You sure (about being the biggest fan)? Do you have all the books in hardback, paperback, and audio? And the British version of each book in hardback? We do!

Aside from the Brit version... I do!!! and I read all the books 2x!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Harry Potter!!!!!

I am waiting until it comes up on Imax though - there is nothing like watching the movie for the 1st time in an IMAX... The second time on I can on a regular theater

I can't freakin wait to see it! Next week though, when the lines die down, I used to go to the premieres all dressed up! But I just don't have time these days!

I'll be seeing the movie this afternoon; have to wait for DH to get home from work. I can't wait!

As for taking young kids to see this----I just re-read the book, obviously haven't seen the movie yet, so don't know how this part is handled. When Harry and Dumbledore are trying to retrieve the Horcruix (I probably spelled that wrong) and are attacked by the Inferii (probably spelled that wrong, too), I thought to myself, "that could be awfully scary for a younger kid."

I don't see how anyone could have a problem with the "drug use" in this film. Haven't Harry and friends been making and using potions all along?

Anyway, can't wait to see it today!

the IMAX version will be 3D? hmm... may have to go there, then!

My kids were little (K and 3) when the books came out. I think my oldest was 2nd grade when the 1st movie came out. We all saw it, and it was fine. Mind you, this is the FIRST book.

Second was a little more scary- but nothing that a 10 year old couldn't handle.

Third wasn't bad either. Though the dementors could scare some little kids (under 5).

4th & 5th movie (both were PG-13 I think) I wouldn't take a kid under 10 (and that's pushing it). We let my youngest see it (I think she was 4th grade) and that last scene in the maze scared the heck out of her.

Their main dissapointment has been (and mine) the fact that they haven't been "true" to the books as they've gone on. The 4th movie only focused on the Triwizard Tournament, and there were other things that went on in that book.

Still good entertainment. We've got all the books (and the kids have read every single one) and all the movies so far.

Oh the books- well, we started reading them to dd when she was in K. She really didn't "get" it at that point, so Harry went away for a few years. Around 2nd grade we pulled the book out during the summer and she LOVED it. She was a really good reader, but there wasn't much that motivated her to read. Until Harry. After we read the first one, she did the 2nd, 3rd etc by herself.

I know of parents who won't let their kids read Harry b/c of the witchcraft stuff. BUT- then they turn around and let them read the Twilight series, and that just really confuses me

Yes! I saw it last night. Everybody at work made fun of me because I preordered tickets like a month ago, .

I absolutely loved it!! Definitely the best movie yet. They did a really good job in sticking close to the book. I was really worried about this movie but they kept all the necessary stuff and even had many things I wasn't expecting to make the movie cut! I was very very impressed.

So it's not like the 4th movie when my kids were VERY upset b/c they cut out Hermione's SPEW movement?

I was thinking the final duel would be scary for kids as well. Depending on the ages. My kids are well old enough, although I really doubt my 17 year old son would go see it...

I am scraping out the change jar. I finally found enough quarters, so I am going to see the matinee tomorrow! So excited! I love Harry Potter, and I was really sad because I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to afford to go. Huzzah, dollar in the bottom of my purse!

I think it will help cheer me up a lot.

I just saw the movie---literally, half an hour ago. I'd re-read the book, so everythng was still fresh in my mind. A LOT of the book was cut out, but nothing that was absolutely necessary to the plot.
I loved the movie, btw, and plan to see it again.

My husabnd is taking me to a matinee showing tomorrow!

We're also taking our 2 year old son with us. He loves The Incredibles, so we figured, why not? (=

Lol I see the point now- it's too scary.. I used to have nightmares from movies as a child so I should know what that's like! I thought it might be because of witchcraft, I find that ridiculous, fairy tales have more references to witchcraft than HP.

I was really really dissapointed with the movie.

I gotta say I was too. I was expecting more action and the ending was kinda dull. I get that they are trying to set it up for the next movie but all in all I thought it was just meh.

\t \t\t \t \tConservative Christian reviews of the new Harry Potter movie are surprisingly positive.
"As 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' opens, we are once again reminded of the characteristics that make him something of a Christ figure," Connie Neal writes for the evangelical Christianity Today.
"It is more likely that at the end of the viewing or reading, rather than the allure of magic ... what remains are the scenes that evoke values such as friendship, altruism, loyalty, and the gift of self," wrote L'Osservatore, the Vatican's semi-official newspaper.
