So every so often I’ll catch my wife watching one of the earlier Harry Potter films. I’ll sit and watch a bit with her then move along. But this last time I decided that I wanted to watch all of the films and properly sit through them once again.
So admittedly, the first two I watched in passing with her, I saw pretty much all of it, but I didn’t sit from start to finish. The decision to do that came after the second film. Still, I feel like I need to do watch those first two in their entirety to feel like I watched them all again. I did sit and watch the other films from start to finish.
I have to tell you, I still enjoy this franchise very much. It is one of the greatest film series that I’ve ever watched and it has certainly stood the test of time. I’ve been wanting to reread the books again for a while now, I really enjoyed them. I remember being so into the 5th book that I was reading for a few minutes before bedtime, and then suddenly my work alarm went off. I didn’t even perceive that I was up all night reading.
I want to reread the Cursed Child again and I’d really love it if they made a film about it. I heard that Daniel Radcliffe is not currently interested in the role of Harry Potter if they make the film. Though I have my own personal feelings about that crap, I am not going to go into a rant about it. If these are his feelings, I respect his right to not want to do it. I guess like everyone else in life, he’ll have to learn that he too can be replaced. I’d prefer that he continue his role as Harry Potter, but if he feels that strongly about it, we can get us another Harry.
I really do hope they make the movie though. I do intend to reread the play again very soon. Thing is I’m still on my Monster Hunter series kick, but I’ll get to it soon. What are your thoughts on the Harry Potter franchise?
