I trust nothing that spells Hermione's name as Hermionie.

Also, that's a dickish thing to do, booze. Next time you're looking forward to something I'll be sure to ruin it.
silly nutmeg, he doesn't look forward to things.

Everyone who is smart would read the first two words and realise it's spoilers... everyone who isn't smart enough complains.

Or if you're like me and you read ridiculously fast you can take in the first half of the poster in seconds before you have a chance to look away.

Peripheral reading ftw.

More like for the loss in that case. And it has nothing to do with looking away, more with the brain processing the informations fast enough for you to realise to stop reading.

I read that fast too.

I didn't really find that as a spoiler though cause it was already in the books so therefor should be common knowledge. But I'm weird like that.

I've only read the first four books and seen the first five films (and plan on seeing the rest soon), but I read that whole thing and didn't really care at all.

I guess I just don't really care about any of the characters enough to care what happens to them (which is why I haven't had any real desire to keep up with the series at all). Knowing in advance won't affect my enjoyment of the films.

I've read 1-6 and seen all the movies except for this newest one. I used to be a big HP fan but I stopped really caring because the movies were getting worse and I just grew out of it. However I have gotten so much crap from friends and my boyfriend for not reading the 7th book that I have no choice but to read it. Honestly, I just don't care anymore yet they get so pissed if I start talking about the book with them because I didn't read it. I hate it.

I didn't know that Voldemort Arrested Development'd him in the woods before he ended up in King's Cross station actually.

Not everyone has read the books. Therefore it still counts as a spoiler.

To be honest, that's like if we had a discussion about Fight Club.  Not everybody has seen the film.  To be fair though, I was clearly being a dick for no raeson; Bend-err did spoiler tag his image after it got brought up.

Well, if you look at the times of the movies:

1: 152 / 159 minutes (extended edition)
2: 161 / 174 minutes (extended version)
3: 142 minutes
4: 157 minutes
5: 138 minutes
6: 153 minutes
7.1: 146 minutes
7.2: 130 minutes

You can see that 7.2 is by far the shortest (44 minutes shorter than the extended of 2), so there is hope that a lot of scenes were shot and just excluded from the theatrical release.

I could have sworn that the run time of 7.2 was 2h30minutes when I read it online.

Either way, it's not the length but what they do with the time. They did well enough with the movie that it would make sense to people who haven't read the books. Obviously we didn't get the huge speech scene with Harry and Voldemort in the final battle, but as much fun as that was to read, it might not have looked great when they shot it.

Who knows.

Absolutely. He completely stole the show at times.

This was also the first movie that I actually liked Dan Radcliffe as well, normally I find he plays the whiny part, but he did it justice this time around.

And of course, Evanna Lynch was wonderful as Luna as she always is.

I have to admit, I was prepared to hate it but it was very well done. Even the terrible fanfic-esque ending. Ron being that much fatter made the entire cinema erupt in laughter.

When the new one finally comes out on DVD or such, I'll have to download all 8 movies and marathon them, just to judge their place in cinema history.

Ron's potbelly had the whole cinema on my end giggling as well, I liked the addition, to be honest. Although Ginny's hair is best left unmentioned.

To be perfectly honest, I didn't think it was too awful. I mean, it's actually a little way into the future, isn't it? I just assumed that wizards a few years into the future have terrible hair.

Ginny's hair is more of an offense because of her life after Hogwarts.  I cannot imagine a person with her career having hair like that.

I can think of quite a few sports correspondants in the UK who have awful, awful hair, actually. In addition, Lee Jordan's got those dreadlocks, and he's the school Quidditch commentator for most of the time period covered by the books.
Except when Luna does it, which I was slightly disappointed wasn't given any attention in the films. I mean, anytime Luna's onscreen she absolutely steals the show, and her little quirks are just fantastic. It does seem as though her idiosyncracies were slightly toned down from the book version in HBP and TDHI and TDHII, but overall I can forgive the filmmakers for that. I just wish that they'd made a little more use of her in general.

So where was I? Oh yeah. It might well be that unusual or downright bizarre hair is a prerequisite for any job involving giving opinons or updates regarding Quidditch. Possibly.

She became a correspondent after playing for the Holyhead Harpies, which she retired from when having children.  So yes, it is too much of a helmet head for someone who spent most of their time at the Quidditch Pitch.

You're right. Nobody would ever do something like change their hairstyle once they're no longer playing a sport that renders their chosen style impractical. People's hair is made of stone, and the way they wear it never changes. Ever.

It is UNLIKELY that a person who chooses to go into an athletic career, and everything that that says about the person, would suddenly change their hair style to as she had it.  Her personality would not have overtly changed from athlete to mrs. cleaver.  Changing her hair from a pony tail isn't the issue here - its the implication of a change of the person.

I think you're reading too much into it. Wizards in the future get terrible hairstyles, and people do change over time y'know.

Speaking of which, I thought that the only one who really looked out of place as their older self was Tom Felton. The beard just looked... dodgy.
