Peeves have you even read the Harry Potter books? :p You seem to base your facts/opinions on the series on the movies rather than the books.

Well I'm not used to reading books especially really long ones so that's why i based my opinions on the movies instead.

It is the source material, so of course it's the most superior medium of all.

And for people who thinks JK Rowling is a satanist. Honestly, don't you read? Google, wiki or something. But meh, mostly those people don't even read her books, let alone google about her. Seriously, why judge something you don't understand fully?

And I'm not pointing anyone, I'm just talking in general. Sometimes I read on newspaper this sort of nonsense and it's all a load of tosh.

I do agree the books are better than the movies well only the last 4 ones though. Sometimes when i read parts of GoF, OotP, HBP, and DH they add a suspenseful tone more than the movies do. so the older films are in red and the newer/darker in blue.
1.Sorcerer's Stone
2.Chamber of Secrets
3.Prisoner of Azkaban
4.Goblet of Fire
5.Order of the Phoenix
6.Half-Blood Prince

This is how I see the two actors' portrayal of Dumbledore: Richard Harris had that calm grand-fatherly aura about him, while Gambon has an air of power. Gambon was a little over the top with his anger in GoF, but he's calmed down since then. I don't know Richard Harris's acting style much so it is hard to judge how he would have done in a scene facing Voldemort. Gambon was brilliant in that situation, imo. If only we could have a morphed Harris/Gambon style dumbledore, then he would have been perfect. It would have been better image wise to keep his look consistant. Hard to do with two different actors, but that is what make-up and wigs are for :p. Actually DD in HBP was much more in line with my imagined DD and more impressive looking.

If only the film had followed the book more closely for the astromony tower scene. :(

I only didn't like Gambon in GoF (because of those out-of-character rage outbursts) and I'd blame that on the director rather than the actor.

Well i like Michael Gambon Dumbledore better than the Richard Harris one only because the richard harris one didn't make me laugh that much. What michael gambon did in GoF to make me laugh was he yelled out SILENCE! when the students were complaining that they couldn't put their name in the Goblet and also when he yelled to harry did you put your name in da goblet da fire?! That made me laugh :vlol: And the reason why GoF is my favorite potter film was because of the tournament tasks, yule ball, music, dark action, etc.

^ I know Gambon made me laugh when he held Harry by the neck and all....:vlol: clutching his skirt *ahem* robe and running around.

Harris was a far more wise-old-man type, he could've used a bit more eccentricity, I s'pose....(Gambon could've used a little less in GoF :vlol:)

I suppose the hugely out-of-character out burst in GoF was why I began to dislike him (even though it made me laugh :p)

He was absolute bat**** crazy, pushing Harry and screaming at him at the top of his lungs. Even one of the trophies on display fell down to the floor!

But I think he absolutely nailed Dumbledore in Half Blood Prince. He was calm, intelligent, sympathethic and relateable. More realistic in a sense.

That was because it was an asspull. I think she cooked up the whole Deathly Hallows storyline (the bit about the Hallows themselves, that is) after HBP was released, and she realized that the fans had already come up with pretty much every possible variant of how the story of Book 7 would go, so she needed to come up with something completely new, and totally out of the blue, or else she might get accused of plagiarising fan fiction. :p That explains why all the stuff about wand ownership and similar crap had never been mentioned in the previous books, even though such situations had come up literally dozens of times in the past. People disarming each other, that is. Wouldn't Voldy's wand belong to Harry after the showdown in GoF? Yet Voldy seems to be able to use it on Harry perfectly well in OoTP. And wouldn't the fact that Dumbledore was using The Elder Wand (i.e an unbeatable wand) in his duel with Voldy have worked in his favour to some extent at least? ;)

you can still posess it and use it, but the actual Unbeatable power will only present itself to the one who rightfully owns it, but denies having any desire to have such a great power.

which duel are you referring to? Dumbledore didnt ever lose a battle with Voldy. (at least, none that ended up in either one dying)

Isn't that an exact description of Dumbledore? He was the rightful owner, btw. He got it legitimately when he beat Grindelwald.

which duel are you referring to? Dumbledore didnt ever lose a battle with Voldy. (at least, none that ended up in either one dying)At the end of OotP. Voldy escapes - not what I'd call a win for Dumbledore. People don't have to die in order to lose duels. And similarly, Voldy certainly lost the duel against Harry at the end of GoF, so his wand should belong to Harry.

