It was worth it.
Kim du Toit loved it as well. Most everybody who's seen it likes the darker tone that the movies and books take. And Kim's comment:
Having never been to Britain, I'll have to take his word for it. But the parallels between Dolores Umbridge and the 'Merikan Publik skool sistim are spot on.
And if nobody else can see the parallels between the British government and the Ministry of Magic, you need to see the movie again.
Anyways, I'm taking the night off. Y'all have fun.
