What’s a witch?
: Parents should be slapped for taking young, young children to Harry Potter. In front of us just now was a young boy, 4ish, who had no idea what was happening, of course, and also has not yet learned his inside voice. He’s asking confused questions every few minutes. As young Harry tries his kid-actor best to show a look of terror, the kid in front of us asked/demanded/shouted, “Why’s he scared?” Well, kid, if you want to read about a thousand pages…
: I thought the movie was better than the last two (and I didn’t like the last two much): more plotting, more characterization, more maturity, less and-then-and-then-and-then narrative.
But my son liked the last one better. And my son’s the one who’s supposed to like it.
