I've moaned about Gambon as Dumbledore in every film so far - except this; he was brilliant. Knitting pattern gags and horrible death (SORRY!) inclusive.

I wish........... re Dd

 
that it had been a tad more visually specific in that I thought that Snape gave Dd a killing bolt ( i couldn't discern the actual Spell word.
And didn't realize that Snape had also hurtled him out of the castle, until I saw him on the ground.
Wasn't there a fuzzy gray visual before (we find out) that Dd had hit the ground??

Saw it over the weekend and really liked it. I want to see it again for sure.

How great was Ralph Fiennes' nephew as the young Tom Riddle? Totally creeped me out. And Alan Rickman was, of course, fantastic as usual. Deathly Hallows spoiler:
 
My friends were all seething at him at the end, so it's great to sit back and watch them make fools of themselves in a few years time. His death scene is going to be so freaking moving. I can see it already. They better not fuck it up.


Now I've got to go back and read books 3 - 7 again. The other two should just be excluded from the series, aside from the basilisk fight in book 2.

As for the Veteran British Actor™ thing, there's one more joining the cast for film #7:
 
Bill Nighy as Rufus Scrimegour

just saw it, and have to say I was disappointed.

Stuff they added, too much romancy stuff, left out the Gaunt's. It seemed to be played on fast forward. I also dont like how they dumbed down the suprise of certain plot points (cabinet etc)

I saw it twice. Once with my friends on opening day, so we could pick apart every glaring plot flaw compared to the books (a plentiful supply of these), and once with my sis who is a huge fan of the movies, but not the books.

I didn't like it too much. As the general consensus seems to be, too much romance and teenage hormones. I cannot believe they left out the Gaunt memory! That's really important! Plus, when Harry found out about Horcruxes, they raced through the explanation. There wasn't even follow through and it didn't allow people who haven't read the books (like my sis) to let the concept of Horcruxes sink in. Not to mention, Dumbledore never mentioned how the Horcruxes are Hogwarts founders' objects. The huge fight scene in the end with the Death Eaters vs. the Order and the DA was left out...and the list goes on.

I thought Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint were pretty good in this movie, and Ron was pretty much the scene stealer (along with Cormac ). Emma Watson was much more tolerable, I think someone told her to tone down the overacting. As always, Gambon is not my Dumbledore. He's OK, but Richard Harris was much, MUCH better, imo. But my top Dumbledore will always be Sir Ian McKellan, he is who I always pictured as Dumbledore. Anyone else super duper happy about Bill Nighy as Scrimgeour? I love that guy.

I fucking love that, too. The only other actor I could think of that I'd want as Rufus was Patrick Stewart.

He's the only one that hasn't made a cameo yet. Maybe he should be the goatfucker. I can't remember his name, only that he sleeps with goats.

As a non-Potter-reader, watching the fanatics pick apart all the discrepancies and 'flaws' of the movies is one of the simple joys in my life.

Yeah, but that didn't happen in the book.
