Ah, isn't it beautiful? The Collector's Edition of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

QbyQ04HYmCs

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*

Fair enough. Then what about the small details that are actually wrong compared to the books?
For example when Dumbledore is struck dumb because he didn't expect Voldemort to have 7 horcruxes, or that he said "They can be anything". A complete contradiction compared to the books..

A complete contradiction compared to the books..Like I said, those are minor details in terms of movie story telling. The movies are based on the books, not exactly a copy of the books. Those little things doesn't really bother me much as I treated them as two different mediums, but hey, I understand why some fans are bothered by this. :)


Tony: I'm not gonna listen to them!! *clog ears* :whi: I'll wait for the movies as I don't want to be spoiled.

I have bought every single movie soundtracks of HP, and to think there's only two of them left in this series for me to look forward to.. Ah, all good things must come to an end one day. *raises goblet with a twinkle in his eye* ;)

When you read the books, do you keep the image you imagined them to be, or do you see the actors who play the characters?

i guess for Hagrid, Dumbeldore, Hermoine, Ron, Snape, etc, I see the actors; but only cuz they seem so like how i imagined them to (with influences from the various coverart/chapter pics depicting the characters)

except for Harry adn Professor Umbridge, they look more like how i imagined them from teh books, or how HP looks on the front covers.

I saw the first movie before reading the books, so I was set for most of the characters, Sirius looked almost exactly as I pictured him, Umbridge too mostly, although her voice was much higher than I imagined. Cornilius fudge looked very different though, so did Proffesor Trelawney, she was much more cartoony than I expected, I think Emma Thompson did a great job.

robm_2007
15-11-10, 00:23
Was Umbridge so young in the books, adn did she wear pink? (as seen in the movies)

i cant remember. Anyways, i didnt like the Umbridge in teh movies, Imelda Staunton wasnt given the proper look, IMO. i imagined her to be at least 60, greyish hair, and be more toad-like. she was great when she slapped HP, though. that was wonderful.

i actually imagined my English teacher from HS would be the perfect Professor Umbridge. she was about late fifties, grey hair, about 4'9", and 170 pounds; and she looked toad-like. she was so quick with demeaning remarks and swift with her ability to write detentions, lol.

I already had a very clear image of most characters in my mind before the movies. The only ones that look just like I imagined them are McGonagal, Hagrid and Molly.

I always thought he'd have short red hair and really lean body. I dunno, I just felt like he's the sort that will spring up and beat Malfoy whenever he mention how poor his family is.

I imagined Umbridge looks like a female Jabba the Hut! :eek: lmao she'll always looks like she's about to swallow a fly.

Hermione is pretty close, although in the movies it seems like her hair is stylized and permed. I always thought she should have more natural wavy/curly bushy brown hair as her character is the studious type, not a runway model. But I'm not complaining, she looks pretty like that. :p

He' not saying that :p. He's saying when he reads the books he pictures the actors [from the films] that play the character in the book. IE: When he reads he sees Daniel Radcliffe as Harry.

I read the first 4 books after watching HP and the PS film, so this sort of applies to me for the trio but as I read the other books before their films, I get a mixture of my imagined version and the film ones.

I thought that was a screen of the opening scene, with Snape going all cower-before-my-favour-with-the-Dark-Lord.
:p
Anyway, in that scene Voldy motions Snape to sit at his right while he sends Yaxley off somewhere else. So I highly doubt Yaxley was his right-hand-man(iac).

Spoiler ahead>>>


I felt that the trio were in constant danger every second, like anything dangerous can swoop in on them and attack. I haven't touch the 7th book for a very long time but basically most of the important scenes are there. I'm very pleased how the film turns out.

I was gutted at first that they cut the Dursley's separation scene, but I figured that they'll fit it into the second part of the movie, making it a flashback, coinciding with the whole Snape-Lily-Petunia relationship story. I'm sure they'll handle it with great care.

5/5 stars.

Can't wait for July next year!

Lucky you the movie doesn't release til friday where i live. :( And because my father has work on friday i can't see it til saturday and they won't do an early show time due to kids being in school. :(It's only a few days peeves, it'll go by like mere heartbeats. :D


One scene was very sad though..... :(Is it Dobby's death? I have a great swell of pride when he said 'Dobby has no master. Dobby is a free elf!' to Bellatrix/Narcissa.

I'm not surprised that there is very little of snape in the movie when you take into account that most of the movie consists of Harry Ron and Hermione being on the run, i'm basing my reply on the way things happen in the book i haven't seen the movie yet.

