Carina - if you don't mind SPOILERS....






Then yes, there is a scene added in the film where the Weasley's houe is destroyed.  I think it was only added because the director wanted to show the effect of Voldemort's return on everyday life for witches and wizards.  Personally, I think they should have just kept scenes from the book in that were cut from the film instead of flming something entirely new.  And yes, the Horcruxes were hardly mentioned until the very end of the film, which I thought was disappointing.

I completely agree. I mean, as a composed movie it works to add that- but the books are so perfect how they are. Adding a scene seems as if it is taking away from the story slightly.

I still thought the movie was great though

Oh yes, same here. Though I've always thought the films have never really done justice to the books.  I guess that's because the books are just so rich with detail that it would be impossible to replicate within a 2-3 hour slot.  Hopefully that's where the 2 films for Deathly Hallows will work well.

You are totally right. They are so personal, when you read the books it is like almost a conversation.. or relationship. Trying to share that with an audience is difficult. I'm sure with Deathly Hallows they will have more room to add the detail we all love.

I'm also disappointed about the horcruxes. They are actually my favorite part of the book.

Me too! Even though they are scary.. and frustrating.

Where do the Weasleys live after their house is destroyed? Do they magically build another one?

As far as I remember it didn't say?  I would guess they would be able to repair their old one with magic.

You're absolutely right and your description is really beautiful.

Awe, why thank you! I am very passionate about my HP  Maybe a little too much.... if that's possible. 

I had never thought about what happens to the Weasleys afterwards... that is an interesting point. I guess they would have to rebuild it somehow. Maybe they were able to stop the fires? Or maybe they moved in to Sirius' house for the time?

I completely agree. The movies are good, I especially like the scenes in Hogwarts, because it's just the way I always imagined it and it seems like such a beautiful (and secure) place. But the movies can not stick up to the books. I was confused and then pretty disappointed too that they changed the whole story with the horcruxes. They gave the movie a whole different direction with introducing them so late, I mean, that was the whole point in the last book, wasn't it?! Anyway, I also hope that it'll help splitting Deathly Hallows up.

I certainly think it will. They have done a pretty good job so far, we can't lose faith yet! These next movies are going to be so emotional for us all who have been fans since before the movies. It will be over  . When LotR: RotK came out, I was in shambles and I had only been a fan for 4 years at that point. With HP it's been 10 years. Has anyone seen the sneak peek for Deathly Hallows?

I'm not sure where it is, I will ask my friend who showed it to me. It looks AWESOME.
