Thread Name: BS: Harry Potter
Subject: RE: BS: Harry Potter
I took my 10yr old daughter and 3 of her friends to see Harry Potter last night, amidst great excitement on their part (and mine!).

They thought it was all wonderful, screamed, jumped and laughed in all the right places (and there were lots of such places).

7.15 pm seemed a good time to go, as there were no crying babies, but lots of groups of Brownies and older families; everyone seemed engrossed.

I enjoyed it very much too, loved Hagrid and Ron, and John Cleese as Nearly Headless Nick (a nice surprise as I'd not heard that he was in it).

It was very much the film of the book, though, and I can understand those who've not read the book being a bit lost, as the plot development is pretty sketchy.

Great fun though.

Sins: yes, they show the stone- like a large piece of amber or glass- not quite as I'd imagined. And the inscription on the mirror of Erised was shown, but it wasn't mentioned that it was in reverse. The idea of it was done well though.

And Mrs Norris's name wasn't mentioned! :0)
