Joanna’s Note: Ah, Harry Potter, so the end really has come. The final movie in the series about a boy wizard’s quest to defeat a dark lord opened this weekend. I have yet to see Deathly Hallows. I’m waiting for the more dedicated fans of the franchise than myself to see the movie and mope about how the defining pop culture moment of their childhood is ending. (I’m just being overly cynical to mask my pain.)
I asked my friend Nicole, who you may remember from a certain Criterion Collection inspired vlog, write about her experience a very proud, card-carrying member of Pottermania. It is safe to say that she loves the beloved series far more than I do, or at least she is willing to dedicate far more time to it. That includes going to checking out the red carpet for Deathly Hallow’s NYC premiere and going to the movie’s midnight screening.
