Fan Film Friday: ‘Severus Snape and the Marauders’ (Harry Potter)

J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter has been enchanting fans since 1997. Over the course of 11 years, we’ve had 7 full books, 8 feature films, short stories, Pottermore and more (ha)! 2016 has been especially magical, with the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood in April, as well as the highly anticipated theatrical debut of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them  coming November 18th. Add Broad strokes Productions fan film, titled Severus Snape and the Marauders, to the list of marvelous 2016 releases that had us holding our wands up in delight!

The story kicks in with James Potter and his marauder pals Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew at the pub celebrating their graduation from Hogwarts and pondering about their futures, including the repercussions of possibly fighting against people they went to school with in the pending war. Conflict arises when Potter’s enemy, Severus Snape, walks into the bar.

This is more than the jock vs. the goth kid: Potter and Snape hate each other!

The script, coupled with what fans know from the books, show that these two men had different ideals about the world and how things should be. The only thing they have in common is that they both love Potter’s squeeze, Lily. Potter foolishly attempts to assert his dominance over Snape by “scaring” him a little. Biting words quickly escalate into a full-fledged wand-wielding row, and later, some fighting mano y mano.

One of the things I always adored about the Harry Potter universe was how Rowling managed to make the impossible seem so possible! Even in a world of magic and mystery, the characters and their problems were still relatable to the core. The same can be said for this project, which contained all the witty dialogue and thoughtful character development that one would expect from Rowling herself. The characters were fleshed out and natural, and each character was cast perfectly both in look and demeanor. I especially loved Zachary David’s comical-without-being-over-the-top portrayal of the spineless wimp Peter Pettigrew.

I was entranced by the major battle scene in the film. It was not just action packed, it was visually stunning (no pun intended)! With a brawl with moves that felt like a dance, a sweeping score that would make John Williams proud, and spells visualized via brilliant sparks of color, I could not have been more impressed.

Beautiful sets, effects, and wardrobes also made me feel enveloped by the story.

Members of Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff alike can all agree one one thing: Severus Snape and the Marauders is amazing!

I definitely recommend Severus Snape and the Marauders to you, GeekGirl World! Watch it below:

Film Review: ‘PAPA: Hemingway in Cuba’

PAPA: Hemingway in Cuba Fast Facts 
Directed by: Bob Yari
Cast: Giovanni Ribisi as Ed Myers, Joely Richardson as Mary Hemingway, Adrian Sparks as Ernest Hemingway, Minka Kelly as Debbie Hunt
Rating: R for language, sexuality, some violence and nudity
Runtime: 110 minutes
Release: April 29, 2016

YARI-PAOS-01_27x40_031816.indd

In my head, I imagine casually running into Taylor Swift, having her be completely enchanted by my quirkiness, and becoming insta-Best Friends. We’d bake cupcakes, cuddle with kittens, and go to Coachella. Well, that’s basically what happened in the movie PAPA: Hemingway in Cuba. Only, instead of me, it’s Ed Myers, a junior reporter at a Miami newspaper. And instead of TSwift, it’s the legendary American author, Ernest Hemingway. Oh, and instead of #squadgoals, it’s adventure and drama and revolution in 1950s/1960s Cuba.

The movie is based on the true experiences of writer Denne Bart Petitclerc, who penned the screenplay about his personal adventures with Hemingway in Cuba. The movie changes some of the real life details, including the name of our protagonist, but otherwise maintains historical accuracy. The opening credits include zoom-ins of newspapers whose headlines and photos give historical context to the rocky relationship between Cuba and the United States. Hemingway, an American living in Cuba, is caught in the middle. I found this to be an effective and creative way of informing the reader of the setting, without making viewers feel dumb! I also adored that the movie was actually the first Hollywood production in fifty years to be filmed in Cuba. Cuba itself felt like a character in the movie, and seeing the Cuban landscape, seas, and architecture made me feel even more engrossed in the story.

