Yep. It's implied that she does - but she doesn't say it, and if I remember correctly it doesn't even say Green flash does it?

No,but it said that "both witches fought to kill". I suppose there are other ways to kill with a wand but why bother with them when you have such a neat curse like the AK?

You should get Quidditch through the ages too.

It's on my To Do List! ;)

I thought it was obvious that the adults at least must have used Unforgivables in the final fight - after all, Molly does kill Bella, and no matter what spell she used, it can't have been some harmless one, judging by its effects! And McGonagall tells Slughorn that she would duel to kill. Lupin even tells Harry explicitly to stop using harmless spells like Expelliarmus right at the beginning of the book. So I'd say that only Harry keeps using "forgivable" spells during the fight - and that was obviously Roiwling's intention. I, for one, like it. It's not a question of fighting fire with fire, but of not sinking to the same depths as your enemy - something which Harry says (not in the same words) to Lupin in response to his advice about Expelliarmus.

At last! I've been trying to get hold of a genuine (new & uncursed)) copy of this book for ages! Today I got one! :D

Cool! Now go get Quidditich through the Ages. :D Both the books are fantastic - I hope Rowling feels like writing another similar one, hopefully "Hogwarts: a History" (probably an abridged edition ;)).

At a recent lecture in the US, John Williams, former composer of the Harry Potter movie soundtrack, was asked if he was hoping to score the last Harry Potter film. He stated that he was sorely missed on the last two films (not to detract from Doyle's or Hooper's excellent work). He said with confidence that he thinks he will be back for the last and then added that he hopes he is.


:jmp: :yah: Come on JW! Give us a score to rival that of Prisoner of Azkaban!! :D

I finally saw OotP yesterday! :D :jmp:

It was pretty damn good. Much better than GoF at any rate.

Stuff I liked:
-The direction was good, so was the acting and I liked the whole atmosphere.
-I loved the attention to the detail. Pretty much most things are in, even as throw-away lines.
-All the DA scenes.
-Aberforth and the goat! Lol!
-I loved the Ministry. The settings were magnificent.:cln:
-Dumbledore's and Voldy's duel! Fantastic!
-Umbridge was fantastic. Spot on! You should have heard people's reaction in my theatre every time she showed up!
-Luna was great as well.
-Ginny. She didn't have a big role but she was there and she was noticeable.
-Curiously,I actually liked the Grawp scenes (unlike in the book)!!!



Some stuff that irked me a bit:
-The beginning felt a bit rushed.
-I was disappointed by the amount of screen time the Order got. Kingsley and Tonks were almost not introduced, Lupin was barely in, Tonks was there just for decoration.
-The same goes for Snape and McGonagal. They're so underused!
- Snape's Worst Memory-I already knew it was butchered but still...It was one of my favourite scenes in the books.
-The Ministry scenes were great in general but the battle between the Order and the Death Eaters was so disappointing!It was too short and it'd have been better to show a few proper duels instead of this silly smoke-apparition thing. And why on earth was Sirius and Bella's duel cut? Not to mention that his death was just wrong.
- I wish they hadn't cut Harry's anger at DD at the end, and they really should have mentioned Neville's part in the Prophecy and most importantly they should have talked about the blood protection. They'll have trouble explaining it in the last one.
-Oh, I believe one Regulus A. Black should have also got a mention. Along with a a better view of the Black family tree and an explanation of the Black sisters, but that's just my obsession with the Black family.
-Percy...Why did they bother putting him in since they never bothered explaining his argument with his family? :confused:
-These parts didn't make much sense to me: Harry flies away with a bunch of unknown wizards, in plain view of Muggles despite the fact that he's facing expulsion because of having used magic in front of one.
-So Neville's the new Dobby? I like that he gets more screen time but if they keep this up in the 7th movie he'll get killed by Bella and probably Nigel will decapitate Nagini.

