That's horrible! I hope they receive some sort of punishment. Obviously the teenagers weren't real Harry Potter fans. If they had been, they may have picked up on a few things concerning respect, love, friendship, *insert positive trait* that are present in the books and movies. There's no reason for such hate to stem from something so simple.

To change the subject, the filming for Bill and Fleur's wedding will be shot on August 10th. Very excited :jmp:

So I just heard this awful news I felt so outraged I had to put it somewhere here. A guy sitting next to me in a cafe today read outloud to his friends from the newspaper the following news: In London, during a Half-blood Prince cinema session, a woman had to stand up and ask some guys to stop making so much noise. They later set her on fire.






...sad.

I also told some kids to shut up during the movie... I would never had expected a reaction like that! However that story goes quite well with all that other ****ed up **** going in the world... I hope she gets through without permanent damage and those stupid teenagers are punished.

Well those kids are rude and need discipline :smk:

Well then it shouldn't have been cut, when the some of the scenes (e.g. Malfoy getting hit with Sectumsempra) should have been more graphical. It's not like these films should be aimed at little kids anymore, they would get the plot at this time anyway, let them re-watch the old films and grow up.

I understand the argument, but I would have been happy either way.

Look at it this way: the movie was probably more lighthearted because Deathly Hallows will be anything but lighthearted...it was probably a 'bon voyage' to the younger aspect of the series, to make way for the adult movie. I don't think DH will be R but it'll certainly be 13. I was overall happy with the movie.

Well i agree with you iknow it shoulda been PG-13 as well but unfortuneately it wasn't. :( Well i think under 13's should keep watching SS, CoS and PoA til they turn 13 then they may watch GoF, OotP, HBP etc.

Well i know but that still doesn't mean HBP should be minor and of course DH will almost certainly be PG-13. Well the 4th, 5th, and 6th movies are the best 3 IMO. GoF was the best HBP second best OotP third best. the first 3 movies weren't that great IMHO.

Yeah, the only way DH would be R would be MAYBE if they do the Dumbledore scene exactly as it is in the book (i.e. naked Harry).

As far as ratings go, the movie industry is the exact opposite of the game industry (game ratings becoming more strict, movies very loose). For example, if the "heavy alcohol use" in HBP had been in, say, CoS, it would've been PG-13.

I found it silly that people (mostly moms with little kids and what I suspect to be middle-aged Twilight fans) have started bashing Potter over things like alcohol use and, more recently, "damaging the reputation of journalism" (an article from a professor at my own school, which is very pro-potter. I was very surprised to find it on MuggleNet a while back.)

When I first read your post I thought: Harry was naked when Dumbledore died on the tower??!!! But then I re-read the post...

Yes...the religious fanatics have somewhat slowed their assault. They flamed up when Rowling outed Dumbledore (no pun intended :ton:) but they've calmed down again.

I think it has a lot to do with the clear religious symbolism in DH, as well as Rowling herself stating that she had written this symbolism into the series purposefully.

I was honestly shocked that anyone (ANYONE) from my school (Baylor) would bash hp. I don't know a single person on campus that dislikes the series. And this is a very strict, Baptist school.

Which brings up the question: Why don't we have a Quidditch team?:confused:

Oh common, the wand raising scene was the most touching HP moment ever! Cedric and Sirius... well, they just died, but now we really had an emotional farewell scene.

I watched HBP for the third time three days ago (this time in English). The young Tom Riddle was amazing, this boy had some subtle acting going on! I absolutely love the expression on his face when the wardrobe bursts into flames: shock and satisfaction at the same time...

I also keep discovering all those little details in this movie. When Luna hands out Quibblers in the Hogwarts Express, there's a chocolate frog climbing up one of the glass doors, only to be grabbed and eaten by a student moments later. :D

"There was a groan of bedsprings, and Harry's mattress descended a few inches as George sat down near his feet.
"So, got there yet?" said George eagerly. (100)

"He's having a go at my mother!" Seamus yelled. (218)

"Ron was lying sprawled on his back with his mouth wide open." (121)

"Manners, Potter," said Snape dangerously. "Now, I want you to close your eyes."
Harry threw him a filthy look before doing as he was told. He did not like the idea of standing there with his eyes shut while Snape faced him, carrying a wand. (535)

"Ron wrenched the hangings apart, and Harry stared up at him in the moonlight, as he lay flat on his back." (586)

"Well, we'll soon find out, won't we?" said Snape smoothly. "Wand out, Potter."
Harry moved into his usual position... (638)

"... every part of him screaming for release, Harry felt the creature use him again..." (720)

"He was rather taller than Snape, who, Harry noticed, had balled his fist in the pocket of his cloak over what Harry was sure was the handle of his wand."



"Stand up and take out your wand, Potter."



"He was on all fours again on Snape's office floor."

Order of the Phoenix is my second favourite film, although I read the book. I actually read it in English when I was 13. My English wasn't so good back then, so it was pretty hard to get through the book. But yeah, the movies, it's all a matter of taste and personal opinions.

