Oh, my heart. At midnight last night I went to see “Fantastic Beast and Where to find them”. It was amazing. And I loved how you could see the fans in house scarfs, costumes and full of excitement. It was a little to crowded to get good pictures, so unfortunately I don’t have that many.
I wanted so bad to take one of these with me. Maybe I’ll ask them if I can get one when the movie is no longer screening.
I guess you can’t really tell, but this is the ticket for the cinema. If you look closely you’ll see the word “Fabeldyr”, which means Fantastic Beast. As you might also see, I saw it in 3D. They also had a 2D screening, but we chose the 3D. It was great. A few moments the subtitles were hard to read because of the 3D-effect, but mostly it was great. I think it might brought a little more life to the creatures. But I guess the movie is fantastic in both 2D and 3D.
A couple weekends back there was a Harry Potter evening at the student center in town. The man who translated the books into norwegian was there. His name is Torstein Bugge Høverstad ( a very norwegian name). To us, that was very exciting. He is the one who opened the world of Harry Potter to us. As children we were far far far from fluent enough in english, to actually be able to read the books in english, so we needed them in norwegian. And this man made it possible.
At first he talked about how it was to work with the books and make proper translations. What was his process, what of his work was he satisfied with, and maybe some things not that much, etc. He also answered some questions from the audience. And then the most thrilling part. He is the one who made the audiobooks in norwegian, and therefore he read an excerpt from Order of the Phoenix. It was so much fun to hear him make the voices of different characters and tell the tale of Harry Potter.
After I dragged my friend over to him to get one of my norwegian copies signed by him. Just under the part that says “Translated from english by Torstein Bugge Høverstad”
So much fun. Totally worth standing in line for. Fortunatly I was there early, and they actually had to close the doors very quickly, because pretty much every Potter fan was in that line, and the room could not cope.
At last I finished editing the video I made when unboxing the October’s box from Geek Gear. So here you have it;
