  1. This is a long post to come to the eventual question of Do You Have a favourite Harry Potter track? So feel free to skip over my essay if you'd like. In recent years I've come to really appreciate how non-diegetic sound (usually a score or track played over the action, but not part of the action) can shape a film. I think a good score can make a film, whilst a bad score can break it. I'll only be talking about the score on the original films, as I've listened to these a lot more than the Fantastic Beast films, or Cursed Child play (but I can do a post on those if it's interesting enough). For the most part I'll try to refer to the With Harry Potter, I think for the most part, the scores composed by John Williams (1-3), Patrick Doyle (4) the few tracks from James Buckle, Steve Claydon and Jarvis Cocker in GoF, Nicholas Hooper (5-6) and Alexandre Desplat (7-8) are overwhelmingly positive with their placement in the films. They don't overwhelm you, nor do they feel forced. Each piece has been carefully composed and constructed to fit the scene, the plot, and build the atmosphere. I don't know much about music composition, but finding myself coming back to film scores time and time again, I got thinking... In college, the OOTP soundtrack was my favourite, and I'd listen to that most out of the films. I thought the Fireworks track was particularly effective for the scene, which Hooper later built on for Weasley Stomp in HBP. However, that was never my favourite track on them. It was always Umbridge Spoils a Beautiful Morning, for being so effective I could visualise the scene. It didn't matter where I was, I could always see the sequence playing. Now, almost five years on, I've realised that I have favourites for a completely different reason. I still love Fireworks and Weasley Stomp, part due to the significance they have in my Film Studies Journey. However, my favourite album is the Philosopher's Stone. There are several motifs (repeated moments) that make John Williams tracks so identifiable, and each track feels like it's made for just listening to, as well as accompanying whatever is on screen. Mr Longbottom Flies is so iconic (I have a story attached to this track, so let me know if you want to hear it), Harry's Wondrous Wold, Prologue and Hedwig's theme are such a staple across all the films. However, it's Diagon Alley and the Gringotts Vault that makes me smile, and I think it's just the transition from Diagon Alley to Gringott's that I really love and appreciate, and sets the tone for the rest of the film - fantastical, but slightly darker underneath the wondrous first impression of magic. To conclude this essay, I'll leave you with my three favourite tracks (although if you've read this, you can probably guess them.) Diagon Alley and the Gringotts Vault - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - John Williams. Weasley Stomp - Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - Nicholas Hooper. Umbridge Spoils a Beautiful Morning - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Nicholas Hooper. Do you have any favourite tracks from the films? Or overall album? I'd love to see which ones you enjoy the most!
  2. Small Moments in the Films You've Noticed TL;DR: Are there any small moments you've noticed rewatching the films? A lot of film teachers I've had, and other film students I've spoken to, whenever you rewatch a film you always notice something different. I had a film lecturer mention to their first year class at uni about a story I told her. I was rewatching Pan's Labyrinth for my coursework, and I noticed little motifs of the faun and the more adult themes that I hadn't noticed before. One of the students in her class said, 'I've already watched La La Land, so why do I have to watch it again?' It's just a moment that stuck with me, and even with the Harry Potter films, I've noticed small moments that I may have missed on first, or earlier viewing. Let me take you back to my first year at college. We had to analyse a sequence from a film, and I chose The OWL scene from Order of the Phoenix. I repeatedly watched this scene, and even now I would definitely go back and rewrite the essay (which on a slight tangent, I found yesterday). But what I noticed is the dialogue between the twins, which is almost drowned out by the fireworks and the Fireworks score playing over it. One of the twins (I think it's Fred) says, before releasing the dragon, Fred: Ready when you are. It took me a good seven or eight listens to hear it, and it's so subtle but works so well with the scene. Like it's all pre-planned except the grand finale. But I love how it's just inserted, like amidst all the chaos, they are still the ones to pull it all off. What are some moments you've seen from the films that maybe you didn't on your first few watches? I'd love to know. I'll share another one mine on this thread soon.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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........
  6. All 8 Harry Potter Films Coming To NETFLIX 15th January 2019 Calling all witches and wizards, on January 15th it's time to go back to Hogwarts All eight films will appear on the platform on 15th January, for all of its subscribers in Australia & NewZealand. The news was announced via Twitter with the simple message: “ Calling all witches and wizards, on January 15th it's time to go back to Hogwarts ". Unfortunately the series will only be shown on Netflix Australia & Netflix NewZealand ONLY - Sorry USA, Canada and sorry to the rest of us in the UK too! It’s not the first time Harry Potter has been rumored for release on Netflix. The last big wave came in October when Netflix in France announced it would be streaming the franchise in November 2018. Many news outlets didn’t look very hard into the detail here and decided that everyone is getting the franchise. The main reason as to why the Harry Potter series isn’t coming to Netflix is simply down to licensing rights. In the US, UK and Canada the rights are most likely either unobtainable or far too expensive for Netflix to purchase.
