I think the Harry/Hermione idea got started after people saw the ending of the second movie and got the wrong idea. You know, the scene where Hermione comes running into the hall after getting out of de-tox...always thought that was a terrible directing choice.

Oh, no, that idea's been floating around for ages. Read the books again, fellow. Ron and Hermione have been interested in each other for a long time...

Except in the first movie where he insults her right in front of her. But he has done a lot more to equal it out.

Bump!

Well, I saw the Harry Potter 3 movie the other day and have to say it is the best of all three. I really didn't expect to see the dementors like they were, I actually expected them to be more like the Ringraiths in LOTR instead of, well, this:


And a possible title!

Agreed, the third Harry Potter film is definately the best yet. Its directed a hell of a lot better, and although their acting still sucks, the main 3 roles are getting slightly better. It really captures the essence of the book, although they cut a heck of a lot out. And they dont even explain about Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs. That bit is quite essential to the book, as it explains why Harry's patronus forms a stag. I was disspaointed they missed that bit out, but aah well.

Also, I really didn't like the Knight Bus scene, totally different from the book, and the Aunt Marge scene was disspaointing too. The beginning of the film didn't impress me too much, but then it got going and I was happier.

I also got the feeling that I was like the only person in the cinema to have actually read the book.

This is turning into a post that should belong in the movie reviews section  wink

But anyways, best film of the 3, I cant wait for the DVD  smile

I read in a bunch of places, IT IS CONFIRMED! It will be called Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Which brings up who is the half blood prince? Something else I thought I would post:

After I read tom123's post, I decided to confirm it for myself:
   
Quote
Taken from USATODAY.com:
No word yet on when the next Harry Potter book comes out, but at least there's a title: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

"Well the door opened at last and I showed you the title of book six the genuine title, the title that will appear on the published book, the title I have been using in my head for ages and ages," author J.K. Rowling wrote on her Web site.

The British author's U.S. publisher, Scholastic, confirmed the title on Tuesday.

A previous posting on Rowling's site, listed under "Gossip," had led some fans to believe the book would be called Harry Potter and the Pillar of Storge. Rowling dismissed that title as laughable.

The only candidates for that in my mind would be Hagrid or Viktor Krum, but it will probably be someone out of left field like usual for her.

You know Harry Potter and the Lost Prophecy would have actually made a bit of sense... :P

I saw Rupert Grint's (actor that plays Ron Weasly) gcse artwork last friday, it was very good. It was on display at a local school were some of my friends were displaying a-level art. He did a very skilled animation and some paintings on canvas that were very skilled, I think stardom may have affected his ego a bit but his work seemed to have dark undertones too.

So half-blood that sounds half-muggle born but prince, ewha? since when has there been royalty involved...hmm...

Harry Potter and himself? you're right it could be Voldemort. Harry himself is three quarters magic-born since his mother was half-blood, I think.

Oops, that's what I meant, wrong word, but technically they are both wizards...I don't understand the genetics of it or how anyone can be muggle-born, maybe that's something she'll go into in the next book.

Jk Rowling said on her site that the Half Blood Prince was not Harry or Voldermort. I'm guessing it coul be Hagrid (perhaps the Half blood price of giants or something)

Harry's mum was muggle born wasn't she? I didn't get the vibe that either her or aunt Petunia's parents had magic blood. But that would still make Harry a pure blood as both his parents had magical blood. Um, I think. Not too entirely clued up on how that works  smile

One of the guys I work with reckons it could be Snape. I'm not sure I agree with him though. I thought he'd be a pure blood, what with him being head of Slytherin and whatnot. But twists and turns aren't uncommon in these books. Although he did tell me that a lot of things in The Chamber of Secrets link in to the new book. Not sure how he knows though, I think there was something on the news about it yesterday evening.

I think Harry is half blood. To be pure blood I think you have to have had totaly wizard parents for more than 3 genrations (that's what I think anyways).

Snape would be interesting as the HBP.

As for the Lost Prophecy making more sence. Well yes the readers would under stand ut it would not have much intrigue. When i first heard of the order of the phoenix I thought it would be a covert group in the miniestry of magic who tracked do teh using reincarnation magic (with Phoenix's ries from the flames and what not) but I was very wrong.

Since JK has said that the HBP is not Harry or Voldemort it shouldmake people wounder who it is, which should rise interest in the book.

Maybe it's Draco? Maybe his family isn't as pure as it is purported to be. Maybe there's been a cover up, and maybe the Malfoys have a secret!
Maybe I'm full of crap. Well, whatever.. We shall see when it comes out.
[Heh, maybe it's Neville]

It is probably not Neville as Voldermort choose to kill Harry (as he was half blood like him). It would be interesting is it was Malfoy.

I am a amature classical historian. I do know that JK Rowling is mearly using classical stories in a a more contempory setting. Howver I do still enjoy the books.

...and maybe the new DADA will survive the year for a change...    no no  I also saw that article in the NY Daily News where she said it wasn't Harry or Voldemort; I like that idea of Snape but him having been a Slytherin and a follower of V. for a bit kind of really nixes that idea. Hagrid...nah, too obvious for her, she enjoys coming out of left field. It is a male since it is PRINCE,no?

They did mention that supposedly a lot of hints as to how the series will end were given in Chamber of Secrets. I'm happy since I still liked that book the most so far but I have not a clue. Here is an odd idea though; what about Dobby? Bizarre I know but hmmm...

One more thing, off the subject a bit maybe. I really don't want to see Harry die at the end of this series.  hmpf I'm just tired of all the anti-heroes maybe. I mean if Harry dies then Voldemort wins in my book. Harry's been cursed since birth, gone through Hell and then some; to go all that way and just snuff it no matter how it happens would just mean it took V. a little longer then he planned to get what he wanted.  frown I wouldn't mind seeing Harry lose all his magic powers if it meant taking Voldemort's too...that would really piss V. off!  big grin

Harry can't die at the end, because what Harry has that Voldemort doesnt is love, and i dont think that Rowling would discredit love no matter how left field she may be.

i dont think the DADA teachers will ever last for more than a year.

Anyone questioning the "mud-blood, half blood, pure blood" I believe it goes like this.

Both parents are Muggle born your "mud-blood" like Hermione, or Harry's mother.

One parent is magical, the other is not, then your "half blood" (even if one parent is "mud" ) like Voldemort and Hagrid (sure there's a lot more)

Both parents Magical, then your "pure blood" like Draco, Harry, Ron, and few more.

I'm not sure though, it might work another way (like being three-quarters blood or something like that).

Magic is a LEARNED art, not something that you can only do if you have a magical lineage. Of course, if you have magical parents, it's just easier to fall into magical society and you don't have the fear of a muggle family panicking about their children toying with the 'occult'. Any difficulty a 'mudblood' might have with practicing magic would be purely social. Just look at Neville, anyway. His parents were wizards, apparently, but he still has a harder time at magic than Hermione, a 'mudblood.' Rather like algebra, magic might be. Only tougher, and involving moving staircases.

I was just thinking that the magic world was created to be hidden from the muggles.  I'd just find it kinda difficult to get into that culture if you didn't know it already existed...

Disagree, evillllllll.  Harry was doing magic before he learned anything about the stuff.  When he ended up on the roof of the school, when he set the snake on Dudley, etc.  I've never heard of kids accidentally doing algebra.

Valid. But, whether you have a natural predilection for working with numbers or you learn algebra the hard way, in the end it all depends on how hard you study.
And anyway, my example remains Hermione. If being a 'mudblood' had any effect on whether you can be a competent wizard, how do you explain her talent? Hard work helped her to become great.
