movie maps

The next time you watch FOTR, I highly suggest putting the subtitles on after Gandalf enters Bag End so you can read what Bilbo is saying in the background.

Gandalf: *discovers the map Bilbo has treasured for 60 years as a remembrance of his life-changing adventure*

Bilbo:

My assessment of the Power Rangers
  • Jason: troubled cinnamon roll, too young to be having an existential crisis
  • Kimberly: sassy boss ass bitch with a mean streak
  • Zac: caring and crazy son of a gun
  • Trini: smol angry lesbian bean
  • Billy: protect my son at all costs

If you had grown up with my parents, it would have been real weird for you. I didn’t grow up with both of them, but growing up with even one of them was not… I mean, I was on the movie-star map. When I was three hours old, I was photographed by Modern Screen. I don’t like being photographed. My father is now publicly saying that he took a lot of drugs. I don’t remember that. I spent my summers in Vegas. That was camp to me: sitting by the pool and hearing that weird music and having people paged.

I honestly don’t know why people love the Prisoner of Azkaban movie, and hate the Chamber of Secrets movie so much. At least, out of all the directors, Columbus stayed as true to the books as possible. And POA missed out an important bit of imformation: it didn’t reveal that Lupin was friends with James, it didn’t explain who the Marauders were, so for all we know movie!Harry could still be thinking 4 random strangers made the map.

“The map,” said Lupin. “The Marauder’s Map. I was in my office examining it-”

“You know how to work it?” Harry said suspiciously.

“Of course I know how to work it,” said Lupin, waving his hand impatiently. “I helped write it. I’m Moony – that was my friends’ nickname for me at school.”
