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.

Not really my opinion, but funny.

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.

I agree it's not for everyone. But thank you for expressing your opinion without resorting to call it "ass".

There you go with the dog on stats again. Just because everbody went to see it doesnt make it successfull. After the first One I went to see the second thinking that it was going to get better, it didn't. I did the same for the third and it didn't get any better either. They keep you wanting more but never give it to you. In other words I may have been duped twice, but I will watch the rest on DVD.

That was a reference to the movie Idiocracy. I wasnt calling the movie or the book ass I was making a reference to how boring it was.

No biggy...to each his own.
I actually liked the 4 previous movies, this one just seemed like overkill to me, like a lame bridge to the next movie (or book).

I know there are lots of things I like that others don't, just as there are plenty of things you like that others won't like. That doesn't make it dumb or stupid, just that we're different. No big deal if you ask me.

ps- I think you and angry have gotten to the point where he is trying to push your buttons and you seem to respond well most of the time, but this one pushed a little too hard.

Umm, I beleive the definition of a successful movie is the money it brings in.

I'm not called statman for nothing.

That movie stole 2 hours of my life!
The idea, I actually liked. It doesn't seem to be too far from the truth, we do seem to be getting dumber and dumber, and only the poor and dumb are reproducing at high rates. They could have done a much better job IMO.

The 5th book was over 800 pages. I think they did the best they could. I wish they had made the movie 3 hours long.

I only defend things I'm passionate about.
