Why it’s okay to like Harry Potter

Last week, I watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt 2 (which I’ve also heard referred to as ‘arry Potter 7.5). The story made no sense to me, and I couldn’t understand anything anyone was saying because of the British accents.

At first, I assumed that the problem was that I hadn’t seen the other movies, but upon talking to my Harrytard friends (is that offensive? I should’ve called them Potterheads), I realized that I have in fact seen all of the movies, and I already knew plenty of the back story. The plot just didn’t make any sense.

But I digress! I actually do like Harry Potter. I am a weight lifting, combat sporting, motorcycle riding, bacon eating guy, and I think Harry Potter is an okay series of movies for the following reasons:

  1. Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, and sometimes, Luna Lovegood.
    Add to cart!
  2. Alan Rickman as Severus Snape.
    Have you ever seen the Family Guy clip about Alan Rickman’s answering machine? Brilliant!
  3. Wizards eat like pigs
    Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and think about the mountains of ice cream, giant bowls of jello, and copious pies and cakes from Half-blood Prince.

So ya, that’s about it. I feel like I could probably post a series of articles about specific problems I have with Harry Potter storylines, but I’ve got a long list of higher priority things I wanted to gripe about like Lord of the Rings.
