I suppose there are many things I could say about this film. I think the first point I would like to make is that, in my opinion, it doesn’t compare to the book. It slightly ruined the film in that way for me, even though I knew it wouldn’t be as good as the book.
However, having said that, it was still a brilliant film. They did things pretty well and I’m extremely bummed that the series is over. I cried a lot during, and massively at the end, of the film and so did most of the other people in the cinema.
The scene in Gringotts was done really well, and I feel that Helena Bonham Carter did amazing in this scene. I imagine it was difficult to act as Hermione acting as Bellatrix, but she pulled it off really well.
Another absolutely amazing performance was given by Alan Rickman. In his final performance as Severus Snape, he has done absolutely brilliantly. The way it was done has truly shown that he is not a bad man at all. He is the bravest man, and the character who shows the most love in the whole series. Dumbledore teaches that love conquers all and no character shows this better than Severus Snape.
With this post, I say goodbye to waiting for the next Harry Potter film. I also say goodbye to We Do Things. I hardly post here anymore, I never have time and I have too much going on to really hold onto it. I want to thank everyone who has liked my posts and I want to thank the other members of the team for being amazing people.
Is how I’m going to vote in the UK referendum on AV tomorrow, and for all of you ages 18 upwards and living in the UK, I think you should too.
The current system may be simple and most of the time provide majority governments (just not currently).
With AV MPs will have to work harder, they wont just be able to rely on the 30% core vote to win a seat, they’ll have to appeal to a wider range of people in order to bring their share of votes up to the required 50%. Which means that 50% or more of the constituents will have to have put them as one of their choices, and you don’t have to put them down at all. If you just want to vote for the main 3 parties then that’s all you do, you can leave the rest blank, so your vote wont be redistributed to parties you hate, even as a last resort.
You get a choice, so if you like lots of Labours policies but also think that the Green Party have some good ideas too, you don’t have to choose just one you can prioritise and in the election results it’ll be clearer to the candidates what constituents value.
Safe seats wont be as common, unless the MPs work really hard and deliver for their constituency. AV will mean that if a politician doesn’t carry out their promises or does something which the electorate doesn’t like then they can be voted out more easily, due to the multiple selection system.
There are flaws with First Past The Post which I could tell you about, if you want to be pushed into voting for AV, you can google them, but the positive aspects of AV are, in my opinion, enough to merit a vote in favour.
And just in case I can’t convince you….
That’s right, Theme Hospital. One of those old games that is still awesome today. GO AND PLAY IT. Even Charlie Sheen plays it.

Hey guys; sorry I haven’t been typing in a while… Things to see, places to go, people to do - you know how life is.
Anyway, I wanted to return to WeDoThings to tell you to see Paul, the newest film from the genuises (or is it genii?) that are Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. It tells the story of two British comic book geeks who meet a fugitive alien (brilliantly voiced by Seth Rogen) who’s trying to get back to his home planet.
It’s full of fantastic references to basically every science-fiction movie made in the last thirty years, and the acting’s great from everyone involved. If you were a fan of Hot Fuzz or Shaun of the Dead, I urge you to go and see Paul: it’s one close encounter that no-one should miss.
Promise to be back soon with a nice proper post again. Live long and propser!
Dust Bowl is Joe Bonamassa’s new album. If you don’t know who Bonamassa is, then he is essentially one of the greatest blues rock artists ever to grace the planet, and you are missing out. Earlier on he has graced us with such songs as Ballad of John Henry, and now here is a new album entitled Dust Bowl. It’s amazing right from the first song (Slow Train) to the last (Prisoner) and I advise you to go and buy it!
What's all this, then?
