I know I have some HP fans in my flist, so come talk about the movies with me!



Since DH is coming out next week, I've been in the mood to talk about Harry Potter. I know there is a long HP meme going around that I'll probably do eventually, but I want to get people's opinions about the movies.

So answer these questions if you want or just tell me what you think about them in general.

1. What is your favorite movie and why?
2. What is your least favorite movie and why?
3. What character do you wish had been included in the movies?
4. What scene/plot do you wish had been included in the movies?
5. What was the best scene addition in the movies?
6. Who is the best cast character in the movies?
7. Who is the worst cast character in the movies?
8. Is there an actor you would have rather seen in the movies than whoever they got to play that role?
9. What scene had the best book to movie adaptation?
10. What scene had the worst book to movie adaptation?
11. What's your favorite special effect in the movie?
12. Which creature did they do the best job of bringing to life?
13. Which creature did they do the worst job of bringing to life?
14. What are you hoping to see in the final movie?

I'm sure there are so many more things that could be discussed, but these are the ones I seem to talk about with people most often. Have fun!

1. What is your favorite movie and why?
~ Prisoner of Azkaban and Order of the Phoenix. I know a lot of people didn't like the latter one, but I absolutely adored the soundtrack of it (lol, yes, silly things such as music matter to me with these things...) and I just enjoyed it. Plus, they're my favourite books, too. Well, those two and DH. I'm really indecisive about favourites, can you tell that...? :D
2. What is your least favorite movie and why?
~ Probably Goblet of Fire. Because all the guys have that same horrible hair cut. Seriously. :'D
3. What character do you wish had been included in the movies? Uhm. Hmm. I can't think of anyone right now.
4. What scene/plot do you wish had been included in the movies?
~ There are so many tiny little scenes that should be there... Like when Harry and co. go to the kitchens at Hogwarts? It's in GoF, I think? Yeah, that, and also, I would've looooooved to see Firenze (the centaur) teach divination in OotP. The bits about his lessons always fascinated me. There are about hundred others besides these, but I can't think of any right now. Oh, also the Lupin/Tonks scene in the end of Half-Blood Prince. I like that scene for some reason. Probably because it has Remus in it. He's my favourite. Ha. (Although I do not ship Remus/Tonks, I ship Remus/Sirius and always will.)
5. What was the best scene addition in the movies?
~ I kind of liked the added scene where the death eaters attack Weasley's home in HBP. I don't know why. And on the other hand, I kinda didn't like it. I have a like/dislike thing for the movie as a whole, too. It's weird.
6. Who is the best cast character in the movies?
~ Snape. Haha, he's just... awesome.
7. Who is the worst cast character in the movies?
~ Peter Pettigrew? I don't know. Seriously, my mind is blank half of the time, apparently.
8. Is there an actor you would have rather seen in the movies than whoever they got to play that role?
~ Uhm, well, Remus Lupin should be played by someone hotter. Haha. I'm horrible. I like David Thewlis, but yeah, the Remus in my mind is much hotter.
9. What scene had the best book to movie adaptation?
~ Pfft, like I can remember all the scenes from all the movies...
10. What scene had the worst book to movie adaptation?
~
11. What's your favorite special effect in the movie?
~ ... Why am I even doing this thing when I can't answer any of the questions? Uhm. Well, okay, I don't know. Gah. Stupid questions...
12. Which creature did they do the best job of bringing to life?
~ I thought the thestrals were awesomely done! So yeah, the thestrals! (See, I can answer some of these...)
13. Which creature did they do the worst job of bringing to life?
~ The dementors, maybe? Okay, I don't really know, but they're not like I imagined them, so... yeah. Plus, I think they are inconsistent with how the dementors look in the different movies and that annoys me.
14. What are you hoping to see in the final movie?
~ ALL THE FREAKING SCENES FROM THE WHOLE BOOK. Because I love it. I am hoping from awesomeness and amazing things and crying inducing scenes and yeah, I have high hopes for it.

Oh, lol, I forgot #10. Shoot. But, you know why I left it 'til last? Because I didn't know how to answer it. Haha, go figure.





Yeah, this comment was never going to be used to fill in the blank space after that lonely tilde.

lol Anni &hearts

You are one of the first people I have ever seen that liked PoA! That one is probably my least favorite but I haven't seen it in so long that I think my general dislike of it has intensified in my mind without a real reason.

But yes, I agree, David Thewlis was not hot enough to play Remus. He just didn't look quite right to me. And the inconstant dementors bother be so badly. I haven't really liked any of their forms but they could at least stay the same.

And Alan Rickman is the best possible person in the entire universe that they could have gotten to play Snape. Everything about him and the way he chose to play Snape is perfect and I love it so much.

I think me liking PoA the movie just comes from my love for the book. And you know, for the fact that it has Remus. I guess you could say that I maybe have a kind of a thing for him. Haha. But yeah, I like it.

Yeah, because the actor's rightfulness for the role totally comes from if he's hot enough or not. We are horrible people. :D I ALWAYS THOUGHT NO-ONE ELSE EVEN PAID ATTENTION TO THE INCONSTANT DEMENTORS! This is awesome, I am not alone!

Yes yes yes to all of this. Seriously. I love him so.


Also, this is made of awesome. And kind of random, but whatever.

That is awesome. And hot. I should probably stop staring at it at some point in time....
