It All Ended
For us it ended on Saturday afternoon at 5:25 p.m. The last installment of our beloved Harry Potter movie franchise. As almost any die hard book reader would say – “The book was better”. But that is the clichéd truth for any book made into a movie. And while it does still ring true in this case – I LOVED the movie. I’ve loved all of the Harry Potter movies. But this one in particular was excellent. By far the best acting and script that I’ve seen for this series. The portrayal of Snape’s memories was particularly well done and I’ll admit that I balled all the way through them. Even Nathan shed a tear or two. It was so poignant and beautiful.
I’m a little sad to see “it all end”, but all good things must come to a conclusion. And like any really good book, I know I’ll be revisiting the world of Harry Potter many times in the future. I am looking forward to one day sharing that world with my children and enjoying it yet again through their eyes. The struggle for good to triumph over evil is a timeless theme that I don’t think I’ll ever not enjoy reading about. Now I’m just looking for the next great series to come along!
And like all great fantasy worlds, there is always a little humor surrounding the devotedness of its fans. I thought this video was awesome!
