HARRY POTTER vs FANTASTIC BEASTS

Hey guys,
This is sounding a bit repetitive now but we are really sorry about the amount of time between uploads. Hopefully it will get better and yes, Harry potter studio tour review PT.2 is coming soon(er or later).

However I think this would be a good time at ACTUALLY do: HARRY POTTER vs FANTASTIC BEASTS


SCREENPLAY:
The script makes up most of the movies, nearly everything that happens relies on a story. And I means there is the ever so tiny issue of the Harry Potter™ Series having 7 full stories, most of them with A LOT of pages and a very thick spine and Fantastic Beasts™ being based off of a MADE UP TEXTBOOK PUBLISHED FOR CHARITY WHERE THE SPINE IS LIKE A PINKY FINGER WIDE. Yeah. However as I’m sure you will agree, the Harry potter™ film series has a much better story-line, just remember that the Fantastic Beasts story-line is still like a little baby Niffler (assuming a little bit here…) when it still can’t rob banks and sniff gold out from a mile away, but it WILL grow and become a Niffler that can rob Swiss banks and sniff gold out from several miles away… Eh…

Visual Effects
This is a tough category. We see how Harry Potter™ grows in effects over 10 years of producing. Its also worth a mention that we can all agree that some scenes with Dobby in the second film are half decent (Considering it was filmed in 2002). However Fantastic Beasts™ is pure movie magic. In that movie, it’s hard to tell real from fake. I mean just look at this: (HP philosopher stone wand scene) compared to this (FB scene). However Harry Potter™ has very little use for VFX, generally using massive budgets to make it in real life (anamatronics). So …

Giant Snakes

The fact that this is a category surprises many people… Let’s see, Basilisk vs Occamy. Um… The Occamy from Fantastic Beasts™ can fly and it’s cyshfhdjdn (insert) with, as Newt explains, means that it shrinks and/or grows to fill the available space, and it can fly. IT FLIPPIN’ FLIES. Their eggshells are made of silver and they learn to defend themselves early because poachers raid Occamy nests. It feeds on insects (as far as we know) and has a sharp beak even though it’s pretty much a snake. The small baby Occamy’s are cute, but not as cute as a Niffler… Obviously. The basilisk is DEFINITELY a snake. It has deadly poison teeth and on point hearing and it feeds on rats and mice and anything else in the chamber of secrets // the sewers (clearly Salazar Slytherin needs a better estate agent). It is killed by roosters cries and somehow can fit through pipes in a matter of seconds. Oh yeah, look at it’s eyes and you’ll die, unless it’s a reflection then you’ll be petrified for like an ENTIRE YEAR. Sheesh, you’d think st.Mungos or at least the potions supply cupboard would have some mandrakes lying around. So… I guess it’s a win for Fantastic Beasts?

Villans

Well this is another tough one as, I guess, in Fantastic Beasts™ there is Grindelwald and in Harry Potter™ there is like 4 reincarnations of Voldemort but we haven’t really seen enough of Fantastic Beasts™ to to judge this fairly. It’s a close call, I mean Newt literally says, “I’m not one of Grindelwald’s fanatics” and gets the death sentence. But then again I doubt that there is one death eater that hasn’t been tortured by Voldemort, who seems to show delight in torturing and/or killing people which is grim. I guess

Conclusion

Well as you can see it’s pretty tight with 1 point difference. But it’s very hard to pick a winner. It’s safe to say (refering to the Niffler concept in paragraph 3) that Fantastic Beasts™ is simply not as developed as Harry Potter™ but with such a fantastic (eh.. eh..) first film from Fantastic Beasts™ (ITS ON MY TYPING SUGGESTIONS NOW *adjusts tie and clears throat* ) I think that whilst Harry potter™ just has the edge as a series, going of just the one film of Fantastic Beasts™ I think it’s safe to stay with the old conclusion and it’s a win for Fantastic Beasts™ and as a forefeit Harry Potter loses the ™ sign (don’t you “I’m gonna call the lawyers” on me… seriously though.. don’t*.) … So, what did you think? We’d love to know in the discussion section below and as new films are being made and released, will the opinion change?

By the way we’ve actually taken the ® symbol away now. It’s so oversized. So now we are just using good old ™ as it’s a lot smaller and looks more stylish. So it’s now just a normal trademark not registered one. Deal with it.

*Also if J.K Rowling is reading this- we respect all you do and all but we just cba to get a giant registered trademark symbol everytime that makes the post look…well…a bit dumb. Thanks for your cooperation 😀

Niffler spin-off series rumours (and no we are NOT joking)

As you all know we are a fan site about Nifflers and this morning I was scrolling through Twitter and I discovered something that would be very improper to not upload to the site. So here it is. LET’S GET TO IT

What I discovered on the Pottermore® Twitter page made my face light up with excitement. An article. On the Pottermore ® website titled ‘Why the Niffler should have his own spin-off series’ and I clicked on that beast of a link (which you can find right here) and I read it and read it and read it and read it and read it and the whole time I was thinking to myself ‘WHERE THE HECK IS THE FLIPPIN’ PETITION FOR THIS?’

I really enjoyed this article and I am very happy that the people who work with the extended universe of Harry Potter have finally realised the extreme response to the Niffler.

I don’t know if this might be a bit of a hint hint to something that might be in production but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

We’re modern now!!

Hey guys it’s now the truth that we have Social Media!!!!! So follow our Twitter account. Also, is ya feel like it follow our Facebook page have fun!!!! This also means that you 21st Century people have an excuse to go on Social media while looking at our website so you don’t have to speed read our pages anymore because you desperately want to check your Twitter/Facebook and yes all you fancy people with your Android 7.0 and iPhone 6+ and up split screens (as long as the iPhone is iPhone{x}+) must be rolling your eyes right now saying to yourselves “but I can already do that anyways! Why is he bothering with this post?” Well mister whoever you are i’ll tell you exactly why I am bothering with this post. It’s because not all of us have fancy-shmansey split-screen enabled phones! Sorry for ranting but I just knew a few people would be saying that. Ooh, by the way a little note- All links will open in a new tab.

What’s going on…..

Ok everybody, we AGAIN have not uploaded for like two months and I don’t really have an excuse for that. Yes I could say that we are on Summer Holiday but that’s just gonna wear out after a while.

We will try to still provide informative and fun articles that don’t make you want to fall asleep. Even if we have to just upload a random post now and then that makes no sense we will definitely be uploading more stuff when it gets closer to the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 ® (my goodness we Really REALLY HONESTLY MUST GET THE LICENSING FOR THAT. SERIOUSLY MY PHONE HAS THE ® SYMBOL ON PREDICTIVE. FLIPPIN’ ‘ECK) until then we will keep on updating the FB2 post. Anyways thanks for staying with us and thanks for taking our excuses and our crap 👊 👍 🙂 

So…..uuuuuummmmm……Uuuuuuuhhhh…..Yeah…..See you later…….
