I’m done. I finished the books a week and a half ago and I’ve discussed my thoughts and feelings at length. At the moment I’m typing this, I am about 30 minutes away from being done with the movies. We watched the first Deathly Hallows on Sunday nigh
We are currently watching the second Deathly Hallows but taking a pause break so Stephen can do night-night time with Jansen. (I’m listening to him read a Thomas book in a Greek accent. He chooses a new accent every night. It’s sort of awesome and proof that my husband is amazing.)
Can we please discuss our overall opinions of the movies?
In general, I am a fan. I think I would LOVE them if I had waited a while to watch them. I should have read all the books, waiting a few months, and then watched all the movies. When you watch the movies right after reading the books, all you can do is think, “But wait! That’s not what happened! Didn’t they read the book??”
If you’re a Harry lover, I’d like to know how you feel about that. How does your love for them compare to your love of the books? Equal-but-different? Do you love them only because you loved the books? What was your favorite movie? Least favorite?
I think I need to watch them all again. I’ll reread the books in a few years and experience it again. It’ll never be the same, this I know. You can only be a first timer ONCE. That makes me sad. All of you who have told me how jealous you are of me experiencing it for the first time… I get it.
