102 Thoughts I Had Binging All 8 Harry Potter Films On HBO

“Slug horn is the best, don’t even tell me otherwise.”


“Harry Potter” is a classic, consistent staple in my life. I grew up reading these books and watching the movies and waiting anxiously for the next release. The series was my childhood, and it’s still a part of my heart today, even as the originals have finished. Thanks to the fans’ pure dedication, more and more pieces from the magical world keep coming out. They are in the form of in-universe movies and plays.

However, as great and addicting as the movies are, it’s hard to find a time to sit through an entire movie marathon of them. I’ve only been able to do it once completely so far. It took nearly 24 hours. With my sister, we glued ourselves to the couch and were dedicated enough not to stop except for bathroom breaks and food. And we live-tweeted. All. Eight. Movies. Here are some of the thoughts I’ve had, along with some added extras. I bet you could relate to at least some of them.

1. "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"

i. “Harry Potter getting the Cinderella treatment.”

ii. “Pretty sure no one lets a 10-year-old handle the bacon.”

iii. “When owls attack.”

iv. “Sometimes when the first letter doesn’t work, you just gotta try again...and again...and again...”

v. “Harry’s so overcome with joy, he doesn’t realize he could just pick a letter up from the ground.”

vi. “Whatever happened to the pig tail?”

vii. “Dragon Alley’s so bright and colorful.”

viii. “Did no one else hear Mrs. Weasley loudly talk about Muggles and Platform Nine and Three Quarters?”

ix. “Baby trio...so much potential...so much sass.”

x. “Who knew Harry’s scar was burning because of Quirrell’s turban and not Snape giving him the creepy eye?”

xi. “Voldemort drinking unicorn blood... that’s kid movie material, right?”

xii. “Baby Neville had so much potential from the start.”

xiii. “When Dumbledore acts so genuine when he praises Slytherin, but then does a double take and awards Gryffindor all the points so they can win.”

2. “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”

i. “Damn puberty done Harry good.”

ii. “And comes with a lot more sass.”

iii. “I’ll be in my bedroom, making no noise and pretending I don’t exist....years later, it becomes a meme.”

iv. “So the actors are like 12-13 so that means puberty for everyone, damn.”

v. “Dobby was so annoying back then.”

vi. “No reasoning or talking before. Just fly the damn car as long as it gets you to Hogwarts.”

vii. “Down with Lockhart.”

viii. “Why is it always me?" - I feel you Neville.

ix. “I felt so bad for Moaning Myrtle.”

x. “Harry stabbed the diary, little did he know that was a piece of Voldemort’s soul.”

iii. “Gone with Malfoy’s slicked hair.”

iv. “Stealing Neville’s lollipop, Harry? JERK.”

v. “This is when the blue shirt started.”

vi. “So if Peter Pettigrew’s name showed up on the map, how did the Weasley twins never question it?”

ix. “I thought this movie was my favorite cause it had so many Harry/Hermione alone time scenes.”

ii. “It’s amazing how much long hair you can grow in that time.”

iii. “Wizards don’t believe in haircuts.”

vi. “Luna is my spirit anima.l”

vii. “Found a new ship: Harry/Luna.”

viii. “Umbridge is probably worse than Voldemort.”
