what's next?

I went to see the Harry Potter pre-showing on Tuesday evening. As someone who's not a huge Harry Potter fan, I'm a bit baffled about all the hype. After seeing the movie and having to step over crowds of kids/teens/fanatics lined up around the theater to get back to the car, I was even more confused. I've only ever seen the first movie and vowed to stop because the books were so much better-- I don't think lining up 7 hours before a movie opens is very worth it, especially when you already know what's going to happen. Luckily, my connections allowed me to save the $10 you have to pay nowadays to get into a theater, but I honestly have much better things to do with my time than dress up, camp out, and associate myself with the crazies that are outside the movie theater. It's cute when you see the little elementary schoolers running around with their wands and capes, but when you see high schoolers and adults, it gets a little creepy. It's not cute anymore, guys. It's just weird.

The movie itself wasn't too memorable. Especially if you've already read the book. In a nutshell, the Harry Potter kids hit puberty, and Harry Potter is the Chosen One. Interesting. I can't wait to see what the next movie brings!
