Howling for Hermione

In the concluding paragraph of Evangelion 2.22 I alluded to forthcoming details about my “Blu Moon” blogs. That near future promise is now a present day reality. Today I’d like to discuss a little bit about Blu Moon, My Life On Demand, and all things Harry Potter.

First off, let’s tackle the topic of Blu Moon. This aptly-titled project relates to an MLatM adventure that began earlier this year. It’s an all but off-the-cuff evening; the foundations of which involve a special edition blu ray to watch on John’s sick Sony set-up. However, more exciting endeavors have ensued, and will continue to increase in creativity as time passes. Second, this viewing experience finds its way into the hallowed halls of Dreamland. So far the titles have been primarily cult in kind, but prepare for a sports classic soon! Lastly, these nights are up for an award all their own. The “Best Blu Moon Evening” is a Golden Road trophy I plan on progressing towards with excitement.

My Life On Demand is another Golden Road related category. Like Blu Moon it begins with some sundown solace. However, instead of popping in a top notch disc, these events utilize the benefits of digital cable. Whether I be home alone enjoying TMN, or over at JLB & Amanda’s watching an HD rental, both outings rely on Rogers services I can’t live without. Furthermore, these streaming undertakings have their own award, (e.g. “Best My Life On Demand Evening”). Last week offered a certified nominee in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

Though I’d already seen this film in theaters JL & Amanda had failed to do the same, so we quickly got to renting the remedy.

The film’s creative cues have already been covered in a previous MLatM, so for this round I would like to highlight its cultural impact. Harry Potter’s influence on the world is beyond debate. Not only is it the West’s latest take on wizardry, it’s also captured the attention of nations beyond our borders. I remember back when I was living in Uganda my South African roommate raved about Harry Potter. At that point I hadn’t read any of the books myself, but I knew what I thought was Brit’s-only was everything but.

Harry Potter has something for everyone. It is the only eight-part movie narrative I can think of, and in knowing the films will soon end I’m brought back to memories of Deathly Hallows hitting bookshelves. We all eagerly anticipate the finale, but it’s going to be a sad day when it does. That said, God bless David Yates for doing it in style. The film in discussion is the best in the series, and all signs point to its sequel surpassing it. In a few months my Hermoine will make her final bow, but for now I only anticipate her curtsy… like closing curtains on an important era in my life at the movies.

    There is something about an HP movie that everyone can appreciate. I fully agree with you on that. I actually love watching a nice High-Quality Harry Potter film on Blu-Ray. Top shelf Mr. Godfrey. Top Shelf.
