That would be like throwing someone who can't swim into the ocean. What does she know about framing, pacing, directing actors etc? Directing is a skill like any other.I'd honestly like to see J.K Rowling attempt to direct. That way we know that we'd be seeing the movie the way that she wanted it to be seen.
It's not written by her, is it? This is at best only approved fan fiction. It could be a good play, but there is no way I'm considering this a part of the Harry Potter canon as created by Rowling.I imagine so, since Jo is involved.
Personally, I would never claim a book to be better than a film because of the difference in medium. That would be like saying that apples are better than oranges. For me a more precise wording would be that "I prefer apples over oranges". Personally I think the HBP book was miles better as a book than HBP was as a movie. In other words I prefer the book over the film, which goes to show that even I have preferences, but on a rather reflected level if I may say so myself since I don't really compare them, but judge them on their own merits.I don't think they're that bad, but they bring the Book > Movie to a new level, for sure. I do think the books are better ( :P ), but the films are amazing as well.
