Harry Potter times two

Went to see the Harry Potter movie yesterday and enjoyed it quite a bit. I didn't like the book, but I thought it really benefited from the cutting necessary to make a movie. In particular, I thought that Umbridge was less annoying when her role was cut down, and the overwhelming anti-Harryness of the beginning of the book was nicely reduced to just one or two scenes. And Shannon and I both thought the movie was very pretty. The battle at the Ministry was especially nice.

I'm disappointed that I can't read all my LJ friends' reactions to the new HP book, since Shannon and I have barely begun reading. I don't want to be spoiled, but I wish I could participate in the discussion. I won't be able to find all those posts again by the time I've finished the book. Ah well.

Your capsule of the movie is almost exactly like Matt & Janet's, which is especially interesting to me because all the other reviews I've seen/heard have said the movie is not as good as the book. Me, I haven't read the book, but I'm seeing the movie on Friday and looking forward to it.
