The End of the Potter
Unless you have lived underneath a rock for the last fourteen years you should be familiar with the name Harry Potter. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (No that’s not a typo we changed the name in the states) arrived in bookstores in June of 1997 and the rest is history. The Harry Potter saga actually concluded four years ago with the release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows but guess what? I don’t read! I can read but I would much rather watch a great movie that was a book. Think about it. Instead of days of endless reading and tired eyes you can get the whole story in two hours and 30 minutes. I’ll take the two hours of movie over all the reading any day.
Okay enough of me being a poor educational role model. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 opens this weekend and will conclude the Harry Potter Saga for us movies nerds who never cracked the books. I, for one cannot wait. I have no problem admitting that I’m a huge fan of these movies. All of these movies are great and seemed to get better with each installment which is a hard thing to do in this movie age. What I also like about these movies is that it will surely send the awful Transformers 3 out of the top spot at the box office. What a bummer that this franchise has to end and the mindless Transformers saga will live on. The Harry Potter legacy will live on though amusement parks, toys, movies, and oh yeah the original book that a new generation will discover every year, like my kids who I will make read the Harry Potter books. Then as a reward for reading the book I will show them the movies because everyone knows movies are way cooler than the books. Do as I say, not as I do kids.
