That trailer is fantastic :jmp: Damn WB for pushing back the film!!!

I really despise the Humour they try to do aswell. Its good to have light moments with Ron and or Hagrid or someone... but with Harry and Hermione its just cheesy.

"Erm.. sorry... kidding."

Ugh -_- Well lowers the effect of the trailer IMO. They should have put something dark and sinister at the end. Thats why I love the smaller trailer so so much. "Did you know sir? Then?"

"Did I know I had just met the darkest Wizard of all time?"

*thud*

"No."

Just keeps the atmosphere... But otherwise the new trailer is awesome. :D

An update on DH casting:

Emma Thompson (Trelawney)- CUT
From Leaky: "Instead she will be making a second Nanny McPhee film, noting "I’m making my own ‘Nanny McPhee’ next year. They mean much more to me.”

Miriam Margolyes (Prof. Sprout)- IN



I'm glad Prof. Sprout is making a return after only being in CoS. I was sad at first to hear that Emma Thompson wouldn't be returning, until I read that she wasn't really into it.

This movie is going to be a disaster. David Yutz (my nickname for him ;)), completely destroyed the 5th film and all I can say good about it was that it was entertaining, I honestly forgot I was even watching Harry Potter.

They cut out Dumbledore's funeral too in the new movie, so can't wait to see what else he's managed to destroy with this one. :(

They've cut and added quite a bit. Like for example, Bellatrix is only supposed to have one appearance in the book and that's with Narcissa in the beginning. Turns out, they've thrown her into the fight at Hogwarts, and apparently it's not even going to be a fight and they've made her have something to do with Dumbledore's death, which is not supposed to happen.

I believe I read a while ago that they're putting the Funeral Scene into the first Deathly Hallows film. So it's going to be there, but not in this one.

Which means the film will end on not such a depressing note, but a very dark one if they don't add much after the event.

I'm glad they're putting the funeral in the deathly hallows film rather than HBP but according to trailer #3 Harry will still cry in HBP the part when he cries "Fight back you coward" you can see his face all sad and crying right there. So he cries in PoA, GoF, OotP, and HBP but we don't know about DH yet.

Not sure how it'd work. I guess one game each book/film would mean they could be more in-depth, but it's feel a bit money-spinnerish, I guess.

Perhaps the hub-idea is best. They could do books 1-4 in one game and then 5-7 in a second.

@ John York: I agree with you about the epilogue. It was cheesy and just doesn't feel like the previous chapters. Its as if JKR told a 5 year old what he/she wantsto happen to Harry,Ron and Hermione at the end and to write it for her.

The "mindless" wandering in a tent I actually liked, despite the drama that happened during it. I loved how they ran way, took refuge at Grimmaulds place then they had to escape and traveled around the country, to Xeno Lovegood's, Godric's Hollow, Shell cottage, Gringotts and the ministry. It was really varied and different, not the usual "another year at Hogwarts".
After all that, they went back to Hogwarts, and it really feels like "Wow! its been along time since we read about them running around the corridors of Hogwarts, with the talking portraits, torches and suits or armor are around them.

AND being given the ultimate critical information they needed from this group. Wtf? probability of that happening = 0 :rolleyes:). But other than that I liked the fact that they were on the run and had no ideas of what to do next. It rang true.

The ending was cheesy, but also unbelievable. Apart from all these closest of schoolfriends getting together and then marrying, the pairing of Ron and Hermione should never have happened. And I think it would have been far more reasonable for Hermione and Harry to get together after Ron abandoned them both whilst on the run. Based on Hermione's interactions with Harry (her constant support and affection - whenever Harry and Ron fall out, she sticks with Harry - and his trust of her) this relationship would have felt more real and justified than anything that went on between Ron and Hermione, and Harry and Ginny. It also would have been great character development for all 3 of the main characters. Hermione growing up and realising her infatuation with the juvenile Ron was misplaced, Ron accepting the outcome of his immature behaviour (stomping off and leaving the pair of them, but also his behaviour with Hermione throughout the books), and Harry realising what real love is beyond mourning and longing for lost parents he has no memory of.

Her devotion and loyalty to him is unquestionable, why love someone that you trust less? And Harry being in love with Ginny is completely random and out of the blue.

Ron and Hermiones pairing will always bother me. They just were NOT meant for each other. I always fancied Ron with Luna or someone similar. Him and Hermione are just a no-no.

It's such an obvious turn for the books to take as well. IMO Hermione should have gone with Neville and Ron with Luna..they may ALSO be odd couplings but they fit soo much better.

Hermione and Neville..:) Neville loves Herbology and Hermione loves anything about books and knowledge. Kinda nice ring to it but I still prefer Harry/Hermione as they have something much strong than sharing similarities of interest.

