It's good, but my favourite of the movies is still "Azkaban". I saw it when it was in the theatres ("Prince").

That was my favourite one of the books. And Order of the Phoenix was the second favourite. They let out an important part about the Map in Azkaban. And in Order.... no Quidditch. :eek: :eek: :eek: So far, I like Goblet of Fire the best.

think Goblet and Prisoner are my faves, not too keen on the last two films.

The entire series lacks appropriate amounts of quidditch and Weasley twins. "I solemnly swear I'm up to no good." LOL

We watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation on Christmas Day. It always makes me laugh! It's so corny but hilarious at the same time.

On Christmas day we (friends, hubbie and I) wanted to go see Sherlock Holmes but it was sold-out, so we ended up watching "It's Complicated" and turned out that I liked it a lot! Everyone at the theater was laughing-out-loud! I totally recommend it :p

Whats funny is that it has been almost universally panned by many critics - yet the full house we saw it with loved it. Its one of those movies thats not perfect (the ending, and the adult children, had me rolling my eyes) but was enjoyable entertainment. Streep and Baldwin's chemistry practically sparked off the movie screen! Oh, and we desparatly wanted chocolate cake after watching it - and of course it was Christmas Day and nothing was open!!
