    "Not my daughter, you bitch!" An awesome moment for Molly Weasley. Also, McGonagall telling the Slytherin students to go to the dungeons is more epic when you realise that they were just going to their dorm rooms.

      There was a deleted scene - thankfully - of Slytherins in actual dungeons. Meanwhile in the book when Aberforth was told that Slytherins are being evacuated, he protested that they could have kept them hostages to leverage their Voldemort-loyalist families, to which Harry said something along the lines of Ablus wouldn't have done that.

    "As hilariously dumb as the Harry Potter world is, it was a fun place to be for a while." This is the most coherent thing anyone has ever said about the series. I could never understand why these stories are so polarizing. It is good to know that I am not the only one who lies somewhere in the middle.

      CharmedNijntje Před 2 měsíci +31

      I've thought about it for a while and I think the polarizing part comes from the fact that the Harry Potter world is such a lovely magical thing to be in but the characters and the story are very flawed. So I think it's easy to love it whilst having a lot of critisism. Just a thought though! (edit, grammar)

      @CharmedNijntje There are millions of great stories out there, and almost all will have questionable writing decisions and flaws, (in the story, not the characters. Flawed characters are a must to make a story read/watchable.) I think the unwavering support for the Harry Potter series has a lot more to do with nostalgia. That is fair! I will forever love and defend the High School Musical movies, for example, even though they make no objective sense. What I have a hard time understanding is the amount of vitriolic hate that some people seem to have towards it.

    9:02 Actually the guy on Draco’s left is Blaise Zabini. They had to to replace Crabbe as one of Draco’s sidekicks because the actor who played him was getting into a lot of trouble in real life. Blaise was also on the train with Draco in Half Blood Prince.

    The thing about Seamus being good at blowing things up was actually a running gag in the movies that wasn't in the books. It started in the Charms class in the first movie when Seamus blew up his feather when they were practicing Wingardium Leviosa.

  • princeofalbany
    princeofalbany Před 2 měsíci +391

    Couple of things:
    Voldemort's curse rebounded because of Lily's sacrificial love for Harry, so it's still consistent.
    The guy who played Crabbe was arrested before the last movie, so they had to replace him in that scene with Blaise Zabini.
    Harry and Ginny's relationship had more buildup in the books; Harry realizing his feelings for her was actually a subplot in Half Blood Prince.
    As for the whole thing with Snape, Lily was basically the only person he had as a kid, between an abusive father and being bullied at school, she was his whole world but he ruined their friendship by calling her a mudblood in a moment of anger and spent the rest of his life regretting how he let things end. Wanting to protect her son is what any friend would do. As for Dumbledore, I do believe he still cared for Harry but he was pragmatic; he knew that defeating Voldemort required things to be done in a certain way and using Snape and Harry the way he did was necessary for that.

    • Amethyst
      Amethyst Před 2 měsíci +39

      Was basically looking for this. Don't get me wrong, much can be criticized in the movies and books, but some things people over the internet all typically point out actually aren't inconsistencies or problems, but something out of context or overlooked.
      Just an example that comes to mind are people saying it's inconsistent where sometimes you have to fully pronounce and recite spells perfectly, and other times they point their wands without saying or doing anything special and the spell still works. But in the books and briefly in the movies they talk about non-verbal casting, and those who master spells don't have to do all of the typical processes to cast the spells (and mastery not having to be exclusive to people like Dumbledore, but mostly adults who have cast magic for quite a while).

    • Spider Lily
      Spider Lily Před 2 měsíci +9

      Except the 'if you throw AK at someone then people they protect are immune to death' and the most isiotic deus ex machina that was only invented in the last book.

    • Amethyst
      Amethyst Před 2 měsíci +7

      @Spider Lily That’s fair. Though I like the thematic “You decided to take life with magic and now magic says heck nah, the one thing you relied on.” But I kinda agree that it’s quite unearned or feels like it came out of left field.

