Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. LOVED IT!!!

Don't you love my eyes?

The Kid had an FFA meeting Friday morning, so we weren’t able to make it to the midnight viewing of the new Harry Potter movie.  Instead, I bought tickets (two weeks in advance) for Friday night at the new IMAX theatre (in 3D!!!). 

Wowza!  I can’t tell you how awesome it was!!!  I laughed.  I cried.  I raved at the world.  And I left the theater satisfied.  Of course if the next viewing had not been sold out, I definitely would have grabbed the other three people I was with and headed back in to watch it again.

Even though I already did the video marathon, I’ve pulled out the books and The Kid and I have decided to reread them.  I know there’s a ton of stuff that was left out of the movies and since I haven’t read the final book since it was released (read it in 6 hours right after the midnight release, then reread it slower), I’m sure I’ll be surprised a time or two.

The Kid is headed off to camp again and I promised him I’d wait til he gets back to watch the movie again.  So until then, I’ll print my Harry Potter picture and lurk on YouTube as people post videos like the one below… :)

I loved the movie! I loved Ron and Hermione's kiss. It was beyond well done!

I totally agree, Christine!!! I would have posted that one but couldn't find one that would let me embed the link...

I enjoyed the movie but some of the stuff they left out I was really disapopinted with. :(

I think out of the entire movie franchise, I enjoyed "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1" the best. They left out the least amount of stuff in it.

Oh! And I'm rereading Deathly Hallows again myself! :D

I'm SO jealous. I wanted to see this SOOO bad. :) I hope to make it next week.

I went on Friday night at the IMAX as well. It was awesome! Oh to write such a wonderful, magical tale.

Hey Bryonna! I agree. There were a bunch of threads I would have loved to have seen on the big screen. I was actually kind of surprised though when I reviewed 1-7a. I guess I have a really good imagination because I honestly thought there were a few things in the movies that weren't... The Omni oculars and the Vila were one of them... I could totally picture those.

I DID not like the part with the naked Hermione and Harry in part 1 though... That really made me go eewwww.... The rest was great. :)

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Hey Ciara!!! I will go with you!!!!!! :) The Kid and I are planning to go again. I honestly loved it that much… Maybe I just am not ready for it to end…

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Kathi!!! I know!!! I am ready to write the next big one. In fact my husband keeps asking me why I don’t. Don’t you wish it was that simple…

IMAX was AWESOME! Definitely going to see it one more time on the big, big screen before it moves on.

Thanks for stopping by!
