Yesterday SO and I had a date night. Not something we are accustomed to, but really it was fun. We’d both wanted to see the last Harry Potter in the cinema in 3D. We’d missed the first part of the deathly hallows in the cinema and I did regret it. We had an easy Saturday just bumming around and we took an early showing (16.50) and went out for dinner afterward.
The reason for the showing time was as we expected it not to be too busy during standard Dutch dinner time. Plus it being the third or fourth week of the movie. We were right. The cinema was not very full, with about 40 people I think.
The movie itself; What to think of it? Well I loved it to be honest. The magical fight scenes are amazing, well done and fun. Not surprising the young actors have gotten better over the years and the story is captivating. Of course Alan Rickman is wonderful as Snape. But then again I always think of Rickman as an excellent actor (and sexy too). Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort is also brilliant. The increase despair when horcruxes are found is very cool.
Anything negative? Well I heard SO mutter “orcs” a few times and the storming of Hogwarts does bring back Helm’s Deep memories. But that is really the only thing that I can think of.
After the movies SO and I went for dinner to Les Copains. To get there from the theatre is approximately 250 m. Very close, but enough to get pretty soaked that night. The restaurant was very nice. We both had lobster (me half, him whole) and I had a desert of Pannacotta with raspberry sauce, raspberries and raspberry sorbet. Delish, but it made me go burp on the way home. All I could do afterward is roll into bed and fall asleep. It was a lovely date night and we both enjoyed it tremendously.
