Potter's Magic

After watching the hilarious bisaya spoof, I said to myself I simply must see the real Harry Potter series. Ok, so I’m a little late getting into this movie; and yes, I am aware Daniel Radcliff had already grown pubes and all.

I tried recalling why I snubbed this movie, and suddenly it came to me- during the annual release of each installment, it always coincided with The Lord of the Rings premiere. Come on, who could resist the homoerotic undertones and electricity in the Frodo-Sam and Legolas-Aragorn tandems? It was bye bye Potter for me.

So now I’ve just begun to get acquainted with the Griffindorfs and the Slitherins (did I spell those correctly?) and I must say, they are the best companions on school nights, when going clubbing is out of question. I just watch a couple of minutes (say twenty) and then drift off to sleep. Works better than watching National Geographic Channel!

Let me just clarify, I’m not saying the movie is boring. It just the kind of light, entertaining tale I would savor night after night. Ah, nothing like an evening escape from the rigors of Biochem.

I can't stand it. I'm getting old and I don't have the imagination to follow the story.

@ quentin x: try starting with The Sorcerer's Stone. The characters are irresistable in the first installment.. It was really amusing, after finishing the first movie I couldn't wait to watch the next one

I love the books, the films, quite ok, but all the bits and pieces and the magic of rowlings style are deleted from the films.

Phoenix said...

@ mink: I haven't read the books yet = )

@ the spy in the sandwich: really? the last movie i saw was the goblet of fire, and the story wasn't as light as it was in the earlier part of the series.. plus, daniel wasn't as cute as he was before .. darn!
