    Read them when I was in Elementary/ Middle School: Lost interest in the books after Order of the Phoenix. The movies have been decent-ish but they're still something you kinda have to see if you were ever into HP. Overall, it's ok

    I'll see it because I've seen the rest. I'm not even really into HP, was just forced to sit through it during deployment and want to finish the story. Never understood why they had to wave sticks and speak latin to do magic.

    My wife is huge fan and has read the last book, again, in preparation. Personally I couldn't care less. I read the first book when it came out and didn't like it, and she's made me watch the movies and I don't like those either.
    I think there was some deal with the devil involved as she was homeless then started writing and publishing and book that's become so big it's revived broom making in England and has been on currency (sarcasm).
    I'm just going to be glad when it's over and Hollywood starts making other cr*p no one cares about.
    What about Watchmen, or Inception? Both of those were awesome and got almost no recognition.
    I am excited about Batman 3 though. Maybe we can turn it into a thread about that.

    I'm an absurdly huge HP fan (just ask Fett 4 Real XD). My mother essentially forced me to watch the first film when I was going through an incredibly difficult time in my life where I had become dangerousely depressed.... I finally gave in. It took me to a place where I could relax, get lost in the movie, and for a brief moment, not feel like life was hopeless. From that night on, it stayed in my VHS (yes, I said VHS lol). It was the last thing I watched before I went to bed and the first thing I watched in the mornin for almost 6 months.

    The fact that I am still among the living is proof that magic is alive and well and living in the HP books and movies... because only some kind of serious magic could have pulled me through.

    I'm a big fan of the series, both in print and on screen. anything that inspires kids to read thousand page hard cover books is good by me!

    I even just got back from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal.

    I really like the Harry Potter movies. At first I was skeptical. I didn't see any of them until Prisoner of Azkaban was on DVD. I thought they were stupid. But I managed to catch Sorcerer's Stone on TV and then my wife (well, GF at the time) made me watch all of them. After that we saw Goblet of Fire in the theater and I've been hooked. We went to Harry Potter world while we were at CV and it was crazy. Cool park but way too crowded and disorganized.

    I don't read the books though...mainly because I just don't read for fun.

    It's not stuff that no one cares about, a lot of people care about it. Everybody has different opinions no need to get worked up about it.

    I'm a big Harry Potter fan. Just finished my Bellatrix costume for Dragon Con.

    I'm also pretty sure I was more excited than any child at the WWoHP when we went the day before CV.

    I know I know. Like I said, my wife is huge fan. She talks all the time about Harry Potter World, the new movies and what's going to happen next. I'm just wearing thin from the whole thing. I liken it to all those people that got wrapped up in Twilight, got crazy about the whole thing, and get sad that aren't wizards or vampires.

    It is mandatory when you make a comment as the above, that pics be entered into the fray of discussion. It's rule #8173300030482546-B... It was put into law at the Harry Potter fan consortium meeting, Prague 1836 .lol :P

    Harry Potter books are really amazing! I agree with Stormtrooperguy it got kids to read books again. We pretty much watch the movies when ever they pop up on cable, (much like another movie I rather enjoy)or they get watched regularly on blu-ray.
    All 3 of my kids have read all the books including myself. We are all avid readers.
    The movies lack alot of story the books have...cause that never happens.
    It will be interesting to see how this last movie goes with sooooo much to uncover!! Hence the two parter??? I'm sure of it.
    Which will suck having to wait for also, I can't wait!!!!!! I'm very very excited to see it, we kinda grew up with these kids its pretty amazing.
    It has the the same feeling that Star Wars gave me as a kid.... anticipation! And sad to see it end.
