July 16, 2007: Things I Did While Watching Harry Potter

Snorted at the trailer for Get Smart!

Shuddered at the trailer for Fred Claus.

Wondered if Uncle Vernon, in tribute to Richard Griffith’s characters in Withnail & I and The History Boys, would give Harry’s balls a quick grope.

Started counting the number of shots of Harry tossing and turning in his sleep whilst dreaming about Voldemort. Gave up when I hit double-digits. Wondered if anyone bothered to tell director David Yates that watching people sleep does not make for gripping cinema.

Wished Emma Watson would knock it off with the “class president starring in the school play” line deliveries.
