Series Spotlight: Harry Potter

Hey guys! In honor of the final movie’s release, I decided to round up some of my favorite Harry Potter related articles and videos and post them for you.

First of all, I’ve talked about the series quite a lot on the blog, so to see the archive of my posts (mostly talking about some of the different characters), click here.

Next, one of my biggest pet peeves is people trying to ban the series or thinking that the books teach children witchcraft and evil-doings. Don’t even get me started. One of my favorite articles is on The Onion’s website, Harry Potter Books Spark Rise in Satanism Among Children. You should definitely read it if you want to have a laugh!

I haven’t ever been interested in reading any of the professional reviews of the books, but Stephen King wrote an excellent article after the publication of the last book I think is worth checking out.

Next up is an awesome video done to the music of Firework by Katy Perry:

Here is a really well done series overview video:

Okay, now I’m about to show how mean I can be. I watch this video a lot when I’m in the mood to laugh – check out this guy spoiling the ending of the sixth book to people waiting at midnight to buy it (the very end is the best part):

And finally…the following picture which I saw on Frenetic Reader the other day:

Until the very end indeed.

Anyway, sniffle, hope you guys enjoyed! Feel free to link me to your favorite HP related pics/videos/articles! Hope everyone enjoys the movie, I’ll be off to see it at midnight on Thursday!

    I won’t be seeing it at midnight. :[
    I just read the whole series in the last month and wow. I had read the first 5 but had never finished them and now I’m so sad its over.

    And I had heard about the video of the guy spoiling the ending, but I hadn’t seen it. I giggled lol

    Oh my goodness!!! Thank you so much for sharing these. My absolute favorite was the pensive one. Did you see the ‘Filmography 2010’ by the same person. Fantastic stuff!

    OK Really, that spoiler video isn’t funny at all. Not just because it’s never funny to ruin stuff like that, but because the REACTIONS would have been the funny part. And he just drove off and only got one reaction.
