Harry Potter is TERRIBLE

I finally got around to watching all eight movies. The first two or three are ok but damn do they get dark and boring. And the wizard combat is absolutely moronic. They just keep yelling the same spell over and over.

How the frick was this shit as popular as it was?

    This idea of magical mystery plus british boarding school was very catchy.

    It was for literal children and women (also children). No adult ever thought it was good. This is like hearing adults say that Bluey is pretty tolerable for a children's show and mistaking that for thinking you should actually watch it as a serious endeavor as an adult man.

    Chris Columbus ones are okay but really quite mediocre outside of the cast. Cuaron one Azkaban is pretty good. All movies significantly worse than the books and the final couple are horrible.

    I don't even want to imagine how fricking cucked the remakes will be.

      That was my jizz she wiped off her mouth. In between take I came on her face. She loved it and invited me back to her trailer after we wrapped that day to do it three more times.

          Yes. The next day she let me stretch out her butthole with my thick wiener. Her moans sounded like whimpers and she cried a bit, but she wouldn't let me stop either. Blew a massive load into her ass. She gave me $800 to keep quiet about it. It was all the cash she had on her.

    I still haven't seen any movie after the 4th. The first 3 still remain the best.

    First, you are completely correct objectively. The first 3 are okay childrens fiction but by the fourth they get dumb as frick and the world building falls apart.

    Secondly, you had to grow up with them. If you were 8-12 when the first one came out, they were EVERYWHERE and they had a wonderful sense of the magical and mysterious that I think is lost in the modern world. That kind of thing really appeals to kids. Then you just kinda grew up with the characters and books and as a teen, the mediocrity of the writing and world building is less of an issue. It's no surprise to me that adults find them tedious and kind of poorly written though. You have enough life experience to make that judgement. But for Millennials that grew up with them they will always have a wonderful sense of nostalgia and magic to them.

      >the world building
      There barely was any world building. 90% of the world building was just tongue-in-cheek British humour with magic.

    The books are far better than the films
    The films are a mess with the exception of the first three films although personally I prefer the first two books over the films

    the movies kind of gloss over most of the good parts of the books

    Only women like the story. And gays. Watching the films is not that bad, but if you really think the books are good, you are ultra gay. Even gayer are those who constantly whine how the movies ruined something about their dull gaywizard story.

    First 3 movies were peak escapism, after that it was audiences feeling obligated to watch in conjunction with new books still coming out.

    Congrats on being straight, OP. All the posters saying "You had to be there" are actual homosexuals who liked Harry Potter when it came out. And I don't mean "Haha ur a homosexual." I mean they are literally same-sex attracted gays who had actual gay sex in real life.

    The thing that's easy to forget compared to current big franchises is at the time people were actually reading the source material, it didn't matter so much that the movies were bad because they were supplemental to the books

    Still there were enough movie only people that there was drama over people spoiling that Snape Kills Dumbledore

    Goblet of Fire is the only one with true entertainment value. The first two are fine children's fare, and the third is lauded by midwits who want to seem more mature. The rest are unwatchable.

      Third is my favourite because third book was my favourite back in the day, because I liked the Marauders as characters, and the whole thing with the dementors was really damn cool.
      Only found out later it's also the critics' pick among the 8, so now I look like a complete tool.

      I haven't read the books. Are they worth it or was is all just a 2000's phase?

      They are a bit bland in their prose even by YA standards.

        eh, its far better than the other ya slop of the time like hunger games or pj but yes, its average at best. there are a lot of hp fanfics that are miles ahead of the source material though

    5th grade accelerated reading program in 2001, we read Harry Potter. End of the year when the dvd dropped we got to watch it.

    "You had to be there" is a real sentiment.
