Hey all! Been away for the holiday- Snowed in Boston, was glad to get back to NYC in time for tree lighting!
Book4- I heard they are doing it in one movie- I think it will be long, but worth it- I dont understand why they don't bring back the old fashioned intermission- Gone with the Wind and all those old musicals always had built in intermissions so people could get up and stretch, go to the bathroom, etc- I didn't think the first two were terribly long- and think of all the stuff they can cut out- all of Privet Drive, skim over the intro to the World Cup (instead of walking around for four chapters and buying trinkets, they could just go watch the game- they could shorten up the ball by alot- they can cut out alot of parts where Harry is just thinking- I thought they could have made the first two a little faster paced-
I googled pictures from #3, and either Rupert grew or they put lifts in his shoes, cause he looks much taller and ganglier- closer to what I imagined-
it annoys me to death that Radcliffe's eyes are blue in the movies- and that his hair is so well combed- but other than that I think he was very good casting- and he was NOT cast because of his parents- of whom I htink only one is in the movie business- actually they almost wouldn't let him take the part because of the ensuing popularity-
sorry- know this was a response to an old post but I was behind a bit- JK apprived the change to Sorcerer's Stone for the US editions because the publisher told her American children didn't know the whole Flamel story and wouldn't understand the title as connected to a movie about magic- which is true, but I dont htink a good enough reason- anyway- she said if she had the choice to make again, she wouldn't change it, but it was her first book, she hadn't hit it big yet-
I'm reading HP book 5 again, and realised that I must have passed over or not paid much attention to a part in the beginning. It's probably been mentioned before, but here goes. You know when Harry is behind the bush, hears the crack, and then bangs his head on the window, his uncle grabs him by the neck. Then when the pain at the top of Harry's head gave a really nasty throb,"his uncle yelped and realeased him as though he had released a nasty electric shock. Some invisible force seemed to have surged through his nephew, making him impossible to hold".
What caused this to happen? Did he have an invisible shield or something?
I am reading the part when they are in the department of mysteries. Remember when they first walk into the room with the veil? as soon as they get in, they find the veil is falpping, like someone just went through it. Then only harry and luna hear the voices, and they were the only ones to have had or seen a death. We already knew this, but who had gone through the veil, or y was it moving if u can't go through is without dying? Also, hermoine was only one who seemed to think it was dangerous.
Also, when they look at the prophecy, it says S.P.T to A.P.W.B.D, do we know what this stands for? because S.P.T stands for sibll (p?) treelany, and A.P.W.B.D stands for Albus Percival Wolfric Brian Dumbldore. Did we already know this or did i figure it out?
And when harry wants to take down the prophecy, neville tells him not too, like he knows something bad would happen. So wait... taking it down if it is not ur's makes u go crazy right? So maybe bellatrix could have tortured nevill's parents to go and get the prophecy, hoping they would find out wheter it really meant harry or neville, and since it was not about them but maybe about their son, they could not touch it! So maybe the prophecy really does affect neville!! am i making sense?
yes i thought about it... seems possbile
