    Default Correction

    Hi,
    I made some sentences, but I'm not sure whether they're correct or not.

    -"When you've watched the Harry Potter movies, did you ever say "if only i would make it that, too?"

    -"Have you ever benefit from fans' opinions before your new book is released?"

    Thanks but there is still something I don't understand. Maybe I was misunderstood. I wanted to say something like that in first sentence:

    You watched the HP movies.
    And HP movies have different scenes from the HP books.
    And you liked that scenes. And you said "If only i could make it too".


    Now, Is the first sentence's mean same with the above paragraph

    Now it is me that is not understanding!

    It is not clear what you are trying to say here.

    Are you trying to say that you wish the scenes in the films had been included in the books?

    Yes but different scenes. So first sentence is wrong. What is the correct form?
