Richard Harris rules

The kids have been on this weird Harry Potter craze lately, we have all of them (so far) on DVD and have been watching them constantly. This is the kind of movie overload trend I can get into, because I love Harry Potter. (We don't need to have a debate about the books vs. the movies, I think that's rather obvious). But we've been watching them all again and again (except we can't find Order of the Phoenix, which is a bummer, because that's my favorite) so I've had AMPLE opportunity to compare Richard Harris' Dumbledore to Michael Gambon's Dumbledore and GODDAMMIT he was SO FUCKING GOOD. Gambon is a caricature in comparison to Harris' awesomeness. What a loss.

I completely agree. I can't watch the movies without wondering how much more awesome they would have been with Richard Harris.

I'm with ya. I was so sad when he died. Physically, Michael Gambon was probably one of the closest fits they could find, but he just doesn't pull off the character the same way. He always seems to be in a pissy mood.
