If you have commented to anything over the last week I will be replying I promise. *g*

I'm now at my parents house for a couple of days catching up with them and my sister. So far that has involved watching lots of Doctor Who and if I ever say John Simm is over-acting in The Last of the Time Lords again please slap me. I still don't like it but honestly, over-acting is Who canon. ;) I love Turlough so much. I want Five/Turlough fic rather desperately.

This morning I went to see Harry Potter. Anyone who had issues with it may want to look away now .

After POA this is without doubt the best film. It was so well done. All the cuts felt natural and there was enough to keep me interested without running over-long *cough*GobletOfFire*cough*.

I kept wanting to take out my laptop and write a review while I was watching. I may do another one tomorrow after I've seen it again and can remember everything, but here's a list of things that made this perfect:

1. The beginning with the heat and the playground and Dudley and the Dementors.

2. SIRIUS WAS PRACTICALLY DRAPED OVER REMUS!! Their love is so true and acknowledged by the film-makers. And Remus crying while holding Harry back from the curtain... ♥

3. Sirius is HOT finally! In the velvet with the winking and all the hugging.

4. Harry & Draco are angsty and needy. They are totally doing it in closets and empty classrooms and hating and loving each other at the same time.

5. Mcgonagall and Snape's shared look at Umbridge's behaviour at the feast.

6. The little twist of Ginny's face when Hermione said Cho liked Harry.

7. Harry reading Snape's mind to find out about his father was very well done.

8. Ron calling someone a 'tosspot'. *g* And defending Hermione. And teasing Harry about snogging. And Ron basically. I liked him more here than in any previous film.

9. The whole sequence at the Department of Mysteries.

There should be a 10 here with Sirius' death but right at the moment he was hit with the curse, a girl's phone started ringing behind me. I mean WTF?! Seriously people. When you go to the cinema turn off your fucking phone.

More tomorrow. *g*

This movie was just so good omg. I can't understand how anyone cannot like this film - it's not meant to be the entire book. The movie would be like, six hours long and so boring. All the ships! Ron/Hermione. Ginny/Harry. Remus/Sirius was PRACTICALLY CANON OMG. And they hinted at Neville/Luna, which made me strangely excited. For the first time ever in a HP film, I liked absolutely everyone. Everyone's acting is getting so much better, and Luna! The girl who plays her pretty much is Luna (those turnip earrings she wore? The actress made them). I just do not have words for how much I loved this film. I may have to go again later to cheer myself up.

I have no HP icon. :(

I don't understand it either. I went to see it again yesterday and it just fills up with happiness. *g* Ron/Hermione was adorable, Remus/Sirius WAS canon and Neville/Luna was teh cute. Hehehe. I loved Luna in the film which is testament to how good it was because I really didn't like her in the books. *hugs*

You need a HP icon.

I'm going to see it again tonight! Eeeeee so excited :)

I loved the teeny scenes with Snape and Umbridge "Obviously" and the one with McGonagall and Umbridge where they kept trying to stand on one step higher than the other. Awesome!

And, of course, everything else. There are some things they left out that I'm sad about, but others that I'm glad about (most of Hagrid and Grawp, S.P.E.W., CAPSLOCK!Harry)

Eeee!` I saw it again yesterday. So good omg.

Oh that scene between Snape and Umbridge cracked me up. Hehehe. And I loved the one between McGonagal and Umbridge on the stairs because you didn't even need the words to get the point of that across. ♥

I think they managed to do everything they needed to and didn't get bogged down in other things that, while they're nice and interesting and fun to read about, would just stretch a long film to ridiculous extremes.
