Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The end of an era.  The end of a saga.  I want to start over.



If you have not seen any of the Harry Potters, do not, I REPEAT, do not just start at the end, or dear God at the middle.  Please do yourself a favor and start at The Sorcerer's Stone so you can grow to love this phenomenal and fantastical epic.  It is so fun to get lost in the magic but also to connect with the humanness of the tale's characters.  Sigh.  Sob - it's over.

Anyway, I frankly do not want to tell you anything about this movie other than this:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAMAZING!   Incredible.  Fantastic.  Awesome (the original awesome - not the kind of awesome that everyone flings around).

Does not disappoint.  Not to sound cliche, oh what the hell, it helps to have read the books.  SORRY!  But it does.  At least I can go back and read them all again and since it's been so long, I am sure I have forgotten many details.

Thank you JK Rowling for creating this fantasy world in which we all got so wrapped up.  These are modern classics that have lessons hidden in them like adding carrots to spaghetti sauce.  Good for you and enjoyable.

Also, this HP was the 4th HP that Danny and I have seen together.  Our very first date was to see Order of the Phoenix in July of 2008, then the Half Blood Prince in July 2009, Deathly Hallows in July 2010, and finally HP 7.2 in July 2011.  Each movie came out in July right around the 17th and we always went to see HP on the anniversary of our first date.

I agree...this movie was amazing. And I too want to start the series over again. :)

I want to see 1&2 back to back now.

I loved it as well! There were a couple parts that I didn't like. I really loved the end of the book when they were grown up IN the book, but not so much in the movie.

I also kept thinking there was more action that should be in this movie, but haven't read the book in awhile and forgot it wasn't all like that.

But like I said....LOVED it and was still a great way to end the series. Can't believe it is finally over, that is so strange!

P.S. I love Snape.

Years ago I had read all of the HP books EXCEPT for the last one ... so, I've started reading all of them again. I just started Goblet of Fire last night. My plan is to read all of them in order then to watch all of the movies in order. I was hoping to finish all of them while the last movie was still in the theaters so that I could see that one in the theater, but I don't know if I can do it!