Apparently the wand chooses its master, so it could be that a friendly match or a not so ´serious´ duel wouldn´t be enough for the wand to consider its current owner not worthy...:o

In the last book it seemed like a simple disarming spell would be enough though, which is still strange. I mean when Draco disarmed Dumbledore, that wasn´t even a duel right? But still the Elder Wand considered Draco to be its master, and after that Harry disarmed Draco and became the master. :confused:

'Yet'? The man had owned the Elder Wand for more than 50 years! And he had got it in the most most legitimate manner, i.e. by defeating its previous owner in a duel. On the other hand, Harry somehow became the rightful owner without even so much as touching the bloody thing! :rolleyes: Can you say 'gaping big plot holes'? :p

Did he? I wouldn't have said Voldy lost. Harry broke the connection and ran off, while LV got bombarded by a load of ghosts from his own wand!

I guess it depends on what you consider losing. IMO, Voldy certainly lost because he couldn't do what he intended to do, which is to kill Harry.

I've been wondering about that! If you're dueling with your friends for fun and they disarm you do they own your wand? Or does that only work in SRS BSNS duels?
Presumably only in the latter case - or else we have to assume that by teaching the kids to duel in CoS, Lockhart and Snape were essentially teaching them how to steal each others' wands. ;) Of course, it would have helped immensely if JKR had taken some time out from her riveting descriptions of the joys of camping in DH to stick in a paragraph or two more about how wand ownership really works.

Magic knows everything.

i also think that it has to actually be a fair fight, for the Elder Wand to become under new ownership, and for it to physically change hands.

at least, those things wouls have to happen for the Elder Wand to become unbeatable; if they are not, then the Elder Wand is just like any other, and the power would only be limited to its user's abilities.

Yeah, that´s how I understood it as well. Except that Malfoy vs Dumble wasn´t a fair fight at all. Dumbledore was weak and didn´t do anything to stop Malfoy from disarming him. Unless the fact that he died shortly afterwards has anything to do with it...

I didn't like the scene in the room of requirement, with Ginny hiding the potions book for example. In all honesty, even in the books their friendship seemed just as Harry described it, brother/sisterly. I guess that's hormones for you :p.

That reminds me, Harry remembers the tiara he used as a marker for the location of the potion book, and he figures out that tiara could be Ravenclaw's Diadem. I wonder how the film will handle that, will Harry just come across the diadem by accident now?

I feel the same, but I just treat it as a separate story ( = never happened) but still respect it since JK wrote it early on before the conception of Deathly Hallows. It's like an early draft of her work and never altered whatsoever from what I read. Props to her for providing us some of the raw materials.

Nonetheless, if you read it, it literally feels like a fanfiction and a very bad one at that. But still a nice addition lol.


To me, Deathly Hallows ended when Harry went back to the dormitory tower and to his four-poster bed for a well earned sleep. The future is a mystery and I like it like that.

In all honesty, even in the books their friendship seemed just as Harry described it, brother/sisterly. I guess that's hormones for you :p.

That reminds me, Harry remembers the tiara he used as a marker for the location of the potion book, and he figures out that tiara could be Ravenclaw's Diadem. I wonder how the film will handle that, will Harry just come across the diadem by accident now?

They added it for the movie Harry and Krum will dance with Hermione instead of Ron like in the book. It'll work out well on-screen I think because it'll show Ron's jealously and give a valid reason for him to leave. :D

Oh you're talking about the wedding? So Harry and Hermione dance, which fuels Ron's jealousy during the locket scene? I like it, and it will [hopefully] work well.

Why is it that the unforgivables seem perfectly acceptable during the war? I mean Harry tries to use them and how do the likes of Molly kill off Bella, what spell would kill other than the AK? :confused: I mean, I get the impression that the Unforgivables aren't used because regualar witches/wizards are better than that, more moral etc. AK is murder, Crucio is torture and then there's the other one that controls.

The new Ministry headquarters look amazing and it's nice to see Umbridge back again. I love the scene with the the eerie patronis charm and ofcourse the dementors and Thestrals are also in play.

I'm going to cry at the end if I hear this during the epilogue:

YSb7mOk_UvU

Imagine this scene to it:

King's cross station on Platform 9 3/4. Harry and Ginny arrive with their family. Their sons are fighting, the younger son approaches Harry.

Albus: But Dad, what if I don't get into Griffindor?

Harry: Well, When I was younger I just asked the sorting hat.

He smiles at his son as Ron and Hermione come through the barrier with their children. Hermione is crying and kisses each child on the head as they join up with Harry's to board the train. They look across and see Draco and his sun who smugly smiles and turns his nose up at them and walks on. Ron glances a rolled eyed look at Harry. Albus walks over and gives Harry one final hug. Harry leans in close and whispers to him.

