And the sword it's not like something she just happened to be hanging arround with... or running through the forest, while being chased, holding it high

I am ignoring the books. I'm concerned about the film as a film. It sounds rushed and that it doesn't have any narrative arc to it. Things aren't explained at all (Sirius's mirror). I mean if they weren't going to even acknowledge the mirror, why did they even keep it in? It makes no sense at all and it has nothing to do with staying true to the book. I don't care how they explain the mirror, just explain it in some way or cut it out altogether. I am surprised that they didn't beef up the Malfoy Manor scene to be a climax but you know what? I think I get it now. During the filming, the split-point was meant to be before Malfoy Manor after the big new snatcher chase. So perhaps Malfoy Manor is short and rushed because it was meant to be the beginning of the second film. They decided to go back to their original idea of splitting after Malfoy Manor in post-production.

As you say, Meesha, since they cut out Harry's desire for the Hallows and finally getting over it after Dobby's death, they removed a narrative arc from part 1 so now it's just a bunch of action scenes thrown together.

About the characterizations, they have never really been completely accurate to the books so it doesn't jar or surprise me much at all. At this point I care more about the films staying consistent within themselves as a film series.

Re: The Deathly Hallows Movie(s) v7.

Yeah i think it was the leaky one. Hermione has the sword and that is why Bellatrix tortures her which is what happens in the book. Bellatrix is afraid that the trio have been in her vault. Maybe Bellatrix just pulls it out of the beaded bag. Who knows?

PS. I am just talking about the film also. It needs to make sense.

Just listened to the mini Pottercast, and... the Dobby Kreacher scene sounds AMAZING! I can't wait to see Dobby's little beatie eyes again. I hope it is a long scene though!

I can't wait to see how real he looks I still consider he was good CGI back in Chamber of Secrets.

I'm listening to it too and it does sound very well-done! It was an ingenious and inspired idea to have Dobby and Kreacher work together to get Mundungus. It makes up for them cutting Elf Tails from HBP, it establishes Dobby AND Kreacher's character at once (specifically with such a contrast between the two in terms of personalities), it shows how wonderful Dobby is especially compared to Kreacher at the same time as moving the plot forward with them capturing Mundungus and it sounds like a fun, inventive, interesting and cinematic scene as well. It's economical and brilliant.

So many scenes sound very good. How they did The Three Brothers story was inspired as well and Ron's gradual disenfranchisement with the mission sounds well set-up and developed and the scene where he leaves sounds like an acting masterpiece. As does his return in the Silver Doe. They said how the film makes it surprising and heroic when they reveal it is Ron who is saving Harry from the lake. The Ministry/Magic is Might/Umbridge scenes sound frighting and the Nazi parallels are strongly, strongly implied. Bellatrix torturing Hermione sounds like the darkest moment ever with the curse and the whip and the knives and the carving of mudlbood in her arm and Hermione fainting..god, it's almost too much.

So yeah, there is a balance between things sounding meh and things sounding amazing.

I know you could argue that because of the split, more time could be given to it, but it's not completely likely either. I think the sequence will go by quite fast (not nearly as fast as Snapes Worst Memory though, because that would just be an insult to Alan Rickman after all he's done over the years setting up Snape/Lily). So don't cross your fingers, IMO.
After reading and hearing the comments lately from Dan Radcliffe and David Heyman about Snape's character, I'm not that worried anymore. I think Severus will get his due in the last movie.

David Heyman's Comments About Snape Here

Dan Radcliffe: See my signature ~ and more Here

Dan Speaking of the Prince's Tale Scenes: One of the key scenes in the series happens in this room (Dumbledore's Office), where towards the end of ['Deathly Hallows'], Harry learns something about Snape's past in relation to him, and that takes place in this room. In fact, actually, it takes place pretty much here," he said, motioning to where he was standing (as if he has his head in Pensieve). "And that is kind of pretty much possibly the key scene in the series, you might say. There's a certain argument for that."

About Snape's Death Scene with more HERE

From Production Designer Stuart Craig: "The last time I cried was a few days ago when we filmed the death of Alan Rickman's character, Snape. It's quite difficult to cry in rushes -- where we watch the previous day's work -- but he is an extraordinary actor and he dies an extremely good death."

Re: The Deathly Hallows Movie(s) v7.

Yeah, they cut out Harry's obsession for the Hallows, hence his decision to go for the Horcruxes over the Hallows. So Dobby's death will have no meaning at all for the story, it will be just like the deaths at the end of the previous films...

Dobby's death was important because it pushed Harry back to earth, it showed him that he needed to concentrate on the Horcruxes in order to defeat Voldemort, and it made him to get over the Hallows. This decision would have added much more power to the film, making a strong end for Part 1, and setting a promising Part 2.

And I'm worrying about the film as film, not just as a book adaptation.

It is just mentioned in passing that Hermione has the sword. I don't know anymore then that.

PS. I think they could easily just have Bellatrix riffle through Hermione's bag. That would be fine with me. I was just wonder out loud how Bellatrix finds the sword. It seems like a reasonable question.

Re: The Deathly Hallows Movie(s) v7.

I don't understand your question. I am not asking why it mattered. I am just asking what happens in the film. Why is she holding the sword? Does she try to attack someone with it? Does Bellatrix take it from the beaded bag?

The sword is the connection to Gringotts. Harry realizes that Bellatrix was afraid that they were in her vault. He realizes that there is a horcrux in her vault. That is why Hermione would be holding the sword.

Are you asking why it is necessary that she be holding the sword? That is the reason that Bellatrix tortures her. To get information about where they got the sword. We know that is in. The test screeners said it and we have photos of Griphook with the sword.

Re: The Deathly Hallows Movie(s) v7.

I don't know how I feel about Harry's obsession over the Hallows being cut out of the film. When Dobby dies, it made him realise that he should stop obsessing over the Hallows, and focus on the Horcruxes. So I'm a bit iffy over this.

But most thing I've heard sounds amazing. I'm excited for Malfoy's manor the most. It seems like they're going all out for the torture. I was shocked to hear about Bellatrix carving "Mudblood" into Hermione's arm. It actually sounds a bit disturbing. But I'm happy they're not holding back.

Re: The Deathly Hallows Movie(s) v7.

I'm guessing they'll have the conversation where Harry realizes his cloak is a hallow and what's in the Snitch at Xenophilius's house. Then the whole Snatcher thing will start.

I think it should be in the film. I don't get why they cut it.

They better include Ron and Hermione falling asleep holding hands as they have removed every other Ron/Hermione moment.
