good thing we needed a whole new thread for you to tell us the movie was good.  Funny how we have several movie review threads.  If people don't start actually talking about the movie here, i'm closing this thread

I'm Brittish too. I will watch the film someday but I'll probably rent it when it's on DVD. From what I've heard, the critics & public seem to like it.

I'm between really wanting to go see it and being just too lazy to go see it in theaters. Meh...
I'll just rent, or maybe buy, it when it comes out on video.

Well, it doesn't come out here until the 29th of November. I'm going to see it on the 30th after my last exam. I have tickets. I don't care what anybody else says, I will love this movie. So NER.

I mean Lord of the Rings is gonna be awsome, just AWSOME   roll eyes
You should change your mind, cause I can tell you it is gonna be an INSTACLASSIC!   big grin

I'm with Kryten. There has been little to no publicity of LOTR over here (well, in Perth, anyhoo) and I haven't read the series, so I don't really have much of an idea of what I'll be in for. I might go see if I'm bored, but I'm not that enthused about it.

I've read LOTR and the Hobbit, I love all that fantasy / middle earth, kind of stuff, I haven't read any Harry Potter books so far, mainly cos over hear the advertising is mainly directed at children but I am going to see the film.

But I really want to see LOTR when it comes out, I just hope it hasnt been 'dumbed down' too much to make it more appealing to the younger audience (i.e. kids, children, brats, you know the ones who sit behind you, kick your seat, spill drinks over you, knock over popcorn and talk nonstop through the whole frigging film "Is it on yet mum?" "I'm scared" "Mommy I peed myself" "Mommy I feel sick" "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAH".

:: wonders off muttering about when he went to see the Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition version of The Empire Strikes Back, and some $*&"!@ kid kicked the back of his chair throughout the whole *&^@?# film, and kept asking when the frigging Ewoks where coming on

Hmmmm, perhaps I should sign up for anger management classes?

Nah I'd probably end up hitting some sandles and socks, wearing, bearded nonce of a therapist.

Damn! there I go again with the anger!

ah well,   smile

But I would recommend seeing both films i.e. LOTR and HP.

But try and read the LOTR books first.

Are you a big proponent of birth control, Zombie?

In any event, I haven't come within five feet of anything Harry Potter-related, and quite frankly, I'm content.

Well I've seen lots of ads for LOTR and it will be THE BEST DAMNEDEST THING you've ever seen.  Just awsome, and it doesn't look like its intended for younger audiences (doesn't even seem to be comic relief like Jar Jar in Episode 1).  AND THE SCENERY is just exquisite.  I think they really did a good job on it.

I had tickets for the Harry Potter premiere, with jolly good seats too.  smile And I think the movie was much better than what I expected it to be (but then again, I've never read any HP either).

PS: Don't you just hate small, crappy cinemas? With, like, 50 seats and a screen that's about the size of a regular Panasonic widescreen? I love that Bergen hasn't replaced it's last big cinema with a bunch of small rooms with chairs and TVs. It makes the good movies so much more enjoyable!

ya know how kids suck?  well when we went to HP the worst people in the audience were the adults and teenagers behind us.  The damn teenagers kept talking the whole time giving the play by play.  At least they were literate enough to read the books, but they kept kicking the back of our seats and I wanted to kill them

Yeah that commercial for the Burger King cups/happy meal toys was so great. Finally, a movie us adults can enjoy!

Hooray for Hallmark productions!!

i watched harry potter yesterday and it wasn't that bad.
i have never read a potter-book and the hype around harry is annoying.
when i first saw a harry potter book in my favorite bookshop, hp reminded me of a comic book series called the books of magic. there is also a little boy (with brown hair and glasses) who will become the worlds greatest sorcerer, anyway...
the movie was entertaining, in the audience there weren't kiddys so i could enjoy the movie and i was invited to see the movie.
my vote: 6 out of 10

Hmm, so does that mean the animated series for LOTR was too underrated? I'd rather go to see this movie 10 times more than HP. It'll be coming to my cheap local theater soon, like 5 bucks a ticket. Anything magic-related seems to become dork-related whenever it gets too hyped. For instance, the Magic the Gathering card game used to be deemed cool in my high school until loads of people started buying them. Now it ain't popular no more. LOTR luckily seems to break this rule.

I saw Harry Potter last night and quite liked it; it was very well cast, and pretty true to the book. I wouldn't recommend seeing it without reading the book first, though, because the book has details that they left out in the film.

That oughta learn 'im to bust my termater.

I HATE people who talk in movies. Kids, teenagers, middle aged rednecked men... old people... it drives me up the wall. I feel sorry for you, VF, I know I won't be talking through the movie... I'll be too excited.  smile
About the movie: I was wondering, for those of you who have seen it, Is a ghost named peeves in the movie? (he's played by Rik Mayall)  it's just that I have heard that they cut peeves out and I wanted  to know if it was true or not.

don't you think that harry potter is a lot like these comics?
first: tim hunter looks a lot like harry
second: tim will be the greatest sorcerer on earth
third: he is in great danger because there are forces out there to kill him

if anyone likes harry potter, you should give the books of magic a try. these comics are available on vertigo-comics as trade-paperbacks. highly recommended!!!
