No spoilers here….
We saw the 5th Harry Potter movie today! I liked it, though Joe was disappointed. It did seem to jump around a lot and not fully explain things at all. You should rewatch at least the fourth movie if you’re a casual fan of the movies. If you’ve read the 5th book recently (or more times than you’d like to admit, ahem), then you won’t have trouble following it. I have a feeling there are a ton of deleted scenes that would really help things flow together.
We’re less than a week out from the release of the 7th (and final) Harry Potter book, so this movie was more just a step on the way to that for me.
A few things I did like about the movie… The music was well done – just enough to provide a great tone for the scenes, but not too much to take your attention away from the scenes. There are a lot of romantic hints between the students that were a nice addition. They also had many lines that were direct quotes from the book.
Well, what you’ve all been waiting for! We dressed up and I have pictures! I was Hermione Granger (as I have been for the other movies), and Joe was Alabastor “Mad-Eye” Moody. Check out our costumes from past years if you’d like.
