I’ve been working very hard at work. Non-stop for a few weeks, including weekends.
I completed the work I needed to have done yesterday, and as my reward Colin and I went to (finally) go see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
I’ve really been looking forward to it, and I wasn’t disappointed.
I’m really looking forward to Saturday, with the release of the 7th and final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
I can remember when I was about 5 or 6 going to the movies for one of the very first times, and going to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
I remember the butterflies in my stomach, and the giddy skip in my step, and most fondly the large grin from ear to ear across my face.
How wonderful is a movie that can produce the same childhood memories.
Harry Potter (all of the Harry Potter) films have made me feel like that. I look very forward to them. . . .
Besides the obvious things missing (remember it is “only” a two hour film) I didn’t feel like this movie was lacking anywhere!
I had a different picture in my head for what both Dolores Umbridge and Luna Lovegood looked like though.
I had Dolores more like a short-haired butch lesbian than what she appeared to be in the film, and Luna was more of a goth or emo kid. . . . .
Colin and I joked that “Hyacinth Bucket” from Keeping up Appearances might have made a hilarious Dolores!
I really enjoyed Luna – As a voyeur I felt much more sympathetic towards her than I did in the book. She was very enjoyable and whimsical!
