    THEY BURNED THE BURROW! /rages
    /has been raging about this since she saw the movie

    I was more miffed at the PoA adaption. Whomping Willow being pretty to indicate seasonal change and foreshadow things. No Marauder backstory.

    And they changed the beginning of it too. The part where Dumbledore annoys the crap out of the Dursleys and tells them to treat Harry better. And Slughorn looked nothing like his description in the book
    But yeah the rest was all right.

      The books are obviously waaaay better than the movies. =(
      Books are waaaay better than movies in general, IMO!

      I just wonder how the actual movie plays out. =)

      I thought that would be a very good part to include. I liked it because they abuse him, seriously, it's not right to starve a child in a cupboard :(

      I started liking Harry Potter because of the movies but I like the books waaay better. Oh and I'm going to add those users who joined later. I'm going to fix the first post's look. Finally.

      EDIT: First post updated. Also read about the "House Cup" thing on the OP. And I'm also looking for a Co-owner and one teacher from each house. :D

          Pretty much agreed with what you and TheSmartOne were saying in the last page.

          I bought a second PS/SS (the first was a paperback), since the rest of the books were all hardcover. I think either CoS or PoA had their spines' glue peeling off. Or maybe the same case is happening to the latter as I speak…o.O

          I actually liked how the actors portrayed themselves in the movie. They felt more like teenagers than special "wizarding" people and I appreciated that. The director did a good job in that sense, but the rest of the stuff felt the same as the other movies.

          More action than dialogue. That's what the audience wants.

          Same with Moody. What what the heck happened to Flitwick?? I was originally upset with how Snape turned out looking, but the actor does such a fantastic job that I don't care about how he looks anymore.

          That scene was intense. I wish they showed that in the movie. Being touched by those brains was not a cool sight.

          Its not really that easy looking for actors that looks like what they described in the book. Make up does the job but it fails most of the time.

            That's what auditions and such are for though. I mean, they got Dan, Rupert, and Emma, who even normally look(ed) very much like their characters. Why not other people? :/

              You should go finish that and read the fifth book. You're missing on all the Luna Lovegood goodness. x3

              She's a bit weird, so she's exactly like me :3.

              "There are these little things that climb into your ears and make your brain go fuzzy..." Yeah, no.

              I think that Tom Felton is a perfect Draco Malfoy, by the way.

              I didn't care about how they described the characters on the book, even if they didn't look much like it in the movies. I did know though the Rowling herself talked to Evanna Lynch and marked her as "perfect" for the role of Luna Lovegood. x3

              Well, if the author says it, it's the truth.

              I don't really care about the appearance of characters in movies as opposed to described in books in general, because I'm not very good at imagining character's appearances anyway, so it doesn't really matter to me :/

                My only real issue with the main cast is how they've grown up to be. Not to hate on them, but... Dan Radcliffe looks like a butch woman, Emma Watson is wayyy too perfect, and Neville (while rather sexy) did not grow up to be how I imagined Neville.

                Well you can't stop humans to change. Nothing is permanent except change. Why does the description bother you too much though? I'd rather take a look at how good they act it, and they did quite a good job at that if you ask me.

                And another topic I'd like to bring up, did you support any pairings of the characters? I personally was a Harry x Hermione fan right off the bat. I was saddened that they didn't end up together.

                  I never really shipped much. :( My friends ship stuff like WHOA and I mostly just followed along with that for fun.

                  But honestly I never shipped any of the main trio (Harry, Ron, Hermione) since I felt it kinda cheapened their relationship and... idk, I don't think Rowling was that good at actually writing relationships because they ALL felt so stale in the books. xD; Especially Harry/Ginny which came out of nowhere and never made any sense to me uugggh.

                  I was really disappointed that Harry actually settled down and had kids in the end though. D: He always seemed liek the type who wouldn't be able to sit still for long--always traveling, defeating evil, visiting people he's met from all over, etc. The idea of him just settling down is still foreign to me haha.

                  He is an Auror, so is Ron. But I wish they tell his adventures as being an auror. You know, a spin-off or something?

                    I don't think being an Auror would be very interesting in such a peaceful time. :
