1. I thought that they would be women, not men. Not actual sisters but at least female. That would have been cool to see.

2. I didn't think they would be so... "Glam".

3. The most magical things about them was the fact they put magical words in their songs. Other than that they looked and sounded like a regular old band.

I imagined there music to be just like that and I loved the lyrics, very creative, but for some reason I thought they were women in the book. weird?? Maybe I miss read a part or something.

I think they messed it all up. The way the books described the Weird Sisters, they seemed like a classical group. And their pictures on the Famous Witches and Wizards Card had them holding violins and cellos and stuff. Not electric guitars. And the way the dressed.....V_V

i like Jarvis Cocker anyway... so bias.
i liked the catchy lyrics, thought the music would sound different. i mean im not disappointed. but i thought it would be completly random, whereas they looked like a normally top of the pops band.

i was thinking ir was going ti be completly nuts...

I didn't spend much time imagining what they were like when I read the books. So I didn't expect much in the movie. But I was impressed. They were really hip and had a good sound. I loved the deleted scene with them and the Hippogriff song.

Some people, perhaps, would say that there
was little to choose between the two ways

I believe they nailed it as the Weird Sisters. Exactly as I imagined the Weird Sisters: talented and hirsute. =D

Same here! I don't feel dumb now. Yay for me!

I was actually looking forward to seeing them in the movie! The whole Yule Ball scene was that part I wanted to see most. That was like a major important part in the book and I wanted to see how it would turned out to be and they made it look just amazing!

I liked the idea of the Weird Sisters, and I liked the way they were portrayed. But I still wasn't so crazy about them in the movie...Just my opinion.
