I've heard it's in, byt it's very brief, because apparently the whole MoM fight has been cut down a lot.:(

Hey, I've just watched the Advance Guard clip.
Lupin's not there.That's just stupid.He was supposed to be there because he was the only one Harry knew and trusted (Moody doesn't really count).
Can you imagine that:

Tonks:Wotcher Harry!We've come to take you away! It doesn't matter that only one among us you know turned out to be a Death Eater in disguise last year,you've got to trust us!
Harry: Mmm...Ok!
:vlol:

:vlol: Oh dear!

I'm not watching any more clips til the film now, I can't wait to see it!

Just saw this on wiki!
An article by MTV about bonus scenes in films shown at the end of the credits mentioned one such bonus scene at the end of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) in which Gilderoy Lockhart, played by Kenneth Branagh, is seen promoting his new book in Diagon Alley. Earlier in the film, Lockhart performed a charm which made him lose his memory. The article notes that the scene will "**** off die-hard fans of the book" because "it's noncanonical," adding that Lockhart "makes a poignant and surprise reappearance in Order of the Phoenix[,] still without his memory." It was unclear whether this was a reference only to the book version of Order of the Phoenix, where Harry, Ron and Hermione encounter Lockhart, mentally insane, at St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, or news that Branagh would make an appearance in the film version as well.[105] At the U.S. premiere of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), series producer David Heyman said that Lockhart was in the first draft of the script, but there has been no announcement since whether he was retained through revisions or if Branagh would return.

I forgot about the 'after credits' bit of HP2, I would't mind seeing another one :D

I think Emma's wonderful! She's really hot, too. I loved the picture, in GoF, when she came down the stairs in her dress. :yah: *drools*


She's so beautiful! :gki:

Oh no,m I have no problems with her looks, shes hot as hell.

Her acting annoys me to death. She acts overly dramatic most of the time when it's not nessecary.
I mean back in the PoA film, just watching the scene with the dementor on the train, Emma Watson just randomly says "Ouch Ron that's my foot" in such a weird way.

Anyways, Helena Bonham Carter is amamamamazing!

I don't know if this was discussed here before, but I just thought of something from HBP: When Harry and Dumbledore are flying towards the castle and the dark mark, Dumbledore 'erases' (in the lack of better word) the magic that surrounds Hogwarts, but never gets the chance to create it again. If Hogwarts opens next year, what protection will it have?
Do you think McGonagall could be able to do it?

About the Heir of Gryffindor thing ... I vaguely remember that there was such a rumour floating about before the release of OotP (the book, that is :p), but JKR denied it later. Not really sure though. :o
I hope Gryffindor has absolutely nothing to do with Harry, and has no role whatsoever in DH ... there's really no point in dragging up the founders, and the idea of the present conflict between Harry and Voldy being some sort of reflection of the conflict between their respective Great-great-great-however-many-times-grandfathers is really ridiculous. :rolleyes: Not to mention that Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin started out as best friends - hardly a reflection of Harry and Voldy's relationship. ;)

I think that as Harry And Dumbledore are flying, the charms that Dumbledore mutters lower the defences just to let them pass. The spells immediately come back into force once they are through the perimeter and in the castle precincts. This is why Snape, Draco and the Death Eaters have to run to the castle gates before they can flee magically.

Well, it IS Hollywood Reporter after all...and it doesn't appear they know much about Harry Potter in general. HR has given good reviews to some pretty stupid movies in the past, so I think we're safe. Anyway, their review DOES, for the most part, state what happened in the book, which means they at least kept close to the storyline.

The guy working in the cinema with his hot cup of coffee, standing over the machine that plays the film :mis: :ton:

I'm currently re-reading OotP, I'd forgotten how much I like it - currently up to the bit after they've all agreed to take part in Harry's lessons in the Hog's Head.

Quick question: The shifty characters in that pub- do we ever find out who they are? I know the barman is Dumble's brother, but wasn't there something about the witch shrouded in a black veil who shifts suspiciously every once in a while? :confused:

I'm sure there's something about her - remind me IF we find out, but don't tell me who it is if we do ;) I'm enjoying remembering bits I'd forgotten :D

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/film/reviews/article_display.jsp?rid=9447

Well, Hollywood Reporter's main problem with the movie seems to be the story and the "lack of magic". I suppose they expected more action and special effects or something more childish and less moody.

Well, the bar smelled of goats and we all know that Aberforth has a history with goats and I think JKR said something about it in an interview. And I think that the guy all wrapped up in bandages was Mundungus, wasn't it?
Well...Not exactly.
Don't highlight if you don't want to get spoiled>>> Mundungus was the witch in the veil and the one in the bandages was Willy Widdershins (or something like that) , who got away with jinxing some Muggle toilets by spitting to Umbridge everything about the meeting in the Hog's Head.

I've just finished re-reading OotP (for the 5th time!:o), too. It's definitely my favourite -so far. :D
:vlol: The only book I don't know by heart, by now, is HBP.

One of the people in the pub in Dung(I think he was the witch), and then there was the person that told Umbridge.

Rivendell
02-07-07, 22:15
I can't wait to reach HBP again - I still reckon it's my fave, even though I've not read it in over a year and a half.

It's just dark, brooding, gritty, really magical, goes into lots of detail about Voldy's past, finally starts addressing the tension between Hermione and Ron, and Harry starts to get more rebellious and ... darker even.. in testing some of the HBP's spells. The fight with Malfoy in the toilet is great - Sectumsempra - slashes, blood, screaming.. fear of murder, freaking out.. then there's the whole Cave part which I loved So much, and the final fights.

I can't wait for the film, I really can't :jmp:

HBP has really grown on me and there are bits of it I just love: Voldemort's past, the Horcruxes, Snape, the Cave and everything that happens afterwards, the Greyback storyline ( I hope he dies the most gruesome and painful way in DH - preferably caused by Remus)...

I have some issues with it, though. Too much Draco Malfoy (he's just boring, I hated all the Malfoy-obsession parts), the romance didn't really bother me but it felt too much at times, and I think it feels more like a prologue to DH rather than a satisfying stand-alone book. The first time I read it I felt that something was missing.

