Harry Potter and the Goblet of Gravy

I've never read a Harry Potter book. I never seen a Harry Potter movie (the newest one debuts this weekend). And I don't think that's going to change.

I am with you - have not read one, have not seen one. No plans to change that. I also have never had a PB&J - which the vast majority of people seem to find fascnating and somehow un-American.

Why are so many proud of not reading or seeing something? If you actually read the books or even attended a movie, maybe you'd better understand the wide interest in this series of imaginary adventure stories. These books are like Alice in Wonderland and Gulliver's Travels - fun reading on many levels.

It is a shame you are missing it, it is terrific. They are well written, entertaining and keep you interested. Give it a shot if you start one and can't get into then stop.

I saw the forth movie tonight. It was excellent.

Ignorance has always been the most reliable commentator.

9:07 - I'm taking offense at your comment about ignorance. Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I believe it is directed at those of us who have chosen not to read these books or see this series of movies because they just don't interest us. I have nothing against Ms. Rowling or her stories - I for one am glad that they have encouraged reading amongst children...and adults. I choose not to watch soap operas or horror movies or read romance novels or economic studies. Just because a genre of literature or film does not interest one in the way it interests others - does not make for ignorance - just preference. Don't paint with such a broad brush.

Felt the same way about the Harry Potter stuff, B, 'til I saw the first movie....now? I can't wait to catch the newest one! FUN stuff--kinda takes you back to being a wide-eyed 10-year old. =)

When we go on a trip with my pre-teens, we load up Harry Potter books, not movies, and the kids read the whole way. Each time they've re-read the book, they came away with something new. That makes me a fan. I've only seen the movies and both my kids tell me I've got to read the books to really like it-but I think the movies are fun.

Poor ole Harry...movie "only" took in over $110 million in the first weekend. I saw it - but, as usual, it's NOT nearly the book.
