Let`s see what they make of Book 6 first, I wasn`t terribly happy with the film of Book 5,.... in fact I was seriously disappointed.

I think it is a little sad that the films are getting darker and less suitable for younger children. My 7 and 9 years olds do not want to watch the last film, toooooo scary...such a shame, they loved the first one, after all I was under the impression that they are childrens books, maybe I am wrong?

When i first read the first harry potter book i was only 7 and voldemort gave me nightmares! So, i think its easy to see that the later books-which are definitely darker than the first few-would be scarey to younger children. The films actually put the scarey pictures in your face, with the book you can make up your own images. Also, i think its important to read the books before the films, because they are so much better!

I can't wait to see it either but I am dissapointed with them making it into two films, it's probably because the way the book is written if the writers of the films miss anything out then the fans won't know whats happening, but I don't want to wait for the second one to come out. I would rather watch it all at once.

Deathly Hallows is going to be 2 films? I hadn't heard that. Is that the official line or is it just a rumour?

I think the point that each book got darker is inevitable. What else do kids do as they grow up? They lose some of their innocence and (sometimes) get caught up in things that cause strife and grief. Even Hitler was a sweet innocent lad once.

I'm eagerly anticipating Halfblood Prince - which is my favourite book by far. My 2008 movie watching experiences suddenly took off last week (after a poor start with Golden Compass and AvP2) with Iron Man, which is excellent. Just Indy, Prince Caspian, Bond 22 and of course Harry Potter to make my viewing pleasure complete this year.

I agree with you the films are bound to get darker as the the characters grow up. I didn't know about the two films thing either. But I can't wait for Narnia to come out though!

I think thats ridiculous. I mean, why make a childs series an adult one half wat through? In my opinion it completely POINTLESS

Even though I'm disgusted that the HBP film was post-poned, I've seen the trailers and they have really stirred up my enthusiasm. Mind you, by the time the film comes out, all of the trailers we've seen will have left little for the film to surprise us with. The film will be very different from the book, probably not in a good way. JKR should have went with a tv series in my opinion. It could spin off into a soap to replace Grange Hill!

I think you are missing the point. The books follow the character evolve and grow up. It's only natural that in doing this, the books/films will become darker and more 'grown up'. Also, I thought that the Order of The Phoenix film was great. It was always gonna be difficult as alot of people thought that book 5 was the weakest and trying to transit this into the film was never going to win everyone over.

I don't think the 7th book should be split into 2 (firstly, cause I'm just impatient and can't wait that long, and secondly, because it conjures up images of a 30yr old Daniel Radcliffe still playing a school boy (does he really annoy anyone else?).
Apparantly, in this one out in summer, they make Dumbledore's death look like an accident, or so my friend said, anyone know if that's true????? (I hope not) =)
