Year Six, and there’s a sense of an ending at Hogwarts—and not just because Ron plays his last game of Quidditch. Harry Potter is growing up, dealing with facial hair and passes from a comely café waitress. Indeed, romantic entanglements almost take precedent over Harry’s quest for Voldemort’s weak spot. This should suit his more hormonal fan-base fine. Unbelievers may find it all a tad talky until Bellatrix Lestrange shows up to prove that evil’s playing for keeps. Roll on The Deathly Hallows!
Extras: Deleted scenes, a doc on author J.K. Rowling‘s hectic life, and a teaser for the big two-part finale.
