Reverend Jax Posted November 16, 2002 Share Posted November 16, 2002 I made a decision last week. I was going to go see Harry Potter 2 and I was going to enjoy it, and I wasn'ting going to let any snot nosed little brats stop me from that. I went to see Harry Potter early Friday, not to see it as soon as possible, but because if you go before school gets out, the theater ain't full of kids. Now, I like kids and I like alot of movies that are geared towards them, but I hate watching a movie in a theater full of them. The scream, they clap, and one of them will always cry (especially in this movie, damn some parts were scary). Plus, even if they are generally well behaved, lots of them go to movies alone and feel uninhibited in a dark room. Somebody told me that kids were out of school friday, but parents still can't drive there kids to the movie while they're at work. Anyway, it worked, I saw the 2:45 PM show, theater was almost empty, and the people that were there were adults, when I left at 5:30 PM, there was a long line for tickets full of kids. On to the review.... I have come to the conclusion that most all of the Harry Potter nay-sayers, are nay-sayers out of ignorance. They've written it off as lame because kids are so into it. But most everyone who gives it a fair chance seems to love it. I have yet to hear anyone say "I read the book and never got into it and I don't care to read the other books." I haven't read the books, but several friends and family members of mine have and they all give it their full endorement, so I'll get around to it soon enough. In the meantime the movie give me a good taste. If you liked the first one, you'll like the second one. Maybe more maybe less, but no more than 10% more or 10% less. If you didn't like the first one, the second one won't do anything for you. If you haven't seen the first one, don't see this one until you do. And give it a chance. My only major complaint was that there wasn't enough Hermione. Anyway, not havingf read the book, and hence not knowing the plot and hence not knowing the ending, I was again fooled by the surprise ending of the whodunit element of the movie, as I was witht he first movie, and this time I was actually looking for it.
