Is it sad I have been secretly waiting for this thread!!

However, no midnight showing for me for the first time for the past 5 movies... Quarter systems for me means I have finals Friday and Saturday. But I will be seeing it in IMAX Saturday night and I cannot wait!

No, I've secretly been hoping for it too!!! I am a total HP dork, but I would never dress up. I'm still debating on what day I want to go.

The books are my favorites and I've probably read each one at least a million times. I just don't care much for the movies though. Like most books made into movies, these aren't as faithful to the books as I'd like them to be.

To everyone that's going to the midnight screening though, have fun!

:thumbup: to this post. I am a huge HP nerd too, but I can hold off seeing it till this weekend or next. But I've never dressed up, maybe next year, ha.

I've also read the books multiple times (on paper and the audiobooks :cool: I commute to work daily and it's pretty entertaining)

I've read all the books a few times, and had seen up to the third movie. I couldn't get through the fourth and didn't bother to watch the fifth or sixth movie. At my friend's insistence, I went out to see this one.

It was good in the fact that it stuck closer to the books(from what I remember anyways), but it seemed to drag in parts. Anyone else think that? Overall, I left much more inspired to see the last part than not, which it what they were aiming for I think. :p

My wife teases me about not watching them unless coerced. She gets particularly frustrated when a Harry Potter joke or Twilight reference goes over my head and I'm left asking what they were talking about. I was given a "dementor" (Polly-pop draped in black tissue paper) from a kid during Halloween. Turns out everyone around me knew what a dementor was except me. After having watched a few more of the movies from both blockbuster series I realized I enjoyed HP more than Twilight. Primarily because I was expecting good acting in Twilight however I was let down whereas HP I had no expectations from pre-pubescent teens so it wasn't a let down, I expected the bad acting. And I laugh as I imagine Severis Snape falling from the 30th floor of Nakatome Plaza Building. I do love the scenery of HP, id love to get lost in the hills of Hogwarts. Are DOs recognized as physicians in the UK yet?

Twilight is NOT as good as harry potter... ugh twilight, vomit...

The new movie is SOOO good, for the record, if there are parents out there, see it first on your own, then decide if you think your kids should see it. It's quite a bit darker (as it should be) than the last movie (which should not have been PG), and the opening scenes could be traumatic for littler kids...

This is so true... The little boy sitting next to my boyfriend was pretty much traumatized when Dobby died.. Granted I did tear up a bit, but he was bawling.
