At the end of one of the movies Harry did nothing. Absolutely nothing. The phoenix racked up several thousand air miles saving his worthless butt from getting kicked though. I mean that little deus ex machina flew in like three fucking times while Harrys just standing around pissing his pants. Hell, the sole heroic deed harry eventually managed to do was defacing a book. Anyone drawing mustaches on their teachers in the school yearbook is just as heroic as Harry (and without the phoenix bailing them out of trouble over and over and over again mind you).
So my question is, was that scene accurate to the books? Are these novels so horribly written that the hero does nothing while lame ass deus ex machina's have to save the story? Not just once, but several times. I'm just curious if the movie just fucked up or if all potter fandom is the equivalent to that one really fat otaku who keeps going on and on about how great Goku is and how the latest naruto fight was so emotional they almost cried while even other otaku are saying 'dude, just get a fucking life'.

Arigatomina wrote:Yeah, but do you get the feeling everything *but* Harry is doing the rising? Seems to me he just sunk deeper and deeper into emo-syndrome while everyone else was gathering strength for the new menace coming up. He emo's his way through 2.5 books before he finds snogging as a healthy alternative to angsting and whining. I really cringe at the idea of what new low he'll sink to in the new book.
