Friday was opening day of the newest Harry Potter movie: The Deathly Hallows, Part I.
I've been looking forward to this movie FOREVER (or so it seems) and it did not disappoint. Jay and I love these movies. He is the one that got me hooked first on the movies, and then on the books. I put off reading the books for too long, but once I read them, I was hooked. I now consider myself a HUGE Harry Potter nerd!!
We both loved this new movie, although it's bittersweet to see it all coming to an end. There is only one movie left (thank goodness they made the last book into two movies!) and it comes out in July. I know I will be so depressed when it's over! It was bad when the books are done, but at least then we could look forward to the rest of the movies coming out! But now the movies are going to be done too.
The movie was fantastic, and as soon as it was over I wanted to see it again. Hopefully we'll be able to see it one more time on the big screen (and then I'm sure I'll watch it countless times on DVD!).
And OF COURSE, it makes me want to re-read the whole series...again. I knew I didn't want to read Deathly Hallows right before seeing the movie, so now I'm trying to decide if I should hold off on re-reading until the final movie comes out, or just do it now... I re-read them last summer after Half Blood Prince came out, so I wonder if it's too soon.
As I'm typing this, our old, beat-up copy of The Philosopher's Stone is sitting next to me, calling my name....
