I believe if there’s a good movie, there’s even a better book behind the making (uuf!i think my cat just farted😦..see,even she agrees in her own way).Heck yeah, im talking about the unparalled literature prowess of Rowling and Tolkein…need i say ya’ll better know im proud to be a pure blood in this case seeing as ive read and watched both the books and movies. When it comes to these two Ill only be highlighting a few of the similarities,God knows there’s quite a few of those
Lets transition into the topic of today of the day,shall We?
Numero uno: Both Harry and Frodo start off as young orphans living with their uncles.Frodo’s been blessed with Mr Baggins who is generally Nice and loves his nephew while Harry has his Uncle Dursley(curse him) who is…well,not Nice to say the least .
2.They both feature a wise,grey bearded wizard i.e Dumbledore and Gandalf the grey…(at one point both one and the same person if I may add;)literally it’s the same actor !Acting as mentors,guiding the protagonists through their journeys.
3.Seeing as We already have the protagonists why dont We add some spice and throw in Ol’ Voldy(Voldermort) and Sauron,the two Dark Lords with extreme power,who unfortunately lose it all,use vessels to store what remains of their souls and in turn -cant take physical form though their spirit lives on and then later..regain their power again.
4.Then we’ve got Voldermort’s horcxuses and of course Sauron’s Ring in which their souls are attached to meaning if they’re destroyed both Dark Lords wouldnt survive.Fifty point for poor Smeagol hehe,i think he kinda deserved it seeing as how things ended for him.. And his precious)
5.Dark forests;the Dark forest and Mirkwood/Fangorn from lord of the Rings.Now that i think about it,i dont know which is worse, risk the Dark forest and link up with Aragog the giant spider and his fam,werewolves and Centaurs,id count professor Umbridge here id it were possible,sadly..Then we’ve got Orks,the Nazguls and nasty Smeagol in lord of the Rings.
6.We’ve got Death Eaters for Voldy(sorry,it’s starting to stick on me )and Nazguls for Sauron who are followers who reign terror and are often sent to track down the protagonists.
7.Talking trees that move and think for themselves ie The whomping Willow from H.P and The Ents (who btw kicked Ork butts in the battle of the two towers😝rock on Treebeard!).
8.Where i done did my research called them ‘A mischievous comic relief’ pairing and here i mean,Fred&George then Merry&Pippin (these two were on some good old strong Narcotics courtesy of Gandalf and the stash they found in the tower,my OG legends from the days,see down here?these two get stoned Af)
9.Wont be able to Forget characters like Ron and Hermionie and Samwise Gamgee who teach us a very valuable lesson about friendship(reference to Ron and Sam) who both seem to express love for food only Ron can appreciate..and Oh,lookie here,they both have ginger hair.(God,Sam,i always knew deep down You were a Wiesley)
And finally Numero Diez:Characters that have both been good and evil at various stages throughout their lives(sometimes falsely).Both have final redemption(and end up dying).We have Severus Snape and Boromir
I think its really important to connect with the books You read in order to grasp the content within,You may find that some form of it is expressing itself in your life (Psychologically speaking).Its said that most of the fans of the two series have connected with the character’s lives.
