Title: Harry Potter!
Post by: marie_x on July 15, 2009, 06:11:20 AM
I just saw the new movie and didn't understand why there wasn't a Harry Potter discussion thread;

EDIT:
i realize that there is, thank you mr. search bar, HOWEVER, it hasn't been posted on in approx. two years  so i thought it was best to start a new one.


so..
how did anyone like the new film?
who reads the books?

New film was amazing.
I love the extra Bellatrix. Only bad thing about that book was the lack of her, IMO.

The books are my favourite ones ever, because they're the first thing I ever read, and are therefore the reason that all three of my cupboards are full of books.
Favourite is Half Blood Prince, least is... probably joint between the first two.
I can't bring myself to read them these days :(

I used to enjoy reading the books when I was like... twelve. The last book was pure crap. I stopped reading it about halfway through.

harry is a whiny twat in need of a kicking.
ron overacts camps it up too much
hermione needs to get laid
the only saving grace in those films are the adult cast, rickman for starters, then oldman, and Bonham-Carter.~

but im still going to take Audrey to see the new one...  ;D

Movie was missing a lot of the book.
The scene in the cave was spectacular, graphically, but there was no apparent dilemma in making Dumbledore drink the potion.
The Action was focused on more than the underlying emotions, which is where a lot of the story got lost.

And I still think Ginny Weasley is a dirty whore.

There were a lot of things left out, and circumstances were changed around.
And many things weren't explored.
I didn't like it.

And it said "Borgin and Burke" instead of "Borgin and Burkes".

I agree with Haushinka.

Post by: Chay on July 15, 2009, 11:24:56 PM
yeah, they did change a lot and left a lot out... the first 15 minutes i was fuming... but i got over it.

i <3 alan rickman with a fiery passion, so i was overall really happy... but i wish they would have had more of him in it.
in the end, i didn't cry so much when dumbledore died, but i SOBBED like a baby when snape said "how dare you use my own spell against me? i AM the half-blood prince!"  (sorry, don't want to spoil for anyone)

*APPLAUSE*  :icon_cheers:
give the man an oscar!! ;)

now really looking forward to the last two installments... i'm torn about the last book being made into two movies.. but... whatever.

PS: since the beginning, i've (obviously) been on snape's side, so coincidentally also with a lot of the "evil" side. except... malfoy was a fucking twat in this movie.

At the part with Dumbledore doing the fire spinny thing.

I have to not compare the movies and the books, otherwise I get lost in the details they leave out.

I allow the books and movies to stand for themselves as separate things.

I haven't seen it yet because my family went to see it when it came out while I was in Oxford and I couldn't go and now they don't want to see it again and the geeky chum I was banking on going with me hasn't got any money because her parents have gone on holiday for a fortnight and all my other friends think they're too cool for Harry Potter!!!! :'( :'( :'( :'(

But I have one quick question - has our Neville got much screen-time? Because I really do LOVE Monsieur Longbottom....

I enjoyed it... the end was anti climatic though in my opinion there should have been a fight...
and the first scene didn't exist
I've read all the books but im not super crazy about staying exactly with the storyline of the book, unlike my bestfriend... which i describe to people as my bestfriend loves Harry Potter (the books) the way I love the Dresden Dolls/ Amanda Palmer...

I've forgotten the plot of the book completely, but as for lacking depth - IT'S HARRY POTTER!! It's not meant to be a deep and probing look at the darkest inner workings of the human soul - it's meant to be wands and sparks and very, very famous people popping up on screen for about two minutes in a silly wig.

Haha.
The bit about a silly wig made me laugh.
What I meant by the depth comment is that it didn't go into anything.
It sort of grazed over things that happened and didn't offer many explanations.
Rather than omit a few things and explore the storyline more, they tried to jam a lot of things into the movie just for the sake of having them there.

i don't think it deviated from the plot of the book at all, really.
i think it was actually that it left things out, but the PLOT itself wasn't really changed?

