So I got to see Harry Potter yesterday. It was the first of the HP films that I have seen after I read the books. It was also the first I saw in the theater. Both of these things helped me like the film the most of any HP films.
Previously, I have had a little trouble following the story line. (Especially in Prisoner of Azkaban)
Several of the scenes were incredible due to the big screen & surround sound (i.e. the dragons).
Now I have decided I must re-read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
The one disappointment with the film was that there was very little of my favorite character, Snape. Why is such a dark character my favorite? I really don’t think he is all that dark, just very real. I think (especially upon reading all 6 books) that he is the character with the most depth & emotion.
Well at least we will see more of him in the next film.
