52)Do we see THE END at the end?
53)Can you name some Harry and Ginny moments? And how was there kiss?
54) Can you describe the opening montage?
55) How was the great hall scene with dead fred?
Here are his answers:
1. The kiss was great. It's obscured with their heads but I'd say it goes on for like 6 -7 seconds, but it's great. They have a cute giggle afterwards.
2. LEAVING HOGWARTS DID PLAY! Right at the very end. I have to say, the epilogue was great. Look forward to that part.
3. Blood from Snape's mouth...I can't remember??? I don't think so, but there is quite a bit of blood. Harry keeps him alive to talk by pressing his hand at his neck to stop the blood flow.
4. Scenes in the Princes Tale: Young Lily and pertunia on the hill with the opening flower and they see a young snape. Lily and Snape on the river bank and him telling her about magic. Lily getting sorted into gryffindor. James knocking into snape in the corridor. Snape holding a dead Lily. Snape and Dumbledore's conversations about Harry and Lily and Harry getting sorted into gryffindor. My favourite part? All of the princes tale was good, i really don't have a favourite part.
5. Lupin and Tonks holding hands...I think that is the last time we see them before we see them dead on stretchers in the hall. I actually can't remember that shot in the film.
6. Ron didn't cry before harry went to voldemort. But it's not bad. Hermione gets pretty emotional because she "apparently" suspected for quite some time that Harry was a horcrux. But you can tell he's upset but subtly, there is sort of a hidden understanding between the two of them when harry leaves.
7. Best action sequence? Wow, killing me. I think the Harry and Voldemort stand off at the end. Spectacular. And he really kicks the crap out of Harry aswell.
8. The most emotional moment by far was the resurrection stone part. It was really sad but really well done.
9. Harry and Voldemort falling off the cliff was good. Dan says the line different in the film though, it's a better delivery aswell but when they were flying around, it was weird. It was like their face was merging into one but it's a good scene.
10. I don't think I can judge it as the best Potter film becuase for me, it didn't feel like it's own film because from the very beginning it just gets on with it. It starts immediately where it left off. If you realy want me to? It proabably was. The acting was great, the special effects were SUPERB and it just felt more grown up in tone and darkness.
11. Cinematography was good. There was just so much going on that I don't think it was on the same standard as HBP. But the colours were great and there were some really stunning angles. But HBP was in a league of it's own, I think.
12. Princes's Tale was great, it was just great. It was about 5 - 7 minutes. When you see it two weeks you'll agree and I've said what it consists of above anyway. Alan Rickman... ^:)^
13. King's cross sequence was great. It was basically a white platform. The ugly voldemort soul baby thing was hidious, but perfect. The dialogue was great and both Gambon and Radcliffe give good performances.
14. Snape's death wasn't really made to feel emotional until up to the point where Harry collects his memories and that's when you're like...oh, shit. Voldemort doesn't show the same remorse for his action as he does in the book though. It is quite brutal. Voldemort slits his throat but you see the blood thorugh his shirt thing and then Nagini lunges at him several times and there's quite a bit of blood splattered on the windows etc.
15. The battle wasn't really split into halves, it just has a constant presence thorughout the film. When Herry and Hermione need to get from place to place they have to run through the battle and fight a bit. I don't remember seeing Hagrids hut but it could be in there. We do see the slopes of Hogwarts quite a bit, when Voldemorts troups are running across it etc. There are a few tracking shots, like that death eater one in the trailer which carries on for a few secs. There is a lot of great footage of the battle to see ;)
16. Lily's theme does play in the opening.
17. Dementors don't chase them in hogsmeade, but some death eaters are stationed there and the alarm that someone's arrived sets off and they know it's Harry until, of course, aberforth rescues them.
18. The film was obviously around two hours and definetely felt like the shortest film. I don't know exactly becuase they took our phones before we were allowed into the screen. It didn't feel rushed...but it felt over all too quickly! :-) But that was probably becuase I enjoyed it so much. The beginning was quite fast paced, shell cottage, gringotts etc. But the rest was perfect.
19. Harry walking thorugh the castle on the way to the forest? I don't think so. The only time we see him in the castle before he's in the forest is when he's saying goodbye to ron and hermione.
20. I've answered this one already practically.
21. No, we don't see the complete Potter's death scene. Just lily talking to harry when he's in the cot and then a flash back to that shot in movie 1 where she's getting AK'd by Voldemort.
22. Didn't really see Nigel in the film. He's not really in it. But he was in the credits so he must have been in the background somewhere.
