The HP movies were fine but it was frustrating to me to wonder where all the subplots went.
ITA, that the LOTR extended edition movies were excellent.
It has been announced that the final HP book will actually be two movies. There was a Pride and Prejudice mini-series on PBS Masterpiece that was 6 hours. It was excellent at following the book. There is a DVD I believe.
