I can't resist--potter part 7

Unless you live under a rock, you're probably aware that Harry Potter opened at midnight last night. I've never been to a midnight showing of anything, so this being Harry Potter I had to go. It was such an amazing experience for so many reasons. 1. it was like 99% college kids who were really excited 2. i'm not a night person but was able to stay up till 4 for this movie 3. IT'S HARRY POTTER. Aside from the amazingness of the movie (which I will spare you from me going on and on about it) my favorite part was how interactive the crowd was. People cheered loud and laughed loud. It was so nice to be with a crowd like that, cause we've all been watching a movie and a funny part comes up and you can't laugh as much as you want cause the crowd sucks and doesn't wanna laugh. We cheered at Dobby the house elf being amazing and laughed at the Weasley twins being hilarious.

Alright I can't resist at least a little review. There were two main things that made it amazing. First off is that it actually followed the book really well. You already had these pictures of the scenes in your head and they played out exactly on screen. And second was the subtle humor added into everything. There's a lot of death (don't yell at me for "spoiling" it cause the book has been out forever and it's your fault for not reading it) and it was nice to have comic relief intermittently. But, like I said it was subtle: the awkward walk, facial expressions, and all those little things.

And yes this picture is of Hermione cause she's b.a.
