    Maybe I need to start thinking more about the characters and their back stories. It makes it so much more interesting, and mostly are plausible as well!

    Favourite book...I honestly can't pick. Movie I've watched the most is Philosopher's Stone. I can quote it word for word.

    @Sariele I know you have a very indepth knowledge of the books so I am fascinated that HBP would be your least favourite book. It's my number 2 or 3 for sure.

    Care to elaborate for me please?

    I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that most of the bad feelings towards HBP come from how much I hate the Ron/Hermione Harry/Ginny pairings. Not just the pairings themselves, but also how poorly they're written, e.g. Hermione getting all sickeningly OOC emo over Ron and Lavender, Harry suddenly having a hard-on for ZOMG SuddenlySuper!Ginny, Mary-Sue extraordinaire, whom he has barely even acknowledged for the previous five years, even after saving her life in CoS... Then pretty much their entire "relationship" after that first kiss (which happened because of something so superficial as a Quidditch victory! And right after that nasty business where Harry uses Sectumsempra against Malfoy. It's a pretty dark chapter, which stains their supposed "soulmates" union with an ugly overtone right from the start) happened off-page, which meant that even if I was predisposed to liking it in any way, there was NOTHING to become emotionally invested in. It just felt so shallow! I honestly thought that JKR was going to pull some clever twist involving Armortentia or something, and everyone was just under some spell. Especially after that scene in Fred and George's shop where Hermione and Ginny were browsing the love potions (was Hermione there in the book? She was in the movie). But no, the "romance" plot was really that badly written. :No:

    The other thing I guess I wasn't a fan of was the way the flashbacks to Tom's past were done. They were most certainly very interesting, but seemed to me to take up far too much page time for what they were... the book started to kind of feel like one of those maddening "flashback" episodes that you get in some long-running TV shows. It just became a little frustrating and even a tad boring to read. For me, anyway.. I doubt this would be a popular opinion in the fandom.

    So why if I disliked the book so much does the movie possibly hold #1 spot for me? Well firstly, Bonnie Wright. Her portrayal of Ginny is so appealing to me that in the movies she becomes someone I actually LIKE, as opposed to book!Ginny who 98% of the time I can't stand, even before HBP. Secondly, the way they did Harry/Ginny in the movies was great. Much more subtle, no ramming it down our throats, and thanks to that scene at the beginning where that waitress cracks onto Harry and he's pretty damn pleased at the prospect of "picking up", his sudden attraction to Ginny when he sees her later that night at the Burrow can totally be chalked up to hormones gone wild, and gradually builds from there without turning Harry into an unlikable prat, which JKR's revolting "jealous chest(pants)-monster" metaphor does, IMO.

    And the flashbacks lend themselves to film MUCH more effectively than they do the written word. Yes they cut a lot out, which is always a bit disappointing, but we still got the important stuff condensed to a point where they didn't become the slightest bit tiresome.

    Additionally, I LOVED Jim Broadbent as Slughorn, he too was much more likeable than in the book, and Daniel Radcliffe during that part when he's pretty much high on Felix Felicis just cracks me up. :Biggrin:
