    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    Lol yup :P I did grow up on it actually, but still I defend for more than that. Although my age generally fell perfectly in line with Harry's +/-1 year each book. And I was entering middle school when I first began to read HP and I graduated high school this year and then it was Harry's last year as well :P So that in and of itself adds a slight extra layer to everything.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    Yeah thats actually what I was thinking which is interesting because is goes for kids book-like to a lot of more fantasy. Also I grew up pretty much alongside Harry Potter which was interesting because it just fit really well. He ended up a year younger than me by the end but at some points along the series he was older than me so it all evened out :P Anyways his last year of school corresponded with my last year of high school (even if Year 7 really didn't take place at Hogwarts).

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    I really liked it personally, and now in contrast, it is such a dark book when compared to the first. I mean it had been working up to this point but now comparing the two is like black and white. HP1: -Dumbledore is good -Snape is bad -Malfoy is bad -Dursleys are bad -Ministry and media is good HP7: -Dumbledore isn't perfect -Snape is not only not bad but good -Draco Malfoy is just of differing opinion and his parents regret having anything to do with Voldemort -Petunia Dursley is just jealous of her sister's ability and Dudley cares about Harry -Ministry and media is bad

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    First off, this is for people who've read the book or don't care about spoilers as opposed to the pre-release thread which is for people who are still contemplating what could happen for whatever reason. I thought the ending was really good, but the one thing was that it seemed like Harry Potter pulled an Aslan with the Christ-like death/rebirth/everyone is saved because of love. But hey, it's not an original theme but it was well done. What did everyone else think? Also, please if you don't really want to discuss Harry Potter just don't post. I don't know why it became such a badge of honor to dis Harry Potter but it really isn't original, and we all get the point: the book is fantastic, childish and too popular to actually be good or worth reading and therefore deserves awkward derisive comments every time someone mentions it. Obviously, it's trash and children should be reading Finnegan's Wake or some kind of real literature. Great. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's move on with a real discussion.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    Wrong. She planned to write 7 books. Maybe she didn't expect it to get so big, but like many fantasy authors, she had a long series planned out. Next time you go to the bookstore, look in the Science-Fiction/Fantasy section and tell me how many of the books exist as standalone stories that aren't tied to some seemingly endless series. Seven books is downright small in comparison. And as for her not expecting it to become what it has, I doubt anyone is capable of predicting cultural phenomena to that extent, but it doesn't make her plan any different. She just ended up writing for millions of worldwide fans as opposed to hundreds of British fans.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    Well, its been leaked. SPOILER WARNING: POTENTIAL USER COMMENTS WITH SPOILERS http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/07/17/235207 Now I'm scared to go on the internet until I purchase/finish the book. Especially on forums and blogs, and *******ELY YTMND (which I think I may have seen the last page of the book but didnt read the whole thing and assumed it was fake). Anyway, yeah, watch out.

    Calm Down, Apple.

    I have recently decided that for college I am going to get a MacBook with Parallels, and run MacOS X, Windows Vista, and Ubuntu simultaneously.

    Proof that D&D is evil

    I wasnt really expecting to get called on what I said, but good point. I was actually just in a bad mood and saying it kinda angrily/tounge-in-cheek but I'm really not gonna argue your point because I can't. It's more just a commentary on the situation.

    Proof that D&D is evil

    I think the problem here is that the parents were playing D&D.. I mean it's cool and all for adults to play games, but they're parents for fucks sake, they should be raising nerdy kids to play D&D, not neglecting the kids and doing it themselves.

    Skulltag 97D Beta 4 Released!

    Yay Carnevil's back! Although he never really left the community..
  11. Like every Harry Potter move it made no sense out of context, had crappy acting, and was only seen by me out of some fan-boyish compulsion. I really have never liked a Harry Potter movie and yet I love the books. I know people who love both and people who only like the movie, but the movies have always seemed like badly acted, watered down versions of the book which don't carry their own story but instead assume the viewer already knows the story enough that it doesn't have to hold itself together.

    Live Free Or Die Hard

    I was amazed by how much it didn't suck. I saw it twice because it was just so much fun to watch. The hilariously unrealistic truck vs. plane scene and the Hollywood hacking didn't even turn me off to it. As far as raw, pointless action movies go, this was really well done.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    yeah okay good point it isn't like it's one of the biggest phenomena of the last decade or responsible for introducing countless numbers of children to reading or actually fun to read or anything thank you for reminding me how much the series sucks and how unpopular it is harry potter, its not something you just read for fun, its not a good story, its, ITS A SERIES OF BOOKS

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    she may have killed harry but I personally think that it isn't necessary to do so like some said. In many ways, killing off the main character is such a cliche emotion-jerker that it could be better if she didn't kill him. Killing off the main character is a cheap way to make a story a tragedy in many cases. It can work, but it might not work and it's not a give in when your writing these kinds of stories.
