Finally - a movie!

We see our family doctor tomorrow so we're in Mississauga tonight. We have our annual physicals tomorrow.....ick. I know that he's going to tell me to lose weight, which I know I need to do. It's hard to lose weight when you're not sure what exercises are okay. Hopefully we'll talk about that tomorrow.

My point in telling you this is that I don't have the trip photos with me so you'll have to wait until tomorrow for further updates. In the meantime, we saw the new Harry Potter movie this weekend.

The movie is ok. It doesn't follow the book as closely as the other movies because the book is so long. That's not entirey bad, except that the movie doesn't make as much sense as the book. One other thing I noticed about the movie was that there were a lot of continuity errors. Moreover, they looked like amateur errors, like the person checking was new or didn't care. I mean, Dumbledore had only one burnt hand, and it was only the one hand - yet in the movie, the burnt hand went from right to left to gloved and back. I ended up feeling like they didn't do a good job and maybe they felt that they didn't have to becauae people loved Harry Potter so much.

And the plot.... well, since some things were cut, there was a whole subplot that made no sense.

So the movie is ok but I don't think that it's worth the money to see it in a movie theater. Wait to rent it.

That sounds really disappointing :( Hopefully the next movie you watch will make up for it.
