Default Which do you prefer, the films or books? And why?


Which do you prefer, the films or the books?

Growing up reading the books they will always be special to me, paired with nostalgic memories. They first brought the magic of the wizarding world to me, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the films as they made my imagination a reality, seeing the magic unfold.
Both therefore are extremely important within my life however I think I will have to say I prefer the movies. They are my go to mode of entertainment so I feel I have to say the films.

books! i read them all like eight times as a child/teenager and i'm still in love with the world and characters. i'm not in love with everything j.k. does or says though so i'm actively trying to make the hp world more inclusive to all of those j.k. forgot or left out on purpose. the films are very fun to watch and i admire how much effort and detail was put into them (i know rarely any other films that have so many tiny background details and thought put into them) but you'll never get as much information as if you read the books and for me they are the only thing that can truly transport me into that world.

I loved the books, they were magic. However the movies brought the books to imagination!

I enjoy both but prefer the books. You can use your imagination more and get lost between the pages. Plus they have more details in

I love both for different reasons! But I would have to go with the books because we know more information about everyone and everything!

I would say it depends on my mood for the time. Sometimes I feel too lazy and don't want to read so then I'd prefer to watch the movies. However, I do think the book does a better job at allowing the reader to experience the world of Hogwarts better.

i do love both, and it depends on my mood. i do think the books go into more details and experiences in more depth though.

quill Written Words - Moving Pictures

I love the books more than I love the movies but I feel they strengthen each other. Some things are harder to picture alone and the movies help painting a complete picture, sometimes.

I read the first two books before I watched the first movie and this granted me the opportunity to shape the characters in my mind before the movies gave me Radcliffe, Watson, Grint.

So.. I love both but I love the books better, harder, more!
