I must confess I'm counting the days
I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and everytime a new book or movie comes out I suddenly turn 12.
I think I'll be going on sunday. Finally, I'm going to get those cheese nachos I've been craving since I got pregnant!
I'm also a HUGE harry potter fan.. I know what you mean about turning 12 again!!! I want to go see it, but right now there are so many other movies that look so good, and all of the showings of HP for this week are sold out!!! My boss is going to be renting out a theater in two weeks for her son's birthday, and we are going to have a private screening of it anyway, so I'm not in a big rush to see it right away. (I know, the boy sounds spoiled, but really he's a sweetie, and he's earned this big birthday bash!!!!) I've heard that this one is more similar to the book because it had a different director. I guess this new director is British, so he picked up on certain characteristics of the books that the other two directors (who were american and mexican) didn't really get. I hope it's better than the prisoner of azkaban; both me and my brother were so dissappointed with that movie
I heard this director really got the boarding school feeling.
I do have to say I was a bit disappointed at #3 even though the director was a fellow Mexican. I had the feeling I was watching the movie in fast forward. As much as I think Alfonso Cuaron is a wonderful director, he didn't really get that british feeling that I get from reading the books. Neither did, Chris Columbus, IMO. Maybe a British director will be a huge plus this time. From what I've seen in trailers and behind the scenes programs it seems to be very faithful to the book.

I loved it!
It was also a bit too fast like #3, but just at the beginning. I think this time they did a great job putting the whole book on 2+ hours. There were some things I would have liked to see (like the story of Barty Crouch Jr's imprisonment in Azkaban and how he escaped, the whole house elf thing and the story of Rita Skeeter being able to turn into a bug) but it's understandable that things not essential to the development of the story have to go.
I really, really liked it and I do recommend it.
You know, everytime I finish a new HP movie or book, I get withdrawal symdrome. I need more!
Actually, we did go and see it this afternoon......
I definately liked it better than the last one. I liked the big bubble bath that Harry had! And I think that Myrtle is hillarious!
I can't believe how old the characters are beginning to look though; although, it was 4 years ago when the Sorcerer's Stone came out!!!! It is crazy......
Loved Harmione's dress though!
It really did have more of a British mood to it, so that was good.
The only thing I didn't like, but there is no way for it to be helped, is that it was all plot- no character development. A lot of the relationships between characters just didn't seem to make it- like Harry's relationship to Moody, Hermione's with Krum, Ron's with Hermione. Where was Percy???? I didn't like that Fleur was made out to be a weak princessy girl who couldn't manage things; in the book she was 'princessy' but she was strong and could hold her own.
But, it was a brilliant movie! Much better than Prisoner of Azkaban!
