Hello fellow readers! Hope you've been enjoying (and if possible keeping up with) Chamber of Secrets. I'm here with your third quiz of the Summer Term.
Book or Movie?
Which do you prefer? Did they live up to your expectations? If you can be specific, we all have our pet peeves and this is a chance to rant about them!
I know some people love the books and movies equally, other who have refused to any of films because they stray to far from the book. I'm not a huge fan of the movies, though I did see Half Book Prince at a midnight showing. I find the movies themselves lack the substance that make the books so enchanting. My biggest issue with the movies is that there will be two movies for Deathly Hallows. Don't get me wrong, I'll take as much Potter as I can get but if they wanted to extend the very lucrative film series why just do it for the last chapter? Starting with Goblet of Fire they could have made longer films or split them into two parts like they will be doing with Deathly Hallows.
Other than the lack of detail I really don't have a problem with the films, I think they're beautifully cast and (usually) visually stunning. Though nothing will ever touch what the books created.
