    I think on a TV screen, it'll be pretty underwhelming.

    Next year it'll be the 10th anniversary and some theaters will probably play it again on their big screen. Maybe we'll catch it then. LOL

    Good post, Oak. :thumbup:

    Harry Potter just never did it for me. Not a hater, just not my cup of tea. The couple of movies I saw were fine, I just never connected to the characters enough to care to see what happened next.

    I think in order to connect with the characters in HP, you really need to see the movies in order...get to know the kids when they are younger... seeing how Harry is treated at home creates a more sympathetic appeal and helps to explain his passive nature and insecurities.
    a series like that, its important to remember, isnt 8 separate stories...its one story broken into 8 parts...so watching from the beginning is important for continuity as well as character development.

    Interestingly I enjoyed the first 5 Harry Potter’s but then they all just kinda merged into one long boring meh for me.

    I can see that - I don't care for Book 5 as much, Book 6 I enjoy. Book 7 was a good read first time through, but she got GRRM disease and tried to cram too much into it.

    I love all the books. 5 is extremely long, but since I love the world so much, I don't mind hanging out in it longer than normal. Like it is with most books, a lot of the side stuff in the longer books is tougher to swallow. Book 5 is especially guilty of this. There is an entire major subplot that the movie doesn't even mention.

    Book 5 makes me physically sick. Seriously. The way that Umbridge treats Harry, and Minister Fudge, etc - reading effects me so much I get ill.

    Going on forever is not really the problem. I am happy about that. The problem is making sure that you don't churn and burn. You do that, you will get movie fatigue and nobody will care about the brand. All I have heard for the last 4 years is there will be Super Hero burnout. Yet, if a movie is good fans are still seeing them.

    Same goes with Star Wars. If they don't want to ruin it, take your time, make a quality product and I could care less how many movies they make. Seeing Star Wars movies is still "an event". Just don't screw it up by releasing two movies a year with 3 TV Shows all at the same time or you will.
