I just got back from seeing the last Harry Potter a bit ago, and to my surprise it was probably the most intensely emotional cinematic experience I've ever had--and I'm partially regretful I didn't go to the Thursday midnight show for this reason because I can only imagine the energy there would have been even more pumped up. I mean, I have never been to a film before where EVERYONE was crying before. You could hear it, the people around you sniffling and squeaking and whimpering and all of those noises. The high school/young college guys behind me (I'm not sure how old they were, but definitely something in the 17-19 range) who had been acting "too cool" prior to the beginning of the film lost it the most. One of them actually dropped his popcorn and you could hear the carton of it hit the floor and the popcorn scatter, that was how discombobulated he was. I held on until the resurrection stone scene, and then when Harry asked Sirius if it was going to hurt, I lost it and I cried for a while. I calmed down just in time and then when Neville made his speech I lost it all. over. again.

So. Yeah. Intense.

ANYWAY. My copy of A Dance of Dragons just arrived in the mail in addition to 84 Charing Cross from Netflix. I am torn between which first.

Yeah, we didn't have any cheering strangely, though I did a quiet "Whoop!" when Neville killed Nagini. I can only imagine how the Thursday crowds were during those moments.

I read the first couple chapters last night. I have this ridiculous hope tht Tyrion is going to find Tisha, except I know, KNOW if he does she'll hate him/die/something else horrible because it's GRRM writing, but STILL! *scowls at book*

Haha, yes. The bastard.

Do keep reading! Somebody gets baked in a pie and served to their family, which is an awesome way to go. /not a spoiler because you won't realize until the same time I did ;)

We enjoyed it (in a packed 2D 3:30 Sunday matinee). Our theater did get some Mrs Weasley and Neville applause. But I found 7 part 1 to be more emotional; Hedwig was the most shocking death of the series. This one seemed a little bit like Harry Potter and the Closing of the Right Parenthesis. All of the plots were taken care of (in a good, solid way).

Although I was kind of confused for a moment at the very beginning when we saw Sirius in the hospital...only to find out it was a Batman trailer.