    • Spider Lily
      Spider Lily Před 2 měsíci +9

      @Amethyst Yeah, I wouldn't care for it if the AK actually HAD this huge handicap (it would explain why people don't use it way more often), but it just shows up in last books to explain Harry's horcuxiness and give all Hogwarts studen Mario immunity stars so nobody dies anyomore. xD
      I like the fandom's reading which is that when Voldemort agreed to spare Lily he made nor-quite-unbreakable-vow to Severus and thus killing Lily brok it.

    • princeofalbany
      princeofalbany Před 2 měsíci +17

      @Spider Lily The Sacrificial Protection wasn't thought up in the last book; it first mentioned in Goblet of Fire and was sort of hinted at before that. And it's not about the AK specifically; any act to save a person from death by giving your own life creates the Protection.

  • Kent Huang
    Kent Huang Před 2 měsíci +198

    I’ve always thought it was a bit unfair that everyone acts like Pansy wanted to turn Harry over just because she’s a Slytherin and was evil but I think she was afraid and believed that maybe by turning Harry over to Voldemort that he would keep his “promise” to hurt no one else. I think she had become truly afraid of him after witnessing what he could do at Hogwarts without anyone stopping him especially when he was angry. Sure Pansy might have been a bit mean and not the biggest fan of Harry, Ron, and Hermione but I think she was even more afraid of getting those she did care about getting hurt if Harry wasn’t turned in. It was during a war and she probably saw what happened to those who disobeyed Voldemort and I think several other Slytherins wanted to fight Voldemort’s tyranny but terrified to stand up to him. Horace Slughorn had said that Slytherins were cunning and sought power but they aren’t cowards and know when it isn’t worth risking their lives if it was a losing situation and that they would do whatever it took to keep themselves and those who cared about safe.

    • Madison Kurenyshev

      Just like how many Germans/non-Jewish people did in WW2. Voldemort and his Death Eaters and followers are basically Nazis with magic, and even then, they still failed.

    • Inertian
      Inertian Před 2 měsíci +15

      The Slytherin students likely also had family on Voldemort’s side, so it would have been cruel to make them choose between fighting with or against their families.
      Also, in the book people underage were told to evacuate. Slytherins took the opportunity. Even Slughorn left and returned with reinforcements.

    • SevHighwind86
      SevHighwind86 Před měsícem +2

      @Inertian Yes! I was so annoyed they just ignored that some Slytherins did return to fight. McGonagall having the Slytherins locked up pissed me right off! I thought having all four houses uniting to fight was the point of the books.

  • excessively fangirling bookworm
    excessively fangirling bookworm Před 2 měsíci +76

    15:10 just want to point out that Voldy’s death still upsets me so much.
    It’s cinematically beautifully shot/ edited so it looks all mystical and fantastical and great and whatever.
    But the whole point of this moment in the book was that Voldemort’s lifeless body just dropped down *like everyone else who’s dead would BECAUSE HE WAS JUST A NORMAL HUMAN* and I’m so frustrated that while it looks cool, this scene defeats the purpose of showing the audience that Voldy was just some dude (with arguably superior powers) who went haywire.

    • BrownieInTheBin
      BrownieInTheBin Před měsícem +5

      That's actually a really great point. I didn't even think about it like that at all. I guess it's a product of reading the books as a kid, but it just felt like Voldemort was some supernatural boogeyman rather than just being a dude who's basically a terrorist. You're completely right though, they missed a really great opportunity to point that out.

    • excessively fangirling bookworm
      excessively fangirling bookworm Před měsícem +3

      @BrownieInTheBin imo he's a bit of both because his image changes with time:
      At first, he IS the "supernatural boogeyman" because he is undeniably scary and overpowering to 11yo Harry. But when Harry grows older and has to face (and defy) him several times, Voldemort seems less unbeatable, especially after they start to find explicit ways to destroy him forever. Moreover, in the later books /movies as you find out about his backstory - about him being a half-blood, discarded by his father and abandoned by his mother, neglected in the orphanage, about him finally receiving recognition in school and consecutively growing his need for power and superiority - and you learn through Harry that this man could have grown up like a comparatively normal person if some factors in his life had been different. tbh this arc started the moment we learned that "Lord Voldemort" was just an alias for someone with an otherwise boring name and unassuming appearance.

    • Mr Otaku
      Mr Otaku Před 23 dny +1

      I think the movies one actually makes more sense. Rowling made it a point repeatedly that Voldemort dehumanised himself, especially after creating the horcruxes. If that’s the case, then doesn’t it make sense for him to die as a supernatural being than as a regular human because he essentially stopped being a human when he became Voldemort?

    • Remi92
      Remi92 Před 2 měsíci +37

      Yahhhh Snape did a tone of Extraordinary things over the entire Harry Potter series that people overlook.
      Specifically because he didn’t have a nice bubbly personality.
      He literally saved/protected Harry atleast 10 times (no one has saved him more), he was a spy against Voldemort, he gave Lupin medicine (despite that guy never helping him when they where kids), he gave Dumbledore an extra year to live (when that poison would have killed him within days/ a couple of months), then he killed Dumbledore so that Draco wouldn’t have to!!
      He even helped Harry get the sword horcrux and using his last bit of strength, he made sure Harry knew what needed to happen to win.
      Honestly without Severus, the wizarding world would have lost to Voldemort and still people say stupid stuff like but he wasn’t nice!!!! What does nice have to do with saving the world 😂 I would gladly take a mean teacher who saves my life, than a nice one whose irrelevance means I die at the age of 12 at a silly quidditch match.

    In the books, you get the person's voice when you take polyjuice, which makes sense as it changes your vocal cords as well. Which is why only doing it for Mad-Eye in Movie 4 breaks the whole movie franchise's uses of it.

      @R B well... they had him do a spot on hagrid impersonation in his office during his bond villain reveal... so, in the reality of the movie, barty is shown to be a talented impressionist. to be fair, he does a pretty good snake impression too.

    • Hafsa Jaseem
      Hafsa Jaseem Před 2 měsíci +1

      I think it's actually because Harry and Ron know her so well and are so used to her voice that they hear her instead of Bellatrix. I'm pretty sure it was mentioned in the book being that way!

    • R B

      Bro Před měsícem +1

      ​​@Hafsa JaseemNo, that isn't how it works. The book meant they could hear Hermione's inflection in Bellatrix's tones.
      Also, I agree that Barty probably just impersonated Mad-Eye pretty well. After all, he learned Mad-Eye's behaviors enough to fool even Dumbledore. He acts literally identical to the real guy most of the time.
      Seeing Mad-Eye in the seventh movie and clips of him from the fourth, you'd never guess they were actually different people at all.

  • Yazz
    Yazz Před 2 měsíci +102

    The fact that not one pupil from one of the other three houses was so scared of Voldemort and for their own life that they were like 'well maybe we should give him Harry so we won't all die, you know?' or that not a single Slytherin was on HPs side makes it so much more ridiculous that JKR still says that not every Slytherin is a bad Voldemort supporter. Well Joanne you can say that all you want but you didn't write it like that and you didn't intervene when they put it into the movies so, eat a shoe.
    Also I think it's very funny that McGonagall just puts all the Slytherins in the Dungeons, knowing that a fight for the school is about to ensue, basically just trapping them down there 😂

    • Ghyslain Abel
      Ghyslain Abel Před 2 měsíci +20

      As much as I agree with you, it is ridiculous that no Slytherin was against Voldemort, it makes sense that every Slytherin were sent out (in the book)/in the dungeon (in the movie). A battle was about to begin, the teachers did not have time to sort who they could trust.

    • Grey

They didn't have time to sort out allegiances, despite knowing that sending the slytherin house away as a whole would send away more allies than enemies and still not successfully send all their enemies away. As though the dissenting kids couldn't just sneak out.

    I was waiting for Alex's wheeze when Harry says "Albus Severus Potter"
    I completely agree that Harry while mightve been thankful for those figures, naming his child after Lupin and Sirius would've been much more worthy.
    The son really should've been named Remus Sirius (or vice versa-just think Remus Sirius has a better flow to it than the other way around even though I actually think Sirius is a much cooler first name). Those men never had any angle or agenda for themselves or anyone else. They were always about loving and protecting Harry, not to mention both incredibly brave men who fought against the dark wizards and lost their lives for the cause.

    He had multiple ppl for gryffindor handful of ravenclaws and a couple of hufflepuffs but not one named slytherin.
    Slytherins main trait is ambition so it’s just weird that they label everyone that has ambition as evil even though Harry himself is proof otherwise.

    Rowling never meant Snape to be the ‘good guy’ in the end. She said it herself: "You can't make him a saint: he was vindictive & bullying. You can't make him a devil: he died to save the wizarding world.'' That was the idea, it's not black and white.
    She also said: "Is he a hero? You see, I don't see him really as a hero. He-he's spiteful, he's a bully-all of these things are still true of Snape, even at the end of this book."

      But in the eyes of a lot of the fandom he did become a hero, and then those who saw his bad side in response started being overtly negative about him.

    Despite a lot of the BS that has come out of her mouth, there's ONE thing I agree with in terms of what Rowling has said...And she has always said Severus was a shades of gray character. And I agree. He isn't totally good, and he isn't totally bad either. You're valid if you like him, and you're valid if you don't. However, those who only watch the movies, vs those who only read the books, like and dislike Severus for very DIFFERENT reasons.
    Because he's very different in the films, compared to the books. And if you're like me and read the books AND watched the movies, you get to see movie Severus as more expansion pass version to the books. Movie Snape is DLC. And you honestly get the best of both worlds IMO. You get the Snape that people really like who gets to interact with more of the Wizarding Community in the movies, which thus makes him more well rounded, vs just seeing Severus from Harry's perspective; a vindictive man.

      Envious of her mother's cleverness and importance, Helena stole her diadem and left Scotland, believing the item could help her become wise enough to accomplish her goals. Ashamed of her daughter's betrayal, Rowena Ravenclaw never admitted her daughter's treachery, hiding the fact that the diadem was no longer in her possession.[4]
      Having fallen fatally ill and on her deathbed, Rowena desperately asked the Bloody Baron, who was deeply in love with Helena, to find her daughter and bring her back to her so that she could see her one last time. Helena tried to hide from him, but the Baron managed to track her down to a forest in Albania. When she heard the Baron blundering through the forest toward her, she hid the diadem inside a hollow tree. Helena refused to come with the Baron and rejected his affections and he stabbed her in a fit of rage. After seeing what he had done, remorseful of his action, he stabbed himself to death.

    9:54 - The plan was setting up Draco for failure as to punish the Malfoys for their general cowardness and infidelity to uncle Voldy when he returned. It was not meant to be a genius plan to deal with Dumbledore: it was a torture method.
    I mean, c'mon, it's not even that hard to understand that from the movies: the full plan of Voldy WAS Draco failing in his mission, the flaw in the plan (that's the litteral name of the chapter in which Voldemort dies) was exactly that, since Dumbledore felt like he needed to die, he chose to prevent Harry from intervening in his death, failing to defend himself against Draco, making Draco's mission an unplanned partial success, and thus making Draco, not Snape, the lord of the Elder Wand, until Harry overpowered Draco in the fight in the mansion.

    Voldemort never intended Draco to succeed, though, it was a mission he was supposed to fail. Voldemort intended Draco to either die in the attempt or fail to follow through. If he failed, Voldemort himself would have tortured him. The whole plan was to punish Draco's father. Of course, he doesn't believe actually think some kid barely out of school can kill Dumbledore, the one wizard he's personally terrified of. Dumbledore comes up with a plan in which Draco won't be punished for failing and also won't be forced to murder him, splitting his soul. He also makes it believable enough that Snape won't be outed, either.
    The entire thing with the Prophecy is kinda silly, it only came true because Voldemort believed it. Neither can survive while the other lives, it is definitely true. That said, it's not because of some prophecy, it's true because Voldemort won't leave Harry alone. If nobody had repeated the prophecy, it wouldn't have come true.
    There's so much the movies leave out of the story for time that explains some (not all or even most) of the weird inconsistencies in the story.
    The one thing I like about Dumbledore is that his mentality never truly changes. As a teenager, he joined Grindelwald under the mantle of “for the greater good.” Even after defeating him, his mentality hasn't actually changed. He'll use anyone and everyone as a tool, including himself, “for the greater good.”

      About Voldemort's plan the guy in this video thinks Voldemort was trying to be the master of the Elder Wand but at this point Voldemort is not looking to replace his original want, the twin of Harry's.
      Agree on the prophecy. It's about believing and making it come true. Self fullflling prophecy, in a very literal sense.
      I need to add that movie-Dumbledore is characterized as a villain in that last movies whereas in the books he is more gray but ultimately a good human being who cares about Harry.
      His plan incorporated also a glimpse of hope for Harry to get rid of Voldemort's lost shard of his corrupted soul so he can be free, he also accounted Voldemort couldn't kill Harry based on two assumptions: 1. Harry's mother protection charm was in Voldemort's blood. 2. Elder Wand ownership.
      Dumbledore couldn't predict Snape death, he intended to die and be the last owner of the wand. And he kinda was but he also couldnt known Draco would succeed in disarming him and that ruined the brilliance of his plan to die a true martyr. Without Draco expelliarmus, Snape would've killed Dumbledore but on the orders of the latter, a planned suicide if you want to see it that way. So the ownership would've never transferred to Snape. The Wand would ultimately become useless as a servant of a dead wizard. Perfect plan ruined by Draco's surprising spell (of course Dumbledore being fatally weakened by the ring's horrocrux curse and the potion at the cave hindering his reflexed and genius didn't help).
      Snape couldn't correct Voldemort otherwise he could've risked Draco's and Harry's life and the whole master operation.
      At the end it worked, just as Dumbledore envisioned for Harry: free of Voldemort's soul fragment, Voldemort without ownership of the Wand, Harry as a Master of Death, and finally Voldemort defeated.
      Dumbledore didn't raise Harry as "a pig for slaughter" thats Severus Snape own words and Dumbledore wasn't ready to correct him at that moment. Dumbledore withheld info from Snape too. Snape didn't need to know the scope of Dumbledore's love for Harry. It's clear few people knew the deep love Dumbledore felt for Harry. McGonagalls saw it too by intuiton I guess. Harry knew at the end too.
      In the films the greatest vulnerable moments of Dumbledore are erased:
      1. Harry and Dumbledore real talk in the Headmaster's Office after the events of The Department of Mysteries and Sirius's Death. In this scene Dumbledore cries.
      2. In the limbo scene finally Dumbledore confess his past and shame, and reafirms his love for Harry and they say farewell.
      The only truly vulnerable moment they left was the Cave's scene when Dumbledore is getting living nightmares from the potion. But this doesn't do anything to moviegoers because Dumbledore is apparently rambling and we don´t know the context at the moment.
      But all that nuance is lost in the films and most potterheads are convinced of this outrageous theory of machiavellian cold Dumbledore. His love for Harry got lost in translation from a medium to another and fanfictions didn't help either.

      That’s the beauty of prophecies tho. You don’t know what actions you take that could cause the prophecy to come true. There were a lot of things that fell into place for the prophecy to work out. First, Snape had to be there when it was given and also be thrown out before Trelawney finished. For Voldemort, it was him not hearing the entire prophecy. That was why he needed it in the 5th book. He clearly missed the “and the dark lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the dark lord knows not.” That was a crucial part and Voldemort not knowing it is what set his ultimate demise into motion. And after having his body destroyed and being a parasitic soul for 13 years, I think he was rightfully paranoid about having Harry just out there. He was a threat no matter what.

