Countdown to Harry Potter 7: 3 Days

Lore Sjöberg grades the various hexes and curses in the Potter World.

For example:

Avada Kedavra (The Killing Curse)

It kills people, which is boring. If you have access to a wide selection of magic spells, just plain killing someone strikes me as a failure of the imagination. Any decent villain understands the concept of “a fate worse than death.” How about a magic spell that makes it so everyone on your block parks right in the middle of a curb section that can normally fit two cars? If some evil wizard threatened me with that I’d give up faster than you can say, “Harry Potter and the Pervasive Inconveniences.”

Grade: D+
