The HP Exhibition was just as good as before! I never noticed Snape's wand until today.... and damn, Snape wears a lot of dark purple.... it just looks black in the movies. And I BOUGHT THE ELDER WAND! It makes me feel so powerful! I'm cosplaying as Grindelwald as I type. :) I went with my friends. One of them, who happens to be an even MORE obsessed fan than I, bought Harry's wand. My other friend bought an Azkaban shirt.
So, fellow Potter fans, if you live in New England, come to the Museum of Science and see the Exhibition before it apparates to its next destination on February 10, 2010.
It's finally in Boston. I'm going with my two best friends. I'm so excited! I'm wearing my sweatshirt today as well~
I'm very much excited. I feel lucky... I'm seeing heaven for a second time. This time, I'll be sure to buy a replica of Dumbledore's FABULOUS wand (aka the Elder Wand!) at the gift shop! I already own a Golden Snitch that opens to put one small trinket in (I put a stone I drew the sign of the DH on, of course) Unfortunately, I couldn't find any invisibility cloaks.... maybe they're hiding! *bad joke*
Saw it at midnight.....
IT WAS EFFING EPIC!!!!
Dan was sexy as usual. So was Alan Rickman, of course.... but Tom Felton is pretty hot too.
Here's a bombshell for all of y'all.....
After seeing this, I don't mind Ginny as much as I used to. She's pretty cool in the movie...nowhere near as obnoxious as Book Ginny.
Another shocker: I didn't overreact to the H/G kiss. At all. In fact, I'll tell you how the scene lays out.
She takes Harry to the Room of Requirement to hide the HBP's book, and she tells him to close his eyes. She hides the book for him, and as Harry keeps his eyes firmly shut, she leans in and she kisses Harry lightly, then leaves. (No Harry/Ginny makeout, thank God!)
SLUGGY WAS MUGGLE-FORKING POIFECT! He made me laugh, cry, everything!
DUMBLEDORE WAS EPIC! He was like Moses, Gandalf, and, well, Dumbledore all mixed together! When he died, I actually cried!
HARRY + FELIX FELICIS = DAN IN REAL LIFE! He completely becomes hyper and like his real-world self. I couldn't help but smile.
HERMIONE WAS AWESOME, AS WAS WON-WON! Lavender was a total stalker, Luna was muggle-forking EPIC, and Cormac reminded me of Robert Pattinson. (No offense, but.....Eeeeewwww!!!!)
IN THE MOVIE, HERMIONE ACTUALLY HAS BUSHY HAIR, DUMBLEDORE WEARS HIS HALF-MOON SPECTACLES, AND SLUGGY KICKS SERIOUS ARSE. TOM RIDDLE WAS EFFING CREEPY.
Best lines/scenes/stuff in general:
Harry (while talking to Slughorn and Hagrid about Aragog): Pincers! *makes clicky noises and does hand gestures*
Snape (to Cormac, who has just puked on our favorite greasy-haired one's shoes): Detention for ten weeks, Mr. McClaggen.
Everything and anything involving Quidditch, Won-Won and Lav-Lav, rock music, and bird-throwing.
The Cave scene was muggle-forking INCREDIBLE. I literally started crying as Dumbledore was force-fed the potion by Harry, and stared in awe as Dumbledore set an inferno and kills all the Inferi, while parting the lake ala Charlton Heston.
AND THE BEST LINE IN THE ENTIRE MOVIE.....
Ron (to Harry, after Harry's just left the Room of Requirement- he and Ginny just hid the HBP's book and kissed): So, Harry, did you and Ginny do it?
My response to this quote from Ron was a facepalm, followed by the most insane bit of laughter you will ever hear, EVER.
MY RATING: 5/5. 10/10. 5 STARS. A+. THE BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!
Anybody think the way Dan says Horcruxes in the footage is PERFECT? I love that way....."Hore-crux-es" ooh it's so soothing to hear him say it. And Dumbledore's got the wilty hand! :D Yay for details!!!!!!!
Dan saying Horcruxes: 00:36
Malfoy's haircut: 00:46
Dumbledore's green-screen glove: 2:22
My rating: A+++++
Pros: Dan's hair, Dumbledore, Malfoy's new haircut, seeing Dan as Harry again
Cons: Harry/Ginny, Rupert Grint/evil non-black Lav-Lav
