Harry Potter vs. Lord of Rings

  1. 1. Harry Potter vs. Lord of Rings By Justine
  2. 2. EPIC HERO <ul><li>Both movies have an epic hero, with special qualities. They pretty much have the same ideal qualities, those that make them the only one able to accomplish the quest. They are both going through very tough things, makes them stronger. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Harry Potter <ul><li>Brave : would lose his life if it would help to kill Voldemort </li></ul><ul><li>One of a kind (survived to Voldemort, scar…) </li></ul><ul><li>Not selfish at all : gives up his 7th school year to find the Horcrux (parts of Voldemort) </li></ul><ul><li>- Strong personality (lost his parents when he was a baby, endures his uncle, aunt and cousin’s viciousness, keeps fighting even when people let him down and don’t believe in him) </li></ul>
  4. 4. Frodo Baggins <ul><li>Pure of heart (is the only one able to carry the Ring, won’t be blinded by greed and power) </li></ul><ul><li>Not selfish: risks his life to destroy the Ring </li></ul><ul><li>Sees best in others: doesn’t take Gollum down, thinks he’s a good person from the beginning </li></ul><ul><li>- Sees himself changing through his quest, grows up. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Epic “sub heroes” <ul><li>HARRY POTTER </li></ul><ul><li>Hermione: smart, responsible </li></ul><ul><li>Ron: loyal, here from the beginning to the end </li></ul><ul><li>Hagrid: loyal, one of the only adult Harry tells everything to </li></ul><ul><li>LORD OF RINGS </li></ul><ul><li>Sam : the most loyal friend ever known, carries Frodo to the Mordor, never gives him up. “Don’t go where I can’t follow” </li></ul><ul><li>Merry and Peppin: brave, even being small, they fight in the wars, bring help (Ents) </li></ul><ul><li>Legolas : loyal, smart, strong, knows how to use a bow REALLY well. </li></ul>
  6. 6. HARRY’S QUEST <ul><li>Kill Voldemort, an evil wizard, who just wants to destroy everybody and to have an unlimited power. In every movie, and every book, Harry gets closer, helped by his friends, but most of the time he ends up close to death himself (1st movie, V. tries to kill him, but Harry’s mom protect him, labyrinth in 4th movie, dragons…) </li></ul>
  7. 7. FRODO’S QUEST <ul><li>Destroy the Ring to save the World. “One Ring to rule them all”. It has a huge power, that drives any human being crazy, greedy. He must not let Sauron have the Ring again; that would be a disaster because he is very mean, and has evil intentions. He intends to rule the world, and kill everybody. Thus, as Harry Potter’s, Frodo’s quest is a matter of life or death. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Vast setting <ul><li>Harry Potter </li></ul><ul><li>Hogwarts: huge magic school, makes the spectator dream… stairs changing, secret rooms, very old building = gorgeous </li></ul><ul><li>Lake (4th movie) </li></ul><ul><li>Woods </li></ul><ul><li>London </li></ul><ul><li>It pretty much covers every geographical setting possible, in every element. </li></ul><ul><li>Lord of Rings </li></ul><ul><li>Shire: ideal setting, green, grass, beautiful trees, everybody’s happy </li></ul><ul><li>Mordor: dark place, can easily imagine the bad/mean people are here </li></ul><ul><li>Rivendell: Elves’ place. Inspires magic, unreal, gorgeous. </li></ul><ul><li>Several other settings in Middle Earth! </li></ul>
  9. 9. Dangers Harry faced <ul><li>Voldemort at the end of the 1st movie </li></ul><ul><li>The basilisk in the 2nd one </li></ul><ul><li>A dragon in the 4th one </li></ul><ul><li>Dementors </li></ul><ul><li>Death Eaters </li></ul>
  10. 10. Dangers Frodo had to face <ul><li>Hiding from Ring Wraiths </li></ul><ul><li>Fighting Orcs </li></ul><ul><li>Trolls </li></ul><ul><li>Spider </li></ul><ul><li>Himself </li></ul><ul><li>Golum (at the end) </li></ul>
