Just returned home from finally being able to see The Avengers. Really enjoyed it, even more than I thought I would. A lot of the “inside” jokes and the two scenes during the credits were very good. Saw the movie in 3D but it really didn’t seem to make a difference. Of course, with my poor vision, I’m not surprised.
Now I’m debating with Husband and Youngest Son about what to watch on television tonight. HBO is premiering Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 tonight. I have them all on DVDs and Blu-Ray, but I still love watching the movies (and reading the books).
In honor of the premiere, HBO is showing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1followed by Part 2 as a sort of “mini-marathon.” HBO East is currently showing Part 2 (and I’m watching it as I write) but Youngest Son also wants to watch both which will start in about 20 minutes on HBO West. Husband doesn’t want to watch Part 1 but I think he’s been outvoted on this adventure.
And I still think Warner Brothers and J.K. Rowling missed the boat when these movies could have been shown back-to-back in the theaters during the release of the 2nd part. I can do 2 in a row, but if they ever try to show all 8, they’ll need to provide lots of caffeine and blankets for naps.
