I recently decided to have a marathon of the 8 Harry Potter films, because I never gave the films much of a chance before that. I thought them terribly inferior to the books, which are filled with the glory of fantastic detail and coloured brilliantly with imagination.
In fairness, the films are inferior to the books BUT they have their own charms. Let's look at what I liked about the films.
Alan Rickman- he is such an interesting actor, that even when I am rereading the books in my mind now he is permanently Professor Snape.
|Snape no jutsu|
|I don't think you're ready for this jelly|
|I don't think you're ready for this intellectual jelly|
|Stop, in the name of love!|
Tom Riddle was cast just about right.
Prisoner of Azkaban
Timothy Spall made a very good Peter Pettigrew.
Goblet of Fire
David Tenant as Barty Crouch Jr.
Order of the Phoenix
The letter from the ministry was an eye catching effect.
Half Blood Prince
Sectumsempra is the most badass Harry Potter spell still. The quick pooling of blood in the film may have been more violent than my imagination. Well done film version!
Deathly Hallows Part 1
Get in, Bill Nighy!
Deathly Hallows Part 2
Badass Maggy Smith
On that note as usual I leave you to my guest: Norman Osborn.
