Was Ginny Rowling's self-insert?
no, I think JKR always said she was Hermione
Who cares? Harry Potter was easily one of the dullest franchise in the history of movie franchises. Each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the seriesüf only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.
Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody?just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but itüfs certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.
>a-at least the books are g-g-good though
The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."
I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King
you can tell she's not even kissing him.
Harry could have fucked any non slytherin girl in hogwarts just by saying hello but was way too beta
Shoul have made movies about his parents instead, they were way more interesting
>mfw her friend looks better than her
Your waifu grew up to look like shit m8, as did the chick who played Ginny, but still, both options are shit, but only one gives you the satisfaction of knowing you're fucking your best friend's sister.
Harry got with her not because of her but because of her family. Mr and mrs weasley are the closest things to parents he has. He could only take that fantasy so far by experimenting with ron every night in those bunks. So he turned his attention to little sister. Who literally wet her seat at the mention of his name. Easy in. Just bat his eyelashes and she would on him in a flash giving him a handy in the common room. So he took the easy option that lived to please him and claimed a family in the process
>all these complaints and questions
>not just ignoring anything after book 5
Harry turned into such a cuck. He even named his firstborn child a stupid sounding hyphenated name of two of the three men responsible for making his life hell, one of whom would have cucked his father had he'd had the chance. Not to mention Harry became useless while his parents and Snape and Voldemort were creating their own really advanced magic at his age and even becoming immortal.
You weren't kidding
>Imagine being Dean Thomas in that scene and having to be all like "damn, Bonnie Wright, you fuckin' fine, all sexy with your tight body and horrific androgynous monster face. I would totally have sex with you, both my character and the real me."
like you wouldn't date them
I would date either of them in a heartbeat if I'm perfectly honest
>not getting together with Fleur
>or pre-GoF Pansy
>or even that Romilda chick that was so crazy for his dick she wanted to date-rape him
He could have waited a few years after Hogwarts to have a shot at Gabrielle, Fleur's little sister.
>Fleur was too old for Harry
3 years older is too old?
>not knowing this old ass pasta
"Aren't you glad you didn't stay with Cho Chang, dear husband?"
No one is hairier than best Potterfu Bellatrix.
Too bad HBC is shaved in the movie, I think beastly hairy pits would fit the character very well.
Luna just needs to lose weight and get a nose job...right?
She doesn't look so bad now. Late last year these were, those images were a few years back.
She doesn't do glam very well.
luna drank from the furry cup.
ofc ginny self inserts.
To be honest, if they knew Dan was going to be that short as an adult they probably wouldn't have cast him either. Emma is too hot for Hermione but they could have uglied her up if they wanted to so that's on them. Rupert Grint is probably the best cast one, and the guy who plays Neville un-JUSTed himself at the just the right time.
Harry was always a Manlet though.
I may be wrong, but while it does mention he grows a bit (to avoid him being an utter midget), I don't recall him ever being described as anything but short and slight
>he guy who plays Neville un-JUSTed himself at the just the right time.
No, they just stopped making him look ugly, that's about it.
He wore plastic prosthetics behind his ears to make them floppy, he wore fake teeth, had his hair greased up and he even worse a fat suit.
Nah before puberty he was a genuinely ugly kid
I'd insert myself into Ginny Wesley fur flaps if you know what I mean.
Daphne Greengrass, Pansy Parkinson and Hermione Granger.
If the opportunity arose I'd cast it on Rita Skeeter instead of Hermione.
Bellatrix, Hermoine, McGonnagal.
Pansy was a qt in the earlier films. the third actress they had, though, in HBP and DH they uglied up real bad. The actress is fine, but they got all weird with her hair and nose.
Also, Daphne Greengrass, really? She had no physical description and no lines.
