Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows-Let's Talk
So you've read the books and you've seen the latest film - part one anyhow. What did you think?
I want to start a discussion about it. I am curious what everyone thinks?
I still believe that the films are just like Cliff's Notes for the books, and I liked what this director did, but it would have been really hard to follow for people who hadn't read the books.
Don't think there is anyone like that out there? There is.
I think Yates has done a really good job in directing the 5th-7th, as these were clearly the hardest ones to work with in that they were extremely long books and grew more and more complicated as they went on.
I happen to like all the films, but LOVE the books and believe that everyone should read them. The UK versions are better-and yes they did change things in the American versions-UGH...Go get them, read them!

For those of you that have read them all and saw the Deathly Hallows Part One.. what did you think??
Here is a list of the films and directors
Chris Columbus directed the first two films, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, was directed by Alfonso Cuarón
Mike Newell directed the fourth entry, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, was directed by David Yates. Yates also helmed the sixth entry in the series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, as well as both parts of the seventh and final instalment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
