Well I didn't hate it!

(Those who were unfortunate to be present when I saw the first will understand why that's immpressive!)

I did a much better job of watching it as a film rather than the book as people told me I should have done with the first. Thus I put up with the little things which were wrong and those things which didn't look like how I imagined them and it was only with the appearance of Peter Pettigrew on the Marauder's Map that I started getting annoyed. There was even one thing which was better in the film than the book.

spoilers )

The person who hadn't read the book felt it work while the two of us who had felt too much had been missed out to entirely make sense. I suppose if you haven't read the book there's a lot that's not explained, but one does not know about it and so doesn't pick up on it. Like who Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs are!

I've also realised part of what I don't like about films of books. For all I say things look wrong and Hermione's hair is just not frizzy enough and far too manageable, I do not tend to visualise hugely. I'm not particularly a visual thinker and concentrate more on what the characters think and feel. However, that doesn't across well in the film and gets missed out. Because this is one of the main things I read for, I feel short-changed when I see the film.

Anyway, I've been typing for an hour and a quarter and probably ought to go to bed. (and it's taken by another 15 mins editing to make it work!)

Rock on, you're a Ravenclaw! Intelligent,
level-headed, and mysterious, you can often be
found in the library, studying. You are smart and
get the best grades in your class. In fact,
you probably got all Outstandings on your O.W.L.s!
Your house is respectable and has a good
Quidditch team. The founder of your house was
Rowena Ravenclaw. Go Eagles!