It just seemed like the plot was lost.
The movie felt like a bunch of things pasted together, with a little bit of young Voldemort and Draco thrown in there.
Key points [such as The Seer Overheard, elaboration on what objects they thought the horcruxes were and Dumbledore's funeral] were missing.
I suppose that's more of just leaving things out, but I felt those were things you needed to know.
The book was mainly centered on Dumbledore preparing Harry for his journey and arming him with knowledge needed to eventually defeat Voldemort.
All the while, we're given conflicting information on Snape and Draco's character is developed.
Instead of seeing all the memories, we saw few and did not learn about Riddle's persuasive nature, his fascination with the founders of Hogwarts or his ancestry.
We also did not learn about the protection Harry has at the Dursleys' house - the reason he has had to stay there.
What everyone was feeling seemed very basic.
While Draco's internal struggle was reasonably well played in the movie, Harry's [other than romantic] feelings were pretty much absent.
The movie ended without Harry's grim realization, but rather a light note about Ron's approval of Harry and Ginny's relationship.
Romance is a part of Half Blood Prince, but it seems as though the movie spent too much time on it.
They also spend a fair amount of time changing circumstances [i.e. The murder of Dumbledore, the reason Harry went down to Hagrid's, why Harry did not help Dumbledore in the astronomy tower] and grazing over information that is important in Deathy Hallows.
I suppose that the very basic plot is the same, [horcruxes, dead Dumbldore, yeah, yeah] but this new movie seems very loosely based on the book.

This is one of my main problems with movies in general. They play out like everything needs an important romance angle in order to be interesting. Not true, and annoying when they stick it in there where it's not needed or play it up when it's distracting from other aspects of a film.

I was debating whether or not to go see it with my 8 yr old because he's afraid of zombies, but then he went with his day camp yesterday and saw it. He said there were two scary parts, but he didn't come wake me up in the middle of the night last night so I guess it wasn't too bad. Maybe we'll see it at the cheap-o theater matinee-style this weekend. I hate that movie tickets are $11 apiece.

Post by: Indja on July 22, 2009, 03:49:15 PM
Haaaaaaa I've seen iiiiiiit!!!

Fucking loved it. I screamed out loud, and the whole cinema laughed at me :( And I cried. And it made me laugh SO much more than any of the other ones - especially when Harry had that luck potion thing. Srsly, he was just stoned >.<

I know what people mean by it not going into depth on the plot and stuff - it seemed sometimes almost like one long trailer, the scenes were so short and they really were just cracking on through it. But then I don't think you can really hold that against them - they had an impossible task, trying to get SUCH a lot of story into SUCH a short amount of time. Also, I think people underestimate just how different the mediums are - it seems kind of daft to try and compare a book and a movie, even if they're dealing with the same story, because the limits and constraits are so, so different in each.

Mind you, if they miss ANY of Neville's glory in the next film, I'm suing. And he had more than one line - he also did Background Talking, Shocked Face, Sad Face and Cheering, so there.

I think they could have done a better job regardless.
Order of the Phoenix is the longest book in the series, and I was satisfied with the movie adaption.

If they didn't stick stuff in, it would be completely dry and crappy - if it was solely the main plot, it would have been incredibly boring. They need the things like the romance and the extra fiddly bits on the side, or else it's just rubbish.

Also, when are you sending my damn cookies?? Jks!

I enjoyed the Half Blood Prince a lot and would like to start reading the final book (I did not read any of the others) so I don't have to wait till the last movie to see the ending.

I'd be very grateful if you could go into detail about how the book was different in the places you mentioned and what I should know before reading Deathly Hallows.

I'd also like to know why Snape calls himself the "Half Blood Prince" unless of course it is in the last book.  I'll just read that one myself.

He called himself it because he's half-blood and his mum's maiden name was Prince, I think.

I've not read the book in AGES, so maybe that's why I didn't mind the changes that much - I was seeing the film as something almost completely separate from the books.