Something indecent about goats - that's all I remember :D
To quote Albus:
My own brother, Aberforth,was prosecuted for practicing inappropriate charms on a goat
Poor Aberforth - I wonder what he actually did? And I do hope we get to find out in DH. ;)

Another reason it'd be stupid would be because it goes against one of the basic principles of the series; blood doesn't matter.
True. But then again, even though that's one of the *official* themes of the series, you might notice that almost every important character is defined in terms of his/her relation to his/her family or to a particular family member. For example, how many times in the series have we heard that Harry is just like his father? And how many times are the Weasleys treated as if they were just one unit with nine parts, rather than nine separate individuals? Sirius too is defined by his family - in his case, by not being like the rest of the Blacks. As for the Gaunts ... well, isn't dear Tommy boy just a chip off the old block - that is, just as bigoted as his grandfather and uncle? And for heaven's sake, Harry was saved by his mother's sacrifice - by *blood* magic!
So however much the characters may go on about individual choices and the rest of it, the fact remains that in the actual working of the story, a character's family is far more likely to determine his destiny. It's a mixed message, to say the least, if not blatantly self-contradictory. :rolleyes:

Nice to see Emma's new hair =]

Anyways I'm not sure about that spoiler, I haven't read the book yet(Don't think anyone has).
BUT the other day I was downloading the entire series of the HP books as ebook versions to look back on some stuff of PoA since my sister borrowed my book, the RAR file came with Deathly Hollows, I took a peek at it. I'm not sure if I should read it or not since I don't know if it's fake.

But the first chapter title in the DH ebook is
(Possible)Spoiler: Secrets Unrevieled

^ Not sure about it though. Can anyone confirm this? If it is real, then well...good. I may or may not read it. Since I have my book preordered already. And besides I can't risk myself scrolling to the bottom of the ebook and ruin the whole ending for myself

Relax, that's probably a fanfiction called the "The Seventh Horcrux (http://www.phoenixsong.net/fanfiction/story/3517/)" - the first chapter is called "Secrets Unravelled". It's definitely not Deathly Hallows, though I have heard a lot of people claiming that it is. A friend of mine was firmly convinced that it was DH - she got it in the mail from another friend who claimed to know someone who had "hacked the book". :rolleyes: She tried to get me to read it, and out of curiosity, I took a peek at the first few lines - turns out, it was this fanfic, which I had finished reading just a few days ago. :D (Shark Blade posted a link to it on this thread a while ago.)

^^Wow...that was quite an interesting read. I only skimmed it, but it's really well-thought out. I wonder if Dudley really is the one who "manages to do magic quite late in life." It's a great theory, anyway. Though not such much the thing with Petunia making a deal with Dumbledore.

Of course those 'fine' people at MuggleNet would squash this theory in a second. Did anyone read their book, "What Will Happen In Harry Potter 7"? It was a waste of $14. Sure, it had some interesting bits in it, but they are very biased in what they present as a "comparative" book. For example, they discussed the theory(or THEIR theory) that Harry is a Horcrux. When they argued FOR the theory, they filled it with seemingly practical facts. But when they argued AGAINST the theory, it looked like it was written by a 9-year-old with no solid arguement at all. Bits of the book were quite interesting though. For example, they say that Wormtail must have been there on the night Harry was attacked(How else would Wormtail have Voldy's wand?). Overall, this book shows how big-headed MuggleNet has become(you just have to read the intro for that). I wouldn't really suggest it, unless you're bored and have nothing to do untill DH comes out(16 days!)

Agh! I just had a horrible dream! :eek:

I was watching OotP, and right at the end during the big fight - someone sort of picked up and threw Bellatrix through the veil. Then we saw what goes on behind there - these glowing balls of light with strandy-tentacly things dangling from them, drag them upwards through this misty stuff where the spirits of the dead basically rip the flesh off the person.
But- that didn't happen to Bella, one of the 'jellyfish' (they looked like them) grabbed her, and whispered into her ear something about why she shouldn't be here, then pushed her back out of the veil.
Of course, everyone was really surprised, but then she decided she'd rather go through the veil - so she forced her way past the jellyfish (who weren't keen on her being there to say the least) and eventually popped out through some wormhole where she started to swim across a swimming pool and climbed out - presumably in the muggle world - next to Seamus Finnigan.

The End.

Needless to say I was distraught, expecting everything from the book to happen, and instead getting that shocker!

You really think so? I've just watched the entire thing and I don't feel like anything has been spoiled. Just some parts about the last fighting scene, but those we're predictable.

It appears that at one point Harry is casting a spell without saying anything. I might be mistaken, but Harry isn't able to do that in OoTP is he? If I remember correctly they're being taught how to cast spells without saying them in their 6th year and I don't even know for sure if Harry is able to do it by the end of the book.

Just by the interpretation that Deathly = connected to death, Hallows = something sacred and revered/treasured highly.

From that, Horcruxes (Horcruxi?) is the only thing I can think of. JK said HP6 was really the 'first part' of the last book, and we've just been introduced to the Horcruxes, and we know Harry has to find the rest before taking on the Big V. :tmb:

Those in the UK, check out Jonathan Ross tonight - JK is on it!

An interview with JK Rowling is set to appear on the Jonathan Ross show which begins tonight at 10:35 on BBC One. The Telegraph has posted a preview of this interview (which was recorded yesterday), where they quote her as saying:

"Finishing the book is a relief. I can't think of anyone who could know how I felt. Actually finishing it was the most remarkable feeling I've ever had... [I felt] euphoria, devastated, when I finished one chapter near the end I absolutely howled, it had been planned for so long.

"I was in a hotel room on my own, sobbing my heart out. I downed half a bottle of champagne in one and went home with mascara all over my face. It was really tough."

We'll have a video of this interview online shortly after it airs, so stay tuned to MuggleNet tonight!

:( Gah, this sounds quite horrible! Maybe she really has killed Harry!

I know, I know - I've said I'd like it to happen, but to be honest I'm not expecting it to happen at all. Perhaps that's why it'd be a good end!

