Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

This is not really going to be a review. Its more of a retelling of my night waiting in line for HPatDHp1.
The movie will begin at midnight. Me and 9 other people in my groupare going to see this movie. We bought our tickets 3 weeks ago, to a modestly sized theater. Not the biggest in town, not the nicest, but definatly not the worst. It was sold out completely of course. When I arrived at 6, there was perhaps, 20 to 30 people in line already. My husband dropped me off, and went home(He hates waiting in lines, and had to get up at 8 the next day, which I didn't). The people around me were nice, and one extremely annoying. It happens. Anyway. My sister in law arrives and we start the night. A friend of her's from work and her friend's roommate arrive and sit next to us. That is 4 already. The other five arrive about an hour later and have to go to the end of the line. There was at least 20 people between us. We had it all planned though. We would just save seats, since my group was pretty close, and even they werent the last in line for much longer.
I had bought Silly Bandz, which I don't like, but they were Harry Potter ones, which I gave out to random people.
I myself kept a Hufflepuff badger for myself, but lost it since I have small wrists.
We played Uno, looked at Wedding pictures of my sister in laws wedding and just talked. And the night went by pretty fast. I was freaking out basically the whole night. When I get excited I talk ALOT. And I was just shaking.
Around 11 people started to get restless because we had been informed that around 11:20 people would be seated. We gathered out things and stood up to wait. It was so close!
They herded us in rather well, no riots. We turned down the hallway less traveled and bolted to a theater. We got in and it was pratically empty and we picked out the best seats in the house I think. And we managed to save all the seats we needed and we all sat together.
We don't have long to wait after that. The lights dim, the crowd cheers and the previews start. Not ten minutes later the movie starts.
Do I need to review a movie that is techincally half of a movie? Why not just wait until July? I will say a few things.
They took there time. Which was good and bad. Some would find it too slow at parts and other would say it was just how the book did it.
The ended it rather well. If you like ending movies emotionally distraught. ;)
SO SO SO glad this was not in 3D. Would have totally cheapened the movie.
Thats all for now.
Nothing beats a midnight showing!
