Not my idea, although I don't remember where I read it, but damn if it isn't spot on.Production values on TV are great nowadays, and movies do NOT do justice to novels. Movies are for short stories, miniseries do great with a novel, and a series would be phenomenal for any series of novels.Still looking forward to it.

Which is probably too much to hope for.Actually, they had a test screening in Chicago a couple weeks ago and the consensus was EXTREMELY positive. Pretty much every reviewer I read LOVED the film, even without finished effects or the actual score. They say the pacing was just about perfect, VERY loyal to the book, any changes (were only a few) were upgrades, the action sequences are intense and the acting (especially by the trio) is easily the best of the series. They loved Nighy as Scrimgeour and say Ifans is perfect as Xeno Lovegood.

mitch wrote:Incredible film. Saw it twice over the weekend, taking my daughter the second time (and taking my wife to her first ever 3D viewing...but she had to watch it in 2D first).They really did this one right. I was a Harry-Cynic early one...the kiddie type first two films just didn't stand up in my mind to the Lord of the Rings films being released at the same time. But the series started to grow on me with the Prisoner of Azkaban, and I've been hooked ever since.Nothing but the highest kudos for Radcliffe, Watson, and Grint. Amazing that they started out as little kids 10 years ago, and developed into such incredible actors.
