Do you like Harry Potter? I do like him a lot, I mean not the actor himself that much but Harry Potter's story :-) If there is one book/movie I really enjoy it is Harry Potter.
I actually never read the books, but a friend gave me a set of Harry Potter audio books and that's how I became a fan. I used to put audio book CD on and carry on with my daily activities while it was playing in the background almost all day long. Sometimes I even didn't try to listen at all, but still a lot stayed in. I was listening to the books for months before I've seen the movies. I enjoyed them too and now have watched them all few times. I think they are brilliantly made (the special effects and digital post production are awesome) and they relate pretty well what I imagined when I was listening to the books.
I like Harry Potter because it transports me to another time and place. It creates a world separate from the one we live in, the world I can escape to and join in on adventures with the famous trio - Harry, Ron and Hermione. I get to jump into a world of magic :-) The world of magic expands the possibilities and alters the rules of the Universe. And it allows you to think out of the box. It's fascinating, unpredictable and stimulates your imagination. That's what I like about Harry Potter. If you haven't read the books yet I can recommend them highly. It doesn't mean you will like them as much as I do (Anna doesn't like them at all for example) but it is certainly worth giving them a try.
Harry Potter also touches some very important issues from friendship and loyalty, class division, death and mortality and of course good vs. evil. And it deals with those issues in a very clever straightforward way that doesn't overwhelm you.
You can imagine how happy I was when I had a chance to ride Harry Potter's broom at Warner Bros Studio Tour :-) Very happy :-) Well... as you probably suspect it wasn't a real broom ride, but good enough to make me happy. In the movie below you can see how it was made. You can say now that your dad is a wizard ;-)
I am your dad Atria.
