The Ultimate Harry Potter tag

With ITV playing all the Harry Potter movies recently it’s definitely rekindled my love of the franchise, and all things magical. So much so that I hunted down a Harry Potter tag to answer. 😅

The one I found was The Ultimate Harry Potter tag on fellwo Ravenclaw Michelle’s blog A Geek Girls Guide (you can read her answers here). The questions are varied which is great and I discovered a new blog to binge read as well. So its a win-win. 😊

The Ultimate Harry Potter Tag

GENERAL

Favorite book?

The Prisoner of Azkaban. I felt the books got a little darker after this one, especially with the soul sucking dementors. Also it introduced us to two of my favourite characters: Sirius and Lupin.

Least favorite book?

The Chamber of Secrets. It bored me and I’ve tried re-reading it a few times and still feel the same way. I found the pacing rather slow which could be the main reason.

Favorite movie?
The Prisoner of Azkaban! I love the storyline and felt the pacing was good. I was worried, as it’s my favourite book in the series, that the movie wouldn’t do it justice but was pleasantly surprised. It has some beautiful imagery, especially in the scenes by the whomping willow and the shrieking shack.

Also the Knight Bus scene is one of my all time favourites!

Boarding the Knight Bus ~2012
Least favorite movie?

Goblet of Fire. The pacing was off in this movie, it didn’t flow as well, and my parents (who hadn’t read the books) were somewhat confused after watching it.

Favorite quote?

Dumbledore: “Happiness can be found even in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light”.

Favorite Weasley?

Definitely Fred and George.

Favorite female character?

Tonks or Luna.

Favorite villain?

Voldemort, mostly because of how interesting his backstory is.

Favorite male character?

Sirius.

Favorite professor?

Professor McGonagall! Or Hagrid… Can I say Hagrid?

WOULD YOU RATHER?

A. Wash Snape’s hair, or B. Spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself.

If I can use magic, wash Snape’s hair.

Duel A. An elated Bellatrix, or B. An angry Molly

Molly, because I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t actually kill me. I have no intention in harming her family.

Travel to Hogwarts via A. Hogwarts Express or B. Flying car

Hogwarts Express. 🚂💗

A. Kiss Voldemort or B. Give Umbridge a bubble bath

Use magic and give Umbridge a bubble bath.

A. Ride a Hippogriff or B. Ride a Firebolt

Firebolt.

BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION

Is there a character which you felt differently about in the movies VS books?

Snape, I liked him a lot more in the movies and I think that’s largely down to Alan Rickman.

Is there a movie you preferred instead of the book?

The Chamber of Secrets

Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore?

Both.

Your top thing (person or event) which wasn’t included in the movie that annoyed you most?
  • St. Mungo’s Hospital scene.
  • Changing the location of Snape’s death in the movies.
If you could remake any of the Potter movies, which would it be?

Goblet of Fire, with a different script.

HOGWARTS

Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be a part of?

Gryffindor.

Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottermore (or another sorting quiz)?

Ravenclaw

Which class would be your favourite?

DADA with Professor Lupin.

Which spell do you think would be most useful to learn?

Accio [insert anything here], Lumos and Alohamora.

Which character do you think at Hogwarts you’d instantly become best friends with?

Luna.

MISCELLANEOUS

If you could own one of the three Hallows, which would it be?

The Invisibility Cloak.

Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change? This can be a character, and event, anything.

I’m not a fan of Cho Chang. There was little the character added to the storyline other than a love interest for Harry, and then Cedric.

Favorite Marauder?

Lupin or Sirius.

If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be?

As above, Lupin or Sirius. But if I brought back Lupin, I’d have to bring back Tonks too.

Hallows or horcruxes?

Hallows.


I hope you enjoyed my nostalgia trip and if you would like to do the Ultimate Harry Potter tag, please do. I’d love to read your answers. 😊

  1. My favorite quote was… “Yes,” said Harry stiffly. “Yes, sir.” [Snape] “There’s no need to call me ‘sir,’ Professor.” Haha! Unlike a lot of people, I’m a proud Slytherin! Also I recently watched a video on book-movie adaptational attractiveness and how Emma Watson/ Hermione’s conventional attractiveness in the movie kind of took away from her character development.

    • Lol, that’s such a great quote! My sister and one of my closest friends are Slytherin house. That’s an interesting theory on Emma Waston’s Hermione, I did miss the more book-ish nerdy Hermione.

  2. I have watched a couple of the movies the first 2 or 3 and did enjoy them, but never read the books. I would like to watch all of the films. I like that there is a tag for it though, as I know how popular it is! Thank you for sharing! ❤️Xx

    • I don’t want to sound cliche but the books are better than the movies! Don’t all readers say that? There’s a lot of background left out of the movies and Emma Watson’s Hermione is a different take to the book version. Thanks for your comment Lauren. x
