Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J K Rowling

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the story of the final confrontation between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort, the leader of Death Eaters. It has taken 10 years for J K Rowling to complete the epic and the roots of the story can be easily spotted in the Star Wars, Dickens, Greek myths and to top it all, it has a big screen closure (just what you expect in huge epics). The confrontation itself is bone chilling and heart racing, though the race toward the finish line has its own fair share of bumps.  At the same time it must be said, the way the characters of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have concluded their journey has a convincing inevitability towards it.

The Series Is Getting Darker Than Ever

 

With every part of the series, the Harry Potter series has become darker than ever, but the author J K Rowling still creates the sarcasm of Ron and philosophical gravity of Harry Potter effortlessly. Overall, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be remembered for the initiation of Harry Potter into the complexity and sadness of the adult world.

The Burden of Leadership

]]>

 

Right from the days when his education started at Hogwarts, Harry has shouldered the burden of being a leader, coping with all the duties beautifully, though he still nurtures a wish to be an ordinary teenager. The parents of Harry Potter are already dead, apart from his godfather Sirius and Professor Dumbledore. About half a dozen more important characters die, and the losses for Harry are increasing with unfailing regularity. Other important people in Harry’s life are either wounded or are being tortured. Hogwarts and the Ministry of Magic have been infiltrated by the followers of Voldemort, and everyone in the population is now forced to take sides.

Overwhelmed and Disillusioned

 

J K Rowling makes it only natural that Harry feels overwhelmed and disillusioned at times. Controlling his temper is a struggle for him, as he sets about the search for Horcruxes, magical objects in which parts of the soul of Voldemort are stashed. He enters a dark wood, where he has to fight the Death Eaters as well as his own despair and prejudices.

The Psychic Connection Grows Stronger

 

The psychic connection that Harry has with Voldemort has also grown stronger with time; as a result he keeps getting clues about the actions of Voldemort and also gets lured towards the dark side. The turning point of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, however, is the decision by Harry whether to continue on the mission assigned to him by Dumbledore or should he go after Hallows, which will make him the master of death. Whatever decision he takes, the final showdown is inevitable. He will also have to come to terms with his own weaknesses and others’, and the equation between free will and fate.

Final 'Harry Potter' Smashes Single-Day Record with $92.1M Haul

(Updated, Sat. 9:56 a.m. PT)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” smashed the record for the largest single-day gross with a $92.1 million haul on Friday, according to studio estimates. 

The previous record-holder, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” grossed $72.7 million. 

Barring a continent-wide carmageddon, the final film in the mega-grossing franchise will bank north of $190 million this weekend and set a new high-water mark for domestic debuts.

That will easily unseat “The Dark Knight” and its $158.4 million debut as the biggest stateside bow in box office history. For Warner Bros., the studio behind both tentpole phenomenons, it means the record stays in-house and validates the decision to split Potter’s send-off into two parts. Halving author J.K. Rowling’s last book will likely add $1 billion to the franchise’s worldwide take when “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” wraps up its run. 

Potter’s impressive bounty was spread out across 4,375 theaters, many of them offering 3D shows at a premium. Its single-day tally includes $43.5 million netted from midnight showings.

The bespectacled wizard also cast a spell at the international box office. “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” grossed an estimated $75 million in 59 countries including Russia, France and Australia through Friday. Its international total now stands at $157.5 million, up 70 percent from where “Deathly Hallows: Part 1” was in the same period.

With Potter gobbling up the lion’s share of the attention, there isn’t much magic left for the other films in the marketplace. 

The weekend’s other wide release, “Winnie the Pooh,” debuted to $2.9 million domestically in 2,405 theaters. The Disney animated film should hit its pre-releases tracking to bank $8 million over the three-day period. 

In limited release, Fox Searchlight’s “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” grossed $39,000 in 24 theaters. 

Holdovers “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Horrible Bosses” grossed $6.3 million and $5.5 million respectively. The angry robot sequel should add $20 million to its haul, while the dark comedy will rack up another $17 million.

Earlier:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” made short work of the record for midnight screenings on Friday, conjuring up a  staggering $43.5 million and selling out theaters across the country.