    Alex captured my thoughts exactly at the end of how I felt about the franchise. There's a lot to nitpick about both the books and the movies but despite that and Rowling's best efforts to sour people on the franchise (did we really need to learn how wizards do their buisness? And how on earth do you think the werewolves in your story are a great metaphor for Aids?) It's still a lot of fun and a huge part of my (and many others') childhood.
    One thing that I think really helped a lot of the franchises in the 2000s is that they all felt like they were made with a clear begining middle and end. When Return of the King, Revenge of the Sith and Deathly Hallows Part 2 came out they all really did feel like the end of their stories and you didn't know if there would be more films in their respective series. The fact that all such film series did eventually continue in one form or another makes it hard not to feel cynical any time a film tries to advertise itself as a finale.

    Btw shamus having to blow the bridge up is a reference to him always doing spells wrong and making explosions throughout the series

    I always took McGonagall’s comment about Seamus was a hilarious reference to the first book/movie where he blows up the feather when they’re practicing Leviosa

  • The Kazoo Queen
    The Kazoo Queen Před 2 měsíci +18

    The bit about Seamus being good at blowing stuff up isn't a reference to him being Irish, it's a reference to the ongoing visual gag in the movies that Seamus' spells often backfire on him. That line was not in the book.

      But why was the one Irish guy always blowing stuff up?

    • The Kazoo Queen
      The Kazoo Queen Před 14 dny

      @Mohammed Hussain He wasn't. In the books, it only happens once in his first year when he accidentally set his feather on fire during the first Charms lesson.
      In the movies, there were a few other times they added instances of his spells backfiring into ash (such as when he tried to mix a potion and it started smoking, or when his spell to turn water into rum smoked), but none of them were explosions/"blowing up" something.

    I know this all came down to casting one of the greatest actors in the entire history, but wasnt Snape meant to be the same age as Harry's parents, as well as Lupin and Black? They were all at the same class and meant to be in their forties at the last book, and Snape looks like he's in his 50's-early 60's

    13:03 right so this isn’t explains well in the movies but basically Lilly’s determination to keep Harry safe cast a protection that kept Harry safe from Voldemort so that when Voldemort tried to kill Harry as a baby the curse rebounded on Voldemort making Harry the 7th horcrux and there for when Voldemort tried to kill Harry again in the forest he only killed the horcrux inside Harry.

    Can we just be honest, Snape would have wrecked Mcgonagal if he wanted to. He deflects her spells perfectly into the other death eaters and then gets away without a scratch by flying without a broom. That was all exactly what he wanted to happen. Makes you wonder how he matched up to Voldemort and Dumbledor. From everything we learn he seems easily as impressive as either of them

    Harry Potter (the movies more than the books) was my entire childhood. The first movie came out in November 2001, and in January 2002 I started Grade 1 so it was like Harry Potter and his friends started school at Hogwarts and a few months later I started school and then I grew up watching the movies and watching them grow up as I grew up. The final movie was when I was in Grade 10, I still remember being so sad that it was over and wishing it could end when I was in Grade 12 so it would be like a complete cycle.

    Naming your child after the two men who abused you and didn't care about you was my final breaking point with Harry Potter. I still read HP Fanfiction but I could never re read the books. Why not name a son Vernon Dudley Potter and the daughter Petunia Lilly Potter.

    REEDA Před 2 měsíci

    9:49 to be fair, at that point Voldemort wasn't planning on taking the Elder Wand, don't know how it goes in the books but in the movies he looks for it after being told that MAYBE the Elder Wand could help him kill Harry since he can't use his own and apparently (after failing with Lucius' wand) every other wand won't do it either.. and that revelation doesn't come until Deathly Hallows Pt 1 waaaaay after killing Dumbledore.

  • Amne

    To clear up a point:
    Voldemort did not die in the movies because Neville killed Nagini. He died because of his own death spell getting pushed back onto him. And him, not having any more horcruxes and being a mortal yet again, dies because of it.

