well - just got home from seeing the new Harry Potter movie. Fairly entertaining - the kid that plays Ron Weasley is great comic relief.

I've just got to get this out tho....ok....Potter is supposedly this famous up and coming wizard with great powers and so on and so forth. I've seen both movies now and it just seems to me that he is the shy kid that is perpetually caught by surprise everytime he even opens his eyes (read: deer in headlights) and basically saves the day more or less by accident. Did I get it right? :)

All in all - enjoyable movie - worth the matinee price.

Exactly, and much more believable as a character than the typical Hollywood hero that knows exactly what to do all the time. I loathe action adventure movies because in realistic situations they write tripe that cannot suspend disbelief. In the Harry Potter movies, in a fantastic world, the characters are believable. Not as believable as say, the characters in 12 Angry Men, but the scriptwriters, and the author of the books, manages to suspend disbelief long enough for the story to unfold without author intrusion.

Saw it opening night.

Gorgeous visuals, high production value, and imo, far less engaging than the first one.

We will see movie with the relatives over Thanksgiving. I went out today and got all the Harry Potter toys on my son's Christmas list. Last year I waited until after Thanksgiving to buy them and the ones he really wanted were all sold out. I drove all over town to every toy store I could think of and they were all gone. I couldn't even buy them online. So this year I decided to buy them early and save a lot of driving around.