I loved the Ron/Hermione pairing and it was obvious they would end up together since the days of the Yule Ball. And yup, it is an obvious turn, but would it be better if something like this wasn't obvious? You like someone a lot for 4-5 years and then just decide to marry and have children with someone with whom you never felt any romantic connection, they hardly enter the "close friends" category either.

I agree with your pairing of Hermione and Harry. Her devotion and loyalty to him is unquestionable, why love someone that you trust less? And Harry being in love with Ginny is completely random and out of the blue.

Harry and Hermione were always just best friends, don't you feel loyal and devoted to your friends? As I recall Harry never had any feelings towards Hermy and imo she always (well, at least since she was grown-up enough) had them for Ron.

It's available in all book stores and some people claim it's pretty good though i don't really care for it as some parts of the book are just like spells like heart key tale lock etc. which ain't my cuppa tea so i only cared for books 1-7.

*shudders* Let's all pretend those last few pages were never written, people...

Realistic or not, I think it was meant from the beginning that Ron and Hermione would end up together...However, I think it's a miracle that 19 years after the end of the series they are still married and haven't cursed each other into oblivion. I like to think that they spent their honeymoon at St Mungo's.

Maybe the Harry/Ginny thing would be ok if Ginny actually was a well-developped character...

As for Harry/Hermione...Meh...Just no. :p

Does anyone has a favorite HP movie soundtrack? Mine is Chamber of Secrets because the music has :

- the greatest composition of Harry Potter theme. The first HP theme(Prologue) in Philosopher's Stone is original but lack strong mysterious feel to it like in this one. It's all too cheery imo whereas in CoS (Prologue Book II Escape From The Dursley) it starts really creepy, child like music box dingaling and then it slowly melds in with the actual theme. And it didn't stop there, the music is haunting and it's like a long horn being blown in a chilly night. But to be honest I love both version but prefer the second one most. :D
And also there's the quidditch music within the Prologue II, very epic and heart pumping, energetic and went to glorious theme like you're winning the Quidditch cup.

- Gilderoy Lockhart's theme always makes me smile, as it sounds so cheesy like he's 'so superficial and great but doesn't really know what he's doing' kinda theme.

- Introducing Collin sounds like a music you woke up on a great morning, and start baking blueberry muffins and having a good time. If that makes sense. Collin is overall a nice guy.

- Fawkes Is Reborn. Astonishingly great music, as it is soothing and calming to me.
- Harry's Wondrous World as being heard in the end credits of the movie. A nice track overall and harmonious, love it.



I got it all on 5 CDs since I love the cover art and inlays, and I appreciate them more in hardcopy than buying softcopies. Can't wait for Half Blood Prince soundtrack and movie, what's it gonna be like? :cln:

Actually, they are not. I thought they were a female band, too, because I first read GoF in Greek, and in the translation they are as portrayed as a female band, but the members are all male. I think JKR had them as wizards of the month at her official site or something.

The book was retitled to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for publication in the United States. The main reason for this retitle was that the U.S. publishers thought that a child would not want to read a book that sounded as though it was associated with philosophy.

JK Rowling gives this explanation:
“ Arthur Levine, my American editor, and I decided that words should be altered only where we felt they would be incomprehensible, even in context, to an American reader... The title change was Arthur's idea initially, because he felt that the British title gave a misleading idea of the subject matter. In England, we discussed several alternative titles and Sorcerer's Stone was my idea. ”

When did they ever say the film would be a PG? I'm sure it'll be a 12. PG seems to be a rarity nowadays. BBFC has a fit over the smallest amount of fantasy violence.

You can see the rating on the official website, as well as some of the posters. And I meant US PG.

Is the film really a PG? This surprises me as with the new trailer (which is brilliant), it looks quite dark.

woody, I hope you get your book back. I recently reread the last 4 books back-to-back and it really helped to fill the gap and also remind me of things I'd forgotten, how JKR weaves things together. You know the little details that seemingly have no significance only to brought into a later book.

You have absolutely zero reasons to be rude, so you need to stop. It makes sense that 1-3 would be PG, as they have more mild themes. However 4-7 all deal with more adult elements. There's a major difference between the second half of the series. So, how about you get over yourself and don't tell me what to think. ;)

The more I consider it, the more I think the franchise would've been so much better and more faithful as a TV series.
Sure, it might not have had the big cinematic epic feel, and it certainly wouldn't have had such a big budget - but it would've given them the opportunity to be much much more faithful to the books.

