Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

i remember something else, there was a sort of porch outside?
so it did looked like first floor- first room of the house-

bad camera showing "behind the magic"?

oh and also I never really heard clearly what Parvati said in the yule ball to the durstrang guy who asks her to dance, but last night i did,
"Arm, Leg, i'm yours"

i thought it was hilarious

Irish. Most Irish accents aren't that strong in my opinion. Especially the further north in Ireland you go, the lighter they seem to be.

Interesting. Seamus's accent is really thick though. I may have just assumed that all Irish people were supposed to have an accent like his. I watched HBP last night though and listened closely to Luna and now I can hear the Irish in her voice.

Irish may have regional dialects like the rest of Britain. (Irish members wanna confirm that?) Notice Cho has an accent similar to that.

Maybe outside Ron's door theres a house plant? *shrug*

I'm pretty sure it's Hedwig's theme.

Katie Leung, who plays Cho is Scotish, not Irish.

Ireland does have a wide variety of accents....speaking as an American who lived there. The Dub accent is very strong, as can be the Northern accent; the west Irish accent is also very distinct. Evanna Lynch's is a fairly mild Irish accent.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

Perhaps I am slow on the uptake (really slow on the uptake), but I was watching the first film and I noticed for the first time that Filch was rooting for Slytherin during the Quidditch match.

I don't know why I found that interesting, I just did.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

From watching DH part 1 on DVD I spotted a few things I hadn't seen in my cinema viewings, firstly George and the toothbrush in his ear finally made sense after I caught him sticking it in there when he's leaning against the counter, I completely missed that the first few viewings and had no idea how it had got there so it makes sense that he's just using it as a comical place to store it.

Also in Hermione's copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, underneath the title when they're looking at the symbol, it says "For little people" which I found quite cute hadn't spotted that before.

Awesome! I want to see that!

Just a warning, MsBinns, the pumpkin juice isnt very good. I was hoping for a more pleasant taste (not to mention, to pay less $ for it), BUT by all means, PLS try it.

I just didnt think it was good.

And BlueBronze, good call on the Harry/Rita scene...How did she know? She may not have known though and it could have just been a smart-@zz comment... and/or a possible coincidential comment, like Draco gave once he became a prefect...how he'd be "dogging" Harry (possibly hinting at seeing Sirius).....I would wager coincidence though....

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

Just watched Deathly Hallows Part 1 again (first time having DVD) and I noticed a few things.

1. Hermione's parents talking about Australia.
2. Radio mentioning Dean Thomas, Ted Tonks, and Gornuk
3. Twilight reference? Radio mentioned, all in one sequence, three people by the name of Bella, Jake and Charlie.

I'll have to look for 1 & 2. I remember #3 being mentioned when it first came out, but since I know nothing about Twilight, I only was aware of it because someone mentioned it.

one thing I noticed is when they are at Lovegood's, when they are all sitting down you can see behind Xeno a bust--I'm assuming of Ravenclaw? It's over his left shoulder.

Having a Potter-athon as I'm writing this. I noticed during the duelling club scene in CoS when Snape uses Expelliarmus [sp?] that it comes out yellow - and kind of looks like lightning. In the books and every other time we see it in the movies it is red. Massive LOL at that one.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

where does the radio talk about dean, ted and gornuk?

‘And now – piertotum locomotor!’ cried Professor McGonagall. And all along the corridor the statues and suits of armour jumped down from their plinths, and from the echoing crashes from the floors above and below, Harry knew that their fellows throughout the castle had done the same.
‘Hogwarts is threatened!’ shouted Professor McGonagall. ‘Man the boundaries, protect us, do your duty to our school!’
Clattering and yelling, the horde of moving statues stampeded past Harry: some of them smaller, others larger than life. There were animals too, and the clanking suits of armour brandished swords and spiked balls on chains.

Good call, but how about this?

In that same dueling club scene, Snape yells, "Expelliarmus" and then proceeds to "thrust" his wand forward to actually "shoot" the spell out of his wand..This creates a very odd timing issue. Does this mean that a wizard can vocalize the incantation and then "shoot" the spell whenever afterwards? I doubt it, but just watch it, it looks weird.

I think around the part near where Harry goes "It sets my teeth on edge." When he is sitting near the tent and the radio is going.

I noticed that too when I watched it in theatre since, in my country, every single line in the film is subtitled. It's the reason I can watch Harry's vision without getting confused too.

Re: Things you didn't spot until the umpteenth time in the HP films v.2

Here's what was said in the movie about Dean Thomas, Ted Tonks and Gornuk.

"A goblin by the name of Gornuk was killed. It is believed that Muggle-born Dean Thomas and a second goblin...both believed to be travelling with Tonks, Cresswell, and Gornuk, may have escaped. If Dean is listening or ayone has any knowledge of his whereabouts....his parents and sisters are desperate for news."

Ha, I noticed that tonight too! I wonder if that was coincidental or done on purpose?

I guess this would qualify more as a mistake, but I'll post it here anyway, since I didn't notice it the first time. After the wedding, when the trio Disapparates, etc, none of them say Voldemort's name, which is how I thought the trackers were able to find them!

Hermione says "If Voldemort really has taken over the Ministry, none of the old places are safe"