Nah, from the things that got cut from OotP I was most annoyed at the hospital scene with Neville's parents ( and I forgot to mention it!),the scenes that got cut from the DoM and Snape's Worst Memory. I never cared much about Quidditch. But generally it was much more faithful.

And I quite agree about the McGonagal/Umbridge bits... One of Minerva;s best moments!:D

The fourth one...I didn't even like it as a movie. I can't put my finger on it but I think it felt way too..teensy? I think they focused way too much on the Yulle Ball whole romance aspect.

I agree - how could they cut Snape's Worst memory?! :mad: It didn't even have Lily! And the scene was over so quickly that it's hard to tell what actually happened. :hea:

The fourth movie was terrible. :mad: I think it can be summarized in about three lines:
Harry KILLS A DRAGON, goes to the YULE BALL, swims underwater and wanders around in a hedge maze. (Some other stuff also happens in a campsite and a graveyard, but that’s not important. And, oh yeah, somebody dies.)

They'd better not be planning on cutting out Snape's emotional parts and memories in the next two movies either. He's one of the best characters in the whole story. If they cut him to give Harry more screentime, I'll go Bellatrix-style berserk.

Snape is one of the best characters! So much history! And they really just don't show enough of him in the movies! I was really glad to see the part where James does the levicorpus (is that the spell?) on him in the Order movie. I wish they would have shown more though. It was a lot better in the book!

JK has updated her website, we have Dumbledore's canon dates! :yah:

Albus Dumbledore
1881-1996 (Shouldn't that be 1997?:p :rolleyes:)

Brilliant and often controversial headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Albus Dumbledore is most famous for his 1945 defeat of Grindelwald and his steadfast championing of Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived. Dumbledore's self-proclaimed proudest achievement, however, was featuring on a Famous Wizards Chocolate Frog Card.

I wish it were me, I can't recall having dreamt of flying... but it can't be anything less than fabulous ;) I had a very crazy dream too, it was a bit WWII, I was among the Allies and the Nazis (don't worry, I won't say German - I love the German people ;)) had all these subs in the water (we were at a bank with the ocean stretched out before us) but the crazy thing was: we were in a GIANT cave, like really enormous! it has to be, there was a small ocean before us... and I was preparing some nuclear missiles by igniting them with matches (:D) - don't ask - but then it happened: a GIANT stalakite (that's the name, right? the pointy things in caves that could kill you in TR2 ?) fell from the 'ceiling' and crushed a submarine :eek: and then the scary moment came: I looked in the distance and I could see beneath the water (although it was very dark) and how enormous the stalakite was (perhaps 30 times bigger than the big sub), and I got this utterly terrifying feeling of how much water there was beneath us (we were walking on these wooden sections with the ocean below us) ... sorry about the long explanation, but I absolutely HATE those dreams of a really deep ocean and not exactly being safe.....

BTW, Dani, I love your avatar :D I haven't been around lately (and won't be much again once the weekend is over), so it's the first time I see it :)

Scottlee, I hope you get hold of your copy again, they ain't exactly cheap books.. and of course it's inconvenient when you want to read the rest of it...

sounds strange, Joe_16.. perhaps people who've gone to the movies and seen Order of the Phoenix can't wait till the next release, so they buy the next book instead, and that has been a surprise for some bookshop owners? but I don't know..

You know what slash fiction is, right? It's where the writer pairs up two (or more) characters in relationships that aren't in the books... Snape often gets paired with Harry, Hermione and Lupin. Slash artwork is even more disturbing. o_o

Imagine Harry writing slash fiction involving Snape. I reckon trolls might feature. http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/272/sweatdropwx1.gif

I rewatched Order of the Phoenix today I just realized how INCREDIBLY bad it was. I didnt think it was bad the first time, now that I've watched it again, it's the worst Harry Potter film ever.

