I went to the premiere of the new Harry Potter movie tonight. A co-worker telephoned last minute with an extra ticket so I said I’d go along. A few years ago I went to the movies and saw one of the Potter movies, I don’t remember which one. I do remember I didn’t like it all that much. Whether they have improved with time I don’t know but this one was much better. I could still follow the story without knowing the previous movies. Basic plot is Harry is entered into a very dangerous Wizardary competition. At the same time evil doers are running around doing bad things. I did enjoy the movie but it wouldn’t be one I rush out to see at the cinemas. Maybe wait for DVD. Oh and be warned… there is no closure.
After the movie I caught up with Kate and we went to the strand for a celebratory ice-cream since she just had her final exam for the university year. It was pretty windy but the desserts were enjoyed with minimal melting or spillage.
