Nah...my expectations and hopes for star re. taste aren't high to begin with.
In the mean time, the movie is doing well and even broke box office records, previously set by one of the Harry Potter movies, in France.
It’s best to avoid disappointment, as Wildegirl has found.
Harry Potter. Now there’s another series I’ve had little to no interest in. I’ve not read the books and I think I saw the first movie on TV, but none since. Zero interest.

I'm not abroad. I'm practicing La Dolce Far Niente".
Perhaps I'm not using the word "holiday" correctly, though. When we say: "ik ben met vakantie" (= I'm on holiday), this means that you've taken time off work.
Perhaps in English, "going on holiday" = a trip away from home?
I just plan trips and events within the country.
This is where “American” differs from “English.” I’m not sure about “Canadian” though, so I’ll let Minn discuss that. For USians, “holiday” means an actual holiday on the calendar such as Christmas, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving etc. But if you say, “What are you doing for the holidays?” then Thanksgiving and/or Christmas is implied. We never say “holiday” for a vacation from work or going on a vacation. One might say, "I’m taking a vacation,” and yet not go away anywhere but stay at home. But to say, “I’m going on a vacation,” is understood to mean that the person is actually going on a trip somewhere during his vacation. To say, “I’m going on a trip,” could mean any length of a journey, but definitely means going away from home and usually at least overnight unless one if referring to LSD which hardly anyone ever does anymore.
If a USian were to say “I’m going on holiday,” we would probably understand him, but would think he was speaking fancifully or perhaps comically depending on the demeanor.
I love all these little English idiosyncrasies. I tried to get Minn to read that book Story of English or whatever it was called, but she didn’t have time to finish it. Great book. I love how the warp and weft of English changes in different countries.
