Something been bugging me in the Hallows movies..

Harry rescued Luna away from Malfoy Mansion. And then when he went to Aberforth, - Neville led him back to Hogwarts to meet the other Dumbledore's Army. And lo and behold, there's Luna as well standing beside Cho Chang! What the hell is she doing back at school? Isn't it dangerous? :eek: She would've been safe staying at the seaside house. Unless you think she'd rather go battle with her friends, how would she know it'll be at Hogwarts? Or is this is all plot conveniences just to get her in the action as well?

I can't remember much of the details from the book. Anyone could enlighten me? Thanks!

OMG, this is gonna be my favourite thread *_*.

Shark Blade: Since I haven't read the book, but from the movie, I was surprised that she was back in Hogwarts. But then I remembered there was a gab between the Malfoy Manor and Harry, Ron and Hermione's return to Hogwarts, it makes kinda sense that she's there. She's a member of D's Army etc.

Harry (referring to Ron): You're not STILL mad at him are you?
Hermione: I'm always mad at him.

Makes me chuckle. :D

Other than that - NO! Ron and Hermione are not a good couple. :p

If he'd been attractive / sexy or had a genuinely funny personality, or was kind or considerate, then maybe. But he is none of things!

Even in the book I was always hoping that H&H would get together whilst he was off sulking somewhere. Then maybe, he'd have had to grow up. His character never changed throughout the entire 7 books. :eek:

LOl, I don't know why I care, but I still think Hermione and Harry should have gotten together. Oh well, it's only a story... lol :D

He insisted there were lots of clues, but I never noticed any of them.

I disagree, I think it was Harry and Ginny all along; it was a way to make Harry a part of the family, and so he would have a family, plus if Ron didn't get Hermione who would he get?

Harry find out Sirius is his Godfather. Plus the book sets up a lot of characters and lore that would be important in the future. It really is the expositional piece of the entire series and is the only one not to feature an appearance by Voldemort out of the 7.

If you watched the movies closely, he hesitated when he joined Voldemort in HP7/2. He didn't want to kill Dumbledore. And he didn't but, tried. He did it all, that his family can survive. I think that's a reason for sympahty.

+ He also lied to Bellatrix about Harry's identity in HP7/1

Anyway, what they have done is offer Year7part1 and Year7part2 seperately, and when you add up the cost for both, it is actually cheaper (or the same price depending on store) to buy the new 8 disk complete series box set ;)

I've seen all the movies now :ohn:
I thought the ending should've been grander, Voldermort's ultimate demise seemed a bit of a damp squib after the build up.

Also, in Half Blood Prince, there's a scene in a library where Harry is talking to Hermione as she's walking around and returning books to their shelves. She holds the books up and they float out of her hands, returning themselves to their rightful place. This prompts the question; why is she walking around the library at all? Why not just chuck the books up in the air and let the books sort themselves out?

Y'see, JK Rowling, you never thought it through did you? Or you never intended your story to be popular with people over the age of seven, so you thought you'd get away with such a glaring flaw in logic. Or a detail from the book explaining why Hermione can't do that wasn't shown in the film :pi::p

I'd go on, every film is full of holes like that, I'm sure you lot will say I'm moaning though. But I'm really not. They're silly films, yes, but an entertaining form of silly, something my friends and I have had great fun with tutting & shaking our heads at over the years. And if that's what made us enjoy the films, what's really wrong with that? We still enjoyed them, just not in the same way you guys do.

Yeah, her demise was a 'blink and you'll miss it' moment. Considering she was responsible for that other guy's death in OotP (I think it was that film), it all seemed a little too quick and understated.

And I'm still outraged at Alan Rickman's fate. Talk about injustice :mad:

I'm glad you mentioned that here, you said the same in the Movie thread, but I didn't want to hijack it to talk about that.

Like LL says above, when did Rowling write the Deathly Hallows where Snape dies? I'm sure Rickman had no input on that whatsoever. Him tweaking what happens in the movie is completely different.

