“Arrrrh…there be spoilers ahead….” Oops – wrong movie.
I managed to round up, feed and get three “tweens” in the car yesterday morning in time for us to catch the first showing of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” Try explaining to kids in “summer time brain mode” that the odds of seeing a premiere at the second showing on the day it opens is a rare thing indeed.
They were surprised to see a queue around the building.
Pardon my British “accent” but I’ve just finished a great book that I will post about soon. It’s all done in British dialogue and I’ve rather picked it up. That, and the kids thought that we should watch all 5 previous movies to prepare for the new one. I’ve sounded a bit like Molly Weasley all week. I was the only one who re-read the book; I told the kids the books would have Bonus Materials not found in the movie.
I’m glad our theatre was filled with mothers, kids and retired people. No one hushed me when I had to explain why Hermione was crying in the stairwell with Harry…why Harry was comforting her…and why Ron doesn’t seem to get it.
It was my niece who asked, “Why doesn’t Ron get IT?”
She’s years beyond her cousin in relational comprehension and she’s only 3 months older.
All in all we gave it a Four Thumbs up.
You’ve got to love “Ginny Weasley” in this clip.
In the theatre, all 3 kids lean into me and said, “Mom! Auntie E…she sounds like you!”
