Gaaah I loved it.
I have to work early tomorrow and I SHOULD be sleeping, but I figured it better I try and capture this moment or something.
I loved Draco.
God I love Draco.
I loved Slughorn and Mclaggen and Lavender and all the new characters. I loved Luna. I loved the cave scene. I loved the Narcissa/Bellatrix/Snape scene.
I even loved the lack of plot until the very end, but that wasn't the movie's fault. The book is exactly the same.
I even liked the Ron and Hermione stuff. It was cute.
I will never be a fan of Harry and Ginny though. Especially weird Room of Requirement seductive Ginny. What.
I've never been a particularly hard fan to please, and I am way less critical than most people.
I had this moment when I got a chill in the cave scene - I had a very vivid flashback to me in high school, sitting in my room reading the 6th book the day it came out and thinking "I can't WAIT to see this cave scene in a film. It's going to be awesome."
I don't have much else to say about the movie, because it's late and I haven't had had enough time to process everything and I need to see it about two more times, but I am incredibly happy with it. I dressed up. XD
I think one of my favorite parts was when young Tom looks up at Dumbledore and asks, "You're the Doctor, aren't you?" Hahha.
One anecdote from the evening -- Liz and I went to Starbucks with Kayley, and we each got a drink AND a cup of ice water. We went outside with our plethora of drinks and found a nice table to sit at, right in the glow of a Jamba Juice. Liz and I, at nearly the same time, looked at our drinks in dismay and said, "I want Jamba Juice!"
After a few minutes Liz said, "I don't even know why I got iced chai. I want passion iced tea."
I nodded in agreement. "I know what you mean. I got stupid passion iced tea and what I really wanted was chai."
A second later we realized what opportunity the universe had presented us and we switched and everyone happy.
PS. Thank you to everyone who left incredibly nice comments on my last post.
You have no idea how much your words really help. I like youtube comments and deviantart comments and twitter @replies, but nothing is better and honestly more touching than some of your blog comments. I really like you guys. :)
