i have mixed feelings toward this movie. i felt that they ommitted some super important details from the book, plus it's too fast. and it didn't have that much impact on me.

the good thing is, they took out the dragginess the 5th HP book had. and the actors did brilliant jobs, especially Imelda Staunton (umbridge) and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood).

what did you think? please explain.

That actually sucks. :\ I love that strange "feeling" the 5th books gives us. It's totally different from the other HP books.

I still haven't watched the movie, so I dunno... But from the pics I've seen, Luna is HOT.

Yeah, that might be to do with the fact that it's utterly sadistic. Which would explain why you like it so much.

When I saw you agreed with me in the Sharing The Music - Request section, I knew you'd have to insult me somewhere else to make up for that. :P

I must admit, I think this movie is probably the best movie in all the Harry Potter Movies history. I loved Luna and Umbrdige (well, I hated Umbridge, of course, but I loved the woman who acted as her). They were brilliantly cast.

I was a little disapointed at some points that they missed out (Umbridge sending the dementors, etc), but I thought the book was definately a little too long and that they but as much as they could into the movie without making it unbearably long.

I did, however, nearly cry about three times.
SPOILER AHEAD!!

Mainly when Harry and Sirius were together, and I knew what was coming with Sirius, and I just had to sit in the cinema, gulping back tears :( It was nice seeing them having a close relationship - Sirius always will be my favourite character.

Another thing I was disapointed in was the way Sirius died. There was no big impact or anything - it just didn't seem right to me. That part could have been a lot more distrssing, in my opinion.

But all in all, I loved it and I'm planning to go see it again (at least twice - if my mom will put up with it)
4.5/5

I don't insult you just for fun, I insult you when I believe you deserve it. When you don't, you don't get insulted. You might've noticed that I hadn't said anything against you as of late.

And you will have to admit: you have a taste for suffering.

In fiction, yes.

I hate movies where it's too real. Such as Mel Gibson's movie about Jesus, and those 3 movies about that guy who plays those horrible "games" with his victims. But a lil bit of violence here and there is pretty fun, as long as it doesn't make me imagine people in extreme pain.

XD

I do hope that Rowling isn't THAT corny. Mind you, she's got so many unfinished ends hanging loose after Pts. 1-6, that ANY ending is possible, basically. The only thing I don't believe possible is that Dubledore returns three pages from the end, tears off his mask and is discovered to be Voldemort, who was dramatically misunderstood, not being full of the Dark Arts, but in fact an obsessive garden-gnome collector.

I don't read Harry Potter, but my sister (a huge fan until the apparently nonsensical 6th book) reckons that Rowling has an appalling tendency to use too many adverbs. I wonder if she means it!

I think the 5th book was a LOT more nonsense. And I kinda prefer the 5th book... Because of that!

I don't know how old your sister is, but if she's one of the fans who started back with part 1, when Rowling was still writing what was basically a children's book, I can imagine. Part 6 is chaotic, menacing and pretty mature in that it is full of violence, evil and hate.


Anyway, the 'fun' doesn't *really* start 'till part three. Lupin & Black all the way!

I was never very clear on her grievances with that book (I sort of just nod and say 'ahhhh'). Chiefly she seemed to think it was very poorly written and somewhat.. inconsistent, character-wise, when considering the books that came before it.

But as I say.... I really don't have a clue about any of it!!

Yes, 'tis true. I've read them all. (well, except for #7, which is to be released on the 21st in the States).

My biggest worry with Book 7 is that I will accidently find out details of the plot before I get to read them myself.

longest book so far = shortest film so far = not a positive thing.

As a non-reader of the books I found it lacking in actual plot. Could Helena Bonham-Carter have been used any less and still got a credit?

Very poor.

Imagine this - you go to the book store and some little kid looks at the last page and screams out, "Oh, no! Harry is dead!" Maybe ear plugs would work. Haha. Or imagine this: you go to a discount store to buy it and the dumb sales clerk says, "Oh, you'll like that. It has a happy ending." Anyway, maybe I am too worried about this. Maybe I should order Book 7 from Amazon.


That happened to me with the sixth one before i read about who got murdered some lil knob can't even remember who, was like 'How did you feel when ...'
Needless to say they now know never to spoil book endings again ...
