I read over 3300 pages this weekend. What did you do?

I'm so ready for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I spent the last several days reading the entire series through volume six. I forgot how enjoyable they are, and how crazy suspenseful the the last 100 pages of Half-Blood Prince are. I couldn't sleep for a good two hours after finishing because I was so amped from those last chapters.

Frinklin and I also saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix last week and I was disappointed. Book five has been my favorite for some time (although up on re-reading, six now tops the list) and to see the story so choppy and without a single subplot included made me feel like the director put no heart into the story at all. Where was the drama about Ron joining the Quiddich team? Or Draco Malfoy? Or Hermione and Ron becoming Prefects? I understand that the director, David Yates, wanted to chop out all references to Kreatcher as well until JK Rowling told him it would be detrimental to the story if he did. Yates feels that all the films have been too long and worked hard to keep the movie shorter, which you can really feel. Hasn't he learned that people will sit through long films if they're good?

And dude - get a better special effects team together. Grawp looked like crap and the thestrals certainly could have been better.

On the upside, the acting is getting better and better. Daniel Radcliffe is the spitting image of the Harry Potter in my mind. I can only hope that the excellent peripheral actors will also sign on the the last two films.
