I tried and I tried to get into this movie and I failed. I thought it was....well.....boring. I know that if you are a Harry Potter fan you will think I am crazy for thinking it was boring but I compare it to a musical that you just can't get into and you count the minutes for it to be over. I finally made myself fall asleep and when I woke up it was still going on. I have liked all the other movies but for some reason I just couldn't "get" this one. It went right over my head and I didn't understand anything that was happening. I don't read the books so maybe that had something to do with it. I love happy endings and Harry Potter movies have a way of killing off the good guys and thus showing that the good guys don't win. I know there are reasons that Dumbledore had to die but it really made me sad. I kinda teared up to be honest. Why did he have to die??? I didn't like that at all. I wish that Harry and Hermoine would end up together instead of Harry and Jenny (not a Jenny fan).
Needless to say the ride home with Adam, who is a Harry fan, was an interesting drive. Bless his heart, he tried and tried to get me to see what was so good about it. I am so glad that there are fans out there. I love watching my awesome friends get way into it and wait in long lines for the movie. I love watching their excitement, it makes me happy. But this just isn't my cup of tea. I will continue to watch the first three over and over and over because I really like those. I like the young innocence of Hogwarts. I have only seen the fourth one once and we don't even own it.
To all you Harry Potter fans. I am SO glad that you like it but I will have to sit it out from now on.
