Just finished the series. Oof, both Deathly Hallows movies are fucking heavy. So much going on, so much to take in. That epilogue still ruins me.

I started again with this series. I saw the first two back in the day, in the theatre and never continued with it.
Yesterday i saw Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban.

I enjoyed it, its a fine movie, with great performances from Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman and David Thewlis. Was it amazing? Not really.
A few very cool scenes (the best one was the bus ride) but thats about it. Hope the series picks up from here...but im guessing this fandom is similar to the Star Wars one. Im in the SW camp and im not sure the next movies will change that.

What's a good age to start the books? I was thinking of getting my 9 year old niece the first book for Christmas.

I never got into HP, but I've only every heard good things, and I imagine this is how it'll eventually come back around: if any of my kids are interested in it, I think it'll be fun to read with them or to read it side-by-side. My daughter is only 3 but I already enjoy breaking down movies and books with her, it'll be great when she's older and we can get into more complex stuff.

My boy is 7 and he doesn't read these yet although we have read the first book to him and his 3 yo sister (slightly edited). He has watched the first one too.

9 is probably about right to start reading it by themselves.

I don't consider myself a Potter fan, but the HP series is considerably better than SW.

Prisoner of Azkaban
Deathly Hallows: Part 2
Half-Blood Prince
Goblet of Fire
Order of the Phoenix
Sorcerer’s Stone
Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Chamber of Secrets

Chamber of Secrets is the only HP movie I think is legitimately not at least "good."

The last stretch, when Harry realizes he had to help himself, and then getting the broom from Sirius. Kills me every time.

For what it’s worth, I didn’t love the movies the first time around.