What's everyone's favourite HP movie mine is Prisoner of Azkaban, my least favourite is Half Blood Prince that movie focused too much on the romance sub plot at the expense of the main story and a certain character's death was handled better in the book than it was in the movie, the character's death had more of an emotional impact in the book than it did in the movie.

19-11-10, 05:48
@DragonSlayer: Yeah, My fave is HP3 and least fave was HP6....God, they totally massacred the plot in favour of romance!

But oh well, HPDH made up for it, it was surprisingly wonderful. They handled Dobby's death scene veery well, and I thought Rupert Grint especially was fabulous. Fred and George made me laugh, and dammit, everytime I looked at one of the characters I would be like Oh, damn, she/he's gonna die....
Hedwig was amazing, no Stan, though. Mad-eye was also awesome, and since I'm on a movie-high now, I'll tell you guys the rest later xp

Managed to catch an earlier showing and I loved it. I didn't however like how they tamed down some of the horrific type scenes such as the Bathilda one I was hoping for Nagini to burst out of her mouth or neck like in the book but they just made her seem like an animagus or something! :mad:

19-11-10, 14:58
This was easily my favorite out of all the movies. Everything was so true to the book, and what they cut out wasn't really all that necessary. Dan, Emma, and Rupert have all become really good actors, and they carry the movie where it would normally drag, I think. I really like how dark and serious it's gotten. Some scenes, like the death of the Muggle Studies teacher and Hermione's torture were quite disturbing, and I really liked how the horcrux was done. Very creepy.

Just got back from my second viewing. I realized that whenever Dobby's death scene is on show, there will be the sounds of sniff among the audience. Guess they took it bad.

I have a feeling that the Dursley separation scene won't be in the second part. When they show Dudley and Uncle Vernon packing things into the car, Dudley spoke 'why are we leaving dad?', and Uncle Vernon replied 'Because we can't stay here!'. :( Guess that's the last time we'll see them. It's just my hunch though. Oh well, I could always go back to the books.

My top3 favorite HP movies in order so far:
1. Deathly Hallows Part 1
2. Half Blood Prince
3. Prisoner of Azkaban

Shut it, the camping scenes are integral. They allow for character development and get across the point that Harry really is lost without Dumbledore. If you found this movie actually boring, I can't imagine why you saw it in the first place.

Sorry but the Movie just seemed lagged and dragged, what Better and more Interesting Parts from the Book could've been in the Movie.

Howcome the Trio dident realize the Invisibility Cloak is part of the Deathly Hallows Brothers in witch i would assume the Son was James Potter and then Harry got the Cloak.

I hope Part 2 will Kick Up the Action abit.

I see in the Beginning of the Movie that Two of the Harry Clones flew Two of those Invisible Horse Creatures, again since the 5th Movie No one reacted on a strange feeling that He is flying in the Air. Dident Ron and Hermoine get Scared in the 5th Book, because in the Movie its like they knew what they were Flying on.

The bit about the Cloak really isn't all that important, but I'm sure they'll talk more about it in the next one, since they didn't really have time to talk about the Hallows.
Of course there will be more action in the next one.

19-11-10, 23:07
To be honest, I quite liked this one. I was a bit annoyed with the fact that they were going to do 2 parts, but after seeing the movie I was glad that they stuck by the book much more than a few of the other movies, thus the explanation for the second part - aside from the obvious they are trying to make more money as well, of course. Lol

But yes, I cracked up quite a lot during a few of the scenes and the acting was top notch. Most of everything was like I had imagined while reading the book..

It's just kind of sad that the next movie shall be the last one.

I grew up with this series. When the first movie was released and Harry was 11, I was 11. And so on and so forth, so I pretty much grew up along side them with the series - might be a worthless train of thought, but I thought it was interesting nonetheless. Lol

I can't wait to see all the action from the upcoming movie tying in with the latter half of the book. It should be just a good, if not the best. Or at least I'll hope. Lol

Should they have made the Previous Books into 2 Movies aswell, would we then knew some of the Characters that was Never Menchioned or Introduced be Understandible, the reason why they got Cramped into this Movie. :confused:

I Never read the Books, thats why Half the New Characters and the Story of this Movie got me Confused as if im supposed to Understand what is going on. :oYou know the solution now don't you? Try and read the books. :)

Although, I think it's a bit weird. My family and friends doesn't read the books and they get the movies just fine. What part of the movie that you did not get?

