_i-luv-cheese_: which harry potter movie
_Firekitty_: The Harry Potter movies, Coraline. and Inkheart are some of my favorite book/movie adaptions.

_Firekitty_: @Wolffriend: I read City of Ember but it wasn't in the local theater...
_jopy_: i never saw the movie
_Stacks_Admin_: City of Ember is on DVD now! So maybe you can get your parents to pick up a copy :)
_WolfFriend_: @Firekitty: I don't know if City of Ember was ever in theaters... :P I never saw it anywhere, 'cept when we rented it...
_Stacks_Admin_: For those of you who liked the HP movies - which one was your fave?
_jopy_: that would be cool
_dude4550_: what about twilight?
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: inkheart was kind of different then the book
_Firekitty_: The Secret Garden is another book and movie I like, they did a good job making it into a movie.
_lucca4_: Inkheart was SO much different. I didn't like how Mo didn't have an english accent
_Firekitty_: My favorite HP movie is the third. No Voldemort. ;-)
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: maybe the makers of inkheart did not think they would make inkspell
_jopy_: i really want to read inkheart but i can't find it at the library
_fabchick_: my favortie HP movie is also #3
_WolfFriend_: @Firekitty: Yeah, I saw two different version of the Secret Garden... but I never read the book. :P
_i-luv-cheese_: @Firekitty - if there's no voldemort then there's no bad guy
_i-luv-cheese_: SECRET GARDEN is AWESOME you should it
_i-luv-cheese_: i mean read it
_jopy_: ecre garden i did'nt know they had a moviesSend: i read th
_jopy_: i have read it
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: inkheart is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @ stuffedmudkiptoy: Do you mean the book or the movie is awesome? Or both?
_lucca4_: A Little Princess is also a great adaption, except for the end. I don't want to spoil anything, though.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: I've read all the Ink-Trilogy books and also watched the movie. I enjoyed the movie, but I like the books better.
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: the book, mostly
_Firekitty_: @lucca4: I agree about the end...
_Stacks_Admin_: Welcome, Farid_of_fire
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Ha ha, Farid_of_fire is just in time! We're talking about the Inkheart movie! (Among others.)
_Farid_of_fire_: hi!!! i love th ink-trilogy and movie
_lucca4_: @Firekitty: That's what happens when it's made by Disney, I guess. =]
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: I tried to read alittle princess but could not get in to it
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: but i love the movie
_jopy_: the borrowers is a movie adaption
_WolfFriend_: What book-to-movie adaptation do you guys think is the best? I've got to say the old version of the Call of the Wild -- it was almost exactly like the book.
_Firekitty_: @lucca4: LOL!
_Farid_of_fire_: i like the inkheart one!!! though ALOT was changed!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: About the Inkheart movie: did you guys know that Cornelia Funke wrote the character of Mo with Brendan Fraser in mind?
_Firekitty_: @Wolffriend: I guess The Secret Garden was my favorite, it was very close to the book!
_jopy_: i think the borrowers book is better
_deedee3_: who likes hsm
_lucca4_: My favorute was probably...Lord of the Rings.
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: who was your favorite character in inkheart
_Farid_of_fire_: yah!!!!!!! i love that! she dedicated inkspell to him!!!!!!!
_Firekitty_: @Karen: That's pretty cool, and perfect for a movie too ;-)
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i love hsm
_deedee3_: i love all of the lord of the rings movies
_Farid_of_fire_: @deedee3 im planing to read them but i have to find a copy
_jopy_: @karen_stacks_staffer she is a good author
_fabchick_: i've never seen lord of the rings. i don't like violent movies.
_i-luv-cheese_: Maybe brendan fraser cant do a english accent
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i saw the last lord of the rings movie
_deedee3_: i thonk that sharpy should have expected the girl to take her role
_Farid_of_fire_: @jopy i love her too!
_Farid_of_fire_: who here LOVES harry potter?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: ME ME ME!
_lucca4_: @i-luv-cheese: If he can't do an accent he shouldn't have done a movie with English people.

