My Evaluation of the “Harry Potter” Books and Movies

Examples include: Backstories of different characters, especially the marauders (Sirius, James, Lupin, and Pettigrew) SPEW (Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare) Peeves the poltergeist  Sometimes, the events in the films couldContinue reading “My Evaluation of the “Harry Potter” Books and Movies”

“Harry Potter” Mystery: Do Wizards’ Brains Work Differently Than Muggles’?

Whether you’re a die-hard “Harry Potter” fan or just know a little bit about the series, like if you’re just starting to read the books or watch the films, you might notice how different wizards and witches are from muggles (non-magical people). This could be due to the International Statue of Secrecy, where magicians must hide their magic and facts about the wizarding world to muggles.

The Best Lessons from the “Mary Poppins” Movies

Whether it’s the first installment from 1964, with Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins, or the sequel from 2018 with Emily Blunt as the same titular character, both films teach valuable lessons. You probably know the plots to both films. Otherwise, you can look at my reviews of 1964’s “Mary Poppins” and/or the second movie, “MaryContinue reading “The Best Lessons from the “Mary Poppins” Movies”

Unpopular “Harry Potter” Opinion: Harry Was Not Really Safe with the Dursleys

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, this may sound odd to you. And you might disagree with me. But unlike other fans, I don’t think Harry was exactly the safest with his blood relatives, especially due to how horribly they treated him. Yes, he had to live there because of the protection that would keepContinue reading “Unpopular “Harry Potter” Opinion: Harry Was Not Really Safe with the Dursleys”

“Harry Potter” Mystery: Does J.K. Rowling Really Know What 20-Somethings Look Like?

I bet you are not surprised by my question. A lot of the adults in the “Harry Potter” universe are portrayed as much older – at least by 10 years, if not, more. The most obvious ones are Harry’s parents, Lily and James. If you have read or watched either seventh installment (part 1 inContinue reading ““Harry Potter” Mystery: Does J.K. Rowling Really Know What 20-Somethings Look Like?”