Indja is right about the "Half Blood Prince" thing.
Okay, I'm going to go through the chapters and tell you things that are important for reading Deathly Hallows.
[or just things that they omitted and aren't necessarily important but come up]

Chapter 1: The Other Minister
-Cornelius Fudge is no longer Minister of Magic.
-Rufus Scrimgeour is the new Minister.

Chapter 3: Will and Won't
-Harry inherited Number 12 Grimmauld Place, Kreacher the house elf and Buckbeak the hippogriff from Sirius.
-Dumbledore informs the Dursleys that Harry must return to their home one more time after this summer. The reason for this is that Dumbledore put protection on the house so that Harry cannot be harmed within it. This ends when he is 17.

Chapter 5: An Excess of Phlegm
-Arthur Weasley has been promoted as the head for the Office for Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects.
-Fleur Delacour [from Goblet of Fire] is engaged to Bill Weasley.

Chapter 6: Draco's Detour
-The wandmaker Ollivander has been kidnapped.
-In the movie, Fred and George's joke shop is introduced. The are able to pay for this because Harry gave them his Triwizard Tournament winnings of 10,000 Galleons in Goblet of Fire.

Chapter 10: The House of Gaunt
-This is Dumbledore's first journey into the Pensieve. The follow Bob Ogden, a Ministry representative to the house of Marvolo Gaunt. He lives there with his two children, Morfin and Merope. You find out that they are descendants of Salazar Slytherin, the founder of Slytherin House. Morfin is in trouble for torturing a muggle by the name of Tom Riddle. He then goes on to say that Merope fancies Tom Riddle. A fight ensues with Bob Ogden, and Marvolo and Morfin are taken to Azkaban. In their absence, Merope brews a love potion and gives it to Tom Riddle. They stay together for long enough that Tom Riddle impregnates Merope, but she stops giving him the love potion and he leaves. Merope dies a little while after giving birth to the baby. Merope is Voldemort's mother, and the father is the muggle Tom Riddle. Therefore, Voldemort is a descendant of Salazar Slytherin.

Chapter 12: Silver and Opals
-This seems relatively innocuous, but Mundungus Fletcher, a member of the Order of the Phoenix is stealing Sirius' possessions from Grimmauld Place.

Chapter 13: The Secret Riddle
-In another memory in the Pensieve, Merope takes a family heirloom [Slytherin's locket], and sells it to Borgin and Burkes.
-In the movie, you saw Dumbledore's memory of visiting Tom Riddle[young Voldemort] in the orphanage where he grew up. One thing not included is when Dumbledore finds a box of Tom Riddle's that contains possessions of other children. He collected these things as trophies. For example, if he harmed a student, he might take their toy as a trophy. Dumbledore showed Harry this memory to explain that Voldemort always takes trophies.

Chapter 16: A Frosty Christmas
-Also rather innocuous, but you find out that Lupin was bitten by Fenrir Greyback when he was young, and that's how he became a werewolf.
-There is a part in the book where Rufus Scrimgeour and Percy Weasley come to the house. What happened is unimportant, but the mention of Percy reminded me of something they left out in Order of the Phoenix - the reason why Percy has been absent from the films. In Order of the Phoenix Percy is promoted to a position where he works closely with the Minister. Arthur urged him to abandon this and stay with the Order of the Phoenix. Percy and his father had an argument. Percy told his father that he was holding the family back and was giving him a terrible reputation at the Ministry. This led to Percy moving out severing all ties with his family.

Chapter 17: A Sluggish Memory
-Dumbledore takes Harry into the Pensieve where they are looking at Morfin Gaunt's memory. He has been released from Azkaban by this time, but his father is dead. Young Tom Riddle [Voldemort] comes to his home and kills him, stealing Marvolo Gaunt's ring. [which was once Slytherin's] After he did this, he went over to his muggle grandparents house and killed them, as well as his father. He then Confunded Morfin Gaunt to make him believe that he had killed them. Morfin went to Azkaban for this and died there.