_Stacks_Admin_: @jopy: Staffers and Admins don't have to wait :)
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: I prefer the HP books too. I also really like the audio books. That's kind of between a book and a movie.
_PugHugs_: @Karen The books are definetly better. No competition whatsoever.
_Stacks_Admin_: @jopy: okay! well if you gotta go, you gotta go. but we'll definitely post the transcript for you to read online later.

_Farid_of_fire_: @FireKitty they are awesome!!!!!!1
_deedee3_: esperanza rising should become a movie

_stuffedmudkiptoy_: @deedee i agree
_deedee3_: how do u become a staffer or admin
_Stacks_Admin_: The staffer and admins are people who work on the STACKS website
_Farid_of_fire_: i just found out the theif lord was a movie!

_Farid_of_fire_: @jopy i actually like the movies more than the books in narnia. i dont know why
_Stacks_Admin_: @deedee3 - you'll have to leave the chat to change your icon.

_Firekitty_: @Farid of fire: I sure hope so!!!
_Farid_of_fire_: it would be awsome!
_Stacks_Admin_: Hm, casting a movie is pretty difficult. How about: Who is your favorite movie or tv star?
_deedee3_: do u think wherei'd like to be should be a movie
_deedee3_: i thought it was cute
_marieisarockstar_: How many people think this is boring?

_Farid_of_fire_: OMG! have any of you read the wizard of oz????? in the movie the shoes are red! in the books they are silver!
_deedee3_: i love miranda cosgrove and miley cyrus
_Firekitty_: I think they should make more of Gail Carson Levine's books into movies. Like they did with Ella Enchanted!
_iluvdavidcook_: @Farid_of_fire: really?? the shoes are silver in the book? didn't know.
_Farid_of_fire_: @stacks_admin i love eliza bennet (meggie) and Rafi GAvron (Farid!)
_Firekitty_: Farid of fire: I like the book more! Have you read any of the Oz sequels?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @ Firekitty: Did you like the Ella Enchanted movie? I was disappointed that it was so different from the book. But I do like Hugh Dancy! :-)
_PugHugs_: @farid of fire: Yeah, I thought that was really interesting- they did that to show off the color element more.
_Farid_of_fire_: @ilovedavidcook yup!!!! and she doesn't say theres no place like home!!!!!!!!!!
_PugHugs_: @Firekitty: With a different director and writer and everything... because Ella Enchanted failed so, so much.
_i-luv-cheese_: Hugh Dancy is also in Confessions of a shopaholic which was a book too
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Except Confessions of a Shopaholic is an adult book. (But I haven't read it.)
_Farid_of_fire_: @ firekitty no i haven't but i want to someday!
_iluvdavidcook_: @PugHugs: what do you mean it "failed"? like at the box office?
_Firekitty_: @Karen: The changes from the book to movie were confusing, but it was still pretty awesome!!
_deedee3_: i like the movie especially the part when she starts singing in the park
_Firekitty_: @Pughugs: Gotta agree. =P
_PugHugs_: Has anyone here read Howl's Moving Castle and seen the movie? *hopeful*
_Farid_of_fire_: @pughugs never heard of it
_fabchick_: @pughugs: I didn't know that was a book first!
_fabchick_: Is it any good?
_star2b_: hi and no
_marieisarockstar_: What are we supposed to be doing here?
_Firekitty_: Pughugs: I think I've seen the movie...
_marieisarockstar_: @PugHugs: I HAVE
_i-luv-cheese_: @PugHugs no i haven't
_deedee3_: i have not read or sen the book or movie
_star2b_: what movie?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @ star2b: We're talking about Howl's Moving Castle.
_PugHugs_: @marieisarockstar: YAY! What did you think of it?
_Stacks_Admin_: @marieisarockstar: this is a live moderated chat-- we've invited kids on the STACKS to talk about books and movies
_PugHugs_: @Firekitty: Not really (though it probably did :P). I just use that word to say I don't like things. :P
_iluvdavidcook_: Has anyone seen either of the Narnia movies? <3
_marieisarockstar_: How many people have read Bridge To Terabithia?
_star2b_: oh what`s it about?
