Thread Name: BS: Harry Potter: Book 6 (Half-Blood Prince)
Subject: RE: BS: Harry Potter:
Anyway - the books are aimed at the age of Harry. So - I turned seventeen this year, which means theoretically I'm the perfect age to read the one that's just come out.
I know that younger kids read them - well thats fair enough and great that they want to - but the books aren't aimed at them so it should just be accepted that some of them will be too young for the books! (and of course - others won't have a problem).
What I don't really see is how they are going to do the films of the later books without them being really lame - Harry gets pretty aggressive at times which is fine in the book but it won't work on a film unless they make it rating 12 or something - which kids won't like. I know lots of people probably don't think thats important - but... I think something like a sixteen year old who wont say 'crap' would just be.. well - lame! (I don't like the actor that plays Harry either.. but that's a seperate subject)
