|Well the movies ... they aren't all that good in my opinion. Sure, I have watched them and they were fun, but in the "hey I remember reading that part!" kinda way. The movies really do no justice to the books, but do they ever, really?
The books do get better after the first 2, but the overall theme stays the same ... it is the good versus evil, innocence versus guilty, love versus hate thing. The theme itself is pretty cut and dry. And JKR was modelling the series after the older boarding school stories, so the fact that there is a strong parallel there isn't really surprising.
After book 2, the series strays from the "start a story at the beginning of the book and it is solved in the second to last chapter" thing, and goes more into the continuation between books thing. (Sorry for my lack of terminology ... I've never gone into English study past English 110 in university). There are portions of one book that are not solved or understood until one or two books later.
