Is there such a thing on my old Wiko? :hmm:

The person after me wouldn't like to be sorted as Slytherin so they asked the Sorting Hat to be put in Ravenclaw instead, thinking their wits beyond measure is their greatest treasure.

No, I think I would be more suited for Slytherin.

The person after me has watched all the Harry Potter films but never read the books.

On the contrary. I have read most of the books, but I think I only watched the first two movies.

Never. I am really scared of accidents.

The person after me thinks that nowadays life is more hard for us than it was for our fathers.

That's an interesting question, but I don't have an answer.
Sometimes I believe modern technology makes our lives easier and sometimes I think it makes it harder. However, each period of time has its own unique way of life, its own special needs, its own joys and sorrows.

The person after me silent and/or retro movies.

Did you forget a "likes" or something like that? :) In that case, I'm sorry to say I don't like silent films too much, but there's only a small part of films I love :)

The person after me likes biopics.

"More hard" is not technically incorrect, but there's a very strong preference for the synthetic comparative with monosyllabic adjectives and adverbs.

A "part" is always a piece of something. The way you have phrased it, it sounds like there's some minor element common to all films that you like (perhaps the credits). What you mean, though, is that, of all the films that exist, you only love a few. A more natural way to say this is "I only love a small number of films" or "there aren't many films I love".

Not a lot, but I did memorise some when I was in high school. If I tried to recite them now, I think I'd make lots of mistakes.

The person after me knows the full lyrics to hundreds of songs.

Not at all - my hair is so dry already that any other treatment is a risk.

The person after me's helping someone involved into a painful divorce.

More idiomatic: "...that many", "...immediate future".

Well...a friend of mine was planning to get divorced, and I have helped her in several ways before, but she got divorced and seems happy now.

Despite the general lack of activity on UniLang lately, the person after me is surprised that no one has posted in this thread in almost two months!

I'm surprised it's only two months.

The person after me is letting the cell phone autocomplete write all their posts.

My phone is very stupid, so I guess it would slow down even more the poor thread...

The person after me thinks the French Government is lying about the effect of the explosion of the plant in Rouen and that it's actually another Chernobyl that will create a toxic cloud moving towards the British Isles.