MV5BMjE5NDczNTAzOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDM2NjMwNzE@._V1_SX1024_CR0,0,1024,682_AL_More than that, the film genuinely captures the complicated friendship between the two men. I attribute this to a smart screenplay. Much like his real-life mentor, Petitclerc’s writing is succinct and concise, and the story gets straight to the point. Within minutes, we learn Myers’ father was killed, and he grew up an orphan with no patriarchal role models. Myers describes in a fan letter to Hemingway that the author’s books were like an old friend to him, there when no one else was. More than that, they inspired and guided him to be a writer. Myers is shocked when Hemingway receives the letter, calls him, and invites him to visit the Hemingway’s family home in Cuba. “Call me Papa,” the author says, “Everybody does.” During a series of visits, the two grow closer, and it’s easy for Hemingway to morph into a father figure role for Myers. However, as Hemingway’s health dwindles, his depression and alcoholism consumes him, creating tension between the two that mirrors the international drama going on around them. The result is a deep character driven drama against a fascinating backdrop that I enjoyed following thoroughly.

Even though Taylor and I probably won’t get matching friendship bracelets anytime soon, I enjoyed seeing Petitclerc’s journey, as seen through Myers, as he met his idol Hemingway. The acting in the movie is phenomenal, and the intensity both Ribisi and Sparks bring to their roles is incredible.  I enjoyed the costumes, sets, and cinematography. What I loved best is that they took a real life situation, regardless of how rare it was, and made it seem so completely authentic and relatable. As such, I definitely recommend this film to you, GeekGirl World!

For a closer look at PAPA, check out the official trailer below:

Film Friday: ‘The Jungle Book’ Review

This week, I’m reviewing the new live action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale about a young boy raised in the jungle and his journey to escape the imminent threat to his life. This happens to be one of my favorite animated classics from Disney. Right now, Disney seems to be on a trend where they want to make live action versions of their previously animated movies. This is a trend that I wish Disney would get over, like their trend to turn all their theme park attractions into live action movies. At least that seems to have stopped with Tomorrowland. Now if you want to know if I think this film is worth a shot, you will have to watch my review below. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.

The Jungle Book is in theaters now, starring Neel Sethi as Mowgli Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, Giancarlo Esposito as Akela, and Christopher Walken as King Louie.

Reactions: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer #2

The latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer just dropped. It’s a longer cut than we’ve seen previously so definitely more reveals in here.

The Turtles go up against mad scientist Dr. Baxter Stockman who has been contracted out by The Shredder to create some mutants of his own. If you are a fan of the original cartoon you know who is set to make an appearance; Rock Steady and Bebop! There is also a new threat to NYC in the form of an invasion from Dimension X lead by the evil Krang (remember that blobby looking brain thing with tentacles from the cartoons?) However, Splinter and the Turtles keep adding to their crime-fighting ranks with Casey Jones making his franchise debut, so fighting threats on two different fronts shouldn’t be too difficult, right?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is, directed by Dave Green, and written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec. The follow up to the 2014 reboot of the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film franchise stars Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Will Arnett as Vern Fenwick, Brian Tee as The Shredder, Tyler Perry as Dr. Baxter Stockman, Brittany Ishibashi as Karai, and Laura Linney as Rebecca Vincent. The film is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 3, 2016.

I’m a big fan of the Turtles, but I wasn’t really happy with the last film. You’ll have to check out my reaction below to see if I think this sequel is worth our while! Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel!

Film Friday: ‘Hello, My Name Is Doris’

When I first heard about this film, the fact that Sally Field was in it caught my attention, and after reading the synopsis I thought that it must be some dramatic angsty romance with a little bit of comedy to lighten the mood. I was totally, completely, and pleasantly WRONG! This movie is a wonderfully amazing, side-splitting, laugh out loud jaunt through a life interrupted on the verge of an awakening. I enjoyed every single minute of it! The character of Doris is so beautifully written and Sally Field is the perfect fit! Check out my full review below!

Film Friday: ‘London Has Fallen’ Review

This week I watched London Has Fallen which is the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen. Gerard Butler is back as Secret Service agent, Mike Banning and once again we have a situation where he must protect the president (Aaron Eckhart) at all costs. The movie is explosive (literally) with a lot of non-stop action sequences that really make the movie an exciting film to watch.

