It would seem that I am in the minority on this one, but I did not enjoy the latest Harry Potter movie. Maybe it was just the aggregate rottenness of the day, but it just didn’t work for me. I figured catching a 12:30 show on a Thursday would net me a less-than-full theatre, but alas I am a complete idiot. At least one bus full of little brats was in the parking lot already and apparently they had been there for some time as I was 20 minutes early.
Needless to say the place was packed full of obnoxiousness and my seat was less than desirable. I love Star Cinema, but man-o-man do not sit along the fringes. The speaker directly above/behind me was an order of magnitude louder than the others and slightly out of phase. So every piece of dialog was delivered with a really loud echo.
Then there’s the 3D. The best scene in the movie was completely ruined by the stupid 3D. If I thought the overall movie was as good as the last four had been I’d bother seeing it in a non-iMax.
Oh well, Half-Blood Prince & Deathly Hollows are what? 2 years away? At least someone slapped some sense into Emma finally.
