Random update

Finished reading Harry Potter VI today. I'll reserve my comments/review until I feel everyone who wants to read it has and those who won't get around to it won't care what I say. I dare not incur the wrath of a Harry Potter fan who hasn't finished the latest book.

This one was shorter than the last one, only 650 pages. I blazed right through it. Read about an hour or so yesterday and finished it in 6 today. Kinda slow for me, but I did take breaks to eat and clean the kitchen...

So, I'm off to see Wedding Crashers. Will try to catch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory later this week.

What did everyone else do this weekend?

I am impressed with your reading prowess... I rented Million Dollar Baby and was disappointed by the plot twist, I lowered my rating by two stars just because of it. Aviator should have won in retrospect. I had my latest Screenwriter's Group meeting and I was emasculated so I spent the remainder of the weekend wondering what I was going to do on my story (and with no alcohol too!)

I, too, read it yesterday. Loved it. The scene with the chalice and the potion near the end was brilliantly constructed and genuinely heart-wrenching.

I finished The Da Vinci Code (ugh) to clear room for Harry.

Got stalled on my current feature script (by an issue related to your Subtle Hero post, Craig, oddly enough) and so jumped tracks to work on my Cold Case spec. Why, for the love of Mike, is there no easy way to look up the release date of a song? Grr.

I hope I helped, rather than hindered.

Kira said...

Helped/confirmed. :) I ran into a corollary thought about the heroes of horror and disaster movies. I may write a comment for your thread or a new FH post on it tonight instead of actually working. Heh.

I just picked Half-Blood Prince over lunch. I couldn't pass it up when I saw the local B&N was already selling it at 40% off. Now I just have to find time to read it.

I read it, too. & I posted a couple of blogs about it on my new website, if anyone wants to view it.
