A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Harry Potter, Year 3: Just got back from watching the latest Harry Potter movie. Excellent special effects. It follows the plot of the book pretty closely. Acting is good. Well worth the money.

One slightly annoying thing.

Readers of the books would know, but is not explained in the movie is exactly who Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs are. It would help explain to moviegoers exactly why they're seeing a ghostly stag near the end. Just a minor quibble, and I'm sure it was likely cut at the end in order to get the movie's running time down to size. The movie clocks in at just over 2 hours -- not counting the five trailers and one lame Fanta commerical.

On the trailers: The "Thunderbirds" movie slated to come out this summer looks to be the corniest of the summer fare. Just watching the trailer made me cringe. It looks to be something like "Agent Cody Banks" (which is actually pretty cleverly done and somewhat fun) without the wit. The trailer is supposed to make you want to see the flick. The "Thunderbirds" trailer failed that goal miserably.
