Dumbledore is dead... again

by David Haber

Almost exactly 4 years ago, as we all read the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince together for the first time, we experienced the death of Dumbledore, and this site became into being, as it was originally known as And now, with the release of the movie, we're reliving it, all over again.

I was disappointed with this film...

The comments about viewing the films and books as separate entities doesn't cut it for me. I know there are alot of features in the books that are extremely difficult to covney with film, i.e., something as simple as Harry's thoughts, which contribute so much to the books. However, cutting out crucial scenes and adding pointless ones (such as the attack on the Burrow) hardly helps the matter. J.K. gives so much brilliant material with which it was possibly to make really good films. The first two films are my favourites for two main reasons: 1) they stick relatively close to the plot lines of the books; 2) Harris as Dumbledore is excellent, whereas Gambon fails miserably (I don't think he was particularly good in Half-Blood Prince, contrary to what seems to be the majority on here).

They've made it an uphill incline for ly Hallows already...

Here is something to think about.

Why did Harry lacked the information about horcruxes in the seventh book and risked his life more than we could count? Because A.Dumbledore was . Why is Dumbledore ? Its not because of the curse from the ring, because D.Malfoy brought the eaters to Hogwarts. Why did he do that? Because his puppet Rosmerta saw A.Dumbledore leaving the school. D.Yates left that part out.

Why does Harry look for objects which are very powerful and unique as horcruxes? Because he learnt that Voldemort liked to collect items like that, and turned them into horcruxes. D.Yates left that part out also.

Wow did Harry, Ron, Hermione, Luna, Dean, Griphook and Ollivander escape Malfoy Manor? They were rescued by Dobby, who saved Harry's life over and over. We never saw those life savings in the movies.

How are we going to hold all those people and the marriage in the Burrow now its burnt down? How are we going to understand Fleur loves Bill so much that she does not care if he's scarred or not.

Although I have a question about the 6th book: Why Voldemort did not come to Hogwarts when he had the chance? He could Harry, Dumbledore, and possibly anyone else too. Don't tell me that "he questioned his powers of ing Harry" because he did not question his powers when he went tracking 7 Harry's at the same time, airborn. He sure wasn't that stupid to think of borrowing another's wand to do the job.

I'm looking forward to seeing the other movies nevertheless. I just hope that they include Neville and Aberforth properly.

I said this before the 7th book: "Endings of the books are like this: 1st one with Harry, Ron and Hermione(best friends), 2nd with Harry, Ginny and Ron(Gryffindor), 3rd with Harry and Hermione(Ravenclaw), 4th with Harry and Cedric(Hufflepuff), 5th with Harry and Sirius(Father), and 6th with Harry and Dumbledore(Teacher). We see much more of Neville in the 7th book."

I want to see an epic moment of Nagini's head flying in mid air.

Izzet, don't foget that the Malfoy Manor escapade isn't until the next book. It didn't occur in the Half-Blood Prince.

Izzet, when you say Voldemort had a chance to get into Hogwarts, do you mean when Draco managed to get the Eaters in? I would say it was simply because he feared Dumbledore. Yes, Dumbledore was seen leaving Hogwarts but still I guess he didn't want to risk bumping into him. And I don't think Voldemort dared to go after Harry again before he was sure Dumbledore was finished.

And by the way you are right-I want to see more Neville in DH movie. Yes, the Nagini scene should be fantastic. I have just watched a trailer and I must say it looked pretty epic - very dark. There was even a scene where Harry is smashing some up things in a room or the tent, it was probably when Ron left or when he was frustrated about Dumbledore. So Film Harry is finally allowed to show some real rage and anger - after OoTP and HBP showed Harry far too one dimensional. Good for Radcliffe too - he can show some of his acting ss.
