I finally got around to checking out the new Harry Potter tonight and (embarrassingly) it was the first 3D IMAX movie I've seen. The movie was good but I think my eyeballs could do without 3D or IMAX.
Harry Potter has seen a pretty curious progression over the years. The first three movies were stellar. They made me feel like a kid again and all the magic and good-hearted adventure were buckets of fun. The fourth movie was good, but like a teenager's life, seemed to get more complicated to the detriment of the movie. Since then it's been rather dark and depressing (movies 5-8). I guess that's the way the books felt, but the movies seemed to lose their charm when the kids grew up whereas the books didn't tail off until their disjointed conclusion. I guess what I'm trying to say is that being a kid is more fun than being an adult, but I suppose that isn't exactly news.
Overall, definitely worth a viewing, though you might opt for the regular version as the only thing the 3D IMAX version seemed to add was vertigo.
Comment on the Isthmus movie reviews, write one yourself, discuss upcoming flicks, recent DVDs, and other realms in the world of cinema.