Should they have made the Previous Books into 2 Movies aswell, would we then knew some of the Characters that was Never Menchioned or Introduced be Understandible, the reason why they got Cramped into this Movie. :confused:No, they shouldn't make the previous movies a two parter like Deathly Hallows. Kindly refer to my previous post regarding this troublesome nature:

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*

Were Most of these New Characters that was Never in the Previous Movies in the Books, i dont even remember their Names. :confused:

The Lord of the Rings Movies i Understood and i get what is going on, even with the Extended Scenes, but what got me Angry after Actually Reading the Books, is that they sort of torn Pages out and put it into a Tumbling Machine and took a Page with their eyes Closed and decided lets put this Part from Book 1 into the Third Movie, now im Loving the Books More then the Movies. :p

Like which ones? The Snatchers? The people in the ministry? Minor characters like that are mentioned a few times throughout the series, but in the films, in DH in particular, it doesn't matter if you know their names and back-story, all that matters is the heat of the moment: Are they with, or against Harry?
Black and White. Friend or Enemy?

But of course, it's not always like that. Take Xenophilius for example. He tried to hand Harry to Voldemort, but then you find out that Voldemort had taken Luna.
The characters that matter ARE explained.

One thing I don't get is why Neville is so angry in this movie.

I mean he's totally lost it; really, really ****ed off. :eek:

He was looking outside the window of Hogwarts train looking gloomy. The next, several Death Eaters came onboard and he was like "Oi losers! He's not here."

As heroic and rebellious as it seems, does he have a death wish? He could get Avada Kedavra for simply jerking off a Death Eater.

I think that was totally out of character for Neville. He's usually the quiet, bright and polite type, not the stupid one that rattles the cages and provoking people to kill him. :rolleyes:

Your thoughts?

ShadyCroft
20-11-10, 13:47
^but didnt that change in the 7th book ? after the whole Ministry thing and all the things that happened during the summer, the news about Harry being the Chosen One, and Death Eaters all over the place looking for him, Neville became more rebellious.

When Harry, Ron and Hermion got together with him in Dumbledore's brother's place, remember what he told them about the Carrows ? how he, Luna and Ginny were trouble makers and never followed the Carrows ? He's changed !

Neville changes a lot in the 7th book... I mean, he's the one that kills Nagini, so already that is just a massive departure from his earlier self. Plus, as Lara's Home and Shady said, Neville gets put through hell in the last book, so it's only natural that you're going to want to stop it at the end. Neville had the chance and the tools (Eventually) to do so.
Plus, I wouldn't imagine he has much respect for the Death Eaters... They did torture his mother and father, and then himself.

Made me think even more than the book, that Harry and Hermione should have gotten together. It would have made a better story AND Hermonie and Ron? No way ever.

My fav bits were the tent dance, the "mudblood" bit was chilling, the 3 of them changing for the Ministry - those characters were good, the doe, and going to Godric's Hollow.

Rai
20-11-10, 20:32
^ The Chemistry between Hermione and Harry was electric especially after the tent dance, you can understand Ron's jealousy, but in a way, as his bond with Hermione seems minimal a Hr/H pairing seems more believable. Then again, it's kind of nice that Ron and Hermione's relationship was more slow to begin with.

I really like the actors and actress that portrayed them in the Ministry, they all seemed very fitting to each of the trio, especially Ron. And I like how awkward Harry was the entire time. :DIt was definitely a highlight of the film. I loved the bit where Ron was saying, "What am I going to do, my wife is all on her own" etc. And Harry pointed out to him that he didn't have a wife. Really made me laugh. :D

That was terrible for poor harry potter. I didn't like how he got beat up all the time. But when he went to hogwarts at age 11 he made new friends.

isnt JK Rowling such a *****? i mean, she goes out of her way to make Harry Potter's life so miserable with all of his beatings and years of neglect and she kills his parents and practically everyone he ever loved? :mad:

HP is suppose to be a children's story! It should be filled with puppies, rainbows, and grandma's home-made cookies! Not racism, various kinds of voodoo and magic, murder, tragedy, and the deaths of pet birds and dwarves who act as slaves!

I did like the idea of deaths in the franchise as well as dark times but when harry was little whenever he got beaten up i felt bad for him. And i don't agree with the rainbows etc. children's story.

Godric's Hollow was the most touching part of the film for me. Even more so than Dobby biting the dust. It was in the book too, though.

"Dobby never wanted to kill! Only maim, or seriously injure!"

I loved that part with Dobby, "Dobby is a free elf" :D, free forever now :(.

