New Harry Potter – ACE!
Saw it yesterday, dragged a bit but my lad loved it. Where we watched it was like stepping back into the ’70s but we were already in Norfolk so it wasn’t very far to travel back. A bright auditorium, tiny seats all on a level – you can see everyone else in the room strangely makes you quite self conscious. It made me realise how good the multiplex experience is (never thoutht I’d say that) especially highlighted when there is bucket of popcorn only ten inches behind your head for most of the film. The wurlitzer and art deco detail were charming for about two minutes.
The film’s okay, we’ve read the books and there’s quite a lot of detail in the story that feels a bit squeezed in the film but it covers much more than half of the last book. Unless you’re familiar with the experience, I recommend that you don’t watch it in Cromer.Posted 7 years agomeehajaMember
as someone who hasn’t read the books and only seen a few of the movies, I found it really boring. ok, its supposed to be a series of films, i get that, but there was no stand alone story, lots of made up words without explanation, lots of characters who ween’t introduced. I didn’t have a clue what was going on! which was a shame as i went with a car load of potter geeks who dissected the whole movie for the drive home, trying ther best to work out which was my favourite character or my favourite bit.Posted 7 years agoepicsteveMember
I had to fight hard not to get dragged along to it by my wife. She went with my daughter in the end and both of them seemed to enjoy it – they’ve both read the books. My son has also read the books but wasn’t interested in going to see the latest film.
Years ago I started reading the first book but found it very dull so didn’t get far.Posted 7 years ago
