I feel like a mini, mini chapter of my life just closed.
I’m inclined to think that it was good. Largely because it’s the final one. After a decade of Harry Potter, we’re finally at the last. It’s like I grew up with the movie, as many others did. I think for many, it was a large part of their lives. Harry Potter fanatics, book or movie. I’m not much of a Harry Potter fan. But I watched every movie there was.
Actually, I forgot most parts in between. Because honestly, who in the world remembers the content of a series that began 10 years ago (again, I’m not a HP fan, so I could be wrong)?
Still, this last one was a must-watch. It was such a must-watch, that I ended up sitting through the entire movie while in the first row. First row. A recurring thought during the movie: Who the hell pays this much to crane their neck for 2 hours?
Still, I did it. There were moments when I wanted to just get up and move to the back and sit on the stairs for the rest of the movie. But I didn’t. Because of social norms.
2 hours and 10 minutes later.
Goodbye, Harry Potter & friends. You were a source of entertainment for 10 years.
P.S. If you ever want to catch a movie in 3D, but think that paying for a 3D ticket (given the current state of 3D movies, i.e. sucky) is silly, sit in the first row. I felt like I flew through the rides together with the characters during the action-packed parts of the show.
