  1. Hey everyone! With J.K.Rowling every so often adding to the Harry Potter canon, I wanted to know if there were any parts of the canon you wish would be expanded upon. Even the reveal about how the plumbing system came to be asks more questions than it answers - for example, how did the plumbers not question how big the pipes are? Where does the waste go? Why does it seem like the bathrooms are in the most random of places? One of the questions I want answered is: What actually constitutes under age magic and how it's reported? The book canon implies one thing, but the films seem to make it completely different - Just look at how many times Hermione fixes Harry's glasses outside of school time. Does environment have something to do with it? What about accidental magic? Is it intentional magic that makes it under age? I have so many questions about it. What are some of your unanswered canon questions that you wish would be answered? I'd love to get a discussion going about them.
  2. The Harry Potter directors took the movies in different directions over the years capturing the magic of the books. What film in the series do you believe was able to really capture the heart of the books, despite a restrictive run time? Would you've sat through a 3+ hour film?
  3. Morning all, I’ve recently picked up the Poldark series while watching the tv show. However, since series 5 doesn’t actually follow the books I thought I’d make a start on the rest. I believe there’re around 12 books? I maybe wrong. Similar to the Harry Potter books in a sense that it’s been adapted to the screen, the books go into so much more detail about other characters which makes a lot more sense than the TV show. Plot: Into the 1780s and 1790s, Capt. Ross Vennor Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to his home Nampara in Cornwallafter three years in the army. Upon his return home, he discovers his father Joshua has died, his estate is in ruins and in considerable debt, and his childhood sweetheart Elizabeth is engaged to his cousin Francis. In town, Ross encounters a young woman named Demelza Carne, dressed in one of her brother's clothes. After learning that her father repeatedly abuses her, Poldark offers her lodging and work as a kitchen maid. He then strives to help his father's tenants and the people of the village while attempting to run the copper mines he inherited, sought after by his rival, the greedy and arrogant George Warleggan.

  5. Renai Leeben Villanueva

    Me

    Hello, I'm Renai Leeben Villanueva and I'm 18 years old. I am a member of Iglesia ni Cristo. When I was young, I've been seeing a lot of Harry Potter films but I didn't care much about it. But when my classmate in grade 5 lend me a Harry Potter book, that's the time I begin to like it. After I finished the book, a Potterhead friend of mine tell me stories about it and I did everything to finish reading all the books and and I also have watched the movies but to my dissmay, a lot was gone and changed. I join a lot of groups about HP and until now, I still love 'em. HP gives me inspiration and my imagination become wider.
  6. Is there anything in the Harry Potter films that you like more than in the books? As a Muggle, is there any parts or particular scenes in the movies that you like more than in the books? I personally watched the films before reading the books, but I've loved finding out more in depth explanations. I might speak for a few people here, but as the Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite in the series I loved reading about the Marauder's Map. I'm not very good at imaginging what things look like within my head so to be able to see what it looks like in the films was a piece of art. So, what's your favourite part/s........

  8. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone vs Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone So why did the name change? It dates back to when the rights were sold for the first book: Scholastic Corporation bought the U.S. publishing rights for what was then known as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, forking out a comparably high $105,000 for the privilege. It was changed by the American publisher, Scholastic, because it thought American children wouldn't want to read a book with "philosopher" in the title. Eventually, the author suggested Sorcerer's Stone, and that's how the book is known in the U.S. market where Scholastic had the rights. Other quotes from around the world; "The publisher thought "Sorcerer" would better convey the magical tone of the series. So uninformed children would know it's about a wizard, not a philosopher." " Because apparently they thought Americans wouldn't know what a philosopher's stone is..." Rowling later admitted in a web chat for BBC Red Nose Day in 2001 that she regretted the decision. When asked if it bothered her that the name of the book had been changed in the U.S., she wrote that "they changed the first title, but with my consent. To be honest, I wish I hadn't agreed now, but it was my first book, and I was so grateful that anyone was publishing me I wanted to keep them happy ..." What name do you prefer?
