Anyone seen the Harry Potter Movie? : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

What did you think about it? I read that the graphics were not as good as expected, what do you think? Does the movie keep to the book story line?

OK we went to see the movie. It gets a thumbs up from all three of us. I liked all the characters but thought Dumbledore was not quite as mischievous as he seems in the books. I agree that the movie could have ran 15 minutes more to include a few more lines from the book. I think it's a safe bet we'll buy the video when it comes out. The Library scene did have that "gotcha" in it. :o)

I hope J.K. writes book 5 soon. The paperback (2) charity works are kind of slack. I expected more of a tie in to the 4 books.

I read that some of the elementary schools was trying to band the wearing of the Happy Potter T-Shirts that Big Lots are selling. Sheesh with all the problems in our school systems you'd think they would concentrate on more pressing problems.

I just saw it this evening and enjoyed it. I did like the book better but that's just me, I always do. I think I've seen too much hype about it being exactly like the book etc. which it isn't. Well, it is but they've left quite a few things out but it was over 2 1/2 hours long as it is so I guess they couldn't put everything in. Yep, with all of that said and done it was good!
