    I just saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. WOW it was great. DS and I watched the first Harry Potter movie a short while ago (for the millionth time) and it's so great to see that after 6 movies, the characters are still well-cast and well-played, the special effects are spectacular without being overly so, and that the story is still compelling.

    Great great addition to the series - enjoy!

    Definitely!! I usually take my cousin on a "date" whenever the next movie comes out. (He's 20 now). But haven't had time this week and we are going on vacation next week. So hopefully when I get back. He may have already gone by then but I am sure he will go again. When we went and saw Harry Potter in '04 i was 7 months pregnant and he was 15 and was so nervous that I was going to go into labor during the movie!! Memories.

    Lisa, there's some kissing in it but that's about it. I think it's ok for a 10-year old who has seen other HP movies.

    I have yet to see it but my friends son who is 10 went and saw it and he said there was only 1 part in there that kind of scared him. It was when they were in the lake.

    Yeah, I'm 29 and that part kind of scared me a little. Super good movie! I felt like it strayed from the book more than the others had, but was still awesome. I can't wait for November 2010 when the first part of the 7th movie comes out. I'm really hoping that before the second part comes out that some movie theater will do an all day showing of all the movies (and part 2 playing at midnight)...I think it would be lots of fun (yet very long :))

    Erica great minds think alike - DS and I are going to have a Potter-thon on New Year's Eve. He is in charge of calculating how early we have to start watching to accomodate bathroom and dog walking breaks.

    We had a Lord of the Rings marathon 2 years ago and it was so much fun!

    I don't know why this thread is here ... but I loved the books and am liking the movies too!

    I haven't seen the latest movie just yet. I don't like to watch movies alone. I'll either see it with my roomate who is out of town or my friend whose husband is a Harry hater.
