MTV Discusses "What's Worked Best" in the Harry Potter Movies

As readers will recall, the filming of "Deathly Hallows" wrapped two days ago, inspiring sadness in a few of the actors who worked on the films. Today, MTV commented on what they believe the best elements of the six movies that have already been released are, as well as the moments they think will resonate most in "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" and "Deathly Hallows: Part 2." For "Goblet of Fire" MTV discusses Voldemort:

"Voldemort had made several appearances in a variety of forms in 'Harry Potter' in the first three films, but it wasn't until 'Goblet of Fire' that he actually regained a corporeal form (and killed off Robert Pattinson as Cedric Diggory, in the process!). The perfect casting of Ralph Fiennes, the intimidating character design and the actor's chill-inducing use of the Avada Kedavra curse made Voldemort a villain worth hating."

You can read about the other seven movies here.

Ummm – didn’t Peter Pettigrew kill Cedric Diggory in the graveyard with the Avada Kedavra curse? Remember – Voldemort said: “Kill the spare” – and Pettigrew did it. That means MTV is (once again) incorrect and the actor did not conduct a “chill inducing use of the Avada Kedavra curse.” Although – his "Crucio"s were very chill-inducing.

I just read that article and I agree that those scenes were pretty memorable for each of the films. I can’t wait to see DH but yet I don’t want it to end either.

I really thought that Ralph Finnes did a great job playing Voldemort. His mannerisms and the way he felt his face etc. when he regained his body were spot on. I thought too that he captured the menace of Voldie very well. The actors were all very good.Don’t forget Umbridge! That was one nasty lady as played by Staunton.

It’s pretty hard to pick the one part of a HP film that worked best. I think that’s rather superficial. I think some mention of the development of the Dumbledore/Harry relationship in HBP should have been made.

Cedric,“who are u? What do u want?”
“avada kedavra”

I think whats really made the movies great have been the actors. There is such great talent in all the movies! Unlike a lot of other movie franchises that have become very popular. cough, cough, twilight

The article was good but has been pointed out Wormtail killed the spare. In mentioning all the fabulous actors and actresses in the series we can not forget Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane, Warwick Davis, Richard Harris and alot of marvelous young actors that held this whole thing together for 10 years. The trailer show Harry standing in fromt of 4 Privet Drive letting Hedwig fly away. What really happens in the film???

I don’t think that the writer of the piece was that familiar with the book 7. Dobby’s death happens very deep into book 7 (about halfway through). So I’m not putting much faith in the article when it says that Dobby’s death will be in the first part of DH.

To me the sets, as well as the casting of course, were amazing. That first entrance to Diagon Alley in SS and to the Ministry of Magic in OotP were unbelievable.

Yeah the article said Dobby’s death would be in Part 1. That doesn’t make much sense. They probably didn’t realize it’s much further in the book.

Also, I love Hedwig, but I’m not going to be torn apart when he dies. I was shocked when Hedwig died, but I don’t think it is going to be one of the most memorable parts from the movie.
