Final Harry Potter film opens tonight at midnight. Who's excited?

There's also definitely going to be a Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer attached to the film. If you haven't seen the teaser poster for it yet check it out here: http://www.slashfilm.com/the-dark-knight-rises-teaser-poster/

Also, it sounds like there's going to be a trailer for the new Spider-Man flick attached to Captain America next week. Not digging the new costume though: http://www.latinoreview.com/news/new-image-of-andrew-garfield-as-the-amazing-spider-man-14161. It'll be interested to see how it looks on film.

There's also apparently a teaser for the new Sherlock Holmes movie attached to Harry Potter as well.

Saw the X-Men prequel a few days ago. I didn't think it sucked.

I was okay with it. Still not used to the way Marvel changes up parts of the mythology in the movies, but what can you do?

A few people talked about the Conan documentary, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

His version of The Weight by The Band was fantastic.

I thought it was one of my favourite movies of the year. There were some minor things that irked me, but overall it was great. That scene in the bar with Magneto was amazing. I could have watched an entire movie of something like that. Inglorious Basterds with mutant powers.

Watching Winnie the Pooh, and getting increasingly confused and agitated.   How can they change the characters' voices?   They kept Pooh and Tigger, thank goodness, but all the others were off, radically in some cases.

My childhood needs to give Hollywood a stern talking to.

If you go to see Harry Potter...watch it in 2D, not 3D or you may become disappointed.

I actially thought the 3D in this one was pretty impressive, especially for conversion job.

The way you light for a movie versus how a movie is played are two different things. Warner Brothers came down to watch the movie before the release and they were sorely disappointed. 3D needs more light in general and wearing glasses cuts down the light even more. So, the projectionist has to increase the lighting to 115% to make up for the loss of light. They try to circumvent this by changing the screen itself to the silver background for more reflective  properties, but it's like shuffling chairs on the Titanic.
Having said that, like I said the movie is lit a certain way, from the Director of Photography and the long and short of it until you've seen the 2D you won't really know what you missed.
If you are happy with the movie  then that's good as you are the consumer and that's what matters.

I suppose I should have mentioned that as a projectionist of the theatre I watched it in, I had a bit of a say in how bright the picture was ;)

edit: but even without that, as far as post-conversion 3D goes, this was one of the best I've seen. If not the best.
