How Many Times Have You Seen Deathly Hallows?
How many times have you seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?
My plan was to see the film once. Circumstances that were beyond my control (in the form of a spontaneously combusting projector) means I actually saw it twice. The question now being, do I see it again?
The opportunity has come up. My friend who was with me at the fateful failed midnight showing would like to see the whole thing through, ending intact. Another friend who was always a fan of the books but hasn’t made it out for this film yet has expressed interest. Moreover, my sister is going back sometime this weekend and has offered it up as an entertaining night. Even my friend I saw tonight suggested it as a possibility when we were looking at what was out in the theaters.
How many times is too many times to see Deathly Hallows? At what point does it go from completely acceptable to a bit obsessive?
I’m not one to shy away from seeing a good film twice in the theaters. Recently, I caught Avatar and Inglourious Basterds twice. But three times? Four times? For a movie that long?
Here’s what I’m hoping: I want theaters to re-release Part One right before Part Two hits the big screen. Right now, I remember everything about the film, but come July I’m going to be a bit fuzzy. That’s when seeing the film again will be useful.
So how about you? How many times have you seen the film so far?
