Thread Name: BS: Deathly Hallows Part 2
Subject: RE: BS: Deathly Hallows Part 2
All part of the Messianic simplicity of the thing really. One thing I hate about JK's storytelling is that you get though a whole book to be told the story in the last few pages (not unique to JK I grant). That story is always being better than the cliche-ridden public-school jolly-broomsticks bollox we've waded through to get there. On the other hand I remember talking to a young lad once who all he wanted from a Harry Potter novel was no story at all, just a load of wizzarding stuff set in Hogwarts that he could escape into. 1,000 points to Gryfindor and let's lock those beastly Slytherins in the dungeon!

Shame David Bradley wasn't featured as Stemroach, I reckon he could have sorted Voldamort out no bother. On the plus side, I normally don't like HBC, but her Bellatrix in these last few films has been a real treat; a Steampunk icon perhaps? In the fashion sense certainly. And there's Warrick Davis getting his second HP role, but neither quite as compelling as The Leprechaun...
