Actually it’s the worst start to a movie. It’s like a trailer, or a montage of clips we saw arranged differently. If this is the movie, again horrible editing by Mark Day. What the heck do they think they’re doing? Where’s the buildup, the tension, whatever??

Hm I was gonna watch it but now I’ve decided not too! I think I’ve already seen too much in the trailers and stuff so I don’t want to spoil any more of the movie – I want to watch it in the cinema first!
…..I can totally resist the temptation for that long. (I hope.)

Did anyone manage to get to the clip on that german site, not youtube? I registered and logged in and followed the link but there’s nothing there but trailers and featurettes. Where are the 5 minutes?

The Bridge collapse was only like three minutes. I didn’t like how rushed it was. It’s like Order of the Phoenix all over again. The first four HP films had depth in each of their scenes, but OoTP and this just skip over scenes like they’re nothing… I’m hoping for a miracle for the Deathly Hallows. Maybe they’ll fire the current editor and hire someone who doesn’t place clips together like it’s a trailer or something.

You have to click on the writing “Sehen Sie bei uns etc.” Bit tricky, because you also have to download a tracker or something. Rare moments when I’m glad that I can speak German as well… And that “Vorschau” was quite good

I didn’t know that there’s an advance screening in Germany… How they did that? Capturing the clips from a theater is illegal. I hope you also know that…

I strongly agree on Jaymie Brooks.

You know, I’m praying since 2007 that the filmmakers who work for Deathly Hallows (final HP film) are the team who created the film adaptation of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy led by Peter Jackson, i know it’s impossible for now but there’s a “miracle”. =)

One, it’s in German. Two, I registered because my sister’s boyfriend speaks some German and was able to navigate through the site, and we got error page on the video every time we tried to watch it, so the video on the actual german site doesn’t work, unless you’re in Germany and have the plugin and stuff, idk. Three, I am sure they shorten and skip out on many parts of the actual movie scenes to contain them within a 5 minute period for this silly thing.

I won’t watch it, I won’t watch it…. Oh gosh, someone slap me, I am about to watch it. No, I won’t. I won’t… I feel like Kreacher when he refused to be owned by Harry. Goshhhh.
