    Took my little guy to see it last night. A much darker Hogwarts.... They did a very good job, although I wouldn't have minded a bit more emphasis on characterization of other characters besides Harry. I guess with the film at over 3 hours without the additional storylines, something had to get cut. Personally, I wouldn't have minded another hour....but maybe that's just me.

    A nice addition to the franchise, albeit one that acts as a transitional tale that hits the high points but misses the depth of the book.

    We're going to see it Tomorrow at an IMAX. I'm so looking forward to it. Have you ordered book 7 yet?

    I heard the final fight sequence is amazing on IMAX! It was pretty impressive even on a normal screen.

    Two copies of book 7 (one for me, one for the little guy) reserved and ready to be picked up at midnight on Friday! Yay!!!

    As much as I'm looking forward to the book, I'm very sorry that's going to be it for the series.

    I'm getting mine at Powell books in Downtown Portland. It's called the 'City of Books'. It's 5+ stories tall and takes up and entire city block. I can spend days just wandering and still want to go back. They will be having a huge party starting at 10pm. They will start handing out the books at Midnight. I'm so excited. We are getting 3 copies. The boys do better when they have copies of their own while we read it. I'm so excited.

    Cool! Sounds like a great place. I tried to get my son to go to the party at the Scholastic Store in Soho, but he doesn't like crowds. :rolleyes:

    Did you enjoy the film?

    Waiting for your review. ;)

    We're heading out in a few hours. We have 8pm tickets it turns out. Thankful that I got them ahead of time. I heard they are sold out for the day.
