Harry Potter Films To Receive Special AFI Award

Posted by Lilysowl On December - 12 - 2011

Harry PotterThe complete Harry Potter film series has been chosen by the American Film Institute to receive a special award in the institute’s annual recognition of excellence in film for the year 2011.  This recognition honors both the cast and crew for all eight films!

According to their website, the American Film Institute is “America’s promise to preserve the history of the motion picture, to honor the artists and their work and to educate the next generation of storytellers…”  Also, it is the largest non-profit exhibitor in the United States which has honored many legendary films, actors and actresses as well as television movies and programs for the past 40 years. 

The Special AFI Award is presented to visual screen work that has made outstanding achievements in the moving image which do not fit AFI’s criteria for the other honorees of the year.

:) But we always knew the Harry Potter films were in a category of their own, didn’t we?

Congratulations to the cast and crew of the Harry Potter films for receiving one of the highest honors in the film industry!

Potter Films In Top 50 Kids’ Movies For Adults

Posted by Lilysowl On February - 13 - 2010

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceThe Times created a list of 50 kids’ movies that can be enjoyed by adults as well as  children.  According to the article, the choices caused quite a debate among The Times staff before the Harry Potter films were placed in the #23 spot:

23 Harry Potter (2001-present) JK Rowling’s books were famously devoured by both kids and adults, and the film continued the trend, especially later installments, when the Children of Men director Alfonso Cuaron and State of Play ‘s David Yates injected teen angst and political intrigue.

The Incredibles produced by Pixar was #1.

Dobby: Downtrodden Yet Inspiring

Posted by Lilysowl On January - 29 - 2010

Dobby the House ElfEmpireOnline posted a photo gallery of the “Most Downtrodden(Yet Inspiring) Characters In Movie History”.  Dobby, a character created by J.K. Rowling who wrote the Harry Potter series, was number 8.  The house elf was introduced to moviegoers in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:

Dobby
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)

Why he’s so miserable: It may have been largely excised from the filmed versions, but in the Harry Potter universe house elves like Dobby are essentially slaves, in that they work without pay and without possibility of release except by their master’s say-so. That may be alright if you work somewhere fairly cuddly, like the Hogwarts kitchens (where the elves are largely bemused by Hermione and her Society for the Promotion of Elvish Welfare), but if you work for the Malfoys you can count on regular beatings, semi-starvation, verbal abuse and having to cater to dark wizards.

Why he’s inspiring: Dobby’s best efforts quite often bring disaster on their intended beneficiary (usually Harry Potter), but you can’t fault him for doing everything he can to protect The Boy Who Lived from a clear and present danger – and he does it at considerable risk to himself. Dobby continues to play a heroic role throughout the series, always putting the welfare of others before his own, and plays a role out of all proportion to his size.

Other characters in the photo gallery include Napoleon Dynamite and Wall-E.

Video: Rupert & Emma Discuss Reading Potter Books

Posted by Dijares On December - 29 - 2009

Emma Watson and Rupert GrintWarner Bros released a video that I spoke of during my review of the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Ultimate Edition. The video shows Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) on the set of Deathly Hallows discussing reading the books. Rupert admits that he real the last book a bit late, and Emma correct him by saying he was the last person in the world to read it.

Also, the email that included this video stated that their Harry Potter Twitter site will start to give away Half-Blood Prince posters soon, so make sure to follow them on Twitter!
