well….happy birthday.

oh and what hagrid said. because I can’t think of anything nice to say about your screen writing.
it could have been loads better than what it was. however, many Harry Potter fans are grateful for the small snippets of reality.

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.

Happy Bithday, Steve Kloves!!! The only american Jo Rowling approved of working on Harry Potter!!! Or in her own words: she granted him the permission to “… tear [her] babies apart”. You’ve done a great job, considering all the limitations that came with it. Congrats!
