was a bit boring for me and the hubby, but I have an opinion why.For those who have read the books, which I haven't, I think it was quite enjoyable to see what was written on the big screen. They could easily laugh at the jokes or understand the scenes because they already have a background knowledge of what is going on. I noticed this with a few chuckles in the audience and only two people clapped at the end of the movie. I think the audience I had kind of felt the same way I did except for the die-hard fans and book readers.I also think it was more of the British feel-type of movie. The jokes were dry and the story was spreadout and slow. If you've watched any British type of comedy or movies, you know what I"m talking about. An example is Ultravilet -- not the movie -- the 1998 TV series. Another example is The Day of the Triffids mini 1981 TV series. And not to mention the British version of Legend--the music made it so, so, so, so slow. I liked the American version of Legend better. You really have to warm up to British films and be very patient.The story wasn't very engaging to me, but I REALLY loved everything visual about the movie. Visually, it kept my interest. And though his part was small, I really liked the teeny bopper version of Tom Riddle (Voldemort). Very senister!I do like watching Harry Potter on the big Screen, but for those who don't care about that sort of thing, waiting for it to go on DVD would be okay. I must say that it was NOT a waste of time, though I do hope the next one has a bit more mental stimulation for a story line.
