New HP7 video game gameplay video now online!

Just found on YouTube by us today, a new gameplay video of the newest Harry Potter
video game, showing some brand-new clips from the official game.

Reviews of the game have also started to appear online as well.

but a review of the game by this site can be expected in the near future.

After four long days,
Harry Potter fans have
finally begun to voice their
thoughts about this latest

movie series.

Below are some reviews
found through rottontomatoes.com .


-"A water-treading sequel serving as a setup for next summer's grand finale."

-"The best-looking and best-acted film in the series so far. Drags a bit in the
middle act. Otherwise, a solid wind-up for the grand finale."

-"There is much to love in the latest offering from the Potter franchise."

$338,802,832 worldwide, and is expected to continue its steady

REVIEW: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One!

After seeing the film at its midnight US premiere,
I can now share a brief NON-SPOILER review
of the film.

The film's story seemed to flow better then any of
the previous films of the series, and the keen
attention to even most of the smallest details
was gratifying to both book and movie fans alike.


The acting from the younger actors, I can also say, seems to improve with each new film.

Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One Soundtrack

One day after its release, I can now say I have finished the
soundtrack from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One

The music was, I think, much different then that from previous
Harry Potter movie soundtracks. A much quicker, edgier pace
then any we've seen before.

Being a fan of the music from John Williams,
I naturally perfer his Harry Potter themes,
but Alexandere Desplate comes, in my opinion,
better then any of the composers for Harry Potter films 4-6.


As far as rating the seventh soundtrack as a whole,
I'd happily give it a 8 out of 10, and highly reccomend
the soundtrack to fans of either Harry Potter,
or soundtrack listeners in general.

HP7 soundtrack now in stores!

Starting today, the official soundtrack for the upcoming
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One film.

Now available through most major retailers,
the music can be found online also.

On the itunes online store, it was announced that
the soundtrack comes with exclusive bonus themes,
not including the 20 songs available in either package.

However, I would highly reccomend the itunes offer
over the regular CD.

The itunes offer includes several bonus tracks, a documentary video,
and a lower price compared with most store offers.
The CD retail price is $18, the itunes offer: $14.

New Harry Potter 7 UK game trailer released online!

Just yesterday, a new combined trailer for the official

Harry Potter games around large action-packed

AMC Entertainment movie theaters offer new, different runtime length for HP7!

According to information provided by amctheatres.com,
a new, different runtime for the seventh Harry Potter film
has surfaced: 150 minutes, exactly two and a half hours long.

From what we heard only a week ago, the film's previous
runtime was estimated just shy of 147 minutes.
A difference of a little over three minutes, overall.
Not much change, some might argue,
but to HP fans, the longer, the better.
A movie description was also available on AMC's website:

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts.
The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort's Death Eaters have seized control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts,
terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them.
But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort:
Harry Potter".

"Harry's only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him.
As he searches for clues, he uncovers the legend of the Deathly Hallows.
And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.
No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
See it in IMAX at select locations."

New Harry Potter 7 movie clip released exclusively on yahoo.com

The clip, although only a minute long,
showed what looks to be an impressive,
yet dark, bar fight scene.

as an all-out brawl with Harry, Ron, and Hermione
on one side, and two disguised Death Eaters on the other.
