Comment:

  • While I was well in my teens when the movies came out, and I was never emotionally or intellectually the target audience for the stories, they’re such a big part of both popular and film culture that I would be remiss not to screen the series. Overall, I found most of the series repetitive and boring, and its music unmemorable. Regardless, I found Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—Part 1 to be best and most compelling film in the series. But even then, not being a big Harry Potter fan, I couldn’t give it a high rating for themes, direction, and cinematography that I felt were much better executed elsewhere for older audiences through Star Wars or the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • Michael Gambon’s Dumbledore was a jerk.
