Why Potterheads Freaked Out About Depp’s Casting & Why It Is Important

index
Since I couldn’t find a close up as Depp as What-Tim-Burton-May-Think-A-Bad-Rabbit-Looks-Like, this is the best I could do.

With the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, there was controversy and back lash for Potter fans about the casting of Johnny Depp as the big bad for this movie, Gellert Grindelwald. This anger was rooted in Depp’s recent divorce from actress Amber Heard, and the abuse allegations Amber made against Depp. According to the tabloids, Amber had witnesses and graphic photos as prove of the domestic violence (DV) she received from Depp.

Many fan’s anger was rooted in the casting because many Potterheads, myself included, turned to Rowling’s books as an attempt to escape the abuse they were experiencing. While Heard’s name was being dragged through the mud by friends and fans of Depp, he got signed to a franchise where he may be a major part in the following four films. Fans had to choose between their love of the Potter universe, and supporting someone who may or may not have abused his wife.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Movie Review

Overall rating: 4/5

¬†As a Potterhead, it was very exciting to go back into the Potter world. It was new and exciting, and completely horrifying. The few characters we’ve heard about that are in the movie are dead in the 7 Harry Potter movies, and this movie is essentially introducing us to a completely different world that I didn’t know much about.

We got to learn about a different country, new creatures that we may have only heard about in passing, and new characters to obsess over. Unlike with the other books turned movies, we had NO idea what was going to happen. But, next to nothing could keep me away from the theatre to see a new movie in the Harry Potter universe.

When school started I slacked a lot on my reading, hence why I went quiet for the past two months. I am trying to take personal time from school work, which has ended up with me reading. That brings me to this review of Dance with the Devil, a Dark Hunter novel by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

This book tells us the story of Zarek, one of the most hated Dark Hunters to serve Artemis. After being banished to Alaska after killing his charges, Zarek blows his chance of being moved after he betrayed the Dark Hunters by joining ranks with Dionysus and Styxx in the previous book. When he changed teams to safe Sunshine’s life, Zarek saved himself from getting killed.

Another book done from Kelley Armstrong’s series, Women of the Otherworld, and it’s another Paige Winterbourne story. This time Paige is attempting to start another Coven after she was kicked out of the original Coven, but continues to get turned down by witches because of her association with Sorcerer and Cabal family member, Lucas Cortez.

Night Embrace by Sherrilyn Kenyon

9780312984823Another book by Sherrilyn Kenyon checked off the list, and I haven’t even made a dent in her book list. I’m going to continue to read Kenyon’s book until I’ve read all of the books that I have, even if I continue well after the summer end.

Night Embrace follows Talon of the Morrigantes and Sunshine Runningwolf’s love story, which started in Talon’s life before he became a Dark Hunter. After angering a God while he grieved over the death of his Uncle, Talon is cursed to watch any human he loves die. This results in the death of his wife, Nynia, and their unborn son and his sister before his own death.