To get a sense of just how massive “Deathly Hallows: Part 2″‘s’ haul was, the now deposed midnight record holder “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” set the benchmark at $30 million back in 2009.

The final film in the mega-grossing franchise waved its late-night spell in 3,800 midnight runs, with many theaters offering 3 a.m. shows to meet pent-up demand from fans looking to wave the bespectacled boy wizard off into the sunset. 

In addition, the film broke the midnight opening record for IMAX theatres, with a $2 million gross on 274 screens.

Tales for Muggles (the Tales of Beedle the Bard)

The five different stories with the attached Professor Dumbledore’s notes gives you the general ideas of the children’s tales in the magical world. Instead of jokes and laughs from usual characters like Harry, Hermione, Ron and the Weasley twins, the stories are principle-oriented to explain the most important messages from JKR — like anti racial discrimination and be honest towards Death.

Still, the story I like the most is The Tales of The Three Brothers, which is already released in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. However, I can not resist to laugh at the stupid King in Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump who thinks that he himself should be the only one to use magic, when he cannot even identify the difference between tricks and real magics?

In The Wizard and the Hopping Pot, JKR demonstrated how a father forced his son to be good to other races his own death.  It seems hard enough for one to be good to others, not to mention the huge gap (as if there shouldn’t be) between races. Still, human beings are learning to fill the gap, and with tremendous effort we have put in these years, we are eliminating racial discrimination not only because of someone’s forcing us, but by our truly heart. To love and to care, is always the message that JKR brings us.

In The Fountain of Fair Fortune, JKR shows how everyone should face their difficulties themselves, and everything could be solved even without magic. This story is the most interesting and lovely for children among the series since the 4 characters are so modest and kind who will even pass the opportunity to be lucky to others once they are not in need.

The Warlocks’s Hairy Heart is, on the other hand, the most terrible one. In order to provide an example that how one would become without proper love, JKR wrote this story with a hairy heart and terrible ending to act as a warning for kids (which remind me of the magnificent and impressive drawing of the baobabs in “Le Petit Price”)

Although the stories are written for children, it is always good for us to learn from the very beginning, and isn’t it interesting enough to read the most outstanding wizard’s notes and enjoy his good sense of humor?

The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh

I know who R.A.B is! I have even got evidence where to back it up! What do you think?

Question by -:-vInTaGe PaSsIon-:-: I know who R.A.B is! I have even got evidence where to back it up! What do you think?
I know everyone thinks it’s regulus black, but that because his name is the closest to the innitials R.A.B
Here is my proof that Regulus Black is R.A.B:
~Regulus’ Black’s middle named is Arcturus
~The note from R.A.B said “To The Dark Lord” not to “Lord Voldemort.” Only death eaters and previous death eaters call him The Dark Lord. And, wasn’t Regulus Arcturus Black a death eater?

Now, I have another theory: What if Regulus Black was ordered by Voldemort to kill Harry, but chickened out? It says, “He panicked at what he was being asked to do and backed out.” When Harry looked on the Black Family Tapestry, it showed the Regulus Black had died about 15 years ago, and Harry was 15 when he saw this! So Voldemort ordered Regulus to kill Harry, but he chickened out, so he hid for about a year, untill one of the death eaters found him and killed him.

Any other ideas?
Please share them!
Best speculation gets 10 points!
Good LUCK!
Oh, the first answer reminded me to add:
The locket the none of Harry’s freinds could open while cleaning the Grimmauld place is probably the last Horcrux.
But the problem is, Harry (actually nobody) can get inside the Grimmauld place anymore because they arent a Black decendent!
Therefore, I think Sirius actually did not die, because he fell through that odd veiled curtain, remember?
And Sirius will come back, and harry will get the horcrux, and he will destroy it.
Oh, the curtain veil like thingy on the sides of the 7th harry potter book is either the black family tapestry or the curtained veil sirius fell through.

Best answer:

Answer by darthlophus2004
Wow, great theory. One I had not thought of either.

I have thought about Regulus since 6 came out. My proof I have is the locket that harry found while cleaning out Number 12 Grimmauld place. Once I read six I had to go back and find that spot to re-read it. But Regulus is the best guess with the names we have been presented so far.
