So, Amy went to see the Harry Potter movie with a friend of hers on opening night. And when I found out Amy was going, I insisted that Brandy and I go too. (To an overlapping showing though, we didn't crowd in on Amy and her friends. :-)
Anyway, I've seen a lot of mixed reviews for this, but I liked it. Yes, there were major parts of the book missing. But it was a long book. Yes, there were some silly parts. But it was fun. It was funny at the right bits and got sad at the right bit, etc.
Could some of it have been better? Sure. Was the book better than the movie. Sure.
But it was a good fun summer movie, and if you watched any of the rest of these, or if you've read the books, then you have to see this, right?
Anyway, none of the Harry Potter movies have been masterpieces, and I'm not sure they even strive for that. But this is one of the better of the bunch so far.
At least I think so.
Amy has already seen it twice.
I think I'll be fine with once.
But I wouldn't have missed it.
