1 The only movies in this series that I missed were Deathly Hallows pt 1 and 2. When I read the book, it felt like 25% of it was Harry, Hermione, and Ron's "camping trip". What's worse, all they do is sit around and plan what to do next (and get into fights with each other), instead of doing anything interesting, like fight monsters. It takes them forever to finally meet up with Voldemort's forces. You'd think, with the movie's tendency to cut parts from the book, they'd cut that, of all things. Then they could have made one movie instead of a two-parter. And consider this: Order of the Phoenix had more pages than Deathly Hallows, yet Deathly Hallows was the one made into a two-parter. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 9, 2012, 11:53 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I agree. I am not much for these types of movies, but I actually liked it. Never Boned -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 8, 2012, 12:28 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I somehow managed not to see any of these movies up until a couple days ago when I decided to watch all eight of them in a marathon. I've heard that Harry Potter is to the young generation what Star Wars was to mine (and what the SW prequels weren't for EITHER generation), so I had to check it out. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to discover how well-written and well-acted these were. Anyone complaining about these kids' acting, please refer to the Star Wars prequels-- the kids were just fine. My only complaint would be with the final two movies. I HATE this new trend of artificially splitting stories into two movies to make more $$$$$. Deathly Hallows only exemplifies this. Part 1 just seems so padded and drawn out; it was the first one of these movies to bore me. So many tedious scenes of Harry and Hermione wandering around wastelands silently. Part 2 was much better, but still felt padded at times. I feel it's better to have one streamlined film that skips over some things than two bloated and uneven ones. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on February 5, 2012, 10:46 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I don't think the movie series is bad, but I do agree the books are better. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 23, 2010, 6:06 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 How can anyone think this is bad? They portrayed th books excellently most of the time, and the twists for the movie were reasonably related to the book series. Still, the books will always be better than the movies. -- Submitted By: (Zingsters) on November 22, 2010, 1:20 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I will wait until the last movie before I decide about this...there were defintly some real boning moments: 1. Making Hermione some perfectly annoying Mary-Sue (nothing against Emma Watson, she is easily the best actor of the three), meanwhile reducing Ron's character to comic relief. 2. Adding scenes into the movies which never ever happend in the book, but skipping the parts which are really important for the later stories. 3. Radcliffs acting during movie one and five (actually, he only convinced me during movie four). 4. Cutting out really good Snape Scenes during movie four but leaving in the overblown fight with the dragon completely. 5. Ball-robes for wiches which were looking positively muggle. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on November 12, 2009, 6:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Never boned. If you ask me, the people that don't like these films are mainly divided into two camps. There's those that never liked the books in the first place and therefore aren't very likely to enjoy the movies anyway. Then, there's the ones that are so diehard committed to the idea that the movies should totally follow the books that they think it's somehow feasible to have a movie that's going to cover anything close to the full story (keep in mind that the audiobook edition of "Order of the Phoenix" is over 24 hours long!) Yes, each of the movies in the series have their problems, but on the whole all of them are very well liked by a wide audience. It's not for no reason that every single one has been certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and they all continue to receive massive box office. I can find many things to like in every one of them and while it took me a while to warm up to the film adaptation of "Order of the Phoenix," I eventually got there. I quite enjoyed the most recent installment, "Half-Blood Prince" and am quite looking forward to the two films of "Deathly Hallows" that will wrap up the series. -- Submitted By: (Agent0042) on November 5, 2009, 2:08 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 After the first four novels which were great, the following ones didn't really have strong storylines - instead focusing mainly on the impending finale between Harry and Voldemort. For this reason, although the books were long and complicated, the film makers probably struggled to adapt them to movies and keep the audience interested. Also(and this may not be a popular opinion), Daniel Radcliffe is not the greatest actor in the world - I think this became apparent in the second film when they were not little kids anymore. -- Submitted By: (Phil.JS) on October 4, 2009, 4:04 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 This is a series that has been dragged on for too long. When will it end, when the kids are grandparents? -- Submitted By: (MCS) on June 9, 2009, 4:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 The fifth book spanned over 700 pages and took several hours to read from cover to cover. The movie was less than 3 hours long. It was a super-abridged version of the book. You can't fit a gallon of water into a bottle that holds a pint. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 14, 2009, 12:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Nah, I think the series is still good, but I don't think that the 3rd movie followed the book well at all, the 4th and 5th ones did a decent enough job but cut out parts that I'd liked to have seen. The sad fact is you can't make a movie based entirely on a book, you have to take things out... -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 10, 2009, 12:37 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I cannot vote because it neither sucked from the start or never sucked because the first 3 movies did a good enough job of protraying the books 4 and 5 however, left something to be desired. -- Submitted By: (freakofn99) on March 30, 2009, 8:08 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
