    you were right about the Snuffles thing- but still- when they tell it- its going to seem weird-

    since they ARE going to explain it later, of course Lupin would know how to use the map- it will be one of those things those "movie only" people will have as a clue for later- (those are weird people!)

    Oh yeah, the movie doesn't mention who the makers of the mauraders map are, which mightleave non-readers of the book confused about how he could read the map. And no mention of Sirius almost leading Snape to Lupin as a werewolf, and James rescuing him. And didn't mention why and how the Womping Willow got there.

    no wonder he kept this film so short- he left it all for later directors to add in-

    I wondered that.


    My bf bought the fourth book today cause he wanted to know what's going to happen (and he keeps telling me, just like with LOTR)

    Hmm, while I haven't seen the third flick yet, I'm already seeing a possible problem. Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but what are they going to do when the fourth and firth films get made??? Surely they aren't going to attempt cramming so much into one film, but would a Kill Bill vol1 and vol2 thing work with Harry Potter?

    Someone mentioned earlier that when warner brothers said they wouldn't do that jkr tried to get another company but couldn't due to selling the rights to warner brothers.

    They will indeed try to cram all of book 4 into one film which means it will be rubbish. I'll bet the quidditch world cup only lasts 5 mins (match and dark mark both).

    I'm actually ok with them cramming the Quidditch match- if you think about it- alot of it is description of the tent and people in the campsite- should be able to SHOW that alot quicker if at all- and after they cover the dark mark being thrown, you're already halfway through the book-

    the thing about JK wanting book 4 to be two movies is a false rumor- not remotely true- she's never said a word about it- and she certainly has never tried to get another company to make the films- she's said she's very happy with WB and changing would mean starting from scratch with new actors, sets, budgets, etc-

    But surely they would be shown in the Mirror as they were at the time of their deaths? They wouldn't have aged as Lupin has...

    Say they did do the films into two parts like kill bill....when would be a good point in in book 4 and 5 to stop? they would have to end the first part with a good climax! any ideas?

    Probably a mixture of hi, what's up, how are you?
    Yeah, I think it has been mentioned, but that was ages ago!