Check out my review of the film below, and let me know what you think after you go see the film. Don’t forget, subscribe to our YouTube channel!

Colonel Brandon, Severus Snape, and the Death of Interesting People

The problem with writing a tribute to an an actor who has passed is that it becomes increasingly difficult to separate the performer from his performances. That’s the double-edged sword of being an actor, though. You’re famous not just for being who you are, but for all the other people you have been. I can only imagine what it’s like to suffer dissociative personality disorder by proxy as you walk down the street and are recognized as someone different every time you turn a corner.

It’s because of this inevitable flux that I’ve had to start this article over and over again all morning. How do you talk about how much you’ll miss a performer without letting the characters dwarf the man who brought them to life? My only answer is that you’ve got to treat a character like a work of art, conceived by a writer but breathed into existence by the one who portrays him.

Alan Rickman, aged 69, died in London on January 14, 2016, on my birthday.

That last part is just so you’ll understand why I might be a little overly sentimental right now. It was hard, sad news to wake up to. Since the story broke my entire facebook feed has been one long continuous stream of tributes, pictures, quotes, and gifs of wands being cast into the air in tribute. There’s something miserable and yet comforting in that.

David Bowie, who also passed away this week at 69, once said, “We’d rather be scared / together than alone,” (Fun fact, that was one of my three senior yearbook quotes). So when something sad happens we often find solace in solidarity. While it pained me to see so many fans sad, it was nice to know I wasn’t going to spend the day having to pretend I wasn’t in mourning because those around me wouldn’t understand why.

So I’m going to tell you something very shocking: Severus Snape in Harry Potter wasn’t the most important role that Alan Rickman ever played.

It wasn’t Hans Gruber in Die Hard, and it wasn’t even Alexander Dane in Galaxy Quest.

I know. Blasphemy. But let me try to meet my burden.

I contend that Colonel Brandon from Sense and Sensibility was more important than Alen in Snow Cake, Metatron in Dogma, or Sheriff Nottingham in Robin Hood. Colonel Brandon was an anomaly. He was a good guy. He was the noble, unsullied hero. While his love interest, Marianne, was not immediately taken with him, he was never under suspicion of anything more terrible than being lovelorn and, at the worst, boring. No shady past dogged him, no cynicism plagued him, no snarkiness, no bitterness, no maliciousness, no murderous tendencies. He was a white hat, a phrase used to describe “the good guy,” above reproach. And while troubled and burdened with unrequited love, he was not to be pitied but rooted for.

Colonel-Brandon-colonel-christopher-brandon-12784128-1024-576

His portrayal of Colonel Brandon was delicate, sophisticated, and all too utterly romantic with introspection. Other roles are more famous, but this role is most important because it showcases not just Rickman’s “range”, but his depth and commitment to tenderness as well. Most people can play closed off and crass, malicious or malcontent. But to be able to touch the core of a character and remain open and vulnerable enough to bring an audience to tears simultaneously with sorrow and joy is unique.

Ok… Severus Snape. I know.

I’m supposed to talk about Severus Snape – that’s what everyone’s waiting for. If I’m not going to talk about Hans Gruber, I need to talk about Severus Snape. Anton Mesmer or Rasputin simply won’t do today. A large chunk of my generation and those that followed first got to know Rickman as Snape because of the Harry Potter movies. And let me tell you, that’s not a bad place to see the man ply his craft.

Rickman’s portrayal of Snape wasn’t just great because “Snape’s the best character ever, omg.” It was because Rickman, twenty-some years older than his character, brought his history of fictional villainy into play.

Spoiler alert: Snape was technically a good guy.

While not a white hat by any means, his hat was definitely some shade of grey. But to play a white hat who is playing a black hat who is actually a grey hat who everyone thinks is actually a black hat pretending to be a white hat is…. well, it’s nuanced. Let’s put it this way, if you haven’t read or watched Harry Potter, you probably won’t have any idea what I just said. But know that it’s accurate and it’s definitely a compliment.

