Which Dumbledore?
Richard Harris or Michael Gambon


Uh, hard one. Harris had that look of the greatest wizard in the world, but he still had some simple, funny part, like the Dumbledore from books. I also liked his beard more, it's white and long (and full of secrets :p).

I got used to Gambon, and I love him in HBP. I wasn't so sure if I like the new Dumby or not until HPB. He was perfect there, he represented the book Dumbledore amazingly.

I still have this in my HP file. :ton:

Ian McKellen could be perfect too. I think Gandalf and Dumbledore are really too similar though. Especially Gandalf the white. :p

I loved Michael Gambon's Dumbledore in POA he was eccentric and mysterious and a little bit mental just like in the books. He nailed the book Dumbledore. Richard Harris was good too albiet a bit old his voice wasn't how I imagined Dumbledore's it was much too weak and shaky compared to Gambon. :)

Reading the books before the movies as a bed time story made me imagine Dumbledore like Merlin with midnight blue and silver robes, he reminded me of Santa Claus in the movie though. :o

^Dumbledore clearly explains to Harry, that Harry became a horcrux the night LV tried to kill him as a baby.

When Harry is poisoned by the basilisk venom, Harry doesn't 'die'/fall into unconsciousness as Fawkes heals him before that happens, so I guess the part of him that is the horcrux is still alive.

A horcrux is destroyed only when the vessel containing it is destroyed beyond repair. Harry was the 'vessel', and he was not destroyed - rather he was healed by the only antidote against basilisk venom, i.e. phoenix tears. So the horcrux survived. Harry's blood has no connection to the horcrux within him.

The way i understood it a horcrux in a person or animal works differently to that of an inanimate object. Because the horcrux is a part of the soul, and there is already a soul in the person animal, they have to die for that piece of a soul to be released. Making he horcrux more vulnerable as it is easier to destroy. That's why Harry didn't actually die, the curse LV cast on him killed his own soul but left harry's or part of it wihin his body which let him return to life. Either because it was a foreign in harry's body, it was the bit that died first. That's why in my opinion LV. Never intentionally made more than one animate horcrux.

^I agree with that. Even Nagini has to die by Neville's sword buckling action for the horcrux to be destroyed. I was thinking earlier though, that if Harry's horcrux died after Harry died by Voldy's curse, why didn't Nagini survive as well? :confused:

Maybe the actual decapitation kill both of them. I mean, if Harry's head was decapitated, he won't survive as well I reckon. :p It doesn't work like magic I suppose.

Exactly, Voldemort's curse attacks the soul, not the body presumable as in GoF when the Riddle's deaths are being described they show no signes of any injury, internal nor external. Thus the soul of the host and the part of Voldemort's soul are damaged but the host not, letting harry return to life. Where as when Neville decaptitated Nagini he irreparably harmed her body, but there may have been protection of her that stops any physical harm other than that can kill a horcrux, like the sword. As when Hermoine trys to use a curse that would physically damage her in Godrics Hollow, it doesn't work and rebounds. It also explains why Harry was also able to unconiciously or conciously, inexplicably protect himself from Voldemort a few times, the horcrux within him protecting itself from physical harm. The irony, Voldemort being defeated by a part of his own soul.

So it appears when voldemort struck his killing curse at harry voldemort's soul was destroyed because the curse rebounded on harry protecting him because of the horcrux in his soul. Voldemort didn't wanna make harry a horcrux because he wouldn't be able to die with 1 strike of the killing curse. I still don't get how the horcrux in harry was destroyed because you need basilisk tooth or gryffindor sword to destroy it and voldemort's curse destroyed his own horcrux. It's probably that harry's soul horcrux was destroyed because nagini was killed i think voldemort put a horcrux in nagini that split the other half going in harry's soul.

the rebounding curse was because harry was the true master of the elder wand. and that just got me thinking.. i always wondered why the curse didn't rebound in the forest. i know that harry was able to come back because of the blood link between him and voldy but could it be that it was the elder wand all along, acting in favor of harry and projecting itself towards voldemort's soul instead and then at the battle, with no more horcrux to destroy, it rebounded completely to voldemort?:confused:

Because if the forest Harry willingly dies, he lets Voldemort attack him to kill the horcrux inside of him, he doesn't resist or fight, as he does later on in the great hall.

