Went to see OotP again today. Caught a few nice touches I didn't see in the first go round.

It got me thinking about all the movies. I still think that PoA was my favorite so far. Just the 'feel' of it was so true to the book. After watching OotP the second time, I think it's now my 2nd favorite.

Now I also have a real 'dirty old man' reason for liking PoA so much as well. Think about it and tell me that the director, Alfonso Cuaron, was not totally fascinated with Emma Watson's most attractive rear end!

There were so many shots of her from the rear, which could have just as easily been done from the front. And the scene when Harry and Hermione are watching themselves from the woods, I mean, come on! And in GoF and OotP, there are hardly ANY shots of her from the back! Maybe she noticed what Cuaron did and got it written into her contract, NO butt shots!

It's really wrong of me to dwell on my admiration of the charming and lovely Ms. Watson. Good grief! She's young enough to be my Granddaughter!

All that said, I really did enjoy OotP again. I paid particular attention to Ivana Lynch's scenes and and confirmed my original feeling that she is just absolutely perfect as Luna!

Can't wait for the HBP movie! I know a lot of people really seem to dislike the book, but a lot of them are the anti-Ginny/Harry crowd. To each their own. I had a feeling by GoF that Ginny and Harry were going to be a couple. Can't explain why exactly, but I did.

I hasten to assure all my flist and readers that I love you even if you are anti-Ginny. And I won't even say why I'm so anti-Ron/Hermione.

Heh, it's tough being only a partial OBHWF shipper. It's not easy for me to find good Ron/Hermione without the side of Harry/Ginny, just as I imagine it's hard for you to find good Harry/Ginny without the Ron/Hermione!

And I can't blame you for your interest in Emma Watson. I'm old enough to be Matt Lewis' mother, and I can't stop looking at him! It'd be hypocritical of me to say anything!

True enough. The development of Ron's personality in the books seem to me to make him rather possessive and, yes, even something of a bully viz-a-viz witches. Not abusive or anything, just chauvinistic. I really love how Ginny just totally ignores him and I really get PO'd at Harry for wanting Ron's 'permission' to be with Ginny.

Sorry, didn't mean to rant there. I know that Matt Lewis has talked about the amount of makeup the have to do to him to make him look so 'Neville-ish' I really love the way he sort of 'came of age' in OotP.

I truly hope Emma stays in show biz after all the HP movies are done. I don't pay that much attention to show biz gossip, but she seems sort of ambivalent about whether she'll continue acting.

Dan, Emma and Rupert remind me of another trio of actors that started out big and only one made. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, of course. Dan appears to be the one whose career seems to have unlimited potential. Hopefully he can avoid most of the pitfalls that seem to plague teen actors, i.e., drugs, booze and truly radical, bizaaro behavior.

Three cheers for Harry/Ginny!