MTS2_UdontKnow_654029_snape3

Rickman’s portrayal of Snape was so damned good because the character was already interesting, and Rickman was talented enough not to lose any of the original, singular complexity that J. K. Rowling created. In that way Rickman honored the character of Snape and became beloved by fans.

For eight movies he embodied the mystery of Snape and, in my opinion, never lost Snape’s thread. Perhaps it was because he was one of the few with whom Rowling shared his character’s end fate, but Rickman remained painfully true to his counterpart for a decade. Snape is iconic and Alan Rickman made him so. I’m convinced that any other actor, no matter how ingeniously talented he was, could not have done so.

On the British panel show QI, series 6, episode 11, ‘Films and Fames,’ John Sessions does his excellent impression of Alan Rickman and tells a story about how a child with no filter asked Rickman why “he always played villains.” Rickman replied in his indomitable way, “I don’t play villains. I play very interesting people.”

What made this funny when it first aired but bittersweet now that Rickman has passed is that he was typecast so often as the shadowy villain, or at least “not the hero.” But Rickman’s roles were always intense, and so often our first memories of him was as an antagonist who was more interesting than the hero. In this way Rickman helped to teach us that the “villain” wasn’t always intended to be booed.

Good actors are all around. We all have a favorite performer who strikes us in some way that cannot be rivaled. But Alan Rickman was damned great in my opinion because he never shortchanged a character by going with the flow of being typecast. He never phoned it in, and because of this we don’t just lose “an actor.”

With Rickman gone we suffer the death of untold stories, of unmet interesting people. His former roles live on to pay tribute to the man who created them, but there is also sadness in knowing we won’t be meeting any more.

Surviving the Summer Break for ‘Once Upon a Time’ Fans – Eating Our Feelings Looking at Past Roles

We’re getting closer to the Season 5 premiere of Once Upon a Time but we’re still a month and a half away! I feel like we’ve been looking forward for most of our summer journey together as Oncers, desperate for tastes here and there of things to come. This week we’re going to go back in time with the help of the Internet Movie Database to see what some of our beloved stars were doing before they wound up in the Enchanted Forest. Let it be known! Thar be SPOILERS ahead!

Ginnifer Goodwin – Snow White

Most Snow White role: Margene Heffman, third sister-wife and entrepreneur on HBO’s polygamous drama Big Love from 2006-2011.
https://thecantedangle.wordpress.com/tag/margene-heffman/
I’m not saying Snow White was practicing polyandry when she lived with the Dwarves, but Margene and Snow do have a lot in common. They are bright, spirited, loving mother-types to many, and both have a closet full of skeletons no one saw coming.

Least Snow White role: Maya in Comedy Central’s first original movie Porn ‘n Chicken in 2002. I couldn’t find a clip of her as Maya, so I’m just basing my assumption off the fact that what I did find searching for “Porn ‘n Chicken” didn’t really say “motherly fairy tale princess” to me. And, while we can’t stop you from doing it, we don’t want to tell our readers to Google “porn and chicken,” so here’s a clip of Goodwin on Seth Myers talking about how her son is Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones.

Videogame roll: Roll from Mega Man. Though not a robot that we know of, she’s sweet, protective, and clever. She’s also good with a broom!

 

Jennifer Morrison – Emma Swan

Most motherly role: As Winona Kirk, in 2009’s Star Trek, Morrison gave birth to yet another little boy who was destined for more than his humble beginnings, who grew up without a proper father, and who went on to strange new lands to defeat creepy villains.

Least motherly role: Zoey Pierson from How I Met Your Mother.


Not only does she not become Ted’s future wife or mother to his children, but she’s likened to Cinderella’s evil step-mother when it’s revealed that her step-daughter hates her.

Bakery roll: Cinnamon roll. The Charming family quirk of liking cinnamon on their hot chocolate is endearing, and Emma has proven she’s very layered. It’s worth getting past her hard outer layers to reach her soft and warm heart.

 

Lana Parrilla – Regina

Most regal role: Trina Decker from CBS’s Swingtown.

Though an airline stewardess, Trina lived a very affluent life with lots of time for extracurricular activities.

