This entry was posted in Adventure, DVD, Videos & Movies, Epics, Family, Fantasy by Snowfoxx on

This is the fifth installment of the Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) movie franchise based on the book by the same name. In this movie, we watch as things are just getting darker and darker for our young hero. Summer is bleak and dry and very hot, too hot for Little Whinging in Surrey. This is where Dudley (Harry Melling) realizes just how hard things are for his wizarding cousin when the boys are attacked by Dementors, the black, hooded guards of Azkaban Prison that feed on everything positive from their victims, leaving them with cold sadness. As the attack happens, Harry does an Patronus spell to bring out the protector spirit that will repel the Dementors. The spell is successful, but one muggle other than Dudley sees it, but this muggle is actually a squibb, Mrs. Figg (Kathryn Hunter), Harry’s old babysitter.

Wrath of the Titans: Feel the Wrath

When they released the remake of Clash of the Titanss, I was really glad. I had seen the original movie in 1981, and even though in its own day, it was epic, I knew the remake would be far superior, just at the fact that Avatar’s Sam Worthington would be much better as Perseus than Harry Hamlin had been thirty years earlier. I was very happy with the outcome. Another thing that was lacking in the original was what brings us to Musings today, a sequel.

In this story, Perseus (Sam Worthington) has married not Princess Andromeda (Rosamunde Pike), but the demi-goddess, Io. Demi-divines are still mortal, and Io has passed on. Perseus is raising his son, Helius (John Bell) alone and irking out a living as a simple fisherman, wanting to leave the gods of Olympus behind him. Helius is his reason for just about everything now, since the boy is all he has, and he loves him dearly. In this time, since his defeat of the Kraken, people have become somewhat atheistic, and are no longer praying to the gods for pretty much of anything. The gods are aging, and losing the power, because it is worship that the fuel on which they use to survive.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Revisited

Now that the DVD and Blu-Ray editions of the film are out we have decided to come back and take a second look at what is both one of the most exciting film of the series and sometimes the most boring of the series. This film is great but it is filled with a lot of slow spots that younger viewers are not going to be able to understand. If your watching this film with younger children you will have a lot of explaining to do. On the other hand the slowness of the film is actually needed to be able to tell the story as it unfolds. It is used to show just how evil Voldemort aka Tom Riddle (Ralph Fiennes) really is and how horrid anything associated with the Dark Lord is really a bad thing to hold on to. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 lets us see just how deep the feelings for each other really are and how it can spark jealousy over the simplest and silliest of things. This is going to be a film that makes you think about what it is that you are seeing and we get to finally find out some of the family history of Harry and Riddle. They are actually distant cousins.
