Thing1 and Thing2 are both fans of the Harry Potter Books. So much that both have their own copes as they won't share. I've never read the books but I have enjoyed the movies. So on Black Friday, rather than shopping, we went to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on the local "ultrascreen". It's a 75 foot screen and makes for a fun movie experience. Thing1 and I saw Episode III at this theater and it was a lot of fun.
Back to Mr. Potter - this is a very good movie. Probably my favorite and it earns the PG-13 rating. Kids under 10 should NOT see this movie. 11 and 12 year olds - it depends on the kid. If they have nightmare problems or scare easily then don't take them. On the other hand if they know fantasy from reality they will probably enjoy this movie.
