And you seriously expected something good out of the Twilight series?
All I ask is for some consistency. Twilight put a DAM back together in the last season. I was expecting some grandios feats of raw power, not something arbitrary like an "aging spell". I don't want to be TOLD I'm supposed to be impressed she can do that, I want to be SHOWN. If it had been somehow established in past continuity, that would be one thing, but here it comes out of nowhere and asks that we pretty please be impressed.
I at LEAST expected to see them compare how much they could levitate, though admittedly Trixie DID turn Twilight's house upside down.
Boast Busters was an awesome episode, because in the end Twilight showed just how powerful she really was, and in this one it's all downplayed. We're told specifically that Twilight's magic power has grown since she arrived in Ponyville, but we see her shug sweat off her forehead after levitating a few animals into a figure eight. Her magical power has all the consistency anymore of John Carter's super-strength, except that in THAT movie it was for plot-convenience. Here, I have no explanation.
Also, Breaking Dawn Part 2 was a MASTERPIECE of rifftastic hilarity, taking every bad thing about it and cranking it up to eleven and making it so bad it's awesome. That last fight scene was slated to make it one of the most enjoyable things I'd seen all year, but then they yanked the rug out and killed the buzz. It was ALWAYS going to be a terrible movie, but it was ALMOST the PERFECT terrible movie. Y'know?
Harry intentionally used the occlumantic link to see Voldemort's thoughts. He was flicking lit matches at Lucius Malfoy.
"Your pain bores me," said Darth Nonose. "Go fetch Severus. I have some death for him."
