Why Harry Potter VII isn’t Harry Potter anymore

I never considered myself a fan of the Harry Potter series and books, I’m not into magic at all and I didn’t play all the Harry Potter games. And here I am, talking about the latest Harry Potter movie which I had the chance to see today.

You probably wonder what’s with the title…well did you see Deathly Hallows? If you didn’t just hurry up and hit the cinema. If you did see it, read carefully. You could end up having the same ideas as me.

First of all, if a story is told in more than one movie, here intervenes the inevitable character evolution.

You just have to realize that everything about these characters has changed, from heroes to villains and backwards.

And it’s not only the thing that they’ve grown up and are more sensitive to the surrounding world. Friendships are meant to last but they can be unstable when doubt and other effects of the dark side come into play. Especially when a girl is involved [spoiler – the case of Harry and Ron for example].

Why Harry Potter ain’t Harry Potter no more? Well the answer is quite simple. The previous movies didn’t offer the audience a big percentage of dramatism like this one did.

And I’m not referring only to the death of some characters but also to the struggle of them as a whole in order to keep Voldemort and his minions away. From pain and suffering you shall receive eternal gratitude.

It may be a fantasy tale but it is close to our reality…[the scene when Harry and Hermione are left alone after Ron decides to leave the group having his mind darkened – Harry tries to bring a little joy into Hermione’s mind by inviting her to dance – I’ve seen that many times and I understood that even in shady times you can catch a glimpse of the sunshine].

So, with so much changed elements you can’t say this movie ain’t good – it’s probably better than the previous three. And the whole story of the Deathly Hallows is a good one. Besides that we must thank the director, David Yates for creating a masterpiece.

Alter presents: Dizzy

Figure expos seem to bring out for fans all that is best when talking to PVC depictions of anime/game characters.

Recently there’s been made public the newest sculpture of Dizzy [from the Guilty Gears series and with a special apparition in the Queen’s Gate artbooks collection].

And by the look of it – only one word comes into my mind right now – AMAZING.

Just look at the details – the outfit, the well-proportioned limbs and the two entities representing Good and Evil from which Dizzy gains power.

If you played Guilty Gears at least once, you probably know Dizzy can become your favorite character in just a few minutes. Speaking of which – I gotta play GGXX #Reloaded today, just for the sake of seeing Dizzy in action again 😀

Kosaka Kirino Wave Ver.

From the series “My Little Sister Cannot Be this Cute” for all moe-suckers, there’s been released the possibility of pre-ordering the figure.

Kosaka Kirino in a colorful bathing suit with interchangeable parts – well-proportioned, interesting facial expressions which stay true to the animated character and moeness all along.

The figure will hit the market in may 2011 and it can be pre-ordered on Hobby Search for 3230 yens.

Producer: Hokusho, manufactured by Wave.

Ghost in the Shell 3D Movie announced

The first Ghost in the Shell movie will receive a remake in “full 3D” that tries to gather the fans around and make them feel like stepping into a cyborg universe.

Some scenes will be changed [probably], the 3D effects will accentuate the action, will offer a new light upon the plot and the evolution of characters.

Being a fan of GITS I always wanted more and more of it. I wouldn’t mind if a new series will hit the market after this remake.

Ghost in the Shell is probably the best cyborg-oriented anime and the movie was truly a masterpiece, intensive, provocative and exciting. A 3D remake sounds promising.

The Crushing Fetish [+18]

This is not suitable for minors or the faint of heart. Contains extremely violent elements. You’ve been warned.

Jesus mane…I wish I haven’t read stuff like this. Once again I realize how fucked-up is this world – how people have serious problems and nobody takes action to stop them. This is a new concept for me too…and seriously I don’t know what to think about this shit.

There’s this thing called the crushing fetish in which [Ohh God :(] people kill animals by crushing them to death. This is an incident that took place in China where apparently there are no laws against torturing and killing animals 😐

Behind the videos that were leaked or sold or something like that – in which a female is stepping onto a little rabbit, beating it and crushing it – there’s a large group of sado-masochists who make profit from this bullshit. One explanation that was offered by an investigator is that these retards believe in the sexual ecstasy of being crushed by a female – which is a totally fucked up concept.

