    I did like Neville/Luna, even though it wasn't in the books, they seem to fit so well together. But I also wished they'd included more scenes in the Prince's Tale. It was pretty much two scenes of them as kids, then Snape as an adult with Dumbledore. I'd have liked to have seen the bit where Snape ruins their friendship. My friend who hasn't read the last book in order to prolong the surprise came out saying "Well, what a ***** Lily is!" It's made Snape into a saint when he really isn't. He's very brave, but it doesn't excuse the fact that he's also horrible and ahs done horrible things.

    Yeah, the one that sticks out was where Snape accused Lupin of being a werewolf and how he slept outside in Gryffindor Tower waiting for her.

    Absoluteley. I'dve also loved the scene of them on the Hogarts Express - it would have showed Snape's flaws for disliking Mudbloods and his love of the Dark Arts, showed James and Sirius making friends, and the start of Snape and James' mutual enmity. Eveb if they didn't have time for lots of footage, just maybe Lily unintentionally giggling at one of James' jokes to Snape would have been enough. Instead we get flashbacks to Snape being mean to Harry with chants of "Your father was a swine!" I loved it, but it could have been done better.

    A wand can't kill it's master.

    Harry was the master of the Elder Wand.

    :. the Elder Wand can't kill Harry.

    They may have taken some liberties with it but i think that's a good enough explanation for the shields working on Avada Kedavra.

    My flat-out opinion on this is, if they stuck to every detail in the book and each movie was 7 hours long I would watch it! I mean come on Order of the Phoenix was a total screw-up, did you see the things they missed out on that one!?!

    I know everyone is having a bit of a cry and whinge about things being left out. But just wait until there is an extended edition at least once every 2 years for the next 20 years. Then you will probably get the full film you have been waiting for. LotR style :sigh:

    Yes. Order of the Phoenix is my least favourite film; but also my least favourite of the books. I did enjoy the Prince's Tale, I'd have just enjoyed it more with more scenes; but hey, we can't have everything!

    I watched it today and I cried nearly all the way through! Especially when all the teachers started shooting spell into the sky to create the protective dome/layer. Amazing. Loved it. I didn't like that they changed stuff though. Since when do they fall of a cliff? And I can hardly call it 3D... Should have saved my 3 quid! But I loved it possibly my favourite harry potter movie ever. Loved the epilogue but most of all I love Ron in this movie!

    The first disappointment for me was when the items in Bellatrix's vault stopped replicating, after that they just kept on coming.

    I agree. He usually bring some essence of comedy but there wasn't much in this one. Him and hermoine were great and that kiss made me think FINALLY!

    Favourite line: I've always wanted to use that spell.
    Hilarious and great.

    Was disappointed from the forbidden forest onwards (excluding the King's Cross scene). Epic in the books but muted in the film. Ridiculous moments include:
    1. Voldemort's stupid scream when he uses avada kedavra in the forest
    2. Voldemort awkwardly hugging Draco
    3. Voldemort chasing Harry around the castle
    4. Neville blowing up the bridge
    5. Bellatrix and Voldemort's death
    6. Prolonged snake scene
    7....8..

    The end battle was still good but I really loved the finale of the books (apart from the epilogue which I think is contrived).

    Ok, I must admit, it was OK, but they left teensy details out that pissed me off... i.e in the book, Crabbe's Fiendfyre destroyed the Diadem, however in the movie it was the basilisk fang, not much emphasis was put on Molly's duel with Bellatrix, Harry and Voldemort's duel occurred in the Great Hall however in the film it was the courtyard, Ollivander had no idea what the Deathly Hallows were in the book, but in the film he explained them to Harry, in the book, the contents of Bellatrix's vault kept replicating and didn't stop, unlike the movie, there was nothing about Harry and Voldemort jumping off a cliff . I also wanted a longer McGonagall-Snape duel... I don't know... do y'all agree?

    I didn't like how they dealt with Fred's death in like 8 seconds I kinda get the Ollivander thing, was almost a 'memory refresher' - afterall there was a massive break But I disliked how the duel was in the courtyard (wtf) and all the dramatic cliff ****.

    Of course the epilogue was **** but it was in the books too Although I thought A.S Potter (I refuse to speak his ridiculous name lol) was sweet.


    I thought the scenes with Snape's memories were absolutely fantastic though, was so glad as it was a favourite part of the book <3

    2. Voldemort awkwardly hugging Draco
    lmao I could not stop laughing at that, and neither could anyone else in the cinema


    (Original post by Snavej)
    Yes! This p'ed me off sooo much! Especially when Harry was like "i dont care what happened between you and your brother" i was like what?! You had a real issue with this in the book because you didnt know Albus properly and eeughhh!

    This annoyed me as well Also the whole Remus/Tonks kid - I SWEAR they never said she was preggers in the first half and then Harry is all "But what about your Son?!"

    They didn't show Teddy, Harry's 2 other kids (speech anyway) or Fleur and Bill's kid which was a bummer.

    Just got back and, for the most part, I loved it, but my enjoyment of the film was somewhat ruined by the guy sitting next to me who seemed to have nasal issues. I decided to watch it as a film, not a portrayal of the book. The only disappointing parts, for me, were...

    Spoiler:
    Show
    Like everyone has already said... Voldemort, Bellatrix and Nagini all shattering after their death - Weird.
    How it was really difficult to hear Snape say 'look at me' (not sure if that was just the cinema though).
    The ending - lack of acknowledgement of Voldemort's death etc.


    I actually liked the epilogue, more so than in the book anyway.

    Spoiler:
    Show
    I thought Hermione looked really nice. I know they didn't look really old but it was better than I was expecting. Draco looked a bit too old though.


    Oh and I prefered Mrs Weasley's famous line in the film to the book. I know everyone seems to love it but when I first read it it was a bit weird for me.

    Loved the Prince's Tale So glad as it's my favourite part of the book, probably the whole series.
