Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson’s portrayal of J. K. Rowling’s wizarding trio Harry, Ron and Hermione has impressed film buffs who have voted it the best book to film adaptation of all time.

The poll – run by Samsung Electronics – was set up to coincide with the release of David Fincher’s screen adaptation of Gone Girl starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck.

A third of film buffs voted the Harry Potter series - starring Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith and Warwick Davis - as the best adaptation.

Award winning The Shawshank Redemption starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins followed closely in second, with The Lord of the Rings trilogy taking third place.

Other favourites to make the list were romantic classic Gone With the Wind starring Vivien Leigh and Clarke Gable as Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, as well as Silence of the Lambs and Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Robert Pattinson may have earned himself an army of adoring female fans in vampire fantasy, Twilight but the film adaptation failed to match up to the novel’s success.

Menahem Asher Silva Vargas might need to find the Room of Requirement . The Mexico City man probably could use some extra space these days, as he’s acquired no fewer than 3,097 pieces of Harry Potter memorabilia.
Instead, Vargas will have to settle for a definitively Muggle Guinness World Record. His collection—which includes everything from toy figurines to replica Quidditch brooms—obliterated the previous record holder, an 807-item assortment, like a Reductor Curse from Dumbledore’s wand itself.

Guys like Vargas made the Harry Potter franchise the economic juggernaut it has become. For a more comprehensive look at what makes these type of enterprises explode, pick up How Star Wars Conquered the Universe: The Past, Present and Future of a Multibillion Dollar Franchise, a new book by Chris Taylor out today. Star Wars fans may currently be enjoying a renaissance, but Taylor goes to great lengths to remind readers that the franchise’s success wasn’t always a given. [USA Today ]

Harry is in the forbidden forest, standing in front of Voldemort, about to give up his life. The book states "...and Harry thought inexplicably of Ginny, and her blazing look, and the feel of her lips on his--".

Now, a basic reading of this moment and people would think Harry's last thoughts were of kissing Ginny. Those who ship Harry with someone other than Ginny, will have his last thoughts be of that girl. For example, Harry and Hermione shippers, via the use of screen caps from the movies, will have Harry's last thoughts be of her.

However, what if there was more to this moment than meets the eye? Ginny's full name is Ginevra, which is an anagram for vinegar. Thus we have vinegar touching Harry's lips.

John 19:29-30
New International Version (NIV)

29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
