And in one of the least surprising results of this year, the last Harry Potter movie just scored the highest-grossing first weekend of all time.
I don't intend to see it. I lost interest in the series after "Prisoner of Azkaban". I bought "Goblet of Fire" but never unwrapped it.
One problem is that reportedly every single male father-figure Harry has ends up dead by violence. With just one exception: Ron's father. Reportedly, she intended to kill him off, too, but just couldn't bring herself to do it.
And maybe Hagrid, too? I see that Robbie Coltrane is in the cast list for the last movie. Does he survive it?
...speaking of endings and spoilers, I haven't been able to find anyone who blogged about the last episode of Anohana, and revealed just what the heck the ghost girl wanted. Anyone care to let me in on it? (With spoiler tags)

The books had a distinctly non-British distrust of authority (it's not going too far to say that the entire thing is a parable for "How Bad People Can Get Control of Government And Screw You"...) Some of that makes for hard reading, though...

I vaguely remember reading that Harry eventually becomes headmaster at Hogworts. Seems to me, though, that he's the perfect choice to be the "Defense against the Dark Arts" professor.
There's a Harry Potter wiki. I should really go get my answers there.

I think David covers the actual ending well, though I think it's implied that Harry would some day take up the headmaster position (if not at the end, then throughout the series - memory is fuzzy on that)...
