Harry Potter, and Bitter Disappointment

My mom and I went with Drew to see Harry Potter today at the 11:50 AM showing.
I went in with low/medium expectations.
I try not to go in with high expectations. I always end up getting burned.
Haha, I made a pun. I'm super punny.

My brother, who's a potter head like my mom, had called my mom ahead of time and told her that they had changed certain things from the book in the movie.
I'm not going to spoil anything, so don't run off screaming LALALALA with your fingers in your... eyes.They did change a lot of things, and they left many key things out.
One key thing missing?
Voldemort. He wasn't in the movie at all. You never saw his face once. Nothing.
I don't think that counts as spoiling, right?
I'm just telling you someone was left out.
Which is really freaking ridiculous. Where's the danger if they most dangerous person in the story is missing?
Uh, helllo?

Another problem was how BORING it was. All of the other movies were exciting, thrilling, full of adventure.
This was just "Eh".

My mom came out of the movie and said "Ask me what I thought of the movie."
"What'd you think of the movie?"

It's a shame. My mom is such a potter head that she has her own wand and hat. Watching her come out of the movie with a look of disappointment was devastating in it's own Harry Potter way.
It was as if she had just watched Harry Potter die right in front of her, screaming out for her in pain and desperation.
"Save me Carol, save me!"
But she can't. She doesn't have her wand with her, so Harry is left to die an excruciating death.

Sadly, now she has very low hopes for the next movie. She wants to kidnap the director and force them to get someone that can actually direct.
I'd help her with that, but jail isn't good for me. I wouldn't be able to do my hair, and I'd end up looking like this:I mean sure, my mother's happiness is important to me, but so is hygiene.
And not being someone's "pet" in jail.

So Harry Potter was a disappointment, and I almost wish I hadn't seen it and ruined the rest of the series for myself.
What did I think of the movie?
"Pttttttttttth."Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway!

Ooh, I want that piece of licorice. Yum!

#6 was my favorite book. Too bad if the movie stinks. I'm sure I will see it one day. Eventually.

I can't decide. I am writing about it right now, but wanted to peek at your review, I seriously loved parts but can't tell if I LIKED it.

Well technically Voldemort WAS in it, but as his young Tom Riddle self.

Hey you! I love your new look! Very classy, you are just one talented chica!

Never been a fan of Harry Potter. Maybe I should start reading the books. Sorry it was disapointing.

I'm going to see it on Monday I think. I love the movies and the books, so I hope I like it...

Definitely agree. It was awful. Such a huge disappointment. I already didn't have high hopes for this one either so I wasn't as disappointed as I could have been which is the only good thing that came out of watching the darn thing.

Sorry it was such a disappointment to you. I am not a Harry Potter fan. I haven't seen any of the movies and doubt I ever will. I always hate it when a movie doesn't follow along with the book. That happens so frequently.

HI :) Am new to your blog...but wanted to let you know that I think that whole birthday thing was SO WRONG! I felt so bad for you! That Izzy is insane and RIDICULOUS!! And honestly, I am really glad she's out of your life. From what I can see you deserve WAY better than that for a friend! You're young, talented, extremely creative, and seem VERY nice. I hope she never comes back into your life, and that no one in your life stays friends with her!!

That stinks that it was a disappointment. I haven't read the books so I wonder if I won't be as disappointed?

Brandi said...

I've heard a lot of people say they were disappointed with the movie.
I'd be completely oblivious to whatever's going on, though!
I have yet to read the books, even though I got hubby all of them in hard cover. :)

I wish they had included more of the whole half-blood prince mystery. And I thought the movie was kind of general and went by too fast.

I saw it. I wasn't blown away ... sort of disappointed. I have not read the book so I can't compare.
