I thought the whole movie was good that I really didn't notice that Dumbledore was different. He didn't play that big of a part in this one. The part I really found interesting was the one of Voldemort. He turned out to be sort evilly charming. Not at what I expected.

it will probably be a good moovie, i should go see it lol

i have heard that they are pushing it with the fact that herminie granger is pretty much becoming "the next brittney spears"
Well, I do have reason to believe that NOBODY saw this coming.
->
I should also say that nobody saw it coming in the books...

But Britney Spears was attractive, for about a year, at least when I was in elementary school. I think that second picture might be just a bad shot, but she's not very attractive. :-\

Oh, and by the way, it's really obvious that Harry has make-up on in that picture. I've never seen it more obvious.

Dude, I think that second pic is Sarah Michelle Gellar's body. ;D And I love Harry's man-hands in that one too. It's definitely a crappy photoshop job if anything.

And yeah, she isn't Hollywood pretty, but I think she's a very attractive girl. And I think she is going to be very hot when she gets older.

Anyway, I think the movie was very good, and yeah they do make it appear that Hermione and Harry are getting together in the movie, but it's just to throw off the audience. It's like how LOTR made it seem like the Hobbits were going to die, but everyone who read the books knew it wouldn't happen. It really is funny how many people were asking me for info about Return of the King before they saw it. I just kept telling people Frodo dies at the end and they all believed me. Almost no one I knew has read any of these books.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

I've read every book so far and pretty much liked every single one - however after seeing the first movie some years ago I decided never ever to watch a HP-Movie again. I found it to be really dissapointing compared to the book, it's just not the same...  :-\

Same goes with every adpatation. There is no way that they can do a direct trnasfer. Mainly because of how long it is, and the only people that would enjoy a nine-hour movie with that much detail is the reader.

Believe me I would've loved LOTR a million times more if it was firectly from the book. And HP too...

I just try not to think of them like that. I think of them as artist's renditions. So I know they won't be exact. LOTR is Peter Jackson's LOTR, etc.

Trust me, if you hear about a movie coming out that's after a book, it helps A LOT if you dont read the book until at least a while after the movie comes out, otherwise the movie would be spoiled by you pointing out the millions of differences.

Also, I thought this movie was much better than the previous ones. it had less crappy and more not crappy.

For me, LOTR is the exception to the book better than film rule. The books were just too much hard wrk to read and they didnt have the same flow as the film did. I read fellowship of the Ring, then got half way through the Two towers before i gave up from the sheer tedium I was experiencing.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
