On a tangential note, did you guys know that Rowling wanted Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Monty Python and the Holy Grail) to direct the Harry Potter movies, but Warner Brothers insisted on using the guy who did Home Alone, instead?

I just found this out.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Just saying that he seems to have lost his touch, if Grimm is any indication.

There is still hope! According to IMDb, he didn't actually write Grimm!

If I were J. K. Rowling, when the 7th movie was made, I wouldn't make any more books except a spinoff here and there, but make sure that the rest of the franchise continued.  Then, When I was the richest person on the face of the Earth, I would make a Man-made Island off the coast of Scotland, and make it my own country, and name it "Rowling".

As much as I hate doing this, I noticed something... Didn't someone say they have a bitch-friend who thought that Harry would turn out to be a Horcrux? Is your friend psychic?
