Harry Potter

I figured since I'm reading what some of my friends liked, and disliked about the movie, I would join in on the action as well!

I'll start by saying, I love Harry Potter. I remember being in 5th or 6th grade, and the Sorcerer's Stone was at the book fair. I, of course, didn't care. There was no way I was going to waste my time and money reading a book. I'd rather be outside playing. Then, in 6th grade, I remember seeing a picture from the newspaper taped on my teachers door, it was of Dan, Emma, and Rupert, saying they were cast to be in the Harry Potter movie. It's a huge movie that I've loved since day 1. Growing up, I remember going to the Harry Potter movies, and Lord of the Rings movies. Then I remember going to the Harry Potter movies, and Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Then, those other cool movies sort of ended, but the Harry Potter movies continued.
I am very sad it's over. But I'm so happy that I have these movies to watch for the rest of my life.

Here is how I feel about the movie: (spoilers)
  • The beginning moved way fast! Before I knew it, they were at Hogwarts!
  • I wish they would've explained the 'alarm' that went off when they got there.
  • It's okay with me that they didn't explain the story of Ariana, because that would've taken a really long time, and it would've been a very random thing for people who only watch the movies.
  • The first time I cried was when Harry came out of the tunnel, and surprised all the students.
  • I loved how Harry came out of the crowd, and was bashing on Snape. It was intense!
  • I love that Snape didn't fight Prof. McGonagall back.
  • I like how they added in that Neville loves Luna. haha!
  • My favorite part in the entire movie, was probably when Snape died. Bawl my eyes out. It's exactly how I imagined it in the book. I love when Snape told Harry: 'You have your mother's eyes'
  • I wish they would've shown when Fred got killed. It could've been way more emotional. But Brett liked it how it was.
  • I liked Snape's memories, but I wished they would've shown more. Like Britt said, I wish they would've really told the Best Friend story of Lily and Snape.
  • When Harry told Ron and Hermione that he's going into the Forest, Hermione gets the greatest friend in the whole world award when she says, "I'll go with you". Cried again at that part.
  • Again, I cried when Lily, James, Sirius and Lupin all came back to be with Harry. This scene was perfect.
  • Me and Brett are mainly just bugged with the Voldypants/Harry fight scene. I really wish it would've been like it was in the book:
    "The cheering crowd retreated to the walls of the hall and watched then as the two great nemeses, Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter, bantered and circled each other. Harry revealed to Voldemort that Snape had always been a spy for Dumbledore, ever since Voldemort threatened Lily Potter's life. Harry also revealed that Snape was never the true master of the Elder Wand. It had been Draco Malfoy that was the rightful master, and that Harry had defeated Malfoy weeks ago, thereby gaining the allegiance of the Elder Wand. Harry suggested that Voldemort try to feel remorse, mentioning that he would become less than human if he did not, at which Voldemort was shocked. Moments later, Voldemort cast a killing curse with the Elder Wand at Harry, who simultaneously cast his own disarming charm using Draco Malfoy's wand. However, because the Elder Wand rightfully belonged to Harry, the Killing Curse rebounded at Voldemort and ended his life once and for all."
  • I think they did an amazing job on the epilogue. EXACTLY how I pictured it. Perfect in every way.
I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things, oh well.
Overall, I LOVED it. I can't wait to go see it again!
