My current celebrity crush:

I am in love with Dolores Umbridge. Her portrayal in the new Harry Potter movie was flawed, in that she's not the squat and unpleasant beastie from the book. Instead, she's a despotic grandmother, the incarnation of puritanical order. She was certainly older in my head.

I watched her in awe. I love her shoes. I love the fuzzy shawls she wrapsaround her, as if the secret weapon against the dark was cheerful pink. I love her giggle, and her happy kitten pin.

I don't know, something about prim and proper Victorian melded with despotic autocratic bureaucrat really works for me.

I wonder if she was a Hufflepuff?

*guilt* I feel a little dirty-old-man pervy, but most of the characters were just extremely attractive in this film. There was one scene where Hermoine was well-dressed with her hair pulled back, very pretty, and there were a couple of scnees where Harry was just flat out hot in this film. I think his actor's been working out a bit.

It was MUUUCH better than the book, which, frankly, was teh suck. Well, at least to me, I really didn't like book five at all, but I have no attention span and the writing was kind of padded.

Need to watch it still, but
That's good to hear, even though after re-reading book 5 it wasn't as bad as I recalled it to be. First time I read it I was in high school and probably identified with it a bit too much and found it depressing, I guess. But Harry being an utter ass to everyone was still just really annoying.

Is the scene where Harry watches Snape's traumatic Pensieve-d memory in the movie? I will be sad if it wasn't. I've tried to resist for so long, but Snape is becoming a very interesting character to me...the story is almost more about him than anyone else as the books go on.

She was totally Slytherin. Totally, no doubt about it.
expecially with her yelling "Halfbreeds" at the centaurs.
Oh yeah.. Slytherin.

I enjoyed the movie, but was just a tiny bit let down by it. Ithink the prizoner was the strongest, and teh first one was by far the most magical for me..

thoughm the DA patronus scene did make me cry a little :) :)

I thought it was much, much better than the book, and the directing/visuals of the recent batch (prisoner and forward) have made the first two movies look...well, old. But the first one told the most coherant story.

I think this one might be my favorite so far, so far as film adaptations go.

I also think the actors are "legal" now. So you don't have to feel like as much of a dirty purv.

Yeah, that's true :) Still, an age difference of 10+years is a little awkward-inducing, but as long as I don't have to explain any celebrity crushes to my mother, it's okay :)

Well...
...he was appearing nude onstage in Equus, so he probably has been working out.

Well, now that's a mental image I'm not sure I need at work...