Doesn't really mean she killed him off. Besides, I don't think that only Harry's death would cause such a reaction, with so many characters.

Anyway, even if Harry does survive it wouldn't be an overly happy ending. I can't see Harry getting out of the war without being terribly traumatised or something like that. Especially if Ron or Hermione dies

And just as Angel said HP has been a huge part of her life for all these years. Naturally she'd feel pretty bad about that...Maybe she will consider a sequel/prequel...

Aye indeed, but I'm more suspicious about this 'One chapter 'near the end' that she seemed so upset about writing.

when I finished one chapter near the end I absolutely howled, it had been planned for so long.

"I was in a hotel room on my own, sobbing my heart out. I downed half a bottle of champagne in one and went home with mascara all over my face. It was really tough."

I assumed that dialogue was about the chapter near the end, not about finishing the book. But I suppose it could be just the culmination of the whole thing ending!

Bowie
06-07-07, 22:56
Has anyone considered that Horcruxes divide up a wizard's powers too? And maybe Voldemort did not know this, which would explain why he so willingly formed a Horcrux on Harry, not fearing how powerful Harry could become with some of Voldemort's powers being added to his run-of-the-mill genetic predisposition for wizardry thanks to his parents, and thinking that, yes, this boy has to die for him to die, which might not be sanctioned by the Ministry of Magic.

The point being, instead of the notion that Harry must destroy all Horcruxes -- including, eventually, himself -- to destroy Voldemort, he could instead destroy all the inanimate Horcruxes, but then give up his powers somehow so that Voldemort loses his too.

Isn't that really what Harry Potter is about? An insignificant unloved boy who suddenly finds out he's the most important and powerful person in the world? Wouldn't the greater sacrifice for him be to give up the magic that makes him so special?

I think Rowling may have deliberately engineered this lingering belief that Harry must die, but will shock us all in the very final moments when all he has to do is give up his powers to render Voldemort likewise powerless, a more profound and fitting conclusion to both characters.

One of them must kill the other, though? Surely Voldemort is weak enough, with all but one Horcrux of a soul remaining, for Harry to just push him off a cliff, or something?

I haven't read any of the books so this could be complete nonsense! What say you?

Bowie- that's a very interesting theory. Quite impressive for one who hasn't read the books :D

Although about giving up his powers - I'm pretty sure nothing like that has been done in HP, nor hinted that it's possible.. But who knows? It'd certainly be unexpected.

Mytly
07-07-07, 07:33
Nice theory, Bowie. Sounds a bit similar to this (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19436954/) guy's idea that Harry will end up a muggle. I hope that doesn't happen though! :yik:

The same article makes for a good meta case why Harry won't die - it would be terrible publicity for the remaining movies, not to mention future sales of the books. After all, why would anyone go to see a movie about a character that they already know is not going to get out of his situation alive? Or for that matter, bother reading seven books knowing the hero will die in the last one?

That's the idea anyway ... I just hope hope JKR was thinking along the same lines while writing DH. ;)

^ :confused: I thought she said she's never doing another again, and that there's the consideration of killing him off herself so that nobody else can write any more after her!
I am pretty sure she didn't say that she intended to kill him, just that she understood why any author would think that way.

In any case, even if she intends to kill him, that's a fairly ridiculous reason in her case, considering that thousands of people have already written millions of fanfics about HP, and aren't likely to stop doing so even after DH comes out - even if Harry dies in it. After all, there's always AU stories.

Somehow, I don't expect the books to have such a brutal end. For me, Harry Potter isn't that dramatic. I mean yes, there are deaths, murders, but there's also a big message of hope, friendship, family, love etc. What would be the message to the readers if the hero had to give up with his power, even for the greater good ? Couldn't it be seen like a little triumph for the bad side ?

There's already a big part of HP about sacrifice - not only Lily Evans' sacrifice, but also Dumbledore's, and I suspect something coming from the Malfoy family too (not sure about that last one).
So for me, this last book is really about the final conflict and who will win between good and evil. And I'm damn impatient...

Harry giving up his powers to kill Voldemort is a LOT less brutal than killing himself, I would have thought!

As for "good vs evil", I think that's the profound truth lots of people are forgetting: good people don't care about wielding power... Voldemort would do ANYTHING to save his powers (evil), whereas Harry would do ANYTHING to save people (good). (It's also politically relevant at the moment ;).)

It would also explain why she referred to writing about "that world" in the future, rather than writing about "Harry Potter" -- because Harry is no longer a wizard. The Heir of Gryffindor (Ron?), for instance, could make an intriguing future protagonist.

On Jonathon Ross though, she said maybe theres a chance in like 10 years she would return to the world. But its unlikely.

But 'returning to the world' doesn't mean returning to Harry. I guess we'll just have to wait for the book XD

You know what ? You could be right. :p I agree with that theory about good people and power. [b/w What does evil want ? Power ! --> quote from TRAOD Hand of Fate video].

But it was somehow already demonstrated in the very first book with the Philosopher Stone and the Mirror of Erised. The main question is IMO what message does JKR want to give to her readers ? In almost each of the previous books, the main message is given by a death. The importance to keep on fighting after Dumbledore's death; the importance of family protection after Sirius'; the importance of friendship and solidarity after Cedric's... and so on. So, what would be the ultimate message here ?

Anyone watched the 2 interviews on mugglenet?

http://mugglenet.com/app/news/full_story/1059

They were really fun(ny) to watch and it appears that more than 2 characters are going to die.

She's being asked: "Do you intend to ever write any more Harry Potter?"
Rowling also says: "I think Harry's story comes to quite a clear end".

That either means she's explained really well how his live will continue, or that he dies.

There was a one-hour special on A&E last night about OotP. Pitty I only managed to see the last 4 minutes of it. Did get to see a new scene though at the end...Don't know if it's on the internet- it's the scene where Profs. McG and Umbridge are having a bit of a row in the entrance hall...funny stuff. The special won't air again until the 12th. But there's not point in watching it then...because I will have already seen the movie.

I didn't realize just how close we are to the movie! I'm going to see it TOMORROW NIGHT! Anyone else?:jmp:

As it's only 2 weeks away, less even, maybe we should have a prediction on what will happen at the end of HP7.

