Now for my review.
I know you’ve all been busting at the seems for it.
(If you’ve been living in a Hogwarts History book
and don’t know who is going to die in the movie,
you may want to read this
after your viewing)
First of all,
when Fred dies,
a piece of this funny girl died too.
Oh, you didn’t know that Fred died.
You have no right to watch the movies
if you haven’t read the book.
A part of this girl died
when Fred died in the book,
and when he died in the movie,
I just had a short revisit
to the moment I read about
this terrible misfortune
and sat up and cried all night.
Then when they show Remus and Tonks dead,
all I could think to myself was
shouldn’t Tonks hair be a brighter color
so that all the fools that didn’t read the books
would know that was her?
Then when Harry died,
I was like
“Is he really dead?”
No I wasn’t
because I read the book
I knew he wasn’t really dead,
but I still cried.
And then when Harry finally
defeated that horrible Voldermort
why was I the only one in the theatre
My husband even shooshed me.
Ding Dong the dude is dead.
I didn’t cry when Voldemort died.
In the book or the movie.
The only regret I had
was that the poor monster
never knew love.
But, isn’t that what JK Rowling
was trying to tell us all along?
19 years later:
life went on,
in a profound way:
a fatherly chat
with his nervous son,
Albus Severus Potter.
(The name was a trend on twitter
all night long)
“Son, the sorting hat,
takes your vote into account.”
Harry should know all about that.
At this point,
I had an epiphany:
love is life.
life is love.
Why not love life?
Even if it’s just the ordinary?
Or even if it’s magical
it’s still worthy of our deep devotion,
I think they made Ginny a little pudgier
which made me happy
because she’s a mom
and she’s still beautiful
with a few extra pounds.
And I am sorry to the actress who played Ginny
if they didn’t really make you
but I just thought that they did.
Ron was chubbier too.
It’s in the Weasley genes.
the Potter and Granger genes
are skinny to the end.
I dressed up like Bellatrix
to show outwardly
the love I have inwardly
for the magic we call Potter.
And people may have disagreed
with my choice of the dark side,
but without the dark side,
there would have been
no story in the first place.
Favorite parts of the movie:
(Here are the spoilers
in no particular order)
Getting out of Gringots on the dragon.
Ron and Hermione kiss. (finally)
Ginny saying “I know” to Harry.
Professor McGonagall saying
“I always wanted to use that spell.”
Dumbledore talking about
not pitying the dead.
Harry viewing Snape’s memories
and finally understanding Snape’s actions.
“You have your mother’s eyes.”
Harry when he comes back to life
and jumps out of Hagrid’s arms.
Everything about Neville.
From when he brings Harry into the castle,
to slaying Nagini,
and sitting by Luna awkwardly at the end.
Mrs. Weasley hollaring at Bellatrix and defeating her.
When Hermione calls Ron brilliant
and kind of shakes her head in surprise.
Professor McGonagall giving
the boys permission to blow up the bridge
and them being uncertain about whether or not
she is serious.
Harry conversing with his momma.
And, just thinking about all this stuff
is making me cry again.
All I can do is
Why did she have to kill Fred?
What was your favorite part of the movie
or the book?
And please spare me your
whining about what was different
between the two
because I really don’t pay that much attention.
