The Imax Experience

So, last night me, and a couple of fancy friends went to go see Harry Potter at our local Imax theater. Husbandless. Needless to say, it was super fun but I have 2 things to tell you.
1. Don't go see a normal movie at an Imax theater. In the end, our necks hurt and we wished we'd just gone to the regular theater. However, it was fun and this theater's AMAZING. I really want to go see a regular IMAX show there.
2. Love Harry Potter. Can't really get why so many people in the church are against it. I really love the line when Dumbledore says that this is the time that they need to choose between what is right and what is easy. I think that pretty much sums-up life. Sometimes there's an easy road to go down, which is the road many take but the RIGHT thing to do is down a more difficult road.
All in all, the movie was great. Don't take your kids, but do take your husband (or good friends).

  1. How fun! I love Harry Potter! I too don't understand why so many people are against it. We live in the Bible belt and I've never seen such an uproar.

    The books have been banned from the schools here. You can get suspended or something equally lame if you bring a Harry Potter book to school. Puhleeze! Your kids are doing drugs, they're sleeping around, they're having oral sex in the school bathrooms and you're worried about a magic going on at Hogwarts.

    My little brother who struggles so much with school wanted to read Harry Potter and has truly learned the joy of reading. It's still hard for him and it takes him about a year to read a book but he's doing it and that makes me happy.

    Long live Harry Potter! :) (ok I know that's a bit much!)

  2. I think it's funny how some people can't see past something that they think could be construed to be evil, to realize the wonderful values and morals it actually has. Love the way HP teaches some of the values...like the one you mentioned, and many more. Can't wait to see it.

  3. Wow, a girls night out sounds fantastic! Amen to the Harry Potter sentiments...it's a favorite around here. Although I did throw the new book across the room when "you know who" died...so upsetting. One of my favorite Dumbledore quotes: "It is not our abilities that show what we truly are; it is our choices."

  5. Hey - I am a "fancy" friend wow! So funny about the comments - I am glad my neck did not stay in that tilted upward position. I totally 2nd the "why is the "church" against HP"? My church is too against it for the most part but I've found some fellow supporters. What is even more ironic is that the churchgoers hate HP but love Lord of the Rings. I just don't get it?! So I don't hide the fact anymore that I like HP - darn it! Loved that line too - so true and I love how they talk about the power of a mother's love (some of the strongest magic) and how in the new book there is so much good stuff about making the right choices and not to abuse the gifts you have or you turn into a big, ugly snake-man.
