I feel like I've been waiting for this movie to come out forever. It was a sad, sad day when the release got bumped from last November to this July. I didn't think I would survive the wait. Somehow I managed to make it through until last night's showing. And let me tell you- it was worth the wait!!! I LOVED this movie!!!!
I learned a long time ago to not to expect a movie version of my beloved book but to expect a movie loosely based on the book. I'm a lot less disappointed when I go into movies with that attitude. Yes, there were things that I would change but overall I was very, very impressed. I loved the acting, the cinematography, the writing and the score. Heck, I even liked Michael Gambon as Dumbledore, which is saying a lot.
I could go on and on about my favorite parts and how impressed I was with the casting and the acting (Those kids get better and better with each movie!) but that would be boring for everyone except me so I'll stop now.
I'll just sum it up with this-
I laughed, I cheered, I gasped, I sat on the edge of my seat, and I cried (ok, maybe bawled is a better word) ... it was wonderful!!! I can't wait to go again!
