    Just read through this thread after finally having seen it! I predicted correctly the place they would finish at Tbh it was a no brainer though, as that's really the only place the action dies down. Loved Dobby though, and his final words :cry2: Loved the dance scene; really warmed to Daniel Radcliffe in this film. Maybe because he's stopped grinding his teeth like an idiot! Thought it was brilliant in staying true to the book; even quoting it word for word in some cases! Obviously some glaring errors (Phineus Nigellus' portrait?!) but I didn't notice them while I was watching, so it wasn't too distracting! I think my sister was sat watching for the whole two hours with a massive grin on her face, so it's been a success on that front! Just got to wait eight months now

    I'd rather read Harry Potter than Dickens any day of the week. Dickens bores the crap out of me. I think you'll find that in a hundred years time Harry Potter will most likely be treated as a scholarly text as it reflects a great deal of relevant societal concerns. Please don't just mention old books to try and appear intelligent, it makes you look stupid :fyi:
    Books that sell =/= good books.
    Harry Potter reflects a great deal on relevant societal concerns? Yeah we all have our own dragons to deal with!
    Get a grip lady.

    harry potter makes references to:

    racism
    elitism
    corruption in politics/power in the hands of the wrong group
    censorship
    i'm sure there are more, but i honestly can't think of them right now.

    I was disappointed not to see Harry and Dudley shake hands like they did in the book before the Dursleys left to go into hiding. It was quite a poignant event in the book as it was really the first time any of the Dursleys truly acknowledged Harry and/or showed any siggns of affection. I can understand wanting to keep the tone serious and get to the action quickly but that was one scene I was really looking forward to seeing and a little peeved it wasn't included.

    I've given a conference paper on precisely this topic. Books that sell speak to something in the public consciousness, which is why Harry Potter is already considered as an academic text. Doesn't bother me if you can't see that though, and it doesn't stop the film being freakin' awesome.

    Incidentally, is it me or has Ron (Rupert Grint) got a bit buff?

    Yeah! And I can't relate to Lord of the Rings - I don't even like jewellery! And what the hell is so great about Animal Farm - it's just a load of animals on a farm!

    Saw it yesterday...I'd say it met my expectations (which weren't stupidly high). Dobby stole the show. :adore: :rip:

    When he made that speech.. "DOBBY HAS NO MASTER. DOBBY IS A FREE ELF!" Everybody started clapping and cheering, hahaha. :congrats:

    The film made me love the bad characters even more. Voldy, Draco, Wormtail and Bellatrix :heart:

    Yeah I've watched a couple of the older ones since and it's reminded me how comparatively faithful this one actually was.

    Did the actor playing him not cone back?

    I remember believing that I'd go Hogwarts when I was 11 or something. Hard times.
