I think it would have made a better impact if Hermione said “friends” proudly. It would have meant that she considered their (Hers and Ron’s) friendship above Lavander’s and Ron’s…err…relationship. In this clip, it just kinda showed her being all possessive and pathetic. :(

Everyone please stop complaining! the first three films (which happen to be the best) are light all the way through until the very end, and they were rated PG. This one is also rated PG! This one will be amazing, just like the first three. No, it won’t be dark allllll the way through, but if you think it should…. go back and read Half-Blood Prince again, it’s not dark at all! It focuses on Ron and Hermione and Quiddich, and the Half-Blood Prince book that Harry sees to not be dark at all (with dumbledore’s lessons at the side). Yeah, the book has very dark bits in it, but STOP complaining about all the romance! They have said this will be the funniest film yet, and thats what makes Harry Potter so beautiful.

Thanks so much! The hospital wing scenes are good, the random waitress bit – eh, I can live through it. Everything else was really good though!

Sorry i just read that through and i sounded so stupid haha! I’m just really trying to make this one the best in my opinion. I mean it has the cinematographer from Amelie, which is like my faveourite foreign film ever! I just want it to be really funny and light until that devastating ending. Coz i think thats what made me cry so hard, that i didn’t expect such darkness at the end.

EVERYBODY is saying that waitress scene is awful. Maybe David Yates will see these comments and Leaky can tell him to cut it? Haha. It’s really crap, and soo un-Harry ish. He’s supposed to be 16! and shes like 23! We should start a petition called “get rid of cheesy breathe check” add me and leave a comment on my parchment and with your encouragement i’ll email Leaky. I’m not doing it by myself though!

I think it could have used a little more action. It was pretty funny and is making me pretty excited that it will be here soon!!

It’s great!! I LOVE IT!!! Harry flirting with the muggle waitress equals classic! I love Hermione and Lavender’s little fight over Ron. lmao…but ALL know who the winner will be. And Dumbledore’s line at the end is PERFECT! It’s such a Dumbledore-ish line! Loved it!

“Ah to be Young, and feel Love’s keen sting” Rather poignant, that comment from Dumbledore, as he was young once too and inlove with a man who betrayed him.
