Default All New Harry Potter Thread post July 15, 2011

OK, I don't know how to edit the poll in the old thread, so I am creating a new HP thread and locking the old one, so we can comment on the new movie when it comes out July 15.

FWIW, I am very hopeful, even though somewhat disturbed by the trailer that shows Harry taunting Voldy with "Let's end this the way we started it" and jumping off a tower? I do not want them to change the final battle/Voldy death scene from the book!

It is July 11 as I write this -- very excited for the new and final film!

Ah, but let us remember that trailers sometimes use pieces of movies that do not make it into the final cut. As for what's actually going to happen...we'll have to wait and see. :P

You are right.

I saw the Larry King/CNN retrospective special which showed more; I am wondering now if Harry and Voldy's final duel will start like it does in the book, but then travel all over Hogwarts, kind of like the Harry vs Dragon scene did in the GoF film. Remember in the book he managed the dragon task in the grounds where the dragon was, but in the film the dragon chased him all over Hogwarts. It was more dramatic that way; maybe that's what they have in mind for the final duel.

I enjoyed the CNN special, especially seeing the actors as little children again, that was very sweet. Plus HBC and Robbie Coltrane and the boys who play the twins were on, it was really good.

Hey, remember everyone when you post your movie review here, to be sure to put a *** SPOILER ALERT *** for those of us who don't see it on opening day. Thanks!

Firstly *** SPOILER ALERT ***

Living in New Zealand, we often have to wait for movies and TV shows to come out. Sometimes however, they they are released worldwide at the same time, we get to see them first, because of time zones. So it looks like I'm the first one here

I loved that i loved it, but if there was a between that and "it was Ok", I probably would have gone with that. Overall, I though that it was a great climax to the series overall.

But there were part, particularly towards the end, which I though were weak. The aftermath, I was left disappointed with that. There was not really any emotion, ether the joy or morning, both of which were there in the book. There seemed little emotional response to the fact the the greatest dark wizard of all time had just been defeated. And it really was not clear which peace of magic finished Vodermort off. In the book, its his rebounding avada kedavra, but it the movie, its almost as if losing the wand destroys him. I also would have like the event have have had more witnesses. While it looked like Ron, Hermione and Neville did, no one else did. I also didn't like that Harry never fixes his own wand before breaking the elder wand, and that Neville is never told to destroy the snake, but just happens to do so. It was very much focused on Harry, Ron and Hermione. Personally, I would have liked to have seen more of some of the other characters.

Overall however, it was great. It was fast passed and exiting, fulled with humor as well as sadness, and involved some great magical warfare.

Nice to see you Narborg! Welcome back!

Wow, I can't believe you saw it already ... it is still Wednesday here -- did you get to see it on Thursday?

OK

***SPOILER ALERT ***

Already I am distressed if Neville's heroic role is not expanded and if only he and Ron and Hermione witness Harry's defeat of Voldy. Also I am very distressed if it is not clear that Voldy's killing curse rebounded, and why. Harumph! I want the film to be more like the book, which was beautiful!!!

Neville is still very heroic, it just the focus is more on Harry, Ron and Hermione. I did enjoy the movie overall. The Gerngots scene, well sorter, earlier and less a part of the film than I was expecting, was great, the battle over all was awesome to watch, and it was an action packed, fast moving and exiting movie. Its just unfortunate that the parts I did not like as much were the most important parts.
A movie is always going to be different to the book. Its a totally different medium and (especially in books as large as the later Harry Potter books) have a lot less space to tell the story. So they are always going to leave things out. And each reader bring their own imagination as to what happens to the movie, which also makes it difficult. I guess its up to each individual fan to decide it the movie it true enough to the book.

Awesome! I am not going to the midnight showing. My husband said he would go with me, but not the first week because he doesn't want to fight the crowds! I may be a whole week before I can see it.

True, but also this is one of the shortest, if not THE shortest, movie of all 8. Potter fans would have say through 3 hours if they would have included more from the book, and been happier ...
