I'm rewatching HBP right now and I must say the acting from everyone except Bonnie has really stepped up but what perfects the movie is Helena Bohnam Carter. I know her accent is distracting but she is sheer perfection in the role of Bellatrix. Also, Emma Watson plays those crying scenes sooo well. I'd expect an oscar for her in the future.

Crookshanks is in the beginning of the fifth movie, when Fred, George, Harry, Ron and Hermione are using the ear (in 12 Grimmauld Place).
She also appears in the third or fourth movie on the Hogwarts Express, if I remember correctly (or that's the fifth?).

That's the third movie she never appears in the fourth movie. And when will the DH rating be confirmed? When it is I'll assume it's PG-13. And tony i disagree with you about the sixth film being good. I thought it was boring mainly because it wasn't as serious as it shoulda been.

Tonyrobinson

I didn't say it was good, I said the acting was better than the previous films:p

As for the movies rating it's normally announced 3 weeks before the movie gets released. Maybe earlier in the USA. But I think it's most likely going to be PG-13 as there is nothing much in the book that would get it a higher or lower rating :D

You can work out the timeline just on the basis of two dates mentioned in Chamber of Secrets. Nick's Deathday cake says he died 500 years ago, in 1492, so the current year is 1992. Harry is 12 in CoS, so he was born in 1980. Also, Riddle's diary is said to be exactly 50 years old, and Harry finds it in early 1993, so Riddle wrote it in 1943, when he was 16. So he was born in 1926/7 (actually 31st December 1926, according to HBP). It's pretty easy to calculate the timelines in the rest of the series based on this information.

Well the GoF movie doesn't mention nothin' about Kurt Cobain.

Why even bother saying that there was no mention in GoF. If Kurt WAS mentioned in the Harry Potter universe (which he isn't), the reference is FAR more likely to exist as an obscure one liner never shown in any movie. The movies cut out, and/or completely change things from as they appear in the novels. TBH, I don't even regard the movies as canon.

While I'm no doubt looking forward to JKR's own HP encyclopaedia (whenever she gets around to writing it), I think that the HP lexicon site does a much better job than her in keeping track of the timeline. ;)

"Oh my God, it was the most liberating thing!" she tells EW.com. "The stylist just grabbed the back of my hair and took a whole ponytail of hair out. It felt amazing. I love it."

Watson, 20, has had the same shoulder-length 'do for the past 10 years as she played Hermione in the hugely popular Potter film series.

"I missed all that experimentation that most teenagers go through," she says. "I've wanted to do this since I was about 16, so as soon as I had the chance I was like, ‘Right. This is it.’”

SPOILER

The Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows split point has been revealed.

Warner Bros confirmed last year that the final instalment would be released in two parts, with the second part arriving eight months after the first.

In a report, Entertainment Weekly confirmed that the split point would occur around chapter 24 of J.K. Rowling's book.

The scene will see Lord Voldermort (Ralph Fiennes) gain possession of The Elder Wand as he takes it from former Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore's (Sir Michael Gambon) tomb.

Faced with accusations that the split had happened for 'purely financial reasons', Warner Bros Entertainment president Alan Horn hit back.

"The key word there is purely," he said.

"There's no question that Warner Bros will make more money with two films than they would have with one. But we also never ever would have done this if Jo [Rowling] had not endorsed it, and if we didn't feel that we were providing a better finale, with a more full sense of closure."

He continued: "We just respect and love the books too much for that."

The Potter films' producer David Heyman previously said that the split point would be "incredibly dramatic, very moving and make people want to watch the next film".

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part One will open in cinemas in November.

Ahhh, the song for the dancing scene with Harry and Hermione is soooo romantic. Plus in the kissing scene they are both going to be topless! I didn't think they'd actually do it in the movie but this is going to be interesting. :)

Yeah, when she told me could hardly withstrain herself. She actually *squeed* when she brought up the wants "that really choose you!" Apparently she's going to buy enough gryffindor jumpers to be able to wear one to uni everyday, like a school uniform! :D

They sell the robes too, but they were really expensive. $100 for just the robes is a ridiculous price.

The wands are pretty expensive too, for what they are anyway.

Basically the whole place is over priced, but it's worth the money IMO :p

Indeed they will. It's all in the detailed review on Mugglecast. They'll be CGI but emerge from smoke topless and kiss passionatleywhen they come out of the locket.

And the song they dance to is pretty romantic too. I'm definatley liking their relationship. :)

Maybe, but I don´t know, he was supposed to have a ´lion-like´ mane of hair. This is just medium-long hair, it doesn´t resemble a lion mane at all. I think they could have made it more dramatic, they are wizards after all, not muggles.

