Harry Potter

About 3-4 years ago I discovered the most amazing books and movies in the whole wide world, and those are Harry Potter. There is 7 books and 8 movies and I love every single one of them. They are about this boy named Harry and he discovers that he is a wizard and it’s basically the story of his life at Hogwarts (a school for wizards). There he battles against other wizards, dragons, plays quidditch, and makes some potions. He does it all with his loyal, caring, and best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. If you have not read the books or seen the movies I would recommend that you start with the books, they’re so amazing. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE start with the first book or movie because if you don’t it’s just gonna be a huge disaster and you’re not gonna understand anything and you’re gonna hate it. Trust me, that happened to my cousin and some of my friends, and don’t skip any!!! They are all very important. Those books/movies are so amazing, I’ve never read/seen anything like that, they are so original and such a unique story, after you read the books or see the movies you’re gonna want to be a wizard, it’s just so magical and fun. That’s a completely different world. The first Harry potter book (Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone) was first published in June 26, 1997 and the first movie was released in November 14, 2001. The last Harry Potter (Harry Potter and the deathly hallows) book was published in July 21, 2007 and the last movie part 1 was released in November 19, 2010 and part 2 in July 11, 2011 in New York city. You honestly need to read the books or see the movies (I would recommend you read the books first).


Snape Death

By: Vyolette

In the movie Harry Potter, almost everyone’s favorite character dies an intense death. Today, Severus Snape, Alan Rickman the actor that plays Severus, died at the age of 69. He had been battling pancreatic cancer and lost the fight. This is an especially sad death for his newer generation of fans, the fans of Harry Potter books, including my sister.  The actor is leaving behind heartbroken family, friends, and fans. Although Alan never won an Oscar, he did win a BAFTA Award for supporting actor in “Robin Hood” and another 3 awards for his characters in the movies “Sense and Sensibility” and “Truly Madly Deeply”. Richman was born in 1946 to a working class family in the west of London. He was interested in acting, studied graphic design in college and at one point opened a graphic design studio with his friends. Alan Richman fans lost a part of their hearts today Thursday, January 14th, 2016. In remembrance of this amazing and influential actor, lets all pick up our favorite Harry Potter book or movie and really appreciate the work of an actor transforming a character from page to reel.
