    NO issue here! Have not seen the first zillion Harry Potter movies nor do I have any desire to see the final 2. Kids are at just the right age where they could care less as well..

    Have you read the books?
    And there have only been 6, not a zillion.

    We will be going opening weekend, if we can get tickets reasonable...
    If not we will wait till the following weekend.

    We already know what is going to happen, so it's not like it can get "spoiled"

    My wife was finally able to get me interested in these movies, and I just bought the first six on Blu-ray.

    Bring it on!

    Let me start off by saying that I have never been into wizards and dungeons and things like that so No, I have not read any of the books nor do I have an interest in them. My daughter did try and read the first Harry Potter book recently and found it to be "Boring" (her words) but then again she is only 8.

    I realize there has only been 6 movies. Just feels like a zillion ;)

    I don't know...

    I look at it an totally different way.

    Looking at the Movies only (the books are much more in-depth)...

    The movies are no different then most drama/action movies.
    Magic = Weapons
    Brooms = Cars

    Change those two around: You have the key good guy, the key bad guy... and then everyone that helps those two people in the story.

    Love, Suspense, Loss, Victory... it's all there.

    Now the books... Book #1 is probably one of the more boring ones, compared to the rest. But given that it was the first one, the one that had to be sold to a publisher... it is short, not as indepth... and if JK could rewrite it, I bet there is a TON of stuff she could add to it.

    The later books in the series, I would disagree that they are "boring"

    I'm not going tonight but we do have tickets already purchased for an 8:00 show tomorrow night. We're sitting in the adults-only section so we don't have to worry about any kids being around to bother us, hopefully no adult(s) decide to take their place. I'm really curious how they will end this first part of the final episode, it's been a while since the last time I read that book but I don't remember there being any real dividing points when the story ****s drastically - or at least not near the middle of the story anyway. I hope it lives up to my expectations regardless of the story break. I was so disappointed in the way they cut out most of the fights for Hogwarts in both "Order of the Phoenix" (when Umbridge essentially takes over towards the end) and "Half Blood Prince".

    If kids (who are in school) are in line with their parents for a midnight showing on a Thursday night, then I highly question their parenting.

    Wife and I are hitting the 10am show tomorrow. And there is no way my daughter would even make it to midnight, much less through a 2.5 hour movie.

    I'm lucky if I can make it through a 1 hour TV show most nights!

    I thought the movie was excellent and I left being very happy that they split the last book into two movies to be able to cover more of the story. I was also very pleased with where they decided to end the first movie, I think it would have been impossible to do it in a way that made it feel like the story actually ended - so they didn't even really try and I think that was a good move.

    Looking forward to seeing it again (when it hits BD) and for part 2, they should be able to do the end of the book justice within a full 2 hours plus.
