I think it was Alex that said that thing at the end - he's listed as cast but I didn't see him anywhere on camera.

Great video this week; again, full of minor nuances that made it awesome. I especially liked the part where they put on their scarves. Hehe, Matt's in Hufflepuff - the sorting hat never lies!

P.S. I it a throwdown? Do Harry, Hermoine, and Ron have a throwdown?

I have not read a single one. I just like to ruin it for everyone. I'm a dick. I'll admit that. I've already made a shirt that says who dies on what page. I'm going to wear it around the mall.

I'd say there are lots of big rocks. But not one in and of itself. I like big kid books. Like the Foundation series, Jack of Shadows, Lord of the Rings, etc.

The movies can no longer be enjoyable. Not after they turned around the style post three. Azkaban was the epicentre of Harry Potter Film greatness.


Well they can be somewhat enjoyable. I mean when watched the 5th movie, I thought it was fairly ok. Since I didn't know what parts they skipped, screwed up, or made me wish I could've made the movie.

Good observation, I was to lazy to even look at the credits. Your probably right, and it does sound like Alex saying it.

Did Guillermo Del Toro direct this video? No? Well, hmm.

Still funny, though whether they're students at Hogwarts or fans dressed up to stand in line is left up in the air until way too far in the joke.

Would it be in poor taste for me to tell you to "eat shit and die"? I don't really know what passes on these boards, being new to them and all. I've never read any of the books or seen any of the movies, I still thought it was pretty funny.

Yeah, that probably would be in poor taste, Ben.
We don't like to look down on people who don't like a given video, or else everyone gets too afraid to give us any negative feedback.

Having said that, I think "wasted" is harsh, considering how many people are enjoying it.
A waste would be a complete and total failure.

Why exactly didn't you like it, Sevey? I'd like to know.

Oh, sorry. I'll make sure not to do that then, I was just wondering. I know I definitely wouldn't even think of offering that sort of answer to any sort of post that gave constructive criticism, that would be mean.

..Wait, what?


What just happened?

What did I see?

What the fuck?




(It was decent, but nothing truly spectacular. Some funny parts, but didn't feel it was overall one of your best. Just didn't spark my laughter.



PS: Was that really confusing, or am I on crack?)

The thought of Hogwarts students actually buying the books to find out what happened in their own world is amusing. And somewhat disturbing.

It's videos like this one that make me look forward to what will come from the LRR crew in the future. While I didn't find it very funny (note I've never read any of the books either), I really loved the video. It shows how much you have improved with great writing, acting, and the filming is much better too. It all is a huge gain in producing professional quality videos from where you were a short time ago.

Makes me hope for a comedy/drama to come some time in the future, in either episode form, or perhaps a feature length DVD. Maybe thats too much too soon for now.

I think the video definitely took off when the characters started putting on scarves, but which meeting room were they in? I thought the various towers' common rooms were off-limits to other tower members.

And Cake, I'm suddenly glad I live in Colorado Springs, not Aurora. I threw a fit when one of my friends mentioned that you play as the Arbiter in Halo 2.

Well I thought this was a great video, and I don't really even follow the books (I see the movies, because they involve less reading).

But after being sorted for the Three Broomsticks at PSU, I am a proud Hufflepuff, and I have three words for you haters, both of my house and my kind.
    1) BITE
    2) IT
    3) SIDEWAYS

Matt isn't a nerd because he knows the colors. Any dillweed with a computer and a search engine can look that stuff up. So don't be hatin.

I do not get the Halo 2 reference. I played through it once. With a friend. It was many years ago.
