Okay, okay, I’m going to tell you what Hermione sees in Ron.

A trio is a balancing act, right? They’re equalizers of each other. Harry’s like the action, Hermione’s the brains, Ron’s the heart. Hermione has been assassinated in these movies, and I mean that genuinely—by giving her every single positive character trait that Ron has, they have assassinated her character in the movies. She’s been harmed by being made to be less human, because everything good Ron has, she’s been given.

So, for instance: “If you want to kill Harry, you’re going to have to kill me too”—RON, leg is broken, he’s in pain, gets up and stands in front of Harry and says this. Who gets that line in the movie? Hermione.

“Fear of a name increases the fear of the thing itself.” Hermione doesn’t say Voldemort’s name until well into the books—that’s Dumbledore’s line. When does Hermione say it in the movies? Beginning of Movie 2.

When the Devil’s Snare is curling itself around everybody, Hermione panics, and Ron is the one who keeps his head and says “Are you a witch or not?” In the movie, everybody else panics and Hermione keeps her head and does the biggest, brightest flare of sunlight spell there ever was.

So, Hermione—all her flaws were shaved away in the films. And that sounds like you’re making a kick-ass, amazing character, and what you’re doing is dehumanizing her. And it pisses me off. It really does.

In the books, they balance each other out, because where Hermione gets frazzled and maybe her rationality overtakes some of her instinct, Ron has that to back it up; Ron has a kind of emotional grounding that can keep Hermione’s hyper-rationalness in check. Sometimes Hermione’s super-logical nature grates Harry and bothers him, and isn’t the thing he needs even if it’s the right thing, like when she says “You have a saving people thing.” That is the thing that Harry needed to hear, she’s a hundred percent right, but the way she does it is wrong. That’s the classic “she’s super logical, she’s super brilliant, but she doesn’t know how to handle people emotionally,” at least Harry.

So in the books they are this balanced group, and in the movies, in the movies—hell, not even Harry is good enough for Hermione in the movies. No one’s good enough for Hermione in the movies—God isn’t good enough for Hermione in the movies! Hermione is everybody’s everything in the movies.

Harry’s idea to jump on the dragon in the books, who gets it in the movies? Hermione, who hates to fly. Hermione, who overcomes her withering fear of flying to take over Harry’s big idea to get out of the—like, why does Hermione get all these moments?

[John: Because we need to market the movie to girls.]

I think girls like the books, period. And like the Hermione in the books, and like the Hermione in the books just fine before Hollywood made her idealized and perfect. And if they would have trusted that, they would have been just fine.

Would the movies have been bad if she was as awesome as she was in the books, and as human as she was in the books? Would the movies get worse?

She IS a strong girl character. This is the thing that pisses me off. They are equating “strong” with superhuman. To me, the Hermione in the book is twelve times stronger than the completely unreachable ideal of Hermione in the movies. Give me the Hermione in the book who’s human and has flaws any single day of the week.

Here’s a classic example: When Snape in the first book yells at Hermione for being an insufferable know-it-all, do you want to know what Ron says in the book? “Well, you’re asking the questions, and she has to answer. Why ask if you don’t want to be told?” What does he say in the movie? “He’s got a point, you know.” Ron? Would never do that. Would NEVER do that, even before he liked Hermione. Ron would never do that.

Director Guillermo del Toro talks about Rinko Kikuchi and her character Mako Mori in Pacific Rim:

"I was very careful how I built the movie. One of the other things I decided was that I wanted a female lead who has equal force as the male leads. She’s not going to be a sex kitten, she’s not going to come out in cutoff shorts and a tank top, and it’s going to be a real earnestly drawn character." Noting that the other actors were exhausted and “destroyed physically” by filming in the intensive Jaeger cockpit harnesses, del Toro said: “The only one that didn’t break was Rinko Kikuchi, the girl. She never complained… I asked Rinko her secret and she said ‘I think of gummi bears and flowers.’ I try to do that in my life now” (x).

Good dragons under the control of bad people do bad things.

I have seen people try to analyze Raleigh’s fighting style in this scene

and I just sit here

chortling

muttering to myself

"It’s not Raleigh’s fighting style."

#Even with a ton of training  #it just wouldn’t be in the hand-to-hand combat lexicon of a six-foot-tall man  #to TUCK HIMSELF INTO A BALL AND SOMERSAULT ON ONE HAND  #in order to take down his opponent.  #This is the technique of a MUCH SMALLER HUMAN BEING.  #Someone who is accustomed to using people’s height and bulk against them  #not someone who already has height and bulk to his advantage.  #I will give you three guesses as to whose technique it actually is.  #HINT: she is standing in the background of the first gif with her fists up  #thinking to herself ‘Do the thing Raleigh. Do the thing.’  #DISCLAIMER: Hannah is not a martial arts expert.  #But this is no fucking joke legit exactly the kind of thing my mom taught me  #about controlling a situation and turning perceived disadvantages into the fucking endgame.  #The year I ran rock camp I asked my parents to teach the self-defense workshop  #and my mom is 5’2 and my dad is 6’2 and at least a hundred pounds heavier  #and she showed every girl at camp how to make themselves into a fulcrum  #and bring down big-ass scary dudes  #and never in my life shall I forget when she asked what other advantages we have  #and a girl held up her drumsticks  #and Mom took one and proceeded to jab it into Dad’s pressure point.  #A FUCKING DRUMSTICK. USE WHAT YOU’VE GOT OKAY.  #This got hella rambly but suffice it to say that I am  #and always shall be  #stanning Mako Mori 5ever.  #OKAY ONE MORE THING  #THIS IS THE KIND OF MOVE THAT COULD SNAP A BONE  #IF YOU DO IT JUST A TINY BIT WRONG  #BUT RALEIGH DIDN’T  #HIS ONLY OTHER NON-JAEGER FIGHT SCENE WAS CUT FROM THE MOVIE AND INVOLVED HIM SLAMMING A GUY’S HEAD INTO A BEER CAN
