i’m not watching it… it spoils movie experience…

I did it with OOTP, I watched several clips and now I regret it. I’M NOT GOING TO DO THIS WITH HBP… I’m controlling myself….

Dan and Rupert play OFF each other so very well,
that was a terrific scene and actually funny!

LOL. That helped cheer me up a little after a hard night at work. The dialogue is great (really close to the book too). This scene really shows the chemistry between Dan Radcliffe & Rupert Grint very well too. Thanks 4 posting this!

When I see these things, I’m like… “OMFG! AHH!” and I go and click on them a thousand times until they open, like any fangirl. Then after, I say, “ugh.” Because I want to save most of the experiences for when I see the actual movie. I think WB has given us way too much and I hope it’s not like this for DH.

Other than that… I absolutely LOVE Rupert, best actor on the face of the earth ;]. This clip just made me la-la-loooove him more!

oh my god! the best, most reassuring thing about this clip, for me, is the pacing. i couldn’t tell if it was the script or the direction, but in ootp, the scenes were so short. i’m glad to see yates is not afraid to “sit” with the scene. it will make for a very good watch.

and rupert. well, i knew he was good, but this is great to see. looks like an awesome combo of excellent acting and a good script. plus, and i know i’m a shameless fanboy, but he looks supercute.

Rupert was excellent, but Daniel (Harry) needed a lot of effort too. he never saw his friend like this, and plus Rupert was too close to him. Dan needed the right look.

Wow! The acting is sure on par from what I’ve seen (I’ve previously thought some of the other movies had squeamish acting in parts- just too forced at times) Ron is absolutely perfect and Harry!!!! Oh there aren’t words for how excited I am to see this movie if it carries the same caliber as this clip! For once it’s like I’m watching what I’ve read, instead of convincing myself to accept a lesser version.

Ron looks absolutly insane and completly out of his normal caracter. It is well brilliant. I love Harry’s awkward comments! They are so cute and the part where haha very funny and Ron throws it soooo stupidly that I am pretty sure it did not even hit him. That could have been done better! I hope they have some backround sound at that point.
