OoTP wasn't bad on-screen, but unfortunately since it's such long book, it was hard to get all the plots. The final fight seen though, was pretty good, with everybody wizarding all over the place.

3 days or a little less on the deathly hollows.... definately good story, and nicely summed up... some of the side stories were impressive......

Dave,

The dragonLance series is one of my all time favorite.....I really loved the twins Trilogy........alot of people dont try it cause its DND based....but im telling it is by far the most in depth world out there...with some really great charecters and really awsome story arcs.........if you can make it through the first 3 books of the series you open up endless other books to go to.

Raistlin FTW.....

I think the movies get progressively worse. If you watch the last one you will notice they really use camera angles to attempt to make harry and ron look shorter. Unfortunately, you can tell they are dwarfing all the other kids in the school. It almost looks like they got held back several years in magic school. How sad.

How does SCIFI even compare to fantasy, other then the fact the crappy bookstores put them together.

The best current fantasy series is: (IMHO)

Steven Erickson's Malazan book(s) of the fallen. (10 book series, book 7 released this year.) Good military based fantasy, with a pretty unique magic system. Really really good.

Best SCIFI:

David Weber's Honor Harrington series, also from a great military perspective.


Potter is ok at best, they are written for a child to read, both series above are totally the other way around.

Starwars is good sometimes...I really liked the bounty hunter series. Some of the Warhammer 40k books are good too....and a few of the Alien books are entertaining......A series that suprised me in being good was the "Doom" series, but then again If a book is written about anything I like I tend to give it a good chance!......Still, from my experiance, nothing compares to dragonlance.....
