Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 - Review from a HarryPotter n00b


I've never read the books, way too long. I've only seen three Harry Potter movies: the first, part one, and now part two. But after seeing these three movies, I don't think I've missed out on much. I'm sure someone would disagree with me, but I'm just not that interested in the series. Besides, I can just assume that something evil happened, maybe someone died and Harry saved the day. I will admit that because I haven't seen the other movies, I don't really know the characters that well, so I'm not sure how they are supposed to act. In the first part, I didn't know if Ron's jealousy of Harry leading the way was a recurring event. But nonetheless it was a good movie. Some scenes felt a little stretched out, but I hear it's just like the book.

In part two, I felt they did a good job of not going through a "previously on Harry Potter" montage because I'm almost certain everyone watching the movie saw the last one, unless there are the book readers who want to see the last movie ever. So the movie takes place from what I guess is Hogwarts being taken over by evil or something along the lines of that. I didn't really understand, but I never read or saw anything past the first movie. So Harry must kill Voldemort in a series of timed events otherwise Voldemort will kill him.

In a n00b's opinion of the film, I didn't understand parts of the movie, so I found it quite boring. Don't get me wrong, it's action packed, but I just couldn't find myself to enjoy it had I seen the other movies. But to the book readers, because you get the full 2 hours, you get a better representation of the book. So if you haven't already seen the movie, go check it out.

Piratz Tavern has Closed, and I'm Glad

If you've ever seen the show Bar Rescue, you know that in most episodes, bar owners are decently pleased with the renovations that happen at the end of the episode. Understandably, some of the owners aren't pleased because they loved the bar they had, they just wanted it to be successful. To those owners who quietly took down the updates, or even kept them, that's cool. It's your business, do what you gotta do. One episode in particular did more than just some updates, however.

In the episode, a pirate bar in a corporate part of town in a state without an ocean called for help to Jon Taffer. Apparently, a bar with a pirate theme and a complete staff of costumed pirates in a state not known for pirates doesn't work very well, and the owner was over $900,000 in debt. Taffer found the usual mistakes: bland drinks, bad food, and cocky owners. When Taffer suggested to move away from a pirate theme to the owners and bartenders, it was like he suggested they cut their arm…

2013 Jeep Patriot Review

If what you're looking for in a vehicle is the most patriotic sounding car, look no further than the Jeep Patriot. Or an American Motors Eagle. Oh, if I could've been a car buyer in the '80s, the Eagle would've been my ride. And honestly, they have a lot in common: they're both car-based crossovers designed to give 4WD when you need it. The only thing the Patriot is missing are those sweet door handles and the gigantic windows. And wood paneling.

The Jeep Patriot was designed to be a baby Liberty/Wrangler for those who want better fuel economy in an SUV with a Jeep logo on it. In 2007 when the Patriot was released, there was no Renegade, or Cherokee to provide for a fuel efficient alternative, your other choices were the Compass, which looks like a baby Grand Cherokee, the tank Liberty, and the family-sized Grand Cherokee and Commander. Now that the Jeep lineup has the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee, where does the Patriot fit in? Well, it won't for long, beca…

Jeep Patriot Base Model Questions

I have a 2013 Jeep Patriot Sport. The "sport" is Jeep's nice way of saying the buyer didn't pay a lot for this car, at least compared to what they could've paid. My particular Patriot has no power windows, locks, and mirrors. However, it does have:

Air conditioningLight up cup holders4WDSpeed sensitive intermittent windshield wipersThis thing that stops the car from rolling backwards when on a hill, which is nice with the manual transmissionA flashlight in the ceilingThe visors extendDecent four-door speakers Now, I'm not complaining, I bought the car because I like it a lot, I just thought it was funny how much comes standard, or can be optioned in besides power convenience.
