This summer has been a bad one for movies. That is true most summers, but in this long, hot one, movies seem worse, dominated by super-hero, 3-D blockbuster sequels (or prequels) for children.

Those blockbusters seem too big, too noisy, and too in love with special effects to be interesting. I’ve avoided them, but I finally did go to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

I knew that the fuss came mainly from the adolescents who had grown up with Harry. I saw my first, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, back in the summer of 2007 on vacation at Rehoboth with my two oldest grandchildren — now in college.
