HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS (PART 1 AND PART 2)



HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS (PART 1 AND PART 2)

Over the holiday vacation, I had a HARRY POTTER MARATHON.

Here are some of my thoughts… after seeing   the movies four or five times each:

PART 1

For just a moment. Dudley’s mother was a human and not a muggle.
“One hears many things. Whether the truth is among them, it is not clear.” spoken by Pious
“Saintlike,” repeated George, opening his eyes and looking up at his brother. “You see…I’m HOLEY, Fred, geddit?”
Once on the run, the tent which was in Hermione’s purse seems to grow larger at will … magical, I know.  But now, it’s a three room tent?

I WANT A DOBBY FOR CHRISTMAS: “Dobby never meant to kill. He only meant to maim, or seriously injure.”

 

PART 2

Snape put a fake sword into the evil witch’s vault. Is Snape evil or not?
FYI: Do you know whats worse than a bull in a china shop- a dragon in a banking institution.
“Why make a plan. When has a plan ever actually worked?”  GREAT WORDS OF ADVISE.
“Lightening has struck… I repeat.  Lightening has struck.” I love the code name!!
“There’s not a person alive who has seen it. Its obvious. You have to speak to someone who is dead.” MORE GREAT WORDS OF WISDOM.
“It is the quality of ones convictions that determine success, not the number of ones followers.” TELL THAT TO A TEEN ADDICTED TO FACEBOOK.
“You haven’t seen Luna. I love her. I think its about time I tell her since we’ll both be likely dead by dawn.” MY FAVORITE LINE OF THIS MOVIE!

HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE

HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE



Over the holiday vacation, I had a HARRY POTTER MARATHON.

Here are some of my thoughts… after seeing   the movies four or five times each:

I’M NOT SURE THAT I BELIEVE THIS ONE: the love potion is the most dangerous potion in the room.
ANOTHER CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR NEXT YEAR: liquid luck … just what harry needs
My students would agree with this one: getting an old book of spells corrected (All the questions are answered) is much better than a new one.
JUST LIKE PEOPLE: magicians can be evil delinquents from the beginning: Tom Riddle
There are times that hatred and anger may blind one to the truth, but there are other times that being paranoid is not being paranoid, if it’s true.
When the enemy tries to bait you into a fight it is usually better to fish another day.
“Oh to be young and feel love’s keen sting.” another slice of wisdom from Professor Dumbledore.

HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX

HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX



Over the holiday vacation, I had a HARRY POTTER MARATHON.

Here are some of my thoughts… after seeing   the movies four or five times each:

And the the world is sane- not everything changes…. Dudley is still a jerk.
“You’re just as sane as I am,” says the girl that reads books upside-down and sees invisible animals. Not real comforting.
I did not think there could be a ‘teacher’ from a movie I could hate in real life …  the pink, cat woman spell-caster’ …Boo….Hiss…
One must only ‘flourish one’s wand’ as needed. Great advice.
If the lead professors at Hogwarts knew that Potter’s mind was being infiltrated… I’m not sure of the wisdom of waiting so long to teach him how to defend himself from its happenings???
Robbie, the half-brother, is a tad uncouth in his manners.
ANOTHER CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR NEXT YEAR: The Weasley twins did themselves proud with their school enjoyments…. I would have enjoyed some ‘attack’ fireworks.
Severus Snape  … I’m having a hard time seeing him as a good guy?
“I’m sorry professor. I must not tell lies.”  A great line to use on the pink, cat-lady.

HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE

HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE



Over the holiday vacation, I had a HARRY POTTER MARATHON.

Here are some of my thoughts… after seeing   the movies four or five times each:

The World Quidditch Games being involved in a terrorist attack – complete with wrecking havoc and destruction… How relevant to today.

Eternal glory in the Tri-Wizard Tournament…. for achieving just three tasks in a game. Seems a bit of over-kill?

Why are there always spiders!!!!!

What is scarier than a horrid pirate with an eye-patch? A pirate whose eye-patch encompasses a new wandering eye.