Chapter 20: Lord Voldemort's Request
-Dumbledore and Harry go into the Pensieve into a house elf's memory. Voldemort's first job out of school was at Borgin and Burkes. He was a very persuasive man, so he was often sent to collect valuable items from people. He goes to a woman's home, Hepzibah Smith, where she shows him two things that she owns: Helga Hufflepuff's goblet and the locket of Salazar Slytherin. She bought it from Borgin and Burkes shortly after Merope sold it. Voldemort was highly interested in items that belonged to the founders of Hogwarts. A few days after this visit, Hepzibah Smith was found dead, the goblet and locket missing.
-In another memory, Voldemort applies for the Defense Against the Dark Arts job.

Chapter 23: Horcruxes
-I forgot if this was in the movie, but you figure out that 2 of the 7 Horcruxes have been destroyed already: the ring and the diary. Dumbledore speculates that the remaining ones are Helga Hufflepuff's goblet, Salazar Slytherin's locket, something of either Gryffindor's or Ravenclaw's and Voldemort's snake, Nagini. Only when all of these are gone can Harry kill Voldemort.

Chapter 24: The Seer Overheard
-It comes to light that Snape overheard Trelawney making the prophecy. Snape told Voldemort about the prophecy, which led him to go to the Potter's home and kill them.

Chapter 27: The Lightning-Struck Tower
-This is in the movie, but Draco goes up to the astronomy tower and disarms Dumbledore just before Snape kills him. This may not seem important, but I'm stressing it because it is a crucial detail in the end of Deathly Hallows.

Chapter 29: The Phoenix Lament
-There was a fight at Hogwarts between the Death Eaters and the school. The Order of the Phoenix was there. Fenrir Greyback was with the Death Eaters, and he attacked Bill, severely scarring his face. Bill is not a werewolf, because Greyback was human when he attacked.

Chapter 30: The White Tomb
-Harry sort of breaks up with Ginny because he knows that he must go on a journey to find Horcruxes, and he is afraid of people targeting Ginny.


Okay, I think I've pretty much got it.
If you start reading the book and you don't understand a certain detail, I think I should be able to explain.

...and grazing over information that is important in Deathly Hallows.
I suppose that the very basic plot is the same, [horcruxes, dead Dumbldore, yeah, yeah] but this new movie seems very loosely based on the book.

I enjoyed the Half Blood Prince a lot and would like to start reading the final book (I did not read any of the others) so I don't have to wait till the last movie to see the ending.

I'd be very grateful if you could go into detail about how the book was different in the places you mentioned and what I should know before reading Deathly Hallows.

I'd also like to know why Snape calls himself the "Half Blood Prince" unless of course it is in the last book.  I'll just read that one myself.
Indja is right about the "Half Blood Prince" thing.
Okay, I'm going to go through the chapters and tell you things that are important for reading Deathly Hallows.
[or just things that they omitted and aren't necessarily important but come up]

Chapter 1: The Other Minister
-Cornelius Fudge is no longer Minister of Magic.
-Rufus Scrimgeour is the new Minister.

Chapter 3: Will and Won't
-Harry inherited Number 12 Grimmauld Place, Kreacher the house elf and Buckbeak the hippogriff from Sirius.
-Dumbledore informs the Dursleys that Harry must return to their home one more time after this summer. The reason for this is that Dumbledore put protection on the house so that Harry cannot be harmed within it. This ends when he is 17.

Chapter 5: An Excess of Phlegm
-Arthur Weasley has been promoted as the head for the Office for Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects.
-Fleur Delacour [from Goblet of Fire] is engaged to Bill Weasley.

Chapter 6: Draco's Detour
-The wandmaker Ollivander has been kidnapped.
-In the movie, Fred and George's joke shop is introduced. The are able to pay for this because Harry gave them his Triwizard Tournament winnings of 10,000 Galleons in Goblet of Fire.