I predict...

Harry lives.
Snape is the real villain, even more so than Voldemort.
Hermione dies and so does Mrs Weasley.
Harry is NOT a horcrux.
And... somehow or other, Gryffyndor saves the day.

:D

Anyone else?

Whoa, that'd definitely be a shocker - just because so many have been led to believe that Snape is really a goody. Or not a goody, just acting on Dumbledore's orders..

But you never know.. "Severus...Please!..." could really have been begging for him NOT to kill him!

He's got powers that seemingly rival or exceed anyone else's.

He's evil.

And, he was not only instrumental in killing Harry's parents, his actions (relaying the message from the prophecy) almost brought about the end of Voldemort. I think he's in it for himself.

Then again, I'm always wrong about these things. :D

09-07-07, 19:43
You haven't said your predictions... :p

Ok, but first bear in mind what I predict may not be what I want to happen ;)


Snape is working for the Order, the end of HBP tried to reinforce the image that he was evil - so to leave it like that would be predictable.
But now the idea that he's good and followed Dumbs' order to kill him to remain a spy has been made so predictable.. who knows? But I still think it's the most likely.

This way it creats more problems for Harry. IF Snape is working for the order, he's is still going to hate him - even more than ever, for killing AD, BUT how would Harry take the revelation that AD told him to do that? He wouldn't believe him, even with evidence I don't think it'll stop Harry from possibly trying to kill him.

Harry will be attacked by Fenrir Greyback, and Wormtail's life-debt will be paid in Wormtail killing the head werewolf with his silver hand.

Harry will live, Voldemort will die. Cliche, but I can't see it happening any other way.

If anyone lovable dies I think it'll be Ron, Molly or Arthur or perhaps Ginny. It'll be a really courageous death too, protecting someone. I really think it'll be a Weasley though!

Neville will have it out with Bellatrix, and probably conquer her. The hatred in him is probably enough for him to beat her, whereas the hate in her towards him wouldn't be as strong - for her it'd be sport.

My predictions:

-Ron lives,so does Hermione. And they will finally get together at Bill and Phlegm's wedding (where, incidentally, I'm sure there will be an attack).
-Oh, Noble-Wannabe Harry and Ginny get together, as well. I can't see Ginny being content with being the Damsel-in-distress waiting for the Hero for too long. (And Harry is dumb. You don't just dump a girl with six older brothers!)
-Voldemort dies.
-Snape is Good.
-I believe that Dumbledore believed Snape's remorse story because he also told him that Voldemort had decided to go after the Potters and not the Longbottoms.
-He's also a dead-man-walking. He dies saving Harry.
-Lupin LIVES (he'd better,or Jo is in for big trouble).(Obviously, that's just wishful thinking.)
-He also kicks Greyback's sorry butt!:mis:
-McGonagall is the real traitor!!! (I hope not!I like her!)
-Pettigrew repays his debt by giving Harry valuable info about the Horcruxes. Then he dies, as well, because he's a stinking double-crossing rat.
-Molly dies.
-One of the twins (:() and maybe Charlie dies.
-Neville dies a hero's death (:() after giving Trixie what she deserves (:D).
-Draco dies (:yah:).

I thought she was acting a bit suspiciously after DD's death. I was always a bit annoyed with her. Immediately after his death, she makes herself comfortable at his office, wants the school closed and dares to raises arguments against his wish to be buried at the school...:pi:
And her most suspicious behaviour was at the end of GoF. With the Dementor and Crouch.

I somewhat agree (and that's why I'm not totally convinced) but I think there are many interesting points.
The most intriguing point, IMO, is the contrast between Minerva and Snape.

I think Harry and Voldemort will die. The prophecy said neither one can live while the other die, something like that.(I'm just beginning to read OotP and currently finish the hearing.God I hate Fudge.


-Voldemort dies.Why of course.Or maybe he'll just perish or live as a parasite ever after.

-Snape is Good.Never suspected his loyalty ever.

-Lupin LIVES (he'd better,or Jo is in for big trouble).

-Pettigrew repays his debt by giving Harry valuable info about the Horcruxes. Then he dies, as well, because he's a stinking double-crossing rat.I hope he'll die with a "cheesy" grin on his face. Talk about irony.

-Molly dies.
-One of the twins (:() and maybe Charlie dies.Nope. Can't see that happening.

-Neville dies a hero's death (:() after giving Trixie what she deserves (:D).
-Draco dies (:yah:).No way. Neville is crucial to the prophecy as well, he's as important as Harry imo. And Draco will join Harry and his squad for a Final Battle against the Dark side.;)

Ah - he was, but the instant Voldemort attacked Harry then it became all about him. Neville was then as irrelevant as an ordinary passer by. Purely because Voldemort had 'marked Harry as his equal'.

It's all chatted about in the Lost Prophecy chapter, I was rereading it last night.

Just read that essay. I had read a similar one (http://www.mugglenet.com/editorials/editorials/edit-trumanl01.shtml) on Mugglenet a while ago too. But I'm not convinced by either one. The reasoning seems a little forced. I mean just because McGonagall has never saved Harry's life is hardly any reason to claim that she is evil. :rolleyes:
Oh, and wait a minute - she has saved his life. And there is definite proof in the same scene that she is on Dumbledore's side (and so is Snape), and they are both against Barty Crouch (and by extension, Voldemort). This is the scene in GoF when Dumbledore, McGonagall and Snape burst into Moody-Crouch's office just as he is about to kill Harry. See this bit:
"Stupefy!" There was a blinding flash of red light, and with a great splintering and crashing, the door of Moody's office was blasted apart - Moody was thrown backward onto the office floor. Harry, still staring at the place where Moody's face had been, saw Albus Dumbledore, Professor Snape, and Professor McGonagall looking back at him out of the Foe-Glass. He looked around and saw the three of them standing in the doorway, Dumbledore in front, his wand outstretched.
All three are reflected in Moody-Crouch's Foe-Glass - all of them are his enemies.
McGonagall may be a rather feckless person, but she is not evil. Mostly, I think she's just not a very important character, neither in the story nor in Harry's life.
That said, I guess we can't totally rule out the idea that someone we have trusted so far could turn out to be evil. But I really can't say who it might be.

