Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part II Trailer, You Guys

By Gabe Delahaye / April 28, 2011

Well, little girls, I guess this is it! I’ve gotten in trouble for saying this before, but I don’t like the Harry Potter movies that much. DEAL WITH IT DOT GIF. They just seem like rather bloodless translations of the books with enough CGI to choke a sniggling pumpersquatch (or whatever). It’s also hard for me to get particularly lost in a sweeping, epic drama when I know exactly how it all turns out in the end. It’s kind of like Tom Cruise’s Valkyrie but with more wizards. And if you want to REALLY get into it, I don’t actually like the BOOKS that much past the fifth one. The fourth and fifth books are nicely dark and creepy and interesting, but after that everything gets kind of muddled. By the seventh book, the world that J.K. Rowling has created is splitting at the seams. (Are we really supposed to believe that there is an entire other planet’s worth of wizards but only six of them ever do anything of any importance?) But obviously, a lot of people are into this stuff. (Hahah, funniest thing I have ever said.) And this movie looks fine! Very exciting, I’m sure. I do like the part when Harry Potter hugs that old gypsie and they jump into the quarry! How excited is everyone, show of hands? OK, now, everyone else look around you: see the hands? THOSE ARE NERDS. #Gotcha.
