A few weeks back I started to watch every Harry Potter film. To tell the whole story, I saw the reunion special and was so moved by the stories behind the films that I wished I had seen the movies because I had only seen one.
After years of dismissing these films, I have to admit I was wrong and say that I loved the series. I believe the series has everything from adventure, action, funny moments, and intense drama. The movie also has an amazing cast. The three main characters (Potter, Hermione, Ron) were perfectly cast, they can make this world believable. And you surround them with great veterans and you get a great cast. I was surprised at all the actors that appeared in the series. Alan Rickman is great as Severus but you also get Gary Oldman in a few of the films.
The first films in the series were more or less adventure films and as they grow the stories change from innocent to more intense storylines. In this case, the movie was helped by having different directors, they each brought different tones but kept the soul of the story.
So it took me years but I finally gave the movies a chance and I’m so glad I saw them. What a ride it has been every weekend
