I hate (LOVE) to admit it, but I am not part of this mega-billion dollar phenomenon. I DO NOT get it. I tried reading one of the first books and could not get into it. I have to admit, after that I have dismissed it and moved on. I do not get all the hype and craziness associated with the whole fantasy. I have even tried watching a few of the movies on cable when they run them and they are just not my “thing”.
Perhaps it’s because it’s for children, I hope so. Perhaps I’m just too mature! Yeah, that’s it! Even though I know a lot of adults love it. Maybe my inner child has grown up! Whatever!
It can’t be because I don’t like to read, because I read about a book a day. I guess this series just isn’t for me!
Color me crazy but, in my opinion the actors have grown too old to carry off the story line, but perhaps that’s my prejudice talking?! I just am not interested! I know I am being controversial, but that’s what makes Me, ME!
I’ve heard of “Harry Potter Nuts” who dressed in character and were in line in Arizona yesterday at around 1:00 PM waiting for the midnight show. I’m talking in the Arizona heat of 102 degrees! OMG! Really? That’s dedication, that’s a fan. I have never been a fan of anything to that degree. God Bless them if that’s their thing and if that makes them happy. I am happy NOT being involved, Thank You very much. Hype bothers me. Lunacy like that makes me a little crazy by association.
So, if you are a Harry Potter Fan, I’m glad your last movie is out! Perhaps we can get past this now! It’s over! Yay!
