I just finished reading the Half-Blood Prince today! Finally, I can look through all the Harry Potter threads without fear of it all being ruined.

Does Malfoy remind anyone else of Reese Witherspoon there?

No but he really creeps me out.

She actually looks far more menacing than Harry or Ron (not hard with the latter), but she's still far too young for you mate wink.gif

She's not too far off what I had in mind. She looks more sweet than I imagined. But that's the closest they've got to how I imagined a character to look since the first Dumbeldore (who was perfect, bless him. And he acted exactly how I imagined too).

The furthest off were Harry and Sirius. Gary Oldman is a great actor and everything, but I just don't think he was right for the part. As for Daniel ... don't even get me started on why he's wrong for playing Harry.

But that's just my opinion.

I definitely agree with you in many respects. For me Oldman is too good an actor to play that role, if that makes sense. Sirius shouldn't be a complex character, in fact none of the characters in Harry Potter are really 'deep'. I'm sorry but even Harry's 'issues' are so close to the surface they don't even require explanation most of the time. Sirius should have been played by someone capable, no more. Also Oldman doesn't even really look like Sirius... or how I imagined him.

You can download a Quicktime version of the new trailer here.

Just got a chance to watch it at full attention. It looks great, very very dark...I think it will take the cake up to this point. They did throw lots of spoilers in it, but I doubt the people whom have not read the book would catch them though.

Celticstar
your all going to laugh at me but i've only just read it. Dave bought it me for hospital.

It was ok but far to much lovey dovey crap and not enough gore and magic

i've got to say that i really didn't like harry at all in this book but then i realised how old he was meant to be and realised. He's a grumpy bloody teenager.

i think the last four chapters were the only bits worth reading.

just borrowed a raymond feist book off hubbie so hopefully that will be better.

Ahh, okay. I got confused for a moment there ...

Anyway, I totally agree. I thought Jo's whole writing style in that book wasn't as good as in Order of the Phoenix, and all of the characters seemed to be acting really childishly compared to the last couple of books. The ending was brilliant (but very sad sad.gif ) and I thought, Why couldn't she have written the rest of the book like that?. The whole of the love stuff just seemed out of place to me.

EDIT: Not sure if the above needed spoiler tags, but I put them in just to be on the safe side.
Raven
I didn't like Order of the Pheonix that much as I got fed up with Harry being bratty all the time.

I've only read it through the once and the thought of having to wade through it again is very off-putting.

Ahh, that's a shame. I thought it was the best one because ... well I don't know - it was just really interesting all the way through, all the characters seemed to be acting more grown-up and it was very exciting and tense at the end (but very sad. RIP Sirius sad.gif ). I thought Harry's behaviour was a little bit annoying, but perfectly justified - I mean, think about what he's been through!

I still love the ending of Goblet of Fire the best, it's brilliant!
sweetbutinsane
Luna Lovegood casting has begun! I'm considering sending in my details ... Probably won't get the part but it's worth a try.

Aww sad.gif

I don't look much like her, but apparently appearance doesn't matter too much. Well that's what a friend says. I can get the dottiness bit right though! smile.gif I'm going to send in a video - or should I say DVD?. I'm working on what I'm going to do right now. I have a few ideas ... I hope the battery in the camcorder will work ...

PS, Loads of (not brillant quality) new pics on Mugglenet

I know It happens in the book, but the thought of Daniel Radcliff in the bath scares me (I do wish Oliver wood would pop up in the quiddich world cup... wub.gif )

I'm not sure. The Luna auditiony thingy was mentioned on Mugglenet, but that's the only one.
Serafina_Pekkala
They haven't cast Tonks but it shouldn't be long. If they get someone like the girl from The Magdelene Sisters, i'll be happy.

I have heard rumour that the fabulous Imelda Staunton will play Dolores Umbridge. And someone i know reckons this is confirmed (hush hush). She is an excellent actress and has a great range and would do very well.

I'm never going to read any of the books but have quite enjoyed aspects of the films, can a proper fan explain something?

What happened to the trememdous wealth Harry had in the first film?

It's never mentioned in the following two pics.
Punkass
It's been a while since reading the books, but he still uses the cash for school supplies and such. I know at one point in PoA he was debating on buying a new broom but ended up not doing so because of funds.

*spoilers for Goblet*

He gets the big reward from winning the tournament, thus helping the twins buy their magic shop. Am I recalling this correctly?
Amazongirl
Yes that is true

He needs to support himself over books and clothes and stuff over 7 years.
In Halfblood he got a bit of extra cash too but im not saying how smile.gif
Chapman Baxter
No, I think he's still got plenty of cash; it occasionally comes up when he's embarrassed by the contrast between his wealth and the Weasleys' poverty.

Spoiler for PoA: He is thinking about getting a new broom after his old one was smashed by the whomping willow, and goes as far as looking through a catalogue, but before he can get around to buying one, Sirius sends him the Firebolt for Chrismas.

He does give them the money from the tournament, but that's because he doesn't feel he earned it - he thinks Cedric was the real winner, and doesn't want to take money that was tainted by his death. He tries to offload it a couple of times before the twins accept it. As he tells them, he doesn't need it.
