Pottermore


Alright so the amazing J.K. Rowling announced that she is giving the Harry Potter fans a safe site to be a fan. It’s to be kid friendly so all the pervs that happen to happen upon this don’t be PERVS! Anyway, this site can be found at http://www.pottermore.com and she announced it on Youtube. So if you search for an account under J.K. Rowling you will probably find the video but if you don’t want to take FOREVER! to find it you can just find the link on http://www.mugglenet.com .

Now if you are just checking this out you might not know that I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and I am SO EXCITED for this. It comes out as a fully functional site in October. And I really hope that I don’t get annoying comments bashing Harry Potter but feel free to discus this and voice your opinion. Especially if you are as excited for this as I am. Well have fun Potterheads and may Harry Potter live in your hearts for forever.

The Hunger Games


The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Okay so this is not meant to offend Suzanne Collins, but rather tear apart whoever invented the tense that she was writing in. I greatly dislike this tense, it’s like some imperfect present tense that just makes the book seem stiff and primative. It doesn’t seem like a person would think this way and it doesn’t seem all that realistic. It feels like a huge list of events and emotions and doesn’t seem to flow correctly. Now this could just be my preference and a wildly opinionated thing but I simply didn’t like it.

And then you have the characters. Because this book was from Katniss’s point of view and because of what I’ve already said about the tense making it seem unhuman, you can probably guess that I didn’t much like her. In my opinion she was a poor compilation of Bella from Twilight and Daine from Wild Magic. Other than that Peeta was just stupid and oblivious… That’s just about all I can say with out being horrific. The only two characters I actually liked were Haymitch and possibly Gale.

The only redeeming thing has to be the concept. It was a very good concept but just not well executed.

X-Men: First Class


One more page in the story of the X-Men

So this movie goes back in time to the Cold War era, and even farther than that, to take you back in time to see the horrific conditions that the amazing characters had to live through. The effects and screen writing of this movie were absolutely amazing! So many things were just right and yet others were probably changed. I am definitely a fan of this movie, though having never read the comic books I suppose I’m not the one you should be asking. However, I have watch every single movie, as they came out, and have loved every one of them.

Their cast was perfect! The guy who played Mr. Thomas in Narnia as Professor X, the guy who played Jane Eyre’s employer as Magneto, and so many more awesome stars. I would completely suggest going to see it. So if you have time on your weekends or during the week, you should totally go see it.
