Agreed. Though I thought PoA was pretty neat to look at. Nice movie making and all.

I came out of Order of the Phoenix literally depressed. In spite of my efforts to not get my expectations up.

Seriously, no one has done these movies right, but I get caught up in the hype and enjoy the shared cultural experience anyway.

Interview with Daniel Radcliffe where he discusses how the movies will be broken up. There's also a link at the end of the article to production stills.

This baby is "due" within days of DH release. I am praying I go to 40 weeks, 3 days but I've been having a distinct feeling that I won't be getting to 40 weeks this time. (DS was born at 40 weeks exactly!)

ETA: I WILL find a way to get to the midnight release of this no. matter. what. I've never missed a midnight book or movie release in the entire history of the midnight Harry Potter release phenomenon.

Good luck, Rebecca! Today I informed the midwife that I wouldn't even consider an induction before November 19. When I explained it was because of DH, she honestly seemed to understand. Now let's hope the babies are just as cooperative!

Well I have taken the Friday off that the movie comes out and we are talking about being the bad parents and taking DD to the midnight movie and ditching school on that Friday! DH said "how cool would it be for our parents to have done that for us!" - Totally cool!

Absolutely! I begged my mother to take me to the midnight screening of Fellowship when it came out, and it's a great memory.... even if she accompanied me and the first thing she said afterwards was "I didn't much fancy her [Galadriel's] hair". Seeing a movie for the first time surrounded by geeks is an awesome experience.

My sister and I just finished watching through the first 6 movies, so we're ready for November. Not sure if we'll make a midnight showing, though.

You guys are too funny. I've agreed to let DD (14 y.o.) go to the midnight screening with her friends. She floated a balloon about missing school that day too, which is actually a Thursday, correct? Something about getting to the theatre early.... The balloon didn't fly too high before it was shot down.

She didn't seem particularly thrilled with the suggestion that DH and I might want to attend the midnight show either . I pointed out that if she's expecting a ride, I'd need to do something while she's at the show.

I think you're the best mama in the whole universe. Seriously.

I've accepted the fact that I cannot go to the midnight showing. However, in the back of my mind I am betting that I still try.

But I'm going, dagnabbit. I posted this in my DDC, but I had the following conversation with the Very Cranky Midwife:

HER: If you behave and do what we say, there's no reason you shouldn't go to 38/39 weeks.
ME: Good, as long as I go until 11/19. I want to go see Deathly Hallows.
HER: WHAT?!?! You'll be in bedrest.
ME: What's the difference if I'm resting at home or resting in a movie theater?
HER: Your water will break in the theater.
ME: Good. Then I won't have to clean it up.

They think I'm crazy.

We usually have homeschool co-op on Fridays, but the 19th is presentation day, so we're going to bag it and go to the earliest show. And then maybe again later that day. I usually see each movie 5-10 times in the theater and I won't have a lot of time to fit it all in.

I truly hope you get to go, Annettemarie! Though I imagine sitting for two hours in a theater seat will get pretty uncomfortable for your pregnant self.

You could put down one of those big, blue, absorbent hospital chucks on the seat...

They're seriously talking induction because of my BP issues, but the midwife is willing to wait until after the 19th if the babies and I are doing OK. She seriously suggested going to the midnight show and then showing up at 9 AM on the 19th, LOL! Sooooooo excited.

 

 

post #55 of 71

Well, I'd :hug: you but I can't find the #@$% HUG smilie.

 

ANYWAY, hurrah!  I hope your bp behaves itself.  Even more exciting, your little ones are almost here!!! blueman.gif<-------- That's because I can't find the hyper bouncy smilie.

My fingers are crossed for you, annettemarie!  I think your midwife's suggestions is awesome.  Seeing the HP movie would be a great early-labor project.  And probably good for your BP. 

 

I'm taking dd to see the movie after school on Friday because I can't go to the midnight showing and then teach the next day - sometimes teachers can't be the cool parent, but I found her a Gryffindor t-shirt, so I'm doing OK.

This is so funny.  I actually went into labor as soon as we got to the theatre to see Half Blood Prince.  Still stayed for the whole thing though :D.  I was a little worried about my water breaking while we were there though, especially because DH picked us seats on the front row of the back half of the theatre, so we could put our feet up on the railing that separates the seating from the aisle.  There is one row of seats under the railing in the aisle, probably for wheelchairs etc, and I didn't think that the people below me would appreciate being splashed by amniotic fluid, LOL.  Luckily it didn't break until 4 hours after we got home.

Oh wow! I'm glad you made it through the movie, LOL!

 

Well, I'm not attempting the midnight show (probably) but the earliest showing is 10 AM Friday morning, and I'm taking my two oldest. Then that night we're getting a sitter and DH and I are going out to dinner and to see it together. And I will definitely find a way to see it again on Saturday, and maybe Sunday and/or Monday as well. This is perhaps a little obsessive, but I know I saw HBP 9 times in the theater and OotP 11, so when you think about it 4 or 5 times actually shows a lot of restraint.

post #59 of 71

DH and I are going to see the movie on Saturday. I can't wait!! I'm 19w pregnant so I'm hoping I won't be miserable. I was big when Order of the Phoenix came out and it was miserable. So worth it though!

post #60 of 71

Seeing it 4 or 5 times before the babies come sounds like a good idea to me!  I've still only seen HBP the one time, and despite my labor being really mellow, and even sort of enjoyable while we were at the movie, the rush of the birth and new baby stuff right after has nearly wiped the whole movie from my memory.  I'm really familiar with the story from the book, but when I try and think of scenes that I know were in the movie, I can't remember what they were like at all!

 

Still, it makes a good "where were you when labor started" story.  There were lots of jokes about how the baby must have been so excited about the movie he decided to come out and see it himself, and how we should consider naming him after one of the characters (it took us about a week after the birth to pick a name).