Harry: Don't worry about what house you get into, remember you were named after two great Headmasters, one from Griffindore the other from Slytherin.

Albus: But da...

Harry: Shhh, The trains about to leave, goodbye, Albus Severus.

Ron Pecks Hermione's cheek and Ginny, Ron, Hermione and Harry stand next to one another as there is a final shot of each other their faces as they cry and wave at the screen and the film pans out to the sky as the Hogwarts express drives out of the station and we see a montage of it arriving at Hogwarts and finally a shot across the black lake to a newly rebuilt Hogwarts with Gold and Red flags bellowing in the wind.

It still got a 12A in the UK maybe because the UK is more strict with ratings so i guess HBP got PG because the US was less strict and the sixth movie epic parts were badly executed so i see your point. But still that ain't no excuse for a PG.

Writing about the Harry Potter universe doesn't necessarily need to include Harry or even Ron and Hermione, but looking into the lives of characters, such as Luna (;p).

She did write a short prequel about them. Available to read on her website years ago:

The speeding motorcycle took the sharp corner so fast in the darkness that both policemen in the pursuing car shouted,”Whoa!” Sergeant Fisher slammed his large foot on the brake, thinking that the boy who was riding pillion was sure to be flung under his wheels; however, the motorbike made the turn without seating either of its riders, and with a wink of its red tail lights, vanished up the narrow side street.

“We’ve got ‘em now!” cried PC Anderson excitedly. “That’s a dead end!”

Leaning hard on the steering wheel and crashing his gears, Fisher scraped half the paint off the flank of the car as he forced it up the alleyway in pursuit.There in the headlights sat their quarry, stationary at last after a quarter of an hour’s chase. The two riders were trapped between a towering brick wall and the police car, which was now crawling towards them like some growling luminous-eyes predator.

There was so little space between the car doors and the walls of the alley that Fisher and Anderson had difficulty extricating themselves from the vehicle. It injured their dignity to have to inch, crab-like,towards the miscreants. Fisher dragged his generous belly along the wall,tearing buttons off his shirt as he went, and finally snapping off the wing mirror with his backside.

“Get off the bike!” he bellowed at the smirking youths, who sat basking in the flashing blue light as though enjoying it.

They did as they were told, finally pulling free from the broken wing mirror, Fisher glared at them. They seemed to be in their late teens. The one who had been driving had long black hair, his insolent good looks reminded Fisher unpleasantly of his daughter’s guitar-playing, layabout boyfriend. The second boy also had black hair, though his was short and stuck up in all directions; he wore glasses and a broad grin. Both were dressed in t-shirts emblazoned with a large golden bird; the emblem, no doubt, of some deafening, tuneless rock band.

“No helmet!” Fisher yelled, pointing from one uncovered head to the other. “Exceeding the speed limit by-by a considerable amount!” (In fact, the speed registered had been greater than Fisher was prepared to accept that any motorcycle could travel.) “Failure to stop for the police!”

“We’d have loved to stop for a chat,” said the boy in glasses,”only we were trying-”

“Don’t get smart-you two are in a heap of trouble!” snarled Anderson. “Names!”

“Names?” repeated the long-haired driver.”Er-Well, let’s see. There’s Wilberforce…Bathsheba…Elvendork…”

“And what’s nice about that one is, you can use it for a boy OR a girl,” said the boy in glasses.

“Oh, our names, did you mean?” asked the first, as Anderson spluttered with rage.”You should’ve said! This here is James Potter, and I’m Sirius Black!”

“Things’ll be seriously black for you in a minute, you cheek little-”

But neither James nor Sirius was paying attention. They were suddenly as alert as gundogs, staying past Fisher and Anderson, over the roof of the police car, at the dark mouth of the alley. Then, with identical, fluid movements, they reached into their back pockets.

For the space of a heartbeat both policemen imagined guns gleaming at them, but a second later they saw that the motorcyclists had drawn nothing more than-

“Drumsticks?” jeered Anderson. “Right pair of jokers, aren’t you? Right, we’re arresting you on a charge of–”

But Anderson never got to name the charge. James and Sirius had shouted something incomprehensible, and the beams from the headlights had moved.

The policemen wheeled around, then staggered backwards. Three men were flying-actually flying- up the alley on broomsticks-and at the same moment,the police car was rearing up on its back wheels.

Fisher’s knee bucked; as he sat down hard; Anderson tripped over Fisher’s legs and fell on top of him, as flump-bang-crunch- they heard the men on brooms slam into the suspended car and fall, apparently insensible, to the ground, while broken bits of broomstick clattered down around them.

The motorbike had roared into life again. His mouth hanging open, Fisher mustered the strength to look back at the two teenagers.

