Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 was one of the best movies that I have ever seen. I loved Lord of the Rings, all three of them, and I went to all of the premiers but this movie topped it. Maybe because I love the books so much, I'm not sure. I know that the only movie that will top this one is Pt. 2 and Pt. 2 alone. I cannot wait.
Sure, the movie wasn't the most accurate interpretation that I have ever seen but all things considered I walked away very satisfied with the end result. Sure, there were things that irritated me a little on the interpretation but all in all... Well done. The cast, as usual, was AMAZING. Its sad to think that this is all going to be over in July but at the same time, I bet that the cast is ready to move on to something different. This has been such a HUGE part of their life, it's lasted a decade.
These two are possibly my favorite characters from the book. They could not have cast them better for the movies. I just can't imagine anyone other than Oliver and James Phelps playing the Weasley Twins. When Fred dies, I'm going to ball my eyes out. I probably won't be able to stop crying from beginning to finish with the last one. No sense in pretending.
I cannot wait for this man's redeeming moment. When I was reading the book, I just knew that it had to be coming. While watching the movie, even though Snape lends himself to being an evil and loathsome character, I couldn't help but have a soft spot for him. I think the fact that the actor chosen to play snape was Alan Rickman might have had a little bit to do with the soft spot. I always like Snape though... and I'll cry when his time comes too... probably more than any other character in the final movie, because of the memories and truths that will come along with it.
I can't believe that it is almost time for all of this to come to a close. I do not want it to... but someone famous somewhere once said...
"All good things must come to an end." But do they really? I'm not so sure. I'll just keep reading them over and over. I'm certain I will never grow tired of this great literature. Thank J.K. Rowling for such a wonderful and magical world. I've loved every minute of it. Every. Minute.
