I sit amongst all the other people prepared to see the 5th installment of the Harry Potter movie. A certain comic
comes to mind as I see all the people from age 10 to age 40 dressed up in their Wizard and Witch outfits running around "casting spells" on me and other theater patrons. As I write this something happened and caused a multitude of people toward the front of the line to clap and cheer, then just stop..... It is funny that I am at the same place I saw the first Harry Potter movie many years ago.
When I saw the first Harry Potter movie it was a monumental event. The movie had been talked about for a good year or so and when I was finally lined up and ready to see it I couldn't wait. I do remember some peculiar things that took place during that. The most vivid memory I have is the Uber Christians that showed up and handed out pamphlets about how Harry Potter was evil and how it possessed evil qualities that could turn even the purist of people evil. Even at my young age I thought this to be a ridiculous notion and thought that it was stupid for people to even pretend that that was possible (I was then and still am a Christian, so you can see where I am coming from). In these pamphlets were "actual accounts" of people telling their stories of possessions and the like the objective of these I guess to try to sway us from seeing this demonic film.
Funny how in this many years I sit at the same place to see a similar movie in almost the exact same context. But where the hell are those uber christians????? I want a pamphlet god damnit. Anyway I will tell you guys what I think of this movie from the prespective of a person that has read the first 4 books and seen the first 4 movies but not read the 5th book.
