Friday! Filler! Grab a cuppa tea.
Last night Mighty Reader and I went to a midnight showing of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1." It was amazingly made of awesome and I don't care if you've read the books or not* or seen the first six films or not: you have to go see this one. It's the absolute best one yet. The cinematography, costumes and direction are great. The special effects have leapt forward in realistic portrayals of whatever you can imagine. It's all I can do to stop myself from talking about it and giving things away. Just go. Do it.
Has anyone else seen it yet? Does everyone plan to go?
*I confess that I've read all seven books, and I can't for the life of me remember much of anything in them. So almost every scene in the film was like-new for me, and that added to the awesomeness. Mighty Reader has a much better memory, especially for details, and she's also just re-read The Deathly Hallows so there are changes and omissions, I tell you in the spirit of full disclosure, that might upset you if you're a true Potter fan. Me, I just thought it was ubercool.