And yeah, Xeno has white, tooth floss like hair in the book. :D

The first time I read it - I didn't think so. But my Mum did... and every single read through I've made after she mentioned that, I've totally seen it.

Dumbledore did not kill him. Grindelwald was alive and well (albeit in prison) until Voldy went looking for the Elder Wand. By that point in time, Dumbledore had been dead for months, after being the owner of the Elder Wand for about half a century.

Yeah, and that's fine, but the problem is that he was sort of the "last boss" in all the other books. He wasn't even an obstacle in the last one. It was beyond obvious that Harry would crush him without any problem. I would have hoped for more, like for example Voldemort ordering the ogres and the teachers plus students fighting together. The ending was a mess (and the epilogue was just terrible..)

I loved HP, but the last book was the worst of the bunch.

Wouldn't that have sort of defeated the object of 'destroying' them? I mean, Harry would be chasing horcruxes till the end of his days, that wouldn't make an interesting story. Sure if the diary horcrux had gone into Ginny, it would have been all tragic, but what would happen if the locket horcrux transferred to Hermione, the Nagini horcrux had gone into Neville etc, the plot device would get old very fast. Better the way it is.

I didn't even like the whole Harry is a horcrux thing, I mean Voldy had just tried to kill Harry (with the intention of creating a horcrux), but in being hit with his own avada kadavra curse, voldy is left as a sort of floating soul piece and he floats off somewhere, but his torn piece just happens to go into Harry - becasue there was no where for it to go? Now that is lame. And a plot hole, imo. Had Voldy performed the horcrux spell to capture it already? Can a torn bit of soul sort of just be put on hold until a receptacle is found? We don't need to know every last detail of how a horcrux is made, but some basic info would have been nice. Not, oh well Voldy's torn soul had no where to go...

I'm sorry if the above is a spoiler, but I didn't know which parts to white out that would make sense :o.

its quite the spoiler, but i already knew all that.

i liked that Harry was a Horcrux; mostly becuase i was hoping that he was going to die. it does make sense though, isnt that how he was able to become a Parseltongue, his scar burn when Voldemort was near, or how they began to share memories and such?

he unintentionally made a horcrux, adn when harry's mother protected him, her love was more powerful than Voldy's spell, or something; and thats why Harry lived, adn in turn, got the scar. so, part of his soul transferred into Mr. Potter, becuase maybe he died a little inside when the killing curse didnt actually work.

One thing that bugged me about the whole Horcrux malarky was the big deal that was made of "Splitting the soul into 7 pieces". Since 7 was some kind of magic number? Well, someone should give Voldemort (or JK herself) some basic maths lessons because the 7 Horcruxes + Voldemort himself = 8. He split his soul into 8. :confused:

Unless I'm mistaken with something?

And from what i heard in PoA Wormtail sold potter's parents to voldemort and wormtail made voldemort become enemies with harry from what i heard in HBP book. Also HBP movie is ok but i still like GoF and OotP better the things i didn't like about the sixth movie was the comedy parts the serious suspenseful parts of that movie was better IMO.This bugged me a little as well. As xcrushterx just said, I believe it was 8 as well.

See, the one part he has earlier on when he was a living parasite on the back of Professor Quirrell's head - that is a part of his soul. If it's not, he won't be operate-able, not moving not talking, not anything.

I hope the final movies will explain this more clearly though. Unless they shrug this all off and not mentioning 7 as the magical number at all, lol. :p

Guys I've been rethinking again. Maybe it was 7, because let's think about it again: ....originally Voldemort intended it to be 7 Horcuxes. But the unthinkable happened when Voldy wants to kill Harry - his mother put a countercurse and it splits his one soul apart into two. A half of him with him and another half with Harry.

So in that sense:

1.Tom Riddle's Diary
2.Gaunt ring
3.Slytherin locket
4.Hufflepuff cup
5.Ravenclaw diadem
6.Nagini
7.Harry Potter (1/2) and Voldemort himself (1/2)

So maybe everyting was right after all. Feel free to express your opinions.

xcrushterx

No, the diary and Nagini are separate. I'm just saying that by the time Nagini was turned into a Horcrux, the Diary was already destroyed. Had the diary not be destroyed, Voldemort would still have turned Nagini into a Horcrux because as far as he was aware, he was still one short. Lets not forget he most likely didn't know the diary had been destroyed.