I got a surprise for you this a scene from Half-Blood Prince
Test screening viewers tell us of the discovery of Dumbledore’s body
Harry then returns to find the whole school gathered around Dumbledore's body, McGonagall in the front completely stunned and silent. Harry kneels down at Dumbledore's side, brushes a hair out of his face and finds the locket, but does not open it. Clutching the locket He starts to cry and Ginny goes and holds him also crying. Then following McGonagall's lead, everyone lights there wand (I think they all murmur something in unison but I can't remember what) and slowly raise them as one in the air. Final shot of that scene is from above with all the lighted wands surrounding the tower, Dumbledore, Harry and Ginny

The scene with Dumbledore's body at the foot of the tower is very, very cool... I cried. Everyone is gathered around - I mean, lots of students, faculty, etc. Harry is next to the body, crying, and Ginny is comforting him - all of the others are keeping a respectful distance. Someone - I don't remember whom - raises their wand in the air, lighted up at the tip, and everyone else slowly follows suit as the camera pans out until all you can see are the lighted tips of the raised wands

everyone raises their wands to get rid of the Dark Mark.

So if harry cried in GoF, OotP, and HBP, he'll cry in DH guaranteed.

I know, I can't quite swallow all my rage when they don't follow the books. But then cosidering it's HP, they shouldn't miss out minor stuff because you never know when Rowling's gonna make it major. For people who don't read the books, it can become quite confusing.

That's why Rowling's an essential part in writing the movie. She screened all the scripts/story and add & throw away unnecessary things to fit into the movie all this time.:tmb:

It is impossible to be 100% faithful to the books due to the time constraint, but still as it turns out I still enjoy the movies. ;)

It's not really the changes themselves that bother me as much as the fact that most of the changes are unnessecary, pointless and sometimes downright stupid. Certainly not an improvement on the original.
And the fact that they're doing two films out of DH certainly doesn't nessecarily mean that it's going to be faithful, no matter what they say. For one, they have already made changes that will inevitably lead to more changes.

Anyway. The trailer looks fantastic, but I'm not getting my hopes up. I'll enjoy it better this way.

Films and books are two completely different things.

Also, imo the 6th book was filled with unnecessary stuff, so the more they cut it, the better.

When they remove important parts from the books and actually waste afew precious minutes over-doing a scene such as the dragon part and actually make Harry fall off of his broom and slide down a Hogwarts tower roof and spending two minutes grabbing and clutching to get to his broom and Hermione's useless screaming "Your wand, Harry! Use your wand!" when she's not the champion and person tested, of course I'll get mad.

All Harry did was try to make the dragon get off the ground, and when he knew the horntail was too clingy to move aside, he teased her and made her raging and rose up higher and then she followed and then he quickly sped down and grabbed the egg.
He didn't fly out off the closure, around the towers and fell off his broom and slid down a roof and spent minutes hanging there to get back to his broom...they wanted to make "ooooh looks so stunning" with effects and stuff and forgot how a time wasting and unnecessary that was..and also so unrealistic.
Yes, Harry Potter is already unrealistic with the whole magic thing, but this is one thing and its another thing making a 14 year old hanging off high distances off the ground and act all Superman.

I'd give more examples, but I only watched the 4th and 5th movie twice along time ago, I don't remember much.

telcontar
22-04-09, 15:11
^There's nothing superman-like when someone hangs from the roof. And he did nothing extraodinary that the Harry from the books couldn't do. The whole scene lasted 4 something minutes, which would be probably a couple minutes longer than if they did it exactly like in the book. We have two extra minutes and 3 years of fans whining because of those two minutes.

ShadyCroft
22-04-09, 15:15

22-04-09, 15:26
^ Yeap, but there are no minutes in books. And I love the books as well (except the 6th one), but I prefer judging movies from neutral point of view.

To get a good film adaptation, you don't have to copy every unnecessary detail from the book. Ask Peter Jackson. :)

ShadyCroft
22-04-09, 16:06
Of course you should, we all should as well. Movies are different than books and vice versa. But do understand that a person who did not read the Harry Potter books would not understand Ootp. They simply did not do the Prophecy justice. None of my friends or family read the books and when the watched the movie they all had tons of questions.

Who made the prophecy ?
Why was it in that room in the ministry ?
And other questions.

Of course you'd miss those details because you already know the answers. I watched the HP5 movie the second time from a non-fan perspective.
I just watched it, putting aside all I know from books, and simply wrote down what was mentioned one minute after another. Too many things were left that really raise questions.

And I don't need to ask Peter Jackson. :p I read all Lord of the Rings books and watched all movies and I understand what you said.

And I see we agree on one thing, that the 6th book is not our fav. Dunno why, I guess the too much random romance stuff really irked me, probably cause I don't have a boyfriend or anything and that just ticked me off.
But Harry's and Dumbledore's lessons where they discussed Voldemort's past were absolutely my favorite parts. It put so many pieces together.
