Also: Gay Wizards

Gawker article about the gay undertones of the latest Harry Potter is funny and right on.

The one I would comment on: the totally inappropriate* kind of stuff that goes down between the new creepy professor** and both Harry and (in the flashbacks) Voldemort when Voldemort was a kid. It's very, very teacher's pet hitting on teacher, teacher hoping to get some hot statutory action. All Harry and lil' Voldemort need to do is swap their sweaters and ties for choirboy outfits and the stage would be completely set.

* I have been enjoying using the term "inappropriate" of late. Nazism? Inappropriate. Limbaugh? Inappropriate. Man's inhumanity to man? Inappropriate.
** Whatever his name is. The old one with the photos of his past students (naked.)

No me gusta.

An unhappy coincidence, dude, an unhappy coincidence.

But seriously, that is the vibe in a couple of the scenes in the movie.
