View Full Version : Harry Potter Mania
10th July 2007, 09:20 AM
This month is the pinnacle of PotterMaina worldwide,
With the release tomorrow or the 5th movie -Harry Potter and The Order Of The Pheonix and the final book on July 21st (my birthday!!!!!).
I am disgustingly excited over it all, My name is Tim and I have been a Potter Addict since the release of Goblet Of Fire.
Is anyone else joining me on the bandwagon or is everyone sick of hearing about the boy wizard????

I've read the first three books, and seen the first two movies. I'm kinda waiting until all of the movies are out then I want to see them all in a marathon! That would be hot.
My brother and his wife have booked a suite at a resort in the Blue Mountains the weekend the book comes out and they're buying two copies and reading away. that sounds like fun!

How can you wait that long, the last film is planned for 2010, thats ages away, i couldn't wait that long would wet myself, but will be defo watching them all in one big go when they all come out, might even buy all the books and read them all one straight after the other!!!! I know I'm a nerd and i accept that!!!

Good things come to those who wait.
I think I pretty much know all the storylines anyway!
10th July 2007, 10:35 AM
I can't stand the movies and I won't be reading the books. Harry Potter is not for me.

Why not? Give in to your inner child.
10th July 2007, 10:52 AM
i think i'm going to have to start a Keep the Mountains a Potter Free Zone campaign.... the local bookshop is apparantly bringing a steam train full of kids up for a potter day.......... god help us all!!!!!
10th July 2007, 10:53 AM
Go On robbie, you'd be surprised!!!!!
10th July 2007, 11:05 AM
Think of the poor children Burgjo....the children!
10th July 2007, 11:11 AM
nope, tried the first 2 movies, they failed miserably to excite me.. I'll stick to my LOTR, Star Wars and Transformers thanks..
10th July 2007, 11:34 AM
children........ now you bring that up i'm definatly starting the anti campaign!
10th July 2007, 11:36 AM
I'll start a petition that the Hogwarts Express should drop the kids off at your house and you can read to them...
10th July 2007, 11:42 AM
the first 2 movies were pants really compared to the newer ones, i love Hp and even i HATE movie 2 and book 2!!!
10th July 2007, 12:10 PM
Nooooooooooooo.......... this is definatly not a child friendly zone - esp if they come with harry potter books.......... you're just evil tim!
11th July 2007, 02:32 PM
i used to work in marketing and one of the books i had to plug constantly - HARRY FREAKIN' POTTER.
and i haven't read a single one. nor have i seen the films.
i used to make children in schools do harry related colouring in and drawing competitions. and then i'd pick out the worst ones - the ones that had me weeing my pants they were so bad - and then i'd take them home and show all my friends.
i am not child friendly.

i know the cinema tonight will be filled with kids but i hope for their sake that they are quiet
wonder if this one will get a round of applause like the transformers movie did last week....
11th July 2007, 02:39 PM
probably will be - most adults wouldn't be seen dead at a harry potter movie ;-)
11th July 2007, 02:43 PM
you'd be surprised!!!!!

What's the best Harry Potter book/movie for us novices?
12th July 2007, 07:17 AM
Well as with anything, always start at the beginining
12th July 2007, 07:34 AM
Saw the movie last night!!! Was brilliant, the acting and effects are all much much better.
It's kinda been hacked to fit to just over 2 hours but they still leave a lot of stuff in.
The end fight between Voldemort & Dumbledore is brilliant, am defo gonna go the Imax now just so I can see that last 20 minutes in 3D!!!!
13th July 2007, 07:29 AM
I thought it wasn't the best one in the series at all. The left so much of the good stuff out.
Effects were ok, but I left the cinema feeling a bit just, you, know, midly entertained.
13th July 2007, 09:33 AM
I agree with Robbie. I feel sorry for all the trees that get cut down for these boring Harry Potter books. I wonder what phase will take Harry's place now the last book has been written.
13th July 2007, 10:41 AM
This is not too good, talking about the lukewarm reviews for the movie.
13th July 2007, 08:27 PM
I thought the fulm was greysh
Imelda Staunton was amazing and we all got a good cackle with Helena playing Bellatrix
I think it suits the book very well - which is essentially a pivotal book in the series. It sets things up so well for the remaining 2 books.
I for one can't wait for next saturday - i'll be locking myself in my room with a pack of marlboro lights and a few bottles of wine...not that thats any different to most of ther nights:P
20th July 2007, 03:30 PM
So who's going to be lining up tonight to buy the book?
20th July 2007, 03:38 PM
I won't be lining up for the book....not in this weather. I'll make my b.f. do that!
(my gawd, imagine the horror of being shown on the nightly news with Tracy Spicer shoving a microphone up your nose and asking how many hours you've waited like a loser in the cold for a children's book...) Presto! Social Death.
I did see the most recent HP movie. It was good, but not brilliant. Book number 5 wasn't the greatest book of them all anyhow, so it was a harder book to adapt to film I reckon. I'd give it a C+.
21st July 2007, 12:59 PM
That's right baby! 9am this morning, my b.f. got the new H.P. book for me. WOO HOO!
21st July 2007, 05:42 PM
I found out the ending and that's about all I need to know now!
