And by the way, what is it that they always mess up with the easy things? I mean, big scenes and all the major things that have been really difficult to do are usually at least satisfying, but then they mess up with tiny details. It’s not so hard to dye Narcissa’s hair blond like it says in the books. It’s not so hard for Dumbledore to wear his glasses, it’s not so hard to put the right people in the same class. Tiny, but annoying.

Hmmm.. Greyback does look scary enough, but not as animal-like as I have pictured him…maybe it’s the photograph though. We’ll see.
Narcissa… well… the outfit looks fantastic (I want a coat like that!!) and she seems to have nailed the right expression but the horror that is her hair is a huge let down (didn’t they consult JKR at all there? What the hell happened?)

Eeeewwww. Fenrir doesn’t look remotely like I invisioned him! Neither do any of them. Teenage Tom was supposed to look EXACTLY like the memory. Fenrir was supposed to look normal but with a tattered robe, an unshaven face, slits for pupils in yellowy eyes, and big canine teeth. Narcissa was supposed to look fairly pretty with long white-blonde hair. Slughorn wasn’t supposed to look at all like Fudge! Actually I never really had much of a vision for Slughorn… Lavender was always African American with short black hair. For the Animorphs fans here, think of Cassie. The train station was NEVER a literal train station. It was a white place. White. No shadows no anything. You imagine something, it appears. Like a blank page, waiting for someone to write on it. How can the movie COMPLETELY make EVERYTHING different than my point of view?

Maybe they decided it to be a visual joke for the movie, that Lavendar looks like Hermione for the movie. Maybe they did it on purpose to show Ron choosing a girl who can act as a physical substitute for Hermione.

OMG GREYBACK, got the scary element perfect but personally if im being awkward i think they should thin the face a bit? looks awesome though, dang i wasn’t expecting that!!
narcissa looks kinda like maggie smith?? like the face? sorta?? anyway, she’s got the whole “pure bloods first” look about her, very proud and up her own rear! as for the hair, CALM DOWN GUYS! face is perfect imo.
Tom looks great! very handsome, kind of suspicious face, but theres something in it making him look trust worthy at the same time – perfect casting all in all??
JIM BROADBENT I LOVE YOU, dang how awesome was he in HOT FUZZ? ( i love the movie hot fuzz.. nick frost + simon pegg + jim broadbent = AMAZING ) can’t wait to see him in this!!!!
RUPERT GRINT, argh i love you, dang it can you get much cuter

lavlav doesn’t look how i thought she’d look, but since i first saw who was casted, now when i re-read HBP i see this girl and she fits so well!!! EXCITED
young slughorn – is that jim broadbent made to look younger or a different actor?? looks just like him a few decades back!! wow, well done with him!! suposed to be blonde and balding? hehe argh stop making me excited for this movie when its ages away!!
albus and harry at the train station? WAIT! – have i missed something
whens this scene?? what happens?? argh!! i’ve been on holiday and before that had limited internet access.. so might have missed what happens there?? looks ace though.. LOL @ the guy who said about making use of his scar [london underground map scar] _

jaye.

stop saying cissy looks like Cruella DeVil, she does not!! i think y’all need to rewatch 101 dalmations, ONLY similarity is hair colour, but even then cruella is right one colour, left another, and BLACK to WHITE not BROWN on top and BLONDE, she’s lucius’ WIFE, not sister/mother/daughter, she’s bella’s sister who has BLACK hair, it’s rare to find sisters – one with white hair, the other with black.
and whoever said why is she wearing muggle clothes? whens the last time you went to a shopping centre or something? look around you, no one dresses like that!! it’s either very fashionable clothes from decades ago or a cross between robes and a dress or something.
and the person who said narcissa killed their anticipation of the movie needs to get real, seriously!!! how can ya say that? it’s one character, not even a major role!

IMHO i think she looks awesome!! very proud and up herself, strong looking and looks really fearless.. will be interesting to see her go from this to how she is at the end of deathly hallows, fearing for her son’s life, terrified and tired.
dang it i’m totally excited

I know it’s too much to hope that Narcissa’s the curvy lady I imagine, but could she AT LEAST look like Makani’s drawings? Goodness, I don’t think Lucius would tolerate someone that aged that gracelessly….

Is this a joke? I mean, seriously, IS THIS A JOKE?

And, WHAT is that dead squirrel doing on top of that poor woman’s hair?

I always said that Joely Richardson was born to play Narcissa and this “Narcissa” does absolutely nothing to dissaude me from that belief.

To begin with, and I mean this with all due respect, but she simply is not attractive enough. Narcissa should be beautiful. Not perfect, but beautiful. This woman ain’t it.

Second, where is the aristocratic bearing? I guess she is trying to appear haughty, but between those ghastly clothes and her age, she looks more like an embattled flight attendent determined not to put up with any more of the passengers’ crap.

The hair speaks for itself.

What a shame. Like I said, Joely has the beauty, bearing and ability to have made an amazing Narcissa.

This other woman is a catastophy.

"It's a Remembrall!" he explained. "Gran knows I forget things -- this tells you if there's something you've forgotten to do. Look, you hold it tight like this and if it turns red -- oh..." His face fell, because the Remembrall had suddenly glowed scarlet
