Harry Potter . . . A Look back

  1. People.com had a pop quiz on the spells of Harry Potter (I got all of the questions right!) with some really cool pictures!

    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

    Hermione warns a pajama-clad Neville that she's "really, really sorry about this" – then points her wand and says "Petrificus totalus!" leaving her dorm-mate stiff as a board and mute, and leaving Ron in awe. "You're a little scary sometimes, you know that?" Ron says. "Brilliant ... but scary."
     
  2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    When Harry conjures a Patronus – a positive force that shields him from the life-sucking dementors first in Prisoner of Azkaban – he thinks of his happiest memories (including leaving his brutish aunt and uncle on Privet Drive) and emits the image of a stag from his wand.
     
  3. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    As Professor Moody demonstrates on a spider in his Defense Against the Dark Arts class in Goblet of Fire, the Cruciatus Curse causes extreme pain that can drive a victim to insanity while the Imperius Curse allows the caster to control a victim's actions (or a spider's dancing legs!).

    "Accio" summons an object, and for Harry, using the charm helps him win the first task of the Tri-Wizard Tournament in Goblet of Fire. After calling for his broom, Harry was able to swoop in and take a golden egg from a fire-breathing Horntail dragon's nest.

    Avada kedavra is the worst of the three Unforgivable Curses, and is the one that villain Lord Voldemort used on Harry as a baby, causing his lightning-bolt scar. Harry is still the only wizard who has been known to survive the curse's deadly flash of green light emitted from the caster's wand.

    Thanks for reminding us !
     
  5. Daniel Radcliffe was on Conan O'Brian two nights ago, and Conan brought up the fact that Daniel started all of this when he was eleven.

    A picture of eleven year old Daniel comes up on the screen and the entire audience (and me) goes, "Awwww!"

    Daniel's response, "That was unnecessary!"

    In that interview he also said he caught the first movie on a movie channel, and for a minute there, he thought there was something wrong with the sound because his voice was so high.