I thought Rickman only worked with the death for the film (mentioning harry has his mothers eyes) rather than simply saying "look at me" like in the book. Did he have any put on the writing of the original book?

@ LL & Spong:
That's what I have to ask from my friend. (She's Rickman/Snape obsessed).

I'm sure Rowling wrote the book on her own. As much as I know little about HP in comparison to you guys, I'm pretty sure Alan Rickman had no say in the matter. Snape's death was Rowling's doing, and it was a bad move in my opinion. He was a brilliant character :tmb:

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Rickman and the director worked with her on changing the scene. I even remember an interview somewhere that explained Rickman enjoying them moving the death from the shrieking shack to the boat house because of the romance behind the flowing water and reflecting glass. But dont quote me on this, I could be making this all up without realizing. :D

My friend said tho, that there was co-op working between Rickman and Rowling. That makes me believe very much, that it was the death scene. Also Rickman was the first one to know his characters fate.

And Spong, in movie thread you 'moaned' about why Ron didn't die instead of few people. IIRC, my friend told me too that Rowling intented to kill Ron.

Yeah, I think your friends right theres an hour long conversation with JK and Daniel on the HP 7.2 Blu ray where she says she told Alan Rickman when he started the movies that Snape loved Lily so I'm sure he could well have been involved somehow, also she said that she was going to kill of Ron halfway through writing the series. :vlol:

Jo Rowling often works closely with the director on the film sets. It's possible she and Alan Rickman worked together in revising Snape's death during filming. I'm fairly certain he had no say whilst she was writing the book. Jo told Alan about Snape's death shortly after finishing the book, if I remember correctly from reading an interview (don't ask me to find it, don't have a clue).

Alan Rickman worked on Snape's fate with Rowling. It was Rickman's idea how Snape ended. Of course, with Rowling.

I really doubt that Alan Rickman swayed JK Rowling to kill Snape (I mean, either she does or doesnt kill the character). She probably contemplated killing each and every character at some point :p

He pretty much HAD to die, it was the only way for him to end as a hero.

I trust her. She follows Alan Rickman's doings like a paparazzi.
And I have never said, that I am telling the right. I am speculating from our discussion from November, which is 2 months old now. I can ask her, if she has, proof. You don't have to believe her, but I do.

EDIT/ And I think it went like Rai on previous page suggested and I am sure that's what my friend meant. I can still ask her.

Which is what should've happened to Harry himself. He's the better example of someone twiddling their thumbs with nothing to do after Voldermort died. That scene immediately after Voldermort's death, when Harry's wondering aimlessly through the hall and looking at all the casualties, perfectly underlines how pointless his existence was from that point on. Everyone ignores him, no one says a word, they're too busy tending to the people that mattered. Harry's purpose was fulfilled, I think it would've been a much better ending if he'd died.

I can relate to that :p

Tonyrobinson
02-01-12, 16:28
The thing is that Harry, Snape and Voldemort are the parallels of the Peverell brothers in the book and thats how it was intended to be written but doesn't translate well in the movie, the last battle is more epic in the book with everyone joining them in the Great Hall waiting for Harry to kill Voldemort and cheering him on and I don't think we see the aftermath but Harry goes out to have a quiet moment with Ron and Hermione if memory serves me correct, but in the movie he is battling alone and he then goes in after it and nobody pays him any attention.

Also, in the movie the fact that Ron and Hermione already know Harry has to die really suggested that they all just were waiting around for Harry to end it all hence the reception in the end and didn't care compared to the book. So going back to the Peverell brothers link Voldemort was driven mad by power, Snape loved a women who he could never had and Harry departed death as equals when he gives himself up I think it's written clearer in the book that on screen but it was always going to be hard to adapt regardless, Voldemort doesn't even know they are hunting horcruxes in the book but in the movie he does.

I think it was just hard to adapt in the end having that much backstory and emphasis to throw out and still keep the essence. :)

IMO, it was good that Harry didn't die. Finally he had a chance to have a normal (wizardy) life; Have a wife and children and not to worry about Dark Lords.

