Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

It opened in the Philippines today, November 13. Of course, like any good little HP fan I went to see it because I did NOT want to deal with the weekend crowd.

BEWARE OF SPOILER DISCUSSION. MOVIE MAY BE SPOILED.


Taken from my journal post here:
As a T/G shipper, I was very anxious to see the movie for my T/G fix. In the Chamber of Secrets scene, we actually got shown in errr... flashback-y moments Ginny's actions under Tom's thrall. Heh. IMHO, both Tom and Ginny were great despite the fact that their screentime couldn't have added up to more than 20 minutes. Heh. Tom's background was never fully explained, that he lived in an orphanage, that his Muggle father (though he did mention his father in the part where he reveals he is Voldemort) abandoned his mother etc. The whole bit where he quotes Ginny's confidences to Harry was not shown which ticked me off. I wanted to milk as much T/G as I could get out of the movie and failed. Tom was... heh, at certain times HOT. Really, it's the eyes. Ginny's role was lessened. Her crush was briefly mentioned, but the Valentine scenes, scenes that MIGHT have mentioned how upset she was over the attacks (Rowling's idea of foreshadowing), and her attempted confession to Harry was cut out. Still she was PRETTY. And sometimes the way she looked... dark man, dark.


Any other thoughts on the movie?
