I have this tendency to watch the Harry Potter movies whenever they're on TV. Having HBO included in the price of my rent gives me plenty of opportunities to watch these movies. At least, I have plenty of opportunities to see Sorcerer's Stone and the two Deathly Hallows films. Those are the ones currently showing on the various HBO channels from time to time.
Anyway, I was watching Deathly Hallows Part II the other day and something occurred to me. It's something that I haven't thought of before, which is surprising because I'm such a huge geek. It's the kind of thought that should have hit me ages ago. It's the kind of thought that some other funny geek probably came up with long before I did.
You know that scene when Snape gathers all the students in the Great Hall in the middle of the night? It's right after Harry, Ron and Hermione finally arrive at Hogwarts. Well, Snape and McGonagall have an impromptu duel and then Snape turns tail and runs. Except he doesn't really run. His cloak goes kind of crazy, then he turns into a puff of smoke and flies out the window, shattering the glass in the process.
How's your mind? Blown? Yeah, I thought it might be.
