What did you think of the Cursed Child? I thought it was a "BOO"!
This is my first post ever, but I'm glad I joined the community! Anyways, after reading The Cursed Child, and I think it deserves a "GREAT" credit.
Now, maybe you're all thinking, "Hey, no need to be harsh!" But, there's an explanation to all of this. Servers ones. Get it, SEVERUS in Several? No? Okay…
1. PLOT HOLES
When Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy used a time turner, that DID NOT make sense in the first place. All the time turners were destroyed in The Prisoner of Azkaban, the only one left was the one Professor McGonacall gave Hermione for her impossibly-scheduled classes.
And they did mention that when using time turners, you would age the time you went back before. For example, if I turned it a year ago, when I come back, I'd be a year older now. BUT when Albus and Scorpius used it to 30 years before, they didn't age AT ALL when they returned.
2. VOLDEMORT'S DAUGHTER MAKES NO SENSE
According to the book, Daphne "Diggory" was born at the early battle of Hogwarts, which means Bellatrix was pregnant at the Malfoy Mansion. But in the movies, her stomach was absolutely flat, but not the point. You're telling me the Voldemort LOVED Bellatrix? He said he wanted no one, and he needed no one, obviously concluding love. And you can't just magically get pregnant. If so, why would Bellatrix even want that?
3. HARRY ISN'T THE HARRY WE KNOW AND LOVE
In one scene, Harry Potter was talking to his son, and he was so angry, he spat out, "I wish I didn't have a son." Are you kidding me right now? The thing Harry wanted the most was his parents. The mirror clearly said that! And despite all the terrible things he'd been through without Lily and James, it's quite clear he would NEVER do such a thing to his OWN son.
And in another scene, Harry yells at McGonacall that she wouldn't understand the friendship his son had between the enemy's son because she didn't have kids. This deeply hurt her, and Harry even said he would shut down the school if Albus and Scorpius continued being friends, the school that changed his life.
In another scene, Ginny even questions Harry about their marrige, and Harry treats her not like the Harry we know. Harry would treat both of these women nothing but respect. This deeply hurt me as well.
4. RON SEEMS LIKE A JOKE
Sure, Ron is a goofy friend, but loyal as well. But in this book, they made him do NOTHING but ridiculous scenes such as farts and burps and unfunny jokes. In one scene, he was layed back like Ron, but that's it. No more Loyal Ronald Weasley anymore.
Wow, 4, a horrible number in my country like 13. I hope you have more facts that state whether the script was good or bad. Good comments are welcome too!
