Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review

To be fair I wasn’t going to move this over from my other blog because frankly I wanted to review things which weren’t really well known, but then again I thought it would be a waste not to move i over and frankly as you guys probably have notice I have a huge obsession with Harry Potter so I felt like this needs to be on here wheather it is popular or not.

As you know or you don’t, Harry Potter it was the first book series I wanted to read, you see I suffer from dyslexia and I also have his thing that I should try anything that I know I am going to fail at, enter this thing called reading. When I first got into the Harry Potter series my mum use to read them to me, she did this up to the fifth book. I also had the audio books and I use to follow the words. It takes me about thirty minutes to read the first Harry Potter because of the audio books having in away brainwashed me over the years and I can simply scan the books without really looking and I know the words.

The reason I am saying all this is because my dream is to be a film producer (the ones who cast and get all the funding for the film. My parents are both accountants and they always joke about how even though I am determined not to follow there route I still what a job where I have to deal with budgets) I didn’t watch the first or the seven film in the cinema no idea why I just know I didn’t. Harry Potter made me interested in the making of a film, the behind the scenes aspects. I’ve probably watched the special features as many times as the films them selves so to say the least I was really excited for an eighth Harry Potter book.

The good thing about this, is for people like me who struggle with reading having it in play format is perfect it makes it easier to read each word rather than having a blurry mess of words which the other Harry Potter books have caused. I have studied Drama in the past so I am use to this sort of format, my brother no so much. It annoyed him a little he is far more academic than I am, he actually enjoys reading and although he has done a bit of acting in the past, but he is not use to this format. I do agree this story lacked the detail that it needed, the reason Shakespeare works so well is because it is beautifully written and has plenty of detail. This script lacked it and due to a thin story it doesn’t come across as well. Then again I shouldn’t really compared one of the greatest writers to Harry Potter but then I can be a drama snob. Well I can be a snob full stop.

The next bit contains spoilers. There are parts of this story really well planned out, the friendship between Albus, and Scorpio is probably a better friendship than the original trio. Although I understand Ron and Hermione fighting all the time, that does tend to happen to people who are trying to remain friends but clearly like each other. Most of the time it was over being jealous of someone. That being said Harry and Ron’s friendship annoys me at two points, the first being Ron spends weeks hating Harry for thinking that he put his name in the goblet of fire, yet he believe Harry at once for Voldemort return and he walks away from Harry and Hermione in the last book. He also believes Harry is not the heir of Slytherin. Those three things I think are all related and well Ron does one, then he does the opposite, then he goes back again. If they were really best friends then I doubt it would be so all over the place. It might have been jealously though. See that was the redeeming quality of this book the bad points are long.

The whole concept of the time thing just seemed really pointless and also broke rules which JK Rowling had already set out. The Time Turner doesn’t change time because after all it has already happened. If that makes sense Harry even says that in the third book. So these two boys go back and change the past which has broken one of the main rules that were already set out. It’s really annoyed me and thus made the whole book more like a bad fan fiction. The whole Voldemort having a daughter just seemed cliché as fuck.

There were nice moments sure, but you have that even in the pile of crap of Fifty shades of grey (which let’s be honest is a book about stalking) the plot was weak and almost needed the detail which the books have, maybe just maybe it would have been decent then rather than wtf is happening. Anyway it’s poor in harry potter terms but better than some of the crap theses days so gets a 3/5

I originally gave this a two but I think that was just the incail shock about how bad it was frankly it is not bad, it is simply average in my opinon.

How to Survive Your Twenties?

 

My first point is travel, now some people may say you have years and years to do this but in your twenties you are not expected to be ranking it in so working in a bar in a different country is not such a bad thing, go see the world because after all you only live once and when you are in your twenties you have reached the peak of your althtic ability so you can enjoy the world a lot more. My grandmother has been traveling the world since she retired but there are certain things she struggles with that maybe if she had been young she would be able to see full.
The second thing I would like to say is about work. Now I’ve never really had a job, I actually got my first job during the summer which waitressing, it was just twice a week but it was something. Any ways carringing on, I think a lot of people stress so much about getting a job, now of course don’t be one of those people sitting on there are expecting a really well paid job to come to you but equally don’t stress about not finding something. You may have a degree, you may not but find something you enjoy and that’s what is important because most people in there twenties find a job and that’s the job they have for the next fourth something years. Like my dad at the age of thirty got a job, and he has the same job twenty one years later, he doesn’t really like it but it is a really well paid job for not doing much, so basically make sure that everything lines up.
My third point is relationships, now I live with a girl who wanted a baby and eighteen, two years later I think she would be so happy if she had a kid now, her boyfriend probably wouldn’t as he is very get a job and be careful. Now I am a little old fashioned when it comes to kids, I think you should do the whole getting married, get a house and then have a kid and honestly think more people should be doing this. Yes a lot of people have kids in there early twenties but you are losing a lot of time where you can figure out what you want and how you want to be. Now before I get some bitch complaining about I just want a kid. You can still have that bloody kid just have some time when you are out of education when you have no strings to do something different, don’t get out of school or college or uni or whatever else and then have a kid. Yes you maybe happy and everything, the kid maybe your world but I honestly think you should be using your twenties to be selfish.
Experiment, this is my finally point. Sure you could try a gay relationship, you could try a straight one. You could try a legal high drug (I am not going to condone taking anything illegal but legal highs are just as good) change your hair colour, try and learn an instrument and most importantly fall in and out of relationships like no body knows. Everyone one of those things are important and can make you in to a better more rounded person, so don’t just get out of school and grab the first thing you see look around and see what the world has to offer you, and make sure you have fun because after all your twenties create the person you are, and you would rather be positive than negative.

