The Harry Potter tag

An obvious first tag for my blog 🙂 I got these questions from Pretty Purple Polka Dots and it’s a pretty old tag but fun nevertheless. If you love Harry Potter and haven’t done this tag yet, do it on your blog and let me know!

Favourite Book?

My favourite is Prisoner of Azkaban – I am a huge Marauders fan, and this book has some of my favourite characters introduced.

Least Favourite Book?

If I had to choose, I’d say my least favourite book is Order of the Phoenix – for such a long book, it doesn’t feel like a huge amount happens. Plus this is the first book I ever cried at!

Favourite Movie?

The Philosopher’s Stone – it’s so faithful to the book and the trio are so cute in it.

My Favourite Films

Hello, and welcome to my first post.

I thought I’d start off with something to let people get to know me, so here is a countdown of my ten favourite films.

10. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

I love the Harry Potter books, but I think a lot of people would be surprised to know I’m not a huge fan of the movies. They just leave out too much important information. Nevertheless, I had to have one of the movies in my top ten – and Philosopher’s Stone is the closest to the original source.

9. The Inbetweeners Movie

This film never fails to make me laugh – I went through sixth form at the same time as Will, Simon, Jay and Neil and it was much more realistic than Skins or the USA shows that were released at the same time. I didn’t have orgies and smoke weed (I wasn’t one of the cool kids like the Skins crew ;P ) but I did have inappropriate crushes and my friend did have a crap car. Favourite quote of the movie? “I stopped believing in God when I realised it was just dog spelt backwards.”

8. Billy Elliot

Being from the North East, it should be illegal not to like this film. It’s just such an uplifting film with a great soundtrack, especially the serious amount of T-Rex. I’ve also seen the stage show in London, and love that soundtrack too.