The humour in the film was just brilliant and well placed imo, even when the odds are down and things look bad, there is always room for humour - and love. That's a good message, and JKR told that so well. I'm glad the film did that justice.

Just back, and wow, it was perfection! :tmb:

Every scene was how I imagined it to look like from the books, the pacing of the film was great, acting was just amazing, especially Emma's! It was extremely dark and mature, showing the danger they are in, just completely different from any Harry Potter movie so far! I know, the book was also dark, but seeing it in film just showed me how dark it really was! Of course, not saying it in a bad way, it was excellent to be honest!

I badly want to go see it again though to make up my mind if it's better than POA or not! :p But it's definitely up there as my favourite HP movie! :D

Definitely, it didn't feel forced so to make people forget the darkness of the film, it just fitted in really well!

Favourite scenes - Fight with the death eaters with the 7 Potters, breaking into the Ministry, and of course the dance scene, I was close to crying at that! :( :p

Oh, and it was nothing, but I liked the way it went all dark for a few seconds when changing into a new scene! :)

Watched it yesterday, it was amazing! :cln: I loved it, especially the atmosphere. They did a great job since the book is long and it's hard to include everything in the movie.

I checked few pages and I saw you don't scream SPOILERS!! and add everything to white so I will do the same and be quiet about it. :p

When Bellatrix tortured Hermione.. Wow! That was scary, Hermione was fantastic in that screaming, you could really feel her pain. Dobby was so funny, his sentences are priceless! :vlol: It was so touching when he passed away but I didn't cry, which is a miracle. :pi: I'll probably cry a river in the second part. :whi:
Malfoy's basement was HUGE! I don't know if I am the only one but in my imagination it was really tiny. :p Too bad they didn't show Krum at the marriage party, I like him. :cln:
I also think they should explain why Death Eaters followed Harry, Ron and Hermione in that coffee shop. If you read the books you know of course, but some people only watch movies. Well if you realize the Eaters come after Lovegood says "Lord Voldemort" then okay, but I am sure I wouldn't notice that. That's the only thing that "bothered" me.

I have religiously bought each Harry Potter film as they came out on DVD as they were each in their own right brilliant, but this one, I just dont know.

When you boil down what we saw, there was very little action compaired to previous films. The 'tent in the wilderness' scenes went on and on forever and the battles were condensed down to around ten minutes.

Am I the only one who thinks they should have made the last book in just one film, just like the other prevoius films, rather than milk it for the money as two seperate films ?

Alfonso Cuarón did absolutely great work for PoA. It's very artistic (what happens to the flowers when the Dementors come near, the tree that changes with every season, I love those things), funny, scary... it's just right. I would not say he ruined it, not at all. Even a small detail like the effect of the Expelliarmus spell was done so much better. It did what it should do, disarm someone. Not blast them 10 feet away. :confused:
And speaking of Dementors, they were so much better than in OoTP. They ruined them in OoTP. Probably to avoid comparison with The Lord of the Rings, but come on, they looked ridiculous.

And the music of John Williams is fantastic as usual. When I think of the HP movies I hear that music, it's just epic.

I don't say this often, but I think you really have poor taste. Sorry. :o

Rivendell
27-11-10, 22:08
^ I agree with what you said about Alfonso. I absolutely loved his artistic direction in PoA. :tmb:

However, it's usually not his fault that people who don't like PoA hate on the film. Don't like the film? Blame the director. That's the usual thing. But it's the screen writer who comes up with the bare bones of the film. The script. The story. It's the adaption, and the amount of things they missed out that seems to bug most fans - and that isn't down to Alfonso. It's Steve Kloves who's written every film.

But, I've got to say - I can't see much difference between the Dementors in PoA and OotP, and I wasn't keen on either of them. They're just not how I picture them.
You're right too though, I think the difference is to avoid similarity between them and the Ringwraiths from The Lord of the Rings. But they're described very similarly in the books. They should've stuck to that.

The Dementor's Kiss should have stayed the way it was in the book. Something slow, gentle, forceful, borderline sensual, and downright unnerving and disturbing. I'll never forget the description of one 'lovingly' prising the hands apart in order to clamp its jaw over the face of its victim. Not the physically contact-less fly-by suckathon that they do in the films.

Dudley was curled up on the ground, his arms clamped over his face. A second Dementor was crouching low over him, gripping his wrists in its slimy hands, prising them slowly, almost lovingly apart, lowering its hooded head towards Dudley's face as though about to kiss him.

