As some of you have gathered from hints I've left here and there, I'm a big Harry Potter fan. So, as you would expect, I've went to see the new movie today and thought that I would add my vote to the column of "The Best One Yet!" I've enjoyed all the movies, and I still really enjoy the more "innocent" first one, but this one really captures both the fun side and dark side of the book. Of course a lot had to be left out to avoid it being a 5-hour long movie, and it might be a little confusing for anyone who hasn't read the books.
One thing I'd like to mention is the wonderful score by Patrick Doyle. I loved John WIlliams' music and I will say that his is the reason I love movie scores, dating back to Star Wars, which came out when I was 5 years old. But, Patrick Doyle is the composer of one of my all-time favorite scores - Henry V (1989), so when I heard it wasn't Williams doing this film, I was so happy to see (and hear!) that it was Doyle. And he didn't disappoint, it's a wonderful score.
