The Latest Harry Potter Flick

Went out w/ the wife last night to have some dinner w/ some friends and go to the movies.

Since we decided for a 7:45 showing, I went online and ordered tickets. Good thing too. By the time we got to the theater, a half hour before the show, it was practically sold out. We had to stand in the lobby (which was packed) until about 5 minutes before the start time since they were running showings that close together.

The movie was good. Special effects were typical of the series. Very dark and lots of action w/ a good 'cliffhanger' scene. I should note that I have NOT read the books and won't until after the last movie comes out. Due to that, I had to have my wife explain some events and terms they used in the film that they didn't provide any background info for and weren't in the previous movies. They did use some of that bouncy camera crap for the chase scenes though but not too much.

I'm looking forward to the finale.

My wife took her granddaughter to see it yesterday. They're both big HP fans, and it gave me time to finish some floor refinishing!

For the finale, Potter goes into witness protection, changes his last name to Dresden, and moves to Chicago.

Hey there,

I was wondering if you might be interested in my latest post....

Billll: 10 points for you.

I've referred to Dresden as the Harry the Wizard for adults.
