    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Trailer

    Now Online: The Full Trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - The Leaky Cauldron

    Released yesterday.

    All I can say... is... @[email protected]

    DO. WANT.

    I am excited for IMAX+3D :D

    p.s. If there is already discussion of this somewhere that isn't an ancient thread (I tried searching) then feel free to cast Aveda Kedavra on this thread.

    I never read any of the books. What was spoilerish the fact that the blonde headed douche is a bad guy?

    I'm kinda iffy about the movie though as they've pretty much butchered the last couple of movies compared to the books.

    Do people seriously still go to movies based on books and expect them to completely live up to, if not surpass, the book? Really?

    Just enjoy it for what it is, and you wont be so disappointed.

    ^this (never done that before) I hate when people get all butt hurt about the story they read when they were 13-14, that changed there lives has been made into some piece of crap feature.

    It happens over and over again, so just dont go watch it, and save yourself the disappointment, or appreciate the movie and the book seperately for there respective mediums.

    (Same goes for video games, anime/manga, animated TV series converted to movies)

    I don't think anyone expects movies to completely live up to books. Of course they have to cut certain scenes and shorten others. That's what book->movie conversion does. The problem is, the last few movies have been butchered monstrosities, vaguely resembling the books.

    The first three movies were excellent-- they were. However, since the 4th, they have systematically:

    (1) Turned Hermione into a whiny bitch who, between sobs, manages to shout "Oh, Harry!" That's all she does in the latest movies. She went from brainy genius, integral to the trio's endeavors, to the bitchy damsel in distress who cries people to death.

    (2) Left out entire plot points and characters, key to the development of the books. Where was Ludo Bagman? Where the hell was Dobby? Has Kingsley Shacklebolt even had a line? What about S.P.E.W.? Need I go on?

    (3) Just left out the house elves, without explanation, messing up the movies and making their plot a contrived horror; and further marginalized Hermione's already 1 dimensional movie character. Dobby alone had so many important points in the story after the 2nd book, that I don't know how they're going to even make the 7th movie. Not to mention Winky, and all the other house elves in the kitchen.

    (4) Dumbledore's new actor. I just... I... How... What were they thinking? Who the fuck is this, and why is he destroying the single most important character in the books? Dumbledore is now a loud(as opposed to soft spoken,) unsympathetic hippie who has anger management issues. Bad anger management issues. He throttled Harry in the 4th movie. What the hell.

    Spoiler: show
    Seriously, I can't wait to see Dumbledore get killed by Snape, thanks to this new actor.


    I have a thousand more things that they could have fixed in the movies, possibly at the expense of their precious hour-long-fight-scenes-that-were-two-sentences-in-the-books, if you want them.

    I just hope they don't censor the Sectum Sempra scene with Draco.

    Good God, if the movies annoy people so fucking much, DON'T WATCH THEM!

    Personally, I loved the books, and I loved the movies so far.

    It's kind of hard to do that if you are a fan of the books, I personally like the books a lot more because of the things we miss on screen. The only peeve I truly have is how many fucking times they say "Harry Potter" in this mystified voice like motherfucking new alien life had just been found. They have to at least do that over 100 times per movie, I am expecting no less of HBP.

    You know, I'm not one for Harry Potter movies, but that looks really epic actually. That was like LOTR-scale epic.
