30 Days of Harry Potter
24. Rant about Steve Kloves something
YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARD OF A HUMAN BEING.
I LOVE YOU SO FUCKING MUCH EXCEPT FOR THAT PART WHERE I HATE YOU BECAUSE YOU LEFT US WHEN WE NEEDED YOU MOST. YOU LEFT US WITH A MEDIOCRE SCREENPLAY BY A MEDIOCRE SCREENWRITER WITH A FIRST TIME DIRECTOR WHO COULD'VE USED YOUR GUIDANCE IN HANDLING THE POTTER!VERSE AND ALL ITS NUANCES.
YOU COULD HAVE CAPTURED THE ESSENCE AND MAGIC OF THIS WORLD, OF THIS PIVOTAL TIME IN OUR KIDS LIVES GRABBING IT BY THE HORNS AND TURNING IT ON ITS HEAD AND I WILL QUOTE: 'We had it all. We fucked up bigger and better than any generation that came before us! We were so beautiful!' AND YOU MADE US SUFFER THROUGH CARDIGANS AND CLUNKY DIALOG AND UNEVEN PACING AND AWKWARD (NOT THE GOOD KIND) PAUSES. WE WERE LEFT WITH A CLIFF NOTES VERSION OF A CLIFF NOTES MOVIE AND THE SOUL... THE SOUL OF THIS BOOK, THE THING THAT WOULD HAVE SERVED AS A PLATFORM FROM WHICH TO LAUNCH INTO A BIGGER, GREATER AND DEEPER CLIMAX OF OUR KIDS STORIES WAS BEREFT.
I WEEP. YOU. MAKE. ME. WEEP. FOR THE GREATNESS THAT ORDER OF THE PHOENIX COULD HAVE BEEN. THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN MC-FUCKING-G BEING A BAD. ASS. LIONESS. IN SUPPORT OF HER KIDS. 'Have a biscuit Potter.' KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDS. THE BECOMING OF THE DA. THE BAD ASSERY OF THE KIDS. ALL THE KIDS. THE DEPARTMENT OF FUCKING MYSTERIES. I WILL LAMENT FOREVER THE WAY THAT WENT DOWN. THE WAY SIRIUS WAS FELLED. THE LACK OF HERMIONE BEING FELLED. NO WONDER EMMA WANTED TO QUIT. I WOULD TOO! WHERE WAS THE EMOTION? WHERE WAS THE INSIGHT? WHERE WAS THE BOND OF FRIENDSHIP BEING FORGED AND SOLIDIFIED BEYOND THE AWESOME TRIO? WHERE WAS IT STEVE? WHERE?!
YOU LEFT US. AND I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THAT. I HOPE YOU NEVER FORGIVE YOURSELF.
...what? it said 'rant'.