_Farid_of_fire_: um this is random, but um have any of you read gossamer by lois lowry? that would make a good movie
_marieisarockstar_: @PugHugs: It wuz awesome!!!
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: the golden compass was good-ish but i mostly loved it
_deedee3_: i have
_PugHugs_: @marieisarockstar: The mood is really different, and the Witch of the Waste plays a totally different part... though I do like both. ^^
_marieisarockstar_: @iluvdaviscook: i have they r awesome
_Firekitty_: I can't wait till they make the Percy Jackson and the Olympians movie. Anyone read it?
_deedee3_: i love that movie
_Stacks_Admin_: We did a chat with Dakota Blue Richards from The Golden Compass a while back
_Farid_of_fire_: @mariesarckstar i have!!!!!! i love it but i read it like 2 years ago
_PugHugs_: @Farid of fire: Ooh, I loved that book! So would it be animated?
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: PugHugs makes me think of something: Do you guys prefer animated or live-action movies?
_PugHugs_: @Farid of fire: it would be interesting if they did it like they did Coraline. Hmm...
_Farid_of_fire_: @pughugs no i think it would be a nice emotional human movie
_star2b_: oh was the movie good
_iluvdavidcook_: @marieisarockstar: which one did you like better, The Chronicles of Narnia or Prince Caspian? i loved them both a loooot, but I hate how they had Caspian and Susan kiss. :S
_deedee3_: admin or staffers do u work from home
_deedee3_: i like both
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: wich to read first...?
_marieisarockstar_: I LUV LIVE ACTION
_Firekitty_: @Karen: I certainly do enjoy animated Disney movies... :D
_Stacks_Admin_: Admins and Staffers work in the office and sometimes from home, if we need to :)
_Farid_of_fire_: @karen i like live acton like isaid above
_PugHugs_: I like both, it depends on the plot and all.
_i-luv-cheese_: I liked Coraline, it was stopmotion and 3d
_marieisarockstar_: @iluvdavidcook: prince caspian bcuz caspian is cute!
_fabchick_: @Karen: depends on the movie
_iluvdavidcook_: @Karen_Stacks_Staffer: hehe, both!! I absolutely adored Coraline. Spectacular animation. But then live-action movies are super awesome too, like THeCurious Case of benjamin Button! ;)
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i think the chronicals of Narnia was better
_i-luv-cheese_: acutally i don't like 3d that much
_Farid_of_fire_: do moderators work from an office?
_deedee3_: do any of u love horse movies
_star2b_: i`m with dd3
_PugHugs_: @Farid of fire: I imagined the creatures very different.. that would be interesting to see how they did the makeup and costumes, if it was live-action
_Stacks_Admin_: @Farid_of_fire: mods are the same, some of them work in the office and some work from home.
_marieisarockstar_: 3d is gr8
_Farid_of_fire_: @marisarockstar prince caspian was cute! i know!!!!!!!!!!!! haha
_iluvdavidcook_: @stuffedmudkiptoy: i really liked that one, too. i can never decide between them.
_i-luv-cheese_: 3d gives me a headache
_deedee3_: i like 3d
_Farid_of_fire_: haha i know!
_fabchick_: i want to see the monsters vs aliens 3d!
_star2b_: do u think twlight the movie was better than the book
_marieisarockstar_: @FaridOfFire: I know!!! His real name is Ben Barnes & I love him!
_PugHugs_: @i-luv-cheese: any reason why?
_iluvdavidcook_: The third Narnia movie is coming out in December 2010!!!!! Soooooooooooo excited!!!! "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader"!!!! :P
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i wish i could read twillight but you have to be 12 and i am only 10
_Farid_of_fire_: @star2b i have never read or een them....but maybe someday....
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: Well, I haven't read Twilight either. And I am much older than you guys. (Don't ask me how much older! Ha ha.)
_Firekitty_: @star2b: Twilight = better as a book.
_marieisarockstar_: @star2b: i think the book wuz better
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i love reading!!!!!!!
