I don't like Tonks in HBP... I liked her in OoTP, but in HBP she just wasn't what she was described as in the book... I also don't think that Fred and George are funny enough in the movies.... Don't get me wrong, I love them, but their just not funny enough... I also didn't like Petunia and Vernon in OoTP... It was just weird and ugh to me in the movie...

I think that Michael Gambon was actually pretty good in HBP, but I'm not that big a fan of Harris, since I think that his age made him weak, like his voice for example, but I thought he was pretty good...

I kind of agree when it comes to Tonks. Though, I think it comes down to the fact that we don't see enough of her in the film to compare her to the book version. I reckon that if we saw her character more, we'd be able to get to know her better, if you get me.

Tonks she was great in OotP but she changed to much in HBP

hm...i guess i agree with the all of you on Micheal Gambon being the Dumbledore...i didnt like him that much in you know GoF and OoTP because he seemed to look tough and stricter than Dumbledore is potrayed in the book.i have always imagined Richard Harris as the actual Dumbledore
you know in the scene in GoF i guess he shows Harry a memory...and then after coming back.he sits down frustrated on the steps and says that 'something is missing out there'.he looked really feirce and frustrated which i have never read about Dumbledore being like that...the only time he was firm was in HBP when Harry didnt get the memory from Slughorn and the other time was when Dumbledore was explaining Harry the prophecy back in the book in OoTP.
otherwise he always had this twinkle in his eyes and was always eecentric how much ever inner demons he must be fighting against...

I just don't like the person who played Fleur, she didn't fit the description from the book at all. I was really dissapointed with her.

You know, I was a bit disappointed in Kingsley Shacklebolt. He wasn't at all what I expected him to be, and he isn't portrayed very well in the movies as he is in the books.

I'm with the majority, I don't think Bonnie-Ginny is very much like book-Ginny at all. I like them both, don't get me wrong, but their personlities and qualities are different.

I wish the Tonks/Lupin relationship in HBP would have been more like the book - I think there was some character development lost there that maybe would have made Tonks more like the character we know in the books.

While Clemence Posey is beautiful, she is no Fleur. Fleur had almost mythical beauty that CGI could have added, Ms. Posey just isn't flawless like the book's Fleur. Her acting was fine, it was more her appearance for me. As an aside, I couldn't disagree more. Alan Rickman is marvelous as Snape. The sneer, the appearance, and just the right level of dislike. Sometimes in books, word choices by the author as interpretted by the reader lead us one way or another. I believe Snape's behavio is one of these times, big ups to Rickman(also the best Sheriff of Nottingham ever)

i think trelawney is a bit different in books it doesnt mean emma thomson is bad-its just weird.more or less all the characters were diferent in books and it has to do with how every single reader has imagined them through the pages and their own imagination.in the movies its the actors that make the characters i think..

Slughorn is an interesting one. Looks concerned, he's like the opposite from the book. Tall and slim instead of shortish and round. But the way Broadbent plays him really makes sense if you're looking at bookslughorn

Omg so I'm not the only one who hates the actor Michael Gambon who plays Dumbledore oh no I can't believe they got this guy to play him.I loved Richard Harris he was the best one for this part but we can't turn time around and bring him back from the dead.So when Dumbledore died in HBP I didn't cry not one bit but if Richard was in it I would have balled my eyes out.I agree with everything else what everyone has said so thats engough of my two cents for now.lol

I really like Michael Gambon as Dumbledore. He is the Dumbledore I imagined while reading the books.
I don't like Ginny in the film. I am not a huge fan of her in the books too but there she is still better than in the films.

And Tonks is not at all like it's said in the books. She isn't funny and always making jokes. I was disappointed about that because I thought she would make OotP funnier. And in HBP were only two scenes with her.

For me, I have to say Michael Gambon's Dumbledore in POA - OOTP. I loved him in HBP. But before that, especially in GOF when he throttled Harry, I really didn't like him as Dumbledore. Dumbledore would never harm Harry that way.

agree with you..i'm kinda disappointed when I saw Clemence as Fleur don't get me wrong she's beautiful but in the book JK.Rowling describes Fleur usually dimmed everyone else by comparison..i didn't see it in Clemence

I completely agree with you. That's the one character I really wished they profiled more. I was looking forward to seeing what they would do in HBP with the relationship between Lupin and Tonks, but was sadly disappointed in the extreme lack of screen time.

I say Tonks, but because of her lack of screentime I'm not gonna be too harsh about it. But question: what does she mean by saying, "Wotcher, Harry!" all of the time? Does 'wotcher' mean something in the UK that I'm not aware of?

I say Luna, but only slightly, since her hair isn't dirty-blonde like it was in OOTP. Yes, I've read that thing 11 times; I should know. But other than the hair color, Evanna is PERFECT!

But really, I say Ginny. She's not as gorgeous as the book describes her to be.

Fleur. In the book, she's a complete ditz. In the movie, she's a strong (enough) person and not at all "airy". I can't wait to see her in DH!
