So.... is it worth it to go see Harry Potter now, or is it as sucky as my coworkers say it is? Granted, the people who said that it was awful never read the books...

I was going to insert the phrase "without giving any spoilers..." into the first statement, but sheesh. I've already read the books, I know who dies, for Voldemort's sake.

Inquiring minds want to know. If it's as dull as the multiple unread coworkers say, then I spose I can wait for it to hit the $3 theater.

I actually kind of enjoyed it. *shrug* I didn't really like the one with the Triwizard Tournament much though.

I haven't seen it, but I'm hearing mixed reviews too.

I just came back from it. I think its the best of the series so far.

Mom and I saw it today, and it was definitely worth the $7.75 we paid for a matinee show. If you like the awkwardness of the office but translated into weird teenage love stuff, then you will like this. I giggled so much.. it felt awkward to be watching it with my mom. HAH!
It didnt feel.. epic. It felt like.. well, like .. an episode.. a GOOD episode, but.. it certainly isnt a stand alone movie, of course. I dont know what I'm getting at.. see it. I'd advise sooner than later, but if you really feel like you might be disappointed wait till its on dvd and netflix it or something.

I will tell you what I have been telling everyone, "The movie was relatively faithful to the book, as in not much happened." though I still enjoyed it.

I don't think it's anything that you need to see immediately. HBP is actually one of my favourite books because it is so character driven and backstory oriented.

Actually, I was very impressed. It was one of the better done movies.

It stayed true to the book in that there was not much that really went on, and it developed the characters more, as well as playing up the relationship angle among them. I feel it did a good job as a build up to the next book/film(s)/finale, in that the view is left with the feeling of all is lost at the end, though there is still hope. I agree that the teenage love/angsty bits are VERY giggle inducing.

There was a scene dealing with Harry's visit to the Weasley's at Christmas had a fight scene added in that seemed to be just for action's sake, but for the most part, it was a solid film.

it's wonderful. a little bit too much on a giggly side, perhaps, but anyway..it's a pity that the movie lasts for only two and a half princes hours, i'd like to see a five hour long version.. with every little detail from the book ;-J

Yes. After watching it last night I'd say...yeah it's probably worth the money for a matinee at least. True it did feel...transitional almost to a fault but then that's just how it goes.

Looking at the previews of upcoming attractions though, ecccch. I may not go back to the movies until the next HP film comes out at this rate. Everything either looked just stupid or delivered with the maximum possible body count.

I saw it this weekend, and I wasn't sorry. I liked it better than the book. Harry didn't come across as much of a whiney teen as he did in the book.

I liked it.

But that really has no bearing because I love the Potter. I cried. But I expected that.