_PugHugs_: @star2b: I haven't actually seen the movie, but it seems like it was mostly for the fans, and wouldn't stand well on it's own. :/
_marieisarockstar_: @star2b: ive read all the books & i think the books were better
_i-luv-cheese_: oh it's because i have to wear glasses under my 3d glasses its just too much
_Farid_of_fire_: @mariesarockstar i know i ove him! hes great for caspian too!
_deedee3_: i think it would be creepy i wanted to see twilight but i am to young
_EowynCatfanRavengirl85_: @iluvdavidcook I know! I can not wait for Voyage of the Dawn treader I love the book
_Stacks_Admin_: Twilight is definitely for teens and up, and has some scary elements,
_marieisarockstar_: @deedee3: its PG13
_Farid_of_fire_: oh are they making a 3rd narnia movie?
_PugHugs_: @i-luv-cheese: OH. I thought it was something with the movie itself. :P
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: For those of you talking about Prince Caspian: I know you guys think the actor is cute. Did he look the way that you expected the character to look when you read the book?
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: should i read the 39 clues?
_marieisarockstar_: Twilight is PG13
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i hope they make a the boy and his horse movie
_iluvdavidcook_: @Karen: Kind of. I didn't expect him to have a Spanish accent, or Mediterranean, whatever it is. But it works.
_deedee3_: i am going to buy that book if i have enough money
_Farid_of_fire_: @karen yah pretty much! he is also a good actor too!!!! hes good for aspian and he plays him well
_i-luv-cheese_: Yes, they are making Voyage of Dawn Treader and it's coming out in 2010.
_marieisarockstar_: YES BCUZ SUSAN THOUGHT HE WUZ CUTE & WEN I SAW HIM I WUZ LIKE 'HE IS CUTE!!!!!!!!!!'
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @marieisarockstar: LOL!
_PugHugs_: Ooh, is anyone here a Percy Jackson fan? What did you think of the casting?
_iluvdavidcook_: @stuffedmudkiptoy: It's actually "The Horse and His Boy". ;)

_stuffedmudkiptoy_: yes i have
_PugHugs_: @deedee3: Percy Jackson and the Olympians is a series... I just don't like typing out the whole series name. :P
_Stacks_Admin_: Logan Lerman, who was also in the HOOT, was cast in Percy Jackson
_iluvdavidcook_: @Emmafan911: hey jess! :)
_Farid_of_fire_: speaking about caspian being cute.....who here thinks in inkheart Farid is cute!!!!! i think so even more than prince caspain!!!!!!!!!!! i adore FArid's actor
_PugHugs_: Hiiiii Jess!
_iluvdavidcook_: @Stacks_Admin: for which character?
_Firekitty_: @Stacks Admin: Awesome! Didn't know that.
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i love hoot and the book was just like the movie
_Stacks_Admin_: @iluvdavidcook: as Percy Jackson!
_PugHugs_: Percy looks exactly as I expected him to... Grover was a bit surprising, but he sounds good. ^^
_Emmafan911_: My fave movie/book adaption is the first Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants - I still cry so much!! Oh, and hey Jubilee and Pughugs! :)
_EowynCatfanRavengirl85_: @stuffedmudkiptoy Whoops that was supposed to be have you read it

_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i love holes
_iluvdavidcook_: @Emmafan911: I loved that movie!!!
_Farid_of_fire_: yah when are they?
_Stacks_Admin_: @deedee3: we're really busy working on the website! but, if the chats are popular, we'll try to have them more often.
_Emmafan911_: The First HP movie is pretty kewl too. That's one of my faves of the HP. Oh and PoA because it's so emotional and I don't know how to explain it but it's done really well. Oh yeah, hey Firekitty! :)
_deedee3_: i like holes also
_PugHugs_: Oh! The Hunger Games would be interesting to see as a movie... though a bit too violent for my tastes.
_Farid_of_fire_: i am so mad they changed so much in inkheart
_deedee3_: i s this a just forming website
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i am about to read the never ending story
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @stuffedmudkiptoy: There's a great movie based on that book! Have you seen it?
_Emmafan911_: I luv Holes! I ahven't seen the movie though...
_Stacks_Admin_: Yes, we are in Beta. And we try to update the site as often as possible with cool/new stuff.
