General Potter Discussion

Recommended Posts

I think this is one thread that is needed. You find something new about Potter (an interview, hell knows) and you simply don't have a place to post and discuss it. Here you can discuss ANYTHING at all, so long it's Potter related.

I think it`s a total genius to make Snape the greatest hero of the saga.

 

I agree with that, although I think the execution in the movies wasn't the best one. I mean, when I watched Harry Potter (two weeks before Deathly Hallows 2 came out - yes, for the first time), I didn't know Snape would be the good guy, not having read the books before... For some reason I wasn't THAT surprised, but I still was.

problem with movies, though I don`t see how else they could handle it, is that school life took the backseat to Good vs Evil. And Snape was mostly developed thought classes and after classes stuff in books 1-6. Which wasn`t the case with movies.

The universe is great but I kind of feel it's a major writing flaw that Harry is like the six or seventh most interesting character in it at best when he's the title character? But if the series had been Neville Longbottom and the... instead, I think there still would have been the same issues because of how JKR viewed the younger generation. They couldn't be killers, their romances were relegated to cutesy teen comic relief, they weren't really inventive in a way that enhanced the story. So overall, you have movies about children carrying on the battles of more interesting adults, but there's hardly any time to show just why these adults are so compelling and the main kids don't get to be more dynamic characters to compensate for that.