“Thanks very much!” called Sirius over the throb of the engine.”We owe you one!”

“Yeah, nice meeting you!” said James. “And don’t forget: Elvendork! It’s unisex!”

There was an earth-shaking crash, and Fisher and Anderson threw their arms around each other in fright; their car had just fallen back to the ground. Now it was the motorcycle’s turn to rear. Before the policemen’s disbelieving eyes, it took off into thin air: James and Sirius zoomed away into the night sky, their tail light twinkling behind them like a vanishing ruby.

HBP didnt seem to me like they toned down any of the dark or mature content from the book to the movie adaptation; maybe Dumbeldores death wasnt as exciting as the books, but i didnt think it was terrible.

they could still get away with a true DH adaptation, and it still be a PG rated film.

Great/Bad new depending on what your looking at it like. But it's been confirmed that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is no longer going to be a 3D feature but 2D instead! :D

For Immediate Release

Statement from Warner Bros. regarding “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1:”

Warner Bros Pictures has made the decision to release “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” in 2D, in both conventional and IMAX theaters, as we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey, and to that end, we are releasing our film day-and-date on November 19, 2010 as planned. We, in alignment with our filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that our audiences enjoy the consummate “Harry Potter” experience.

Producer David Heyman said, “For 10 years, we have worked alongside Alan Horn and the studio, whose priority has always been to preserve the integrity of Jo Rowling’s books as we have adapted them to the screen, and this decision reflects that commitment.”

Director David Yates continued, “This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first.”

As scheduled, on July 15, 2011, we will deliver to conventional and IMAX theaters our final installment of the film franchise, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” in both 2D and 3D formats.

Plus in another interview another Death Eater speaks of more of his editted/cut scenes:

It was all a bit of a shock and they pruned down my torture scenes where I beat up Rupert, call him ginger and stamp on him. It’s going to be great, there is loads going on and then there is the second film which is going to be absolutely spectacular!

He switched sides when he found out how Voldemort had interpreted the profecy, so indeed for selfish reasons. He is a jerk, that I can´t disagree with. :p
But I love the development of him throughout the series. He is about the only character that you really hate when you read the first book and feel sympathy for when you finish the last one. His fate touched me more than Dumbledore´s.

He was a poor teacher. Harry learns more about Potions in a few months from Snape's scribbles in his own school textbook than he ever does from Snape himself in 5 years. Which just goes to show that in spite of knowing his material, Snape was terrible at imparting it to others, i.e. teaching, which is the job he was paid to do.

Also, he showed blatant favouritism towards Slytherin, and he treated all non-Slytherin students like crap (he was even worse to Neville than to Harry).

I don't dislike the movie character, but I do think that they made her too stereotypically new-agey-granola-girl. The book Luna is just an oddball (a very nice oddball, no doubt), but the movie Luna comes off as some sort of 'wise woman' (especially in the scene with the Thestrals in OotP).

Not at all. I don't blame them for not cramming every single details in the books since they have their own limitation, which is the time limit.

I feel that the movies are great as they are, as long as they deliver most of the integral and important parts from the books.

Let's take for example, Dobby's role being replaced by Neville in Goblet of Fire. It would have been much more complex and time consuming to explain why was he in Hogwarts after being freed from elf-slavery, and if he's available in the movie, they would have to introduce Winky (as it's pointless just to make Dobby show up like a cameo just to help Harry and didn't add up to the story), and then they have to include Winky's crime and all, and it will further more complicate the story. Not only does the replacement by Neville cut things short and simple (since he's Harry's friend and Harry can completely trust him), it can also help gives Neville more screen time.

Does the change of characters really change or affect the main plot at all? Nope. Cedric still died, and the Dark Lord was reborn-ed again, and the fake Moody was unmasked. Some things just can't be included in the films (for e.g. instance like Peeves the Poltergeist) as it will further complicate and deviate too far from the story telling they wish to go for the movies, so that audiences who didn't read/follow the books can enjoy it as well.

How far does it have to go before it bothers you? :p
When the death eaters destroyed the weaslies' home? When Harry made Ginny hide the book somewhere while he closed his eyes? When Harry and the gang ued magic outside hogwarts? Neville doing dobbies scenes? When they are using magic in public.. on the ROAD! :p
God, so many examples, so little time..

Sorry, but I also think it's fine with small changes.. But HP, especially the sixth film changes EVERYTHING, which will lead to this movie having tons of differences.

This did bother me a lot actually (although it was Ginny who told Harry to hide the bok and to close his eyes). I mean how on earth is Harry meant to remember where 'he' hid the book when he looks for Ravenclaw's diadem now? A small thing maybe and maybe the director found a different way to do it.

