i thought ginny looked like the Australian prime minister!! :) i loved pretty much all of it, but i was a bit disappointed that they didnt feature nevilles grandma or the bit with kreature at the end (but i can forgive that one as they didnt show the friendship that harry builds with him in part 1)
Yeah, it's at least one of my favourite series of all time. And I was one of the first, and have probably been rather insufferable due to that in the past, but I'm working on it xD My older brother (bless him xD) read the first one to me when I was 6, because I didn't like reading, but then he refused to read me the second one, so I had to do it myself :P And loved it. So... I blame him for my book obsession :D He created a monster :P
And the fourth book is possibly my favourite. When you're reading it at 7 or 8 it scares the crap out of you O_O Murders, graveyards, giant snakes... yeah.
I've read a fair few fantasy series, as it's just an awesome genre. Dragons? Magic? Elves? Yes please!
My favourite (other, perhaps, than HP. I can never decide, really) is the Discworld, because it's hilarious. More of a parody than anything, though. I also love the Abhorsen series (Garth Nix), Magician (Raymond E. Feist) the Lord of the Rings, Eragon (sort of. It was less interesting when I reread it recently. Kind of... cliché). And I love Neil Gaiman books, particularly American Goda (and Sandman, if that counts).
Do you read a lot of fantasy? And are you interested in any other genres?
Me and my friend are both pretty negative, so it works out well xD
I suppose I love HP because I've always loved HP (read the first one when I was 6, it was only out a year, and not famous, really), but I suppose... I love the traditional good vs. evil, I love the humanity of the characters (their good qualities and their faults). I love the idea of magic, but I love how it didn't fix everything OR ruin everything. People are just people. There are petty criminals, truly evil people, racists... and also brave, good people. I think it just taught me a lot about the human race when I was growing up, in a humorous and amazing way (as a 'muggle', it really shows you about the so-called 'superiority' of a race - they don't know how anything works, and are useless without their magic :P).
I haven't seen the last HP film yet, as I'm currently on holiday (and cannot speak Italian :P) but I'm probably going to see it this Saturday or Sunday. I've heard conflicting accounts. Some said it was awesome, but a friend told me that "We will have much to mock", so... xD I've never been a huge fan of the movies. I enjoy them, but mostly because I mock and joke throughout them. However, I worship the books :D
I haven't read Lucifer, but I need to! It sounds awesome, because he was always just awesome in Sandman... In an evil, twisted way :P
I haven't seen the Avatar: The Last Airbender film, because I heard it was awful, I adore the show (oh so much...) and I don't want it spoiled for me. The film just looks pretty bad, and I hear they even got names wrong or something :S I mean, what the hell? What about you? What did you think?
According to the facebook page for it over 1000 people have RSVP'd yes so there will definitely be loads of cool people there, not actually sure what will be going on though, I know the gathering starts on Friday and ends on Sunday and I'm sure they will have thins planned.
Hmm... I don't think the new Disney can really compare to the older stuff. I adore The Lion King (though my absolute favourite is Beauty and the Beast). On the other hand, I think both The Princess and the Frog and Tangled were definitely worth watching, but they'll never be as special to me. But that might be because I didn't grow up with them xD
As for comics, my only real experience is with Watchmen (which I thought was amazing - I've been meaning to read V for Vendetta) and Sandman (though I've only read up to Fables and Reflections so far). Sandman was terrifyingly awesome :D My view of comics is basically that, if written well, they're a blend of literature (which I love) and art (which I also love). So... yeah, awesome. I've also read Akira, the manga, but that was a long time ago :P
