Oh cool, how did you like it?

Read today that Harry Potter & the deathly Hallows (part 1) is supposed to be out on November 17 over here, November 19 in UK and the US (weird much?).

I didn't really like the Harry Potter movies. Love the books, though they became a bit too teen-angsty for me in the end.

That's the way I see it too.

But I still love the books.

That's how I see it with the films.
The more there are, the more teeny they get.
So much for growing up.

I still couldn't bring myself to re-read the last 2 books Even if that's most likely due to the fact that I was (and am) so disappointed with the last book

Yeah, it sometimes feels like they are going back to their childhood days than growing up into adults...

The books are always going to be more important than the films for me.

I like to enjoy the movies for what they are and just separate them from the books. It's why I never re-read beforehand.

Info on the next Harry Potter movie from the official site:
Quote:
Movie Title: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
Studio: Warner Bros.
Release Date: 11-19-2010
Official Site: http://harrypotter.warnerbros.com/

Synopsis: Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive.Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “The Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.

I think that's a good plan While I was quite happy with how the did things in the first movies, I found myself wondering what was going on in the later ones. Not so much because they changed the storyline, but because everyone sees the world of Harry Potter differently and has his/her own ideas of how things have to look etc

Thanks for the heads-up on the new movie, Dan Guess the hype will start again soon.

That's normally the best thing to do. Or not reading them, if haven't yet, or expecting the book on film.

Though the first three were pretty close.
