Wait, Harry Potter!!!!

I know Harry Potter week was last week, but I just found this today and I wanted to share it with all of you. Youtube "Harry Potter and the Ten Years Later." You can watch it all at once (actually full movie length at an hour and a half long) or you can watch it in 5 to 10 min parts.

They might as well have called it "Harry Potter and the Mid-Life Crisis" because Harry is in a rut and feels like his life is too ordinary and boring, Hermione feels she's too perfect and needs to get out and make some mistakes, and Ron feel's he's too much of a screw up. It's basically a parody on the series. And it does contain the usual sex and marijuana jokes that turn me off from most parodies. But I stuck with this one because (a) it has believable characters. I understand the relationship struggles between parody!Ron and parody!Hermione. And even though the parody characters are very different from their book counterparts, they also have that strong bond between them that is prevalent in the books.The other reason I like it is because (b) it actually has a fantastic plot! I was very pleasantly surprised. It was really, really good, and believable.

So check it out, and let me know what you think! Because I have no one else to talk to about it.
