I just got back from seeing the film!
I have to say that it was very excellent! Although I stopped reading the series at Order of the Phoenix, mostly because my mind wandered to different interests, but I could actually somewhat understand the plot.
I got very attached to the characters and emotional at certain parts. Well, you know..
Also, I do miss the original Dumbledore actor. But these things happen.
I'm excited to see the next one...
Also, I really, really disliked Lavender. She seemed to have no purpose to the plot whatsoever except to goggle over Ron. I guess it brought him and Hermione closer, but Lavender just seemed too creepy and obsessive. Rubbish.
I'll be honest, and I will get flamed for this, but I never liked Snape from the start.
Same with Draco. I guess because I don't tend to like their pure evil tendencies.
