Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Review
"Hogwarts has changed,” explains a bruised and battered Neville  Longbottom (Matthew Lewis) as he welcomes fellow wiz-kids Harry (Daniel  Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) back to the  once-illustrious School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  He’s  not kidding. From the sinister opening sequence – in which students are  marched rank-and-file through a misty courtyard, surrounded by a horde  of cloaked Dementors – to the monumental closing battle that reduces it  to smouldering rubble, this certainly isn’t the warm, fuzzy  home-from-home we’re used to…

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer

The first full trailer for the final Harry Potter movie, Deathly Hallows Part 2, has finally landed online. Unloading a batch of impressive new footage from the film, this closing chapter in the Potter saga sees the events of over a decade of filmmaking finally come to a climax.

So Harry Potter faces evil wizard Voldemort in Hogwarts, which becomes the setting for a frankly humongous battle between witches, wizards, Death Eaters and – according to this trailer – giant flaming snakes.

The 100 Greatest Female Characters
7) Hermione Granger
The Character:  A clever clogs whose intelligence helps her do cool tricks with a magic wand, Hermione is this generation’s finest girl-geek.   Don’t believe us?  Give it ten years, and Hermione will be even higher up this list.  The Actress: Hundreds auditioned, but stars will out.  So it was that nine-year-old Emma Watson, without a professional credit to her name, bagged the role of her short lifetime.

Daniel Radcliffe talks The Woman in Black
Daniel Radcliffe has spoken exclusively to Total Film about ghostly Victorian chiller The Woman in Black. As the last installment in the Harry Potter franchise approaches fast, Radcliffe told us about his next move: “It’s one of the great challenges, to get people to buy me as something else.” Radcliffe’s character, Arthur Kipps, is “a father and a widower - two things I don’t have direct experiece of.”
The Woman in Black is directed by Eden Lake’s James Watkins, with a screenplay by Jane Goldman. “I would call it a character-driven horror film, along the line of The Orphanage or The Others" said Radcliffe. "It’s slow-burning and it’s very, very scary.”

30 Life Lessons From Action Movies
6) Harry Potter (2001-2011)
The Life Lesson: If you’re not born special, don’t bother.
How It’s Taught: Great people aren’t born great, but they are born with the potential to be great, so if you aren’t born with said potential, you may as well give up. In Potter-land, people can be neatly divided into those who can do magic, and those who can’t.
The muggles are well documented as being inferior to witches and wizards, but there’s even the pejorative term “squib” to be applied to those born into wizarding families who can’t do magic themselves. They’re just as run-of-the-mill as muggles it seems, suggesting the only one worth hearing about, are the special ones. How heartwarming.

First Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 image online
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 cast a fair spell over the world when it was released last November, scooping up quite a few pennies and critical kudos. And it looks like the final instalment in the film franchise is set to be the series’ most dramatic yet, if the first image from the film is to be believed. Released via Cinema Blend, the pic shows student Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis) caught up in the epic final battle at Hogwarts, where many a character bites the dust.

Review Of The Year 2010

2010. What a year.

Just 11 or so months ago, the movie landscape was a very different place. Guillermo del Toro was about to direct The Hobbit. Avatar hadn’t quite become the big blue movie that could. And nobody had any clue what Inception was.

The Evolution of Tom Felton
1) The Borrowers (1997)
Tom Felton lent his cherubic features to a number of adverts before he made his feature debut in The Borrowers (the movie version, not the Ian Holm-starring TV show). It must have been a useful Potter-preparation exercise for the then nine-year-old, as he gained experience of appearing in an adaptation of a well-loved children’s book, worked on a fun, large-scale set, and appeared alongside future Potter stars Jim Broadbent and Mark Williams.