I thought were were doing exclusively Hogwarts students
but since we seem to be doing any of them
I change mine to
Bella, Narcissca, and Rita
Harry Potter is the epitome of normie shite, one of those impossibly crap pieces of pop culture fads that the sheep just love to bandwagon until it snowballs into a humongous and grotesque media monster that propels it's painfully average content and talentless creators into mega wealth and unwarranted superstardom
Because they pretty much don't get mentioned. For all that people were drawn into the world of Harry Potter and the magical society it depicts, there are very few people of note. Seriously, Rowling wrote a list of 40 students who she sorted in Harry's year, and then she didn't even use most of them. The majority are names without characters, and in the later books everything of importance is done by a few names characters with very little expansion.
I mean, who are the girls in Harry's year? Hermione, Lavender, Parvati, Padma (only memorable as the twin of Parvati, who is already a barely fleshed out side character), Susan Bones and Hannah Abbot, Pansy Parkinson and Millicent Bullstrode (who apparently died or something after year 2, because she's never even mentioned again), and I think they mention another Ravenclaw girl for being an acne-riddled hamplanet. And most casual fans of the series probably wouldn't remember half of those.
He said nothing about choosing a girl from Hogwarts, he only said that you were a student at Hogwarts when you discover the secret spell.
Besides, foreign exchange French chick coming to your school and you don't do that to her? You're not even a man.
She even has an appropriate wizarding name.
How so? Doesnt do anything but whine that his name was in rhe goblet. Then proceed to suck so bad that he would have failed every singlr challenge if it wasnt for everyone helping him including the bad guy. If anything book four harry shows how shitty a wizard he is
Wasnt she even looking at love potions at the start of the sixth book. The same book harry suddenly realized he liked her and wanted to snog her
Tfw their kids are officially the new voldermort trio
to be fair I don't actually think she was good for the roll, she was just acting as herself
but I do love HBC so I let it pass.
It would have been better really if someone else got the part, I admit
>implying Harry couldn't have gotten with Tonks if he wanted
Shame he chose the ugly tomgirl fangirl coalburner instead.
She was in a few shots in the first two or three films, but, and I am not joking here, she got recast afterwards because she was too pretty and Rowling didn't want the mean girl (who was modeled after bullies from her youth) to be really pretty.
you mean to tell me he looks like a permanlet
despite camera tricks? Holy shit that's gotta suck, at least he's confident enough to not wear high heel shoes like RDJ
>J. K. Rowling has said that Pansy did not end up marrying Draco because Rowling always hated her: "I loathe Pansy Parkinson. I don't love Draco but I really dislike her. She's every girl who ever teased me at school. She's the Anti-Hermione. I loathe her."
>Doesnt do anything but whine that his name was in rhe goblet
To be fair, after 3 years in a row of "Powerful wizards are trying to kill me" he's probably fucking sick of being thrown into that kinda shit
>Then proceed to suck so bad that he would have failed every singlr challenge if it wasnt for everyone helping him including the bad guy
He did the best out of everyone at the first challenge, even Cedric says so
I'll give you the second one
The third he kicked ass in
>if it wasnt for everyone helping him
Fleur and Krum both got help from their headmasters, Dumbledore was the only one who didn't help. Oh, and he's fucking 14 and everyone else is 17+
>If anything book four harry shows how shitty a wizard he is
No, it doesn't. It shows that he's way above average. He may be slightly above average in academics, but when shit hits the fan he's in his element. He fucking dueled Voldemort to a draw. He broke Voldemort's imperius curse. He got crucio'd by the best in the business and didn't immediately break.
Also, the main thing that I wish was in the movies was the bit at Hogwarts where he's in the Ravenclaw common room and crucio's a death eater so fucking hard the death eater goes into a coma. Shows that Harry
1) is powerful
2) has a darker side
Does this shit really pass for style in the bong territories?
Tonks was the best girl.
Ginny was hot, but she aged like milk
lol edgy list, you effortless shit poster.
fuck off you neckbearded retard. I feel bad for you. You don't even have Tolstoy's War and Peace on there? Fuck right on off, back to /lit/ you pretentious down syndrome fuck.