When the diary was destroyed, the fragment of Voldemort's soul that resided inside was also destroyed. The ghost of Tom Riddle in CoS was the part of his soul that was encased in the diary when it was created, and it's clear that he/it died with the diary. So it wasn't transferred to Nagini at a later date. Sorry if I wasn't clear with what I meant :o

I was under the impression that Nagini was made into a horcrux because Voldemort failed to make the horcrux he was going to make with Harry's death (so not having 7), but of course that failed as Voldemort was reduced to little more than vapor/a soul piece. And Harry was the unintended horcrux. I assumed that this meant Voldemort had an object ready to store his torn piece of soul in to. Does anyone know what the object would have been? I don't think it was mentioned.

Had his plan worked and Voldy had killed baby Harry, he'd have

1, Gaunt Ring
2, Diary
3, Ravenclaw diadem
4, Hufflepuff cup
5, Slytherin locket
6, unknow object that he would have made after killing Harry
7, Himself as he intended to have 7 parts of soul

Probably a different object. Something of big historical significance. I doubt voldemort cared for Harry's glasses (which I doubt he wore, since he was less than 1 year old).

7 has always been a magical number. Or at least an important one. Along with 3 and 12. I think it has something to do with the fact that there are 7 days in the week, or the 7 deadly sins, or maybe something completely different (I really have no idea why).

But those numbers are always used in fairy tales.

No. When he killed Harry, he did it so Harry wouldn't be able kill him first.

Did you read HBP at all? I guess you must have forgotten. ;) The whole point of getting the true memory from Slughorn was to find out how many horcruxes Voldy had made. Dumbledore already knew that the Ring and the Diary were horcruxes, but he needed to hear Tom Riddle's conversation with Slughorn to know just what number Voldy wanted for his horcruxes. When the true memory is finally seen (in the chapter called 'Horcruxes'), Riddle asks Slughorn 'Isn’t seven the most powerfully magical number?' So that's the number he wanted for his soul fragments. Of course, he finally wound up with 8, since Harry was an accidental horcrux.

According to DH book voldemort didn't intend to make harry a horcrux otherwise voldemort wouldn't been able to kill harry and dumbledore said that voldemort was so unstabile with his magic a horcrux ended up in harry potter that wasn't ment to happen. Or half a horcrux was in harry and half in voldy.

i was asking why ppl were saying that the number 7 was so holy in HP; the only things we could come up with were: 7 years of hogwatrs, 7 Horcruxes (that Voldy thought he made), adn the 7 Weasley children. i was reading it as the number 7 was a prevalant and reoccuring number throughout the series...

maybe we should check pages 7, 77, adn 777 in every book for clues :pi:

and also we could look at chapter 7, character 7, word 7, the seventh sentence, the 7th paragraph, adn make an anagram out of the seventh most commonly used word in the whole book :jmp:.

Actually, going back, there does seem to be more significance to the number 7 than at first glance. It's nothing major perhaps for the plot, but the number crops up a lot.

In Deathly Hallows, JKR split the dedication 7 ways: (1) Jo's husband, her (2,3,4) 3 children, (5) her mother, (6) her sister and (7) to the fans.

The hiding place of the Philosopher's Stone

Accessed by entering a trapdoor in the forbidden corridor on the third floor, and protected by a gauntlet of seven magical challenges set up by the teachers.

* A giant three-headed dog named Fluffy placed specially to guard the trapdoor by Hagrid.
* Devil's Snare, grown by Professor Sprout.
* A room containing dozens of keys, charmed by Flitwick to sprout wings and fly near the ceiling. One of these keys will unlock the door to the next section. However, in the film adaptation, the keys attack the seeker of the Stone.
* A large chessboard with an army of large chessmen, transfigured by McGonagall. To continue to the door on the opposite side, the person in question must beat the chessmen at a game of wizards’ chess where the player must risk his life if he loses. Ron and Professor Quirrell are the only wizards to win the game of wizards’ chess.
* A room with a large troll inside. This is Quirrell's challenge. In the book, Quirrell had knocked out his own troll to get to the last room and thus the trio did not have to fight it; in the film, it does not appear, but it appears in the PlayStation One version of the game.
* A series of potions, brewed by Snape. A logical riddle, not magic, has to be solved. There are two doors, blocked by fire. One potion will allow the person to exit the way he or she arrived, another will allow him or her to continue to the next chamber, two are nettle wine, and the other three are poison. This challenge does not appear in the film, but does in the video game adaptation.
* The Mirror of Erised can be found in the final chamber, further enchanted by Dumbledore to bestow the Philosopher's Stone upon a seeker only hoping to acquire the stone but not use it for selfish means.

7! ;) Also -

Transfiguration, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Charms, Potions, Astronomy, History of Magic, and Herbology are compulsory subjects for the first five years.

7 again! :p
