Well, actually, the first movie was basically the whole book down to a "T," except they cut out the whole dragon scenario in the book. The second movie was their "learned from our mistakes" movie...they advance the plot faster, but I still wish they'd kept the gnome-tossing bit in....

it might of been the same, plot wise, but watching a movie is always a pale substitute for watching a book unfold in your mind. [/sappy public service announcement]

And then again we may never see another movie.  Aren't all the kids in the movies growing up pretty fast, the books take place year after year, but it takes longer than a year to make a movie.  Then there's always the point of Dumbledore being dead (well the guy that plays him anyways)...

It's called "Recasting," winna.  Dumbledore has already been recast.

There will be more movies. Much more.
After all, I wouldn't be surprised if they have split Part IV or V into two movies, because nobody can stand a four hour movie.

I finished it up yesterday.  Had to wait until Tuesday to start it because my wife got ahold of it first on Saturday.

I don't think it was quite as good as Goblet of Fire.  She does keep everything until the last few chapters, but there are a lot of clues throughout the book about what's going to happen.  It was generally known that a major character dies, so every time somebody got seriously hurt, I was thinking 'oh, no, not ...'.

One question...

Re the movies.  I thought their intent was to release them every year, around Thanksgiving (the US holiday at the end of November).  But it looks like Prisoner of Azkaban won't be out until next June, tho it may have just been delayed by the death of Richard Harris.  I'll have to agree with Gocad, parts IV and V should probably be split in 2 parts.  They can afford to slip the dates some...wouldn't be the first time actors played characters younger than they are.

Cho Chang has become so annoying it makes my head hurt. I mean honestly she was one of the few sane not-so-major or dysfunctional in some way characters from the third and fourth books. Now, she's just a mess of nagginess. In fact, they should have a stronger word for annoying and naggy: Annaggy. Yes, Cho Chang is annaggy.

The Prisoner of Azkaban had been slated for the Fune release date anyway, even before Richard Harris died. There's one simple reason - The Matrix. It would be insane for Warner Brothers to release two blockbuster movies in the same month. So, The Matrix Revolutions was scheduled for Novemeber, Harry Potter for June, bringing in more cash for Warner Brothers.

Then what you are complaining about?

I think this was also the reason why she had to be so naggy in the latest HP.

I know I just don't like it when characters change so drastically. I'd hate it if in book 6 if Snape became this really nice guy who liked to give his students flowers and ride ponies. Than again, I guess she could be suffering from the traumatic events that happened to Cedric. I hope Snape doesn't join Voldemort like rumours have been saying. He's one of my favorite characters.

That make's sense from a writer's standpoint, but not a character's standpoint.  (Love that Lord-Thingy of Fudge's at the end.  He's such a dope.)

I found Cho a bit annoying as well. 

Incidentally, is it me, or does it sound like in the movies they say Her-MY-ne, instead of Her-My-o-ne?

Wouldn't be surprised - English-speakers in general tend to drop syllables in different words, it's probably just their dialect.
