Potter Preview available onlineThe moment that die hard Harry Potter fans have been awaiting is just about here. The final installment of the Harry Potter movies is upon us with its worldwide release scheduled for next month.

In the meantime, you can whet your appetite for all things Potteresque by checking out the preview of The Deathly Hallows Part II online. The exciting preview gives you a taste of what is to come when the movie is released on July 15.

Fans have been growing up with Harry since he first burst onto the screens as a cherub faced kid back in 2001. Ten years on, we are preparing to see the final movie released – The Deathly Hallows Part II.

The actors, director and producers of Part II are ensuring that the franchise goes out with a bang bigger than a potions session with Professor Snape could produce. Much of Part II is devoted to the Battle of Hogwarts with Voldemort in his final push for supremacy pitted against Harry and the Order of the Phoenix. Read More

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, UK / USA, 2010

Directed by David Yates

Harry Potter is one of the most successful franchises in film history. I’ll admit right away that I have never picked up a Harry Potter novel. By the same token, I have seen every one of the Harry Potter movies. I guess that shows where my loyalties lie, or maybe I’m just too lazy to read anymore. Adaptations are pretty common these days in Hollywood, and with more and more epics being put on the big screen, there may be a problem with sacrificing a little too much for “literary integrity” at the expense of a complete film. Up until now, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 has grossed over $400 million at the box office worldwide (the number six opening weekend of all time) and will certainly be among the top films in earnings history, but is this film really that good, or are we just falling victim to “completism”?

Going in, it was no secret that this film is just a prelude to the real final chapter of the Harry Potter story, but I resent the fact that one can’t seem to enjoy this film on its own. Instead, it has to be viewed as just an episode. Read More