Chapter 10: The House of Gaunt
-This is Dumbledore's first journey into the Pensieve. The follow Bob Ogden, a Ministry representative to the house of Marvolo Gaunt. He lives there with his two children, Morfin and Merope. You find out that they are descendants of Salazar Slytherin, the founder of Slytherin House. Morfin is in trouble for torturing a muggle by the name of Tom Riddle. He then goes on to say that Merope fancies Tom Riddle. A fight ensues with Bob Ogden, and Marvolo and Morfin are taken to Azkaban. In their absence, Merope brews a love potion and gives it to Tom Riddle. They stay together for long enough that Tom Riddle impregnates Merope, but she stops giving him the love potion and he leaves. Merope dies a little while after giving birth to the baby. Merope is Voldemort's mother, and the father is the muggle Tom Riddle. Therefore, Voldemort is a descendant of Salazar Slytherin.

Chapter 12: Silver and Opals
-This seems relatively innocuous, but Mundungus Fletcher, a member of the Order of the Phoenix is stealing Sirius' possessions from Grimmauld Place.

Chapter 13: The Secret Riddle
-In another memory in the Pensieve, Merope takes a family heirloom [Slytherin's locket], and sells it to Borgin and Burkes.
-In the movie, you saw Dumbledore's memory of visiting Tom Riddle[young Voldemort] in the orphanage where he grew up. One thing not included is when Dumbledore finds a box of Tom Riddle's that contains possessions of other children. He collected these things as trophies.

I can't get over the fact that people other than my mum fancy Alan Rickman.... He is an incredible actor though - and completely perfect for Snape.

I'm re-reading the books from PoA onwards - no point reading the first two as I kind of know them inside out and backwards and didn't like them nearly as much as the others. But it's just reminding me of why I loved them so much when I was little - as many of you know, I'm something of an obsessive person, and get hooked on things really badly, and Harry Potter was the first of these obsessions xD Closely followed by Lord Of The Rings and the Clash ^.^

I can't believe how young I was when I started reading them though - I thought I was about 11, but my copy of PoA's hardback and has "Helen, Y3" written in it, so I was at least 7 when that came out.

As an educated, fairly intelligent 40-something, I am obviously unable to figure this out,
so maybe one of you younger 'Boxers can explain something to me:

In a world of super-powerful ancient magic, where evil mastermind Lord Voldersomething battles wise Dumbledore
and his allies, masters of good magic...  how does it happen that puzzles and traps built to thwart powerful
highly-experienced wizards and witches are undone (time and time again) by a couple of pre-teen n00bz, one
of whom has only known that magic even exists for a couple of years?  ...usually after five whole minutes
or less of serious thought, and never with any particular advance preparation?

Could it be because Harry really is The Chosen One?

I was disappointed in the movie, sort of. I mean, I guess I didn't expect a lot from it, so I wasn't really disappointed, but I was not impressed. It felt like they really did skim over the whole story in order to get to the end. The only parts that felt like real-time were the love bits, which were awkward and funny, but not crucial to the plot of the overarching story. I've heard the term HP:"Degrassi Edition" batted about.

I am still skeptical about how they are going to put together this movie, but gotta say, the trailer looks awesome.
But I'm really worried about it! :-\
This makes the movie look alright, but from what I've read, the plot is going to be a little lacking.
Eh. I hope it's okay.

I think it probably could have been cut into one whole movie.

The whole point was to drag it out for as long as possible and to make as much money as they can.

I still think that yeah, it probably was a money thing but I thought it was a terrrrible idea and then after I saw it...it made sense to me. I feel like if they'd tried to stuff it all into one movie it would have been rushed and bits would have been skipped out like what happened with 'The Order of the Phoenix' and stuff. I loved it.

I think splitting it in two was to try and give enough justice to the whole book and provide as much as they logically could in movie format. Spacing the release out by 8 months is the money maker in my opinion. Holiday blockbuster + Summer blockbuster
