Harry Potter

I was sitting in the theater the other day, watching previews, and that tinkling HP theme music started. Now, by this point I had seen the short teaser previews already. You know, the ones that just have faces appearing out of mist with ominous music. So I thought I would just be seeing that crap again.

Oh boy, was I wrong.

This was a long, dark, ominus teaser. Scary music, plot hints, awesome visuals. I was pretty much drooling by the end of the 2 minute spot. Now, I didn't much like Goblet of Fire when I first read it. I had gotten used to the short books - I liked the punchy, fast style. Then J.K. produces this book with digressions, side plots and (what I thought was) way too much angst.

Since then, I guess I've gotten used to the 'big' books. But I gotta say, I look forward to the edited version of the book. Expansion of character development is good... only to a point.

So I have tickets to the Saturday 8pm showing. Before the show, I'm gonna drink beer and play pool. I just can't freaking wait. Aww, yeah!
