Rutabaga Posted March 18, 2022 Report Share Posted March 18, 2022 To properly commemorate getting my big TV system in the living room hooked up and working again, I decided to watch both Part 1 and Part 2 of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," based on the seventh and last book in the J.K. Rowling series. Emboldened by this, I went back and watched the first film, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" (known as the "Sorcerer's Stone" in the U.S.). I had forgotten what an adorable kid Daniel Radcliffe was at that age, with his "say cheese" grin, and how bratty Hermione (Emma Watson) was. Seems like I will have to carry on with the second film, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," which has a number of very funny bits in it. And so on. I admit it . . . I am a Harry Potter fan. I liked the books and the movies. I also have all the books in the American audiobook versions, read by actor Jim Dale. It's strange, though -- people I meet either also are at least familiar with Harry Potter stories, or have had no exposure to them at all and don't know what I'm talking about when I refer to a story element. I'm not sure if it's because they think it's all too juvenile for them, or they resist anything that smacks of fantasy, or what. Obviously they don't know what they're missing! 😁 OK, so it's a guilty pleasure. At least there is no prospect of going blind, or growing hair on my hand. R Quote Link to comment
