Another thread hijacked but compulsive reading!
I'd like to pass on my thoughts as follows:
Prince Harry has always been known as Prince Harry and never Prince Henry and he is not a Lord! Please see link http://www.princeofwales.gov.uk/princes/harry/harry_index.html
which starts.......Prince Henry, always known as Prince Harry.....and this is a government site, not some made up one. Perhaps you could spread to word and put people right!
LOTR v Harry Potter. Sorry but no comparision there! Only thing was that they both came out at the same time. Yes, LOTR won 11 Adademy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay (Adaptation), Film Editing, Visual Effects, Art Direction, Costume Design, Makeup, Sound Mixing, Original Song, Original Score) but none were for acting! Besides Harry Potter is the wrong type of film to get oscar-worthy acting. As for Rupert Grint - well he was the best of the lot! As for their acting abilities - the actors act on the direction of the director! It also doesn't help the fact that different directors have been involved in the stories - no continuation.
We are who we are. You could not be Andy Murray as there is only 'one' Andy Murray, no more than I could be Maria Sharapova (though I wouldn't mind her body!). How you
'see' Harry Potter in your mind may be slightly different to how I 'see' Harry Potter in my mind. The films are trying to give a portrayal of it, not exact copy because they would be unable to do that based on a book. The only person who could give an accurate one would be the person who wrote it.
