Eeeeeeeee! Two trailers for Half-Blood Prince: here. It looks SO good.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kelbelle and [livejournal.com profile] mcsister, I was reminded that were it not for sucky powers-that-be, I could be watching HBP this weekend, instead of clumsy Mary Sues and sparkly vampires. So then I was all depressed, but these trailers help a little. ::grin::

Come on, July!!!

janiejones: ([hp] reading book 7)
Well, I've finished... And all I can say is that I am highly entertained at the mere thought of the fandom wank that is going to commence (and probably has already).

Not that I want to read it. Those people are scary.

We're off to see OotP in about an hour. I have HP on the brain; last night I actually dreamed about HP, like, more than once. Like a night of HP dreams, only one of which was that we all discovered book seven was not going to be the last book, but that we were going to have to wait several more years for a book eight.

I woke up in a cold sweat.

Hee.

I saw a thing on Yahoo that said one-fifth of HP readers surveyed said they were going to skip to the last page of DH to find out if Harry lives or dies. I know I will be tempted to, but I cannot actually imagine myself doing so.

Only one more week!

Also, Psych is back! Yay!

Ralph Fiennes Cast as Voldemort

All right. It's not bad enough that Snape melts my butter, now I'm going to faint at the sight of Voldemort?

And I will faint, believe me. Ralph Fiennes takes my breath away.

Now all they need to do is cast Gabriel Byrne and Christian Bale, and these films will be the most holy objects at the altar of my lustful obsession.

My aunt just told me that my cousin will be marching in the Ft. Meade(e?) color guard in the procession for Reagan's funeral. That's pretty cool, and apparently is going to look great on his resume.

We saw Prisoner of Azkaban Friday night, and I'll try not to repeat everyone else's comments here, but...LOVED IT. I think it was a beautiful film and really, really well-done. I think Cuaron had a perfect vision for it, and it matched pretty well what I had in my head. [livejournal.com profile] austin360 summed up the few gripes I had with the film, but overall, I am totally in love with it. Definitely my new favorite of the three, and now of course, I am DYING to see Mike Newell's take on 'Goblet of Fire.' World Quidditch Cup! Mad-Eye Moody! Madame Olympus! The Yule Ball!

Gary Oldman was fantastic, just perfection. But then, he's always perfection. He inhabits a role the way almost no one else can. Whether he's Sid Vicious, Ludwig van Beethoven, Rosencrantz (Guildenstern?), or Sirius Black, he totally fills the role and I forget he's Gary Oldman. Except when I don't, but that's only because I think he is lovely and he has sexy thin lips and I adore him and would have his babies. Totally.

Also, I'll be the odd man out here and say that I also loved David Thewlis as Lupin. I think he's a wonderful actor, and I really liked him in this. I don't think he was Lupin the way Gary Oldman was Sirius, but I did like him very much. But then, I'm biased because I like David Thewlis a lot. And I am so going to re-read After the End this week now.

Needed more Emma Thompson, though I thought they did a good job giving us the Trelawney 'flavor.'

In short: Will definitely see it as many times as possible. Loved the gorgeous scenery, the R/H moments, and all the actors and characters.

Now I am off to whore my resume to the cities of Dallas and Tulsa. Wish me luck!

Some great new shots from Prisoner of Azkaban up at DanRadcliffe.com, although I'm distracted by how much Draco is looking like Aaron Carter these days.
janiejones: (gary sex god)
Thanks for the loan of the Sirius icon, Em, it's amazing!

And speaking of Sirius, what does everyone think of casting Gary Oldman in the role? Personally, I think it's a brilliant bit of casting, but then I've been a Gary Oldman fan for years and years. I think he'll make a terrific Sirius. And a sexy one. But that's just me; I know I'm in the minority of those who find Gary Oldman sexy.

Random thoughts on HP casting )

When the systems at work are down, this is what I come up with. Do I have philosophical insights or nostalgic reminisces, or hell, even plot ideas? NO! I pen a half-assed entry on the Harry Potter casting. Jaysis.
