Overall, it was good entertainment and it dragged less than the book and while lots of chaff was cut, there were also some bits missing. Just like the book, it was more a vehicle to bring in some more background information (the prophecy
I really wanted to see more Tonks (yep, definitely my type) but Luna Lovegood was very cool. Helena Bonham Carter als Bellatrix Lestrange, yum yum.
It's not brilliant but better than the book, even if a few vital bits were missing.
Oh, and I think that Dan Radcliffe is actually getting a lot better as an actor, he's a lot less wooden than he used to be.
Spoilers, just in case you haven't seen it or read the book )

Trailers: Stardust looks good. I still haven't read the book, must do that before. Hopefully I'll find it when I junk out my room over the weekend because I lost it. I Am Legend WTF? No idea what that is supposed to be and what I've read on imdb isn't encouraging although it looked interesting. Evan Almighty not my thing at all.

I finished it just before 5 this morning because I couldn't stop. I thought about stopping because I have really important Stuff™ to do today but I knew that first thing would be to pick up the book again so it didn't really matter. It's good, it's long but it doesn't drag and most of it made sense.

just a few comments and questions )

I think spring is finally here, the sun is shining, a fresh breeze is wafting through my place and the birds are singing. Lovely.

ION, there's a disturbing photo of Harry, Hermione and Ron as spooky kids [livejournal.com profile] wyrdness found...

Now to housework!

If Prisoner of Azkaban is the best book, this was the best film. Obviously, loads of things missing from the massive book and some characters get a bit short changed.
Great acting throughout and if Tennant is as good as the Doctor as he was in GoF, he'll be fantastic. OK, completely different characters but if he can pull off a small role like that, he should be able to do the same for a lead.
It was long but it didn't feel long.

Thank you, Ms Rowling, for restoring my respect for you, thank you for a wonderful book I had to force myself to put down so I could get a few hours of sleep.
No thanks for keeping me from all those things I should have done over the weekend. :oP

Now please make sure that the seventh one will at least be just as good and you don't do another OotP.
