Wasn't the movie awesome?

And now that most of us have seen it, let's be honest and admit a few things here

How many wanted to yell "BACK THAT FILM UP" at the projection room when Dumbledore walked out with that knitting magazine, Knitter's Own? Oh come on, you know you did. I know this because I was biting my tongue to keep myself from doing it biggrin.gif

And yelling 'pause' it when Hermione wore that lovely knitted cap so you could get a good look at the stitches? Oh don't tell me you didn't. I heard you echoing it right behind me! Same when Molly Weasley appeared in that sweater too!

The costumes.... the props.... all of it so amazing.
