Jk not ok
I’m getting sick of filmmakers taking liberties with their book adaptations. Last week me and the wife sat down to watch Harry Potter And The Woman In Black, and I was absolutely horrified at the way they’d trashed JK Rowling’s work.
I understand you have to make some cuts, and even I support the fact they excised all the quidditch sequences, but frankly I don’t remember any of those ghosts being in the books. They made Ron and Hermione an old married couple, while Harry remained the same age, with no explanation. There’s no sign of Snape or Dumbledore, and for some baffling
reason they make Hedwig a dog instead of an owl. And I’m all for gender- blind casting, but having established that Voldemort’s a man in the rest of the series, they suddenly make him a woman in this one. Worst of all, though, is the ridiculous decision to have Harry not do any magic in the whole film. It’s as if he ditched Magic in his final year and switched to Law. I’ve no idea what JK Rowling was thinking letting them do this, but frankly it’s ruined the whole series for me.
