To Do: See Harry Potter in IMAX 3D

Rob and I went to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix last night at the IMAX theater downtown. The last 30 minutes of the film are in 3D, hence the killer glasses that look sooo flattering on us in the photo.

I'm not a huge fan of Harry Potter (I think I maybe read the first book) but the movie won me over. I really enjoyed the story and some of the sets were amazing (including this office).

Plus, the 3D scenes were pretty cool. Imagine how scary it is to see a 30-foot tall Helena Bonham Carter lunging at you in 3D! If you live near an IMAX theater, it's worth the extra $5 to see this movie on the big screen.

Yeah, you have to get past books 1 and 2 to get to the meat of the series. I was into them right off the bat but I read book one on a vacation, in about two hours, so it wasn't a real commitment. #2 was a bit of a slog for me but from there out they stop being goofy kids' books and get WAY more interesting. Give them another try! If nothing else it's great escapist reading for vacations, especially with the later ones where they're 700-850 pages each.
