Ex DH and I went to see the first HP film together when DD was a toddler - it was the first time we left her with a sitter. Now she's off to secondary school and even her little brother is reading the books.

Feeling old. :(

I seem to be the only person who has never been near a Potter book or movie :oops:

However I really like Emma Watson, she is my sort of girl.

I love the books but after Hp4; haven't enjoyed the films. Imho, D Yates has been a lame HP director and ruined the plot especially for hp6. :cry: Still, finales have their charm.

Anyhow, Ds1 and his pals are keen: plan to get changed at school and head off to the cinema from Kech on the last day of term to see it.

DS1 and a few friends went to see it on Friday afternoon straight from school. Bit sad really but DS2 has now "discovered" Harry and is bringing it all alive again.....

In Cineworld Touchwood the applause and cheers were during the battle, when Mrs Weasley uttered the famous "not my daughter, b***h" before zapping the evil Bellatrix. Good to see Voldemort finally disintegrate into 3d dandruff too.

I was in tears at the end- probably due to seeing those not-quite-teenagers-any-more as parents. I bought the first HP book for my DS1 when he was ten (before it was famous! - recommendation from Red House Books) and watched the last film with my DD aged 17 - HP has truly framed my "parenting teenagers" years and it feels like the end of an era for me too

I hd a lovely evening on Friday, everybody else went to see HP, and I had peace and quiet for once :D

I have never taken to the books or the films, although we always had to buy more than one copy of each as they came out to keep the children happy.

My oldest also discovered HP before it was famous, and he and my older daughter were always in competition to read them and finish first. My third is a bit like me, although was looking forward to the film.

The youngest is truly obsessed, and I am hoping now that he's seen the film, he can finally move on.
