This is Blockbuster trying to squeeze every penny out of the Harry Potter Phenomenom. I won’t be there. I wasn’t that happy with the movie.

I am looking forward to the blu-ray release of SS and COS (with the extended scenes).

Cool! We went to the Twilight DVD release party with friends and there were a bunch of people dressed in wizard robes there, One of the trivia questions was “What is behind Edward’s head in biology class?” and the HP group answered “A snowy white owl like Hedwig”. I found it very amusing but the Twilight teens did not.
