I love everything that 'Harry Potter' stands for — courage through adversity, finding the strength within, the power of love and the bonds of friendship, and faith, above all, faith that when the chips are really down, you’ll have the power to conquer any obstacle because of the faith you have in yourself. I did immensely savor this epic finale to a fantastical fantasy saga. The ending was poignant and hard earned by our beloved characters and it was a final installment filled with all the magic and adventure we love in our 'Harry Potter' films.
As far as spin-offs go, if they’re done right then this writer is all for them. Does it bode well then that Xerxes has been re-titled by Warner Bros. and is now 300: Battle of Artemisia? If you look at it from a branding perspective, most likely this new title is better for the 300 franchise since it obviously links the semi-prequel with the smash hit original 300 starring Gerard Butler.
Millions of fans are eagerly awaiting the next installment in the Twilight Saga with baited breath.

When I was a kid there was one word that had the power to transport me to another time when swords, barbarians and evil kings ruled the world, and a valor-loving Crom was the god of all. That one word was Conan. Now this hit classic from 1982 that made Arnold a megastar is being remade and Jason Momoa is set to become Conan the Barbarian for this new millennium.
It has been hailed as the end of an era. It is definitely this generation’s Star Wars, and now, one of the most anticipated endings of all time is coming to theaters July 15, 2011.
It’s the final showdown between our hero Harry Potter, a boy we’ve watched grow up before our very eyes and evolve into the greatest wizard there ever was, the Chosen One. His arch nemesis, the Dark Lord Voldemort, an evil villain unlike any other, and one of both literature’s and film’s most memorable of malevolent adversaries.
So I was revisiting Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life the other day, a flick where Angelina Jolie searches for the legendary Pandora’s Box, and something tickled my brain and gave me pause. I found it interesting that both in the age of antiquity and in some of the minds of modern day, women are the vehicles responsible for the fall of man. Of course we all know the original sin story of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden and the snake and apple. It is probably the most famous of all 'women are the root of all evil' stories. I think there is even a creation movie lost somewhere in the Hollywood archives depicting this cataclysmic moment in time.