23. Anything bad about the film? Not really...LOL. I know that's a bit sceptical but nothing really stands out to me as generally bad. Maybe...one too many "humorous" one-liners during the beginning part of the battle scenes??? But not really. Thing is, they were'nt even bad, they were funny but I can see that annoying some people.
24. Nagini gets killed while he and harry anre having the final stand off so you don't see his reaction and voldy never knew nagini was killed.
25. No, I don't think so. He tries to when they're on the astronomy tower thing but all voldy wants to do is kick the crap out of him (which he does!) Harry later explains that he's the master of the elder wand to ron and hermione on the bridge.
26. Good. Ginny screams but Arthur holds her back and I actually thought Fiennes was great in this scene as he asks the goodies to join him. Neville gives a great speech, look out for it :-)
27. Elder wand theory is explained well enough. All the important stuff is there. It was actually explained pretty well for the film, i have to say.
28. Draco malfoy in the princes tale? Don't recall it. Possibly, but i can't remember... :-/
29. He disintergrates...you see it a lot in his face but it's slow and effective. The sort of ash rises up in the air.
30. The score was EPIC! Courtyard apocalypse was used to great effect several times!
31. I think music plays when harry and voldy are duelling, i think it does...yes.
32. The end credits were like DH1. Pretty much the same, I think.
33. The WB logo is smooth silver.
34. When Harry meets the Grey lady, he's just trying to persuade her to tell him the hiding place. They don't go ito the while story like they do in the book but it's a good scene. She's made out as quite shy and fearful.
35. When Neville (or voldemort) are about to attack, he whips off the cloak and fires a curse then runs and voldemort chases after him and that's how the sequence starts. Its really cool.
36. The Death eaters just enter the grounds. Initially they are held off by the protection sphere around the castle but then Voldy destorys it and they rush inside. There's quite a funny sequence with Neville and the big non death eater bad croud as they can't get in and he's watching them.
37. We don't see Voldy get angry, but there is a scene where he's walking around the big room at Malfoy Manor with nagini and there are all the goblins involved at Gringotts lying dead all over the floor surrounded by blood. And you just see the malfoys looking down at the scene like....wtf have we allowed to happen in our house, wtf am i doing on this planet.
38. The mines in gringotts are great, the whole set was just stunning. The dragon flight was great, the dragon was great. bloody hell, everything was great, lol. You saw it in the clip, practically. The cart ride was a sight to see in 3D.
39. The effects was SUPERB! The COS tsnami looks alot better on the big screen, i have to tell you. They're are not in your face which is another good thing. The film is a perfect balance of spectacle and drama.
40. The cos scene wasn't edited down in any way and nothing was added but other scenes of harry running up the stairs and voldemort in another location were interspersed while the scene plays out.
*Oh and someone was saying about being disappointed a different shot wasn't used for lily's death? It's good in the film, trust me. But they do have the haunting shot of lily lying dead on the floor! And then snape going to hold her and crying!
41. Oscar nom catergories? Special effects by far. Definetly art direction becuase some of the set pieces were stunning. I think music beacuse the soundtrack was just epic. Possibly an acting nom for alan rickman becuase he was incredible.
42. Practically answered this.
43. Tthe protection application is just a short mini montage of the professors and mrs weasley shootin the protection out of their wands to the sky to form it. The sphere is destroyed by voldemort but afterwards he is considerably weaker becuase he obviously used alot of power from the elder wand to do it. The elder wad cracks a bit. It's quite cool.
44. The "why do you live scene" is NOT in the movie.
45. Dumbledore's great line from the kings cross scene WAS in the movie! :-)
46. It wasn't rushed, but it was quite mellow, so don't expect some big euphoria thing. Harry just enters the great hall and finds everyone mingling. Harry, ron and hermione then on the bridge where " a new beginning" does play. Then the epilogue where "nineteen yers later" does appear on the screen.
47. Final shot of the movie? Argh...I think a near close up of Harry, I'm sure of it... Not sure, and I know that's a criminal thing to forget! lol.
48. The two way mirror scene is revealed well enough. Harry gets all defensive becuase Dung sold it to aberforth etc when it was sirius's.
49. Last shots of the order and Neville was probably them in the Great hall.
50. No, the sorting hat is not set fire to and neville never wears it. He picks it up later in the film i think, amongst the ruins, not sure.
*When harry goes inside voldys mind when they drop into the lake from the dragon. Thats when he goes mad and shoots spells etc, i think.
51. Narcissa does whisper to Harry and Harry gives a slight nod.
52. We do NOT see "The End" at the end, LOL. And I'm glad they didn't do that becuase the wouldv'e been lame.
