I. Saw. The. Movie.
The field trips that my school offer are all places that you'd go on a first date. October, we went bowling. Today, we went to the movie theater. And coming up, we're going ice skating or laser tag.
I rest my case.
Anyway, when your school picks to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, then it isn't too bad. In fact, it's not bad at all. It's wonderful. I LOVED it.
A message to all those critics out there insulting the movie: Usually the Harry Potter movies leave everything out and make the story too hard to follow, but this one was amazing. I'm telling the truth. So to those people being mean, just shut your mouth. It was awesome, I'm telling you.
You must go and watch it.
We actually walked to the theater, since it was near our school (not that near). But anyway, this theater was huge. The theaters that I have been to before have all been small and crummy. But this one was HUGE.
Our whole "house" was at this theater (House-it's basically like Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin from Harry Potter, except that we don't sleep there or anything. Haven't I explained this? Forgive me if I'm being repetitive), so since that's about 350+ people, we had to rent out a whole theater room place just for this field trip.
After we were settled and found our seats, we were allowed to go and get snacks at the concession stands, where there was a HUGE crowd. I waited there with my friends for TWENTY MINUTES, and then I heard a teacher say, "These kids are acting like they've never seen food before. The movie started ten minutes ago..."
TEN MINUTES AGO?!?!?!?!?!
I stuffed my money into my pocket and left the line, heading towards the theater room. Then I heard a kid saying, "It's only the previews."
Ohhhhh. As much as I did like watching the previews, I could live with it. I got back in line.
"No, the previews are done. The real movie actually started."
I made a mad dash for the theater, stumbling and flailing my arms around, because you know that's how I roll. By the time I got in the theater, I knew it was a really intense part, cause Voldemort was on the screen and everybody was quiet.
I got to my seat and tried keeping up from where the movie was. It wasn't hard, but I was seriously bummed about missing the beginning.
My friends came about twenty minutes after this. I lunged for their popcorn before they could sit down.
And WOW. The movie was totally worth the seven bucks I paid for (tickets are half off on Tuesdays). If you're reading this, you need to go and watch the movie, whether you read the books or not. I barely read them, and I forgot everything pretty much that happens, and MY GOD, it was so good.
Are you convinced yet?
After the movie, it was pretty boring. We went to McDonald's. I didn't buy anything because I was too lazy to wait in the huge lines. I was going to go across the street and buy a gyro from one of those street vendors, but there was a big line by them too, so I thought, What the heck. I'm not hungry anyway.
The movie was DEFINITELY the highlight of my day.
