Not really. Read the books, they're great. The movies? Not so good.

For kids doesn't matter to me. I watch Finding Nemo, Toy Story, and The Lion King. Just never saw anything to interest me much with the HP movies. Doesn't mean they aren't good movies. However, Dune was a great book, but that ghastly movie...shiver!

Have you read the HP books? And I hate it how so many movies are a failure while the books on which they are based are great.

No, never read the HP books. It's not easy to compare a book to a movie. In a book, the author can create whatever he wants, and you the reader create it in your head. To then see the movie where they film maker cannot make everything, and even if he did, it wouldn't match what you created in your head.

That said, I thought the Lord Of The Rings movies are great, if not completely faithful to the books. I read mostly SciFi as a kid. Asimov, Bradbury, etc. Few were made into movies ( The Illustrated Man, not very good). Look at I Robot...at least they didn't try to make the book, they just took some principles, and made a different movie. And I liked that.

Sometimes I've seen movies, then not liked the book as much when I read it after. Some movies need to be taken on their own, that's harder if you've read the book. A Guy

Fair enough. LoTR films were quite good actually. And so was iRobot. Anyway, as you said above...
