Can someone PLEASE explain Harry Potter to me??? Please!!!!!! I know I am probably behind the eight ball because I haven’t read any of the books. But I have seen all the films…and it still doesn’t make any sense to me.
Let me explain. I went along last night with my brother and a various assortment of kids, all appropriately decked out as a variety of wizards, goblins, death-eaters etc, to see Harry Potter and the Hallowed Something. And it was alright I guess but I just so don’t get it. Isn’t he supposed to be some kind of super wizard? I thought that was the central theme of the whole thing. But honestly he seems about as useless as tits on a bull. I mean, can he actually do any magic? He seems to have nice range of parlour tricks but whenever he actually needs to do something useful he comes up empty. Or, to be more precise, sometimes he can really turn in on and other times he seems like a gormless twat. 🙂
At one point he, Hermione and the Ginger One are confronted by a group of body-snatchers…or something…who I would have thought would have been a bit lower on the magic scale than the Chosen One. But when confronted with this numerically superior, but magically inferior force, is their first move to grab their wands to magic the body-snatchers arses? No…they run. Then, after their inevitable capture, they are taken by the body-snatchers to the house of some baddy witches and warlocks, who, angry at the body-snatchers for something, proceed to dispatch them in about 2 seconds flat. Okay, I’m a little skeptical at this point but hey, maybe the baddy witches and warlock are better magicians…but then Harry, Hermione and the Ginger One kick their arses, no problems. Sooooooooo, they can’t beat the body-snatchers but they can beat the baddy witches and warlocks…who can kick the body-snatchers arses in no time flat??
I’m soooooo confused…or do I smell convenient plot device? 🙂
