i really liked it. i am not a big fan of the first HP book, although it made 
me want to go back and reread it. and so i shall.

for what it's worth, i'd accuse the books of the same thing. certainly the 
first couple. =)

i was unable to tell. i am too recently wrapped up in the HP characters and 
situations to be entirely sure. then again, i haven't really recently read 
the first book and i didn't retain anything but the Big Plot Points from it 
because it pretty much bored me stiff, and i went along with the movie. a 
lot of stuff is abridged, but i think they got it in there well enough to 
follow along.

the current rumor - i don't know how accurate - is that the 4th will be two 
movies. i totally love the 4th book, so i hope they do it justice. i think 
with the great cast and crew they've assembled, it is totally possible. i 
don't know about probable, but possible.
