Some of the movies don't suck. The first two were good and followed the books but the rest are just alright. The Diagon Alley we see in the Columbus movies is the real Diagon Alley, not the one we see in the Yates films. And the biggest peeve for me with the movies was when Harry broke the Elder Wand instead of using it fix his old wand like in the book. But the movies, for the most part in my opinion, measure up to the books reasonably well. BUT THE BOOKS ARE BETTER!!!
Hmmm.... I get what you mean. I really like the first and second movie, but... I think that, if you didn't like the movies, you should read the books. It's impossible to dislike the books! They are my favourite series ever.
