I actually quite like the Harry Potter series, having started reading the books all those years ago... and I thought most of the movies were quite good too.
(Goblet Of Fire was my fave, both the book and the movie)
- One of the movie posters:
... but how ah?
I was really looking forward to Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, but in the end I walked away feeling disappointed.
(Hmmm. Will I be flamed by HP die hard fans after this, I wonder?)
- A quieter moment for the 3 heroic friends:
Ok. It's not like the movie (which is actually the half of the 7th and last book) is COMPLETELY HORRIBLE....
- It's dark and raw without being completely overwhelming,
- There are some twists and "real" elements like betrayal and guilt,
- You can see how much the characters have grown, both in the literal (physical) sense and also in terms of their outlook and behaviour.
- He Who Must Not Be Named (HWMNBN) aka Tom Marvolo Riddle aka Lord Voldemort:
- OMG. Out of 3 hours, almost 1 hour is draggy filler fluff.
(I am referring to pretty much ALL the time they spent in That Bloody Tent and some other scenes where they wander around, whining)
- Completely overlooked and under utilised supporting characters,
(What? They needed more screen time for Harry, Ron and Hermione to hang around That Bloody Tent so they couldn't afford to have more time for other much loved characters like Hagrid?)
- Some parts were just darn corny and the slight (sort of) nude scene was just completely gratuitous.
(Fan service, maybe? Oh well...)
- That Bloody Tent:
Don't let me stop you from watching it, just don't expect it to be super awesome like I did and you will be fine.
- Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter
- Emma Watson as Hermione Granger <-- The brains of the trio
- Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley
- Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort
- Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange
- Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy
- Alan Rickman as Professor Severus Snape
- Julie Walters as Molly Weasley
- Bonnie Wright as Ginny Weasley
In this seventh and final installment of the beloved Harry Potter series, Harry faces new troubles; he must collect all of the Horcruxes that the evil Lord Voldemort has left behind. He has no idea where these are and he has to destroy them all, even without the faintest idea how to do so....
(Note: Synopsis adapted/borrowed from Rotten Tomatoes, which gave this movie a good rating of 78% fresh!)
