Yay! 2 and a half hours of HBP! But if it’s PG in the US and 12 A in the Uk, what is it in Australia M or PG? Because our M is equivalent to the US PG-13 or UK 12 A, and I think pur PG is like the US PG as well

I have a feeling that WB made it PG so that more people (meaning kids) could go see it. The economy sucks at the moment in the US so it’d make sense for them to do that… well i dunno, it only my opinion

I own a movie theatre so I’m very excited about this film. This will be the longest movie we’ve played yet, so we’ll have to change our schedule. Just for this film. That will be fun.

I’m so insanely looking forward to this film, it looks like they really have included almost all of the scenes…and the ones they haven’t…for the most part I’m not heartbroken over them…6 weeks are far too long a wait!
