About that "inevitable"

One of Julia's arguments regarding the non-scariness of Harry Potter was that she had been over at someone's house and seen "some little parts" of it.

Comments by Julia during the movie:

  • That's Harry's enemy.

  • This is the part where the ghosts come zooming in through the tables.

  • Those are the staircases that change.

  • This is where Harry flies really fast to catch the other boy's remembering thing.

  • It's a Nimbus 2000.

  • Ron and Hermione go with Hagrid and Harry has to stay with Draco.

  • It's the Invisibility cloak.
The precognizant patter tapered off a bit during the last 25% of the movie, but she still batted nary an eye at Professor Quirrell's possessed head, or his turning to ash and crumbling into cinders (while still trying to chase Harry), or the evil lord's passing straight through Harry's body in smoke/spirit form once deprived of his host body, etc., etc.

Final analysis: "Let's go rent the 2 right now!"

I'm still holding out for watching each of the movies myself first, just so I know what they'll be seeing, but I guess there's no stopping progress.

(Additional Fun Fact: When we stopped by the house where Robin spent the night last night, the friend's mother said the girls were asking to rent Harry Potter and she wanted to make sure Robin was allowed to watch it.)

Hmmm. I precognize that there must have been Harry Potter discussions whilst at school yesterday.

My 6 year old has read and watched both 1 and 2. We usually skip over the scariest parts in each video, but she absolutely loves them. We told her she has to wait until she's 7 to read 3, and probably longer to see the movie. That's when they start getting much darker. Dementors bring it to a whole nother level.
