LrdPhoenix: The Voice of Doom: (like rubbing Voledmort's not existing nose into the fact that Voldemort's killing of a ready-to-sacrfice-himself-for-the-others Harry meant that everybody was protected from Voldemort, master of the Elder Wand or not)

Huh, having not read the books, I never thought of that.  Makes sense given the whole origin story for Harry Potter.  Harry sacrificing himself for everyone would put the same protective spell on them as it did on him when his parents sacrificed themselves for him.

Kind of a big hole in Voldemort's power though if every time someone sacrifices themselves for other people that he can't touch the people they sacrificed themselves for.


Yep. Old Voldy was never capable of love, nor of understanding the power of love. That's why every step he took along the way just alienated his supporters and galvanized his enemies.

1. Voldy threatened Lily Potter, so Snape turned on him and became Dumbledore's man through and through.
2. Voldy killed Lily and she died to protect her son, giving Harry special resistance to Voldy's killing curse.
3. Years later, Voldy completely alienates the Malfoys by setting up Draco to fail at murdering Dumbledore.
  a. And because he set Draco on Dumbledore, Draco became the Master of the Elder Wand rather than Snape as Dumbledore had intended.
  b. If Snape had been the Master, Voldemort would have succeeded in taking the Elder Wand. Oops.
4. Snape's love for Lily directly lead to V's defeat, thanks to the Sword of Gryffindor.
5. The Malfoys abandon Voldemort because of how he treats them. If he'd not been such a dick, he could have taken the Elder Wand.
6. Harry sacrifices himself to keep his fighters safe the same way Lily's sacrifice kept him safe.
7. Narcissa chooses Draco over Voldemort when she doesn't tell Voldy Harry is still alive.
8. And, the lynchpin in the battle, Harry choosing to save Draco's life in the Room of Requirement meant that when Narcissa asked if Draco was alive, he'd be able to say yes. If Harry had let Draco die, all would have been lost, but Harry knew Draco was being pulled by forces outside his control. Draco may be a dick, but he wasn't evil, and he was just as much a victim of circumstance as Harry was.

For so-called "children's literature," the Harry Potter series has some really deep plots and twists, and the characters (aside from Voldemort) are all very well-rounded.

This.  Just like Twilight.

Hm, thinking about it, that's somewhat..ironic? Unfortunate?
Because Draco was always like "My father this, my father that! Wait till my father hears about this!"

LiQuid!: It's criminal that Jason Isaacs is "Actor who played Lucius Malfoy."  That guy acts circles around most of the casts in those movies.  Go watch the Showtime show Brotherhood to see probably the best work he's ever done.  One of my favorite shows from start to finish.


Name one adult actor he acts circles around. Now, I'm not saying Jason Isaacs sucks. He's brilliant. But the Harry Potter movies have been graced by some of the most talented actors of our time. He's a good fit for the ensemble.

thecpt: I really didn't like that the malfoys weren't in hogwarts in the last scene like in the book.


There were some changes to the ending that I thought worked better in the film (and as much as I like the films, I'm pretty damned critical about the differences), but that bit really irked me too.  For all of their treachery and acting as though they were wizard royalty, in the end, they just wanted their son safe and to be done with all of it.  It added some humanity to the characters.  Honestly, I pitied them throughout that book.

Isaacs was perfectly cast.  Hell, he might've made for a great Snape as well.

I thought them walking away after Voldemort mocked the side-changing Draco was a good move given how they changed the finale and left out most of what Harry is saying to Voldemort (like rubbing Voledmort's not existing nose into the fact that Voldemort's killing of a ready-to-sacrfice-himself-for-the-others Harry meant that everybody was protected from Voldemort, master of the Elder Wand or not)

IIRC the movie focused more on the ownership of the Elder Wand during the showdown.
Voldemort having driven away the Malfoys shortly before worked pretty well with Harry explaining Draco's role to Voldemort and Voldemort realizing how he might have won had he treated Draco and his parents differently and that he would have had to kill the now-out-of-reach Draco instead of Snape.

meat0918: Draco was just a child, and his father used his child to save his own hide.


It has been a while but it is my recollection that Draco was actually saving his family.  If my memory serves, the Mafloy family(Lucius, Narcissa and Draco) was basically on the brink of being executed by V for various failures.  Draco was put in the position of having to save them.  V didn't really expect him to successful engineer a means of getting through Hogwartz defenses.  Lucius, I think, came to realize that V was much more dangerous than he initially believed and was trying to save his family from V but had to rely on his son to do so.

Valiente: The only tragic loss here is the absence of a copy editor. "Valdemort", really?



That irked me too, cripes.

That being said, I love Jason Isaacs, and think he did great at Lucius...Menacing when he could throw his money around, but utterly impotent once the bigger bully returned.

Jason Isaacs is an extremely under-appreciated actor. I think he's awesome. Chews up the scenery every time he's on, then usually spits it in Harry's face. Or Mel's.
