As I grew older, I realized this advice shouldn’t always apply. But in this case, it does. Avatar ImagePollytomat says: Happy Birthday! Avatar ImageFelipe_Q says: Awesome!

Though I have disagreed intensely with some of the choices you have made in adapting the novels, I believe you have done an excellent job overall in translating the stories into the visual medium!

Avatar Imagemolly43 says: HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY STEVE! I don't blame Steve for the quality of the HP films. He can screen write the hp movies but can only keep in what the directors allow him to keep in. I enjoy watching hp movies directed by Chris Columbus (hpss and hpcs) and Alfonso Cuaron (hppa). All the others started going downhill from there, but if you notice Steve has been the screen writer for all of the hp films. I think Chris and Alfonso allowed Steve to be more true to the book's character. For some reason David Yates seem to misinterpret JKR's acknowledging that the books were getting darker as a physical thing rather than a psychological thing. I wonder if I should even bother buying the other movies for fear that I might be buying a soundtrack with a black screen. I feel like the David Yates haven't read all of the books only the ones he's directing. I think if he did, he'd know better what to leave in and what to take out. If he has read all of the books then maybe he needs to re-read them. Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Happy belated birthday!Avatar ImageMadam Snape says: Happy Bithday, Steve Kloves!!!
