Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Those of you who know me know that I read Harry Potter books to distraction. I am a superfan. So of course, I'm excited to go see this on Friday the 13th…

…Even though I already suspect I will hate it.

Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix

We already had an imaginary blog post a short while back about my perceived inaccuracies with the film… and that was just from watching the trailer. I just know the books so well, I hate when they make lame-o Hollywood decisions that negatively impact the film. Now, just looking at the poster, I'm annoyed again.

  • All I see are Hermione's boobs. Is it just me, or is that what you see too, when you look at this poster? Who dressed her in that sweater?? There are no boobs at Hogwarts!
  • There are no sweaters at Hogwarts. There are no hoodies either, for that matter. The students wear robes. Black robes. What's the problem with that? Should make costuming easier. They're wizards, not hipsters. Sheesh.
  • I have no idea who the person behind Ron is. I've read this book more times than I'll admit, and yet I don't know who is second from the left on the movie poster. I'm not even sure if that's a male or female person. I find this most alarming of all. Can someone help me out??!?

Anyhow, I'm still going to see it on Friday and I still can't wait!!! Even though I know I will want to endlessly debate what was wrong with it afterward…
