I'm halfway through reading my first ARC (advanced reader copy), so there will be no review today. Check back on Wednesday to hear about Eight Against Reality.
While you wait for me to finish it, here's a few more Harry Potter videos. They aren't filk, just existing songs put to use by HP fans.
"I Stand Alone" takes movie screenshots and fan-drawn artwork to reflect on the unrequited love between Snape and Lily. Some of the artwork is amazing.
"Be Prepared" puts the Lion King song to an alternate Harry Potter story with Snape as Scar. (Yep more Snape) The person who put this one together has the potential for a career in movie editing. Mouths match the words impressively close. And it's just plain hysterical.
Then the last song "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better" sung by Ruthie Henshall and John Barrowman is used to elaborate on the relationship between Ron and Hermione. It fits them soooooo well. I showed this video to my mother in law, and she was chuckling the whole time.
For some more fun, check out these videos and their related links. "Zero to Hero" with Harry as Hercules, "Man Out of You" with Snape as Captain Shang, and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" showing what Snape might have been remembering at the end of Deathly Hallows (Don't watch if you haven't read it and don't want it spoiled.).
I love how fan vids keep using Snape. There's quite a bit of Snape-love out there. But then he was written so well to begin with. Every little bit Rowling revealed over the series about his past made him a deeper character. And DH made me cry for him. I may need a whole box of tissues when the movie comes out. Alan Rickman has played the character so well, that I hear his voice when I read Snape's dialogue in the books. (I think you can figure out by now that I have some of that Snape-love, too. What a fabulous tragic character.)