Like other Harry Potter fans worldwide, Bonham Carter is awaiting the July 21 publication of Rowling's seventh and final Potter novel, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," to learn the characters' fate. But she's been given a hint that Bellatrix may play a part.

While she was considering whether to accept the relatively small role in "Order of the Phoenix," she says, "J.K. Rowling sent a message saying she's going to be very significant in the last one."

Yeah, I guess that's pretty much what will happen, but it still doesn't prevent the boring brat from dying, does it?

McGonagall may be a rather feckless person, but she is not evil. Mostly, I think she's just not a very important character, neither in the story nor in Harry's life.
That said, I guess we can't totally rule out the idea that someone we have trusted so far could turn out to be evil. But I really can't say who it might be.
As I said I'm not convinced, either. I just thought it is an interesting possibility, because I've always thought of McGonagall as a character that's just there. Not particularly important.

And about that essay, another pretty stupid point is that McGonagall got herself out of the way by the end of OotP. Ok, if she intended to do something like that, surely, she would have come up with something cleverer and less dangerous than jumping in the way of four Stunning curses...

Snape is working for the Order, the end of HBP tried to reinforce the image that he was evil - so to leave it like that would be predictable.
But now the idea that he's good and followed Dumbs' order to kill him to remain a spy has been made so predictable.. who knows? But I still think it's the most likely.

This way it creats more problems for Harry. IF Snape is working for the order, he's is still going to hate him - even more than ever, for killing AD, BUT how would Harry take the revelation that AD told him to do that? He wouldn't believe him, even with evidence I don't think it'll stop Harry from possibly trying to kill him.-Snape is Good.
This Snape question is a real divider. I can't believe how many of you believe he's working for the cause, lol. :D :vlol:

*Hopes she doesn't regret that taunt later...* :o

If anyone lovable dies I think it'll be Ron, Molly or Arthur or perhaps Ginny. It'll be a really courageous death too, protecting someone. I really think it'll be a Weasley though!-Molly dies.
-One of the twins () and maybe Charlie dies. I actually think a few of the Weasleys will die too... unfortunately...:whi:

:mis: :mis:

Molly will make me cry though.


Glad to see most people think Harry will live. I just wonder wonder wonder how he'll defeat Voldemort. Will he finally discover his amazing power as a wizard in HP7 or will his friends help him, or will "love" save the day...?

Ok.I should have probably said that Snape is "good". Not good.
I believe that so far he's done everything he could in order to survive, and he now hates himself for murdering the only person that ever trusted him and gave him a chance, and he wants to see the end of Voldy and in the end do a brave thing for a change.

Perhaps he'd love to be the one who takes full credit for bringing him down, but no doubt, Potter will take all the glory through his fingers again. Ha!

I don't think he is loyal to the Order, however. Loyal to Dumbledore, yes (even if he chose to save his own skin), but I suppose he'd love to see each each and everyone of them six-feet-under.

Or do you think he wasn't really, he only said that to Dumbledore in order to survive?

I mean, he's been portrayed in the books as repentant about his badness all along... Is he now going to be shown as living with the guilt he pretended to have for so many years, only this time for the death of Dumbledore and not Lily? That might be kind of ironic and maybe fitting.

Although I still think Harry won't let him live if he has anything to say about it. He let Pettigrew go but I can't see him letting Snivelly go... there's too many scores to settle - Sirius, Dumbledore, James, Lily.

Ada the Mental
10-07-07, 21:17

I believe that he did in fact feel sorry for Lily but it still was a clever move to switch sides while he still had time, and he did it again by chosing himself over Dumbledore.

I can't see it myself either, and yet... and yet... There's some serious vengence issues here on top of a fight of good over evil, that either JK faces straight on, or avoids by getting other people to do the deeds on Harry's behalf.

I don't want Harry to become a murderer and yet in some way I think I might feel a bit cheated if he doesn't get his hands dirty at all. How can he not under the desperate circumstances?

Doesn't matter how it works - the point is that Dumbledore, Snape and McGonagall were being seen in it at the same time. That means that they are on the same side in this war.
Come to think of it, that's a pretty good proof for Snape not being evil. :pi:

All signs point to Harry easily being able to kill this person - but could he?
Thinking about it, I can't see Harry killing anyone but Voldemort.

I don't think JK wants Harry to become a murderer, and I'm sure when it's all over that Harry won't be seen as one. It's a strange situation.
I honestly don't think Harry will kill anyone, not even Voldemort. If murder is the supreme evil, why would the hero of the story have to commit it?
My prediction regarding the end of Voldemort is that he and Harry will have a showdown, with Harry fully intending to kill Voldy, but he won’t be able to do it. Someone else will finally bring down Voldy. I have two separate theories for this: either Snape will kill Voldy, or else a Dementor will lovingly kiss him. I would personally prefer the latter – it would really be poetic justice.

While I am in a predicting mood … here are the rest of my predictions for Deathly Hallows:

The trio will survive.
Lupin, Tonks and Neville will survive. (This is mainly wishful thinking on my part ;))
At least one Weasley (other than Ron) will die, possibly even two.
Hagrid might die, maybe even early on in the book (another of Harry’s protectors gone).
Bellatrix will get hers, preferably at Neville’s hand.
Pettigrew will die saving Harry’s life – probably unintentionally.
Snape is not evil. He will play a pivotal role in the end.
Harry will not kill Voldemort (see above).
There will be a two-part climax (like in PoA).
Harry and Ginny will get back together, but only in the end.
Hogwarts will re-open, but only for part of the year. The trio will attend at least some classes, though the main action of the book will take place away from Hogwarts.
Aberforth Dumbledore will have an important role.
The Horcrux hunt will be easier than Harry expects, but there will be one major twist along the way: Harry will realise that he is a Horcux.
Dementors will be crucially important.

Rivendell
11-07-07, 09:48
Dementors kissing Voldemort.. That's a good thought!

