So StSluggers is the cafe version of ESPN? :-?

He's more like the Cafe version of Liberace.

Considering these comments are coming from the Cafe's version of Officers Farva and Fife, respectively, I'll give them the appropriate weight.

Actually have you read the books? At some point soon Harry is going to be "not fine" at all.

I haven't read them but I've been told.


Read the first two books which were pretty good but the recycling theme got old. Been watching the movies but they are just too long and drawn out. Seems like they try to fit way too many stories in 3 hours.

Well they kinda have to. I know Harry grows up in the books but not at the rate he would if they followed the books to the tee for the movies. Nobody wants to see a 29 year old Harry Potter. :-b

However I doubt anyone would complain at seeing a 29 year old Hermione Granger. :-D

The books grew as the characters grew up. The first one was only about 300 pages so it was easy enough to just make the book into a movie. By the time they started making the 3rd movie they had to start cutting big chunks of the side stories otherwise every move would be 4 hours.
