I re-read the Harry Potter books every couple of years and I still enjoy them, which is kinda surprising considering a lot of things from my childhood have not aged gracefully, and she's still adding to it with things like that godawful Fantastic Beasts film...

The third HP movie is the best one though.

But that was the point where the crappy new Dumbledore showed up and the acting got significantly worse...even if the special effects got better.

But he has such a minor part...and Lupin and Pettigrew were both really poorly cast. And the Dementors were really disappointing, too.

Eh, maybe, but the overall cinematography and tone got a lot better in this movie compared the ones before (and some of the ones after).

I'll give you that the tone at least was better, but the content was pretty disappointing in my opinion. I'd say it's better than pretty much every film that followed it, but I don't think it's better than the first or the second film on balance of things...

I think if you took the content that was actually in the book from the two Deathly Hallows movies and stuck it together you'd have one movie that lasted for about two hours...

The most interesting thing I remember about the Deathly Hallows movies was that I saw the first part on one of the big XD theater screens - more expensive, but was the only showing we could see without waiting...well, even longer than the few hours we had to wait anyway. Movie was so sold out it wasn't funny. Still haven't been to a movie since then that was that hard to get into.

I wonder if it's almost time again for me to rewatch the HP movies...hmm...
Though I always end up losing a bit of interest past the fourth movie. Yeah, the last few just don't do it as much for me.

    Considering it took about a month for me to make almost 1k posts, I should be hitting 30K in about a few months myself. :x
