    And now you're making me reconsider my affection for the Harry Potter series.

    Oh well. I suppose it's good for me to have my thinking shaken up a bit.

    I feel guilty now. Sorry. Go ahead and like it. Don't stop liking it because of me. What do I know?

    Hey, don't feel guilty! You're just causing me to look at things from another angle.

    You're quite right, of course. I've always thought the movies are far superior to the books (especially the later ones) and that Rowling, while creating a fascinating universe with a number of wonderful characters, hasn't a clue what to do with them when she's got them and from the 4th book on just hundreds of pages of nothing-very-much and wildly unbelievable plot developments and character inconsistencies.

    The movies have some flaws, most of which are unavoidable as adapations. It's a shame Kloves and co. didn't just get to do the whole lot completely their own way. Having a read a number of novel-length fan-fics which were better written and characterised than the real thing, it only convinces me more that Rowling was the very last person who should have been in charge of her own series.
