It’s nice to see the covers laid out! It’s not how I normally see them, which is ripped and drenched with tears.
Harry Potter in the Goblet of Fire
«There will be books written about Harry, every child in our world will know his name.»
“Obviously I’ll never be in anything with the commercial success that Harry Potter has but then again neither will anyone else.”
"You disgust me," said Dumbledore, and Harry had never heard so much contempt in his voice.
File this one under, ‘Scenes I Desperately Wish Were In The Movie.’
You know, I really think that they messed up Snape’s character in the movie. Hear me out! The last movie really wanted to emphasize the fact that Snape was good. And in doing so, they added scenes and cut out scenes and…well…maybe, they cut out too much. In fact, I think that they really took away the depth of his character. The whole point of Snape is supposed to be ‘redemption’, right? Well, in order to show redemption, you need to show the negative moments. You need to! Otherwise, there is no need for redemption! Does that make sense? It’s like wanting to make Jean Valjean look good, so you cut out the part where he was in prison and stole the silver from the church. It takes away meaning from the years that he spent trying to redeem himself. The same goes for Snape. By eliminating the scenes where he’s shown in a negative light, you eliminate the need for redemption, and therefore, you eliminate a great chunk of his character. What they should have done is included this scene and then they could have shown all of the scenes whereSnape helped Harry. That way the audience can realize that, in the beginning, he could care less if Harry survived, but by the end, he did everything that he could to help/save him. And thus, you have character development and you have redemption and you are able to maintain the point of his character.

THE MAGIC BEGINS
↳ Favourite sceneHe was gone from the hall, he was locked in the coils of a creature with red eyes, so tightly bound that Harry did not know where his body ended and the creatures began: they were fused together, bound by pain, and there was no escape-
