I just saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them the other day, and I’m really excited about having the Rowlingverse back on the big screen. Recently, director David Yates confirmed to Screen Rant that we will be seeing a younger Dumbledore in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. So, today, I want to show you who I’d like to see play a younger Dumbledore. (more…)
The following is a review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Five years after the end of the Harry Potter film series, Warner Bros. is ready to bring you another story in the wizarding world of the Rowlingverse: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Make no mistake, this film does not feature Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, or Ron Weasley. In fact, Fantastic Beasts takes place in the 1920s – a very long time before Hagrid told Harry that he was a wizard. (more…)
We’ve reached the end of this week’s event series of posts: Harry Potter Week. I’ve reviewed every single Harry Potter film, and I’m now ready to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them when it gets its theatrical release next month.
But before I do that, I want to end this Harry Potter Week with a solid series finale. Today, I’m ranking the top 10 characters from the Harry Potter series of films released between 2001 and 2011. Now, don’t worry about the three protagonists finishing one, two, and three – that’s not happening. So, without further ado, here are the top 10 characters from Harry Potter. (more…)
The following is a spoiler-filled review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two.
In 2004, The Lord of the Rings film series was recognized at the Academy Awards in a big way. The Return of the King was nominated for eleven Oscars, and it, somehow, managed to win every single award it was nominated for. That was a big deal. It was a big moment for the Oscars, the Tolkien films, and all genre films.
In 2011, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two was released. The Academy, however, chose not to recognize the Harry Potter film series in the same way. That is a shame. Because the Harry Potter film series actually ended on such a high note that it deserved a similar treatment. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two is fantastic. (more…)
The following is a spoiler-filled retro review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part One.
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part One, Harry Potter (played by Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (played by Rupert Grint), and Hermione Granger (played by Emma Watson) are unable to return to Hogwarts and, instead, go on the hunt for Horcruxes and ways to destroy them.
The following is a spoiler-filled retro review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Severus Snape (played by Alan Rickman) makes an unbreakable vow with Narcissa Malfoy (played by Helen McCrory) to protect Draco (played by Tom Felton), and fulfill his mission if Draco is unsuccessful. At Hogwarts, Harry (played by Daniel Radcliffe) finds a mysterious textbook with helpful notes that used to belong to someone known as the Half-Blood Prince. (more…)
The following is a spoiler-filled retro review of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
With the end of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Warner Bros. and Mike Newell made sure that we were ready to lose people. Cedric Diggory’s death was very sad, but it didn’t come close to being as devastating as what happened in David Yates’ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. (more…)
