The book doesn't have that line exactly. The first relevant line is in Chapter 33: “You stand, Harry Potter, upon the remains of my late father,” [Voldemort] hissed softly. “A Muggle and a fool . . . very like your dear mother. But they both had their uses, did they not? Your mother died to defend you as a child... and I killed my father, and see how ...

Muggle-born is the term given to a witch or wizard who is born to two non-magical parents. -harrypotter.wikia.com And his mother was Muggle-born but calling her Muggle implies that he thinks Muggle-born are no better than Muggles. Even when he is also half blood. I think lots of pure bloods think in similar way.

Voldemort didn't know that it held no useful information to defeat Harry. What he did know was that he had been defeated by a baby, who was the likely subject of the prophecy (Neville Longbottom being the other potential subject). He wanted the prophecy so that he could know fully what it said, in case it held any information that would have helped him. ...

The movie is roughly based on the book of the same name, which is a fictional textbook that's used by Hogwarts. The movie is essentially the story of the guy who wrote the textbook, and is not directly related to the main Harry Potter story. Rowling has specifically said that the movie (which is supposed to be a trilogy) is neither a prequel nor a sequel to ...

Basically when Voldemort used the Avada Kadavara curse to kill Harry, he only killed the part of himself(the horcrux he created the night he tried to kill Harry the first time), so it left Harry's spirit in tact, while killing only the part of Voldemort. Here's a bit more explanation: According to Harry Potter Wikia: In Harry Potter & The Goblet of ...

Throughout the book, we see that phoenixes have various abilities. One of these appears to be the ability to Apparate (or something very similar). We see this when the ministry attempts to arrest Dumbledore. We also know that Fawkes was "called" by the devotion that Harry showed to Dumbledore. So we can deduce that, rather than him flying from Dumbledore's ...

Tom Riddle was draining her life force (for lack of better term) so while Ginny was getting weaker, he was getting stronger. He needed her in his plan so Basilisk shouldn't kill her on his orders. He also didn't kill her with its gaze, because Ginny had her eyes closed (being in coma and all).

I have watched every movie today on free form and they all have extended scenes in them. I have the movies without extended scenes too. So I have seen both so Im not sure why they are saying they dont exist.

But that still doesnt say why he needed to kill Harry a baby. I think there was a rumor that Harry was the savior born to rid the magical world of evil i.e. Voldemort. I think the prophecy was Harry would be strong enough to get rid of him but to me if his parents were just regular wizards why was Harry so special? I think that it was just a rumor that he ...

Its a matter of how much magic/time is poured into them. The portraits are enchanted, and some are further taught to act that way. From JK Rowling herself, via Pottermore: When a magical portrait is taken, the witch or wizard artist will naturally use enchantments to ensure that the painting will be able to move in the usual way. The portrait will be ...