Also it may be important to mention that the elder wand seems to be the only wand capable of deflecting the avada kavavra curse, showing that it's more powerful than any other wand, which also explains why it is able to destroy a horcrux in a person.

What annoyed me in Chamber of Secrets is this:

"Your bird may have blinded the Basilisk, but it can still....HEAR you!"

And I was like, wtf seriously? I feel that they wanted to make it more dramatic when the Basilisk slithered up near Harry in the tunnel (which he later threw a rock to distract the monster away). But come on, even that sounded stupid. Snakes can hardly hear you, they have very sensitive SMELL instinct. They should've stick to the book. :rolleyes:

Oh heck no, Daniel with alcohol? :( Thank God he's against it now.

http://omg.yahoo.com/news/harry-potters-radcliffe-i-became-so-reliant-on-alcohol/66444

LONDON (Reuters) - Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he was so worried about his drinking that he vowed to give it up and has become teetotal.

The 21-year-old actor told GQ magazine that his life went off the rails for a time when he turned 18 and was filming "Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince."

"I became so reliant on (alcohol) to enjoy stuff," he said in an interview to be published in GQ's August edition. "There were a few years there when I was just so enamored with the idea of living some sort of famous person's lifestyle that really isn't suited to me."

Radcliffe says he was fortunate that the paparazzi never captured his worst behavior.

"I really got away with that because there were many instances when a shot like that could have been taken," he added.

Radcliffe, who says he has not touched a drop of alcohol since August last year, admitted that he would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks but that just doesn't work for him.

"I do that very unsuccessfully. I'd just rather sit at home and read, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh," he added. "There's no shame in enjoying the quiet life."

Radcliffe was just nine when he was picked to star in JK Rowling's Harry Potter series and, according to British press reports, has amassed a fortune of around 45 million pounds ($72 million)

The final Potter film, "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part II" has its premiere in London on Thursday and will hit the theatres on July 15.

Not necessarily 'Dark' magic - just because it deals with magic, witchcraft and sorcery in general.

I was reading online that there some christian group thinks that Harry Potter series is evil and it involes witchcraft....I was like WTF!!!! Harry Potter is fantasy thing, it not real. It not meant to taken seriously. The nerve of some people.

Says the religion that once burned and drowned people for suspected witch craft and today hushes up child molestation accusitions and discriminates wildly completely contradicting the whole 'love and forgive' message the founder of the religion preached... Yeah I think I'll stick with Harry Potter thanks.

8 movies is quite a bit for a series i think it holds the record for a movie series unless I'm mistaken. What is the record holder for most number of movies in a series that didn't count reboots as total amount like for example halloween was rebooted so only 8 movies not 10 because of the 2 new ones?

The direction is spot on, the art direction is even more so, the music is beautiful, it was the funniest Hp until that point, the time-turner sequence is put together pretty flawlessly..

Aside from the fact they took out too many little details from the book, made a bald Werewolf and .. that.. final shot (agreeably ew) , the film is top notch.

Saddest moment of the films so far, imo. Which is so bizarre - I couldn't have cared less about Cedric, and Amos was barely in the story. It's just done so beautifully and tragically, so see a father wailing over his son - it was more the theme of what was happening rather than the characters which caught me there. It chokes me up every time I see it and it's been the only part of the series to nearly make me cry.

Unlike Dumbledore's death. Unfortunately. That made my cry into the pages, but not over the film. But then again, Dobby's death upset me more on screen than it did in the book!

Between the books and the films, they're an emotional minefield!

I agree with Cedric's death being sad as much as I would regard 4 weaker than the others that was a really well acted scene.

Dumbledore's death was handled really badly in the movie, it should have been a lot simpler and more emotional like it was in the book, not shot through that huge metal globe thing that detracts from the whole experience as you're trying to see what the hell is going on, and to not even give him a funeral scene was rubbish too.

I wish they hadn't done that either. I guess they just wanted us to feel even more connected to Harry by limiting what we saw to his viewpoint for that moment, and hoping we'd feel as emotionally affected as Harry himself.

.. Didn't quite work.

Exactly, but I think that was the fatal floor in the way it was handled, that moment wasn't about Harry, but Dumbledore's sacrifice and the bigger picture which they didn't get accross in that scene.

