I wonder if that's why I can't get through the books...they bore me to tears, but i am entertained with the movies.
I too share that notion that he isn't as good as he should be. But I am wagering it will all come together in one of the later movies.
You can only have so much luck, and even he says in this movie that it's luck...I'm sure that will all change...they are showing the weak minded Potter, once he gets confidence he will be better.

ps- he also teaches in this movie.

Just curious is all...now I understand you did it as a random thought cause we supposedly do random thoughts.

ps- I thought she was overrated!

Are you telling me that the books can make sense out of this utter BS that has swept the world and been accecpted as greatness. Why dont you just make a movie called Ass and pass it off as a masterpiece.

It starts getting better with the third book. The fifth and sixth books are excellent.

I fell in love with these books and the characters. If it's not for you then fine, but don't belittle the ones who find them interesting. What do you care anyway? When you actually read them then you can tell me why they aren't worth a crap.

They are all the same author though aren't they?
I think I have difficulty with those kinds of fantasy book. I hate the cronicles of narnia, but liked the movie. For some reason I just can't read those types of books.

Well, I hated reading before I got into these books. I think Rowling has a great imagination IMO.

Some of us read books and some of watch movies. To each his/her own. But if you are going to put a movie out and hype it up, then make it worth while. Some stories are meant for books and not for the screen.

By the way I never commented on the books. I said that the movies are crap.

Re: The Never Ending Thread

Happy 38th Anniversary of Neil Armstrong's and Buzz Aldrin's Walk on the Moon everyone!!

How are you planning on celebrating? Me and my buddies will probably do the usual...put motorcycle helmets on, a ski jacket, and some boots, jump off a stepstool onto a trampoline and hop up and down on one foot (you know, to simulate the experience)

You could say the same thing about every book that has been made into a movie. Movies never do the books justice. It's only hyped up because the studios know the poor, unenlightened sheep like me will pay money to see it.

That I do not doubt. I just think some books are better than others in terms of keeping my attention. I think I need to relate somehow...can't do it with potter. Love it on the screen, but not in a book.

hate to tell you this angry, but Potter is WILDLY successful on the screen. The books apparently make amazing movies.
