I think most people are. As solid as the films were, I'd be surprised if someone preferred the films to the books (although I'm sure they exist). You generally have to be a pretty sensational adaptation, or do something really different with it, to transcend the lauded source.
I do but I just prefer movies as a medium (in before “uncultured swine”).

I have next to no imagination so a properly visual medium is just much more enjoyable for me.

I appreciate the books for the amazing depth and intricacies Rowling provides but films and the films of the potterworld In particular are spectacular.

Welcome to the Potter Deviants
Very ironic.
I’m in the Women’s and Children’s with my daughter. We’ve not watched any Harry Potter before so, just a few minutes ago I suggested we start watching the series together to while away the time and distract her from her pain and sleep deprivation, poor tyke. She said “No thanks”.

Read the thread, good time to learn.
The first book is amazing, for adults as well as kids. After that we all have our own opinions lol.

Edit: Ohhh Womens and Children’s just got that bit.
Good luck mate, best wishes to her and a speedy recovery :hearts:
The first movie is incredible, she might love it once she starts watching it.

This is cool. I've got a wand now: Aspen wood with a unicorn hair core 14 1/2 " and reasonably supple flexibility.
I wonder what it does :think:

Edit: Apparently it means I'm an accomplished dualist, which explains my domination of Bay 13.

Is your patronus a pop up sprinkler? :think:
