    I'm looking forward to it. I enjoyed all of the films so far, Phoenix probably most of all. I just started reading the books a month or so ago, after watching the existing films. I'm on Phoenix right now and should finish it soon. While I largely enjoy the books more than the films, I do feel that seeing the movies first has somewhat diminished the books (knowing more or less what's going to happen makes the pages turn a little slower).

    I can easily finish reading HBP before the movie hits, so I'm looking forward to reading it without any film images in my head. On the other hand, I'm worried that reading the book first might make me enjoy the film less because I'll have more expectations.

    I'm sure either way I'll enjoy the film. I just wish we could get some of those PopCo figures here in the states. NECAs offerings just aren't toy-like enough for me.

    I am not a Harry Potter fan at all but my wife is. She can't wait for it to come out and after I saw the trailer, I want to see it as well.

    The way I remember it, they pushed it back to a Summer 2009 Release instead of a Fall Release.

    It looks decent enough. I look at it as an excuse to go to Imax.

    I plan on going to see it. It was a good book, so hopefully it'll be a good movie.

    Assuming they don't butcher the story like they did the last two, it should be pretty good.

    I saw a movie poster for it today and it looks like they are playing up the fact the girl is 18 now. That is all I got to say.

    I'm definitely looking forward to it. HBP wasn't my favorite of the books, but the movie looks like it could become my favorite movie, so far. There's really only two things that bother me from the trailers: 1. Lupin knowing about Draco's mission, from what I can remember of the book, he and the other OotP members didn't know about it, and 2. None of the trailers have had any mention of the HBP's potion book. We have seen a picture or two of it, but none of the trailers have mentioned it at all. I just hope it's part in the overall story isn't limited to one scene in the movie. Though other than that, everything else seems to be perfect. The Belgian featurrete seems to be the best video they've put out so far, imo:

    HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE - video - Kinepolis

    This will probably be the first HP movie I see more than once. Probably not as many times as I saw TDK last year (saw it six times in theatres), but at least twice. On a side note, I'm a little dissapointed that Lego won't be making any sets for this movie. If they had given a valid reason, like, the Harry Potter sets not bringing in enough profit compared to other themes, instead of the "it's too dark" bs reason they gave us, I would honestly be ok with the decision. They could have made the inferi less scary in plastic form. The cave would have been a great little set to get, imo. Especially with it being a crystal cave.
