So can anyone write a witch based fantasy with out being acused of feeding off of J.K. Rowling's left overs? Did this one series kill the chance of another series? Not that I don't like the Harry Potter books and movies, I do. That is the problem. She has set such a high standard with the books, I just don't know if another author could to the same. Or if people would give them a chance.

I know that's a lot of book to pack in a two-and-a-half hour movie, but they seem to focus on the wrong things. Then, as you note, they added the attack at the Weasley's which was not in the book, destroying their house, for what purpose I do not know.
Missing completely were the Dursleys, Percy Weasley, Bill & Fluer (as you mention), and the Order of the Phoenix. Harry's inheritance of 13 Grimmauld Place (part of Dumbledore's visit to the Dursley's, of course), etc. All important, in my opinion, to the ongoing story. I get the impression that the directors are intentionally moving the story in a different direction than the books. To what end, I cannot understand.
As a visual reinforcement to parts of the book, it does a good job. As far as following the story line, however, I think it falls too far from the mark.