Oh my Good almighty God you guys! I 'm just back from the screening it was bloody amazing the best Potter yet but you shouldn't go in expecting the book because it is a good bit altered to fit on screen but I didn't mind that much. It is the most emotional yet and packed full of effects and nearly every magical creature from the series so far is back during the battle with the exception of house elves and Hippogriff's it really was a perfect end I teared up a fair few times and finally had a chance to breathe at the credits. If you want to ask me any questions feel free to also note that tomorrow I will be seeing the 3D version so I will comment on the conversion. :D

Yes it ends with the trio smiling. and waving goodbye to their kids and Draco and his son are also present and although Teddy was cast he is not in the movie at all. :p

Although that was not my favourite scene because there are alot of beautiful scenes in the movie but without spoiling any scenes the soundtrack is VERY nostalgic and there are quite a few instances you will here familiar themes play from all 7 movies! :)

So how was Snape's death? Was it emotional?

I wouldn't say it was emotional just more like it was meant to be scary there is blood squirts on the window and his throat gets slit but it is more to show off the power and desperation of Voldemort the scene were Harry finds him after is very emotional because Snape is crying out his memories and tells Harry to take them.

anyway do you guys know about this? i got this from a journal of a deviantART HP group that i watched. i doubt it's really that popular but sounds like a very nice idea.
Dear Potterfans,

A movement is spreading across the internet, and you've probably heard of it. When the credits on the 8th movie begin to roll, everyone who has loved Harry Potter over the years will raise their wands in the air and say "Mischief Managed"

I politely and hopefully ask that you will post this final send off to Harry Potter in your group Blog. We want to make this a reality, so please tell all of your members to make this happen.


with much love and thanks,

^ That is a nice idea.

I have to add that this movie is not for the faint hearted because this movie is gory! :cln:

Some scenes really push the rating.

One death scene was shocking in particular because it is unexpected and graphic! :D

touchthesky
12-07-11, 17:05
^which deaths that :o?

Also, any deaths in the book that don't happen on screen? Or any deaths onscreen that aren't in the book?

Finally, does the theme tune play at the end?

Omg I cannot wait!

Tonyrobinson
12-07-11, 17:48
It was a death onscreen that wasn't in the book, Lavender Brown! She gets her neck bitten by Greyback and you can see the exposed muscle underneath. Apart from her I don't recall any other death of main characters on screen we see most of the dead bodies in the Great Hall on stretchers and the tables and see Snape die but the attack from Nagini is seen from a distance.

The final song in the film to play was Leaving Hogwarts, it was perfect! :D

Hey I may just add I've never been a fan of the cinematography in the majority of these movies but this by far was visually stunning, they picked a cold greyish blue ghostly looking palete for Hogwarts that gives us a spooky castle style as opposed to the brown warm one they usually have. Then they have very lit up dark orange flames and various colours of spells that lend itself so well to the overall look, they really nailed the look because there are thousands of Dementors guarding Hogwarts so it's really blusterry looking. :)

Really want to see the eight film if it's supposed to be better, too.

Tonyrobinson
12-07-11, 18:06
It is really dark but saying that the light moments are light too akin to the first two movies you won't be disappointed though the movie has three gory stand out scenes numerous deaths and everyone in the battle is covered in cuts but there isn't really specific focus on the blood or battle but it is evidently there just not detailed.

12-07-11, 18:11
I really do want to see the big battle that all my Harry Potter obsessed friends are excited about, so I think I'll probably end up going with them!

Tonyrobinson
12-07-11, 18:18
I mean the battle is good but it mainly takes place from the trio's point of view so they don't fight much during it but what there is in it is awesome and it is sort of interspersed between other scenes so it speeds then slows at points but that is a good thing! :D

You will understand more what I mean when watching because it still is about finding Horcruxes and Hallows. ;)

Actually, it was never made clear whether she survived the battle or not. Hermione checked her in the book and she was 'stirring feebly', but neither the book, nor Rowling, has confirmed that she lives or dies. Considering that had to happen with Rowling's blessing, I'd say she was meant to die in the book.

I really didn't like the scene after Voldemort's death. I expected people to come and cheer and happiness mixed with sadness because of the deaths and all that, like in the book.

