Mysteries of Harry Potter?
« on: July 20, 2007, 03:17:21 pm »
Okej, so here we can talk about things like: in which circumstances does J. K. Rowling named the person Sirius B.?

Does she listen to Therion? :roll:
But then again, who does.

No, I think it doesn't have connection with Therion  :lol3: Just compare the release dates...
but I also think that the name isn't random  ???
Therion lyrics are often coming from myths, philosophy and so on - and where is written, that miss Rowling have never read or heard the same thing which the lyrics of Therion (or the name of album) is later coming from?  :roll-eyes:

Sure, I thought the same. :)

This all means that Rowling is interested in the same things like us Therion fans. I'm always wondering how easy is to connect the things in life, even the seemingly distant ones.

Yeah, it's very amazing...
Yesterday, when I was watching the movie in cinema. There was another interesting thing. When miss Umbridge (if is it written like this, I hope it is) came to control the school. It almost look like (Vlad's favourite  ;D ) "inquisition" or more - nazist. The commisions on the wall or  symbol on the great pendulum during the Exams. All written by black, or red ink... Sometimes the type looks like schwabach...

But maybe I'm just paranoid and mad  :wacko:  :lol3:

I thought the same and this is one of the reasons why I didn't really like the film. In the book there isn't a single allusion to that, and the film-makers just use that cliche to influence us... :mad:

Jo jo... I'm sure that it is a reason why in most countries is the movie on view only for children up 12  :-\

I'd bet the dementors have to do with that too. ;)

Maybe this can help out a bit. See the other names of the star? Canis Majoris. The latin denomination for the dog is Canis familiaris, so I think Sirius' name and Animagus version very carefully chosen  :wink2:

Plus, I wouldn't put it past Rowling to use Sirius Black because the name sounds cool and slightly latinish.

When I told someone about the Therion album, first thing they thought about was Harry Potter. (Bunch of ignorants! :lol3: )
I haven't seen the new movie yet, no opinion on it. But I've read the book, and I say it was worth it.  ^_^

I tried reading Barry Trotter when he first came out (no pun intended)... flipped a few pages then called it quits. Didn't catch me.

I prefer Pratchett over Tolkien over Rowling.

I guess "Black" is a good name for a family so deeply connected to the "dark lord".

Saw the movie yesterday, I really enjoyed all the afternoon and evening (I was there with my bf, we spent some time shopping in neighbour town, He bought a DVD, I bought a book and some beads (you´ll surely find them on my homepage sooner or later :)  ), then we had a wonderful dinner and finished the evening with a visit in cinema :) About the movie - it´s a bit different to the others (again) but it´s ok, I like it - it´s easy to watch. I found the book more difficult to read - book 6 I found easier to read. Miss Umbridge is a bad character, poor actress who had to play her :) But I absolutely loved the sequence where Filch sits in front of the wall ...  :lol3:

Don't mention it  :wink2:

I like Tolkien waaay over Rowling too, but that doesn't make Harry Potter less reaable!  :insane:

Hey folks,

I bought the latest and final volume on Saturday and had finished it before Sunday night, just to be sure I'd read the end before some moron goes and tells me. Just in time, I might add... the moron was the local newspaper which printed a large article, giving away the end in the hugely printed headline. :mad:

Cheers!

Watched the latest movie yesterday.
If you've not seen it yet, I recomend it.
BTW, I really liked this girl that played Luna Lovegood, she's really good looking. :biggrin:
