Which do you like better, Harry Potter books or movies? I personally like the book a whole lot better than the movies. Which movie did you think was most accurate to the book? Do you think that all the movie characters are similar to their character in the book? Permalink
Sorry, whoever posted a comment here but can you post it again? This is my first time starting a group and I accidentally deleted your comment. And I absolutely agree with you. I liked Chamber of Secrets the best out of the movies, because it was the most book accurate. Anyway, I will try not to delete comments again. Sorry! Permalink
I like both the books and the movies but for different reasons. The books are richer with the story and background but I enjoy the movies as shorthand versions of the story. I am re-reading the novels again and that's going to take several months as I dip into them just a little bit each day. I can pop in a movie and see the whole story in a couple of hours. I think it would be different if I hadn't read the novels but I can fill in the missing story in my head.
I was a film fan long before I was a Harry Potter or LEGO fan. I long ago accepted that it's a rare movie adaptation of a book that contains the whole story. Certainly seeing the wizarding world come alive on screen is cool. I am also a fan of effects movies.
