Harry Potter: OK, so the journey continues

I didn't realize that after the books, there was more obsession to follow. 

Oops. 

How dare I forget that the movies are just as much a part of the journey through the magical landscape that Rowling created. Reading books 1, 2 and 3 weren't as exciting because I had seen the movies, thinking in my anti-bandwagon-jumping way, "I'm never going to read a series of books everyone else is reading, because that is sooo beneath me, but I will stoop just slightly in my pop culture uppity-ness and see the movies." 

Who was that person I used to be? I don't see him in the mirror anymore. Thank God he left. What a downer. 

I am now going to rock my Sunday with some Harry Potter movie viewing, and rock it I will. While Steph is on vacation, I can gorge myself on all the Potter movies, guilt-free, and then do it all over again. Lucky enough, I have 1, 2 and 5 ready to go, but I'm desperate for 3 and 4. I'm not as excited to watch Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets because I remember them, and they were more kiddish when they were created. I'm sure they'll still be enjoyable to watch again, since I've read all the novels now, but what I really can't wait to watch is Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince because they are all darker. I enjoy the darker tones that novels ended up taking on. 

Maybe I'll even "live blog" while watching them. 

Ha ha. 

Oh, stop groaning, will you?
