Spain vs. Canada – GO!

The birth of the Road Music Video~ or maybe it’s just the Warner re-purpose.

I wanted to make a personal post for this year’s LGBT Blogathon, so I tried to think about the first time I had ever seen a prominent LGBT character. Growing up in Peru, I don’t think it was ever an issue that crossed my mind- representation, I mean. It was sort of there, hovering in my subconscious, and if I had seen LGBT related content or entertainers, it was something that wasn’t broadly discussed. Now that I think back on it, it was like the Liberace example. He was flamboyant, but people that weren’t “in the know” didn’t know or wanted to accept that Liberace was gay.

It’s begun. The beginning of the end. After the 7th book came out, and left me unsatisfied — a feeling carried over the 6th book and the 5th film — I swore to never see Harry Potter at the cinema ever again. A promise easy to keep with the 6th film, but then… it was hard to keep it when the first promotional materials for HP7 were released.

Well played, Warner. Well played.

Deathly Hallows is perhaps Yates’ best attempt at a Harry Potter adaption, but considering the other two – it isn’t saying that much. In the greater scale of things, it might follow on Azkaban’s footsteps as an interesting film filled with anguish and desperation… of I guess, the teenage sort. If the book didn’t work for you, the film seems to improve on action and characters. It’s also of great comfort to say that The WB’s decision of splitting the film in two parts was hardly a bad commercial or creative choice… at least for the fans of the books, who will savor each an every detail.

But then again, considering how many chapters were crammed into this first part, one has to wonder what’s left for part two if not only the “last battle” which, in the book, happened off-page… and that epilogue that’s ripped out of the most poorly written fanfiction.

For the non-readers or those who haven’t seen HP6… well, you’re screwed. It really doesn’t work without the background, and you’re better without watching it, if you’re going to start complaining. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows feels like made for the fans of the series only.

Not like I’m any taller, but if Radcliffe were taller, he’d be hotter.
His high-contrast Harry Potter stubble is totally quiveration. LOL

The posters don’t seem like regular character posters, though. More like teaser character posters, even if it seems late to be releasing teasers now~~~ I can’t remember if the WB has ever released teaser character posters.

Is this being referred as HP 7 Part 1, instead of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1? Maybe it was a typographical decision more than a branding one?

More posters over at MovieMobsters!

I want to say I have rekindled my affairs with Harry Potter fandom, but I still don’t approve of Warner’s decision of making this a 2-part film, as well as the Fake 3D conversion. I also don’t approve of the Epilogue. LOL

I was talking to some friends last week, and they also disapproved the Epilogue. In fact, they said Deathly Hallows was the weakest book of the whole series — Testing the waters, I told them I thought Half-blood Prince was also weak, and to my surprise… they also agreed.

My friend’s favorite book is Azkaban, followed by Phoenix. FYI.

I really want to feel giddy, but things that jumped out~~~ Ginny is taller than Harry. I feel sad for Daniel Radcliffe, whom I totally love, but oh! If he only were taller!

Then there’s Ron protecting (or is he pulling) Hermione reminded me of Harry protecting her against the werewolf. I’m trying not to be shippy, but that just sort of brought back that scene.

Harry has high on drugs eyes when he meets Voldie.

And that snake looks like crap.
