Another Rupert Grint Rave Reviews Update: OotP Era!

As you all know, ICM staff never rests – even when the news are slow, we always have some Rupert Grint goodies for you, to help us cope with the news draught. Thus, I have just added 29 new/old reviews of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (starting from Entertainment Weekly), plus three of Driving Lessons and two of Goblet of Fire.

As for Order of the Phoenix, I must have read about 300 reviews, and all critics had nothing but nice words to say about Rupert, however most of them sing the same chorus:

“Rupert Grint is tragically underused.”
“It’s a shame to see Grint’s screen time so diminished.”
“Grint is a wonderful actor but he is given almost nothing to do.”  Etc. etc.

So it is not just us Rupert fans complaining about his reduced screen time in OotP, but the professional movie critics too! However, according to the test screenings reports, Rupert is given A LOT more to do in Half-Blood Prince, so hopefully we won’t have to sing the above chorus ever again…

Anyway, enjoy the read! And many thanks to our lovely Karin for taking time and trouble to find and/or translate some of the reviews.

Rupert’s smile makes everything alright…

I’m hoping for plenty of Ron/Rupert in HBP, and unless any nefarious “tweaking” is done, it sounds from the test reports and the promos there will be lots of Ron love. I really hope it stays that way. Because I have a bad feeling there might be a long stretch of Ronless-ness (lookie, I made a word), in DH when he leaves Harry and Hermione. I love Harry and Hermione, but without Ron…*yawn.*

And I don’t mind that Ron will have a lot of comical moments in HBP, because from the looks of his love potion scenes, he will be hilarious and will steal the show.

I want to eat him for dessert

His laugh kills me. I swear, it’s the most lovely sound. I replay over and over that blooper from DL when the sound guy falls over just to hear his laugh.

I don’t know which I love more, his big hearty laugh like that, or his giggles, like the end of the DL Unscripted interview.

Aw, Rupes. You brought me a beer? Thanks, love.

Ah damn, I missed the troll again. I wanted to post my especially made icon for her.

But maybe it’s better. Like Fugitive said, Rupert’s smiles make everything better, and in my icon Rupert is being rude right back. So maybe it’s better not to provoke.

Late again, story of my life. If anyone is here and comments after me, just know that I’ve logged off. It’s beddy bye time *sighs* one day I will have actual conversations with the girls here, I will!

Looking forward to Neglo’s gift on the morn 🙂

I see we had another troll attack here…oops, I think someone is a bit jealous because a) Rupert gets all this rave reviews b) Rupert will shine in HBP 3) Rupert has another 2 great movies coming up next year!
well that’s just too bad sweetie 😀
BTW, love how you girls started fighting the troll with gorgeous pics and amazing reviews, those are our weapons against them and it worked 🙂 that and the fact that she was banned by our lovely Jo too.
^ and hey lookie, I can use a space bar too ! yay!!!
ok back to what’s important – RUPERT
Looking forward to both Neglo’s and Enock’s gift *is curious about evie’s icon*

You are amazing you k now,how you have time to search all of these out…well done and thanks:)

Anon, you need to f’ing stop now. There is no need for you to keep being a moron in here. I feel embarrassed FOR you. Just get up, walk away from the computer and if you’re lucky, you can maybe get a life while you’re at it?


I can’t wait to see what Neglo and Enock have in store for us. *excited*

November 30th, 2008 at 11:40 AM

Anon go home.

You remember that pic of Rupert carrying those two huge ice creams when the Grints were on holiday a few years ago (with Rupert wearing long sleeves on the beach)?
Anyway, on the pic above, he’s got two bottles of beer.
So, is he just a nice bloke, or does he always have everything twice?! 😉

Okay, I think I’m finished in the spoiler thread here. lol 485 pages folks at the spoiler thread in the R/E forums. I’m up to page 338 but it’s mostly about the pictures and then the trailer.

OMG you are scary and you can call me”troll”because i don’t care and i’m humble unlike you…i not jealous of someone with this scary fans without education..”

*yawns* you’re boring me…
for someone who’s that rude you sure bring education up frequently. speaking of which, I haven’t even finished high school yet and english is not my first language and I know it’s “I am not jealous”, while you wrote “I not jealous”; see how you’re embarassing yourself? oops there I go, not being very humble am I? guess what, I don’t care 😀
all we did was talk about Rupert’s talent, if you’re not jealous then why do you came here to pick fights up? maybe your life is just that boring, which is really sad BTW.
have a nice day dear, I’m not wasting my time with you.
*goes back to Rupertland, which you will never be able to be at, thankfully* *wants Neglo’s and Enock’s gifts too*

November 30th, 2008 at 11:52 AM

Well, Anon, what’s your prob? You’re on a RupertGrint site, so don’t expect us to bash him.
If you had any education at all, you’d be able to figure that out for yourself, but apparently you aren’t.

how can you know who Ivana was talking about when she said “abysmal acting” if the post she made in the forums about that is in the restricted area?? maybe you’re just assuming it is someone you like and you get offended, but there’s no way for you to know! oh and honey you wished you had the power to make me angry, you do not, if anything, you make me feel sad for you. And although I’m not obssessed with Rupert, I’m very proud to be his fan, thank you very much.

Well put wickedjo. I know we are supposed to ignore the troll but its hard not to when they are so stupid. I just want to rewrite her sentence and correct all the spelling and punctuation. I guess having a degree makes me uneducated…….that makes sense……..uh…not. Who said we are supposed to be humble about Rupert? That makes no sense. We can brag on him all we want. It is, after all, a Rupert site!!!! DUR!!

Suz I’m off to read more spoilers. Thanks for doing that.

November 30th, 2008 at 12:52 PM

OH SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!!! Go tell you’re babysitter to read you a story or something. You seriously need something to occupy that feeble mind of yours.

November 30th, 2008 at 1:05 PM

I think we all need something new to drool over – preferably new pictures, a new interview where we can hear his beautiful voice, and a new trailer where we can see his own bad self being AWESOME!!!
This is not too much to ask for, is it? 😉

Btw, the work you guys put into this site is incredible, do you ever sleep? lol

November 30th, 2008 at 1:06 PM

ZOMG — Rupert will you marry me? I <3 u SOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo muchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

November 30th, 2008 at 1:07 PM

Let’s see if Rupert’s hotness scares anon away again.
