Well, in my book “Sorcerer’s Stone” tops the list of HP Book-to_Flick followed by “Chamber of Secrets”. HBP isn’t even close.

Prisoner of Azkaban is still my favorite movie. I wish Tim Burton would have directed one of the movies. I would love to see his vision of the Hogwarts world.

Tim Burton would’ve been interesting to see. They should’ve used him instead of one of the directors they used.

Congratulations Jo!

I can’t really think of a better villain than Voldemort – maybe he comes in second to Hitler in my mind (even though they’re practically the same person).

Great news! Jo is my favorite author, although PD James is pretty close. I am glad that Jo ’s work is being recognized. I think the HP stories will be read for a long, long time! I thought the ending of Half Blood Prince could have been a bit stronger, but liked the movie. I think that Deathly Hallows will surpass it easily though, as Warners are not going to cut out so much of the story.
