Last week, I watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt 2 (which I’ve also heard referred to as ‘arry Potter 7.5). The story made no sense to me, and I couldn’t understand anything anyone was saying because of the British accents.
At first, I assumed that the problem was that I hadn’t seen the other movies, but upon talking to my Harrytard friends (is that offensive? I should’ve called them Potterheads), I realized that I have in fact seen all of the movies, and I already knew plenty of the back story. The plot just didn’t make any sense.
But I digress! I actually do like Harry Potter. I am a weight lifting, combat sporting, motorcycle riding, bacon eating guy, and I think Harry Potter is an okay series of movies for the following reasons:
- Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, and sometimes, Luna Lovegood.
Add to cart!
- Alan Rickman as Severus Snape.
Have you ever seen the Family Guy clip about Alan Rickman’s answering machine? Brilliant!
- Wizards eat like pigs
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and think about the mountains of ice cream, giant bowls of jello, and copious pies and cakes from Half-blood Prince.
So ya, that’s about it. I feel like I could probably post a series of articles about specific problems I have with Harry Potter storylines, but I’ve got a long list of higher priority things I wanted to gripe about like Lord of the Rings.