But I agree with Shark Blade, there are things, such as Neville replacing Dobby, though slightly annoying to us fans, there is legitimate reasons to do it that way, as with other changes or things left out. Film producers and directors have to consider the time span of the film and how certain things effect the main plot. As long as the main plot still makes sense, some changes aren't such a huge deal. We love these things in the books, but you simply can't have everything in the books be 100% portrayed in the films, it just wouldn't be practical.

Samples (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00494M52O/) from the OST can be listened to on Amazon now!
Sounds pretty good I say! "Harry and Ginny" especially gave me chills, and I like how dark "Snape to Malfoy Manor" is. :D I also like the sort of "heist movie" sound to "Ministry of Magic"

You bring up good points, but they are making 2 films out of the seventh, are they not? They should have done it with the fourth, and sixth. Those films were complete abomonations, compared to the book, imo.
Also, if only the main parts are included, then Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a good adaption too, right?
Because they were being "time efficient" in the prior films, they will have tons of more explaining to do in this, except if they change everything here too, of course.

Woah! From those samples this is possibly going to be the best HP Soundtrack of the series. But where is Hedwigs theme!?

silver_wolf
27-10-10, 00:19
I know, I really liked Nicholas Hooper's work with the last two, but this one sounds great. And I think Hedwig's Theme is in there, they probably just didn't include it in the samples because they want to show off the new stuff.
Or, and I think this would be cool, maybe we don't hear the theme until the end of the second part, for a final time when it's all over.
...
I just made myself sad. :(

Here is my point of view:

Making a two-parter movies should be treated cautiously. If we look at the demographic of the audience, not all of them are the fans, we should also consider the little children and the casual movie goers that doesn't really get into the books and just in it for the thrill ride.

Now if the studio decided to make HP4 part 1 and HP4 part2, HP 5 part 1, HP 5 part 2,etc...it will endanger the franchise from being overexpose - too much screening time on the cinema, and it could also resulting moviegoers getting tired of HP. It's too much and too little. Once they finished HP 4 part 1, they need to wait 6 moths/1 year for the second part which could really water down the whole experience and excitement if done separately.

Deathly Hallows on the other hand is a different approach - it will be the end of an all time best selling movie franchise, and the studio is giving the fans their last bow with a special two parter. Since it is the finale, I feel that they can really avoid the risk of overexposure here. People will really crowd the cinema for the last time in two parts. Also, it will hopefully please the fans more since they have more time limit and cram more details from the book.

If you're aware, even great films like Lord of the Rings were done in one movie for each volume of the books. Again, I believe it is to avoid from overexposure, and preventing the public from getting tired of them. Too much of a good thing is always bad for you. ;) *eye twinkle*

Anyway i heard Dobby's Farewell soundtrack it sounds pretty good though not as good as Cedric's and Dumbledore's but still pretty good. ;) :D And i hefta agree with Sharkblade about waiting too long in between parts for the 4th 5th and 6th movies if they decided to do 2 parts of those movies. So that's why they only did 1 part for those movies. Even though lots of stuff was cut from the book in the 4th and 5th films i still liked them because they were epic. The 6th movie wasn't so good IMO because it didn't have enough serious violence in it and had too much comedy in it the only good parts of the 6th movie was the cave scene and dumbledore's death scene and tribute and the part where snape leads the death eaters out of the castle. Other than that it seems pretty pointless to me.

27-10-10, 16:30
Well not a lot of action takes place in the 6th book. Really they had all the action scenes in the movie, they even added a few.

Well the epic part of the 6th book they omitted from the film was the battle scene at hogwarts after dumbledore's death.

That's exactly why they did it. And because of what's been before. The end of HP4 and HP5 included fights against the Death Eaters, and so HP6 was toned down in order to help ramp up tension by the end of the final film.

I'm a stickler for things they left out of the film, but on this instance I was surprised to not mind, because they atmosphere that oozed throughout the entire scenes the times the DE's were present in Hogwarts, was brilliant, I think.

Okay, on the soundtracks page, WHY is there a soundtrack called "Hermione's Parents"?
Oh, looks like I stepped into a debate :p Okay, then, how does *possibly* adding Hermione's parents to the movies make 'em better?

I prefer the books, I don't like seeing them cut, copied, pasted and modified in the movies, but I like the movies if I consider them as this whole other thing, and avoid comparing it with the book

EDIT: I loved the Bathilda Bagshot Soundtrack!

Presumably it's to play up the sadness leading to the sexually tensioned teenage cheer up dance between Hermione and Harry. :D
