Shayla has yet to attend a midnight screening so I'm trying to work out our summer schedule so she can visit the in-laws in Virginia, see the movie with me, and go to my family reunion in August.

This one will have to be my family's first foray into the midnight showings. I'm looking forward to it, but am very sad the series is coming to yet another end.

I'll probably go to the midnight screening. I did it for part I and really enjoyed it. LPO

I will probably go to the midnight showing as well, since it is summer. For Part 1, I just went to the noon showing the next day since everyone was in school. My oldest son works at the theater and we can usually get in free (if we ask but seriously, we don't like to do it often) but we would not be able to do it for the first few weeks after it opens.

I have never done a midnight showing. Not sure Son would stay awake. Finding a sitter for that late for the other kids wouldn't be an option, so I can't go with Hubby. I will likely have to wait a week or two until the crowds are smaller.

I just saw the latest preview for Part 2....

:::sniffle:::: They included a part that I was so worried they would leave out and yes, just that snippet had me sniffling.

I was so worried that we would not see James, Lily and Sirius escorting Harry but we will! I choke up every time I read that part

It was exhausting just watching the trailer! Imagine what it will be like when we see the whole movie! I'm still intrigued by the whole 'let's go together Tom' and diving off the cliff, or whatever it is, but I'm hopeful this will be faithful to the heart of the story.

My friend and I have made plans to go at midnight. I haven't made up my mind about the 3D. I think it would freak me out too much.

I really hope they stay true to Neville heroics in the movie. LPO

I'm thinking I don't want the 3D experience, either. I was kinda soured on the whole thing because the last movie I saw in 3D was just blurry and difficult to watch -- I'm not sure if it was the theater or what. It wasn't just me either, Mr. P had the same problem and we even tried different sets of glasses. Maybe I'll watch it first in "regular" mode and then try a 3D later... If the 3D is really good I'd be bummed I missed it because in-theater is really the only chance... the DVD wouldn't be the same even if I did have a 3D TV, which I don't.

Verity, I think that's great you can feel intrigued about the scene with Harry and Voldy falling off the tower/cliff together! I am just jaw-dropping, going "Whaaaaa? What is THAT supposed to be? That's not in the book!"

Off to look for previews for the part I never cry at...

Madam P, I don't want to watch it in 3D either. For one thing, as a glasses wearer, I don't want to sit in a cinema for 3 hours (hopefully - I don't know how long it is) wearing 3D glasses on top of my normal ones. I can't imagine that would be very comfortable. Also, I recently read an article which said that many cinemas don't actually have the proper equipment for screening 3D movies but just just an adapted lense on the regular projector which leads to a loss in quality. It was a very technical article but it was something like that. I haven't watched any of the other HP movies in 3D and I don't see the need to watch this one in 3D either. In my opinion, it's still just a gimmick that doesn't really add anything to the movie-going experience. It's either a good film or it's not.

Verity, I agree about the awkwardness of wearing 3D glasses over regular glasses. That would be so uncomfortable and distracting from the movie.

I intended to mention this a long time ago, but was slightly side-tracked by life at the time. While waiting for my grandson to get out of surgery the day after he was born, I was reading an article Bout the new movie in EW. It said that Snape's death takes place on an island-presumably in the lake. That was another "why?". Did anyone else hear about this?

3D or regular.....I'll take regular, please. affraid I have absolutely no interest in seeing the movie in 3D. Also, I will probably wait until the next day to see it. I have been to two midnight showings and they were fun, but I think I can wait one more day. My daughter and granddaughter may go for the midnight show and I will stay home and babysit my grandson.

Shepherdess, I think I remember reading something about that scene with Snape taking place in the boathouse - yes the boathouse that we have never seen before in all of Harry's previous six years at Hogwarts. Oh well, I guess it is more cinematic or something.

That's what I read as well -- it's in the boathouse (presumably they need a boathouse to store the boats that they use to bring the ickle firsties to the castle.) I have no idea why the Shrieking Shack wouldn't do. Perhaps because it's not directly in Hogwarts? I dunno.

Why don't they just stick with the Shrieking Shack? It is symbolic that James saved Severus from the Shrieking Shack to Sev dying there to save Harry. Kinda like Hagrid bringing Harry to Privat Drive and taking him away from there. I have to keep reminding myself to enjoy the movie, it is a different genre than the books, it is OK to change some things (OK so I have never figured out the burning of the Burrow in HBP). LPO

Amen, LPO.

We were watching HBP the other night, and at the burning of the Burrow, I noticed Molly's face as she watched it burn. It made me think of the snippet we see of Molly in the Battle of Hogwarts scene from DH-Part 2. It makes me wonder if they are going to use "You burned my house..." in addition to "You killed my son..." for part of Molly's anger against Bellatrix? (Although why you would even need the first once the second had happened is beyond me...)

Who knows Madam P! That is a good catch though.

There are some AMC theaters that are doing HP marathons starting on the 11th. You can also see DH1 right before DH2. That would be interesting. Here is the link [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just saw a released clip with Ron and Hermione destroying Helga's cup in the CoS. Maybe spitting it into two parts wasn't such a bad idea. LPO

If they do it right, we could almost forgive them the awkward dance between Harry and Hermione.

You know, I thought of that the other night, Marie. We were re-watching DH-Part 1, and there were at least three "deleted scenes" that I thought wow, they should've axed that stupid, non-canon, awkward, pointless scene with Harry/Hermione dancing. It would've been far better to show the (OK, also non-canon) scene with Hermione and Ron skipping rocks on the lake -- it showed more of their budding relationship. The dance supported some fictional 'shipper thing with a Harry/Hermione relationship instead of showing us the Ron/Hermione relationship. And I still maintain that we got shorted by them leaving out the Dursley scenes... That ridiculous dance could've gone to make room...

I agree Madame P and Marie E I would have rather heard Petunia's last conversation with Harry than see the dance scene. LPO

Against my better judgement, I found that I actually liked the Harry/Hermione dance in DH pt 1.....it was sweet and funny and a good way to show that , in the midst of all the stress and anxiety of the horcrux hunt, they were still really two kids who needed a break from it all to just do something normal and fun.

I'm looking forward to pt 2 more and more as the time approaches....and expect that I will cry at some point near the end.

I squeal like a giddy school girl every time I see a commercial for the movie. I'm quite excited!

I didn't mind the dance scene. Just a moment to break the tension, though, yes of those other scenes would have been good.

I have seen a bit with Neville holding the sword, so I'm thrilled with that.

The 3-D depends on whether it's shot to be a 3-D film from the beginning, or if they add in the effects after the fact. if the latter, then the quality is poor. if they new from the start it would be 3-D and filmed it that way, then it should be good. (That's why Avatar was supposed to have such great 3-D.)

I expect to cry through a good chunk of the movie. I'm a sap.
