Harry Potter 7 Is My World, or, Sorry Rachel

Best Movie Ever.

With one weirdo exception (you'll know what I'm talking about once you see it), I loved everything, everything, everything about it.

We got home at 3:00 am, and I had complicated Harry Potter story dreams all night. It was great.

My Harry Potter t-shirt did not arrive in time for the midnight movie, which is a regular drag. But, I figure with the amount of times I'm planning on seeing this movie, I'll get plenty of use out of it.

I can't wait until July 2011. But, at the same time, that will be it. Done. An idea I find excruciating. Like the cruciatus curse in thought form.

Visit The T-Shirt Project for someone who did get their t-shirt in time.


This is a shot of us in our matching New York jackets. If we had asked everyone in line, this would look like a freshman class picture from the University of Black Winter Coats.


  1. You heard it, right? That cry that sounded something like a thousand unicorns dying? That was me sobbing in Tunisia.

    My Thanksgiving plans will be in this order: sleep the sleep of the jet-lagged dead, pie, Harry Potter 7, more pie.

  2. Dave and I just saw it tonight. Man, I just LOVE Harry Potter! Seriously, is there anything better?? No.

  3. Tell me your "weirdo exception." I thought about that the whole time I watched the movie. I came up with one GLARING one, but there are a few runners up.

  4. Brooke:

    Oh, it was the CGI naked Harry and Hermione. I was all, WHAT? It was both totally creepy and unnecessary.

    What was yours?

  5. Rachel, yeah, it's weird, I think I did hear that. I thought it was a bum or something.

    Crystal, no. There is NOTHING better than this movie. NOTHING.

  6. That's what I'd put my money on. Somehow, they turned my beloved Harry Potter into a Twilight-esque scandal! Whoops. I'm talking to the wrong person, if I'm going to use that comparison. I was revolted. I was positive that was your weirdo moment as well until, on the way home, my roommates were laughing at the Harry/Hermione dance-in-the-tent scene. They thought that was weird and out of place. Sure, it's not in the book, but I rather enjoyed that snippet of tenderness.

  7. You need to find new roommates. Stat. That dance scene in the tent was such a wonderful moment. I want to kiss David Yates for giving me such a gem of a moment.

    Yeah, that CGI stuff was...the thing is, it's not even that they were naked, I just don't like the feeling that I'm being baited. Like they're trying to shock me, or being provocative just for the sake of being provocative.
