I didn't like any of the changes that were made. In GoF, it would've been better if they had given more importance to the World Cup. The exclusion of house-elves angered me as well.

In OotP, they should have given more importance to the Dept of Mysteries scene. That could've given the dreadfully boring movie an interesting half-an-hour.

And I think they completely destroyed Ginny in the movies. She's supposed to be brave, gorgeous and independent, but in the movies she's shown as an over-emotional and weak girl

I have to say COS was the best. Most loyal I mean! The first one was good, but why miss half the tasks at the end? Beyond the 3rd film I can't even talk about...COS was brilliant and the others may have been more complicated but the fact is, like for example the fourth one, they keep all the "entertaining" parts in, and miss out the actual story line...I mean don't get me wrong, I credit the directors for trying but hey. COS definitely does it for me! XD

The DH movies were a big disappointment for me (especially part 2). There were so many things I hated, I don't even know where to start. But overall what generally irked me was the lack of one important poltergeist: Peeves. It just made me so angry. I don't even understand why they left him out.
However if you push aside all the things I hate there are many things I love as well. For example I liked almost all the actors/actress', they fit the characters almost perfectly. Especially in the first movie. I loved the animals and magical creatures and items. And I fell in love with Hogwarts for the second time. All the magic, the portreyes, the rooms and classrooms, the dungeons and so on. İt was wonderfull.
But still, none of the movies could take the place of the books in my heart.

I agree, Chamber of Secrets was the best AND most loyal. There were actually two things left out - you forgot the Valentines Party, but it is one of the only two that people who haven't read the book would enjoy.

I agree. they didnt try to stuff the stuff they missed in the first movie back in, but everything else was spot on. It is, in my opinion, the best move by far.

The FORK. Be afraid.

I definitely wished they would have kept Peeves in the movies.

And as for changes I did like, I like the fact that they hinted that Neville and Luna would get together.

1. Changes I liked

Philosopher's Stone
- cutting the Harry-Malfoy duel (too childish)

Chamber of Secrets:
- cutting the deathday party (too boring)

Prisoner of Azkaban:
- a slightly more deranged Trelawney
- the two songs: Double Trouble and A Winter's Spell (the latter I want to have so badly)

Goblet of Fire:
- Moaning Myrtle being playful (her crush on Harry should have been clearer in the books)
- no Ludo Bagman (it was, after all, a fairly unimportant subplot)
- John Williams being replaced by Patrick Doyle (what a spectacular score)
- Harry/Hermione scenes, she genuinely cares about him

Half-Blood Prince:
- the scene in the beginning with Ginny and Mrs Weasley
- Ginny feeding Harry
- Ginny helping him with the book
- the added Burrow battle scene
- no Luna Quidditch commentary
- no crazy Malfoy obsession (quite disturbing)

Deathly Hallows:
- Hermione and Harry dancing (I'm sorry but Ron is a lousy husband, she deserves better)
- Hermione being tortured, best desperate screams I ever heard

2. Changes I didn't like

Chamber of Secrets:
- the entire cheesy ending (why is the entire hall clapping for Hagrid?!)

Prisoner of Azkaban:
- the Shrunken Head waffling through the DVD interviews (kill it, please)

Goblet of Fire:
- the short Quidditch World Cup, but then again, who can blame Newell for WB's obsession with short movies?
- the third task
- no Mrs Weasley hugging Harry, it showed her being maternal towards him better than anything else

Order of the Phoenix:
- moody Harry (we need capslock Harry)
- no failed Cho and Harry date (what the hell?!)
- no Rita Skeeter
- no bigger Snape's worst memory
- no career advice
- no R/H prefect issues
- Nicholas Hooper's music, slightly too simple
- basically the entire movie...

Half-Blood Prince:
- no fiery Ginny
- no Gaunt or Morfin, we don't know anything about Voldemort's past now except him being a creepy teenager)
- no Slughorn stalking Harry
- no common room kiss
- no battle after Dumbledore's death
- no Dumbledor's funeral (could anyone please explain me how cutting that influenced DH?)

