Every time I watch a Harry Potter movie I have found parallels to the rise of Hitler with bits of McCarthyism here and there. This morning I read Dr. Sanity’s comparison between Voldemort’s death eaters and terrorists. I enjoyed the movie on a pure escapism level, but watching it for sociological analogies was reaaally fun. Instead of making Sarah wait to see the movie with her Aunt and Uncle next weekend, I think she should go with her Mom. I really don’t think the movie was too scary for ages 8 and up with the exception of the underwater scene. That scene creeped me out but probably because I have a strong fear of drowning.
