  • Saw the movie last night . . . it was a worthless piece of crap.

    The books, however, are genius.

    • How would you rank the six Harry Potter books that have come out thus far?

      For me, it'd probably be something like this...

      1. Half Blood Prince
      2. Goblet of Fire
      3. Prisoner of Azkaban
      4. Chamber of Secrets
      5. Sorceror's Stone
      6. Order of the Phoenix

          That's almost exactly how I'd put them except I think I'd switch Sorcerer's Stone with Order of the Phoenix.

            For me, it looks like this:

            1) Prisoner of Azkaban (why, I am not entirely sure)
            2) Order of the Phoenix
            3) Goblet of Fire
            4) Chamber of Secrets
            5) Half Blood Prince
            6) Sorceror's Stone

              Really? Half Blood Prince was definitely my favorite. Why do you have it ranked so low (I know people have different opinions but I just want to know)?

                  I honestly believe she decided half way through the series to make them more mature in themes. Yeah they're targetted at young adults, but not at the expense of making them enjoyable for all ages.
                  Actually, you're a bit off. As her audience grew up, so did her books. Instead of changing her target audience, she allowed her writing to evolve as their reading skills did. Those who read and found the first book interested, despite being much older, can still read and find the last one interesting.

                  • As far as ranking the books. First let me say, the first 3 and the last 3 I view as completely different. So, for the first 3, I'd have to say 3, 1, then 2. I wasn't a big fan of COS. As far as the last, more involved 3.

                    Half-blood Prince: Just simply the best, most involved book, IMO.
                    Goblet of Fire: Absolutely loved it. First really deep and involved book. Plus, had a unique story outline.
                    Order of the Pheonix: Never liked this one, because the first half of the book is just harry going through depression, got boring.

                    • It's amazing how hopeless the seventh book looks, after re-reading the sixth book. What with Dumbledore gone, Bill injured, etc., and the seemingly insurmountable task at hand at finding, and destroying the remaining horcruxes. Not to mention the fact that they have to find someway to kill Voldemort after the horcruxes are destroyed.

                        I wouldn't be surprised if after a few horcruxes went boom Voldemort came looking for a blue.

                          Voldemort can't feel the Horcruxes being destroyed.

                            • Yes Snape did cure DD. The thing is I can't seem to remember if DD had to tell snape how it happened in order for Snape to cure it. I'm reading a book 7 fanfict and it appears that Snape did know about the horcrux's but I don't buy it. Because DD said to Harry in HBP that they were the only two that knew about the Horcrux's.

                              Speaking of which...is there anyone in here who does infact think Snape is on the dark side? I'd like to see opinions of people who think he is.

                                I just don't like the guy so I just hope he is evil so he can get his ass kicked. Based on what I've seen people saying, he is probably good, but I hope not.
