“Harry Potter” May Get Rebooted As A Series For HBO Max

April 4, 2023 / Posted by:

Today in Hollywood Is Repeating Shit, Again news: the immensely successful Harry Potter may be getting a reboot series at HBO. The last Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, was released in 2011. I guess Warner Bros. feels like a little over a decade is enough time to reboot the entire damn thing because that’s what they’re reportedly looking to do. And they’re trying to bring JK Rowling on as a producer. If the series happens and JK Rowling signs on, that means she may do press for the show. Well, I guess HBO Max executives all own stock in Tylenol since this could be one big giant PR headache disaster.

Jon Stewart Wants To Clarify His Comments About The Antisemitic Goblins Of “Harry Potter”

January 5, 2022 / Posted by:

Last month Jon Stewart criticized Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling on an episode of his podcast, The Problem With Jon Stewart. And it has nothing to do with transphobia this time. Jon pointed out that the goblins who run Gringotts bank in the Harry Potter movies appear to be antisemitic caricatures. He compared the miserly, hook-nosed creatures to antisemitic illustrations included in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a famous anti-Jewish book from 1903. But once headlines proclaimed “Jon Stewart Accuses J.K. Rowling of Antisemitism,” Jon clarified his comments, insisting he loves Harry Potter and everybody needs to take a chill pill.

Ralph Fiennes Doesn’t Understand The “Hatred” Toward J.K. Rowling

March 18, 2021 / Posted by:

Voldermort to the rescue! Ralph Fiennes, the snake-faced antagonist from the Harry Potter franchise, has bravely come out in support of J.K. Rowling after she’s been called out for her transphobia. J.K’s consistent obsession with trans people has caused stars from the Harry Potter movies to publicly support the transgender community. Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) have all responded to J.K.’s trans comments by showing love and support for the trans community. But there’s been those who have jumped to defend their checks J.K. Rowling. Like Eddie Redmayne, who is still in the Fantastic Beasts series, and John Cleese who also declared he’s Team J.K. while throwing in some perceived trans bigotry of his own. Well, now it’s time for You-Know-Who himself to side with J.K. in the age of cancel culture! How very Voldemort of Ralph Fiennes.

John Cleese Defended His Defense Of JK Rowling’s Perceived Transphobia With Some Perceived Transphobia of His Own

November 23, 2020 / Posted by:

Never meet your heroes is useless advice in the age of Twitter. You’ll just be there on Twitter, not exactly minding your own business, and out of nowhere someone like Monty Python‘s John Cleese will just sneak up on you with some transphobic bullshit you know is going to disappoint your husband. As an industry pro, I don’t have heroes anymore, but my poor sweet hubby already lost Terry Gilliam to a “Black lesbian in transition” named Loretta, and now John’s decided he wants to be a “Cambodian police woman,” all in the name of belittling marginalized people and defending the honor of rich white ladies like JK Rowling.

Mads Mikkelsen Is In Talks To Take Over For Johnny Depp In “Fantastic Beasts 3”

November 11, 2020 / Posted by:

There really isn’t much Warner Bros could do at this point to entice me to see Fantastic Beasts 3 considering my personal feelings l about J.K. Rowling (nosy bigot, nerd), Johnny Depp (court certifiedwife beater”, greasy teeth and hair), and Eddie Redmayne (looks like Albert Nobbs, #NotMyMarius), but hiring my favorite Danish snack food, Mads Mikkelsen (tastier than Smørrebrød, would let him cannibalize my labia a little) is a start. According to Deadline, Mads is currently Warner Bros’ first choice to replace Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in the movie, which is already in production. If that happens, and they can get the coronavirus under control to the point where I can take a plane trip of at least 8 hours, then I MIGHT consider watching it until the Klonopin and tonic kicks in. I might. But only for Mads.
