I certainly am!! I thought it was great - I think they did a ok job of converting the book for the movie -- I mean the book was so long, but the movie still had most the best parts of the book ... and no SPEW YEA!!
OMG...I had to really think to figure out what ths movie was...then I figured out harry potter....so, no...I ahve not read any of those books or seen any of the movies....not for any reason really...well, I tried reading the first book and it was kind of boring....so I stopped....
I am SO looking forward to owning this, but....not sure about letting my little ones see it. They could handle Prisoner of Azkaban, but this one was creepy, creepy, creepy. Between the death eaters at the beginning and Voldemort at the end, I'm thinkin nightmares for a month. My daughter and I saw it in the theater, looked at each other, and said it was a good thing our youngest wasn't there.
I'll be at Costco next Tuesday, picking up other things, too, of course.
Anyone know of any place cheaper? $20.99 (Actually, that seems pretty expensive.)
Is that for the super special edition? Lately there seem to be 3 different versions of each disc available on day one. The one disc version in either full or widescreen. This generally is on sale for around $14.99 the first few days. Then there is the 2 disc special edition that is over $20. Not sure if this is the case for GOF, but that's the way Batman Begins, Chocolate factory & Walk the Line have been (just naming three that I've picked up in the last few months).
Even though I seem to be in the majority here. I did not like the movie very much. I feel they crucified the book, I am sure my husaband and I will add it to the collection we have of the others.
Yes, yes, every book has been decimated. That's why we still have and reread the books in our house.
Now, remember how long it took to read the book? That's about how long the movie might have to be in order to get every single nuance of the book, especially nuances that are important for subsequent books. Some sacrifices have to be made.
It's possible that the book (each of them, actually) could have been turned into an HBO series instead.
(I'd like to see the Stephanie Plum books do that, instead of turning them into a series of movies. But that's just me (and my wife).)