ANOTHER CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR NEXT YEAR: I have had many a pleasant conversation near the warmth of a blazing fire in a fireplace, but I have never conversed with the fire… (I WANT A FIREPLACE TO TALK TO.)

“We never use transfiguration as a punishment.” But it looked so effective!!!

Dating advice from Harry Potter…. “I’d rather slay a dragon.”

“Curiosity is not a sin, but one should exercise caution” Another wise statement from Professor Dumbledore.

HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN

HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN



Over the holiday vacation, I had a HARRY POTTER MARATHON.

Here are some of my thoughts… after seeing   the movies four or five times each:

IF ONLY THE PEOPLE THAT I DREAM ABOUT THIS HAPPENING TO WOULD COME TRUE: It is too bad that all wind bags full of hot air won’t just float away.

Finding a map that shows where every person is at all times would really come in handy of you were a cop…. but in the wrong hands- a criminals heaven.

Serious Black as Harry Potter’s godfather came as quite a surprise the first time I watched the movie… Just goes to show, you can pick your friends, you make your own enemies, but your relatives?

“That’s the memory I chose. I don’t even know if it real,” said Harry Potter. I have childhood memories that are like that. (1) riding on the back of a large dog (2) sticking both of my hands into a cake for my slice.

ANOTHER CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR NEXT YEAR: A reading parchment that chooses to insult anyone who tries to read it. I would enjoy passing that note in my classes when I was in high school.

When Hermione gave a right-hand upper cross to the sniveling little brat, I applauded. That was much better than using magic.

How appropriate, the rat of the group turning himself into a rat.

FYI: A tree that eats birds… that’s not right.

HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS

HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS



Over the holiday vacation, I had a HARRY POTTER MARATHON.

Here are some of my thoughts… after seeing   the movies four or five times each:

Yes, I love Dudley in movie two as much as I did in movie one.

FOR NEXT CHRISTMAS: Everyone needs a Dobby, a house elf, to assist them in life.

JUST COMMON SENSE, I WOULD THINK, EVEN FOR A GLUTTON: It really doesn’t matter… one should never eat a floating cupcake.

Why does Dumbledore keep asking. “Is there something you wish to tell me?”… when he should be asking “Is there something you SHOULD tell me?”

I agree with Ron Weasley, it is never a good idea to “Follow the spiders.” … “Follow the butterflies” would be a much better idea!!

FYI: A creature that will frighten spiders, I never want to see!!!

HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE

HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE



Over the holiday vacation, I had a HARRY POTTER MARATHON.

Here are some of my thoughts… after seeing the movies four or five times each:

NEXT YEARS CHRISTMAS REQUEST: I want a reverse flashlight like Dumbledore in the opening scene.

I WISH I HAD THIS AS A HID-AWAY WHEN I WAS A KID: Except for the dust from above, I think under the stairs would be a great place to sleep.

AND OTHER SCATTERED THOUGHTS …

I would love to see Dudley tied by his feet and hung upside-down until (the rest of the statement was no longer PG13.) … but being trapped in a snake’s cage was a close second. The piggy-tail was a plus, as well.

I have always pictured bankers as ‘goblins’….Ugly little buzzards, they are.

I have never ridden on a train, but I think the Hogwart’s Express would be a grand ride.

I agree with Ron Weasley that fried chicken legs for dinner are the best. I try hard (unoke Ron) NOT to eat them two at a time..

While riding the ‘brooms’ in Harry Potter might be a great deal of fun, I would still prefer to own ‘The Jetson’s car’.

Every set of boys need and overbearing and bossy girl to keep them in balance.

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” Professor Dumbledore is a wise wizard.

Having a pet dragon would be awesome!!!

“Hanging by your thumbs in the dungeon” seems to be a very appropriate punishment for misbehaving at school. I think the school system has gotten soft!

The three-headed dog I didn’t mind. I could sing to him and make friends. But the slime from the beast is horrid!

I loved the ‘killer’ chess set. I have no one around that likes to play any longer. I never was that good- but I suspect this game would cause improvements rather fast.

There is NO WAY I would try jelly beans if a possible flavor might be ‘vomit’ or ‘ear wax’ …. no worth the risk.
