seeing it tonight, hope it's good. two reviews I've read so far give it 2.5 stars.

don't worry, i'm still a fan. but i'm a very rigid and stubborn supporter of the books. book 5 is one of my favs...so i was a bit disappointed in how it was carried out. but, it's all good. like the nut that i am, i'm gonna make the same sacrifices for the 6th and 7th movies...lol and probably complain about the same things!

I enjoy the movies, they're fun. But I'm a bigger fan of the books, so I'm much more excited for the book to come out.

meh.
I can vouch for that. It's a house where that guy hangs out because he's going to get killed if he rolls up with his boys in public, right? And Harry goes to visit him and they become lovers?

How was the 3D part?

Did you watch the movie or have you been reading fanfic?

Saw it yesterday morning - while I enjoyed the film, the amount of little scenes left out the book made the whole 'Dumbeldore's army' sequences seem rather pointless. I will say this - Loony Lovegood was hilarious.

But hey, at least I get to see it.
me too probably... even though there will be children it will be generally less crowded during the afternoon

may end up doing a late night showing though. either way.

Holy fucking shit.







Kick. Ass. Movie.

They left stuff out, but they needed to. There are things that I wish were fleshed out some----the Dumbledore/Harry interaction at the end, and giving Ginny more than one measly line (this is the book where she's become a strong character and it wasn't there in the film). However, they did a pretty darn good job of turning a tedious book into a fantastic film.

Oh dear.....Utoo, I apologized in that "Harry Potter Predictions" thread, for that sentence or two, but I have to agree with your "review"--LOL . You were right to say what you did of course. I TOTALLY AGREE!!!

I posted a VERY long and detailed review in that thread but I had a mixup and said something I shouldn't have there, so I got told off and deserved it. That wasn't my normal self. I guess people not being able to read it here, where it belongs, and reply is my own worst punishment.


If I had known, HERE was where I should have posted that long and detailed review. So if anyone wants massive film spoilers, go to page 5 or 6 of that thread and there they are.

Since I haven't made a total ass of myself here, do I have permission to ask you, Utoo, what you think of my review here? . And did you notice 2 things: Sirius, right before he is killed, says "Nice one, James!" as they are battling.. as if he forgets that it is Harry at his side. That's not in the book (funny how Yates takes a line from Snape's worst Memory and puts it here instead.) And how a few mins later there's an "Obi-wan" moment where we hear Sirius's voice speaking to Harry, just as Obi-wan speaks to Luke after he is killed. Not in the book either....

I really do love those moments where they interject the perfect retorts that follow to character cannon. I loved that he said that and Harry kind of gave him an odd look for the briefest of moments. I think that most of the people who hear that and haven't read the book will be extremely confused though.
It just wrapped up a lot of the "Maybe you aren't so much like your father as I thought" talk that Sirius always gives him.

That and when Umbridge was saying, "Tell them I mean them no harm!"

"I'm sorry, Professor, but I must not tell lies."

Awesome!

I thought that Book 4 was one of the best, but by far the worst movie, so hopefully they didn't fuck up Book 5 as much.

It doesn't come out here until July 19th... I wonder how much they will cut, since this is the longest book. (think Goblet of fire)

The previews look great though.

as generic public: great movie

as the obssesed fan I'm: it's ok, a lot of scenes I wanted to see weren't in the movie!

my problem in general: the lack of Snape
