Potter Pondering...

Has anyone else noticed that Bellatrix Lestrange has a bent wand? I wonder who came up with that idea. It really reflects her bent personality.

Also, one of my favourite lines from the new movie:

"Put it down, Bella. We don't touch what isn't ours."

I didn't notice, but that is kind of cool. The think that amused me most about the movie was the similarity between Death Eaters and petty vandals. They get into Hogwarts FINALLY and do nothing other than heckle during the Draco/Snape/Dumbledore drama and smash some windows and crockery on their way out. Was there really any point to Fenrir coming along?

I laughed at that too!

Oh no! Bella's breaking the windows!!! I'm SO scared!

It was a bit more of a to-do in the book, wasn't it? Don't really remember.

Bella was lovely, I thought. That was such a great line. And I did notice her wand--she's so creepy.

I agree about the ending. I wanted a crazy battle. It was definitely a to-do in the book, and i think it would have balanced the film better if they had done that.

I thought the silliness of this one was brilliant. I needed a little Harry Potter silliness in my life. But there should have been a battle.

I didn't notice her wand! But the actress is amazingly great. I still think Draco stole the show in this one, though. For the first time, Draco's reluctance at being what he is really shows through, and the actor did a phenomenal job. I loved the movie all around.

I suspect they didn't want to take away from the glory of Dumbledore, and that's why they toned down Hogwarts as a way of cutting time. If it had ended in a massive fight, the retrieving of the horcrux wouldn't have stuck out as much. Rather, one of the most dramatic scenes at the end, other than Dumbledore's death, is him standing there surrounded by fire and then parting said fire, and that was pretty damn amazing.

I really really loved the holding up of wands at the end though, and that destroying Voldemort's symbol. I think that was just very very lovely foreshadowing to the end of the next book.

I need just a general Harry Potter icon.

On, and Luna is so so good too. She's just too cute!

Oh Kayt, I know you haven't said much but can you please cut for spoilers! I didn't want to know about that yet :(

GAH! Sorry!

I didn't think I was spoilering, but I see now that there is some minor spoilage there.

It is cut now.

Yeah, I thought that was a great touch!
