My Thoughts:

***WARNING: SPOILERS TO FOLLOW***

Absolutely, positively, PHENOMENAL ending to a most amazing and excellent adventure.  I can’t even begin to explain how I felt watching the last HP film, but oh all the emotions were stirred up.  First of all I have to say that, for me, the last two films were the most visually appealing and well made.  Seriously I feel as if many of the scenes and settings were plucked directly from my head.  They were just how I envisioned them while reading.  Malfoy’s house, Godric’s Hollow, the Room of Requirement on Fire, the epic Battle at Hogwarts!  OMG I can’t tell you how beautiful it all was!

First, kudos to the supporting characters!  McGonagall, Flitwick, PROFESSOR SNAPE!  All just perfect.  And I adored the way Neville stepped up and finally came into his own.  I knew he always had it in him and I was so proud and happy for him.  Oh, and Mrs. Weasley!  How cool is she?  I tried to tell Belltrix that Mrs.  Weasley didn’t play that shit…not with her kids!  Loved the way she took her out! 

Ron and Hermoine, brilliant, brave, and loyal as always.  Certainly deserving of  the Griffyndor stamp.  Who could ask for better friends, and really who could be more deserving of such great people as a constant fix in their lives?  And Harry, poor, dear, sweet Harry.  Have you ever met a more selfless character?  Through the ups, the downs, in and outs he remained the unassuming boy who lived.  The anomaly who wanted nothing more than peace and a sense of belonging somewhere.  The boy who only wanted to do and be good despite all the horrific things he’d experienced in his young life.  Harry Potter is the most loveable character and he did the whole HP world proud. 

My heart broke at all of the wonderful characters that we lost though.  Colin Creevey, Tonks and Remus Lupin, and damn if I didn’t get a wee bit emotional when Fred Weaseley was killed.  Fred and Dobby kinda did me in.  Man, part two was riveting, and emotional.  It was so beyond dynamic and so well put together.  I’m sad to see it come to an end.  Hogwarts, when watching and reading, almost felt like a second home.  I’ll miss it all, but take solace in knowing I can revisit this most beautifully crafted, and magical world whenever I pick up the books or press play on the dvd player.

I hope those that have seen it enjoyed it as much as I did.  Please let me know what you thought in the comments!  And if you haven’t seen it GO GO GO!  Such an AWESOME movie!

  1. So I watched the movie this weekend and I enjoyed it but I didn’t LOVE it. I was reliving the book but I felt I probably would have enjoyed rereading the book rather than watching the movie.

    I just came away thinking they shouldn’t have split it up into two movies. I would have been willing to sit through a 5.5 hour movie if there was a brief intermission.

    @ Alexis, LOL @ the intermission. The books will always, ALWAYS outshine the movies. But I do appreciate the way they put together the DH movie (both parts). But, I don’t like how they intepreted the ending, it was pretty anticlimatic. I wish they had given a little more time to the ones we lost. And they completely changed the last battle between Neville/Nagini and Harry/Voldemort. They should have used the invisibility cloak when Harry got back up (like in the book), and should have done the battle JUST as it was presented in the book. It would have had much more punch. But I still loved it. Visually it was the most STUNNING of all the movies. And when the teachers and students started guarding the school and the knights came down! WOW…that was awesome. Anywho…it really just made me want to go back and reread the whole series. I’m pretty sure thats what I’ll end up doing before the year is out. Might even make a blog event of it.

    I saw this one today and I really liked it. To be honest I wasn’t expecting much because I found part I quite boring and long, this one was the complete opposite, it felt short and full of emotions. I’m so glad I went alone and at 11am, because the theater was practically empty so no one saw me bawling when Snape died. I think it was a fairly good adaptation. I’m not a huge fan of the movies and I think that keeping the cast throughout the series was a risky move that didn’t pay off because the only good actor there is Ron (I can’t remember his name), but this one is hands down my favorite of the bunch and it was a great ending. The only thing that bothered me was that the final battle was all private, that scene in the book is fantastic because Harry goes all “F**k you Tom! I’m in charge now, say my name bitch!” And he does it in front of everyone, and in the movie it was almost anticlimactic, just like Neville killing the snake, they ruined that too! Actually, that bothered me even more!

    @ Brie, I TOTALLY agree. I hated the way they changed the ending but it as still good. And I also love when “Harry goes all “F**k you Tom! I’m in charge now, say my name bitch!” LOL. That’s totally why I hated they changed it. And they should have let Neville shine the way he did in the book as well.
