I saw Dogma Friday night. Overall, I enjoyed it quite a bit, though the ending was a little weak. Definitely worth seeing (if you don't think you'll find it too offensive) - I mean, how often do you really find a movie which deals positively with issues of faith and religion, shows faith in a positive light, poses thoughtful criticism of the Catholic church, and has a lot of dick and fart jokes?

Finished Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone last night. Enjoyed it as much as the others, though I think it's actually the weakest of the series.

Looking through Amazon's customer reviews of the Harry Potter books, the sheer number of "This is the best book in the world!!!" reviews is frightening. Still, I think it's a good sign - how many of those people might otherwise be reading nothing at all? And once they're hooked and run out of Harry Potter books, they'll be forced to turn elsewhere for their fix...
