Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II Leaves Fan Completely Satisfied

I first met Harry Potter when I was nine-years old during reading-time in my fourth grade class. For me, it was love at first sight, and I’m sure Harry would have felt the same if he were not a fictional character.  The story of a boy who was around my age but had to face dragons, monsters, and a mass murderer within his first year deeply enthralled me, and although he certainly was much braver than I was, I felt a connection to Harry because we both had a very cruel and scary teacher (I referred to my teacher as “Snape” behind his back for the rest of my elementary school career).

Flash forward a few years and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was in the movie theaters. Ever since the first movie, I have been in line on the opening day (or at midnight, as the movies progressed) in order to watch my beloved characters fight evil while also having a few laughs along the way. So, obviously, as soon as I got off work on July 14, 2011, I headed to my local theater and joined the hundreds of other people who were standing in line, waiting to get a good seat for the premiere of the final Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows, Part II.

Larry Crowne Offers a Different View of Higher Education

It’s a common story that is becoming more and more common these days: a hardworking man who has been loyal to his place of employment loses his job due to budget cuts. Desperate to improve his station in life, the man decides to pursue a higher education in hopes that this will allow him to find another job and maybe even improve his overall quality of life. Since this is somewhat of a new trend in today’s workforce and education frontiers, it only makes sense that Tom Hanks‘ and Julia Roberts‘ new movie, Larry Crowne, would address this subject.

In Larry Crowne, Hanks portrays the title character, a hardworking man who loses his job at a Wal-Mart-like store. After sitting around his home for a few days, he decides to enroll in an economic and pubic speaking course at his local community college. Roberts plays one of Larry’s teachers, Mercedes Tianot. However, Mercedes dislikes being a teacher and it is quite obvious that she has other things she would rather do than teach a public speaking course, as evidenced by her temporary thrill when she thinks her class only has nine students and, therefore, does not meet the school’s enrollment requirements. As the movie progresses, Larry must learn to overcome his age difference from the other students. It is the relationships that form between Larry, Mercedes, and the other students that keeps this movie interesting.

Bad Teacher Doesn’t Live Up to Its Potential

If you have seen a movie about a teacher lately, it most likely follows one of these plot lines:

1. The teacher is completely devoted to his/her students and is saintly in his/her pursuit of bettering the students in their academic lives or their personal lives. (Think: The Freedom Writers).

2. The teacher is a goofball whose heart is actually in the right place and ends up helping his/her students even though there are some funny antics along the way. (Think: School of Rock).

However, you most likely haven’t seen a movie where the teacher really is just a bad teacher and her character does not change or refine her ways throughout the movie. Well, if you want to see a movie like that, I would recommend you go see Bad Teacher, which stars Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, and Jason Segel.
