I’m glad to get this one finished and out of the way. It’s my June 1 book review for TheOneRing.net, and it was deceptively complex to do.

Cracked.com has a great little duel between The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter that’s worth checking out. (Although Samwise’s last name is spelled incorrectly, not to mention Saruman’s first… er, only name is too.)

Deathly Hallows Part 2

I saw the new Harry Potter film yesterday. It wasn’t as good as the first part, and it wasn’t nearly as good as the book. I still think it would have been better to do Deathly Hallows as one fast paced, slick film with less characters. As is, the filmmakers seemed to have run into the trouble of trying to get all the details into the film but not being able to pay them off. (For example, the first part has a long introduction of the three Hallows, but in Part 2 one of them is ignored completely while another is barely touched upon.)

Nonetheless, I didn’t think Part 2 was the worst film in the Harry Potter series – just not the best. And as a series, the movies are fantastic.

I saw the seventh Harry Potter film (along with a few other people, judging by its $125 million weekend), and I loved every minute of it. But before I get into why I liked it, let me go off on a rant:

The Hobbit to Be Filmed in England?

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 16:48

The media is full of reports today that The Hobbit film production could shoot somewhere other than New Zealand due to labor issues. Here’s the story.

According to reports, Warner Brothers has been eyeing up the Harry Potter studio Pinewood, (one of the largest, busiest studios in the United Kingdom) as a potential location for The Hobbit.

A spokesman from Wingnut films says: “New Zealand is Middle-earth and we’re still fighting to keep it that way, but it seems we’re fighting a losing battle! Warner’s are doing what they can to keep the film here too, but with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake, they need to take steps to protect their investment.”

“Next week Warners are coming down to New Zealand to make arrangements to move the production offshore,” Peter Jackson’s production company said. “It appears we cannot make films in our own country even when substantial financing is available.”

No 3-D for Deathly Hallows Part 1

Monday, October 11, 2010 13:00

The Harry Potter film franchise began well before the 3-D craze, and “Deathly Hallows Part 1” was filmed in 2-D. So they were working like crazy on a conversion, but with the November 19 release date coming up quickly, they have abandoned the effort. Warner Brothers released the following statement:
