Are people afraid of posting in the Half Blood Prince thread? Pics were posted yesterday, we've been whining about the atrocious hairdos for a good 24 hours now!

But I'm still excited for the next movie!!

Oh my good gracious, those kids are getting so grown up! I can hardly believe it. And I'm excited about Imelda Staunton as Umbridge!

Thanks for posting this!

What in the hell did they go and cut their hair for?

This is a tree on fire with love, but it's still scary since most people think love only looks like one thing instead of the whole world. *

Great pics. I"m excited to see the movie. I just finished Order of the Phoenix so it will be the first time I can actually watch the movie when it comes out rather than renting it years later.

I agree, Umbridge should look WAY scarier and uglier. She just looks like a 50's housewife or something.

Trelawney is so funny- she looks exactlylike our realtor! (Who was a total flake)

Just saw the pics and I LOVE Umbridge's office!!! It is perfect!

I don't know why they cut the twin's hair though. My fantasies aren't going to be the same now.

That thread scares me too, Finch! You're not alone.

I hate the movies. There. I said it. I love Harry Potter, but those movies, with their hack job scripts and multiple directors... shudder.

Umm, yes, I am. I used to, but it feels liked a closed group to me, so I gave it up long ago...bummer, because I really am a Harry Freak, just not a fanfic freak.

I pop into that thread occasionally and comment on movie/book stuff. I generally stay out of the fanfic conversations (except when I wrote a little crackfic.)

You don't need to read all 704 pages. Just pop in, read the page we're on and jump right in, if it interests you. If not, read the page we're on and leave without posting.

I kinda avoid the big thread because I'm not into fanfic and that's pretty much all that's talked about for the most part unless it's right around the time a book or movie gets released. Just never liked fanfic..

I'm so sad that they all cut off their hair!!!! They all looked so good with it!!

I'm sad that they cut their hair, too, and the woman who plays umbrigde doesn't look scary enough-maybe she will act the part so well that she'll freak the heck out of us though.

I'm thinking I like the looks of Luna, though. She looks appropriately different, I think.

You'll get no flaming from me. I don't hate the movies but I am thoroughly disappointed, with GoF the most. I never thought I'd say I prefer Chris Columbus over any other director, but in retrospect, his treatment of SS(PS) and CoS were more faithful to the books, coherent and all around decent movies. I thought PoA was beautiful, superior to the previous two movies in appearance and also reasonably coherent. But they left Snape's hospital tirade out of the movie. Unforgivable.

GoF was fun but left out sooo much that they could have included. I know films makers aren't obligated to replicate the books on film. But they've really done the fans a disservice by leaving so many sub plots out.

Pictures: yay! I don't mind the boys' short hair. James and Oliver just get better looking all the time. Don't judge Imelda Staunton yet. Wait till she opens her mouth. She's an exceptional actor and I have no doubt she will ooze nastiness.

Ivana Lynch looks great!

Daniel Radcliffe might be getting the Elijah Wood thick neck... Oh dear!

Someone moved my effing cheese.
