Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

Harry Potter is terrible I can't beleive anyone can make money off of those books.

Harry Potter is not epic

not dark what so ever

it does not feel like you are taken to another world it feels like I could take a plan there and be there in a matter of hours.

Harry Potter should really be a Warlock, a wizard refers to a mortal with the ability to do  magic

The movies are even worse there are no good design elemements,  I would rather watch the Star Wars Holiday Special

I could keep on going all day, but the one good thing is John Williams did the soundtrack for the movies but not enough to redem them.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I'm not one to defend the series, but the wizard/warlock idea is a bit of. He is mortal, as he can die. He cannot be a warlock because he did not sell his soul to a demon. The female practitioners of magick, however, should not be called witches.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

But yeah, I felt cheated during the Snape's Worst Memory scene, not enough of adorable young Snape, not even a single glance of Lily! Hopefully they'll have the whole scene on DVD.
But yeah, Bella was awesome, as well as Lucius!! Sirius's death was a laugh though, I hated the chessy "everything goes silent" death.

Fett II- I saw that on Mugglenet... I'm not sure if I trust it though... seems like a good opening. It just seems so vague! J. K. Rowling usually writes with much more description, especially about settting up the begining of her books.
Huh... I wonder who to taller man is.. I don't think it would be LV for some reason... ??

Nah I don't think it's Voldemort either, I'm thinking it's another Death Eater.

One thing about how she writes, I find it annoying.  The first 2 books were good, but after they began being made into movies she started putting in so much description.  In my opinion, books are meant to be left up to your imagination.

Doesn't description go hand in hand with imagination though?  I mean, one person's fuzzy red chair might not be another's fuzzy red chair, you know?  It's all in interpretation.

No but it became the fuzzy red chair with a nice velvet covering that had a lump in the middle but the rest was extremely soft.

Just out of curiosity, why did you read this thread when you dislike the Harry Potter books so much?

And obviously so much money has been made from them as lots of people really enjoy reading the books (like how I do) Just because you do not like it does not mean that everyone shouldn’t do as well.

The world would not be an interesting place if we all liked the same things.

The guy who created the pet rock became a millionaire, and you are surprised a book sold...

Define epic...

It can't be extremely dark or kids wouldn't want to read it. And since it is technically still mostly geared toward teens, I'm pretty sure its dark enough.

Who said anything about taking you to another world, It's based in london.

Harry should not be a warlock, get your facts straight. This statement you made jus proves you are trying to find faults in the book for no reason.

No design element? I took film analysis this year in school, and I can tell you that even if you hate the films, you can find clear "design elements".

I am not a HP fanboy, I just think the books are interesting. But if you are going to complain about it, don't make up things to bash the book. At least find real problems with them.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

and don't bring up that crap about how it makes kids want to practice Witchcraft, that's what the idiots down in the south who love Jesus too much are for.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

omg, this topic is already getting out of hand. Everyone has their own opinions, so lets just all try to respect that... sithpspit, you are free to dislike the books as much as you like, but this is a topic about "DEATHLY HALLOWS" not a topic about "All the things wrong with the Harry Potter series."

Draco, you would be right if Hogwarts was a school for Wiccans... but HP has nothing to do with Wicca, so there's nothing wrong with females being referred to as witches.

Anyways... how many days to you all plan on reading Deathly Hallows in? I think, unfortunately, it may take me up to a week, with work and all.  From that time, I plan on avoiding the internet at all costs!!

The original definition of a witch states that they must sell their soul to a demon and partake in Black Masses.

That may be, but thats not excactly what a witch is. While in many places and religions it is thought of as somebody dealing with the devil, it is not a necessary requirement to be a witch.

a person, now especially a woman, who professes or is supposed to practice magic, especially black magic or the black art; sorceress.

So, just to straighten things out...

Well, I read the rest of them on an average of 2 days per book.  (Less for the shorter ones) so I would guess two to three, depending on my levels of distraction at that time.  wink

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

Depending on whether or not there's something in the book that annoys me...a day to a year. I'm going to read it just to be done with the series, well, there is a little curiosity involved I suppose.

I'll abdicate at the drop of a hat

I am not sure how long it will take me to read the book. It all depends on how much reading time I can get (that will be challenging with three small younglings) but as soon as I have got the book I will not be switching on my computer again until I have finished it big_smile

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

i think he's silly.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I think Lucus and JK rowlinmg should have teamed up and made the final book.
Harry Pothead could be fighting Voltamorty and be sucked into another Galaxy. All the Wizards and stuff team up with the Rebels and the Voltamorty guy teams up with the Empire. Boba Fett kills like 50 guys before getting bored and leaving.
At the end, the universe blows up and everyone dies and dies over again until god gets bored and blows everything up with some super nuke. But Boba Fett lives and so does Ron. The end.

"Just because Boba is smarter than Jango doesn't mean Jango is retarded."

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I have the entire weekend off, so I plan to do nothing but read and avoid the internet until I'm done. I hope. If I don't have it done by Sunday night I'll read it right after work on Monday.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Hehe that will be fun for you, are you a quick reader?

It would not be wise for me to do that.

I am already preparing for the release of the book. I am working on getting as much housework done as possible so that I will have little to do when I would like to read the book. As I have already said I will also be not switching on the computer until I have finished so that will also give me the whole night to read. Hopefully it should not take too long.

I am really looking forward to this Friday big_smile

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

ill take my time to make sure i understand what goes on.

ps- are u gonna go to that museum of natural history where JK is reading the book?

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

That is funky big_smile

Sadly I will not be going to the museum. There is no way for me to be able to get to London. I will be going to Edinburgh. I am rather sad that she has decided to go to London though sad (that was where she wrote the book)
