11:52 pm - A Book Report on "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets"
Well... the trailers sucked. Why did they ever add the ads before the previews? As if the previews we're annoying enough, and we needed more pain. The volume always seems way too loud on the ads as well, I guess they take that cue from TV.

Oh, the movie? Yeah, I guess it was good. It had some funny parts, it had some silly parts. It was nice just sitting there with lisana in the mostly-empty and completely childless theatre to enjoy the movie. Even if the total was $15.00 for admission and $4.00 for the drink we shared. So... cheap matinee being annoying with kids or expensive evening in an empty theater... hmmm... hard choice! :^)

Anyway I think it's bedtime for me now.

Movie Review, no spoilers (I hope)

I definitely liked the first one better. It seems that the film industry has taken the hint that moviegoers will sit through a more than 2 hour movie, and run with it, but this did feel a little long. I'm not sure where they could have tightened it up, but two and a half hours for a movie mainly aimed at kids was stretching it. And it was a little dark and scary for what I would percieve to be its intended audience. (I know, it's been 20 years since I was the in the intended audience's age group, and kids these days are much more worldly and grown up, and a lot harder to scare, I guess) Heck, I was edging closer to you in a couple of the scenes, even though my head was telling me this was a kids' movie, and the creature couldn't be that incredibly scary. It was mostly the anticipation thing.

As far as the story, I thought I had read at least part of the book of the second one when I borrowed them from your mom, but I don't the book matching up at all. Go figure. Maybe I read even less of it than I thought I did.

Anyway, with it being a show that didn't end till eleven, in the middle of the week, I really wasn't surprised that there weren't any kids there. It was kinda nice, even if we were both pretty sleepy by time the movie ended. ;) Okay, so we did come home, feed the cats, and hop on the computers for a bit before bed.