Deathly Hallows:
- no Dumbledore history (why mention it if you don't want to properly explain it anyway?)
- Ron's radio obsession
- all the awkward unscored silences while Desplat wrote music for some of them
- no discussion after Bathilda Bagshot
(oh, she jsut changes into Nagini, fair enough, no big deal...)

- no complete flashback of Harry's parents being killed (honestly, you have 4 freaking hours at your disposal!)
- Lovegood's 'NO YOU CAN'T!'
- the final showdown between Harry and Voldemort (why is V making all these primal sounds and why no applause when Voldemort is killed?)
- the Great Hall scene afterwards without music and respect for Harry (we need emotion, there, Yates...)
- the fact that two movies manage to ruin a perfect script
- DH2 being the shortest of all 8 films
- David Yates's approach in general to Voldemort: Newell gave him lines and makes him scary

As I've said in another thread, my favorite change was in DH Part 1 when Harry and Hermione dance.

Changes I disliked were:
* The Burrow burning in HBP.
* Eliminating the Gaunt backstory in HBP.
* Harry breaking the Elder Wand in pieces in DH Part 2 instead of using it to repair his own wand first.
* Eliminating Dursley scenes in GOF and HBP. Also, they should have retained the deleted scene in DH Part 1 when Harry says his goodbyes to the Dursleys.
* Making Durmstrang all boys and Beauxbatons all girls in GOF.
* Eliminating the Lockhart scene at St. Mungo's in OOTP (maybe kind of trivial, but I would have liked to see him again if only for a few minutes).

They cut out so much from OOTP and I will never forgive that fact.

They cut out a lot of the fight at the ministry and that was my favorite part of the books. I stayed up a really long time to read that part, I broke bedtime to read that part. It makes me SO mad.

Not to mention in the Deathly Hallows, there was this GREAT deleted scene where Harry says what might be his final goodbye to the Dursleys. It was great. It showed that they didn't quite hate each other, their hatred wasn't to the core. I'm so mad they cut that.

Default How loyal are the movies to the books?

Hi everyone, this is my first post here. How loyal do you think the movies are to the books and do you think the movies did the books justice?

For me I love the books because they always give so much more detail than what you can get from the movies, but I like the Harry Potter films in a different way and almost treat them as two different things entirely.

What do you guys think? thanks!

I hate how Ginny in the movies were not like Ginny in the books!! The ginny in the books were vivacious, active, fun, confident. Ginny in the movies just fell into the background.

Completely agree. I liked the actress that played her but the character they gave her was not Ginny. It was watered down sooooooo much. I mean... come on.

I realized around the time the fourth movie came out that the films simply wouldn't be 100% faithful adaptations of the books. That is no fault of the filmmakers though. I know they left a lot of good stuff and characters out of the films but at some point you have to draw the line and realize there's only 2.5 hours of running time. But a majority of the themes and crucial scenes did make it in, which is more than you can say for most book to movie adaptations.

And disregarding the books, the films are cinematic masterpieces in their own right. Ultimately, that was the goal of the directors.

I agree with treating books and movies as two different things. I read the books for Harry's more detailed thoughts and insight, and watch the films for the more immersive overall experience.

I understand that some things had to be changed/removed so that the running time of each film weren't too long. However, I'd have loved to have seen Peeves and I wished that James and Lily were portrayed by younger adults considering they were about 21 when they died. It is little things like that.

After the third movie, which was one of my favorite books, I learned I had to appreciate the movies for being just that and that they wouldn't hold true to the books.

The cliff notes edition of the books would probably be relatively loyal to the movies, as they covered most of the big picture items but many of the finer details got tweaked / removed. And looking back, you could see why because we'd have six hours (at least) for one movie which wouldn't really be realistic. Not to mention would probably have a whole lot of fluff in there, which wouldn't really be cinematically appealing.
