A Son, Lost

My beloved imaginary boyfriend (haha!), and you must know who he is by now, was involved in the TV dramatization of Rudyard Kipling's story about his lost son Jack. It was a project he took on before HP movie 6 started its production a while back.

The show was shown on ITV1 in the UK sometime in November and we fans got to see snippet of it via YouTube (where else, really?). I saw a clip of the ending where Mr Kipling recite his poem and it touches my heart. It was a very gripping scene as it is.
“Have you news of my boy Jack?”

Not this tide.
“When d’you think that he’ll come back?”
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.
“Has any one else had word of him?”
Not this tide.
For what is sunk will hardly swim,
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.

“Oh, dear, what comfort can I find?”
None this tide,
Nor any tide,
Except he did not shame his kind—
Not even with that wind blowing, and that tide.

Then hold your head up all the more,
This tide,
And every tide;
Because he was the son you bore,
And gave to that wind blowing and that tide!


Sigh.

Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince book wasn't a favourite of mine amongst all seven books. Hence, the lack in excitement towards the movie. They've been some news; production is well on the way and there were also some updates on castings for new roles i.e. Narcissa Malfoy, Fenrir Greyback. The first official still has come out already even.

But recently I've been told that they've decided not to include Voldemort's family history and backstory, which is weird. What is movie 6 without them? That's the essence of the whole plot, isn't it? The story about the Gaunts and Tom Riddle history.

Ugh, whatever. Every time I think about Harry and Ginny making out, I threw up a little in my mouth. And this movie is going to be so FULL OF IT!

I am so not going to watch it when it comes out.
