When is Google going to add the Mountains of Madness to the Antarctic streetview?

Read that as Dagon Alley.  I know I can't be the only one.

Would have been nice if there was a link.

You can't go in the shops? Weak. At least you can do that with some places at Universal.

Waiting on Minas Tirith. Or even Mordor. Both would be awesome.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, and the muggles will eventually use technology to conquer their magic of the wizarding world.  This is the just the first step in the process.

There was in the second sentence.

Some of the most overrated movies of all time....  They are kids movies that for some reason teens and adults got into.

 

the8re: Waiting on Minas Tirith. Or even Mordor. Both would be awesome.


One does not simply google street view Mordor.

I feel bad for Sean Bean.  Of the movies and shows that I've seen him in, his character seems to get killed off in the worst possible ways.

Someone needs to refresh the Unplottable spell on Diagon Alley.

That was very neat (though the shops were quite crowded).

I saw the first movie. It started out perfectly well but eventually lost all credibility and became unwatchable.

It had a secret hidden boarding school of magic accessed by a train on an invisible platform. There was an alley filled with magic shops and a huge bank staffed by highly offensive Jewish stereotypes. So far, no problems. Then there was a bit with a train and some flying sweets and a bit with a talking hat dividing up the children into houses for the brave, the wise, the useless and the evil.

Again, so far I have no problem.

Then we see that in the very first day, a ginger kind makes two friends. That's where it lost me.

It was about magic? I thought it was a documentary about British Amish.

A dark, slithery incomprehensible THIS.
