    I think a lot of the time it’s unfair when people compare books and their movie counterparts so closely because they are two different forms of media. They will always have differences and that is what makes reading a book and seeing the movie a fun experience. Each is supposed to give you a different feel/view of the same story. That being said, the movies shouldn’t be changing everything because then it would just make it a whole other story.

    Also, I saw the last Harry Potter movie and except for the fact that they didn’t show this one scene I was looking forward to seeing happen after reading it in the book, I was really glad with how it turned out. I cried a lot in the theatre, while watching that movie.