      But Nagini was horkrux. A lot of Voldemort's soul was there. So hadn't it been for Neville who knows maybe Harry would loose afterall he is just a student. But Harry will get all the glory coz he is asertive and bold and doesn't show weakness or insecurity

    4:45 I'm Luna and Hermione if they were mashed together into one person, with random facts and knowledge that no one cares about until they realize that my knowledge can help them, but only if it's about to be too late, or if they tried everything else and didn't work until they try my advice/help/facts. It's why Luna is my favorite out of all the characters. I relate to her so much, and Hermione, too. I don't like that we weren't introduced to her until halfway through the series, but when we finally were, she became my favorite. As someone who gets treated like both Hermione and Luna do in the movies, by my own family, and usually with some form of aggression, I always channel my inner Luna. I ask myself, "What would Luna do?" It helps me shake off the mad/sad/frustrated feelings whenever they try to bring me down. Then I listen to Taylor Swift, or Madalen Duke, depending on the mood, and I just let it go, like Elsa. She's another character I also relate to, minus the ice powers. If only, if only... Speaking of which, have you done a video about _Holes,_ with Shia Lebouf? Another great book that wasn't ruined by a shitty movie/TV series adaption, as many books have been done before, especially now with all the shitty recycled IP and unoriginal crap like the remakes, sequels, and prequels that movie studios are only doing just to make money.

    Seamus blowing things up wasn’t really a book thing. It was just a thing they came up with for the first movie as a throwaway joke that Seamus always managed to blow things up by accident. He did it a few times in the later movies too and then in the last one they included this line as a callback to that.
    I really liked that addition too, Seamus and Dean barely have any personality at all. So at least this way Seamus gets to be remembered as “the kid who blew things up all the time”.

  • JCrushFitness

    First off, Voldemort wasn’t interested in the elder wand and had no idea that Dumbledore had it in the 6th movie. Second of all, he didn’t think Draco would ever be able to kill Dumbledore, he intended for Draco to fail and either be killed in the process or killed by him for failing afterward. It was punishment for his father getting captured

    It is interesting to hear from someone who grew up with the Harry Potter books and movies. As someone who was already an adult when this was going on I felt that the series got less interesting after Prisoner of Azkaban. A lot of the odd things that Alex noted jumped out at me while reading the books and watching the movies. I am not certain that I even bothered to watch a couple of the final ones at the theatre.

    9:00 the kid on the left of Draco is Blaise Zabini. He replaced Crabbe in this scene due to the actor getting fired after it was discovered that he was doing drugs.

    Regarding the Elder Wand. Voldemort apparently didn't realize at the time that Dumbledore had it. My guess is because J.K. Rowling only came up with the set when writing the final book, as a way for Harry to win.

    I loved that you put your video in perspective at the end, explaining your real feelings about the whole franchise and it's importance. Our generation was branded with incredible sagas that were events in their own rights at each releases. I wish something as magnificent came up today.

  • excessively fangirling bookworm

    End of an era: there’s a lot of plot holes and irregularities within the HP universe, but it’s arguably one of the most impactful book series, because it defined an entire generation.
    Additionally, the books/ movies/ merch/ spin-offs always let the right amount of time pass by to let fans lose interest in the story just to then come back full force. And since it’s still somewhat relevant today, there are and will be parents that grew up with HP who will introduce their children to the universe, so that another generation will look into it (and perhaps become obsessed).

    paige muva Před 2 měsíci

    I don’t think that the point of revealing Snape's nemories is to show that he's a good guy, it just gives us insight into his character and motivations. The only reason he helped Harry was because he was obssessed with Lily. Also, the whole thing about his shock when he found out about Harry's fate. It just tells us more about Dumbledore's motivations and shows us that though he's depicted as a "good" character, his methods are sometimes morally questionable.

    It will forever bother me Harry obviously named all his kids, like Ginny lost people in the war too and they're her kids as well also Snape was still awful to Harry his whole life and Dumbledore essentially raised Harry to die, like those aren't the people to name your children after (also something about the name Albus Severus makes me angry)
