Harry Potter

Last night I saw the latest Harry Potter movie, and I have to say I was a little disapointed. I know they can't recreate every aspect of the books, but there was SO much missing - including house elves - and I wondered for those people who haven't read the books if the movie would make sense.

I cried of course - well just had a few tears - I knew I would, I bawl my eyes out every time I read The Goblet of Fire.

So now I'm trying to figure out how they will find the room of requirement - after all Dobby puts Twinky there when she is too drunk - but they didn't introduce her in the movie - and we missed out on seeing Percy and Charlie - and they really emphasised how alone Harry is, when in the book Mrs Weasley comes to support him in the last phase of the triwizard tournament.

It really sucks to have a vivid imagination - now I'm worried if Narnia can live up to what my mind has created for it, however, it will be amusing to see our countryside - I just hope there's no Shortland Street actors like there was in LOTR.

OH no! that's the scary thing about making books into movies - we all have a different perspective I guess... and nothing beats imagination.

I'm so looking forward to Narnia - it was my childhood love affair with books, and I even seen the seris on ABC heh. I really really hope it does the series some justice (I've heard there are like 7 movies all in all? That'd be crazy)

I always wondered why they never did the hobbit with LOTR... i know it isn't really "apart" of the triology but it was the kicker!

On the whole lady that treats you like dirt (sorry I'm a little behind on the blogs I read) I loathe people like that, it's easier for them to pull you down then to climb up to your level - UGH! I hope you didn't let her get to you too much and remember it's her problems she's just a #@$#% for trying to dumb them on you.

Have a great start to the week! and if I haven't told you already I love your blog!!

I really wish they would have split it into 2 or maybe even three movies. Even at 3 hours long, it was too short.