Through this, the base of our humanity is violated, dignity and mercy are no longer parts of our society…God didn’t create the human being to destroy other things but to protect them. I really hope these motherfuckers burn in Hell. And speaking of violating principles of morality – I don’t know what is worse – the fact of torturing animals or the fact of purchasing these materials – because the inflicted people make tons of money from this shit.

Because the identity of the culprits was revealed they tried to avoid scandal through apology letters. Get real bitch – after you exteriorize your cruelty and your incapacity of avoiding violence – you think that saying sorry will solve this thing? Fuck you then.

The crushing fetish is one of the elements that state that the end of the world should come earlier and faster. Killing dogs, rabbits and other small animals for pure pleasure and profit is the lowest way of living.

The women man – always the women. From Eve they represented evil, lust, absence of innocence. Even nowadays the young generations seem to be possessed. I’ve seen and heard a lot of things and I can only say this: I might be wrong but most of the women will always be bitches, retarded hoes that deserve to be beheaded – like those involved in this new sort of gore porn.

I feel sick about this story and I can’t delete those images from my mind now. They all laughed but this shit is so sad…

Last Seen… [update]

Well folks, it is time again to speak about what I’ve seen lately.

Anime time is out of question right now. I’ve been busy with work and getting enough sleep so I didn’t watch anime at all these few past weeks. But I made myself time to enjoy some movies and some TV episodes.

I re-watched the first season of Prison Break – cuz I was missing something related to prisons and stuff.

I had the chance to go to the movies a couple of times. I went to Unstoppable – story of a train let loose and gaining speed while being on its way to an industrial city. This train must be stopped before it derails and provokes a big catastrophe.

The second movie I saw on the big screen was The Next Three Days – drama about a woman who is imprisoned and apparently is innocent. Her husband played by Russell Crowe makes up a plan of rescuing her and living a normal life again. It was very touching.

I also saw Predators – enjoying the beautiful planet populated by these killers.

Ghetto stories was a low-budget hip-hop filled film I find rather amusing than dramatic. I appreciate the efforts but Lil Boosie, Foxx and Weebie are better on stage singing, not acting.

Probably the movie I’ve been expecting since the beginning of the year was the final part of Saw – Saw VII.

With a new set of traps, with multiple victims and a surprise from Doctor Gordon [spoiler] who was still alive and was Jigsaw’s right hand [/spoiler] the movie offered me a great time. Now the game was really over.

I also watched The Countess – the existential drama of countess Bathory. A film similar to Tarantino’s Hostel – called Train crossed my path two weeks ago.

And for the list to be completed I have to add Seven Pounds in here. Tonight Imma relax and enjoy Paranormal Activity. Til next time – take care.

Gothic Doll House

What do you see when looking at this picture? Do you see just what your eyes perceive? Only the characters and the way the room was decorated? Or you see the hidden messages under every detail?

Did you observed the facial expressions of the dolls? They inspire tranquility, a feeling transferred from a lost time and space. I enjoy this picture just because of permitting to analyze and of course visualize a moment of existence – a moment from a faded era. All this Gothic feeling is taken to another level because of the depiction of the closed, almost sealed room in which the moon shines enter.

The paintings symbolize the concentration of life – precious enough to be immortalized. The clock symbolizes the perception upon time, the more you spend enjoying something, the more its durability increases.

The dolls have a meaning related to youth, to innocence but also can be regarded as a symbol of hidden materia – unclear and unstable. Being black and white, these elements are more relevant and more consistent.

But what makes this piece of art to be pleasant is the image of the moon. The natural element spreads a direct and conclusive meaning of the picture. It refers to a static sensation – it is there, it can be seen but it can be explained properly. That is what makes this picture mystifying in a Gothic matter.
