Considering the fact that the Harry Potter film franchise—based on the novels of J.K.

Witches (TOP)
The Wicked Witch of The West is the witch who started it all. She defined the term and got the ball rolling. But a lot has changed since 1939. Witches nowadays come in all shapes and sizes.

Published by

J.K. Rowling
Creating a such a successful seven book and eight film-long franchise as Harry Potter makes you a global phenomenon. The pressure must have been intense for author J.K. Rowling, not only in finishing what she had started and meeting the demands of critics and fans, but then the pressure of figuring out what's next. As for the latter, she's written her follow-up to the...

To The Point: Five Problems with Franchise Blockbusters

Published by

Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in The Hunger Games
I liked The Hunger Games. A lot. I have no problem with that. But I think that it's also a film that should be graded on a curve, the franchise/blockbuster curve to which Hollywood seems most comfortable turning everything into (they're trying to make a Horrible Bosses 2). As such, it's worth noting that these films - including...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the long awaited finale is finally here, and though fans will be able to cheer along to the film, my biggest problem is that they won't really be able to cry.
