I'm hoping to fit a trip to the HP part in as part of the CV trip this year.  I still need to work out some final details on travel but if everything lines up I'll either have a day before or the Monday after the con to try to get over there for it.

The trailer is up at Mugglenet, can't wait.  Sort of sad that the series will be wrapping up though...kind of bitterwsweet like it was with the ROTS release.  Excited to see it, but disappointed that it will be "over" (at least we get a two part finale though).

Edit: Also up at Apple

Of course. But for us lame old-timers, there's still 2-D.

That trailer is kick-ass!  I'm really looking forward to this movie.

I don't think I'll see it in 3D but I think we can pretty much expect many, if not all, big even films like this will get the 3D treatment in order to pull some extra box office bank. 

Plus, it's the new toy to play with.  It's like everyone that ran out to put bullet time shots into their films, television shows and commercials after The Matrix came out.  They even put it to work in a couple NFL stadiums.  Now you don't see it that often unless it's done as a joke.  I don't think 3D will be the same way, but I think at some point the newness will wear off and you'll see it reserved more for movies filmed in 3D like Avatar than just converted to it because the producers could afford it.

I'll stick with 2D as well me thinks.

I liked the trailer and it looks as gritty as I was expecting/hoping.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised but most of the clips look to come from Part 2 of the movie.  

Was that the same Olivander in the trailer as from the Sorcerer's Stone?  Its been a long time since I watched that one and for some reason he didn't look like I remembered.

Cool.  Same guy, no photo though :)  

Still very excited to see some more Harry Potter!!


I've been working my way through the Audio books (again).  I'm in the beginning of the Goblet of Fire right now.  For those of you who have not ever listened to them, I highly recommend doing this.  Jim Dale does the reading and he does and absolutely fabulous job with them.  He changes his voice for all the characters and you really get sucked in.  In many ways, its my favorite way to enjoy the Harry Potter experience.

I saw movie #5 in both 2D and 3D - 3D worked very well for the final battles, especially the duel between Dumbledore and Voldemort. I was disappointed that movie #6 lacked so much action (although I did love the few "sort of" moments of "action" that Bellatrix had towards the end), and I'm definitely looking forward to the battle of Hogwarts.

Bellatrix is so awesome!

SPOILERS for those who don't want to know, but apparently the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly reveals the "split point" for the Deathly Hallows movies.  You can read the excerpt HERE, if you'd like to know.

Without giving away what the article says - I have to agree that it is a lot later into the book than I expected too.

I have been rereading the books in a run up to the movie.  I honestly don't remember how far along in the book this point was.  Interesting place though with how far along the article says it is.  Once I get to the book, I guess I can get a better idea of the content of movie 2.

Sounds like there was a test screening for Death Hallows - Part 1 in Chicago this past weekend.  A number of reviews at the link above, although this one seems the most detailed and pretty much takes you through the entire movie in summary form.  SPOILERS ahoy, if you're worried about that.  A few changes from the book, but overall, it seems pretty faithful and looks like it will be pretty great - really looking forward to it.

Fifteen new pics from Deathly Hallows - Part 1

I have to admit, the scene with the various "Harrys" looks like it could be funny.  Really looking forward to the movie.
