How Could I Forget to Mention Harry Potter!

What was I thinking? Anyone who knows me well knows that last week, I was sitting in the theater, in costume, waiting for the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. While I must admit that my enthusiasm for the movies is a tad less than it was for each new book, I still very much adore them and breathlessly anticipate their releases.

Those that know me particularly well, know that 1. Movie 3, Harry Potter and the Prizinor of Azkaban was my favorite and 2. I can't stand Michael Gambon's portrayal of Dumbledore, much prefering Richard Harris' (from movies 1 & 2). Well, it is official. My favorite Harry movie is now Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and Gambon finially understood Dumbledore, for which I am grateful in this movie of all of them. Dan Radcliff did a superb job with Harry, and Tom gave Draco the duplicity he has in the books. Don't even get me started on Snape. I've loved him and Alan Rickman's portrayal since the beginning. He is masterful in this edition.

Anyhow, here is a photo from opening night...
