Cute. :-b

I like the Harry Potter flicks WAY more than the Narnia stuff. The trailer does look good...they keep getting darker, I like it. ;-D

I've kinda lost interest in the HP films. Adapting bigger books have forced the movies to lose so much of the details that I liked from the books.

Does anyone know if the old rumor about splitting this movie into two happened or not?
The cake is a lie.

This is book 6 it is one part. The rumor was they were splitting book 7 into 2 movies and everything I have seen has that being fairly true. I never heard a word of book 6 being two parts except for people joking that the book was so big it needed to be 2. No serious rumors from sources that I knew of.

Seems like as the books get longer the movies get shorter which makes no sense whatsoever.

If you need to take 3 hours to tell the entire story DO IT. I have no problems sitting through a longer movie and feel satisfied than leave the theater saying "Man they cut a good 400 pages out..."

Hopefully this one will be better than the past few. I remember not caring much for 3 and 4, 5 was alright, hopefully they are swinging back in the right direction.

They haven't really shortened that much, but I agree... they should use 3 hours if they need it. I only left Azkaban feeling they left pertinent stuff out. However, JK works with these films... and upon watching them over and over again, she was right in what she made them leave in and allowed them to take out. The stuff she left out that annoyed me, in the end... after reading all seven... did not need to be in the movies.

for reference:

"Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," 352 pages: Running time -- 2 hours 41 minutes

"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," 448 pages: Running time -- 2 hours 22 minutes

"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," 734 pages: Running time -- 2 hours 37 minutes

"Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," 896 pages: Running time -- 2 hours 18 minutes

"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," 672 pages: Running time -- film to be released in 2008

Yeah I just remember the last one really felt like it could have had another 20 minutes or so.
