Addendum to my previous post

By night I’m a mild mannered author. By day I’m a Personal Trainer and Martial Artist. Today I was talking with some PT clients about this whole Harry Potter phenomenon. They went to see the movie the same night that I did and we started chatting about it. They haven’t read any of the books, so their entire Harry Potter experience is through the films. The film to them was really quite opaque and they were confused about a number of things. So, while I maintain that it’s not a bad movie, I think it’s only a good movie as a supplement to the books. In the previous post I said that the movie was worth a look if you’re a fan. I should qualify that and say it’s worth a look if you’re a fan of the books.

Now will everyone please stop going on about Harry Potter! (The final book is released today. Please make it the last one.)

  1. Oh and the movie was a vapid pile of garbage, useful only in the sense that it articulated, visually, the imagery the books established.
