Glad when it's over

"In a massive start, Warner Bros.€™ €œHarry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince€ easily scored the biggest midnight gross of all-time in earning $22.2 million as it unspooled in 3,003 runs at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday" says a news update at Variety. In comparison; The Dark Knight ($18 million) and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith ($17 million). But I'm wondering, did this movie really "earn" that money, in the traditional sense? A fair day's work for a fair day's pay and all that... but isn't it more accurate to say the Half-Blood Prince is a finely ripped male model whose years of preparation and hard work has got him this far in the game? He now just simply needs to show up to be wanted. It doesn't particularly matter that he has no personality, because it's literally the body of work you are seeing this for. potter0805-7 Virtually everyone I know has given themselves a magical orgasm in preparation for seeing this movie, with tickets booked for weeks and weeks in advance. Even one person I know saw the movie at lunchtime today, the first screening at my local cinema. Me instead? Well I will be watching my newly arrived dvd review copy of In The Loop. Better night spent I'd say. Two more to go now. I will be glad when it's over.