In Germany all movies are dubbed. We have some very talented voice actors and when you grow up with dubbed movies you just don't notice the difference between spoken words and lip movement any longer.

Nevertheless Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman are just not the same without their unique voices and British accents. I liked Bellatrix' German voice though, she sounds even more lunatic!

This is the German trailer, it's mostly voice overs though:

I agree. I get that it was meant to show that Harry gave Snape all the respect and recognition he deserved, but it's unrealistic, sappy and most probably not what Snape would have even wanted.

Interesting question raised by Mugglenet:

Do you think the Deathly Hallows video games will be split in two parts like the film, as well?

Plus, would you WANT it to be? Or would you rather have just one game?

The Harry Potter films could be rereleased on extended Blu-ray editions in the near future. After a recent MPAA bulletin of rated films listed an extended version of 'Harry Potter of the Sorcerer's Stone', film site Rope of Silicon contacted a Warner Brothers representative, who confirmed that "all Harry Potter films are being planned to get special upcoming releases", although no announcement has been made yet.

Indeed, ultimate editions of 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' and 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' are already up for preorder on Amazon, albeit without a release date.

As to the actual length of the extended versions, Slashfilm notes that 'Sorcerer's Stone' director Chris Columbus added 7 minutes of deleted scenes back into the movie for its May 2004 ABC broadcast premiere.

No, they don't. The Special Extended Editions of Lord of the Rings were released a few months after the release of the regular versions. They are the movies they are supposed to be and the additional scenes are not extending the movie, they are completing them. Scenes like Saruman's death are part of the story and there are a lot of plot holes without them.

Harry Potter, on the other hand? The first movie was released on DVD in 2002. It included six minutes of deleted scenes that didn't work in the movie and that were left out for a reason. Now we get a version that's fifteen minutes longer? I don't think it's necessary at all. I don't believe Chris Columbus is even involved in the production of this extended edition, so it can't even be called Director's Cut. Remember Terminator - Judgment Day? The special edition is full of scenes James Cameron cut out for a reason, that's the reason I prefer the shorter version of this movie. It's all about money... But yeah, nothing new, eh? :rolleyes:

Here are my thoughts about the different films and their possible extended editions:

Philosopher's Stone - I'd like to see Peeves, I remember his scenes being shot but never completed. I also missed Snape's bottle riddle right before the final confrontation with Voldemort, but I don't believe that scene was ever included in the script anyway.

Chamber of Secrets - Gosh, that movie is already way too long! :eek:

Prisoner of Azkaban - A masterpiece. Don't you dare changing anything about it!

Goblet of Fire - That movie felt like a bunch of random scenes put together... I think some additional scenes wouldn't be a bad idea for this one. Nevertheless there won't be Dursleys or Mrs. Weasley, after all they never were part of the movie anyway.

Order of the Phoenix - A little more Tonks, a little more Cho? Of course two thirds from the book were missing in this film, I don't see which parts of it would work as an addition to this movie though.

Half-Blood Prince - We need so much more backstory and information about the Horcruxes!

All in all I don't see how this extended editions should work. There won't be any new important plot points or characters included (except of Peeves?), I guess some scenes might be a little longer and there might be some short scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor for a reason. This is probably just for die-hard fans and collectors... I'm really torn between wanting to see the additional stuff and preferring the version the director wanted us to see.

I read that Order of the Phoenix was originally three hours long, but David Yates cut it down because he wanted it to be tigher-paced.

I've watched the deleted scenes from Chamber on Youtube, and I'd like to see those implemented into the film.

I wonder when Order of the Phoenix will make it on regular TV like ABC7 or ABCFamily? Perhaps late this year like thanksgiving or Xmas during Harry Potter weekend?

If you're talking about Oliver Wood, he appears a few times in the whole series, though I don't think he ever has some important plot line connected to him.
Same goes for Madam Hooch. I think her only appearances are when she judges the quidditch games.

Actually, I think Oliver Wood last appeared in GoF in the Quidditch World Cup. In the movies he only appeared in 1 and 2.

Wait ! Did he also come to the battle of Hogwarts in HP7, seeing as all the Harry Potter characters made an appearance in the last book ?

If you wanna know what happened to the actor, look him up. His name is Sean Biggerstaff.

According to Wikipedia: "Oliver appears briefly in Goblet of Fire, when he excitedly introduces Harry to his parents at the Quidditch World Cup and announces that he joined the Puddlemere United reserve team." He also fights at the Battle of Hogwarts and is among the survivors. Sean Biggerstaff wasn't cast for the seventh movie, so PS and CoS will stay all we'll see of Oliver in the movies.

Talking about Oliver Wood...In PoA I was a bit sad that they didn't include more Quidditch. For Oliver it was a pretty important year because it was his last chance of winning the Quidditch Cup and all. I can see why they left it out though. It wasn't essential to the main plot. The movie would've been too long. Plus Oliver wasn't even in the movie script...so, yeah.
