The shit that is HP6

I would fall short of words to explain this dumb, crap, numbf*** movie. For over 2.5 hours that the movie lasted, I felt like I was strapped on to a chair and was being tortured in the most unfathomable fashion. The first sequence of the deatheaters gobling up a bridge provided excellent visuals and then the movie went spiralling down. It seemed more like those teenage high school flicks – I-love-my-best-friend-but-he-is-a-moron-who-loves-another-girl types. And let me tell you (at the risk of being labeled a pedophile), the girls in the movie weren’t even hot (I aint talking about MEGAN hot !!). The plot was so so so so slow that a snail sleepwalking would be faster than it. Characters were poorly written – Ginny acts like this “Hormoned” puberty teenager switching her boyfriends, Hermione is the damsel in distress, Ron carried the same “I-am-dazed” expression throughout the movie, Draco – I thought the book built his character well enough, but he is this absolutely wasted guy with 10 dialogues of 5 words each and surprisingly 9 out of the 10 scenes he appears are his tweaking the vanishing cabinet or walking through corridors.

What strikes me more is that, though the popular public sentiment (What popular, make it unanimous) is that the movie sucks, Stud critics like Rajeev Masand and some arbit punk head at rediff feel this is a 4/5 star movie. LOL !! Their argument – It does proper justice to the book !! Hahahaha …… I aint a potter fan, and I barely remember anything from the book. I am more of a movies guy when it comes to movies vs books. And believe me if you feel bored/tortured/like running away from the movie/like sleeping in the movie – The movie is a bummer irrespective of whether its based on a novel, a real life experience or some jack shit incident.

The only silver lining are a few witty dialogues which the actors couldnt pull off well enough. The crowd in the theatre did have a few funny moments. However I was happy with the way Dumbledore’s character was given more prominence – given his “I am in this movie too” role in the past editions.

All in all, a sunday morning wasted. Warner bros – I want my money back !!
