A global pandemic has left many of us stranded in her homes, conforming to new ways of life. Whether this be the switch to a home workout routine, or the binge watching “binging” of TV shows and movies, life has certainly taken a turn in the entertainment realm.  Shows ranging from “Outerbanks,” a ten episode show traveling through the lives of a group of teenagers in pursuit of a mass amount of money, to “The Office,” a classic comedy show which keeps many hooked despite it being from the early 2000’s keep people drawn in and waiting for more interesting and appealing movies and shows. Recently among teen social media platforms has come the rise of Harry Potter despite its final movie production coming in 2011. This movie series draws in all ages, and consists of 8 movies, roughly with a 3 hour watch time for each.

The 8 titles are Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. Recently I have watched all 8 movies, probably over the span of a couple weeks, and have to admit i’m hooked. The series honestly keeps you moving, almost wanting to just throw the next disk right in to see what happens next. Harry Potter memorabilia has been popping up rapidly as the movie rises in popularity yet again, ranging from collectors book editions with tons of visuals, to Build A Bear outfits which you can take home for yourself. Total profits of all 8 movies are estimated to be nearly 8 billion dollars, with never ending details which make you want to re-watch. Now, make the right move, and get started with them.
