Man I am having withdrawals I want to watch it again soooo badly.
If you're looking at the reviews on rottentomatoes I highly suggest ignoring the bad ones. Anyone who found this movie boring probably isn't a fan who has read the books. This movie is ALL ABOUT character development. It is definitely different from the other Potter films - but it is so close to the book its breathtaking! Much of it followed the EXACT text of the book word for word. Yes there was slow pacing in this movie - but it was very much so necessary. This book is NOT a comfortable one, so of course the movie isn't going to be either.
There were a few small changes, one was the lack of Dudley's sad goodbye to Harry. I was kinda sad that it wasn't in there, it was a great little part in the book. They also changed Hedwig's death a bit; in my opinion for the better. If I remember correctly Hedwig was just in her cage when she died in the book - but in the movie Harry lets her go before he even leaves on Hagrid's motorcycle. When Death Eaters start barraging them with attacks she attempts to protect Harry and gets hit by a spell.
Now for my favorite parts - the seven Harrys!! Man it was absolutely HILARIOUS. Especially Fleur's comment "Bill don't look at me, I'm hideous."
The break into the ministry was nice too - They did a good job putting the trio's voiceovers with the adult bodies - and well that whole scene was just pretty funny. Especially Ron and his "wife" LOL. The relationship between the trio was so perfectly displayed it brought tears to my eyes many times.
Hermione (Emma Watson)'s performance was really really good in this film. Especially when Ron came back and helped Harry get Godric Gryffindor's sword. It was PERFECT. They have all matured in there ability to act immensely! WHEN RON GOT SPLINCHED - SOOO nasty! They made his arm looks really bad - really well. haha. Did anyone else notice Ron put on a little weight??? He had little man boobies XD. It didn't bother me! I can imagine the character Ron growing up and having a bit of a gut XD.
OMGOSH Godric's Hollow. That part gave me the creeps in the book and even more so seeing it in actual moving pictures. They did Bathlida Bagshot PERFECTLY. The whole crowd started making scared noises the MOMENT she appeared on screen.
Lastly, DOBBY. Y_____Y What a way to end the film. No one made a peep during this part of the movie and it was just overall very heavy. I think Dobby's death is such an important scene - It proves precisely HOW DIFFERENT from Voldemort Harry really is. Voldemort - the man who hates anyone who is even half muggle; And Harry, who can become so sad over the death of a house-elf that he would take the time to hand-dig a grave for him.
OKAY so --- CAN WE SEE PART 2 ALREADY?????
Or at least someone take me to see part one again please!!!
Watching: Harry FRACKING POTTARRRR
