So the final part of the Harry Potter series comes out next Friday. I'm a pretty big fan, so it makes me sad to see the movie series come to an end, but at the same time i am still pretty excited. What about you guys? Thoughts, expectations, comments? And in case you've been living under a rock: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CndMW6FLEiI&feature=fvst


P.S. I did not post this in the Harry Potter thread because I'm looking for more than just two peoples opinions.

Also, Inb4 harry potter is gay/lame/stupid/for children

I'm so f***ing excited to see it. Harry Potter definied my childhood, it was to me what Star Wars was to kids/teens in the late 70s and 80s. Part 1 I saw at midnight with my friend and we loved it. This one I plan to see 7 times in theaters. (Lame, nerdy, but I'm an HP junkie) Plus I want to see that sexy Emma Watson fight some bad guys.

I thought as much. Now let's back to the topic at hand. My favourite of the books would probably be The Prisoner of Azkaban, it brings up alot of arguments against theocracy and politically fuelled violence.

got pre-booked tickets to the first midnight showing ^^

Watching the trailer, I noticed a scene where Harry says something like "Let's end this how it began: together" and takes him down a roof or somehting...

I've half decided I'm not watching it, I'm f*cking fed up of the director constantly adding things that aren't in the book when the book was just fine..

I don't mind it, I understand that scenes in books don't always translate well to film, and I kind of always knew the director would take a lot of artistic liberties with the final battle scene.

In some cases I guess so..but I remember the book being just fine for film..it just seems like a shame to me.

I was just annoyed with the first one not having a massive battle before Dumbydoodle dies.

Yeah, I did just call him Dumbydoodle bitchez.

I don't think I'll watch it - I felt the last book was a terrible end to the series.

Hey guys, remember when Harry Potter was all about this



and this




and not about this



and this?



Remember when every single Hollywood movie didn't have the saturation levels cut in half to make the movie feel "gritty" and "dark"? Remember colors?

The later films are a lot darker than the first ones, so it makes sense to me. Just my opinion though.

This is just my opinion, too, but being darker doesn't necessarily have to mean "hard to see". I remember watching Order of the Phoenix and not being able to see anything tons of times because of how dark the film was.

I mean, obviously the films are getting darker because the books are, but they're taking the lazy route and making everything darker and less saturated digitally, which makes everything harder to see and less enjoyable for the viewer.

EDIT: that being said I'm going to watch this movie like everybody else who read the books just to get it over with already and move on to the next disappointing film adaptation of a beloved children's series (coughNarniacough)

Yeah i can agree with that. Order of the Phoenix was kind of a bitch to watch, along with Half Blood Prince.

I never realised that the later films are literally darker than than the earlier ones. That's some pretty lazy flim-making right there.

Good thing the books never got progressively 'steamier' otherwise the last few films would be enshrouded in fog!
#29
Slightly off topic, but I loved in the westerns how they would shoot the night time scenes during the day and just make the film darker. You don't really get full on shadows at night.

EDIT: just watched the trailer, looks ****ing badass. I love the books and love the films, enough said really. I'll probs just wait for the DVD release as I am to lazy to pay through the nose to see it in the cinema.

I love how the newer movies look. The books got much much darker after the first two or three. So why shouldn't the movies? I can't even watch the first two movies because they are just so corny and childish in spots. The books were kinda like that too, but you don't notice it as much while reading. Whereas when you're watching a movie it's way more obvious.

The Harry Potter series is pretty good, but Harry Potter fans have been pissing me off terribly for the last year or so, so I'm slightly glad for it to end.

I'm insanely excited. I was the world's biggest Harry Potter fan when the books were coming out, and though my passion has waned a bit I'm still excited. Really bummed I couldn't get tickets to see it at midnight in time.

I think that they all went downhill from The Prisoner Of Azkaban onwards..

I loved the books, but the movies that I saw (i think it was up to the sixth one, not quite sure) were all pretty lame IMO. And I agree that the cinematography on the later movies wasn't too good either.
