Harry Potter series concludes...


Well, yesterday was the release of the final half of the final Harry Potter to Blu Ray & DVD. As the posters for its theatrical release said, "It all ends here." Now, both the books and the movies are all completed. What began in 1997, with the first book's release in the UK, is now over; Though, the magic will continue to live on. For those following the series, when did it finally hit that there would be no more movies/books?


I've followed the series since I was in 3rd grade when one of my teachers read the first book in-class. My mom hardly believed I could read that much and retain the details; as a result, she had asked me questions about the book to which I answered correctly. To answer my own question, I only realized the series' completion as I opened the box from Amazon, took off the case's plastic and opened the case.

For me, the series ended when the final book was released. The films were all passable at best.

Having read each book when they were released, I have to say that I only liked the first two movies. The rest are full of plot holes.

I found the films to be passable popcorn fare.

Never read the books.

Really liked reading the books as a kid, movies were pretty good but the last two made it worth it, very well done films.

I've never been able to get over how much the third movie sucked. Every one of the movies since that one has been tainted with the memory of the anorexic, hunch-backed werewolf.

Only in their imaginary world. Never trust people on the bus.

I actually rather like what I've seen of the series (the fanfic "My Immortal", second-to-last movie, first book, and last movie in that order), but I do sometimes get very annoyed by people who adore and worship the series, especially the people in the theater who cried while watching either of the Deathly Hallows. I grant that there are some moving moments, but... crying? And admitting to it? Have some pride, fans.

The only good thing about the movies was watching Emma Watson come of age

Oh and I read the first three books in school as well, thought they were pants. Doesn't get near any of the good Fantasy/Sci-Fi writers out there.

There will be something else to fill the void left behind. Hopefully it won't be more VampirexGirlxWerewolf garbage, because to be honest I'm getting a little tired of it.

Indeed. The series concluded in 2007. I stopped watching the movies after GoF. God they were terrible.

True, it did technically conclude then; but, now the film adaptations of the series have concluded (as far as availability to purchase). Aside from some parts being left out, I disagree with them being terrible.
