|last night randall, juju, wes, juju's niece and i went to a midnight showing of harry potter. the theater was packed (there were actually three screens of it, and they were all packed). in order to get good seats we arrived around 10:45. then we had to sit and wait. we were going to play cards (thinking we would be in a line), but it was too difficult to do so while seated. i started to knit a scarf, but somehow missed a big hole at the beginning, so i frogged it and started over. it was just waiting waiting waiting.|
but at midnight the movie started. randall made me switch seats with him, the people on his left were the easily excited mildly chatty type. after we switched they were quiet though.
the new movie is pretty good. it's been a long time since i've read book 4 (not to mention my memory is so poor) that lots of part were a surprise. and i didn't get to notice (like juju) what had been left out. i still think i like movie 3 the best. it had the best overall feel and aesthetic. but this new one is definitely the most epic feeling of them all (even if some parts feel truncated due to the fact that the book is a bajillionty pages long)...but it's probably the most "entertaining" and i can see where it's going to be a lot of people's favorite. also it's really dark, these kids are starting to get old and totally earns that pg-13 rating.
oh and jarvis pulp is in it for about 2 seconds and that was wah! to me.
ps: juju brought mint & orange cream kit kat to the party. the mint is yum yum yum yum yum. now if it was only Dark choco mint...

he and johnny & phil radiohead (and someone else who i can't remember) are the band that plays at the yule ball. he's only in it for about 2 seconds, but they have several songs on the soundtrack.
