Harry Potter Day

It's FINALLY HERE! After the long wait, plus the push back from Warner Brothers, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince as arrived!!!

Check out the 10 ten teen movie parallels
The movie website with downloads

Pictures of the big three:

In preparation for the event, some people re-read the book. Instead I had a Potter movie marathon and here's what I discovered.

Lame lines:
"I know what that is, that's an invisibility cloak" Ron from Sorcerer's Stone
"Make a wish Harry." Harry from Sorcerer's Stone
"I think the troll's left the dungeon" Ron from Sorcerer's Stone
"And then, we play" Ron from Sorcerer's Stone
"You wish" Harry from Chamber of Secrets
"Who wants me to open it?" Harry from Goblet of Fire
"Everything's going to change now, isn't it?" Hermione from Goblet of Fire

Awesome Lines:
"I read about it in Hogwarts: a History." Hermione from Sorcerer's Stone
"Troll in the dungeon. Troll in the dungeon. Thought you ought to know." Professor Quirrell from Sorcerer's Stone
"I shouldn't have said that. I should NOT have said that." Hagrid from Sorcerer's Stone
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." Dumbledore from Sorcerer's Stone
"Honestly, don't you two read?" Hermione from Sorcerer's Stone
"Pull yourself together man. You're going into the forest after all. You've got to keep your wits about you." Mr. Filch from Sorcerer's Stone
"You're a little scary sometimes, brilliant - but scary" Ron from Sorcerer's Stone
"Hello, who are you?"
"uh, Ron Weasley"
"Really? and uh...who am I?...
This is an odd sort of place, do you live here?" Lockheart and Ron from Chamber of Secrets
"Oh My God! I've Killed Harry Potter." Neville from Goblet of Fire
"You think a bit of snogging would cheer her up." Ron from Order of the Phoenix
"The more you care, the more you have to lose." Harry from Order of the Phoenix

Good Points:
1. Dumbledore vs Dumbledore
2. Fred and George
3. The Evils of Snape and Umbridge
4. Mr. Filch
5. Luna Lovegood
6. Marauder's Map

Things I wished appeared in the movies from the books:
1. Peeves
2. Fred and George - more mischief
3. Fights: fights between both the big three themselves and also between them and the students (We saw a little of this in Goblet of Fire and The Order of the Phoenix)

I hope you all enjoy the movie. Let me know what you think!
