Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: Ooh, thanks!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: That was good!Avatar ImageKatetheKeeper says: Oh my gosh, I loved it! My dad walked in when I was watching it, and he said he could make bad things happen to people who were mean to him, too!Avatar Imagesnapsforsnape says: I hope that that wasn't the full scene. It was choppy- but then again it was a trailer. I guess we'll have to see. Did anyone notice that in the retrospective exclusive they used trailer music from HBP trailers?Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Once again, I do pray that this does not feature the entire scene, as the editing is still poor and choppy. That said, Tom Riddle was superb in this scene and I look forward to seeing him in the final product.Avatar Imagelunaspec_gimmy says: I actually don't want to watch any more clips of HBP now! Want some suprises for the cinema at least.Avatar Imagemobellatrix says: that was awsome and bone chillin!!!Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: awesome clip!!Avatar Imagecoolbeans3131 says: The retrospective was really good. Makes me want to watch all the films again. Maybe I will before HBP comes out. :)Avatar Imagecoolbeans3131 says: The retrospective was really good. Makes me want to watch all the films again. Maybe I will before HBP comes out. :)Avatar ImageStJaina says: It's beautiful!Avatar ImageStJaina says: It's beautiful!!!Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Looks cool. Loved Tom Riddle. But (suprisingly) I don't want any more HBP clips now, otherwise I won't have anything to watch in the cinema!Avatar ImageDylanAqua says: It is STILL missing a few parts! "You're that Doctor, aren't you?" and Rom looking into the Burning Cabinet to find the box of stolen items, which INSPIRED him to create HORCRUXES!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: That was really good!Avatar ImagePensievePerson says: Disappointed! The most important thing about this scene is Riddle keeping the box of "trophies" They relate to the whole Horcrux thing and not to show it is stupid. Avatar ImagePolly says: Really good! Avatar ImageDanielBonnie28 says: Nice Clip!!!!Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: HA! HA! I beat my craving :]. I'm not watching this one! Partly because I'm eating lunch and I'm a little preoccupied and partly because I feel as though WB has given us too much.Avatar Imagepotterrock says: thatt's great *o*.....tanks for the video :DAvatar ImageKianaCP says: It's a chopped up version for sure. There are things that we had previously seen and are missing in this clip, so I'm not worried. Still I loved it! That kid is really creepy... he seems to play young Riddle really well. Less than a month guys! YAY!Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Ooooh, I loved them both!Avatar Imagekingdom says: thanks!Avatar Imagekingdom says: it's awesome, but it's still choppy, hope in the movie it's completeAvatar Imageiheartpink says: AMAZING!!! i am starting to not totally hate michael gambon as dumbledore. and young riddle was just brilliant!!Avatar ImageWicked_Lady says: Did anyone else think that was kind of... boring?Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: I loved the performance of Riddle. But the scene as a whole did seem a bit choppy and rushed. I hope it is not the complete scene as well. And I'm sorry to nitpick here but what the hell is with the pensive?!?! That is not what it looked like in GOF! Why must they mess with everything from film to film? Have they ever heard of continuity?! At least the pensive in GOF was in a stone basin which is how it is described in the books. Not as a free floating pool of water. And Harry did not fall into it. Which they did do in GOF. Seeing as that is how it is described in the books as well you would think they would keep it. Unless of course this is just a portion of the entire scene in which case I hope to be pleasantly surprised when I see the movie. Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: Just watched the retrospective. Now that was cool! It reminded me how much I love these films. When I do nit pick like above it is out of love. For the characters and their stories. This is the first movie for me post reading of the books so I have a completely different perspective than I have ever had before. No matter how much i nitpick I know I will love the movie as a whole. Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: i can't wait for the new filmAvatar ImageSorcererke says: @ phantomdave79: Actually i don't think they have changed anything on how the pensieve looks. Search for a pic of the pensieve used in GoF and you'll see that the pensieve there is just the one used in HBP but only in a stone base. In the book (HBP) the pensieve is often described as placed on the headmaster's desk and removed from its original place. That's why they made the pensieve look like this in the film, I think. But yeah, you're right about the fact that harry doesn't fall in the pensieve anymore.Avatar ImagePallargast says: Good, althoug hI don't think it's the full clip as they have already released other parts of it. However, they often show clips in the trailers that don't make it into the final film.Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: I loved it. I wasn't supposed to watch it, but I couldn't resist! No more, no more! LOL :DAvatar Imagemaimiaa says: you know i didn't want to watch it but i couldn't help it. but! i really liked the retrospective one it was way cool.Avatar ImageHiren58 says: Wow....wonder why warner bros didnt release that clip before with the rest?? never the less it was awesome...can't wait till HP6Avatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: I hope there's going to be an Extended clip of the Extended clip. It STILL seemed chopped and rushed, even if they added a few more scenes back into it. Why can't they just show us the final product that will be in the movies instead of chopping it?Avatar Imagefelixfelicis11 says: I really hope it's not that choppy. It can't be, like DylanAqua said, it's missing the "You're that Doctor, aren't you?" quote that we KNOW is in there because we heard in in trailers!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: is this the same one that was shown during the MTV movie awards? I guess i'll have to check.Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Awesome. Tom is great. So evil.Avatar ImageHBPIA says: OMG i just saw HBP sticker books, posterbooks, diary and behind the scenes books!! im sooooooo excited!!Avatar ImagelittleL says: That was so awesome, loved how they made it sound and feel like a memory, with echoes etc. (unlike GoF), makes it more eerie. That boy did a great job!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: im gonna try and not watch anymore clips!Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: awesome clip...<3..love it! luv the retrospective 2...<3Avatar Imagestarfishes16 says: AHHH!!! Not only did they not explain how the pensieve works, but they jumped form scene to scene even more than in the OotP!! I have a VERYgood feeling that I'm NOT going to like the Half Blood Prince movie...Avatar Imagemollywobble says: Well it is different from the MTV clip, which is good because that was really, really choppy. This one is still choppy, but at least it gives me hope that there is more there. We'll see.Avatar ImagePickles says: This is so exciting.. I wanna see the rest!Avatar Imagebengtson_98 says: !!! Excited!!! I Absoultley Loved the Retrospective Clip!! They did awesome ... gave me goosebumps! Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: oh think iv seen this already..Avatar ImageLooniee_Luna says: It weont work for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! D:Avatar ImageDolemite says: I think the mood in the book is totally different from what they portrayed, but I can see why they did what they did.Avatar Imagegreenfire says: I got chills. That boy is such a good actor. I have a feeling that this movie is going to be very epic.
