question of the day: Do you do homework before you see a movie that’s part of a series?

A theater in Chicago is offering a free Harry Potter film festival, showing one film — for free! — in the series for one showing each, starting today and running through Tuesday, so that fans can refresh their memory or so that catchers-up can get up to speed before Half-Blood Prince opens with midnight shows late Tuesday night.

Which makes me wish I had time to rewatch the whole series before my screening of the new film on Monday. Which prompts today’s question:

Do you do homework before you see a movie that’s part of a series? Do you rewatch previous films, if you’re already a fan, or do you watch previous films for the first time rather than jumping into the middle of a series?
(Completely unrelated to the question: Hollywood Blvd., the Chicago multiplex that’s running the festival, sounds awesome: “The Hollywood Blvd Cinema is the Worlds First & Best Premier Movie Going Experience, with full service to each and every seat in our fully integrated Restaurant, Bar and Movie Theater. We seat you in high-backed leather executive chairs in beautifully and individually decorated auditoriums featuring DTS and all the latest Dolby Technology. We bring you movies the way they should be seen, in class, style and comfort like no place else on earth.” Why isn’t there someplace like that in New York?!)

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me.)