The best scene for me was Prince's tale. It was just soooooo sad, I cried like crazy and it was so emotional to see Snape so vulnerable. The scene you described was very heart breaking too. :(

What was your least favorite scene? :D

(Marianna agrees with me, njahaha! :p)

Soul
13-07-11, 11:08
I watched and it was....OK...

The first half was absolutely amazing and combined the epic atmosphere in the last film with the magic atmosphere of the first films, but the end was rather disappointing for me...

If I had to rank the films my top 3 would be:

1st: DH Part 1
2nd: Azkaban
3rd: Goblet of Fire

DH Part 2 would be between Order of Phoenix and Half Blood Prince :)


My favourite scene was right at the very beginning of the film, where we got to see hogwarts and Snape as the new leader :tmb: Really epic

My least favourite scene was probably all the talking at the start before they got to Gringotts.

FYI guys I'm back from the 3D screening now too it was actually really good it is kinda not needed but the effects looked cool with it but it still hasn't converted me into a 3D lover.

Marianna12
13-07-11, 11:28
Marianna here :p


I usually don't like 3D movies, but this one was really nice, so I think it's worth seeing it in 3D.

Going to the premiere was an amazing experience, even better than I expected! I saw fans dressed in cloaks or wearing HP t-shirts everywhere, the cinema staff was wearing HP t-shirts as well, there were many posters, we found some parchment in our seats which was something like a Hogwarts graduation diploma, the cinema was full, everyone clapped at the beginning of the movie and at the nice parts...generally, the atmosphere was amazing!

Prince's tale was exactly like I imagined it, it was just EPIC and really sad. Snape's death was much more violent than in the book, but it was done perfectly, and this scene is proof that Alan Rickman is probably the best actor in the movies.
The Resurrection Stone part was really touching as well, especially if you've read the books and know how Harry feels. I was glad they didn't leave out the important lines like "Until the very end" from the movie.
Fred, Lupin and Tonks dying was reaaaaaaally sad too. Bring tissues. :p
The Ron and Hermione kiss was just amazing and SO them, they're the cutest couple ever <3 The 19 years later scene was okay, but I expected it to be more bittersweet.

All in all, just EPIC

Just came back after seeing HP and the Movie was ok, thus i give it a 8/10 oh and the 3D Sucks, it just made the Movie Darker with the Glasses On.

I still dont get what is so Special about the 3 Legendary Magical Items, since the Cloak is Special and yet Nobody makes an Effort about it.

The Effects was Great and i expected More Life in the Movie and the Acting like LOTR.

After Voldemort Killed Harry, we see Him in Heaven or where ever, yet we see the Little Voldemort Creature lying under a Floating Bed, i was expecting a Harry/Voldemort Morph Creature Battle and he Kills the Last Horocrux, yet Nothing happened, so what was the point of that thing.

The Death of Voldemort was Boring and Stupid, i expected him to Die in a more Vibrant Death like a Flash of Power going out of him with his Followers Screaming in Pain, even the Death of the Scorpion King in the Mummy 2 where is Face was like a Dark Cloud was More Spectacular then Voldy turning into Confetti.

What is the Deal with the All so Powerful Wand when Harry breaks it, i expected some Magical Flash with a Spark or something, but he just broke it like its some Twig.

Ok Seriously, can the Trio and Malfoy just aswell be 12 Years Old and have Children, then by the time they are 18 their Children are 13 the Same Half Size as them. I mean come on, where are the Grown Up look a like Actors.

You would expect the Movie to go out with a Bang, but it was so Amateurishly made, that it felt half dead.

Tonyrobinson
13-07-11, 16:56

TBH, I would be all for a Harry Potter TV show. I think that it would have worked better as a tv series than a movie franchise; not that I am displeased with the movies, they are mostly all great.

Although I was thinking along the lines of 30 minute episodes that represents each chapter in the books, but that would be many episodes :pi:

Rivendell
14-07-11, 19:51
The great thing is they could make the series last as long as the actual terms.
They could get some 11yo kids who could've grown older with the series, as they did with the films, but it would feel more involving because:
1. You can fit so much more into a series
2. It feels longer, so you get to know the characters even better
3. You feel more connected after seeing them each week, than you do by seeing them every year and a half.

I hope they do it in the future, though I can't see it happening for decades.
