    It shows me a world I didn't know existed - a whole music scene dedicated to Harry Potter emo rock - but doesn't compare with any prior documentaries on fandoms, and is actually quite boring. I really haven't more to say than that; this isn't Trekkies and don't expect to learn much for those sociology/communications/media students out there who need to do a fandom paper and want some references.

    I got bored and tuned out more than once while watching this flick. There were a few really good parts that dealt with issues fans had with Warner Bros over fan sites but then rest of the movie dragged on and really didn't have a direction. The music the bands played was not really all that good and only would appeal to those fans who have let the world of Harry Potter over shadow the real world they live in. Not something to be proud of. Slow documentary that I can recommend to anyone to watch.

    <i>We Are Wizards</i> is an entertainingly enough documentary, but the filmmaker never really seems to decide on one message he wants to say about Harry Potter fans.

    [28th Atlantic Film Festival] Follows the story of Harry Potter die-hard bands. You get Harry and the Potters (band), fansite owners, and all sorts of hypothetically intriguing personalities. I have read the books, watched some of the movies, and generally enjoyed them, so you would think I would be entertained by a film of this nature. Hey, Trekkies worked, right? Unfortunately, as a film, Wizards is a huge failure, and this simply has to lay completely at the feet of director Josh Koury. The good thing is it views its subject matter as people instead of freaks. The downside; this film has absolutely no pacing or continuity at all. It's essentially a sequence of disconnected, seemingly never ending events. They go back, and back, and back, to each person, with little of interest happening. Five times I thought the film was about to end, but then went on another half an hour. The actual ending was also dragged on forever. This was 90 minutes that felt more like 4 hours. I went to this with someone who was an even bigger Potter fan than me, and they felt the same way. I could only recommend this to the absolutely truly hardcore Potter fan. Not worth seeing for the 10-20 minutes of intrigue.
