Spoiler Alert: If you aren't familiar with the end of the Harry Potter series, stop reading this.

I am a huge Star Wars fan. Unfortunately, I had the rotten luck of being born in 1985, too late to see any of the original films in the theater. Everyone tells me how awesome it was -- how people were hooting and hollering when Luke blew up the Death Star, the collective gasp when Vader revealed he was Luke's father, watching Han Solo get frozen in carbonite. And yeah, I saw all the "special editions" in the theater when they were released in 1997, but the enthusiasm (from what I've been told, anyway) didn't come close to what it was decades earlier.

I was always annoyed that I missed out on those initial Jedi antics on the big screen. What's great, though, is that it doesn't matter anymore. Why? Because my generation has its own billion-dollar franchise to fawn over. When 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2' leaves theaters for good, I will finally have my own set of films to brag about. It's too bad for anyone who will be born at the end of 2011 or later: You have no idea what you missed! It was awesome! You weren't there, you wouldn't understand!
