    If the Killing Curse is unblockable, why didn't Death Eaters use it more?

    You mean instead of torture? Torture is more fun to them, I suppose.

    What bothered me in the last movie during Freddie's death scene, is that Ginny is just standing there doing nothing, when everyone else in her family is bawling their eyes out.

    Another reason to hate her wretched, bland, awful character.

    I agree, the film Ginny was awful.

    I don't think so. Add this with her remarkably bland, and mary-sueish (Yes, I said that.) personality... Ugh.

    "Since we launched Pottermore, our one million Beta users have given us lots of amazing feedback, and we?ve been collecting their thoughts and comments so that we can make Pottermore the best experience it can be before it opens to everyone.

    After looking closely at all the information that we've gathered, we have decided to further extend the Beta period so we can improve Pottermore before giving more people access. This means the site will not be opening to new users in the immediate future, but please know that we will open registration as soon as we can. - via insider.pottermore.com"

    But at least DHP2 is coming out in a little overa week! :D

    The trouble with Pottermore, as it appears to me right now (could be wrong), is that it will amount to state-sponsored fandom... rather than organic beautiful fandom. The stated aim is to hand over the franchise to the fans, but it will surely be handed over with chain mail wrapped around it.

    With this thread near the top I expected to see people in here mourning/remembering the loss of Lily and James Potter 10 years ago yesterday.

    I actually saw that on Facebook and some random news site like MSN or Yahoo.

    I wish they'd give a date for when Pottermore will open :( It's probably not ready to handle so many people.

    And mourning Sir Nicholas Mimsy-Porpington. But also celebrating the day that the trio (H, R and H) united.

    :D

    It's hard to believe that the "19 years later" scene takes place in 2016. Not too far off!

    DVD tomorrow!


    Then WB is going to put all the Harry Potter films into "the vault," like what Disney does with their films.

    I don't think that that is exactly what will happen. I think that the films will be readily available, but only as a boxed set. After all, the Harry Potter films are alot like Lord of the Rings, in that they tell a single integrated story that unfolds over 16 hours. Watching Harry Potter is really more like watching a miniseries with insanely high production values, than watching a movie.

    Except that, you know, the LOTR films are much more consistent, are (in many important ways like the atmosphere and the "feel" of the original books) much more faithful to their source material and the quality of production is about 1000% higher than the HP films.
