Maybe I should have waited..
I took a break from trying to come up with many, many words and arranging them in some order for the world's worst novel to go and see the new Harry Potter movie. I've read the book. The only surprises were where the movie veered away from the book (and every time I felt a little disappointed although the movie was really very good and close enough that if I hadn't just re-read the book I might not have even noticed).
I learned two things:
And of all that was left out, I really wish Dudley's shaking hands with Harry before they left had been included in the movie.
And on an unrelated note: Harry Potter's five o'clock shadow was a little disconcerting. Not anything like the first time Taylor Lautner ran across the screen without his shirt on, but still, it was surprise, you know? I have no idea why. I'm glad I read the book. The ending of this one might have been crushing without the knowledge that it's only the beginning. I'll start counting the days until the next one. Anybody want to get in line with me now?
