Harry Potter movie

slated in mainstream at 9:19 pm

Saw Order of the Phoenix last night..
Watching something like that is actually quite a trip… I’d forgotten that there might be anything more to it than really long lines.
There’s really really long lines really early before the movie, and there’s the extra-dorkiness status you garner by association with others in the line dressed as a Firebolt (yes, the broom), as Death Eaters, as Harry Potter, tons of random t-shirts saying things like “Severus is my slave/Severus is my master”, and countless girls with lightning bolts drawn on their foreheads with eye-liner. I may never be cool again. ;)

Anyway, the movie was well done… of course a lot from the book gets left out, cuz you can only cram so much into the span of one movie…but they obviously try hard to make these HPotter movies impressive. I have to go back and reread several of the books, cuz it turns out that my brain doesn’t bother retaining plots I’ve read from books over 2+ years ago (—which makes movie-watching kinda better, actually…).

[small spoiler if you haven’t read the book:]
There was a great moment while watching the movie where Cornelius Fudge walks into the room and sees Voldemort and finally must face the truth that Dumbledore was right all along and that you-know-who/he-who-must-not-be-named is back. —he walks in, sees, stops short, and exclaims in a loud whisper with a dumbfounded look on his face, “He’s back!” — to which someone in the audience yelled out, “Yea Bush!!!” and all of us cheered. :)

Comments on Harry Potter movie

  1. lol Land

    Spoilers, lol

    * Ron dies. * Lupin dies. * Percy dies (this death occurs before the wedding, inevitably throwing events into chaos). * Voldemort dies. * Snape dies.

    Details aren't needed. Just say BELLATRIX KILLS RON!

    Snape's loyalty? I found this to be the saddest part of the book. As many people guessed, all was not what it seemed with Dumbledore, and the two did indeed have a plan that would eventually result in Snape killing him. But, Snape was only in on things for personal gain, and when Voldemort learns of this, he is obviously furious with Snape. Snape tries to make up for things by luring Harry to him, but Harry manages to escape, and Voldemort kills Snape before the final conflict.

    I don't know what all these rumours are about Voldemort kidnapping Ron, it's a complete lie. Ron is killed by Bellatrix Lestrange in The Battle of Hogwarts, but Neville manages to finish off Bellatrix after Ron weakens her before his death.

    Harry is not a horcrux.

    As I've already stated, Voldemort kills Snape.

    Voldemort is killed in the Department Of Mysteries. He baits Harry about his parents, Sirius, Dumbledore and Ron. which turns out to be the worst thing Voldemort could have done. As Voldemort steps out into the circular bit with many doors, Harry opens the locked door, and Voldemort is destroyed by the blinding light, which heals Harry, who seems close to death (he does not die).

    The cover art shows Voldemort + Harry at the Deathly Hallows, Harry is attempting to summon Voldemort's Horcrux, as Voldemort is doing his best to keep the enchantment in place.

    No-one loses a body part, no idea where that came from?

    Also Harry does not get drunk whoever said that.

    Harry does not lose his powers.
    What's the deal with the dragon on the US deluxe cover?

    The trio fly on it to get to the Deathly Hallows. Only Harry and Voldemort can fight on the Deathly Hallows, but this is not their final encounter.
    What's happening on the UK kids cover?

    Gringotts. The trio are searching for the locket (it isnt there) but they get vital information on Ravenclaws book here.
    How's the epilogue done?

    I didn't like it. It was in the form of a newspaper article, a sort of 'Where Are They Now?' thing, 20 years on from the final showdown.
    You said Ron dies so what happens to Hermy at the end?

    As said, her love life isnt specified. But she becomes a Healer at St. Mungo's.
    What's Luna/Hagrid/Weasley twins/Neville's fate?

    Becomes editor of Quibbler (her dad passes it on to her)/Remains at Hogwarts to this day/Weasley's Wizard Wheezes becomes multinational/Herbology teacher at Hogwarts after Sprout's death (old age she isnt killed)
    What happens to Voldy's body in the end?

    Completely obliterated by the love from locked room.
    What are the horcruxes? How does Harry find and destroy them?

    Nagini/Locket/Cup/Ravenclaws Book. Symbol on UK spine is a device that enables Harry to locate 'soul fragments' if you will, Harry can destroy them a lot more easily than Dumbledore.
    What's the deal with the mirror? How does RAB and Kreacher come into the story?

    Sirius has left an almost 'voicemail' message on the mirror, to advise him on destroying the horcrux. Kreacher has to tell the trio (on Harry's orders) about the history of the symbol and where to find it.
    What's the lies of Dumbledore chapter about?

    Neon was right about this, this is to do with the plan with Snape. I don't know if he got lucky because the Grindelwald thing isnt even close.
    What happens to all the teachers? Who's new headmaster etc?

    McGonagall is new headmistress.
    What's Harry's fate in the end? Job etc?

    Becomes an almost freelance Auror but refuses to work for the MoM