_Farid_of_fire_: have you noticed harry potter movies are usualy almost exactly like th books?
_fabchick_: i love the holes movie too
_PugHugs_: @Farid of fire: it was okay... until the end. I saw it with a friend who's an Inkheart fan, and at the end she was just gesturing indignantly as the screen. xD
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i still like the movie inkheart
_Firekitty_: @stuffedmudkiptoy: I LOVe the neverending story!
_deedee3_: do u ake suggestions from the users
_iluvdavidcook_: @PugHugs: LOL! :D
_Stacks_Admin_: Yes, just post your suggestions on the STACK BACK message boards
_Emmafan911_: they change a move out alot in other movie. I didn't like the fifth Harry potter so much. Maybe if they stuck a little more to some things I would of enjoyed it a bitmroe - a bit more humour would of been great for it!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: I'm so glad that the seventh HP book is going to be split into two movies. I hope they can fit more of the book in that way.
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: the movie is the resion i read inkheart
_Emmafan911_: I used to watch the Never Ending story on Teevee! I luved it! :)
_PugHugs_: Has anyone seen the Thief Lord movie? Apparently there is one, but I haven't gotten around to seeing it yet. I loved the book, though, so if they ruined it...
_Farid_of_fire_: @karen! WHAT? IT IS!! REALLY!!!!!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Farid_of_fire: Yup! Unfortunately, they won't be out in theaters for a while...
_Farid_of_fire_: @PUGHUGS Not yet i just read the book
_EowynCatfanRavengirl85_: @farid of fire Really? I thought they changed too much in them.
_i-luv-cheese_: MORE HP MOVIES they should just keep making them
_Stacks_Admin_: @stuffedmudkiptoy: did you end up liking the movie or book for Inkheart more?
_Firekitty_: OH! I just remembered one of my absolute favorite book to movies: Because of Winn-Dixie. :)
_PugHugs_: @Emmafan911: Someone with HBP mentioned that they were 'having a laugh' with HBP... which I have mixed feelings about, considering the book's pretty dark.
_Emmafan911_: I'm gonna start reading...ah...what's it called? I forgot...the title's got something to do with a lone person...
_Farid_of_fire_: @karen I DIDN'T KNOW THAT!!!!!!! OMG!!!!
_PugHugs_: What do you HP fans think of the PG rating for Half-Blood Prince?
_iluvdavidcook_: @Firekitty: Awe, I loved that movie. :)
_iluvdavidcook_: Has anyone seen the movie Freedom Writers?? So amazing. Based on a true story, and sort of based on a book.
_Farid_of_fire_: @STACKS ADMIN i lik the books waaaaaaaaayy more
_Farid_of_fire_: @pughugs? is it really pg? wow
_EowynCatfanRavengirl85_: @pughugs no but Im getting it from borders books next week.
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i like the book better
_Stacks_Admin_: if the HP movie is in PG, more kids can watch it!
_Firekitty_: @Pughugs: My friend is obsessed with Scipio in the movie!
_jack jack_: hey
_Farid_of_fire_: i cnt wit until inkdeath is a movie!!! it won't be for a while though
_jack jack_: 1 live chat
_deedee3_: who do u think should play esperanza if it turns into a movie
_Farid_of_fire_: @firekitty i really think scipio should have stayed akid,,,,
_iluvdavidcook_: @Stacks_Admin: I guess, but it might mean that they took out some of the darker stuff, which could "ruin" it. :S
_Firekitty_: @deedee3: I don't know, but I think it really should be a movie.
_Farid_of_fire_: @stacks admin i geuss but that book is really intense an scary
_Emmafan911_: @Pughugs: I'm not sure, I think that it should be a little darker than that but as the admin said, mroe kids can watch it so...that basically means I don't know. :P
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: @jack jack do you dance?
_PugHugs_: @Stacks Admin: It's still a little disappointing... I mean, there's a death at the end (carefully keeping this spoiler-free...) and the Inferi... how is that not going to be PG-13-ish?
_deedee3_: who do u think should play esperanza if theyu have a movie
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i do
_Farid_of_fire_: @jack jack i dance and skate (my icon!)
