Agreed! The first two movies have always been my favorite. Then came the prisoner of azkaban and that's when it all seemed to change....

I started disliking the HP movies when the storyline was changed a tad bit, but I have to say that the Deathly Hallows has gone back to the way the movies should be like.


I saw the movie a few days ago and loved it.

I am just disappointed because I am going to have to wait for the other half.

That's what I don't like the movies as much as I could (and this goes for any book-to-film adaption I've seen) is that they cut out important scenes and completely change others. I appreciate that they can't include everything, especially considering the size of the last three or four books, but they shouldn't change what already works on paper.

And I totally agree with Nic on the Hermione thing. The hair really has that big a deal.

The 4th film was horrible. I remember watching it and told myself that it'll be the first and last time watching this. Part 1 of the deathly hallows on the other hand was definitely better, but I wasn't really blown away or anything. I've always thought Hermoine was way too dramatic. Not a fan of Emma Watson's acting.

Four main problems with the fourth film:

Cedric Diggory - I'm sorry, but Rob made an awful Cedric. I never liked him in the role.

Hermione's hair/wardrobe - Where did the big hair go? What happened to being the smart girl who didn't care about appearance? YOU WERE MY ROLE MODEL HERMIONE! Ok, but seriously, in the book it was a big deal. She has her hair in a bun, she's in a beautiful turquoise dress, Ron is in awe of her. He sees her as a girl properly for the first time. The film cheated us with this scene.

Hagrid is a half-giant - In the book, this was a big deal. The film barely touched on the subject.

Not enough Sirius - Sirius was supposed to go to Hogsmeade to see Harry. Instead all we got is the fireplace scene (I think). It robbed me of seeing the ever wonderful Gary Oldman being amazing. Curses.

They totally had that scene in the movie. She comes walking down the staircase wearing pink to meet Victor. Harry is staring off at Cho, then he sees her after he notices Ron's been staring.

Anyway, this movie was pretty good. I'm glad they split it into two. Otherwise, a lot more would have been cut out. They didn't miss a single from what I remember of the book. As far as sticking to the book, I'd say this movie has done it very well compared to some of the others.

No. It wasn't the same.

Hermione no longer had the big hair, and they styled it wrong for that scene. It was a pivotal moment, it was seeing her as a young woman, and they ****ed it up. They destroyed her, Emma Watson was an awful Hermione after Chamber of Secrets.

They messed up the maze part as well. Seriously how lazy is it just ot get a bunch of vines chasing em..

The graveyard scene was the only good part imo. It even shared much of the dialogue with the book itself.
