Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

It's been a week since the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," time enough for most fans to get through the book. Nevertheless, I would hate to ruin the fun for anyone, so I've posted my reactions on a back-dated entry so that it won't appear on the top page.

*Spoilers* Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

All is revealed in that post. Consider yourself warned.

With the long-awaited Harry Potter movie and book both behind us, I can't help but feel a bit melancholy. Anticipation is, after all, half the fun of these things. So what can we look forward to now? Well, let's see.

J.K. Rowling has announced she will do a Harry Potter Encyclopedia, and that will be cool. Of course, there are two more movies to go. They're all a long way off, though.

December will see the movie adaptation of "The Golden Compass," the first book of Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy. Done well, that could be amazing. It will definitely cause a stir; if you think the fundamentalists hated Harry, wait until they get a load of this. (Although, the film makers are apparently editing religion out of the story to appease them, which is like editing Voldemort out of Harry Potter, so the whole thing may devolve into a special effects extravaganza.)

In January or February, we get the new season of Lost, finally. And there are a few new TV shows that look promising.

Still. It just ain't the same.

I've seen the trailers for The Golden Compass - it looks like it's well-done. I hope they're not re-writing the story though...