On the subject of Dementors - I know this isn't how they're represented in either the books or the films, but I love this interpretation that someone put on DeviantArt. :cln:

You got a good point there about the writer. When you judge one of the movies by which parts were in/out/changed, then you can't blame it on the director (or praise the director for it). But you can like or dislike the overall 'vibe' of the movie I suppose.
The Order of the Phoenix is my least favourite movie, I watched it again the other day and I know now that it's mainly because of the story. The book has so many pages, it was inevitable that a lot had to be cut. I was disappointed when I saw how short the part in the Ministry of Magic was, there were supposed to be all those weird other rooms. :(
But anyway, I blamed it on the director and therefore I was worried about the Half-blood Prince, but I loved it and I can't wait to see the 7th movie :D (still haven't seen it :().

That Dementor picture is seriously awesome! :eek:
Really weird, with that horse face, lol. XD

In my imagination they look exactly like those Ringwraiths (thanks for mentioning that name, totally forgot what they were called :p), but their feet don't show. They don't walk but they don't fly either (like in the movies). They glide, slowly and creepy. And I agree about the kiss, it's fascinating, disgusting and scary at the same time. I don't know why they changed that, maybe because it would be hard to see what was happening (the soul being sucked out). :o

Something entirely different though. I watched The Goblet of Fire a while ago and I was wondering, what the hell did Madam Maxime eat out of Hagrid's beard? So gross! >_<

To the above posts you forgot to mention about the Dementors in DH :p I don't see no difference either in the dementors of PoA OotP and DH. The dementors appeared quite a bit in PoA. But the PoA movie for me was boring because it didn't have any sad emotional deaths in it it wasn't intense enough for me Voldemort didn't appear in that movie and 1492 pictures was in charge.

I just saw the film yesterday, it was amazing! Probably my favourite film so far, and one of the more faithful to the original book, even if they did have to leave out stuff which you wouldn't understand had you not read the book. They didn't sacrifice too much of the story for action sequences (aside from at the beginning), and I actually quite liked how they made the scene with Bathilda much darker.

I'm seeing the movie for a second time tonight. :yah: It was great!

My favourite sequence has to be the Ministry of Magic. I love how the Polyjuiced actors got the Trio's body language and mannerisms down to a T!

Xenophilius was great, and so were the new Death Eaters and the Snatchers. I was expecting to see more of Greyback, though. It was weird how little screentime he got compared to the promotion. He even had his own poster and everything. :confused:

For once I was impressed with Emma Watson's acting. She used to overact in previous films but was just right in this one.

My only real complaint is the fact that they kept stuff in (the mirror shard and the taboo) and didn't bother exlaining them for the non-readers.

^ I agree with what you said about Alfonso. I absolutely loved his artistic direction in PoA. :tmb:

However, it's usually not his fault that people who don't like PoA hate on the film. Don't like the film? Blame the director. That's the usual thing. But it's the screen writer who comes up with the bare bones of the film. The script. The story. It's the adaption, and the amount of things they missed out that seems to bug most fans - and that isn't down to Alfonso. It's Steve Kloves who's written every film.

Finally, someone said this! I don't get why people keep blaming the directors. I'm sick of hearing about how David Yates "ruined" Harry Potter.

The Tale of the Three Brothers scene was so amazing! It was probably my favourite scene in the film. It was beautiful.

For some reason PoA movie seemed old fashion to me meaning that it had ghost horse scenes and lots of stuff from the old days such as paintings knights opera singers and the music was old fashion to me too that's mainly why PoA is my least favorite potter film. And HBP had too much happiness in it and comedy, love scenes.

I saw it 2 nights ago. I loved it, yes, but I didn't feel this HP excitement I felt in previous films. Plus, the Ron-being-jealous thing was poorly done, IMO because it was all in like one scene, out of the sudden. If they'd have done it in a more progressive way it would have been more believable and a lot less wtf.

Also, I imagined the climax of the movie to be a lot LOT more intense than it actually was.

I too imagined Malfoy Manor and the wand being taken to be a bit more exciting, but overall I thought HP7P1 was pretty good. :D

The snake scene however, that was absolutely brilliant!:tmb: The whole Christmas segment was great.

We got this email today from my school chancellor. It made me happy:
Hello, everyone. Thanks for all the replies to my request for possible temporary names for the new residence hall. I've received the suggestion of "Hogwarts" many times, so please don't feel the need to send me that one any more at this point.

Best wishes,


Joe
