HARRY POTTER!!!

Yes, I wore this shirt.  You know you're jealous.
I FINALLY got to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 in theaters!!!

My opinion?  I cried.  I cried for many reasons.  Because it was the last film, because I remembered what made me emotional in the books, because it was just the culmination of so much and so many years...

I do think that this is a movie that you can't watch without seeing at least Part 1.  I'll definitely be getting the collector's edition set of all the films and watching Parts 1 and 2 back-to-back, because I think it just kind of starts in the middle of everything.

I honestly thought they could have made some parts shorter and others longer... more of the battle, the deaths, the emotion.  I feel like there was so much and it was hard to put it all out there.  Translating from book to film is difficult, and I think the books will always be superior; the films are just an augmentation and something I appreciate as a companion to the novels.

I did worry a bit how they would do the whole '19 years later...' part of it.  I do think the actors did a good job portraying themselves as older (with the exception of baby-faced Bonnie Wright as Ginny, she just isn't a convincing matron!), and it was done well.  Kudos.

All in all, I loved it.  The most important part to me was everything involving Snape, and I felt it was done well.  I'll be seeing it again, and I'm happy.  Sigh... still can't believe it's all over.

  1. I actually thought Bonnie looked older...they didn't seem to do much with Emma it seemed. LOL I liked the epilogue though, overall. People call it corny but the book was too...it's kind of hard to NOT make it corny. haha

    Snape was amazing though. Alan Rickman did a super job. I can't wait to see the film again.
