Harry Potter 5


After a lot of emailing, online ticket buying not working, panicking over sold out theaters, we finally got tickets for Harry Potter at the midnight showing.

We got to the theater 45 minutes before it started and almost couldnt find two seats together. The movie was supposed to start at midnight, but the reel broke. And after 30 minutes of people booing and hissing, and 300 people doing the wave, the movie finally started at 12:30....and did Not disappoint from the first minute to the last minute.

If you are a fan of Harry Potter, which I am, you should have already seen it.

I just saw Daniel Radcliffe on Larry King live, and I guess the stats have come out from the midnight show. At that one showing, HP5 made 12 million dollars. FROM ONE SHOW!!! Insane. but it was so worth it. I guess its on its way to breaking box office records, if it hasnt done so already.

Anyway, without giving away the movie.....for those of you who havent read the book, it was incredible. INCREDIBLE!!!! And for those of you who have read the book, what they did, was awesome. Although, the didnt include the St. Mungos bit of the book, where they go visit Mr. Weasley....I was kind of disappointed about that....I was looking forward to seeing Gilderoy again. LOL!!!

I can't wait to see this movie. I am waiting until the hype at the box offices go down though so that I can see the movie with out being in a crowded room. I don'w like crowds like that. So, a few more days and I'll go see it. Maybe on Sunday.

I thought it was by far the best HP movie yet. The first two movies were good, but a little slow and drawn out. Installments 3 and 4 were too frantic and long. This one was the perfect length and the perfect pace and the perfect amount of dark and wonderful. And, considering how much they had to cut out of the book I think they did an amazing job with it. Bravo!

harry potter is a marketing gimmick and ya'll are fools.

A marketing gimmick? Boy, you done lost your mind! The movies are as marketing focused as any other. But, the books - those have actual merit. I say, don't knock it until you read it. I thought it was child's play myself until some friends convinced me to give it a try. In a way I was right, but in other ways I was missing out on a lot of interesting reading.

I haven't read any of the potter books, and I only saw the movies after they came out on HBO. I don't know if I really want to drag myself to the theater (after I spend so much money this summer already).

Though I have recently read The Golden Compass (children's fantasy like potter that Adults can get into), which was pretty good and the movie is coming out soon, so I'm excited for that.

yeah, the movie totally rocked. I really want to go see it again.
