I took the family to see the new Harry Potter flick yesterday with about 20 friends.  What a blast.  I had no idea you could get into a theater an hour before the show these days :-).

I was pretty impressed.  It's amazing what a real director can do with a story, instead of just parroting the book for two hours.  The new one is much more like a real movie, and focuses much more on story than on special effects (although there are some cool ones, they are subtle) and cutesy elves.  It's a much darker film, and really showcases some great British actors.  I'd have to say that the kid who plays Harry has pretty much reached the limits of his acting ability, but Hermione rocks!

Well worth seeing, and much less of a kiddy film than the first two.
