(HP fan discussion)

OK, not many of you will agree with me, but the books are much better
than the movies. But, who cares, movies have the gorgeous DanR, EmmaW, TomF and the hilarious RupertG.

I really liked movie 1 and 2. Chris Columbus(director) did really well, justified the books and the now soooo famous young actors then were Really Young and cute.

Moving on to Movie 3, what the………..? If you have only watched the movie, I seriously reccomand you to read the book if you want to understand the whole story. I grieve the death of the previous Dumbledore, I prefer him to the new one. The last scene with the firebolt was soo not cool. I was expecting the firebolt to appear in the middle of the movie and maybe a commotion over it! Plus, the scenes were not as grand as in the previous movies. The plot was Very brief, in short, I was let down. Alfonso CuarĂ³n(director)only did well with Buckbeak, the hippogriff.
All the actors grew up to be handsome and beautiful people. Girls scream for Dan and Tom, maybe even Rupert, while boys go for Emma. Emma really was beautiful but I wish that she kept her fussy hair as described in the book.

Now, HP and the Goblet of Fire, expected to come out on nov 18. I dont live in UK so cant comment on movie premiere, I just saw a brief report from BBC. Dan and Tom grow more gorgeous by the day. Emma is as pretty as a princess. Rupert is, well, he has also grown.
The added cast:
– Katie Leung (Cho Chang) cute as pie
– Clemence Poesy (Fleur Delacore) a French beauty
– Stanislav Ianevski (Viktor Krum) a real hunk
– Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory) too bad he appears only in movie 4
– Brendan Gleeson (Mad Eye Moody) you’ll find the “magical” eye comical
– Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort) thank god its not Mr.Bean.
– and many more!
However, if you really cant wait for the movie, check out the HP websites.

Has anyone seen HP and the Goblet of Fire? If you have, I’d be more than happy if you could write its review and I’ll post it for you here.

I was hoping to watch the movie on Fri, like in UK but Fiji’s cinemas are showing it on DEC 5! Talk about unfair!

Facty bit on Toads, this one’s astounding!

For anyone who hates Toads, I’m sorry you have to bear this.

For Toad lovers;

Did you know, a toad has 3 eyes!? the third eye is on top of their head. Well its not actually an eye, its an organ that produces a hormone, melatonin or something like that, (I read about this longago so forgot most of those “nonenglish” names).
I dont know why its called an eye, but I think its because it produces a hormone that detects if its day or night, and controls toad’s response to time of day like sleeping at day and hunting at night,some toads are nocturnal. So, this third eye functions a bit like an eye because it detects light.

Here’s a little joke about toads:
One day a canetoad went to a fortune teller to ask about his prospects of finding a girl for himself. The fortuneteller replied that he would indeed meet a pretty girl!
He met her next semester at a nearby university in her lab class.

Now, there always comes a time when a teen is faced with a toad to dissect in biology lab, I’ll tell you my experience to help prepare those of you who haven’t had the experience:
It started as a bright sunny day, birds were singing, the sea breeze blowing my hair off my face. Everything changed when I went for lab class. This was the day the fortuneteller’s predictions came true. There was a stench of swamp and rotten algae to welcome me at the door, I walked in, then there it was, a black box. The tutor informed us that it contained toads under the effect of chloroform so we had to be careful not to breath in the fumes. Then, came the part when we had to actually take the life of the poor devils, I quote the instructions:
hold them by the legs and bang their head against the table edge until their tongue comes out: end quote.
To be honest, I was more disgusted than feeling sorry so I let my partner perform the deed. Then, there is the usual dissecting, cutting off the skin, muscles and cartilage plates and the boring part of identifying organs and bla bla. Hey, I wasnt that bad at dissection, did a clean job, just one thing to say, the poor third eye must have been smashed after all the bangings.
The most disgusting parts of the lab were the dissection of the stomach to find its contents. Also the dissection of the intestines and rectum then looking at them under a microscope. The contents were enough to make us lose our appetite for lunch, which was just after class, but the smell was, I cannot put it into words! In, conclusion, I went on a diet for the day.

So, dear all, I hope you have happier encounters with toads and dont forget about their 3rd eye when you bang their heads.
