Maybe it's just me, but I haven't liked a single one of the Harry Potter movies. Although I would like to own the Goblet of Fire preview poster.

"Difficult times lie ahead, Harry."

Brilliant.

It's actually "difficult," not dark. lol

I have a t-shirt with the poster image on it (<333 Hot Topic!)...

I love Harry Potter. A lot. And I didn't use to, so I really haven't seen the movies too many times...but I love Harry Potter. A lot. And book four has some great stuff in it (even if my initial reading of it was what drove me to be anti-HP for a while). Like Hermione snogging Krum, apparently, lol. I bet they cut the Quidditch World Cup, though.

Hey! Isn't GOF the one where there's an extended scene of Harry taking a bath?

mmm...




(don't worry George Weasley, I still love you.)

Yes, it is. I was hoping to catch it before anyone saw it.

And yes, GOF does include the bath scene (where he is trying to work out the clue in the giant egg)

marie, do you have the 'difficult times lie ahead' shirt?


my roommate and i are discussing rumours on book number seven right now--i've determined that probably snape is actually harry's dad.

my roommate thinks it's flitwick. hmm....

yes ma'am. (and that ron shirt is amazing, too, but cedric on my chest is enough for me! especially when ron's such a jerk in book 6...lol)

AL, snape. yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!

Rumors on book 7? I haven't heard any (and I don't think I want to...maybe...), but I'm quite willing to make one up...something about george weasley knocking up hermione? No, no, get your mind out of the gutter, in britain that just means calling someone!

Do you have to be single in order to teach at hogwarts? I mean, I guess you'd be living in the castle so you wouldn't be able to see them...but maybe 2 teachers could get together? lol *shrug*
I mean, 'cause I'd say that when Harry's old, he'll be Dumbledore. *shrug*


OH!
talking about HP w/ the family the other day, my dad hasn't read the books so we were explaining stuff to him, he had asked if the wizards detect anyone with magical powers "like with the force" to recruit to hogwarts or whatev. we're like yeah, hermione's muggle-born...and then...
My mom made the point that Harry's parents are exactly Harry and Hermione...as if it was obvious. ...I had never picked up on it.
On JKR's website on the FAQs when someone asked who hermy'll end up with, the answer is "isn't it obvious?"
is THAT what it means?!?!?
because I always thought it'd be ron!!!! (other than he's a jerk who doesn't deserve her), the books always put more sexual tension between those two...although the recent movie certainly had a lot of harry-hermione sexual tension...
yeesh.




props to you if any of the above ramblings made sense to you, lol...

The ramblings did make some since but what will turn out in the next book will be found out after it comes out and people read it.

I have a few ideas of what might happen but I will wait and see.

so in alpha we're doing this group presentation about how the charactres in harry potter are archetypes or something.
i'm discussing dumbledore. i introduce my part of the presentation by mentioning gandalf and ben kenobi, who are the same character as dumbledore, essentially.
now i'm brainstorming about how the three gentlemen abandon the heroes so they learn to fight the enemy or whatev alone...

obi-wan kenobi: dies so luke can escape. comes back (sporadically, in a ghostly form).
gandalf: dies so frodo can escape. comes back (for real).
dumbledore: dies so harry can escape. is identical to the two previous characters in every single other way......
eff.

I finally got around to reading it.

Having read all the chapter titles (e.g. Chapter 30 - The White Tomb) before reading the text, and also given the foreshadowing of having a blackened, shriveled hand, I fully expected Dumbledore to be the one who bit the dust this time around. Poor bloke.

So I wasn't too terribly shocked. Also, Harry seemed to shed the angsty teenager schtick and had come into his own, and it was pretty obvious that Dumbledore had complete faith in Harry's abilities to continue the struggle against Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Thusly, Dumbledore's death was not in vain - he had completed whatever he set out to do. And I fully expect this to become apparent in the next book.

Snape. Didn't see that one coming. I thought Riddle or maybe another Death Eater would end up being the Half-Blood Prince. And I think Snape is probably still a good guy, or if not, then he'll at least be redeemed by the end of the next one. We have too much invested in him for him to simply turn out to be the ultimate betrayer.

I can see that Draco will probably end up being redeemed as well, and he might even be the one who kills his own evil daddy.

Beyond all this seriousness, I found much of the book to be a light-hearted blast: "Phlegm." Felix Felicis. McLaggen (the oaf). "Won Won." The gnome on top of the Christmas tree. The characters learning to drive, er, I mean, apparate. Kreacher and Dobby. Hagrid getting drunk. And so on.

I liked this one better than the fifth, which seemed to take forever to get anywhere and in which Harry was pissed the entire time.

I was surprised with all the "hell"s and "damn"s and "slut"s going on.

Oh, and I thought Harry would end up with Luna, not Ginny. But the reason he gives for breaking up with her - ha, so lame.

There have been other people in history that have betrayed a major person.

With the language the book is definately getting away from youger kids reading it.

The excuse isn't worth it but sometimes relationships shouldn't have started in the first place.

I just saw #4. I must say, I really liked it. Except that Hermione looks nothing like she does in anything outside of the movie (in the movie she looks her age, outside, older). And Cho Chung or whoever. Oh, and the moaning myrtle scene was a bit creepy. Poor Harry was violated

I don't understand what you're saying about Hermione and Cho...Hermione's supposed to be 15, I believe...*shrug*

You want the Moaning Myrtle scene to be creepy? As you watch it, think about how the actress is, like, 40-something...haha

la la la...me gusta Cedric.

I don't think too many of the characters look as young as they're supposed to be. Like, Fred and George are supposed to be 16 (but I still loooove George!) and I don't think they look 16. They could use haircuts, though.

*shrug* the end.

I would say duuuuuuh RON, but...maybe I've mentioned this on a previous page, I really don't remember...Rowling is throwing in some EXTREME parallels between James and Lily Potter and Harry and Hermione. Which probably means they'll end up together, you know, good literary techniques or whatev. But I think it should be Ron. Hermione and Ron flirt a lot more. Other than how he's a total jerk in book 6.

Urgh, it made me mad. I'm sure that's clear to you though if you read the first page or so of this (I haven't lately, but I know I was really mad). lol *shrug*

I mean, not to play into the every-young-female-reader-identifies-with-Hermione thing. haha

If I had a daughter, I'd rather she identify with Hermione than Romilda or Lavender. I just hope the 7th movie gets made before Daniel Radcliffe et al. are all 30.

I think I may have read the first page of this. I will confess to having scanned some of the longer threads to figure out who is who, but I don't remember what I read. LOL

I like that he's saying he wants to show off more of himself as an actor. First, if you want to do that, don't do Equus. It's a stupid play. Just unbelieveably lousy material. Really, he just wants the publicity attendant him showing off his junk.
