Okay. So I wrote a different “Prisoner of Azkaban” last night but I hated it. It was about the book and a summary and yadayadayada. Okay. so here’s the NEW one. This ones about the MOVIE. Much easier to blog about. ;)Th

Story Line:

Harry Potter is in between his second and third year at Hogwarts and is having troubles (what a surprise) with his aunt, uncle and cousin. He runs away when they test his last nerve. He has nowhere to go so he sits on his trunk tipped over on one side. Then the Knight bus comes and picks him up. It takes him to the Leaky Cauldron. Before he goes back to Hogwarts he overhears Mr. and Mrs. Weasley talking to each other. Mrs. Weasley saying “Harry doesn’t need to know. He’s happier when he doesn’t know.” Mr. Weasley later decides to tell Harry and tell him not to go looking for Black. Harry then goes back to Hogwarts. Okay. This is way too much detail. In a Shorter summary for the rest of it: Hermione’s schedule has like 3 classes all at 9:00 am or whatever time. BlahBlahBlah. At the end Harry, Hermione and Ron go out to the grounds and run into the Whomping Willow. They fall down this hole and end up in a mysterious place. (No Spoilers in this.) After they come out of the “mysterious place” they’re in the hospital wing. Harry and Hermione go back in time to when they were going to the Whomping Willow with a device called a Time Turner. Okay, that’s pretty much the whole movie. (Pretty much.)

Super Cool Pets:

Crookshanks (cat)

Fawkes (phoenix)

Nagini (snake)

Scabbers (rat)

Pigwidgeon (owl)

Buckbeak (hippogriff)

Aragog (acromuntula)

Okay, well that’s it. I hope you liked this. It is A LOT better than my other Prisoner of Azkaban post. Thanks for reading.

“I could be 100 years old and in my rocker but I’ll still be very proud to be part of the Harry Potter films.”

“I get sent Bibles. I have a collection of about 20 in my room. People think I need to be guided.”

Well, thanks a bunch for reading! I hope you enjoyed it. Oh, and since we’re talking about Emma Watson and she plays Hermione Granger, let me tell you something. Harry Potter is based off of a true story. My friend Harry’s story. So yeah, I was Hermione first guys. AND THE TRUTH IS OUT!!!! Thanks.

I know what you’re thinking. Two villains in two days? IT’S TOO MUCH! Well, my goal is to do one post every day until 2012. It’s probably not going to happen. But I’ll try. Okay, here we go, Tom Felton.

Tom Felton was born on September 22, 1987. He was born in Kensington, London. His birth name is Thomas Andrew Felton. He has three older brothers named Jonathan, Ashley and Chris.

Tom Felton is best known for his villain-y role in Harry Potter but has also played many different parts. Apart from the Wizarding World he’s had some experience with other roles then Draco. He was in The Disappeared in 2008, 13 Hours in 2010, Rise of the Planet of the Apes in 2011, From the Rough in 2011 and The Apparition in 2012.

Tom also works on music. He sings and is a founding owner (and talent) to Six Strings Productions which signs young musical artists that are overlooked by big name industries.

Of course, Tom also portrays the role of Draco Malfoy, a rude, ill-timed boy that DID NOT take a liking to Harry Potter. Or much to anyone but Slytherins and Death Eaters.

Fun Facts

his older brother was his chaperon for the earlier Harry Potter movies.

As a boy, he owned a pet chinchilla named Stanley.

Quotes

“So those of you that think filming is all glamour, you’re so wrong! Really, only the premieres are the glitzy bits.”

“I really tried out for the part of Harry Potter, but they ended up picking me for the part of the enemy of Harry. Actually it is really fun playing the part of the bad kid because it just has so many interesting qualities to it. And Daniel Radcliffe and I get along really well off set so it’s really fun filming.”

Well, thanks for reading my Tom Felton post. I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks Again.

Alan Rickman was born on February 21st in 1946. He was born in Hammersmith, London. His birth name is Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman. Alan has one older brother named David, one younger brother named Michael and one younger sister named Sheila.

When Alan was 8 years old, his father died. He went to Latymer Upper School on a scholarship.

Alan later went to Chelsea College of Art and Design where he studied Graphic Design. After 3 years at Chelsea College he did graduate studies. He then went and opened a business, Graphiti, with friends until his love for theatre drew him to an audition at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA.)  At the age of 26 he got a scholarship to RADA which led him to his acting career. His acting career has lasted 35 years with no sign of stopping anytime soon. He’s done theatre, television and movies and keeps going, including into directing a bit.

Alan made his first movie appearance in Die Hard in 1988 as the villain, (what a surprise) Hans Gruber. Although he’s known for playing villain roles Alan has proven himself capable of a wide-vaariety of roles with roles like the ghost, Jamie in Truly Madly Deeply in 1990 and Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility in 1995. He has also proven himself funny being in movies like Dogma and Galaxy Quest. He’s also just been an ordinary man in a crazy situation such as, Dr. Blalock in Something the Lord Made in 2004 and Alex Hughes in Snow Cake in 2006.

In 2001, Alan moved to a different kind of role. An evil wizard, Severus Snape in the movie of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Philosopher’s Stone in some places.)

Severus Snape was rude and mean to students, fellow professors and anyone that he was talking to or was anywhere near him.

Fun Facts

He was given the role of Snape only after Tim Roth backed out.

He failed his California driving test for “driving to cautiously at a green light.”

He’s the godfather of Tom Burke.

He had cello lessons for Truly Madly Deeply and while he uses his right hand a professional cellist had to sit behind Alan with his left hand underneath his armpit.

In the shot where Hans Gruber (in Die Hard) falls off the top of a building, Alan was actually dropped from a 20-foot high model onto an airbag. To get a real surprised look the stuntman dropped him at 2 instead of 3.

Quotes

“I do feel myself more in America. I can regress there, and they have roller-coaster parks.”

“I do take my work seriously and the way to do that is not to take yourself too seriously.”

So there it is, Alan Rickman. I hope you enjoyed this post and learned something new about the amazing Alan Rickman.

Ok so, Daniel Radcliffe is in this new movie called The Woman in Black. It’s about a man named Arthur Kipps. He is summoned to a small town to attend the funeral of a widow named Mrs. Alice Drablow. He soon figures out that Alice Drablow has more to her than he thought. At the funeral he sees a woman dressed in black with a pale face, watched by a group of children. After the course of a few days he experiences many different things. such as sounds and different “hauntings.” The sounds include a horse and carriage followed by a scream.

Okay, okay, okay! I’m giving too much away! If you want to know the rest of the story go see it in February 2012!!! I’m so sorry it’s not out until then!
