I'm sure we all enjoyed last night's post of anger and disappointment so much that we're really excited to do it all over again tonight! Yay? I have heard that HP2 (as we shall call it) isn't much better than HP1, so I'm definitely really looking forward to it. Yes.
21:05- God, I think this ones longer than the last one, even. Never listen to my housemates when they say 'you can just watch one and two back to back'. Only if I've got FIVE HOURS to spare, guys.
21:08- I've just realised that 4 Privet Drive is literally nothing like I imagined. I know, why would it be? But still. Disappointing.
21:10- Dobby's about to get punched. By me. FUCKING DOBBY.
21:13- I hate that Dobby is trying to stop Harry from getting all killed, but then he does something that makes Uncle Vernon likely to murder him. Also I just generally hate Dobby, have I mentioned that?
21:16- Aghhh, The Burrow is excellent! Also, Molly. Yes.
21:19- I'm well impressed with whoever taught the owls to fly with letters in their mouths. Veeeery impressed. Less so with whoever taught the kids to act.
21:22- Knockturn Alley is waaaaay more sinister than in the books. Also a little bit Dickensian London-y. I like it.
21:25- Draco seems very very angry for no real reason! WHERE IS THE DIRECTOR?!
21:27- Oh really? Did Harry just notice Lucius putting the diary in Ginny's cauldron? NOPE.
21:30- Harry could clearly also almost die in the flying car incident (which actually looks pretty cool) . I feel like Dobby reaaaally isn't thinking things through.
21:34- SNAAAAAPE! He's very good at angry, isn't he? *flaps*
21:36- Mandrakes cure those who have been Petrified? It's possible that could be important... Hehehehe
21:39- Ron's face at the Howler! Ridiculous!
21:41- Lockhart's golden suit is wooooonderful. His teaching, not so much. Obviously.
21:44- Nice of Fred and George to show concern for their slug vomming brother! Also, FUCKING MALFOY.
21:45- Aw, we just had a touching anti-discrimination moment! Boooo people who say mudblood.
21:47- Don't worry Harry, no one is going to die... It's only the second film, things haven't gotten that dark yet.
21:50- Dumbledore and McGonagall giving Lockhart the side-eye. Oh hell yes.
21:54- Does McGonagall give such a massive talk about the Chamber in the book? I don't remember that at all, really.
21:57- Ah, Quidditch again. What did I ever do to deserve this?
22:01- Oh nooooo, I forgot about Lockhart fixing Harry's arm. That is preeeetty gross on film. Oh, Lockhart.
22:03- DOBBY'S BLUDGER COULD PROBABLY HAVE KILLED HARRY POTTER. WHY IS DOBBY SO STUPID? And also pathetic. So so pathetic.
22:06- Hogwarts isn't safe! We definitely shouldn't send the kids home! It's really dangerous but whatevs!
22:09- Snape couldn't look more thrilled at being Lockhart's assistant. Oh, Snape.
22:12- I feel like the snake thing could have been done better... Like from two different sides or something? But hey, Harry's a Parselmouth, who knew?!
22:17- Dumbledore's office! Actually I quite like it- especially the assortment of random shit everywhere. (How does Harry not know what a Phoenix is?!)
22:19- DON'T LIE TO DUMBLES, YOU LITTLE SHIT!
22:22- But but but the Polyjuice potion is meant to change colour depending on who you put in it!
22:25- "Reading? I didn't know you could read." Yes. Humour.
22:29- Oh Myrtle. You add nothing to anyone's life, man.
22:31- Does Harry PHYSICALLY have to go into the diary? Wouldn't he be missed? (Ps don't trust anything that thinks when you can't see its brain)
22:35- "HAGRIIIIIIID!" Oh. Wow. And not in a good way.
22:38- The Petrified students look really really creepy. Like horrifying mannequins. HORRIFYING, I tell you.
22:41- Fudge's face is disappointing. In that he doesn't look like that in my brain at all. Damn, why don't they let me cast these things?
22:46- I am the resident spider catcher in my house, but there might be a few too many spiders for me. Also, Aragog. I cannot.
22:49- ARE THEY ON ME? I feel like they're on me. GET THEM OFF.
22:55- MUST Snape encourage Lockhart so? Must he? Why does everyone want Lockhart to die?
22:56- Oh yeah, that's why. Cowardface.
23:00- Oooh, the Chamber opening is pretty cool. I'm down with that.
23:02- "Heart of a lion, this one." Heh.
23:04- Harry has to go on alone then, does he? Must be why this is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
23:07- Ginny! Naughty. Sort of.
23:11- Why would Harry throw the Sorting Hat down and run? That seems incredibly foolish. Like, ridiculous.
23:17- Harry assumes he's dying, and yet he still really wants to get Ginny out and and he's so BRAVE. Oh Harry.
23:21- Oh, Dobby. You've been so useless this whole film. Please go away.
23:23- The first Dumbledore was a very good Dumbledore indeed.
23:26- House Elf magic is STRONG. There must be some kind of research that can go into the suppressing of a race that's stronger than you are...
23:30- Hagrid's standing ovation. Oh hells yeah. Also that's so not how the book ends, but ok.
So. Huh. Definitely not as bad as the first one. But no Christmas? What is even the point?
