The End Is Near
FYI: The new movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I is awesome. I know because our family went to see it today. We have all read all the books in the series, and now we have seen all the movies in the series . . . and certainly intend to watch Part II when it is released next summer. Despite knowing in advance what to expect from the plot, we were still surprised by moments of suspense that ended with elements meant to shock (and Hillary screamed quite loudly at one point when a snake made an attack that looked as though it were coming right off the screen and into our laps!). We gulped down our dinner in order to make it to the matinée showing on time, so we had no time or appetite for popcorn or pop during the movie. But other than the lack of snacks, it was a perfect movie-going experience.