But I can't help but think I'd feel a bit annoyed if Harry doesn't get rid of him. It's been building up to it for all these years - he'd better. I mean look at the prophecy! Kill or be killed, and Voldemort made the prophecy a reality by his choices.

I just wouldn't like a cop-out ending. It'd be like Kill Bill 2 all over again.. *shudders*

I honestly don't think Harry will kill anyone, not even Voldemort. If murder is the supreme evil, why would the hero of the story have to commit it?

I wonder killing in self-defence is the same as intentional murder? Does your soul get split by that?:confused:

Lupin, Tonks and Neville will survive. (This is mainly wishful thinking on my part ;))
I certainly hope so.I wouldn't be surprised if any of them died...Especially Lupin and Neville.
I refuse to accept that Remus will die, however, so I'm sticking to my "He Lives" prediction.;)

That McGonagall theory is brilliant.

I would she was acting wierd at some times at well. But I had never thought that she could be a death-eater.

I'm still not completely convinced, but if JKR really planned everything like this, she's an absolute genius and she's given us plenty of hints to suspect Mcgonagall.

It would be so brilliant to have us suspecting Snape for 7 books, only to find out it's the person you least suspect :D.

*SPOILERS*

OK, I got some sleep, let's try this again.

First- I don't recomend seeing it in 3D, but definitly see it in IMAX if you get the chance.

The movie was quite emotional: one minute you would be laughing, the next you would be forcing back tears. It starts off on the playground, and you hear a weatherman talking about the drought. Dudley and gang com along, he insults harry(he REALLY insults Harry), everything goes dark, we see the dementors, ect.

My memories of the movie are leaking. I'll just give some highlights of what I can remember:

-the dementors aremore like skeletons, though they arae actually still somewhat similar in appearance to the ones in PoA. They move much faster now.
-The Patronus is (get ready!) JUST-AS-IT-IS-IN-THE-BOOK! It is a stag, just a stag! It charges down one dementor, then he tells it to charge the other! WOOOO!
-Ms. Figg has had a personality change. She isn't mean. At all. She actually creates some comic relief during the first part of the film.
-We get to see the Extendable Ears!
-And the Snackboxes(which actually play a role in the plot this time)!
-Fred and George have their own sub-plot.
-Umbridges quill: Harry writes with his right hand, and the words appear on his left...
-They don't explain why Voldy was wearing a suit at the station...
-Don't be surprised to hear rock music playing in the common room.
-if you played the video game, you noticed that there was no veil. Well, it IS in the movie. Sort of anyway. It's semi-transparent...
-Sirius is killed with the killing curse, yet has time to look meaningfully at Harry after he is hit, before falling into(up?) the veil.
-The Voldemort possession is a big part of the battle, and lasts a lot longer than it did in the book.
-I think, for the first time since CoS, Hogwarts hasn't been changed! With the exception of the stone circle, which I believe is gone.
-Nigel is back(from GoF) and has a slightly more significant role.
-You'll be laughing at Umbridge at the begining, but at some point, you just want to slap her. She's even MORE cruel in the movie.
-Harry and Neville have a tearfull scene.
-The fireworks are AMAZING. Of course Harry has to go and ruin it.

That's all my sleepy mind can remember at this point. I'll add on to it later. If you want to know anything, just ask!

Doesn't matter how it works - the point is that Dumbledore, Snape and McGonagall were being seen in it at the same time. That means that they are on the same side in this war.
Come to think of it, that's a pretty good proof for Snape not being evil. :pi:Is it? Couldn't it be that Snape was an enemy of Barty (and possibly by extension Voldemort, but not definitely...) AND also be an enemy of Harry's? If the mirror is showing the "foes" of the person who currently owns it, those foes don't have to be united. Dumbledore, McGonagall and Snape could all have different reasons for being Barty's enemy which may or may not make them enemies of Harry's too. Depends which way you look at it I guess.

My prediction regarding the end of Voldemort is that he and Harry will have a showdown, with Harry fully intending to kill Voldy, but he won’t be able to do it. Someone else will finally bring down Voldy. I have two separate theories for this: either Snape will kill Voldy, or else a Dementor will lovingly kiss him.I have a feeling that this is the way it'll go too and like Rivendell I think may be a bit of a cop out ending.

There will be a two-part climax (like in PoA). I think they'll be some deadly twist somewhere in there too... :D

The "LOOK AT ME!" part was like..."Woah! You just yelled at Dumbledore!" and it was the scene after Mr. Weasley was attacked. Apparently, this is the part where Harry "Wanted to attack Dumbledore". After he says it, there is a long silence where everyone looks at Harry, then Snape enters and whisks him off to his first Oclumency lesson. The Harry-Dumbledore meeting was...short. Harry has already heard the prophecy(he heard it when he picked it up), and...well...Harry says his "You don't know how I feel" bit, then Dumbledore says "It's my fault", then Harry asks if the prophecy meant that one would have to kill the other, Dumbledore says yes, thats pretty much it. Come to think of it, there isn't even any shouting.

Yes, it is VERY emotional. You will go through a full range of emotions when you watch it. I nearly cried during the first Grawp scene! Grawp gives Hermione a present! Well, you'll see, it's very touching and funny at the same time. I DO wish he'd at least called her "Hermy".

Yates even forshadows HBP in many ways. The one that stood out the most was the Harry/Ginny relationship. Any time Cho was mentioned, Ginny had an annoyed-look on her face.

The only things that disapointed me were:

-No Howler from Dumbledore(Though the Ministry letter is one, well sort of)
-Dumbledores brother was only in about 4 seconds of the film.
-The way Umbridge found the Room of Requirment
-There was no closure on Harry and Cho's relationship.

Just some very small things. It keeps surprisingly close to the book.

Just saw a preview or behind-the-scenes special or whatever it was of the OotP movie last night ... looks really good, I must say. :) (This means a lot coming from someone who staunchly refuses to get excited about the HP movies. ;)) Umbridge is absolutely AMAZING! :jmp: Pretty much everything else looked very well done too - the scenes, characters, the set design (the MoM looks particularly good), the costumes ... can't wait to see the actual movie. :D

Can someone who has already seen it tell me if the St. Mungo's hospital scenes are included in the movie?

