Because I'm stupid I went to see this movie on my one day off this week.  It was a daft choice.  I was over wrought, over tired and over emotional and found it extremely difficult to watch.  I'll try to be coherent, but I'm not sure if I'm remembering correctly.  Please just bear with any weird jumps in thought :D Also, anyone likely to see it and not want to be spoiled (which ... uh, yeah the storyline is kind of obvious hehe) please to avert your eyes now.

Long ramblings about the movie under here. Enter at own risk )

OK, having now seen the new movie 3 times I have finally got past the incoherent 'omg that was the best ever' side and can actually formulate why I like it so much.
My thoughts on the movie )

I have become even more of a laughing stock to my friends and family as the date approaches.  Do I care?  Nope.  I can't wait for this new movie.  All the new promotion just looks fabulous, and it's getting awfully hard to wait, lol. 

To pass the time, one of our local cinemas is showing all 5 previous HP movies, one showing each, over 5 days.  I missed the first 2 because I didn't know about it, and if I didn't know about it I think I can safely say that their advertising on it was really bad.  Still, I managed to get to PoA today and will try to see OotP in 2 days time.  PoA on the big screen again was amazing.  For starters, it still came attached to the original 2004 trailers, so I saw a trailer for Spiderman 2 and one for the Polar Express.  It was quite adorable.  Then, the sound quality was fantastic.  I heard things I know I've never heard before which makes me think I should hint at the husband for a decent speaker system for our living room. 

The other great thing was that it was so big.  I know that's a pretty obvious observation, but even though we have a pretty big TV it just doesn't compare.  I know these movies inside and out, having seen them all many many times.  But it was a new experience to see it so huge.  It struck me again that movies really are meant to be seen on the big screen.  It's such a shame that more movies aren't re-screened because that really is the best way to appreicate them.

Now I really can't wait for OotP (my favourite of them so far) and of course HBP next week.  Next freaking week!

Yes, there are only 50 days til HBP hits our movie screens.  I'm so excited for it, it's unbelievable.  I thought my excitement might die off with the  delay, but apparently not -- it just went stratospheric instead.  I'm really hoping that one of my local theatres will have a midnight screening, since my country is first past the date line so to speak, and it would be totally cool to go to the very first screening of the movie.  I doubt it will happen though.  Midnight openings are so very rare here *sigh*

On a positive note, one of my good friends is coming over from Australia so we can go together.  For the first time in my life I will be able to go to an HP movie with someone who 'gets it' and I just can't wait.

50 days to go!
