Harry Potter Movie News Rantings

I tend not to be emotional, therefore, I may regret this in a day's time...

This is outrageous! I am not a Sean Biggerstaff enthusiast, but I am an enthusiast of playing by the books--THE books! I realize that PoA, being such a long story, which they needed to cut down to movie-length, was necessary to hack up into pieces. Still, quidditch was a BIG--well...not BIG really--part of book 3. I can recall now, in my mind, how excited Oliver Wood was that quidditch season! How hard he trained that damned team until they had the cup! And it was the FIRST time that Gryffindor won the house quidditch cup in quite a while, was it not? I'm making assumptions that, simply because they yanked Wood from The Prisoner of Azkaban, they yanked quidditch, also--it only makes sense I think. Though, yes, I agree that quidditch is not crucial to the plot of that story, it is a good, semi-significant part of that particular book.

AND JUST THINK! No quidditch next movie, right? (I am letting my assumptions lead me.) There was no quidditch season in the Goblet of Fire either. This means that we slashers and fans of Hogwarts boys in general will not be seeing Daniel Radcliffe OR Tom Felton (or any other quidditch participant) in almost-tight-enough-so-that-I-may-see-the-outline-of-his-manly-regions quidditch trousers until MOVIE 5! The nerve! I was so looking forward to it! Does anyone else realize what kind of growing those boys will be doing soon... and now there will be an extra--what?--three or four years of waiting until they are seen in quidditch robes again! I don't know of the rest of the world, but I am willing to gather a petition and a group of protesters demanding a MALE HOGWARTS STUDENTS SPEEDO PARADE as compensation during one of the remaining books!

WAIT! Does this mean that CHO CHANG will not be featured either? (Hopefully so; my jealousy causes me to dislike the girl.) The only time she comes up is during quidditch when Harry notices that she is pretty. In fact, she is not needed at all--his big crush on her is not entirely clear until GoF! Merlin, help us...

Here is the proof and reason for my entry.

  • REC: At This Hour

    You've got to read At This Hour (Harry/Draco, NC-17, currently anon). Surreal, haunting, emotional perfection right here.

  • REC: Draco Malfoy and the Seven Weasleys

    Proof that a story doesn't need to be sexually explicit to be totally tantalizing: Draco Malfoy and the Seven Weasleys [PG] Draco Malfoy as Snow…

  • REC: He Who Must Not Be Normal

    I did a horrid job keeping up with ALL fests this holiday season, just all of them. Even the ones I was involved in. That said, I wandered into…
