Funny coincidence. We just took the kids to it today, too. I agree that 
it was better done than the first, though I personally am quite happy 
that Chris Columbus is out of the picture (so to speak) from now on. A 
director can't help but leave his fingerprints all over his opus, and 
"Stonehands" Columbus leaves mighty big prints. Michelle disagrees, but 
in this, I'm right.

You should realize that not everyone is taken by the books. Our own Mark 
is less than fond of them, for example. But I think they're fun. The 
fact that a successful and entertaining film adaptation can be made by 
Chris Columbus should be evidence enough of solid concept and good 
screenplay translation of a fundamentally sound novel. :)

Not as far as I know. Richard Harris, the actor who played Dumbledore, 
died a few weeks ago. (By the way -- and I don't think this qualifies as 
any sort of spoiler -- they should have made Hagrid about twice as big. 
Ah, well.)
