Is it me or does Draco Malfoy in the HP films look like a young Eminem?

See this page to see what I mean...

Indeed. I guess he's needed, but the hair, it reminds me of the mean little tyrant boys in elementary school..

Re: eminem jr?
well .. I guess they are being faithful (ish) to the books.

I'm not a fan of the films though, they lack allthe depth of the books :( also they lack the darkness.

never!!!
yeah, you can never capture the essence of the book and convert it into a movie.
if it's one of those movie-based-on-a-book type movies, people will always say the book was better.

imagination is key.

well I don't know.. you can capture the feel of a book - I think LotR does that quite well.

Granted you can't do all of the subtlty - as a lot of that is in the phrasing a descriptions, but the feel of the HP books is what is missing and I know they could have got that.

It just comes across like as if Disney did a version of, say, Carrie. Sure if would have the same basic elements - but really it would suck.

I'm hoping that Chris Columbus will bow out soon. He's not really made a very good film since Young Guns.

surfing journals. came across this. the next film (currently being shot) isn't being directed by Columbus at all. its ... ? Curazon ? or something like that. i'm sure IMDb has all that info.

Re: never!!!
yeah.. that was pathetic wasn't it?

Mind you I still hold that AI was good - if slow. He's still got it.

I loved Minority Report for example, if he gould get the darkness from that into Harry Potter we'd be made.

Re: never!!!
i agree. AI was pretty good. i still think this new guy might just do pretty well. turns out his name is Alfonso Cuaron and he won some acclaim over here last year for a Mexican film called Y tu Mama Tambien. but what perked my interest was that he directed "a little princess" a few years ago which was surprisingly harry-like. orphaned kid/opressive mundane surroundings/infusion of magic, etc. and he did a really good job with that.
