Yay!! i’ve been waiting for this!!
When I downloaded the podcast it said it was a review of Part 2. I can’t decide whether I am disappointed or relieved that it’s part 1.
Last plug here for our Sabretooth Movie review but would love to hear all of your thoughts in the comments.
I’ve been dying to hear your thoughts! wow I sound like a loser lol
me too, me too. extremely eager. :D
Hey guys! Thought you might want to know that on iTunes it says that it is the review of Part 2, not 1. Thanks! I LOVE POTTERCAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Podcast was a bit all over the place, maybe set up what you’ll speak about in order next time, and give the sleepy guy some coffee. As for the question you guys had about the sword, the snatcher actually says " We found it in her bag when we searched them". So they obviously went through Hermione’s bag.
listening to this makes me ACHE to see the movie again! thank god i’m seeing it again in a few days. and i think that, although they couldve built the elder wand up more, by ending the entire movie with that massive explosion/spell coming from the wand REALLY left me on edge, even though i obviously know what will happen, and i think that those last few seconds kind of show the grand significance of the wand. i mean, the entire epicness of the movie concluded with that so i think people will understand its importance.
What I love and I’m surprised y’all did not mention it is when they panned our for about 7 seconds while Hermione is laying on the growing after being tortured to show the finest little hair landing on her coat from Bellatrix. I gave seen it twice and I dis not notice it until the second time.
I’d just like to chime in that I used to love Leaky until I also felt you started bashing the actors sometimes. The Bonnie hate in particular is a turn off. She was 16 when she made HBP. It was the first time they actually gave her a decent role and it was being Harry’s LI. Don’t you think that’d be a little hard to live up to? It doesn’t help that Kloves completely rewrote her character and the relationship with Harry. Lay off her a little, would you?
I thought she improved a lot in DH. What was so bad about her in DH? I thought she did pretty good. I had issues with the angle of the kiss, but that’s not her problem, that’s the filmmakers for choosing an odd way to film it.
I think I’m officially done with Leaky. :(
Agreed Rosalie. You guys seem to expect canon Ginny and canon Harry and Ginny relationship. They way they set up the Harry and Ginny relationship in HBP film that’s not going to happen. Bonnie and Dan can do only so much with what they get for their scenes together.
Dude, Bonnie doesn’t write the scripts so the awkwardness with her zipped up dress and the angle of the kiss shot is not her fault. If less you’re suggesting Bonnie is a script writer and director of the films now. O_o
Leaky is expressing their opinion on the movie, are they not allowed to do that? If it bothers you so much no ones forcing you to listen. The Bonnie kissing scenes are awkward, all other scenes with her I don’t have a problem with. And so what if she’s 16? I’m sure everyone has kissed someone by then. Blame does lie partly with the direction but Leaky is expressing there opinion. I’m happy they are nit picking the film compared to just saying the loved it and everything was perfect. Also when do they bash the actors? Leaky gives more respect to the cast than any news media out there.
The nit picking is good, it’s important to critique these films and not just blatantly love them, I commend leaky on bringing up the awkwardness of Ginny/harry’s kiss and her zip scene, they were definitely awkward.
Thank you Liderc, I understand the fans are passionate but Pottercast can’t please everyone with their opinion. If they say they love the film people get on them about how they just say it was perfect and don’t bring up issues with the film, then when they do nit pick people say they are being mean. It’s criticism, they aren’t saying Bonnie is a bad actress they just say the scenes could have been better.
