Did anyone else feel that drinking the Horcrux was kinda lame?

The liguid was not the Horcrux. It was a cursed liquid to protect the Horcrux. Drinking it was the only way to get it out of the bowl it was in.

"WHO IS R.E.B. ????"

No clue as to what you're talking about.

So, the drinking was just a contrivance to make Dumbledor a bit more heroic?

Did you read the book? The movie doesn't have time to explain these things as well.

No, I haven't. In fact, I just started listening to the 1st on CD.

Did anyone here know that the original Harry Potter wasn't "The Sorcerer's Stone" but rather "The Philosopher's Stone"?

Yes, I knew the original title was The Philopher's Stone, but I'm from Europe, so I bought the UK edition.
I assume you have listened to the whole book, so you know by now what it is. And it is not something J.K. Rowling invented, but something she borrowed from traditional alchemy, as is Nicholas Flamel. (Although the reality of it is a very different matter, of course ;o) )

If you are interested in the background of the myths, and legends that J.K. Rowling borrowed and adjusted, and what she invented herself,
The Magical Worlds of Harry Potter (revised edition) is a fun book.

Holy hippogriff, Batman! Of course I am definitely interested. I'll be requesting that one from my library. Thanks! (I've always wanted to know where that stuff came from.)

BTW, I am to their 6th year and I have to say that Joanne Rowling has got to be my favorite author; she's got one heck of an imagination! How she integrates already known myths into her own is genious.

Hi Lance,
Yeah, I totally agree, she is great! And I'm still discovering things, and sometimes think "Wow, did she put this in deliberately?" and then "Of course, she must have!"

Now I completely understand why Voldemort had that potion, can't believe I didn't get it before. He's evil, and that's one heck of a horrible way to get to one of his Horcruxes. Although you'd think that he'd have made it harder with the others, too.

Speaking of horcruxes... SPOILERS...

In the scene where Tom Riddle is asking Professor Slughorn about these elusive Horcruxes, did anyone notice the ring on Tom's finger? In the book it is said that the family that Voldemort's mother came from was kin to the three brothers, and that when Tom was just learning about magic at Hogwarts, he made a visit to the home of his mother's and Dumbledor felt that that was when he made his 1st horcrux. Would it stand to reason then that that ring was a horcrux, and thus Voldemort's FIRST horcrux? PLUS it held the resurrection stone, did it not?
