One of the people who sent in questions is Megan Gaiser, the CEO of Her Interactive. I'm a little scared to read her email.
Anyway, the comments on my blog recently have been interesting, so I thought I'd respond to some of them.
- Yes, the new Harry Potter movie is British. My mom and sister were excited to see the guy from Love Actually play Rufus Scrimgeour. They like that movie, but they hate Uncle Jamie.
- The cool part about fairy tales is that there are lots of different versions. A 1940's researcher discovered over 100 distinct versions of Cinderella that exist in the United States. So technically, I guess there is no "official" version of the story.
- I understand the "they had to split the last Harry Potter book into two movies, because it's very long" argument. The problem is that's what I said about the fourth Harry Potter book, and they made that into only one movie. Same with the fifth book, which is longer than the seventh.
- I can be fine with a movie if it doesn't follow the book. The Wizard of Oz is probably the best example of a movie that's good, even though it barely follows the book.
