I didn’t even watch transformers. I am embarrassed for all the Americans who flock to the theatres to see dumb movies.

I saw Transformers 2 and didn’t like it…. ya’ll are right, it had an awful and boring plot. Most people saw it for the effects though probably. But still glad HBP came out close to the top… I saw it three times in theaters, so my money helped out of course! :) LOL

Ok, so I’m hoping a lot of people will see this, but I wanted to find a site with a lot of Harry Potter fans to get opinions. I finally posted the video of the premiere of my version of “The Phoenix Lament” and I wanted to get a lot of people to see it to see what they think. So any fans out there, please go to the link below and listen to it and tell me what you all think being die-hard fans yourself. Thanks!!! SiK1Y

I read that article yesterday on Yahoo news and I have to say that I’m DELIGHTED (no ECSTATIC) that HP beat out New Moon. After all the hype about New Moon, I was a bit worried that it might beat out HP but thank God there are some people with good tastes out there. Not surprised about Transformers beating out HP even though I’m not sure it’s rightly deserved. My husband saw the movie and didn’t think it was as good as HP. At least HP is #1 outside of the US.

I’m still disappointed because OOTP has about $10mil. more. HBP was so much better!
