Though I may face life threatening consequences for saying this but still I am going to go out risk life and limb and say it out loud..."Harry Potter SUCKS!!"
Now I will wait and look over my shoulder for a green flash...none seen good.
Okay here's the deal, if you are under 12 years of age and are a Harry Potter fan it's alright. But to everyone else, it's A freaking children's book..seriously!
1.There are my general qualms with the plot, the progression of the series..mind you I say series because the books if taken individually at least the first two or three are passable. But from one novel to the next, (or one movie to the next..i really don't care) we see the same amphibian looking villain coming back..sometimes glued to the back of someone's head..sometimes in a diary and well the 4th book onwards in full flesh and blood (or whatever that is that flows or doesn't flow through his veins).
Then there is the bitchy, rich ass bully who surrounds himself with inept buffons and would make the mean girls look nice...the very hot nerdy chick...the goofy sidekick and the protagonist himself...the principal, the potions master with a bad cold and a hot one up his ass and other characters of less consequence who are never fully fleshed out.
2. Now the books are BIG..and there's 7 of them and one would wonder what in the world is in them?
Well nothing...hollow story lines, shallow characters and a laundry list of redundant plot items.
3. In their world they look down upon us "muggles". Seriously, a) You guys need to upgrade your wardrobes those curtain like robes look old enough to be in a museum.
b) Seriously candles? Didn't you guys ever hear of Edison or you just are too cheap too buy lightbulbs.
c) Speaking of candles...remember in the movies when they freshers are ushered into that dinner hall thing and the candles are like floating in mid air...? Well someone tell me why doesn't the wax drip onto their heads or something?
d) And those stupid wands...they can't hold a candle to our automatic weapons..so you'll be dead before teh you say the word.
4. How come everyone has to end up at Ron Weasly's house for Christmas every year? Harry I understand..but well Hermoine has a family to go back too doesn't she?
5. But the biggest ISSUE I have with this franchise is...*drumroll*... Well let's see the Goofy comedy relief LANDS THE HOT CHIKC...I MEAN WTF?
Meanwhile our hero has to make do with a Asian chick, an Indian chick (briefly) and then the goofy sidekick's sorry ass sister...Seriously WTF!
That's just some...I have a whole freaking list...but maybe some other time.
