Harry Potter Nerdness or How are you anticipating HP 7?

Starting to get excited about the first Harry Potter Deathly Hallows movie? Me too. So are other folks in the literary world, notably Nathan Bransford has dedicated the whole week to HP.

Nathan Bransford

I've been watching fanmade YouTube music videos (c'mon, please don't tell me I'm the only one), listening to ORDER OF THE PHOENIX on audio tape, watching HALF BLOOD PRINCE. I listened to DEATHLY HALLOWS this summer. I haven't started reading fanfic yet, but I've done it before and I'll do it again. I need my HP fix. I can't wait to see how they portray this book--it has so many of my favorite scenes in the series. My all time favorite scene is The Silver Doe-Chapter 19. It has everything--Ron kicks butt, Snape's true colors show, Harry realizes how important his friends are, and Ron realizes [finally] his feelings for Hermione. I've got it bookmarked and sometimes I just read that chapter. Here's a good discussion of The Silver Doe.

I've got a date with my sister and cousins to see HP...but not until the 23rd. I can't wait!

So, now that I've shown my true HP nerd-ness...How are you celebrating the release of HP Deathly Hallows?

Sadly, I'm not. I haven't watched past the third movie, but I will in time with my daughter. I loved the books so much and I kmow the movies are great - we just don't go to the movies very often.

I'm a complete HP nerd. I LOVE it. But I'm not doing anything special to celebrate, just taking the family to see the film, maybe more than once!

Laura--yeah, the movies really are a different beast than the books. I don't see too many movies either, but I make an exception for these.

Matt--Great stuff! Sadly my dh is not a fan at all, and my dd is a little young yet for this one. I'm hoping to see it more than once!

I need to save a date for this one! I also need to find someone to go with me... is it playing at the IMAX?

I'll have to make butterbeer and take my kids! (though not necessarily opening week but we'll see it soon!)

I've seen the first HP and that's it! Seems like I'm missing something!

MG Higgins said...

We watch only a couple movies a year in theaters (the rest on DVD) and HP is always one of them. Like Kelly, probably not opening week (too packed and crazy), but we'll get there.

Honestly? I've been so busy with school that I forgot it's coming! But I'll have tickets in my hands as soon as they start selling.

You'll want to throw a brick at me, but I'm not into it at all! And neither are my three boys. What's wrong with us????????

But I wish you a fantastic movie night on the 23rd!

I have yet to read a HP book or see a movie. No reason actually. Just the way things have worked out. I'll make it a point to watch HP7.