Killing Voldemort, however, would not count as murder, would it?
I wonder killing in self-defence is the same as intentional murder? Does your soul get split by that?:confused:
No idea, since Slughorn didn't differentiate between the various types of killing when he explained horcruxes to Riddle. It could be that only pre-meditated murder splits your soul ... or it could be that using Avada Kedavra to kill someone would automatically split your soul, no matter what your intentions. I hope that this bit is cleared up at the beginning of DH at least.

Is it? Couldn't it be that Snape was an enemy of Barty (and possibly by extension Voldemort, but not definitely...) AND also be an enemy of Harry's? If the mirror is showing the "foes" of the person who currently owns it, those foes don't have to be united. Dumbledore, McGonagall and Snape could all have different reasons for being Barty's enemy which may or may not make them enemies of Harry's too. Depends which way you look at it I guess.

12-07-07, 17:20
Just come back -

Bloody awesome (in the correct use of the term ;) ) film.
Best.One.Yet.

Goblet of Fire - shorter book, more cut out of the story in the film.
Order - longer book, more included in the film :confused: . Weird, but thankfully it shows as it's an excellent portrayal.

They have kept so close to all the little details in the book, I was utterly impressed! The acting has improved so much, the story was quite fast paced - but that kept it exciting.

SPOILERS!!!
Bits I loved:

1. Aberforth Dumbledore is seen shiftily following a goat off screen. :D
2. Bellatrix Lestrange's cheers "I-killed-Sirius-Blaa-ack!"
3. The cool / calm / suddenly evil Lucius Malfoy
4. The two different types of apparating - Black smoke for the DE's and White light for the Order.
5. LOTS of lines are taken directly from the book with no alteration
6. The scenes with Harry and Luna - JK is right, Evanna isLuna through and through.
7. Snape - the last Occlumency lesson was brilliant
8. The Breakout from Azkaban
9. The gory attack of Mr. Weasley
10. Dan's acting upon Sirius' death.

:tmb:

I.E (No big spoiler) -

The intro of Luna, could so easily have been her walking by and saying 'Hello', but nope - just like the book she's sitting on her own, reading the Quibbler upside down, reading something about Runes.

Rivendell
12-07-07, 19:13
Just shown through Harry's eyes, and Hermione saying "There's nothing there" so we know they can't see them, and combine that with Luna's explanation that only ones who've seen death can see them .. Then it sort of figures and requires no further explanation :tmb:

I am seeing it again tomorrow! Hurray! :D

Aberforth Dumbledore will have an important role.


I think you're right - here's why:

The locket Horcrux was missing from the Cave where Voldemort hid it.
We presume that very object to be the unopenable one from Sirius' house.
Mundungus Fletcher stole lots of stuff to sell.
In Hogsmeade he's selling stuff when Harry sees him. Who's he selling to?
Aberforth.

Aberforth has the Horcrux. :tmb: Maybe by accident or coincidental 'Oh that looks nice' spur-of-the-moment purchase, who knows.. But I'm certain he has it.

Hyper_Crazy
14-07-07, 13:13
I think the beginning of OotP was rushed, especially Grimmauld Place, I thought a lot more happen there, but hey, I guess they have to cut a lot out.

Does anyone think Umbridge's outfits get worse and worse throughout the film?

Ada the Mental
14-07-07, 14:17
I agree, probably it's Aberforth who has the locket. Lol! I think it'll funny when the Trio goes after Kreacher, and then after Mundungus only to find out that it has been almost under Dumbledore's nose all this time!


Anyway,I finished reading the "Seventh Horcrux" fanfic last night (or rather morning)!:D
And here's a review, just because I'm bored:
>>>Ok, it definitely was very good, but I have to agree about the Harry/Ginny moments. What annoyed me the most was that Ginny came across as a much more important character than Ron and Hermione.
And, really, what was that with Ginny taking out Snape? That was Harry's fight!

I loved the way they dealt with the Seventh Horcrux in Harry, and the scene in the Love Room was brilliant.

I even felt sad for Draco.I'm glad he didn't die, especially in such a horrible way!

I was with Snape being evil, though I loved the part in the Epilogue with Ron pestering Snape in Azkaban with news about Harry!

I was also disappointed with the fact that Neville didn't have a major part, Luna didn't even appear and we didn't get to see the battle at Hogwarts.
The deaths now:

I felt really very sad about Percy, especially since he never got the chance to really be forgiven by his siblings.

Remus and Tonk's death was really touching, but I think that since they were to die they should have got a bit more "screen time". I think it was a bit rushed..."Ok, they're dead, they sacrificed themselves, pity, let's get on with the story now". I was mega-annoyed when the PoV switched to Ginny in the next chapter!
We didn't even found with their bodies, nor Percy's, and I think that would have added some closure. (In fact,what did the Death Eaters do with all the corpses in the Ministry? Just morbid curiosity...)<<<

14-07-07, 14:23
Just one more week untill the final book :D.

I finished reading HBP again last night 4 am. This time Dumbledore's death really sank in. The meaning of his death.

Now that Harry doesn't have Dumbledore, who on earth will help him with the last horcruxes like Dumbledore could? I mean look at the horcrux in the cave. it was hidden and protected by powerfull magical spells, none if which Harry could have figured out or perfom on his own. Only Dumbledore could.

Who will be the wise person to guide Harry in DH?

And another thing that's bothering me to death right now is that freaking Snape. I want to believe Dumbledore and think that Snape is a good guy. And I had believed it up untill this sentece: "Snape gazed for a moment at Dumbledore, and there was revulsion and hatred etched in the harsh lines of his face." After this he says Avada Kedavra.

Did he do this because of the Death Eathers, or because he really hated Dumbledore?

And again how he treats Harry at the end of the book, he let's Harry live, but he really hates him to death, he warns the other Death Eathers that Voldemort wants to be the one to finish Harry off. Was this true? Or did Snape say that to save Harry's live?

