The final trailer for the final movie. It’s going to be hard to meet expectations but the trailer looks pretty awesome.

Huge fan. I have yet to read books 1 – 5 but I couldn’t put 6 and 7 down. The movies I have always enjoyed, especially the most recent ones. My favorite was the Triwizard Tournament movie. I am going to read those books (I have them) one day. Either soon or wait until my kids are old enough and read them to them. Movie 7 Part 1 was not as good as most of the movies because it was only half the book. Sort of unavoidable that something wasn’t quite right with it. Anyway, I look forward to 7 Part 2 and will miss it when it’s over (but not before a full, intensive review of all the movies to date in a long weekend). For those of you in the USA go to the Orlando theme park… but go in the winter… on an overcast day. I went there around Christmas. It was quite cold, quite gloomy weather without a ray of sunshine, and it was absolutely perfect. Loved it. (The buildings are all covered in ‘snow’ so the illusion was perfect). I wasn’t the only one who loved it. The place was JAMMED and there were hour long lines to get into stores to buy stuff (which I gladly waited because they put on a little show in the store for you). Good times.

I’m looking forward to this! I got into the books when I was a teenager, and have been following the movies when they come out, too. I’m going to see this last when I go home to the States this summer. The theme park looks incredible from the pictures I’ve seen. I hope I get a chance to visit it someday!

So, I saw the movie over the weekend and I have to say it was pretty good. A fitting end to the series though the 3D was completely pointless. (It was the only showing that worked with our schedule.) I do have a couple minor quibbles. The whole movie was shot in the dark. I know what they were going for but the print just seemed a little muddied which is a shame because the sets are really magnificent. Would have liked to see more detail. The other thing I didn’t like is the constant running around in a panic by the Hogwarts extras. I get that they were panicked by the approach of ultimate evil and imminent death and what-not but nobody could bring order? A professor to take charge and organize them? A calming spell perhaps? Harry and company run off to do something bad-ass then come back and still people are running amok for no reason other than to impede our heroes it seems. Still a good movie to end the series on.

Saw it as well on Sunday. We went to the theater on Saturday but the only showing was in 3D and we specifically did not see it because it was filmed in the dark shadows dim light and that negates any real additional pow from 3D. So we went the following day and saw it in 2D. (We liked it very much of course but we are suckers for HP.) We did see Transformers in 3D on Saturday instead and enjoyed it too! I was surprised because everyone (the critics) said it was terrible and awful and garbage. Not true. It was funny and had lots of exciting scenes. Good stuff. Better than number 2 and the leading lady was better than Megan Fox! Whoa! She wasn’t just helpless either, she was rocking and rolling with the guys.
