I haven't been this excited for a movie release since Romeo and Juliet and Titanic as a teenager. Remembering that other teenagers virtually ruined my viewing experiences for those and wanting to avoid all such moviegoers, Suz and I went to the 11:30 showing at the Showbiz 8 in good old MF. It was perfect thanks to my incredible Jeffrey (who, by the way, thinks i'm a total nerd for this and has tried numerous times unsuccessfully to hide the books or my booklight to keep me from reading them over and over in bed.) He watched both of our kids on an extended lunch hour. It felt so decadent to sit in a movie theater during the day and the movie did not disappoint these hardcore fans. Now we just have to pray it makes enough money to warrant the filming of the other 3 books and wait for those!