Luna, First Movie Hermione and this character.
>British band dressing up like day of the dead
Weird but nice
But day of the dead is mexican iirc
They celebrate Todos Santos in spain, but it not the same thing as the mexican celebration.
But they do a lot of odd setups. Publicity and all that.
Not sure if anon doesn't get the bond reference or shitposting, the post.
>Black paint was used in the awful QoS
>>Black paint was used in the awful QoS
Yes it was Gemma Arterton who was underused as fuck.
Yep, Bond was always about hints and not showing, and also it was not the same era.
>you will never cheat at cards to get Jane Seymour's virginity
One of my favourite Bond scenes to be honest.
It was in deathly harrows
Death Eater spits in McGonagall's face, so Harry crucios him in revenge.
Though granted, they had been torturing students, so that was just the icing on the cake
Oh, one of the Carrow siblings, yeah you're right
though I'm pretty sure he does something brutal during Battle of the Astronomy Tower as well, enraged as he is at Dumbledore's death
Maybe just the legit trying to cut Snape up with Sectumsepra, but I thought more
i wanted to make a joke but it would have been childish
There is literally nothing wrong with these women and lolis
Never cared for Luna but always liked Ginny
The fact that they don't tell any of the 1st year students, particularly the muggleborn ones, that there are wizards and witches who can READ MINDS is a bit of a problem.
Were I in that situation and to have found that out later on I'd be shitting the proverbial brick, the last sanctuary of privacy and even that isn't sacred.
From context, the ministry only seems to give a fuck about wizards fucking about with muggles if it's actively damaging like a curse, or if it risks revealing them.
That would imply you could use magic to find out information, non magically blackmail the shit out of them and use the self defence clause to magic your way out of any consequences.
It would. Super tent, could arrange food, could figure out a way to use your magic to foully deflower and impregnate muggles. fun times.
She really is. Sometimes the angles don't do her justice but I would love to have fun with her.
Indeed. When she made up she looks great.
>Pretending that 99.5% of woman don't look great without makeup
Have you ever based an opinion on a desire to be different than the mainstream even if it was contrary to how you actually felt? Or is it just something you think other people (whose opinions you disagree with) do?
I suspect that rarely if ever happens, and is nothing more than an easy way to dismiss opinions you don't like or can't argue against effectively.
>you will never be just a kid again watching harry potter movies and growing up with them
It's probably the worst indictment of her as a writer, really.
The good ones are able to write about what they hate in an unbiased fashion, even if they end up bashing it anyway and vice versa for what they like. It's one thing among many that makes Terry Goodkind and Ayn Rand so fucking awful.
As other anons have said, Parkinson being attractive would make far more sense, since most teen girl bullies tend to be.
Just what kind of sick shit did these girls do to her in high school to still leave her salty after becoming a world-famous, billionaire author?
I think it was just "Friends."
Definitely autism. It's inherited, you know.
It just makes her more precious.
Pretty much destined for Slytherin.
"Wotcher, Harry. "
Yeah, it pretty much went downhill after the first two. It's bad enough they only used the pointy hats for ceremonies in those. And removed Peeves.
>while his dad was becoming an animagus and creating incredibly useful enchanted maps of Hogwarts, Harry was struggling with school standard spells
This always bugged me. Harry is a shit wizard.
>There will never be a slytherin student who isn't objectively evil while attending hogwarts
slughorn doesn't count because he had 50+ years to change
>in books wizards always dress horribly in muggle clothes, random colors or wearing wrong
>in movies purebloods have fancy suits and everyone wears muggle clothes
shitty ass wizards. Only Dumbledore had any real wizarding style.
If I was attending wizard school, you wouldn't be able to get me out of my fancy wizard robes and hat.
Reminder that Harry had such a reputation for spamming the same fucking spell that he learned when he was twelve ad nauseum that his enemies used it to instantly identify him from six different decoys.
hey come party with us, Anon
