So there have been ups and downs when it comes to our favorite characters on the big screen. What was one of the worst casted movies you've seen? Is there anybody you think could have done better? (looks as well as acting)

I, for one, hated Slughorn in the 6th harry potter movie. Thats not how i pictured him at all!!!
I would've preferred somebody along the lines of a heavily bearded Robert DiNiro, short a little pudgy. Just that type of face.

Yes! You're so right! That slughorn was wayyyy to slim! They even said in the book repeatedly that he was very plump!

Jeannie (serenity77) I just have to say that when they cast for the hunger games they had better do a good job...

Bryn ((B2/B.P))   Ryeosomniac~~ (Heesica) | 54 comments And the Host. I don't really like the guy they have cast for Jarred.

I never liked Jared anyways. There's something about the host that just makes me want to read it again and again though I don't own it so this makes no sense.

I think Ian is way better than Edward (sorry twilight lovers) because he feels more real

message 12: by Jeannie (new)

Jeannie (serenity77) yes i agree so much.. i never liked Edward he was just to unreal.. like you said Gorfo.

Stephanie Meyer pretty much created the perfect lifeform. And and I hate to quote Hanah Montana but "nobody's perfect" like not even God.

Jeannie (serenity77) I know i totally agree.....

She makes me soooo angry now-a-days. Like I've been debating reading The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella like read or not to read...or not to read....

To NOT read. it looks awful and like just another way to make money.

I know...but if rd it it means I can complain loudly about it afterwards and plus I won't be purchasing it so I won't be giving HER any more money

Bryn ((B2/B.P))   Ryeosomniac~~ (Heesica) | 54 comments I read it and I loved it, but thats probably because I'm a massive Stephanie Meyer.