_summertide_: inkdeath was amazing can't wait for that to be made into a movie, can't wait to see the inkheart movie too. I haven't seen it yet.
_Firekitty_: @Pughugs: Hmmm... I hope they don't take out all the scary stuff!
_jack jack_: @stuffedmud what do you mean?
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: some movie ratings i don't agree with
_iluvdavidcook_: Hello? Anyone seen Freedom Writers? ;)
_Farid_of_fire_: @pughugs this is weird it shold be pg13
_jack jack_: no
_jack jack_: my mom did
_PugHugs_: I'm a little worried that parents will take their little kids to HBP and then the kids'll have nightmares. :P
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i mean your icon
_Firekitty_: iluvdavidcook: No, what's it about?
_i-luv-cheese_: @iluvdavidcook: i haven't seen freedom writers
_iluvdavidcook_: @stuffedmudkiptoy: Same here.
_deedee3_: jackjack r u a girl
_jack jack_: american girl was a good movie and a book
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @ jack jack: I've never read the books, but I saw the movie. I thought it was cute!
_jack jack_: yes
_Stacks_Admin_: @jack jack: which american girl movie
_jack jack_: the one about molly
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @ jack jack: Oh, I thought you were talking about Kit Kittredge. I've never seen the one about Molly.
_jack jack_: i am a girl
_BookWriter101_: I like the lord of the rings movies
_deedee3_: @ staffer do u have to agree to let us say something
_PugHugs_: Has anyone seen The Princess Bride and/or read the book?
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: the princess bride seems close to the (book)?
_Firekitty_: @jackjack: I agree, even though they changed a lot of things about the book.
_Farid_of_fire_: @pughugs i think they'll know it's harry potter and Know not to
_ArwenLeopardRaven75_: @jackjack molly was a cute movie
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i like american girls but i have never seen the book
_Farid_of_fire_: @jackjack i saw that but i dont love it it was ok
_Stacks_Admin_: @deedee3: yes, we make sure everything is safe and is spoiler-free.
_PugHugs_: @jack jack: I think they struck a perfect balance with Molly... Felicity went on too long and Samantha was too short.
_Firekitty_: @jackjack: I like the one about Chrissa and the one about Samantha best!
_BookWriter101_: what do you think the best movie to book transition was?
_jack jack_: i havent seen the one about kit
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: @jack jack do you have a molly doll
_Farid_of_fire_: woah this thing is almost over alredy!!!!!!
_iluvdavidcook_: @Firekitty: It's basically about this teacher who's class is all kids who are in gangs. She helps them to put aside thier differences and stuff, and they write in this diaries,and they make a book and stuff. My explanation maeks it sounds like a really boring movie, but it's SO GOOD. Powerful.
_ArwenLeopardRaven75_: @bookwriter101 I love the Lord of the Rings.
_summertide_: i've read te book and loved it
_Firekitty_: Pughugs: Inconceivable!!! (yes, the movie!)
_iluvdavidcook_: @BookWiter101: ME TOO!!!!!!!! Which one's your favourite?
_ArwenLeopardRaven75_: @POughugs yes Ive read and watched the Princess Bride
_deedee3_: i want to see the one about kit
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: i don't like it when people use stairio types
_PugHugs_: @stuffedmudkiptoy: Yeah, the same person who wrote the book did the screenplay... which I think greatly contributed to the closeness of the book/movie.
_jack jack_: noi have a emily
_BookWriter101_: @pughugs who is the princess bride by?
_stuffedmudkiptoy_: whoops i meen in moves
_Farid_of_fire_: well its been fun but i gotta go! see you guys next time!
_iluvdavidcook_: @PugHugs: I agree. But the Felicity movie was my favourite. :) Or maybe the Kit movie. I liked that one a lot. They changed so much stuff, but I didn't mind.

_ArwenLeopardRaven75_: @Bookwriter101 Do you mean the Two Towers?
_iluvdavidcook_: @BookWriter101: The elf is Legolas and the dwarf is Gimli. I think Frodo or Merry was my favourite. But I really loved them all. :)
