HARRY POTTER
AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS - PART II

Itís funnyÖI just went back and checked out all my previous reviews for the Harry Potter films. I used to put much more effort into these things. I am ashamed. Found at least one typo, too. Also, at first there was no rating system, and then there was a starred rating system (well, pentagrams, really). Anyway, the only consistent thing about me in reference to HP is loving the books, and thinking the movies got better and better.
If you wanna see for yourself :
HARRY POTTER and the SORCERERíS STONE
HARRY POTTER and the CHAMBERíS OF SECRETS
HARRY POTTER and the PRISONER of AZKABAN
HARRY POTTER and the GOBLET of FIRE
HARRY POTTER and the ORDER of the PHOENIX
HARRY POTTER and the HALF BLOOD PRINCE
HARRY POTTER and the DEATHLY HALLOWS Part One

So itís over. The magical movie series based on the even more magical book series that made reading popular again. The series that so many kids have grown up with. Itís all over. What a great and wonderful trip itís been.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two picks up right where the last film ended, and things donít look good. It annoys the hell out of me that some people whoíve never read the books or seen all the movies call this kid stuff. This is a dark and powerful movie (and series, really) where actions have consequences and death is not only possible, but probable. This particular flick is seriously dark and solemn, with hardly a light moment to be found.

HP 7 Pt II is a great movie, and I have no complaints. It did have flaws, especially at the very end, which I knew would be tricky to translate to film when I read it in the book. But overall this is a great finish to the movie series and it saddens me to think itís over. I would love for JK Rowling to write more adventures from the Potterverse, even if Harry, Ron, or Hermione werenít involved. Thereís so much to work with, and thereís definitely two people I would love to learn more about, but I wonít name them as to not be spoilery in any way.

Iíd like to thank all the great cast members for their great performances, from the main three, to the lesser known students and of course the professors. Big round of applause to David Yates and Steven Kloves, and of course to Chris Columbus and Alfonso Cuaron, and especially to Mz Rowling for making it all possible.
The end of an eraÖ
