You go, girl! Hermione is possibly my favorite Harry Potter character (after Hagrid - Oh, I shouldna told ya that) and a lot of the story's tone comes from her almost reidiculous discipline and her iron cored sense of loyalty and honor. She's "Martha" - and always in control of the situation. A weak Hermione, even in the face of her growing complex emotions, isn't Hermione. No, she's going to need all of her strength and cunning to spend her life looking after Ron, afterall. I bet it's been a family tradition that it's tough being Mrs Weasley - of whatever generation. Imagine raising Fred and George? Don't think those genes will be back? No, she'll need to be a towering character of enormous patience and good sense - in a word, Hermione.

Daniel Radcliffe
I think Daniel is the best character! He looks just how i imagened him. A young ,skinny ,hot ,tall and adventurous boy. He is Harry Potter! Dan is great!
Best character ever! He is sooooooooo hot! Nearly everyone I know thinks hes so hot. They nearly all have a crush on him! I mean it! Before he was an actor i bet every girl in like every grade had a crush on him. Well i do!
Emma Watson
Now lots of people thing by the time the goblet of fire came out she looked as cute as ever.That pink dress looked brill on her though!I think that Emma is Hermione! She is so suitible!I loved that bit where Emma hugs Dan and that stupid Marinda Richardson found them out. I loved that way Emma goes all gobsmacked. The next day Emma plays it sooooo well when she reads the paper aloud. My fave Emma mome is when she tries to tell Dan what Rupert told her to tell him. She just did it soooooooo well. And then Rupert gives Dan a look of pure disgust.
Rupert Grint
Oh the best thing about Rupert he can make such great faces! It makes me laugh my socks off every time! I think Rupert is great for Ron! He is brill at being an actor.
I love Rupert as a friend. But i would never have a crush on him! Seriously! I do no way think Rupert is handsome,hot or attractive!
Tom Felton
Tom is brill for Draco, cause he can smirk at something so well! He looks someone who is in trouble alot! Tom is good looking, that is the only promblem! If Tom was ugly that would be fat or smelly he would be even better!
Maggie Smith
Great for Mc Gonagall! Whoever chose her, I think it was a great move for the film. I mean she looks like a teacher. And that way she can scold so well is so scary! I mean she is natrually a great teacher!
You can never feel hatred for her unless your mean. But I always feel affection
for her!
Michael Gambon
Micheal is no way near as good at playing Dumbledore as the old one. I really miss the old one. Michael is quite good, but not close enough! I think they should find a new one!
He is so important part of all the characters! I think he gets really shocked in the goblet of fire.
Alan Rickman
Oh god, and Alan,who could choose someone to be Snape better than Alan? Develish,bitter,mean,horrid and spiteful. He looks like he works with potions.
My fave Alan mome Daniel Radcliffe
I think Daniel is the best character! He looks just how i imagened him. A young ,skinny ,hot ,tall and adventurous boy. He is Harry Potter! Dan is great!

Lovely to find another Harry Potter fan! I agree; I hate what this movie did to Hermione. She's my favorite character, but they've really dumbed her down for the movies I think. I loved her in the first film, but it seems as if she has gotten "cooler" and stupider with each successive film since then. Doggone it, I want my bushy-haired, bossy know-it-all back!

Ah, well. At least we still have Snape, who has always been my hero, even before there were movies with Alan Rickman playing him. :)

BTW, thanks for your comment on my blog; I'm glad you liked the article. I'm enjoying checking out your blog, too -- nice to find another "Rent" fan, too! *waves*

:::Waving back!:::

I think the movies are trying to make them more into "typical" teens - and ignoring their unique personalities.

Kia Piskin.

Why yes Dad, the world is a very small place indeed. I only just saw your message, it's been years since I've been on this fansite. I didn't expect to see a message from you tbqh. (':

We can go back and forth about the book versus the movie. We can say that we liked this part better in the book or we liked how they showed this part in the movie. At the end of the day a movie is someone else's imagination. When you read a book you get to imagine what things look like. When you watch a movie you get to see how someone else or a group of people envision the Harry Potter world to be.