I can't wait for the last book just to know what on earth Dumbledore was thinking to trust Snape. Just because he was sorry he had been the one to tell Voldemort about the prophecy and by doing that had helped in the murder of James and Lily Potter? I highly doubt that was the only reason why Dumbledore trusted him.

Another thing that I noticed when reading the book again, that it has become so much darker. It's really on the edge of being suitable for kids. I can't imagine little kids reading about a lake full of dead body's coming to live and people getting cursed with sectumsempra with their skin cut open. Or the horrible thought of Bill's face being mutilated (dunno if that's the right word) by Greyback.

But imo that's a good thing. The whole Harry Potter story has gotten very serious over the years and it handles grown up issues as friends, relationships, betrayal, love, death.

L.C

WOW!

Definitely the best HP film yet!

It was just as good as everyone said it was, and I have the strange compulsion to see it over and over, something that hasn't happened to me since I saw the first Star Wars films back in the 70's :cln:

The final battle scene was awesome---I get chills just thinking about it.

I wish Tonks had a bit more screen time, as she was cast perfectly.

And, as I said in another thread, just how cool was Moody's broomstick?

Mucho kudos to David Yates. And looking forward to his version of the next installment.

:D

Dan's immediate acting after the death scene is spot on, slowed down, solemn, yet you can really feel the grief and rage in those few seconds.Yes, far more emotional technique this time.

Yes, I also liked it in the 4th movie after Cedric's death, I almost cried.I did :(

When he arrived back in the stadium clutching his body crying, then Cedric's dad started wailing - that's such an emotionally ravaging scene.That's what really got to me----I could feel his anguish because instinctively I thought that's how I would feel if I ever lost my own son :(

Just got back from watching it

I hated how it didnt show Luna and Harry helping the others onto the birds didnt make it make sense just made it like oh so they can see them now? I loved the end fight though was really amazing!

The film was amazing (yes, I am a big HP fan...I just haven't got round to talking about it here lol :p)

Anyway, a mini review from me:


The incredible acting was backed up by some excellent directing and the special effects were awesome.

Standout moments (obviously, spoilers here...so highlight if you've watched it already):

The escape scene in the dept. of mysteries with the collapsing shelves carrying the prohecy orbs.

The aftermath of Sirius' death

The Weasley brothers wreaking havoc upon hogwarts as they leave Hogwarts and the oppresive Umbridge.

/spoilers.


One thing I noticed is that they left out the hospital scenes which I think were quite important. Y'know, the part where Harry sees Neville's parents? That's one little disappointment that was outweighed by how great the film was overall.

Breakneck pace, not too overdone and great atmosphere/playing with emotions. (escpecially with the well placed comic relief!)

I think you're right - here's why:

The locket Horcrux was missing from the Cave where Voldemort hid it.
We presume that very object to be the unopenable one from Sirius' house.
Mundungus Fletcher stole lots of stuff to sell.
In Hogsmeade he's selling stuff when Harry sees him. Who's he selling to?
Aberforth.

Aberforth has the Horcrux. :tmb: Maybe by accident or coincidental 'Oh that looks nice' spur-of-the-moment purchase, who knows.. But I'm certain he has it.


I'm trying to remember...Is it ever actually MENTIONED that the barman is Aberforth? I know that it is pretty much given, but Harry doesn't seem to have realized it yet. Which he should have by now.

I think it is very likely that Aberforth has the locket. See, assuming the locket WAS at number 12, Dung found it, and sold it to Aberforth in Hogsmeade. The thing is, I think Dumbledore would have known about it. Aberforth obviously tells him that he bought stuff from Dung, and he probably would have told him WHAT he was buying.

I was just watching a bit of the Sorcerer's Stone movie yesterday ... I had to shut it off after about 15 minutes - the kids' acting was so BAD! *shudder* They really have come a long way as actors in the past 6 years, haven't they? (Well, not Rupert Grint - his acting still makes me cringe. :rolleyes:)

No.
Arthur (after Narjini's attack) was directly took to the Black's house, I mean, they didn't show him in the hospital.

I think they had so much to do with the ministery of magic to care about the hospital. But you can wait to see it in the 6th movie!
I'm impatiently impatient to see HBP! :jmp:
Aww, that's too bad - I wanted to see St. Mungo's. :( But why would it be in the HBP movie? There's no St. Mungo's scene in that book. :confused:

Yup, the Aberforth-locket angle seems like the best way to introduce him to the trio. Though I think that it may not have been an accident that Aberforth bought the locket ... could he possibly know about the horcruxes? Did Albus confide in him?

Anyway,I finished reading the "Seventh Horcrux" fanfic last night (or rather morning)!:D
And here's a review, just because I'm bored:
>>>*long review not quoted*<<<
I agree wholeheartedly. Way too much importance given to Ginny, but otherwise pretty damn good. The Love Room scene was really fantastic - I really hope we get something like it in DH. And the method of getting the horcrux out of Harry was brilliant. :jmp: I loved the three horcrux quests too, especially the third one. And of course, I was thrilled that Umbridge got what she so thoroughly deserved - getting killed by werewolves. :mis:

It's not mentioned in the book, but Rowling confirmed in an interview that the barman is Aberforth.

I don't know, I just said it. The movies isn't 100% like the books, and I thought they'll give us some pleasure, or maybe in the 7th movie? 'Cause I have to see how does St. Mungo's looks like!

Well, It DOES give a pretty good description in the book...and the sets aren't always accurate in the movies. Hogwarts, for example: There isn't even a grand staircase in the books.

:D I'm just reading the Wiki page on Lord Voldemort - it's funny reading the way each language has had to alter Voldemort's real name in order for the anagram to work; in French, his middle name is Elvis! :vlol:

I don't think it was a matter of choice, more like a matter of a seer picking up vibes then blurting it out in a tranced state.
No particular reason behind them, just.. happenings really! :)

I finally bought the 6th book yesterday lol. I don't understand though. WHy do they have the books on the shelves, like they may have 2 types of covers and the same sized writing, but one is about 2/3 the thickness of the other?

When I had first searched for the 6th book it was pretty much the same size of the PoA book, but the one I finally bought is about the size of GoF...
