We all love chocolate and we all love Harry Potter but the director of The Harry Potter Alliance (HPA), Andrew Slack, makes us think twice about munching on Harry Potter chocolate. In a video uploaded by nerimon, YouTuber Alex Day, who’s also friends with Slack, tells us that this tasty treat received an “F” for human rights by the advisors at Free2Work.
The Harry Potter Alliance wrote to Warner Brothers about this report,
“Dear Warner Bros,
We grew up inspired by the human rights messages that J.K. Rowling wove into the Harry Potter books and movies. We are upset to hear that Harry Potter chocolate gets an “F” in human rights…Albus Dumbledore asked us to choose between what is right and what is easy. We ask you to do the same. Show us the report.”
Warner Bros denies these allegations and refuses to release the report on the standards of their chocolate. Muggles and wizards are now coming together for this new campaign, Show Us the Report. The HPA is asking fans of the series to sign their petition to put pressure on the movie studio to release their official report.
What’s really upsetting is that the cocoa plant is one of the most corrupt crops in the world. Children are mistreated and forced into child labor just to harvest the coveted cocoa beans. This is not what Harry Potter stands for and neither should we!
So if you love chocolate and if you love Harry Potter, why not take a moment to sign the petition? It’s already gained over 15,000 signatures including those of the cast members of the Harry Potter movies.
As hilarious as the first movie was, I didn’t have high hopes for this film. Sequels are never as good as the originals, and in this case, I predicted that the film would be the exact same format and journey the ‘Wolfpack’ took in the first film. I was correct.
Let’s get the plot out of the way, though. This time around, right after the bachelor party in Las Vegas, Phil, Stu, Alan, and Doug jet to Thailand for Stu’s wedding. Stu’s plan for a subdued bachelor party, however, goes seriously awry when they wake up the next morning. In a hotel. In Bangkok.
Of course, out-of-this-world revelations are discovered throughout the movie, such as face tattoos and missing body parts. Funny things happen. People die. But the film is almost exactly the same as the first; they wake up, someone is missing, they try to find him, then funny things happen. The end.
The film tends to push the envelope even further this time around (I won’t give anything away, but it’s definitely up there in shock-factor.) I will say the movie definitely delivers on that front, providing even more shocking and crazy situations. But aside the shocking moment or two, the film really is the same bag of tricks at the first one.
I know, I know, what did I expect from the flick? An oscar-worthy plot line? But they could have at least come up with some new material. Hey, it if it worked the first time, I guess they’ll keep milking it while they can.
Of course, Zach Galifianakis’ character Alan saves the film with his off-beat humour and very, very stupid comments. He is worth the price of admission alone.
So if you’re looking for a good laugh or to be entertained, by all means see the film. It’s a great movie to see with your friends. But don’t expect to be blown away or to laugh harder than the first film, because you won’t.
In fact, you’ll laugh less, unless you’re the kind of person who can watch something 80,000 times and laugh at it every time. I give the movie 3 out of 5 stars, just because it made me laugh a few times and delivered what I expected it to.
After being fired off of Two and a Half Men by Warner Brothers, Charlie Sheen is suing WB for $100,000,000. And rather than keep the matters private, Sheen has decided to entertain us even more by asking for a public trial in a public courthouse! Yay!
According to TMZ, Sheen’s request follows his claim that WB is trying to “force the case into private arbitration because the judges who preside over these arbitrations do lots of business with Warner Bros.” Because everyone is involved in a conspiracy theory against Charlie Sheen – duh! Winning!
I wonder if you get free passes to the trial when you buy tickets to his upcoming tour…or will this be a PREMIUM premium ticket package? If he’s charging $750 to meet him, imagine what he could charge people to attend the trial…hm.
It might be paranoia, or it might be all that Tiger Blood he’s on, but one thing’s for sure – Charlie will make sure it is never a dull moment for Team Sheen! And for reasons that will never be answerable, we will be behind him every step of the way.
Warner Brothers have hired celebrity lawyers Ron Olsen and John Spiegel to handle Charlie Sheen’s contract and the future of his show, Two and a Half Men. The studio was forced to make the move after the loudmouth ex-star formally threatened a lawsuit upon them.
Though no official legal documentation has surfaced yet, Perez Hilton reports that Olsen and Spiegel have recently been in communication with Sheen’s lawyer regarding his claims that the studio was negligent when it came to Sheen’s partying ways, but overreacted as soon as Chuck Lorre’s name was dragged into the picture.
Olsen and Spiegel are big-time legal guys! We see Charlie Sheen’s star crashing very soon if he’s not more choosy with his words.
As if that’s gonna happen anytime soon!
Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen has been doing very well since starting his round of in-home rehab, according to TMZ. Apparently he’s passed two separate drug tests – one taken yesterday and one taken a week ago – with flying colours.
Sheen has been working with team of nationally known addiction specialists that report Sheen’s progress directly to Warner Bros. and CBS so that it can be determined when Sheen’s show can go back into production.
Sheen himself has been reportedly feeling much better and is “itching to get back to work as soon as possible” according to one source.
Hmm, spent too much money on eight-balls, perhaps?
Get well soon, Charlie! Our grandmas will get upset if they miss too many episodes of your show.
Kings of Leon are clearing up rumours after Perez Hilton reported yesterday that the band was planning on leaving Columbia Records to move to Warner Bros. A source to the online blogger also claimed that the band was going to pay out the recording costs with Columbia, citing that the band “have enough heft to negotiate such a favourable deal.”
However, the band made announced today that these claims are completely false. “Consider the source. Kings of Leon have always had and continue to have a great relationship with their label,” stated the band.
Kings of Leon have left Columbia Records and will be recording with Warner Brothers, reports Perez Hilton. The new deal requires the group to pay half of the recording costs, but gives them more control over production and a larger cut of the profits.
“Kings of Leon are one of the few bands on the planet who have enough heft to negotiate such a favourable deal,” said a source. “It is virtually unheard of, but it shows how keen Warner Brothers were to have them on their books.”
A trick or a treat?
With Halloween just passed I can’t get enough of scary games. You see last year my friends and I all got together and played Dead Space for the PS3. Sure it was a single player experience but we took turns and only played the game after 1 am every Friday leading up to Halloween. It was an insanely fun experience.
This year I got Scooby-Doo! First frights for the Wii. Now it’s no Dead Space but if you think back to when you were a kid(like 6 to10) I’m sure you wanted a slight chill of Halloween and not the full blown horror we all seek these days. Read more…
Talks about remaking the Barbara Streisand classic A Star is Born continue at Warner Brothers, reports Perez Hilton.
A writer has recently been signed to draft a script, and executives are reportedly looking at Beyonce to resume Streisand’s role as Esther Hoffman. Beyonce would be joining the likes of Janet Gaynor and Judy Garland who have also played the role in earlier versions of the film.
Bradley Cooper gained two important things from shooting his upcoming hyped summer comedy flick The Hangover.
The first being his now refined Yoda-like knowledge of throwing the perfect bachelor party- which he says should include condoms, a muppet, and lots of ice.
But the second, and by far gaining the most buzz, is Cooper’s promotion of a lifetime from a working actor, to well, a movie star.
Only, if you ask the humble 34-year-old North Philly about the hype, you’ll suddenly be hauled back down to earth.
“I don’t feel any of that and maybe I should,” Cooper tells andPOP modestly, trying to keep the excitement at bay. A failed attempt, considering Warner Bros. Entertainment already gave the green light to a sequel in 2011 even before the current film hits theaters on June 5.
“I will admit this though,” he says, “I do have a bigger role in the movie than usual which I really liked.”
