I think it’s time.

It’s been a while, right? I’m sure you’ve all read the latest Harry Potter book, right? I mean, all of you who…y’know…read the Harry Potter books.

So you won’t mind me finally posting this, right?

I have to confess, I absolutely love step-by-step comedic evaluations of books, movies, etc. Thus, even though I’ve never read any Harry Potter book, I still laughed when I read this page-by-page synopsis of the Deathly Hollow.

“Page 226: Hermione’s exclamation of shock: “Merlin’s pants!” I mention this without comment. Consider it a sorbet, to cleanse the palate.”

Yes. Yes.

However, a lot of people really like the book, so any teasing, even if well-meant just for comedy, can rub them the wrong way. Don’t feel left out: here is another step-by-step break-down of something that really is horrible, no matter who you are or what you like. The Ralph Bakshi Lord of the Rings film. This one’s illustrated!

If you’ve never seen it, lucky you.

“18. How To Recognize An Elf.
– Sappy pseudo-cheerful woodland Elf-music plays whenever they appear.
– They have eyes like Bambi.
– They’re all exposed three F-stops too bright.”

    Yep. That pretty much sums up the book, although I don’t agree with the C grade at the end…

    Harry Potter…? Harry Potter? I don’t believe I’ve ever before heard of this fellow.

    (Believe or not, I have never seen any of the Potter movies or read any of the books. This surely puts me in rare company!)

    Ralph Bakshi’s version of the Lord of the Rings is better than Peter Jackson’s. At least it follows the book better.