Firs t I've got to say is that they have changed the whole storyline and mixed it all up. Scenes were all over the place. It just felt like the writers were trying to write their own book. Scenes that were important were cut, and unessacary scenes are long (the kiss for example). People who havent read the book or series at all will ahve a hard time getting the film. My cousin watched it and he had no idea what he was following.

Second, the acting. It all wentdown hill for many of the characters. Especially Emma Watson who plays Hermione Granger. Her acting toned down A LOT more it was like as if she wasn't even trying to act, or even bothering to talk. She spoke in an annoying monotone which was very different to her portrayal of Hermione in previous films. Yes, Emma overacted in the past films but she really didn't have to tone it down that much this film. Dan was okay, most of the time he was cheesy though, especially in the DA scenes. Just watch it, the way he says his lines just makes you cringe. Helena Bonham Carter and the actress who played Umbridge were the only good ones who acted brilliantly tbh.

Third was the cinematography. I dunno if it's just me or did it feel like it like Hollyoaks or something in terms of cinematography? In the past films it felt like a proper Hollywood movie with the dramatic music, camera angles and decent lighting. In this film, all of the camera angles and lighting, the overall onscreen atmoshpere felt like it was out of Hollyoaks.
The lack of background music was a HUGE letdown, they didn't even play any music through out the Voldy and Dumbledore battle. It was uncomfortable to watch without music.

I blame the director. And i just can't believe people saying this is the best film ever.

I don't like it as much as PoA, but it comes second. And definitely a vast improvement from GoF. I just wish that Steve Kloves wouldn't return for HBP and DH, though.The new script writer, did a much better job, IMO. Ok, there were a lot of things changed and cut (many of which really annoyed me) but at least it was closer to the storyline and there were many little details for the hardcore fans.

Are you having a laugh? No Steve Kloves?

He nailed CoS. It was the only film that stuck to the storyline 98% percent.

And if you're saying the OtP film was closer to the storyline, watch it again. Cos it's about 60% to the storyline. A ****ING LOT of stuff was cut. They didn't even explain the prophecy, and how bloody short was that Dumbledore talk in the end? And Harry PHYSICALLY, ACTUALLY giving the prophecy to Lucius...WTActualF?

I could imagaine JK Rowling secretly wanted to kill the writers at the OtP premiere lol.

That was one of the things that annoyed me the most.
But I'm definitely not kidding at all about Kloves. Ok, CoS sticked to the book but that isn't necessarily making it a good movie but I think he totally messed up PoA and GoF and he writes the cheesiest dialogues.

14-09-07, 23:40
PoA wasn't all that bad apart from the fact that they didn't explain the Marauders and changed Dumbledore to a hippie. GoF was pretty bad but at least, he wrote 2 or 3 excellent screenplays, all very loyal to the books and with PoA missing some details.

But OtP missed out a chunk load of details which are VERY important to DH. For example Sirius' Mirror, Snape's Worst Memory(that scene in the film was just absolutely ****all). They'll have a hard time doing DH explainging the stuff they didnt do in Otp...or they'll cut them out...again.

I'm getting the DVD anyways, I wanna see what's been cut. I'm usually hyped up about potter dvds..but not this time.

Oh god, David Yates is totally gonna mess up HBP...

I completely agree.
The thing that annoyed me the most was that some scenes were shown like fast clipping of the newspapers, short cuts etc that roll really fast for some time, then the movie totally stops to have a slow scene (for example, the kissing) and then all over again.
Some lines are totally copied from the book (in the places where they look weird cause they don't really fit with other ones) and some parts are completely different (in a bad way) - for example the scene where Harry lies after the fight in the ministry, is "possesed" by Voldemort and says something like "I'm stronger because you don't know how to love". That scene just seemed like an exorcist copy with bad lines. We're not three year olds, we can figure out the message ourselves.

My personal favourite movie is Goblet, and I think Prisoner was the best directed one. Cuaron made it imo darker than the book, and I'd love to see what he could do with Hallows movie.

:)

I wouldn't say I'm annoyed, but imo they gave Bella too much time in the beginning (she was talked about a lot, the newspapers, than in the ministry as well), but at the end they haven't shown the best part she had in the books - that fight in the atrium.

Exactly, they've made SO many of Dan's lines to be incredibly cheesy, the ones that make you cringe. For example, the way he was complimenting everyone in the DA scenes were horribly done, the way he said: "FANTASTIC GINNY!" made me want to hide behind a pillow.

And yea, the newpaper segments int he film are a lazy way of retelling the scenes. And I don't like how they Apperate in smoke. I was expecting an exploding BANG.

I hope Cauron comes back for DH aswell, he's the best in creativity and he really knows how the actors think. One thing I didn't like about him though is that he changed Dumbledore's look. And if Steve Kloves included the backstory of the Marauders, it wouldve beent he best potter movie.

Yup. I love Gambon's Dumbledore's personality and Harris' Dumbledore's looks.


I'm quite excited about the last two movies, but I can't help but to believe Hallows will turn out as Order - there is a lot of story to tell, and it could be quite challenging for the screenwriters. :)

I just love Luna Lovegood in the movie OOTP. She portrays Luna perfectly I must say. The mystifying look and drift away in dream land face expression, simply done superbly!:D I love Hermione but in this movie, she's just too uptight and don't enjoy much, not fun :/

And poor Ron have little or less lines as always. Ginny barely said a word! What's up with those scriptwriters?? Ginny was funny in the book, give her a liner or two at least??

I was totally disappointed with the epilogue, too. Not so much for the unquestionable cheesiness of it (I mean, ok, after all those stuff he went through, poor Harry deserved a bit of cheese) but mostly for the lack of information. And I wish she had written the Battle's immediate aftermath!
Anyway, now that we got some info from the interviews, it doesn't bother me as much.

As for Albus Severus...Harry naming a kid after Snape? Snape?
I think it was just a plot device to sow us that Harry forgave Snape and made sure he got some credit...But it just doesn't work. And it sounds bad, too.
And did I get the impression that he's meant to be our favourite from Harry's kids? :rolleyes: I like James 2.0 better. He's a little brat, just like his grandad, but at least he's not whiny!

Hey, Guys. I'm new to this thread. I love the Harry Potter books!!
My fave book is the Goblet of Fire, closely followed by the shamefully underrated
Deathly Hallows.
My fave movie in the series is also Goblet, but I still really miss Richard
Harris. My top 3 Chracters are:
Frenrir Greyback
Rubeus Hagrid
Hermione

I just love the whole wizardverse Jo Rowling has created. From Accromantulas to
Xenophilius Lovegood; from the Floo Network to Quidditch; from Hogwarts to Nuremgard,
I love everything to do with harry Pottr.

Harry saw Grindelwald in a photo printed in a magazine (or Skeeter's biography, I forget) with Dumbledore when they were young, with a caption under it explaining who it was. Then he saw Grindelwald about the same age in a vision, stealing the Elder wand, and in a photo in Bathilda's house, and he recognised him but couldn't remember his name.

The artist's comment really says it all: I think Deathly Hallows really showed off what an intellectual our boy Harry is, don't you?I didn't understand how the reasoning was that he'd found a room that he thought nobody else knew about. Didn't the piles of junk tip him off?
Well, that's actually Harry's reasoning, not Voldy's:
"And he never realized anyone could get in?" said Ron.
"He thought he was the only one," said Harry. "Too bad for him I’ve had to hide stuff in my time ..."But since JKR didn't give us any explanation regarding what Voldy's reasoning was, I guess it was supposed to be the same. If so, JKR is pretty "intellectual" herself. :rolleyes:

Wouldn't it have made sense for Voldy to put some sort of curse on the diadem, at least? After all, the ring was cursed, the diary was a weapon in itself, and even the locket tried to protect itself - why were the cup and the diadem not cursed in any way? :confused:

Hey, Joe 16. Half-Blood Prince is my 2nd favourite HP book, next to Goblet of Fire ;)

I agree, the shocking climax is very hard to take in. Eeryting happens very fast, when Harry & Dumbledore return from the CAve- the Dark Mark above the tower, the encounter with Malfoy, the battle in the school, and the.... well, you get the point!

