  1. The title “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Part 2” makes me laugh. Also, Linkara’s cameo was hilarious. One last thing: If the next video is about what I think it is, I actually have read the book.

  2. @00:48s Jesus, who knew rabid Snape fans had anti-armor capabilities. I’d better invest in some reactive applique kits before I go trolling them.

  3. “Expellianus”? Ouch.

  4. Linkara’s appearance made the vid.

  5. I’m a little sad we’re probably not going to be seeing Terrence for a while. Not much Potter content expected for a while. Looking forward to analysis of other adaptions.

    Ever considered looking at film adapted from real world events or do you figure there’ s usually too much opinion wrapped up in real world stuff. Also, for Hitchhiker’s Guide, will you take into account that the book is itself an adaptation?

    • I don’t think it can truly be called an “adaptation” unless it’s created put together from an outline created for something else. The only way it could see this happening is if the film were credited as based on some non-fiction writing like Malcolm X or Schindler’s List. Though even than there’s a question of whether you sign discrepancies between the contents of the book and other real-life testimony that may have influenced the film content or is it bested to focus on differences between the two works on their own.
