Who saw this movie? I did, and I must say it is REALLY different to the other two movies, which makes it hard for me to pick which of the three is my favourites. It's a definite must-see that I'd really recommend either way!

Absolutely so different to the first two. A brilliant director makes all the difference as does a great cast. I'll bang the drum now and say we British have the best actors in the world, Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith its like a who's who of great British talent all in one film.

Even the three youngsters have improved but can they maintain the roles as they grow older? I know Harry et al grow older in the books, but Daniel Radcliffe will probably be about 20 when the 7th film comes out.

I saw it the other day.... In my opinion, 'twas rather good. Third book is my favourite, and I prefer this film's direction. Worth seeing just for Alan Rickman in such a ridiculous outfit.
But was I the only one who noticed Gary Oldman was possibly trying to pull off a Jack Sparrow-type role?

This was my biggest problem with the film. Gary Oldman is a fine, fine actor, but I'm not sure he looked right for this role. Those "wanted" posters that kept showing up everywhere featured the face of an aging Italian pastry chef. That was no mad mass murderer.

The same goes for that Thewlis guy who played Lupin. He looked about as much like a werewolf as I look like Brian May.

Alan Rickman was the man of the hour. I was not overly impressed with the new Dumbledore, and the kids were the same as ever.

well we're clearly not going to shut up.
Anyways, I havent heard much about it from anyone... a lot of people up here seem to have forgotten about the films.

I loved seeing alan rickman in that ridiculous outfit, brought a smile to a rather dreary day...I must say I think the sirius and remus slash fangirls are probably going to gripe though....
and argh, tom felton's hair will always make me cringe, greased back or flopping around...I really liked Hermione's character for once, she just seemed more human thant before... but yeah, its interesting seeing the cast grow up, makes me feel kind of old and like a mother.
I always wonder about cast changes... I think they can probably keep them till the 5th film or so, people are always cast in younger roles, you know? Speaking of which, what did you guys think of the new dumbledore? Something about him...:-/

Well-ahm...You can always go for the option NOT to click a topic when the headline reads "Harry Potter". I'm sorry that you are so sick of hearing about it, and I'm sure you're not alone, but other people have their right to speak about whatever they want to speak about. One really great way to avoid reading about Harry Potter, is to refrain from clicking any link which has the word "Harry Potter" in it!

Sure, it's something different when people around you, such as your friends, constantly TALK about HP, you can't always escape that. However that's not our fault, and you can vent in front of your friends rather than in front of people you obviously don't have to interefere with at all, as you easily could avoid the topic.

Sorry to have a go at you, I was in the mood.

I loved the movie, much better and darker than the first 2. I think the first movie was just too 'Disney', And the 2nd one, I think, was aimed for the same people who would go and see Lord of the Rings. I was very pleased with the result of the 3rd movie, Saw some behind the scenes part of the 4rd movie already, looks very promising!

we saw it today (sunday) for the 2nd time and it is a great movie

It is almost impossible to watch it without having read the book, too many differences, but it is great

Love the new directors' style, the humor and I as well am chrmed from the new player for Dumbledore

Missed Malfoy a bit, and wanted more of all, but ah well, we can always read the book

And no matter how you see it, sooner or later Harry Potter is going to grab you, it grab me this year and I am Potterised :)




Another fantastic posting of a wonderful person!

IMO,this one was much better than the 2 others.The casting is good and the story's darker,which is the main reason why the movie disparts itself from the first 2 Potter films.

Silje!! I was in a very pissy mood also... I didn't say people couldn't discuss what they wanted to because then this wouldn't be a good message board now, would it? :) Don't get me wrong -- I think the books are fantastic but it's just so much Harry Potter Mania at once that it's driving me up the wall.

One day I'll see the movies. But I was running on a lack of sleep when I threw my two cents in, so forgive me!

I'm with Saturn I was a Potter-Sceptic saying for ages its a kids film and book and I don't need to waste my life watching the films. I saw the first one on pirate and thought it was ok, I took my nephew to watch the second one and was well impressed. But this third one is fantastic. A perfect way to waste 2 hours of your life.

I havn't read the books I don't have time to read.

You don't need time for the books. The longer ones take about 20 minutes to read, they move really fast.

What I missed most was that there wasn't enough time spent in the classrooms. And the werewolf Lupin hardly looked like a werewolf. But then again, it was something original, just as the REAAAAAALLLLYY creepy Dementors.