My fave part of that chapter, " Fllight of the Prince," is Bills fight with Greyback.

HBP is my favourite of all, I love so many things about it!

Mainly because the plot is really Voldemort-centric, and it starts Harry's quest for the Horcrux, and he himself starts to learn some darker magic. (Even though that adds to the anticlimax of Harry's excessive use of Expelliarmus in DH!) Then there's the whole journey with Dumbledore and the final few chapters while had me in tears bigtime when I first read it.

Youre missing the point- IMO, if Harry is a true Hero, he musn't actually stoop to the level of his nemesis. Thus, he has to use a spell that proves that he is pure of heart to finish of Voldemort, not a "dark" spell.

Its a bit like Luke in the Return of the Jedi- he cannot use his litesabre and succumb to the power of the Darkside to kill Vader, or he would not win at all. :)

But he was more Dumbledor-ish. And he had better hair and beard.

Gambon on the other hand...I liked him in PoA. Then he shows up in GoF and he's like a cheap imitation of Gandalf. He toned it down in OotP but I still thought he needed a chill-pill.

I suppose it's possible they reckoned Dumbledore's calm personality just wouldn't translate to film very well. Things need to be spelled out for audiences to understand, and that's easy to do when you're spelling things out literally in books, but difficult when you need to illustrate it without words, as plenty of movie-goers are too insensitive to pick up subtleties of emotions and expressions.

I have to disagree. I know they have to convey the seriousness of the matter but Gambon has make Dumbledore crazy angry like a mad man.

If you think Yoda in Star Wars have to get angry, he can't over do it by becoming out-of character. Imagine Yoda start cursing and shouting and shaking Luke Skywalker with fury, it's maddness.

Dumbledore is a wise man, and he have to portray the calm and coolness of an elite not a rampaging mass murderer;) The book deliver him perfectly whereas they make a big error on the films.

Lyrics:
The child without a name grew up to be the hand
To watch you, to shield you or kill on demand
The choice he´d made he could not comprehend
His blood a grim secret they had to command

He´s torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

The curse of his powers tormented his life
Obeying the crown was a sinister price
His soul was tortured by love and by pain
He surely would flee but the oath made him stay

He´s torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

Please forgive me for the sorrow, for leaving you in fear
For the dreams we had to silence, that´s all they´ll ever be
Still I´ll be the hand that serves you
Though you´ll not see that it is me

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

Definitely not. It seems like it's reached its peak with Deathly Hallows. And even after the last movie comes out, I think it'll be running strong for a good bit of time. Eventually it'll die out, yeah, but I think it's gonna take a while.

Not dead, but there's certainly a feeling of anticlimax. A large part of the fun (at least for me, and probably for a lot of other fans) was guessing what will happen in the next book, and how the series would end. Now that it's ended, there's nothing left to guess about. Fanfiction does help fill the gaps a bit, but of course, we'll never get the real thing back. :(

JKR talked about it shortly after DH was released :D

On July 24, 2007, Rowling announced in an interview that she "probably will" write an encyclopedia of the Harry Potter world, which would include background information cut from the narrative as well as post-Deathly Hallows information, including details of what happens to the other characters, who the new Hogwarts headmaster is, and more.[23]

Apparently JKR tried to sue someone in India this week because they built a model of Hogwarts which they intended to display at a local festival.

The court ruled in favour of the model builders :D Stop trying to sue HP fans JK, seriously!

As reported yesterday, a lawsuit was filed against an Indian community that had created a replica of Hogwarts castle to be used in an upcoming festival. Today, an Indian court rejected the claim made by author J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers for copyright breach.

