|Haven't read the books, saw only a few of the movies. But couldn't miss the last one!|
I really liked the army of massive stone soldiers that came to life with a spell; the multiplying tumble of golden treasures; the magic wands; the black-gowned students; the tiara with the blue stone; the mirror with Harry's image in it; the painting with a real girl in it; the elaborate robes, hats and makeup; the evil personalities, all drama and doom; the clear goodness of Harry & Co.; the flashback to the hero as a baby in his crib; and the undercurrents of love stories, fulfilled and not. And of course, Professor Minerva McGonagall--Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and Head of the Gryffindor House--again played masterfully by Maggie Smith. Also, who doesn't adore a good fast-forward to the future at the end of a movie? Irresistible plum. Hearing about that made me really want to see the film.
Nice way to spend a summer evening.
- Took a short walk.
- Stared down Nesquik at bagel shop.
- Went shopping with friend Barbara--last day of deep Lilly sale. Then we stopped by to show loot to pal Anne, who had to miss the escapade. We did get a Lilly planner for her. Barb got a lovely maxi dress with halter neckline. Fashion is TCOY!
