    I was the Bum cosplayer that showed up at 3:00!

    I've been a lurker on the site for about 2 years, but I never got around to making an account. I knew I had to after this.

    Daisho Con 2010 was the greatest con I've ever been to in my life. I got to be Doug for about a second. Doug and Lewis Both signed my styrofoam cup.

    Lucky, I wish I were there >:

    Also, I haven't seen this movie, nor do I intend to. From what I noticed, each movie is worse than the book, and with how bad the 7th book was, I'm not going to risk it.

    "How bad the seventh book was..."
    Kindly take a long walk off a short pier, the seventh book was awesome. In my opinion this was the first movie done PERFECTLY, seriously besides the beginning they did every scene JUST right.
  • link77  - Yea

    Well said. I thought this movie was just epic and awesome!!
  • Dwane
    Awesome? The seventh book had its good parts, but it kind of dragged in the middle: action, camping, action, camping, drama, camping, so on so forth. That said, I liked the movie, though it may be difficult to follow for those who haven't read the book.

    They missed out huge chunks of exposition and Dumbledore's backstory... which was the best bit of the entire book!

    I mean, essentially the movie got the feel and atmosphere of the book really well, but if they only make a Part 2 (which I believe is what they're going for) they will either be cramming way too much story into a crowded movie, or they will leave out important bits and pieces.

    Honestly though I can't fault the books. Ever since Twilight came out, Harry Potter reads like a Pulitzer Prize in comparison.

    ... I will resist the urge to rant about Stephanie Meyer. I will resist the urge to rant. I will resist the urge to rant...

    ...

    ... GODFUCKINGDAMNITMEYERSUCK S! SHE HAS DESTROYED TEENAGE LITERATURE FOR YEARS TO COME AND HAS PAINTED THE MOST PATHETIC AND SELF-SERVING EXCUSE FOR A NOVEL I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE, AND HAS VIOLATED LITERATURE ITSELF SO HORRIBLY THAT THE ENTIRE MEDIUM WILL NEED PSYCHIATRIC THERAPY FOR AT LEAST HALF A CENTURY TO GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!


    Okay, okay I'm done. Sorry.

    I feel like the first half of the movie was rushed.They tried to get through the scenes as fast as possible and glossed over and in some parts completely disregarded character development,relationships and the drama.The second half however was great!I cried at the ending.Dobby,NNNNNOOOOOOO ! :(

    Get stone drunk or high. That way all you see is the pretty landscape porn and you miss everything else.

    Worked for me.
  • Felixader  - I kinda agree
    avatar
    I agree in a way that i found the Last book to be really lacking.

    But here comes a twist: I think the movie is FRICKING awesome!

    That is the first time for me that the Movie version of a Story is better than the Book.

    Best Bum Review yet~
  • CrazyChris576
    avatar
    Agreed. Although they screwed up at the end lol. It's Chester A. Bum and Lester B. Bum, not Chester and Lester A. Bum.

    COOL!

    I mean, HOORAY!!!
  • CellSeam

    Ha Ha, 4kids.

    That was great.
  • Quantum Wolf
    avatar
    I wonder if Chester was able to find Anna and May this time.

    Seriously though, Deathly Hallows was great. But that dance scene certainly qualifies as a Big Lipped Alligator Moment. I wonder if Ron ever asked Hermaphradorf about it?

    Glad Lester was able to join in on the fun.
  • neocarleen
    avatar
    It wasn't romantic or anything, they just danced to lighten the mood, because Hermione was really depressed.
  • Adam314-  - Great Review.
    Had me in stitches throughout the whole thing.
  • VoidedFilms
    avatar
    OMG THIS IS THE GREATEST BUM REVIEW I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!!

    Two things that make this perfect.

    1. Chester teaming up with Lester :D
    2. Junior Warrant Officer Schrödinger :O

    Hurray!
  • elelgood90
    That was friggin awesome. Sadly, I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm seeing it on Saturday with my friend. I'm really excited.

