I finally got to out today to celebrate my birthday. We were supposed to go the Monday before last when my mom had taken off specially for that reason, but she had to go to the hospital for her arm, then she worked last Monday. So I was probably the last Harry Potter fan to see the 6th movie in a countries where the film has been released. I went into it expecting the worst, and it didn’t end up nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It was by no means good though, and I was distracted through most of it. We were going to see the first showing at 11:45 but we went out to eat at The Cheesecake Factory first and ended up missing it. So we had to wait until 3. To kill time and to drop off our leftover food so she could hold it for us, we went to see my aunt Cyndy where she works. We were there for a while, and then wandered around Jo-Beth Booksellers. Their manga section is pretty small, only a bookcase and a half, where at B&N it’s around 4 bookcases full. After the film we went back to get our food and stayed there for 10-20 mins. We should have stayed there longer since some bad storms rolled through. We caught the first bus pretty quickly, but were waiting a while in downtown for the second while it was storming. While going home we saw a bus stopped with police cars and down near the bridge someone was being arrested. My mom said there were police by the river too, so someone else might have jumped in. We might be going out again tomorrow with Randy (someone my mom knows) to Red Lobster, as it’s been years since I’ve been there. My mom could change her mind between then and now though.
There weren’t really any good trailers before the movie. Just a mix of kid, teen, and “adult” stuff, like that stupid Shorts or whatever it’s called, Sherlock Holmes, and 9. Sherlock Holmes looks god awful. I knew it wasn’t going to be anything like the actual stories, but it looks even more unbelievably bad than that. 9 didn’t really interest me, but I loved the song that played during the end of the trailer. It’s got such awesome instrumentals. I’ve added it to my favorites list at Imeem.
