    Nice. I'm about to be hitting up the

    Calgary International Film Festival. These are the films I'm definitely seeing. Maybe more depending on finances and work schedule.

    Moonlight, Operator, Mean Dreams, Lavender, Hello Destroyer, Kiss & Cry, The Unseen, And Punching The Clown, Slash, Always Shine

    Watched A Walk In the Woods last night. It's light but we love hiking and Robert Redford so enjoyed it.

    Fantastic Beasts. It was ok. But not particularly good, and a big disappointment for me

    At this point the Harry Potter franchise would probably be doing a lot better if JK Rowling just made porn with all the cast members of the films and went Kardashian on that Magic

    Jolly gee maybe the Harry Potter movies are really knock offs, My entire childhood is shaded in conspiracy. That and all the programming from Disney films

    Not a fanatic. I do like the movies a lot, and really enjoyed the books, as I was the perfect age for when they began coming out. I'm a big reader, and the Harry Potter books are what got me hooked on books as a kid.

    I do like the movies a lot. I love the books. Thought the last couple films got to be a bit much.
