All the characters are better in the movie because they take the stunning characters from the book, and make them even better. My favorites are Dumbledore, Dobby, and Lockhart. I love them so much!
The book has more details on daily life at Hogwarts, which I love. It helps me imagine myself as another student. I think this book has more information about classes and stuff than any other (except for maybe #3). The movie skips over most of this to get to the stuff that's important to the plot.
I feel the movie tells the story very well. It cuts out some of the things that aren't as necessary (although I LOVE it even more with the deleted scenes) to make it as captivating as possible.
Every second of the book and movie are enjoyable, and this was a hard decision.
The Final Verdict:
