But let's be real as to why I made up this meme: I just want the opportunity to post something about Harry Potter.
This week, I'm posting my thoughts on the final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I have to say, I don't think it's really sunk in yet that it's over. I'm still in shock and don't know what to think. I'll have to watch it a second time to get a full appreciation of what I saw on the screen because I was freaking out so much in the theatre the first time around.
In the meantime, here are a few frazzled and jumbled point-form-thoughts that I did manage to form after watching the movie for the first time:
- The special effects in the Gringotts Dragon Escape scene were stellar. Though I didn't like that they made it Hermione's idea to jump on the dragon when it was Harry's in the book. I think Harry is the only one of the Trio who is stupidly brave enough to think up such a thing.
- Out of my Top 10 Favourite Moments from the book that I hoped would make it into the movie, the only one that was axed was Dumbledore's backstory. So yay! that the majority made it in, but boo! that they left that out.
- Professor McGonagall is my hero.
- Ron and Hermione finally kissed and it was cute and satisfying.
- The Grey Lady scene didn't make my Top 10 Favourite Moments from Deathly Hallows, the Book but it definitely does in Deathly Hallows, the Movie.
- The Prince's Tale scene was my favourite of the movie. Lengthy and involved and crying-ugly-tears-sad.
- Alan Rickman is an Acting God.
- Harry's Walk of Sacrifice was also perfect and crying-ugly-tears-sad.
- The piece of Voldemort's soul in the King's Cross scene was even more creepy looking than it was in my head.
- Some of my favourite lines in the book including, "You've been raising him like a pig for slaughter," "After all this time? Always," "Of course it is happening inside your head, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?" and "NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!" all made it in, so yay!
- Neville Longbottom is my hero.
- The only real WTF scene of the movie was Harry hugging Voldemort and then flinging themselves off the castle and then flying around and then at one point their faces merge together? and it was weird and confusing and didn't make any sense. W.T.F.
- Scratch that: another WTF scene was when Voldemort's stringy robes reached out and wrapped around Harry as if they had a mind of their own. W.T.F.
- All the little kids in this movie in flashbackwards/forwards scenes were super cute. I just wanted to squeeze them.
- The aging process for the men in the Nineteen Years Later scene was well done, but the women looked like they had barely aged at all strangely.
Hmm, I've probably forgot many things worth mentioning. Overall, I am very much pleased with the movie. And I promise I will like it even more after a second viewing once I've calmed down and can absorb more and not be so critical. Have you seen the movie yet? What were your favourite and least favourite moments? Let me know in the comments!
