Alana had an extra ticket to the Harry Potter premiere so by 9:30 last night I was standing in line surrounded by costumed fans. There were like maybe 5 kids and everyone else looked like college students and young adults (is that what I am?). We passed the time playing card games (well, I knitted). Would you believe me if I told you the crowd was dorkier than the Star Wars premiere? I don't know where I come off calling anyone dorky though, when I'm the one who was knitting a beanie in line.
I don't want to give away too much of the movie but if you are a fan of the series, I don't think you will be disappointed. For those who are not really fans, my friend Caroline who also went never read any of the books nor watched any of the other movies and I think she enjoyed it as well. I was a little apprehensive because I really liked the director for the third movie and they got someone new for the fourth, but good job Mike Newell! There were definate deviations from the book, but nothing that annoyed me and completely understandable considering they had to adapt 7hundredfreakin52 pages.
It was cute to see the characters grow up and start going through the awkward stages of dealing with the opposite sex and the humor and challenges they face have definately matured, which may explain why I am progressively liking the series more and more.
Oh and Cedric was more pretty than hot, but a pretty face on the screen is nothing to complain about. And the guy is 19, it's probably a little wrong to even be evaluating his looks, huh.
Hey at least I'm not counting down the days before Daniel Radcliffe is "legal". Gah! That's just wrong.