    One of the funniest Bum review yet. You gotta do this more often.
  • JitteryJordan
    avatar
    Doug, it's Deathly Hallows, not Deathly Hollows
  • Fangor
    Seriously, you're nitpicking The Bum?
    Think about that for a second...
    Oh well, at least he got Hermafrodities name right...
  • sfga360
    avatar
    Simply awesome...


    Oh ya, did I mention RUN!!! AAAAAAAAAAHH!!!!
  • Tohru_Rokuno

    Oh my god! This is the greatest Bum Review I've ever seen in my life!
  • greenghost
    This was awesome!Too freakin hilarious!
  • Lossthief
    avatar
    you thought this one needed to lighten up? JUST WAIT TILL THE NEXT ONE.
  • e33laf
    This review pretty much had me crying with laughter the entire time XD
    I'm not even into anime, but I would gone to the con just to see this live.

    As for the darker tone, you have to remember that Deathly Hallows takes place during a full out war, so it's perfectly understandable that the film would present a very dark and unsettling atmosphere. It fits with the story.
  • Sheik  - Plus...
    That's the reason they had lighter moments in the film, because it needed a little laughter ^_^

    Personally, I enjoyed both the movie and this review. :D

    Maybe you could do Live reviews more often~? C:

  • IchiGojita

  • Zaheela
    avatar
    Thanks to this review, i found out how much your throat hurts when stiffling gawfaws. Best-review-evar, made especially good with how much the crowd gets into the whole thing.
  • beans8604
    avatar
    I was waiting for this review lol. Accurate summary of the movie as well, and i wish they had scraped the dance scene for some more time at the burrow.
  • theREALcoconut
    Zomg that was the cutest Ren ever!
  • Suiseiseki  - This was the greatest con of my life!
    avatar
    I was the Junior Warrant Officer Schrodinger btw. God it makes me feel so awesome and so much like an attention whore at the same time that somebody commented on me.

    This was really fun to film, glad i could help make this even more awesomer.

    Oh yah afterwards chester forgot his change again... I grabbed it (after he took out the bills, darn)
  • Amaretta
    avatar
    *poof*Forgot my change!*poof*

  • elektro
    avatar
    That was awesome. I was there when this was going on, but sadly I wasn't aware this was happening until after it was done filming.

    P.S. My friend is the one playing Ron Weasley.
  • tsumirechan
    avatar
    "Old-lady," here. It was lovely meeting him. Lmao, I remember he even put his arm around me when we were moving to the second location and he was all, "let's go, dear." XD

    The Scout cosplayer was my friend. He rocks.

  • Seraphem
    OH MY GOD!!! THIS WAS THE GREATEST BUM REVIEW I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!!!


    Really, this was just hilarious, to bad the movies screwed Dolby over so much, sure he was kinda annoying in the books too, but at least he was around enough that you felt sorry about him dying and not thinking...huh that annoying thing from 5 movies ago is still around? Oh not anymore.
  • NCscritic
    you Bums do realize it's called "part 1" for a reason, right? it ain't done yet.

    and whaddia mean, everyone hated Dobby? I've never met any one who hated Dobby. I mean, I guess he could be kinda annoying at times, but who would you rather have with you; Dobby, or Jar Jar Binks? yeah, that's what I thought. give me the British accented servant any day.
  • uknownada
    Please don't tell me you actually took the Bum seriously...
  • NCscritic
    Please don't tell me you actually took ME seriously. I was playing along with the Bums. I know they were joking, I was just joining in with them.
  • kshade
    avatar
    McNitpick, is that you?
  • NCscritic
    nope. although I guess it was worded in an obnoxious sort of way, wasn't it? My bad.
  • ph8enix
    avatar
    I hated Dobby. Jarjar Binks of the HP franchise...
    I'm glad he had almost no screentime.
  • NCscritic
    I'm guessing you didn't read the books then?
  • Spaniel1
    avatar
    Dobby was in Books 4, 5, and 6. Besides I liked Dobby. I was sad when they killed him in the book.
  • veddabredda
    avatar
    I do believe that was the joke.

    I do agree with your second statement though. I don't know anyone who hates Dobby.
  • The Shamster
    avatar
    I liked dobby. He had that aura about him that you just can't help but love his kind politeness.