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?

A Review of Bravissimo

Just going to add something a little happy on here because I am trying to work about politics but I am just going around in a circle so I am going to take this from my old blog and put it on here.

So a review on the bravissimo swimwear. Also, a great excuse to show off my body because let’s be quite honest I have a good body for someone who doesn’t work out. When I got to about 14 my boobs just suddenly got bigger but I didn’t gain any weight. I think I went up four cup sizes in a year. Although my band size (26) doesn’t actually exist in most swim wear or bras this brand does however make slightly tighter band sizes which fit me perfectly (it does change on the style as some are a little loose) so since there I’ve struggled to find pretty and big bras. My mum was told about this brand a fair few years ago as I have seemed to inherit her big boobs, so after failing to find my size on yet another shopping trip my mum told me to try this brand. Most of my bras are under £20 as I get them in the sale and well my boobs are still growing so do not want to spend more than that on something very few people see. This was swimwear I brought last year, mix and match another thing I like about this brand you don’t have to by the set if you don’t want to. Your bottoms may still fit you, but the top might not and vice verse. They are comfortable, stylish and fit well. The one thing I will say is some brands fit certain boobs shapes better than others but that’s more of a guess thing, they do have a return policy so always worth a look before you buy anything. If you find a brand that fit well stick to it changes of coming across a bra that doesn’t fit well is slim. This website also have there own sizing chart which you should follow before buying one. 90% of people wear the wrong size. I spent much of my life wearing a band 32 which was far too big for me. They have the most accurate sizing guide I’ve come across, worth the look. I give this brand a 4.5/5

Update

I understand that my blog is a little all over the place, so I’m going to try and straight it out, first off I am going to try and poet between two and three times a week, and I aim to post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Monday’s will be a beauty posts, about my hair, or beauty products I use, this will includes things like how to take the best selfies and how to find the best lighting and so on, will also include tips about my Instagram account which is approaching fifty thousand followers (RosalynBurgess) it also may have information about new workout programs that I am trying, basically about anything that has an impact product wise on my life. Wednesday I will be doing reviews, this won’t be done every week as some weeks I’m a little busy, to start with it probably be things which have been out for a while but I adore. Finally Fridays will be more lifestyle posts, such as what’s going on with my life and so on, I am currently writing a book at the moment so may post a few chapters.

Thank you for reading, hope you have a wonderful day, and to end this little post I would like to say being proud of your body doesn’t make you a slut, here is me and I love who I am.

Here’s me being me, and very vain.

Paper is evil.

Okay, this is going to sound dramatic but it’s kinda funny. See I’ve just got back from Cardiff from visiting my brother, for his birthday. He made a comment about the state of my arms and wrist, wondering if I had been in a serious fall. I hadn’t. I would love to tell you a story how I fell from a ladder while trying to save a cat, or that i nearly got mugged but managed to scratch the guy and run off, no my cuts and bruises all come from working in an office.

I am on the clumsy side, so this doesn’t help. I have a dent in my knee which has come about from walking into the same table on a daily basis. Laugh if you wish. In the last week I’ve been up and down a ladder a lot, and honestly I’m surprised I have nothing more than a couple of bruises.

I’ve been typing up invoices, sorting through expenses and filing a lot of paper, like a lot. This has causes my hand to be plastered up, covered in blood and well has made me feel like my hands have been through a war zone.

Now honestly let’s hope it makes my hands tougher, but for the time being, paper is evil.

Censorship on Social Media

For those who have been living under a rock for the past few days you would have none that some things are happening which are a little odd. Now this whole post is inspired by Paul Joseph Watson who is probably my favourite person at the moment, although I don’t agree with him completly, that would be impossible. He does however speak a lot of things I agree with and his articles are being sensored on Facebook.

To me censorship is nothing more than a step in the direction of a dictationship. That being said the internet is already censored but it is censored in the right way. For those who don’t know you don’t have access to most of the internet. Parts which you don’t see are things like buying people, drugs, weponds online as well as hiring people to kill people and so on, all the stuff you don’t exactly want to randomly come across so I think that is a perfectlyfine.

Now yesterday I came across a tweet which said something like ‘I had it explained to me’ the tweet which this was referred to was hidden and it said ‘an intellectual ideologist’.  Which was referred to as Trump. Now to me that seems a little weird. Everyone has there own ideology, because it is the set of conscious and unconisous ideas which you have that make up your beliefs, goals, expectation and motivation. They make you who are you and twitter censored that phase. To me that seems as if Twitter wants to parrot everyone, wants everyone to have the same ideas, the same beliefs, the same goals and the same motivation.

Then there is a matter of Donald Trump’s account. Now some of the people I follow have nearly a million followers on Twitter, they often reply to his tweets and they tend to get a lot of respons, but isn’t funny that all the top replies on Donald’s account are all negative? I know a lot of people don’t like him but come on!

There has also be reports of people getting locked out of their accounts for using hashtags such as #PizzGate with also the theory that twitter is not letting the words ObamaGate trend from now on.

And there is also proof if them deleting likes.

Now I wouldn’t mind this so much if it as far and it was not just the right being censored, but at lass we are being punished for supporting the president
