The first movie I ever saw by myself!!
That's right! I went to see it by myself! I couldn't wait for a week or two when hubs would finally agree to go see it with me, or for my mom to finish watching 4, 5, and 6 to be ready to see 7. I had to go NOW!
I went Friday morning while all the kiddies were in school, so it was just me and a bunch of middle-aged house wives--and that one young mother who brought her crying infant with her in the back of the room. Hello... time to suck it up and get a babysitter! Don't subject all of us who paid $12 to hear the score in HD to your screaming tot.
I really enjoyed the movie... every bit of it! It's always interesting to me to see what choices they will make converting the book (which is extremely detailed) into a visual. People get cut out, the storyline gets tightened.... on the whole, I think they did very well, and I can't think of anything I was disappointed by. It was intense, emotional, humorous right when we needed it to be... I'm SO ready for part two, but I know I'll be devastated when it's all over.
I buy a lot of movie scores to listen to while I write, and I sampled this one by Alexandre Desplat (who also did New Moon--very well too, I might add), but didn't think too much about it. After I saw the movie though, I think I might ask for that one for Christmas.
Have you seen it yet? What did you think?