Not silly Channel 5, silly viewers. It was billed as a 'Drama charting the life of Harry potter creator J.K Rowling'. As soon as you see the word 'drama' you know that not everything will be entirely factual. It's still worth watching though.

Also, I do not beilieve Alan Rickman worked with Jo to change his character's fate either. I know the character of Snape got 'a repreive' as Rowling said but I doubt Rickman had any hand in that. There again, she does seem to be on good terms with other actors like David Radcliff, Jason Isaacs and Julie Walters so you never know...

I hated that part in the movie. In the book is totally different:

One shivering second of silence, the shock of the moment suspend: and then the tumult broke around Harry as the screams and the cheers and the roars of the watchers rent the air. The fierce new sun dazzled the windows as they thundered toward him, and the first to reach him were Ron and Hermione, and it was their arms that were wrapped around him, their incomprehensible shouts that deafened him. Then Ginny, Neville, and Luna were there, and then all the Weasleys and Hagrid, and Kingsley and McGonagall and Flitwick and Spout, and Harry could not hear a word that anyone was shouting, nor tell whose hands were seizing him, pulling him, trying to hug some part of him, hundreds of them pressing in, all of them determined to touch the Boy Who Lived, the reason it was over at last—

It goes on, but the quote is big enough already. Harry IS their hero. I loved both parts of the movie, but I was disappointed at the end. It was lame and boring and kinda dull. I wanted the book ending. :pi:

Welcome! :D I checked just in case and I was right: The series has also gathered adult fans, leading to the release of two editions of each Harry Potter book, identical in text but with one edition's cover artwork aimed at children and the other aimed at adults.

Have fun reading and let us know which cover will you buy. I like them both. :cln:

I'll probably just get the adult ones for my collection. I've got all of them in Dutch already, but I couldn't wait for the translation of HBP and DH, so I got them in English (with adult covers for some reason). :p
But now I want to read all of them in English, because original = better. :D

Actually the JK Rowling film wasn't too bad at all on retrospect once I seen it through to the end, some bits were really good, I loved how she see's the world transform in her mind to the places from the books, like when the building turns into Gringotts and the banker turns into a Goblin. :)

I have both English and American version. I grew up reading the English version, it's just that I bought the American version for the different (better) covers and nice drawings inside.

But somehow when I'm reading the American version..I don't know if it's the font style or size, or the changes of words to Americanize them....it feels like I'm reading a tame/kiddish version. Weird.

Vinkula
03-01-12, 00:31
I'd like to read Potter books in English, because I don't like some of the translations in Finnish version. Like some of the characters names are translated (stupidly) like:

Luna Lovegood - Luna Lovekiva (kiva = nice / good)
Horace Slughorn - Horatio Kuhnusarvio (Kuhnusarvio isn't anywhere near slug and horn)

But some of them are accurate like Fenrir Greyback is Fenrir Harmaaselkä (grey = harmaa, back = selkä). But I just hate the translations... And some of the characters are like they are in English version (Harry is Harry Potter, Hermione is Hermione Granger and Ron is Ron Weasley, Snape is Severus Kalkaros (Snape = Kalkaros)). Why they did then translate the some of the characters, if not all ? >_>

But back to the business, why I haven't read them in English > I'd read quite slowly and I wouldn't understand all of the words, if there were some difficult ones.. D:

The Dursleys are my guardians
They are so mean and evil
If only I had some magic powers
surely i could make them tremble

4 Privet Drive
Is where I lay my head
I wish that I could go
To another place instead

I am Harry Potter
I am Harry Potter

Today I got a letter
In the mail
My uncle took it right away from me
But more and more kept coming here
The letters jammed the living room
So they took me to a hotel
And on my eleventh birthday
I finally saw the writing on the card
And it said

I'm a wizard
I am wizard (I am a wizard)
It said (I am a wizard)
I am a wizard
Oh I am Harry Potter
