[QUOTE=Insider;261691]I'm starting the 3rd movie tonight. I hear this is a good one.[/QUOTE] I think it was okay, but definitely shown too much on cable.... lol. I thought it was good, but maybe I didn't fully understand it because I never read the book. Very cool concept though. [QUOTE=tatertots;261332]Grown Ups is better than Transformers 3. But yes, I loved the movie also.[/QUOTE] Well, I haven't seen grown Ups so... haha.
[QUOTE=Dash_Vegas!;261693]Hands down my least favorite movie, think I was mostly bitter about the new Dumbledore though[/QUOTE] I really didn't notice or mind [STRIKE] Gandalf [/STRIKE] the new Dumbledore at all, but my book crazy friends do for some reason.
[QUOTE=Insider;261696]I was like who the heck is this?! lol[/QUOTE] Haha me too!! [QUOTE=cryssy19;261700]I really didn't notice or mind [STRIKE] Gandalf [/STRIKE] the new Dumbledore at all, but my book crazy friends do for some reason.[/QUOTE] That might explain it, I'm also a way bigger fan of the books, as is my sister. She and I often complain about new Dumbledore, who we describe as "a young man, dressed/costumed liked an old wizard". To this day we joke that a 3rd HP has yet to be made. Haha Also, I just googled Gandalf, I gotta show my sister this! :lol:

Haha[/QUOTE] Even as a book fan I don't get the hate for Gambon as Dumbledore. If age is really your problem, he was only 7 years younger when he took over than Richard Harris was when he played the role. I actually think that Richard Harris came off too nice for Dumbledore, especially now that we know his whole story and motives. Or as much of Dumbledore's background as we will get. Like Snape pointed out, he basically saved Harry for slaughter at the right moment. To each their own, though. I always love Gambon and think he did a great job as Dumbledore.

I mean, he was an old wizard in both shows.

Wow. Harry Potter never ceases to amaze me. It was amazing. Didn't think it could beat Deathly Hollows part 1, but it did. Amazing. It went by so fast!

When I first read the books, I had this idea of Dumbledore in my head that translated perfectly to his portrayal in the 1st two films. Having that stripped away for the 3rd film onward, was a tough pill to swallow
[QUOTE=Dash_Vegas!;261693]Hands down my least favorite movie, think I was mostly bitter about the new Dumbledore though[/QUOTE] I think after seeing all the movies now, the third one is still my favorite with the most recent one not too far behind. The Dumbledore thing didn't bother me at all. [QUOTE=tatertots;261710]Even as a book fan I don't get the hate for Gambon as Dumbledore.

Just saw Deathly Hallows Part 2 earlier tonight. I was kind of disappointed that they left out so much and skipped certain things altogether.

To be fair, it probably wasn't his fault, but in the movie I felt like Cedric didn't come off very likable at all!

Gosh darn it! Why do these movies keep making me cry?!?!
[QUOTE=Insider;262446]Gosh darn it! Why do these movies keep making me cry?!?![/QUOTE] I suggest keeping a box of tissues handy. I'm a crier at movies and I have cried watching most of them too.
[QUOTE=TheSeenScene;262443]Just saw Deathly Hallows Part 2 earlier tonight. I was kind of disappointed that they left out so much and skipped certain things altogether.[/QUOTE] I think most people who have read the book say that, but I thought it was great (I didn't read the book), and really, they can't put every little detail into the movie. Like a friend of mine was upset because she thought they didn't show enough of the "future," but that seemed like one of the minute details that didn't need stressing on compared to the rest of the movie IMO.

I mean, I feel as if you can't choose to be picky with the smallest details. Just be happy they made them to begin with. Sure, they add in some random stuff, but it's for those that need a little more explaining or just for kicks. You have to remember it was all approved by J.K. Rowling herself. That's why I try not to get picky, but I wasn't disappointed with any of the movies as a whole.

I understand not everything can be fit in so I try to enjoy what they do decide to film. And I totally get the thing about setting story lines up so non readers of the books can understand better. I have to say one thing I really wanted to see was Teddy Lupin in the end, woulda been cool to see him with Tonks' transformation ability.
I saw it again today and this time I actually saw it in 3D. It was obviously just as good, but 3D takes away something for me. I just think of how the glasses annoy me and how they make my eyes hurt the entire time and I can never enjoy it as much. Still good, but I definitely prefer 2D. 3D is overrated.
