You'd think a bit of snogging would cheer her up!

Last night I decided I wanted to go to the movies, so I searched online to find all of the movies that were playing in a two-town radius, then narrowed that down to the ones I wanted to see. It came down to:

  • Superbad
  • The Simpsons Movie
  • Hairspray
  • Becoming Jane
  • The Nanny Diaries

So I went to see... Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Again. It was nice, though, because I got a private showing. Apparently no one else wants to see months-old movies on Labor Day night (Labor Night?).

In my defense, I guessed that it would be interesting to see the film again since the first time I'd seen it was before HP7 was released. And I was right! Between the release of the 5th movie and the 7th book, I read:

There was one character that was going to be cut from Movie 5, but JK advised that doing so might create problems for later movies.

When I read that, I figured it was Percy Weasley or Kreacher, both of whom appear in the movie but aren't integral to the plot. But what I noticed last night (and laughed out loud in the the empty theater when I saw it) was that when Ron, Harry and Hermione enter the Hog's Head for their Who Wants to Be In Dumbledore's Army Introductory Information Session, the bartender of the Hog's Head is briefly viewed shooing a goat out from behind the bar. Not quite as significant as his part in the book (which isn't that significant, anyway) but that's another possibility for the character JK Rowling insisted on keeping.
