I will. I can't even remember how the story went for this one, its been a long time since I read the book, so it will be a nice watch I think.

I am going to watch it. And later going to buy it. I really like the stories. The movies seem to improve every time.

I already have the game. I really liked it, it looks good, but the problem is that i finished the story in a few hours :(

I will watch it. I haven't got the game since the chamber of secrets so I may buy a Harry Potter game for the first time in like 7 years.

Got tickets to a pre-showng on Tuesday, but can't wait. :D I'm OBSESSED with the Hardy Potter series, read every book multiple times, but GoF eight times. HBP wasn't bad, not my favorite, not the worst. :)

I will see it eventually, though it has been two years ago since I have last read the books. Half-Blood Prince is easily one of my favorites, with the Order of the Phoenix coming closely after it.

I'll be going to see it! I like how they have added a darker feel to the more recent movies.

My Cousin and Sister (who have been diehard Harry Potter fans since the first book came) say that the movie sucked compared to the book. My sister says instead of focusing on the horcruxes (+dumbledore and harry, which leads into #7), they focus on Hermoine, Ron, Harry and Ginny's friendship and that [censored]. The movie is bad. I suggest watching Up or Transformers.

I disagree, I'm a diehard Harry Potter fan, read all the books, and I thought the movie was amazing. It didn't follow the book perfectly, but I've grown out of that and realized they're entirely different mediums. It is, by far, in my opinion, the best of the movies yet. I really enjoyed it, and I thought they set up the movie perfectly.

The casting was great for this movie, just like in Order of the Phoenix. :)
I was glad that HBP (my least favorite book) became one of my favorite HP movies.
I wish the GoF movie had been better- I hated it, but I thought the book was excellent. :(

I liked only the first two parts of Harry Potter. The next parts are to ripped... well, there's nothing strange about it - it's impossible to fit 400 page book into a 2 hour movie. But I will watch the sixth part anyway..

The movie was indeed, excellent, though I did notice that multiple things from the book were excluded.

Fun fact: HP7 will be in two parts. I.E... HP7:1 and HP7:2.

Yeah, I saw it with some friends the night it premiered. It sucked,there was no story, just the relationship of the friends.

I stopped watching/reading anything Harry Potter related after the first movie came out. It wrecked the series for me.

I have the last book, but didn't get to read it :( I have no time. I'm required to read other books by school now.

I really don't like the movies too much though.
