Re: OotP - Spoiler - MAJOR Canon Problem

No, I was just highlighting some of the bad points, not saying the " whole " movie sucked.
And 1 persons opinion doesn't neccesarily make it so... just thinking maybe we should be grateful the films even exist, and that we can all watch it, imagine if the books were released 20 years ago, the films would be lame.

And... I was asking people to be fair when it comes to comparing the two very different types of medium, it's unfair to say the movie wasn't canon this and canon that, how the hell would you expect anyone to be able to fit it all in??? ( dont think even dumbledore could do it ). The fact that some mistake's were made is irrelevant, the people involved in the process of making the film have more important things to worry about than making sure the right spells are used ( Lunas levicorpus ) or whther the veil looks how people wanted it to.

For those who say " 3 or 4 hour films would be better " get real. And get a life.

Least it was better than G.o.F.

Re: OotP - Spoiler - MAJOR Canon Problem

Personally, I didn't like the movie very much.

First, why is Harry's Patronus .. formless? It's not a stag!

Second, what happened to Mundungus? I wonder how they're going to deal with that when the movie DH comes out (for the locket part)

Third... I was looking forward to seeing Mrs. Black's portrait.. but not there. No cleaning out rooms at Grimmauld's place, either.

Fourth... what was the whole Voldemort-at-King's-Cross about??

Fifth.. no prefects.. kinda sucks, since I was hoping Harry would feel like Dumbledore didn't trust him.

Unhappy My opinion

I hated and loved the movie at the same time. They just skimmed the surface of exciting parts and slowed way down when they were alone talking. And the final fight was rediculous. Where was the purple shield and the gong sound and the magical bretheren. GAMBON is NOT Dumbledore! I wish Richard Harris was with us. Finally, the three have great chemistry as actors and will always be the characters in my mind. But they suck at acting. Plain and simple. They may have looked the part at 11 but now there's more to it I don't think they have. I'm also jealous at their $50 million five years younger than me.

Good point above.

You should really tone down the furstration.
We all who say the movie sucked, have a good life, and plan to keep it that way.
How real we are, or at least I am, is totally irrelevant.
It is all about opinions. Everyone is entitled to it.
Have you heard of the Lord of the Rings?????
The books were written more than 20 years ago, for your information.
The movies WERE 3+ hours, for your information.
And they were a huge hit.
If you dont want to see 3 hours + movie, it is totally fine with me.

BUT DONT TELL ME TO GET A LIFE........ BECAUSE I HAVE ONE, AND A REAL ONE.

Re: OotP - Spoiler - MAJOR Canon Problem

Whatever, the fact remains, those who want an exact canon replica, are deluded, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. So, get over it. Also it's " Frustration " not " Furstration " honestly, if you want to slang it with me, at least spell your words properly.

Oh..and...that whole L.O.T.R. thing... that's exactly what I meant. So the books WERE written 20 odd years ago, and it has taken modern technology UNTIL NOW to be able to make a satisfactory film out of the material, So, thanks, for seeing it like me.

Re: OotP - Spoiler - MAJOR Canon Problem

Oh... Mr. so smart is now picking on typos.... huh?
Took you long enough to read it.....

Why are you getting so itchy? Dont you get the idea....
You dont have to like my opinion.
But that doesnt mean I will change it. I didnt like to movie, and I presented the idea of not liking it. You are the one who is jumping up and down. Calm down and have a beer on me. No need to raise the blood pressure.