Least regal role:  Janet Grafton from several 2004 episodes of NYPD Blue.  Nothing says blue collar like patrolling a beat in your home burrough. Throw in a failed marriage and this show has Parrilla in her realist role.

Sushi roll: The “Sexy Roll.” Good or evil, fancy or down to earth, Parrilla is always alluring. And it’s not just her physical assets that make her so. Parrilla’s acting chops have only gotten more honed, making her versatile and in regal command of her stage.

 

Josh Dallas – Prince Charming

Most mighty and heroic role: Fandral, Thor’s friend and brother in arms from 2011’s Thor is one-third of the Warriors Three and is as princely and charming as Dallas’s OUaT counterpart. Sadly many of Dallas’s scenes in Thor were deleted and he was unable to reprise his role in Thor: The Dark World because of scheduling conflicts filming OUaT.

Least mighty or heroic role: Node #2 in a 2008 episode of Doctor Who called “The Silence in the Library.”

Dallas played the face of Mark Chambers, a man who donated his face to the library to be a pleasing visual representation most likely to appear pleasing to the user, in this case Donna Noble. Skip to about the 10 minute mark to facetime with Dallas.

Lunch roll: The hero roll. From lunchtime staple to party platter necessity, the hero roll is loved by all. Bonus, sometimes the nicer ones come with a little decorative sword!

 

Robert Carlyle – Rumpelstiltskin

Highest grossing role: Portraying Gaz in 1997’s The Full Monty, this was Carlyle’s, and the UK’s, highest grossing film to date, raking in $45,950,122 after a budget of only $3,500,000. Please enjoy this clip of Rumpelstiltskin embarrassing Baelfire.

Lowest grossing role: Funny enough, Carlyle also starred in a film titled Once Upon a Time in the Midlands about a petty thief who tries to get his babymama back after a decade. It had a budget of $3,041,025 but only made about $172,564. That’s right, you did the math in your head correctly. That’s about 5%. This may or may not have been a student film, I’m not sure.  See if you can sit through the trailer longer than I could.

Totally not gross roll: Scottish sausage roll. I really don’t feel I should have to explain this one. Have you had one of these? Make them and eat them with no apologies to your heart, waistline, or doctor.

 

Colin O’Donoghue – Killian Jones

Best dressed role: Duke Philip of Bavaria from 2009’s The Tudors is arguably the most opulently dressed character O’Donoghue’s played. It’s a far cry from his pirate garb, which, while practical, is undeniably the uniform of a rogue and scoundrel. Watch his doomed romance with Mary Tudor, as played by OUaT’s Sarah Bolger, here.

Least dressed role: Lead gent in Christina Perri’s music video for The Words, O’Donoghue doesn’t just appear shirtless, but also takes a pensive bath before bed.

It’s crucial to the plot, I tell you! Fun fact, Perri dedicated The Words to Hook and Emma’s romance, making her the ultimate fanvid creator.

Protip Roll: Rolling your shirts to fit more of them in your luggage.

“Not that Colin O’Donoghue needs more shirts.”

the majority of the fangirl community

Giancarlo Esposito – Sidney Glass

Giancarlo has the distinguished honor of having what I think is undeniably the most international Wikipedia introduction ever:

Giancarlo Giuseppe Alessandro Esposito (born April 26, 1958) is a Danish-born American actor, director, and producer of African-Italian descent.

Most notable role: Gus Fring, Walter White’s boss and haunted sociopath from Breaking Bad, 2009-2011. Here he is imparting his wisdom, “a man provides.”

Surprising role: Mickey, the camp counselor at Camp Echo Rock in Season 14 of Sesame Street.


Check out his scenes here, and especially enjoy the one where Big Bird thinks he’s getting mugged by the future meth kingpin of the Southwest.

Edible roll: A chocolate Danish. I won’t lie; I made myself laugh at that one.
All this talk about sushi and danish have left me hungry, so if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to watch Season 4 again and eat my feelings.

20th Century Fox Releases New ‘Fantastic Four’ Posters

This morning we received the newest posters for 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the Fantastic Four. Not only do we get a good look at our heroes in their reimagined costumes, but we catch a solid glimpse of Doctor Doom that lasts more than half a second.