  11. 11. GUIDES <ul><li>Harry </li></ul><ul><li>Dumbledore : school’s director, most powerful good wizard, very nice and helpful to Harry </li></ul><ul><li>Sirius : only close family member </li></ul><ul><li>Ron/Hermione : loyal friends </li></ul><ul><li>Phoenix Order’s member : Harry’s friends, all believe in him and are willing to kill Voldemort </li></ul><ul><li>Frodo </li></ul><ul><li>Samwise : most loyal partner ever </li></ul><ul><li>Gandolf : to Frodo what Dumbledore is to Harry </li></ul><ul><li>Gollum : guide at first (leads him to Mordor), enemy at the end, blinded by greed </li></ul><ul><li>Every member of Fellowship of the Ring : helps Frodo as much as they can </li></ul>
  12. 12. Magical, protector, wise, loyal…
  13. 13. Supernatural forces in Harry Potter <ul><li>Good </li></ul><ul><li>Dumbledore: powerful wizard </li></ul><ul><li>Harry’s friends </li></ul><ul><li>Magical creatures: centaurs, hippogriffs, house-elves, ghosts, phoenix </li></ul><ul><li>Aurors: powerful wizards chasing Voldemort and Death Eaters </li></ul><ul><li>Evil </li></ul><ul><li>Voldemort: powerful wizard </li></ul><ul><li>Death Eaters </li></ul><ul><li>Magical creatures: Basilisk, Dementors, some ghosts, spider, mermaids… </li></ul>
  14. 14. Supernatural Forces in Lord of Rings <ul><li>Good </li></ul><ul><li>Gandalf: powerful wizard </li></ul><ul><li>Elves </li></ul><ul><li>Gollum? </li></ul><ul><li>Ents </li></ul><ul><li>Undead People </li></ul><ul><li>Evil </li></ul><ul><li>Sauron, Saruman: Powerful wizards </li></ul><ul><li>Orcs </li></ul><ul><li>Gollum? </li></ul><ul><li>Huge spider </li></ul><ul><li>Ringwraiths </li></ul><ul><li>Troll </li></ul>
  15. 15. Languages <ul><li>Harry Potter </li></ul><ul><li>Magical terms: creature’s names, spells (most of them come from latin) </li></ul><ul><li>Muggles language: wizards are not used to it (Mr Weasley) </li></ul><ul><li>Parseltongue: snake’s language. Harry can speak it, he got that from Voldemort when he left him the scar. </li></ul><ul><li>Lord of Rings </li></ul><ul><li>- Elves’ and Dwarves’ language, but Frodo doesn’t understand it. The countries and the characters have old names. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Themes/Messages <ul><li>Diversity: </li></ul><ul><li>- very different people in the Fellowship of the Ring- They aim for the same thing; their differences don’t matter, and if they do it is just to make the team stronger </li></ul><ul><li>- Harry’s best friend is from a poor family when Harry’s parents left him lots of money, he’s from a big family when Harry doesn’t have any; none of Hermione’s parents are wizard, Hagrid doesn’t have any magical power and is a semi-giant. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Death: </li></ul><ul><li>- Harry was confronted to death as soon as he was born when his parents were killed by Voldemort. Then his godfather died, killed by a Death Eaters. </li></ul><ul><li>- Frodo was confronted to the death too when Gandalf the Grey dies in the first movies. He was a good friend of his. </li></ul><ul><li>Neither fear death as long as it’s for the quest. Beyond that: they give their life away for the quest (ex: Ring killing Frodo, 7th book of Harry Potter…) </li></ul>
  18. 18. Conflicts <ul><li>Harry Potter </li></ul><ul><li>Wizards/Muggles: racism problem. Some evil wizards hate people without magic abilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Evil/Good: Voldemort+Death Eaters fight the good people, and the other way around. </li></ul><ul><li>Internal conflict: it’s hard to be keep hoping (V. takes possession of his mind), tries to fight the changes (parseltongue) </li></ul><ul><li>Lord of Rings </li></ul><ul><li>Evil/Good: Sauron+Saruman+ their army against the Fellowship and people they gathered on their way </li></ul><ul><li>Internal conflict: changes along his way, hard to face. Trust problem (Golum), the Ring takes possession of him, he’s not himself anymore. </li></ul>
  19. 20. <ul><li>I doubt that there is even one of you guys who hasn’t seen or read Harry Potter yet… Maybe it is because it is AWESOME!! </li></ul><ul><li>But if I’m wrong, you should definitely watch or read (personnally I liked the books better…) the Harry Potters!!!!!! You will thank me :-) </li></ul>
