Kitty and I finally got around to seeing the latest Harry Potter installment last night. I have to agree with most of the reviews that I had read so far. It was very good overall, but there were moments that seemed to drag the movie down. While I like the fact that they are doing character development over special effects, Hogwarts seems to have lost a lot of its magical quality. It's turning into just another high school. Waaaaay too much time was spent on the whole dance scene. It was right out of any teenage angst high school movie. I did like the fact that the whole feel of the movie was more mature. So yes, I would give it 3 stars.
There was a nice trailer for a movie I had never heard about until then. It was "Happy Feet" which will be coming out next year. The trailer looked extremely cute. I guess "March of the Penguins" has started a penguin craze.
I had not seen this on anyone's LJ yet, but there is another anthropomorphic animated film coming out in 2008. Keep an eye out for "Kung Fu Panda" with Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, and Jackie Chan.