"The group's lawyer said they argued that since the celebrations were held in the public interest and they were not for profit, the community did not need to pay compensation."

Neither court officials nor the lawyers for J.K. Rowling were immediately available for comment.

My least favourite book was definitely CoS. It felt like a mere sequel to PS and a little out of place before the release of the HBP and Horcruxes arc. It was probably the one book you could not read and still don't miss much of the plot.

My favourites are by far PoA followed by OotP. Everyone keeps complaining OotP is too long and it's mainly exposition and backstory, but I love it because of all this detail and because you get to see a much bigger image of the wizarding world.

At first I wasn't very excited with HBP the first time I read it, but it definitely
grew on me later.

As for DH. I generally loved it, but think it was sloppily plotted. Too much reliance on chance, extremely convenient exposition (all these info-loaded trips into Voldemort's mind for example), and the wandlore should have been touched in the previous books.

Oh, yeah, I also took a hell of an issue with certain deaths. Not my Remus, BETCH!

Post someone! :p

Regarding a long-rumored "Harry Potter Encyclopedia," Rowling told reporters that "It's not coming along, and I haven't started it yet. I never envisioned that as being the next thing I did. I wanted to take a break and a step back and then [do that] in due course."

But that doesn't mean she won't be writing something soon, she exclaimed.

From here (http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1571977/20071015/index.jhtml)...

Give the woman a break, lol!

Personally, I can't imagine an encyclopaedia would give much more info than is already in the books, and there are already resources like the HP Lexicon (http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&ct=res&cd=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hp-lexicon.org%2F&ei=paMUR4uVA5SgwwHTyOjLDw&usg=AFQjCNFNYe0Yv-HVi8tB-siH6qfw0gBLsg&sig2=oJq4ZQ6mhhIrrJo-W9ljgQ) that index all the details mentioned in the series.

If anything, an official Encyclopaedia would probably only confirm what we already know and give a bit of background info that could probably be worked out with close examination of the stuff we already have. It'd be fun if there are drawings from her own imagination in it though.

I find it really interesting that it doesn't get it's real meaning until Prince. It's just a minor event before, but then it becomes really important as the diary is one of the horcruxes. We can't say Prisoner has big importance to the "big" story either, except for Wormtail escaping to find Voldy, but they all still have some things that might seem small, but still fit really good with other books.

Honestly, I would love to see her do another "fantasy" novel - she is a great writer, but I think her imagination is what makes her extremly good, and keeps her on top.

I have never understood why being able to love was made such a big deal of - after all, it seems like everyone in the books loves someone at least (with the glaring exception of Voldemort). What's so special about it then? :confused:

Love is humanity's main strength, one which conquers all evil and sadness. We all have love, our greatest gift, which makes every one of us special in our own way.

Dumbledore is gay.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling has revealed that Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore is gay.

Rowling spoke about Dumbledore's sexuality after giving a reading of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the series, at Carnegie Hall, New York.

The writer invited questions from the audience and was asked by a young fan if Dumbledore had found "true love".

"Dumbledore is gay," she replied, explaining that he had fallen in love with rival Gellert Grindelwald, who he beat in a battle between good and bad wizards long ago.

"Falling in love can blind us to an extent," she continued, before describing Dumbledore's love as a "great tragedy" and explaining that he had felt "horribly, terribly let down".

Rowling told fans that the initial script for the movie adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince made reference to a girl that Dumbledore had once been interested in. She revealed the truth about the character to director David Yates, who removed the line.

She added that the Harry Potter books can be seen as a "prolonged argument for tolerance" and instructed her fans to "question authority".

I actually thought it was great. Instead of being just another Dark Wizard catcher or regular member of the Order, he was fighting on his own side. (Granted it was friggin' soppy, but meh.) As I read the books I never got the impression that Snape was actually interested in the politics of the war, just that he had a reason of his own to support the Order that was significant enough to cement his loyalty with them.
