To think Bellatrix is a smug little twat

'I killed Sirius Black!'

ODFOD.

And brush your hair it's a fucking mess.

Polista Wed 28-Dec-16 22:01:30

Agreed. Don't like half-witted simpering pout, either.

grin

HBC plays the same character in each film doesn't she. Scruffy, slightly gothic mockney creepy weirdo.

Gallavich Wed 28-Dec-16 22:02:11

I wish Helen mcrory had got the part. HBC is a cariacature.

AccioMerlot Wed 28-Dec-16 22:04:38

To be fair, i think if you look at the source material, Bellatrix is not supposed to be a sympathetic character... grin

Twogoats Wed 28-Dec-16 22:05:33

Yeah, I don't think I've ever seen HBC do anything other than the gothic weirdo

Sherlock35 Wed 28-Dec-16 22:06:16

IIRC, Helen McRory (sp?) did get the part but then became pregnant and I think didn't want to commit to such a big role so she took on Narcissa Malfoy instead

Oh I love HBC in real life, I'm just very invested in Harry Potter grin

Pineapplemilkshake Wed 28-Dec-16 22:07:42

Didn't HBC play the Queen mother in the King's Speech? But yeah, I think she's a goth in pretty much every other movie I've seen her in

bowchikkawowwow Wed 28-Dec-16 22:17:24

She's pretty 'normal' in Charlie and the chocolate factory!

Bobsmum02 Wed 28-Dec-16 22:28:02

I really like Bellatrix as a character (in a love to hate kind of way) but actually really lothe her when she kills Sirius and sings her little song!

Don't even get me started on when she kills Dobby!!

TheRollingCrone Wed 28-Dec-16 22:30:15

Yeah, but Mrs W does for her in the end "Not my daughter, YOU BITCH" !

Thinnestofthinice Wed 28-Dec-16 22:34:10

Acciomerlot grin

CherryChasingDotMuncher Wed 28-Dec-16 22:35:30

Ooh Rolling that's one of my favourite scenes in any movie! I could've kissed Julie Walters (although TBF she's another one who plays the same part in everything, but somehow doesn't get on my tits the way HBC does)

TheRollingCrone Wed 28-Dec-16 22:42:15

A whole other side to Mrs W Cherry all that knitting-but a stone cold killer when her daughters threatened! grin

HeyRoly Wed 28-Dec-16 22:50:32

I was thrilled when I first heard HBC was going to play Bellatrix, but always thought her performance was too cartoonish and not menacing enough.

PaulAnkaTheDog Wed 28-Dec-16 22:52:48

Love Bellatrix. I think HBC plays her perfectly; deranged and creepy, just like she should be.

MaryPoppinsPenguins Wed 28-Dec-16 22:53:14

I liked her as Anne Boleyn in the TV adaptation of Henry VIII... other than that, you're right. Always a shouty gothic crazy.

Rixera Wed 28-Dec-16 22:54:43

Ooh, I love book Bellatrix. Such a wicked sycophant. I can see her genuinely belonging to a cult- a sadistic devotee feverishly wanting to be the leader's top bitch.
Not keen on the film's as a whole though.

CockacidalManiac Wed 28-Dec-16 22:55:12

Dobby had it coming.
He's a pain in the arse

Rixera Wed 28-Dec-16 22:55:16

Films, ofc.

YouMeanYouForgotCranberriesToo Wed 28-Dec-16 22:57:13

I don't like HBC at all, but I think she plays Bellatrix very well. I particularly like the scene where she is supposed to be Hermione using pollyjuice potion. I think she does that perfectly.

ijustwannadance Wed 28-Dec-16 23:03:55

I do wonder how much work she would've had if she hadn't been with Tim Burton for all those years.

GeillisTheWitch Wed 28-Dec-16 23:07:06

*Dobby had it coming.

Finally, another Dobby hater. I thought I was the only one not fussed that he died. Irritating little twat.

CherryChasingDotMuncher Wed 28-Dec-16 23:08:05

I'm also in the "Dobby is a twat" camp. I felt nothing when he died.
