My twin & I went to a midnight show Tuesday night/Wed morning. We got there at 9:15pm, they were already seating but we were the 2nd & 3rd people there. We answered trivia questions from a Harry Potter trivia book and had more fun doing that than watching the movie.
I'm not quiet about how I feel the movies cut too much stuff out to the point where I can hardly enjoy them anymore. Movie 1 (HP & SS/PS) was the truest to the book in my opinion. Movies 2 (HP & COS)& 3 (HP & POA)were decent. Movie 4 (HP & GOF) was just annoying in the changes they made and not one of my favorite books to begin with. Book 5 was practically unforgivable, then this movie.
I know they're going to make book 7 into 2 movies, but I don't see how. Too much was left out.Click to see Spoiler:they could have completely cut Kreature out of this movie. He, Dobby & the Hogwart's house elves have meainingfuly roles in the last book, though that might begin movie 7. Some stuff was just details that might have made it easier for non-bookreaders to comprehend, but others I feel were crititcal errors of omission and they're either going to spend a lot of time covering ground that should have been covered in movie 6 just to make final movies make sense or even more stuff will be left out completely.Click to see Spoiler:I feel robbed that I didn't get to bawl uncontrollably at Dumbledore's funueral
Just to add a positive, I thought they handledClick to see Spoiler:Katie's curse scene was done well and was appropriately scary. The fire in the cave and the inferi scenes were good but I wish they would have shown more about how Dumbledore tried to get the locket out and how certain spells didn't work.
