Disappointed! The most important thing about this scene is Riddle keeping the box of “trophies” They relate to the whole Horcrux thing and not to show it is stupid.

HA! HA! I beat my craving :].
I’m not watching this one! Partly because I’m eating lunch and I’m a little preoccupied and partly because I feel as though WB has given us too much.

It’s a chopped up version for sure. There are things that we had previously seen and are missing in this clip, so I’m not worried. Still I loved it! That kid is really creepy… he seems to play young Riddle really well. Less than a month guys! YAY!

Did anyone else think that was kind of… boring?

I loved the performance of Riddle. But the scene as a whole did seem a bit choppy and rushed. I hope it is not the complete scene as well. And I’m sorry to nitpick here but what the hell is with the pensive?!?! That is not what it looked like in GOF! Why must they mess with everything from film to film? Have they ever heard of continuity?! At least the pensive in GOF was in a stone basin which is how it is described in the books. Not as a free floating pool of water. And Harry did not fall into it. Which they did do in GOF. Seeing as that is how it is described in the books as well you would think they would keep it. Unless of course this is just a portion of the entire scene in which case I hope to be pleasantly surprised when I see the movie.

Just watched the retrospective. Now that was cool! It reminded me how much I love these films. When I do nit pick like above it is out of love. For the characters and their stories. This is the first movie for me post reading of the books so I have a completely different perspective than I have ever had before. No matter how much i nitpick I know I will love the movie as a whole.

@ phantomdave79:
Actually i don’t think they have changed anything on how the pensieve looks. Search for a pic of the pensieve used in GoF and you’ll see that the pensieve there is just the one used in HBP but only in a stone base. In the book (HBP) the pensieve is often described as placed on the headmaster’s desk and removed from its original place. That’s why they made the pensieve look like this in the film, I think.
But yeah, you’re right about the fact that harry doesn’t fall in the pensieve anymore.
