Thread: Harry Potter and the Many Fans

  1. #11
    fyi, the next movie's release has been delayed to July 2009.
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?

    Either that, or they'll wait a few months after the second part of Deathly Hallows comes out to release both parts on DVD. In which case, fans will be waiting a long, long time.

    I am not happy about the delay in release of Half Blood Prince. Especially since I saw the trailer and it got me excited. And now there's a whole year of waiting left rather than a few months.

    That reminds me of audience reactions to "The Empire Strikes Back" when it first came out in 1980. The way the filmmakers left Han Solo frozen in carbonite at the movie's end had some theatergoers grumbling about having to wait three years to see what happened next. More than once, I heard people mutter phrases like "rip-off" and "that stinks" as they exited the cinemas.

    That does stink. At least I do know what's happened next. I just want to see it on screen and what they leave out and keep in. After all, Order of the Phoenix was very different from the book.

    Uh...even out of Harry Potter forums I cannot stay away from it...I tell you, it is an addiction!

    Well, I've been reading the books since 2000, and my favorite ones have to be Deathly Hallows, closely followed by Goblet of Fire and Prisioner of Azkaban.

    As for the movies, the one I could watch and rewatch ad infinitum is PoA...despite the odd-looking werepoodle Lupin.

    Anyways, it is less than a month till the new movie comes out! Is anyone going to watch it on the opening night?

    My sister's trying to find a theater with a midnight showing to see it with friends.... I'm not quite as frantic. I'd like to see it, but I don't need to run all over town.

    I have to say I've never gone to a midnight showing, but considering there are no more midnight book releases to go to, I might join in the movie craze. :P

    Well, I really liked the series. Sure, Death Hallows kicked a bit below the belt with the casualty list (Lupin, Tonks, Moody...), but still, it was good.

    Best part about Deathly Hollows:
    Lord Voldermort's classic villian death: Death by Legal Loophole

    The Loophole: The Elder Wand's pickiness about who it's master is.


    Anyways, the movies are doing the books justice, and keep close enough to the plot that it's definitly Harry Potter. There we some disapointments (Ron not going for Keeper in the 5th, the World Cup & Fred/George/Bagmen plotline, the Joke Shop planning in 4/5, skipping most of the Quidditch season and explanation of the Marauders in the 3rd, etc.), but still, the movies have impressed me enough so far, and sure the action/fight sequences depart from the book a few times (especially in Order of the Phoenix), but they did a good job in making it theatically great while maintaining the plotline.

    Infact, I liked the little addition of Moody smacking his walking stick down and blowing the Death Eaters away. My comment on that bit? HEADSHOT!

    I suppose I'll go and see the new "Harry Potter" movie when it comes out. I've seen several of the previous films, and I like them. Even though I mostly read science fiction and nautical fiction, I also enjoy the occasional fantasy film. And the HP films "fill the bill" quite nicely.

    Me, too. I have not read the books. I do understand that the movies do differ a fair bit from them, but keep the general plot on track.
