The other night, I went to see the new Harry Potter movie. Opening night.
As you may recall from THIS POST, I am fairly new to the Potterverse, and this is the first of the movies I saw. My review: WOW, if I hadn't read* the book, there are a whole lot of things that would not have made sense to me at all.
I don't want to get all SPOILERY, but seriously, I think the really removed the sense of danger and peril that permeated the book. The school didn't seem well guarded. The kids strolled into town like it was nothing. The movie was 99.9% Tonks free, etc.
Oh, I liked it well enough, but it just didn't seem to stand up on it's own as an independent movie as much as I'd hoped.
Feel free to start ripping me.
* OK, listened to the audio-book.
