I recall a post static_pixie but generally the thought of everything being about Harry/Ginny instead of Voldie, Draco, Snape etc. There were other posts but I can't remember where they were...

Most peeps have come to the conclusion that the movies simply focus on what the Trio are doing - despite the fact that HBP was the one book where the Trio really didn't factor in as much...
Wait, wasn't the book mainly about all those penseive scenes on Voldie and potions and a bit of sneaking around after Draco? There weren't too many pages on Ginny in comparison...

I try not to give a damn about the movies but then you read a news snippet and then its all wincing and headdesking and you wonder how they're going to shred the characters ya love...
Oh they'll have the scenes but as you mention, the focus seems to be on the romance sub plot. Maybe the romance is supposed to appeal to the masses? But I guess that's what all the promos are going to focus on...I wonder how long the sectumsempra, cave and tower scenes will be...

The thought of the actual content of HBP being left for the first DH film makes me cringe.
Loved them!
THe if Flist Wrote HBP made me roll on the floor in laughter! thanks so much for linking!
Re: Loved them!
Glad you liked it! I figured it's been ages since they were posted and not everyone might have them bookmarked :)
Thanks for the reminder of these. The flist version is espically wonderful.

It's strange that you should mention how you dislike what Yates is doing as I had a complete outburst of rage when PS was on the telly last night and just had to vent on my LJ. I so want to love the films, I really do, but I just can't. And that pains me.
