is a problem for DH because Dobby's death will not have the same emotional impact that it could have done, since we've only seen him in CoS.


message 29: by PrincessJahnavi (new)

PrincessJahnavi | 46 comments Yeah, but it's not just one movie, he didn't apper in the 4th or 5th movie, in the book Hermoine makes clothes for elves and Dobby takes them all, and he also helps Harry. I think Dobby is too special and important to leave out like they did!!! X-(


message 30: by Pandy (new)

Pandy I know it's just not one movie, but I mean considering each movie that he didn't appear in seperately, it's not as though there's a missing point of the story. I wish they hadn't left him out too, though, because in DH his death has to emotionally affect Harry (and the audience).


message 32: by PrincessJahnavi (new)

PrincessJahnavi | 46 comments totally agree!!!!


message 33: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Escaffi-James (aahlyia) The best movie for me has to be the 4th. I love them all, but that movie had so much excitement and I loved the Triwizard competition. JK is a genious. I wish there would have been more Snape in it, but oh well.
The first movie is also very dear to me as it was the first time i got to see HP in life. Harry was so young, sweet, and cute, too.

The first 2 movies feel like Harry Potter in the book. I agree that they stuck more to the book.
The 5th adn 6th movies had little romantic twists and cutsie BS that I just can't stand. I do not like that they added humor that wasn't there in the books and it has to do with kind of flirty, dumb things. That should have been left out. Kinda hard to watch.

Alan Rickman plays Snpae and as much as i think Rickman is a very good actor, he isn't Snape in my eyes. Snape is suppodsed to be much younger, thinner, and just a different face overall. Movies and books are very different versions of Harry Potter story, though. The books mean so much more to me and the faces I have envisioned for the characters, haven't changed with movies.

I felt like the 6th movie overdid the romance as well. I mean I like romance as much as the next person, but this was too much.
