    The One-Stop Harry Potter Thread

    Who braved the crowds of pre-pubescent teens with crushes on Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson?

    My girlfriend went with her teen nephews....last I heard she said it was "ok". I didn't have that much bravery...I'll hold off a bit myself.

    Did anybody see it already?

    Hermione did, but they had to delete the scene to keep the rating.

    I'm not one of the cool kids. I don't stay up past midnight just be the first to blab about a movie or book. But we have promised our 6 y.o. that we'd take him to see it since he's already read the book.

    Why should I wait in line, when next week the theatre will be practically empty? Then I'll go - maybe - if my 12 year old daughter wants to.

    I'd be hard pressed to care less about the Harry Potter franchise. That aside, I've been to exactly one such midnight showing, and I'll never do it again. By about 1:30am, sitting in a dark room, in a comfortable chair, it was tough to stay awake. I'll just stick with being patient and waiting for the DVD.

    My mom probably did. She likes Harry Potter, don't know why. I've never read any of the books, never seen any of the movies, and I hope I never have to.

    I did, yes. They pulled it off beautifully. It was such a dark book, with the bad guys winning in the end and Harry being a jerk through most of it, that it was a tougher movie than the others. Twas cool.

    I went with 7 girls, snacks and drinks. Good times

    These things are like parties if you do it right - and some of costumes people were walking around in were awesome. The fireball wallet got my vote for best prop and these two college girls were walking around in hawt Hermione costumes (low neck, high skirts). And everywhere in between.

    I had originally planned to, with my daughter, but this week has been too crazy to be able to stay home from work so she could sleep in the next day.

    The books are fun, the last two movies were good, and to me it's just a fun pop-culture thang. We will definitely be at a the release party for the final book in the series, a week or so from now. She's read each of the books many times (ten or more) and it's a pretty healthy obsession, as far as I'm concerned, so I don't mind indulging her interests.

    That's my vote too.

    I read the books so far....very good stories, but I don't have to see the movie with screaming kids on opening night and so late I can't hardly get up for work next morning.

    In the theater I went to there weren't any kids under 18 with about a 5-2 ratio of girls to guys. Apparently you'll don't go to the right theaters

    Taking my kids this weekend. They're both big fans and so far the reviews sound pretty good.

    To quote the man show, I'd rather take a bus load of hair dressers to see snoopy on ice than see this flaming turd of a movie.

    meh.

    I can wait for the movie. I'll snap up the book though ASAP.

    Taerom and Michigander - I spent several years holding an attitude like you two guys did. Someone gave one of the books to one of the kids as a birthday present, and I figured, "why not?" It isn't going to compete with Tolstoy or Shakespeare, for being high literature (whatever that is) but the stories are far more interesting than Barbara Cartland, or Steven King books.

    I realize some people don't feel at ease with the genre, but that's no excuse to put down the writing or the people who do enjoy the stories.

    I must disagree, at least as far as the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. (Most of his other stuff is indeed crap.) You see, I read the second book, and saw one of the movies. Childish garbage in my mind. To each is own, but it's not my thing. With a lot of things that happened in those books/movies, people would have killed each other over realistic equivilant situations. I can't stand it when something is that Disney'd up. Fantasy is fine with me, like I said I like the Dark Tower series, but that level of childishness is something I can't stand.

    I'm with you zorro. I definitely think that the entire premise is kind of random and fairytale like, and for the most part meant for children. Therefore, I'll give props to JK rowling for her accomplishments as a writer, and for creating such a sucessful story, but I'll never read any of the books. I will probably see the new movie though, It's interesting enough for me to waste my time for a few hours to see it.
