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 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.
