Do you like the Harry Potter movies?

Or do you like the books better, or do you not like Harry Potter at all? I have read all the books and seen all the movies, but I liked the books better than the movies. I can't wait until the next book and movie both come out. How about you?

Unfortunatley I got hooked on the movies first so I never read any of the books. My friends tell me that the books are way better but since I've already seen the movies, I'm thinking I might be disappointed. Either way Harry Potter rules!!

I like the book much better. I think the movies fail to catch the magic feeling which is sorrounding the readers all the time. Parts which I liked very much were just left out, unnecessary new parts with no reason whatsoever were put in. Except for the first movie I have to say that I always had been disappointed in them. I can understand that it is of course impossible to fit everything of the books in a movie but I don't think the totally new parts were enriching to the series.

I liked the first three editions of the movie very much, but was absolutely disappointed with the Goblet of Fire which I think is the worst movie of the series whereas the book is the best one of the series. I think the way Chris Columbus has brought the magical world to life in the movies is very good and his creativity has been great. But, the problem comes from some of the performers who have not been up to the scratch. Specially the current Dumbledore, he simply does not know what is required of his role and over-acts too much. Also in Goblet of Fire, the fact that Columbus could not decide on what to drop and what to retain in the movie made it a dismal one. Overall as a series if I look at it, I feel the HP movies are quite decent adaptations of the book.
