Harry Potter Movies Ranting
I'm glad there are people in this world who realized how horrible the third movie was. Now onto my ranting...(this might get a little long).
Aboslutely unfaithful to the book. There were loads of important scenes (such as Lupin telling Harry about the Marauder's Map) cut out to be replaced by semi-funny, pretty corny jokes with the Whomping Willow. Also, Ron's lines kept being stolen by Hermione!! Plus, Hermione wasn't even Hermione!! WTF??!! Her hair was barely even curly and it was BLONDE!!! She was wearing PINK!!! The hell? Okay, Hermione would wear pink but I don't think she'd seriously wear some pink hoodie with a pastel rainbow belt. Hermione's not like that. And her hair...god, her hair. That was wrong. Dumbledore sucked! I miss Richard Harris!! Too bad he's gone. What's up with tying his beard?? I'd also like to say Ron was extremely neglected in this movie! Just because Ron broke his leg and can't go with Harry and Hermione back in time, doesn't mean he'll be invisible for the other parts of the movie. I mean, Hermione was turned into a cat in the second movie and she was certainly there! Plus, they made Ron seem like some brainless idiot! He's funny not stupid!! Jeez!! I seriously hate the muggle clothes. How come they can make Ron stay in his old sweaters while Harry and Hermione wear cool, modern muggle clothes? I know Hermione's a muggle-born and Harry lives with his muggle aunt and uncle, but they're not the reigning king and queen of high school or something! Especially with Hermione's clothes! I hated it! Especially the entire pink crap!!
Now the acting. I certainly have to say Dan and Rupert's acting skills have absolutely improved to professional-like acting!! I applaude you. Now with Emma...*snort* Was she even acting? I don't think so. She was like a trying-hard kind of actor in this movie. And what's with the line, "Is that really what my hair looks like from the back?" I don't know if that a-hole Kloves put that or Emma altered that line. Either way, that was wrong. Hermione certainly does NOT care how her hair looks like from the back!! And I've heard Cuaron let the kids wear their own clothes in some scenes and I think Emma wore hers in the last ones in her overly-cute pink getup. I just hated it that they made Hermione wear jeans. If Emma can't deal with the bookish style of Hermione, she should be fired. How inconsiderate of her.
And what's with punching Draco? Wasn't Hermione supposed to *slap* him? Punching made it seem stupid and I don't think Hermione would punch somebody. Emma probably altered that so she can have another reason to say "girl powaaaaah!!!". Ugh. Lupin was nice, but he seriously reminded me of Hitler with that moustache. And Professor Trelawny!! She's not crazy, she's just fake! And I did NOT like the fact they computerized her voice when she talked about the Dark Lord reuniting with his servant and blah blah blah...wrong!! She's not supposed to sound constipated! She's just supposed to sound misty and kinda eerie.
And from what I've seen in the GoF movie stills, there hasn't been much of an improvement. Hermione's hair is blonder and straighter than ever and she's wearing PINK modern clothes again!!! On the other hand, everything else seems fine. I just hope Emma doesn't alter some line or steals Ron's lines!!
To make things easier...I hated:
1. that they cut important scenes
2. that they made Ron sort of a loser
3. the muggle clothes
5. how the portrayed Hermione
6. jeez, forget it. I hated everything.
And if some Emma fan will go, "OMG!!1 WTF??/!!11 emma lyk Did n0t suck!!!!11 lyk ur juzt jeluzzz!!!!! ur lyk 2tali meean!!!11 shiz da gr8st actRss evaaahhh!!!!1 lyk gurL powaahh s n0t lam3!!!!!11 lyk duh!!!11 ur jst jeLuz!!!!!11 OMG!!11 m g0nna ryt a Leettr 2 emma h0w meen u r n sHiz g0nna kiLL u!!!!!11 OMG!!!!!11" h3r cLothz r0ck!!!!!1 i lyk 2Tali id0lyz h3r!!!!!11 n heRminee's hair wuz 2tali kewl!!!!11 i looo00ooOOOOoovd it!!!!!11 OMFG!!! ur jst jeluz!!!!!1 lyk OMG!!!!!11 ur jeluZ n m3een!!! ur a biatchZ!!!!!1111 m g0nna t3LL my m0Mmy!!!11" then I'm sorry for you.
