Goblet of Fire: it's the Empire Strikes Back of the series.

(Wow, I've said a lot of nerdy things in my life, but that ranks up there with one of the nerdiest...)

A friend wanted me to read the first book back in the day, kept raving about it, so I did. It was a readable, paint-by-the-numbers, fantasy story, but I couldn't see what the big deal was. I have several on my shelf that are much better. Never bothered to read or watch more.

Everyone should read Sword of Truth and Gor instead

Spoiler alert: the Sword of Truth is libertarianism

Have never read them not seen the movies, but some day when I am really bored, I just might.

The one where Draco Malfoy buggered him. This is an English boarding school after all.

Fead the first book and found it okay but nothing special. I was expecting Roald Dahl and it wasn't close.

Saw the first two, maybe three movies. They were okay, I guess I liked the first one best? Can't remember.

Definitely an "entertainment as grooming" operation, as the content gets progressively darker, the young stars age into drug addicts, weirdos and couchers, and other human-hating elements are cultivated and encouraged.

Half Blood Prince.

Prisoner of Azkaban. The best book at showing the kids as teenagers, acting like teenagers, and the friendships that can and do endure from school.

Arnon Milchan and the Prisoner of Azerbaijan

It was a sales call gone very wrong. At least that’s the allegation being investigated after an Israeli company was accused of attempting to bomb the Armenian military on behalf of Azerbaijan during a test run of a suicide drone.

Now, the Israeli Defense Ministry has frozen the export license of an Israeli arms manufacturer while it looks into the claims.

An Aug. 13 report from the Hebrew-language daily newspaper Maariv revealed that the Israeli Defense Ministry recently received an unusual complaint, detailing claims that a team from Aeronautics Defence Systems was asked to strike an Armenian military position while demonstrating its Orbiter 1K drone in a live-fire test on July 7 in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The company was in the middle of finalizing the sale of the suicide drone to Azerbaijan.

The two Israeli drone operators on the trip refused to comply with the request, according to the report, so senior representatives from the company stepped in. They armed and deployed the drone themselves but missed the targets. An Armenian army colonel said two soldiers were lightly wounded in the attack.

The Orbiter 1K is known as a “suicide drone” — a small unmanned aerial vehicle that can carry payloads up to 4.4 pounds and fly directly into an enemy target, detonating a bomb and destroying itself in the process. Azerbaijan has allegedly usedthe Israeli suicide drones to attack Armenian troops in the past.

I started the first book and hated it so much I literally threw the book across the room around page 25. My kids liked them for a while then got bored with the books.

Book: Deathly Hallows. Film: Prisoner of Azkaban.

Ophelia said...

Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire are tied until I remember Hermione punching Draco

Prisoner of Azkaban. Read that book in 14 hours. I literally could not put it down.

Fun Fact: I was the first person to buy Deathly Hallows in South Korea. Ah, good times.

Haven't read the books, haven't seen the movie.

I'll stick with 'Bewitched'

Not a fan of HP. I preferred Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, loved the books, but it translated terribly to film. I think they only made one and it was such a bomb that they shelved all plans for the others.

hhstarr said...

My eldest daughter hated reading until HP came out. We read the whole series together. Her birthday is also around the time in July latest book would come out so we would go to the midnight party at Borders and laugh at everyone in character as we waited to buy the book. Great memories. I love the first, they were so young, but have watched them all and reread the books too many times to count. And cry every time (spoiler alert) Severus dies. At my school, there is always at least a couple kids reading those books at any given time. Can’t be that bad if it gets kids to read instead of goofing off.

Order of the Phoenix was my favorite book, but Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite movie.

Neville Longbottom is my favorite character. His birthday was yesterday.

None. I hate all the books/movies and the author. It's totally worthless literature. The movies bore me to death.

Cuddlebutt said...

Deathly Hallows was my favorite book. Probably Prisoner of Azkaban as favorite movie. I absolutely loved the whole series. My children also. For years my son dressed as Harry Potter. I would let him go to the store with me dressed as such. He would wave his wand (chopstick) at the automatic doors pretending magic. He wore his older sister's old witch robe before he outgrew it and got a proper robe. He did this from about 2.5 years old to 5 or 6. Then he only dressed for favorite character day at school. We listened to the audio books on long road trips. It was funny to see the generation gap as older people would ask "Why on earth is he dressed as Darth Vader?"
