Severus Snape and the Marauders Review

Maybe I am one of the harsher people in the world or maybe I just love Harry Potter a little too much. Around a year ago something which I believe is honestly magical and brilliant was released by a company called Broad Strokes Productions. This story was written by Justin Zagri and directed by him and it was produced by Liana Minassian. I am a strong believer that they need a huge amount of credit when it comes to this product.

If I knew very little about Harry Potter I would give this a five out of five no issue because for one thing, the story is written well, for a kickerstarter film the special affects are great the acting is better than that of hollywood films and it is the story that many fans have been craving for. Like I’ve said I am a huge fan on Harry Potter so I am probably the worst person to talk about this film.

My first issue with this was the fact that our characters were in what appeared to be a muggle bar drinking what appears to be muggle alcohol. Now I get it, I am an inspiring film producer and I know that trying to creat the atomospher of a wizard area would cost more than they could probably afford. Thing like butter beer, which although is described as “That stuff’s not strong” does contain alcohol in it. I would just preferred to see them drink something which looked more than just coke and orange juice and I think one looked like beer, but I cant quite remember.

Now going back to the muggle area, I am saying it is a muggle pub due to the fact that Snape was using Oblivate on the bar man everytime he asked for ID, something which seems a little trival when it comes to the world of Harry Potter. I just don’t think that the Marauders would actively choose a pub ran by muggle. James and Sirus were both pure bloods so they would have very little connection with muggles, I mean look at the Weasley other than I think the twins who went to show off some card tricks to a pretty girl who worked in the post offic they had very little connection with muggles. The Weaslys didnt really mix its muggles but they had no issue with them. I just don’t think they would celebrate finishing school in that environment when you had plenty of wizard pubs up and down the country. They did try to fix this issue by saying it was Lily’s favourite.

The good part of that scene however almost tears as it reflected the movies and books, some of the words used made me think about Harry and even Neville’s choice of words when describing what the DA was meant to do and honestly that was greatly appreciated as a huge fan, so thank you for writing that. The scene was very touching how they were talking about how they have to fight and how someone of them wouldnt make it, that the fact they would have to fight people they know and their friends.

At the end of the scene Snape walks into where James, Sirus, Peter and Remus are and they apparate and appear in an open space.

I would like to say that I fall into the category of where I believe that James and Snape were as bad as each other when it came to one another, I do however have a lot of respect for James, they same can’t be said about Snape. That was another issue with this film.

James and Sirus were thought to be some of the best as magic and everything else surrounding in there year, might have been better than most in the school yet James needs to have Sirus, Petter and Remus to help him dual with Snape. Don’t get me wrong I think in the twenty years from when they left hogwarts to when Snape had that dual with Mcgonagall in the seventh film he learnt how to be better than James or Sirus ever were. I don’t believe at the age of eighteen that he would be able to take on all four of them. In the two years that had past from his worst memory where Snape was hung upside down by James and Sirus, he could do very little against two of them. Now unless he had some serious (Haha Serious like Sirus) death eater training during his summer holidays there is no way that in two years he could go from barely being able to defend himself against two people to be able to match four people.

I would have also liked to see James a little more cocky and arrogant, he’s he had some lovely sides to him but I would have like to see that shown when fighting  Snape. I would have liked to see him toy with him, make it look like he is going to be hit then at the last second block it. The only person who I believe they got perfectly in terms of personality was Peter, he was the last to jump in and help and I have a lot of respect of the actors mannerisms because they were down to a tee. Sirus was a very close second, then Remus, then Snape and lastly James. Lilly wasn’t in it enough for me to make a comment about her she appears really at the end and I felt though she looked perfect her and Snape’s relasionship had broken down by the end of school so felt the hug was a little out of place.

Going off topic a little, although this is done brilliant and I love the story and writing, the way it is shot. The acting i top knocked as well it is the fact that I am a huge fan that I cannot mark this high because it doesn’t fit with the characters that have already been built over the past twenty years and that is the only reason I am giving this a 3.5 out of 5.

If wasn’t a fan it would be five stars but I am the mean judge when the Harry Potter world is in play.

Watch it on YouTube. It is only twenty five miniutes of your life. There is also one made by the same people called the Greater Good, but the acting is not quite up to standard, guy who plays Abe is brilliant though.

Hope you liked reading. Here is the cast, how perfect do they look?

The Good and the Bad Egg

I am twenty one years old and therefore I have no idea who I am, I am not sure if what I think now will be the same in a few months let alone a few years. I often get sent hate on Facebook because of my age that because of it I can’t possible know anythingg that I am in fact thick and clueless. Look I know I come from a privilege background you don’t need to throw that into my face in a way to prove that my point means very little. I would also like to remind those people that in one of my classes, economics to be exact that I was the only person in my class who was English and actually lived in England. My teacher was ex mitary. There were two Russians in my class, one America, two people from China but lived in Hong Kong and another English person who lived in Dubai. Lastly a third English person who lived in France. So my class was made up of people from the four most powerful countries in the world and although i failed the class what I learnt from it still sticks to me today. I learnt about different countries, I learnt about how it doesnt matter where you are from or what colour your skin is we are all human. We had huge conversation about Russia and how in theory communism was a good thing. How that niether America or China can ask for their debts back without going under themselves. That if America and China did go under that England and Russia would be the power of the world in terms of finances anyway, which is pretty damn important.

Those who follow my blog posts will know that i agree with 65% of Trumps politics, one thing I would like to add is that you do not have to like someone to agree with their politics. I agre with Hillary 43% and Gary Johnson 68% of the time. As you can tell I am central but leaning right. What people seem to get confused is you don’t have to like the person to like their politics.

I think Trump is a dick but I seem to spent a lot of my time denfending him, I personally think he will be impeached but at the moment I have no issue with him in terms of politics. I am going to link to two videos which are a little right leading, one is from a member of the US Miltary based in Iraq and the other is a conversation between a liberal and a conservative. 

The first one is a conversation between a liberal and a conservative,

I have a lot of respect to Milo and although he is a little too right for me a lot of what he says makes sense and it is always good when a brit manages to get their point across. I like this video because it is not a normal conversation you would expect to see. I am all for fight for rights but dont fight for people when you know nothing about them. I like the quote which is something like this, If Obama said we are killing each other and said we have a problem in the African American community he would have been phenomenal, or something a long those lines. That is a quote from a black guy, not me so dont you dare send me hate, he has a lot of good points and all those people who are trying to protesting for black lives matter, watch this. Watch what your own man is saying, he is taking responsibility for his own actions and I am so sick of everyone trying to blame everyone else.

Next video is about the travel ban, before this video is played I would like to add that in 2013 around 441,000 people were detained in the USA. One of my friends was one of that number, he is British born and raised but he doesn’t look British if that makes any sense. Anyway that number average at around 1200 a day. Now Trump said 107 people were detained, then the numbers got pushed up to 200+ and then New York post posted number of around 700, all those numbers were less than the average in 2013 when Obama was president yet not one single person seemed to be protesting back then hen it was the average person. Yet because Trump openly target seven countries where he is going to be doing extra checks. Talking of my British friend he quite often gets detained when coming back into England as did a few of my friends from school. Yes it is slightly rainiest that they tend to target middle eastern loooking people but they are trying to stop terrioists which yes make up a small group of people but as this video shows the normal person in Iraq would kill the average America, why would that change just because they are in a different country?

Hope you like my post and here I was thinking I was going to be writing about fashion and shite, anyway hope you like.
