The series were a nice read and the movies entertaining. It truly was a kick in the ghoulies to split the last movie in two, but greed, is good.

I think you may be the first person I have heard of that did not like Harry Potter, Harry Potter.

I like Harry but two or three would have been enough.

Except there were 7 best selling novels and the movies were making hundreds of millions.

The early ones were more memorable than the later ones. They all kinda blended together after a while. I like HP and all but I was never a "big fan". Read the books and seen the movies and got my fix. Maybe if I was still 11....

I personally never understood the appeal. Since the series has been so popular, I assume that the fault is with me. I had absolutely no interest in the Twilight stuff either, also popular with practically everyone else. Maybe I just am not capable of the suspension of disbelief that would allow me to enjoy these things.

I really liked Harry Potter but I couldn't suffer through a Twilight movie to save my life. But I'm a gamer, so "suspension of disbelief" is part of my personality. I was more or less forced into Harry Potter by my mother, who was a librarian before she retired. Harry Potter books got kids to read again, and they were reading really thick books.... like THIS thick!

"Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing
what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it
is to have a boyfriend." - Stephen King

They're very different series and I hate to see them lumped together. Don't get me wrong, I don't think Harry Potter movies were "snubbed" by the Oscars, but they've got far more depth than Twilight films. And it doesn't hurt that they're very entertaining. Despite the occasional subpar acting, I think the movies were excellent and you should probably give them a try. My personal favorite was "The Prisoner of Azkhaban".

"With his long white hair and beard, Professor Smullyan resembled Ian McKellen’s wizard, Gandalf, from the “Lord of the Rings” film series. He was lanky, hated exercise and loved steak and eggs. He studied Eastern religion. He told corny jokes and performed close-up magic to anyone near him. He played the piano with passion and talent into his 90s"

Love the entire series specially Prisoner of Azkaban. The new prequel Fantastic Beasts and where to find them is also very interesting.
