Oh god, that's soooo horrible you got spoiled. I was watching an OotP video on youtube and I saw a reply to a reviewer -- the video was safe -- that said 'thanks for spoiling the book for everyone!' (but probably with a lot more typos and netspeak), and I scrolled up without looking until I could sc...

I'm actually pretty concerned that someone in the airport or on my plane is going to spoil it for me. I have about 24 hours of travel starting Friday at 1:30. I'm concerned someone will either (a)have read spoilers online and talk about it at the Joberg airport or on the plane or (b) have read the ...

i wonder that everyone is upset about the lack of closure concerning Sirius' death... Harry never gets any closure for Sirius death in the books, either. no funeral. no body. no time to adjust or say a proper goodbye. Harry doesn't even get to grieve properly in the books. Dumbledore's death is a s...

Sorry, your friend is right. Voldemort's nose is CGI -- they sort of drew pencil lines around his nose where they'd change it. I think it's discussed in the extras in the GoF DVD, or if not, then some interview about it. I remember Dan talking about having to imagine it while they were filming. Okay...

I never saw any other Fantastic Four movie... so I can't judge based on that criteria I guess.

I know superhero movies need a little cheese, but this was ...

Only if I were rich though. Generally dressing up to get married seems sort of against the point to me, but in this case a wedding would just be an excuse to dress like a Disney princess (husband? who? oh, right, that guy :stoned:).
