11 feature films, 6 TV series [many of which have very dubious quality] - sorry, Potter isn't even close to the lactating blood Trek reached.

Re: JK Rowling to revisit Harry Potter-verse for new movie series

I'm one of the few people who liked books 1-4, particularly their style, much more than 5-7 (and especially didn't like
) so not really enthusiastic but it could be good.

Book came out six years ago, I think we're out of spoiler territory at this point.

And rosebud is a boys snow sled.

Fuinny anecdoate about that actually. As I understand it when Welles made Citizen Kane he picked the name rosebud for the sled becuse the film is of course modeled after William Randolph Heasrt's life and is to some degree a paradoy of his life and a snub.

Apparently Welles had inside information that Hearst named his girlfirends pussy, "rosebud," and it was a further snub.

Maybe so but it was nice of him to use spoiler code. I wish more people would be as thoughtful.

You know, I've never seen "Citizen Kane" because somebody ruined the ending for me.

The ending's not all that important.

Re: JK Rowling to revisit Harry Potter-verse for new movie series

I guess it's lame at this point, but when I saw Deathly Hallows I just assumed there'd be some sort of "one-off" movie featuring Dumbledore and Grindelwald. They cast Jamie Bower, a well-known up-and-coming actor in the UK to play the younger version of Grindelwald, yet he only appeared in D.H. as a photograph. It seemed odd they'd cast someone like Bower just for his face in a non-speaking role. But there doesn't seem to be any interest at all in filming the Dumbledore-Grindelwald backstory.

Rosebud is merely a framing device for the larger story of Kane's life as a yellow journalist (a thinly veiled Hearst clone). It's really only important insofar as it's the reason for the reporter to go around asking all these questions about the recently deceased Kane, since his last words were a mystery to all of his close friends. In the end, the reporter never even finds out why Kane's last word was Rosebud (it's only seen as a closing shot of the sled as it's burned with the rest of Kane's worthless belongings).

Strangely enough, a major plothole in Citizen Kane is that no one is in the room when Kane dies to even hear him say "rosebud"!

I hope Warner Brothers is contractually-obligated not to make any script changes without her approval.
They are indeed forbidden to make any unauthorized changes.

Not the first time, no, but do I seem to recall a certain NATO coalition going in and taking him down when he regenerated, came out of hiding, and retook control of Germany back in '58.

^ But not all the news from Potter land is cool. Some of it is brain-blastingly lame:

I never read that myself, but I thought it was pretty cool that she did that. I wouldn't mind getting stuff like that for some of the other characters.
