Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

If you haven't watched the movie BEWARE THERE ARE SPOILERS ON THIS REVIEW!

The ending of this book is more than I could have imagined. So many twists I never expected to happen. So many deaths that I wish never happened. So depressing. But the ending is what it is and the most amazing book series I have ever read is over. A perfect ending I might add.

Favorite Scenes:


~Meeting Aberforth, well not for the first time but the first time knowing who he is.

~The Room of Requirement helping those at Hogwarts who need it.

~Ron and Hermione figuring out how to destroy the Horcrux they had. Then they KISS!!

~The destroying of the Room of Requirement. :(

~Harry finding out Snape's true colors.

~King's Cross.

~Obviously the big fight scene.

~The Epilogue. The perfect ending to the perfect series!


This movie was amazing!! I went to see the midnight showing at my local theater in 3D and I was just blown away by how amazing it was. Everything was just so perfect and it followed the book so well but a few new things were added that just made the experience so much better.

Favorite Scenes:

~Gringotts! I can't believe they were betrayed like that but they did what they needed to do and got out so no worries there.

~The humor throughout the movie. The funny taunting or little side jokes during all the action. It was nice to laugh during the obvious war.

~All the magic, that was amazing. The Special Effects team really outdid themselves!

~Snape's ending and his memories. That scene took the entire movie to the next level and Alan Rickman is my favorite old actor. I don't think anyone could have done it better!

~The Chamber of Secrets.

~Go Mrs. Weasley!! You kick her butt!

~Neville was fantastic in this movie. So much humor and he really did become the hero he was meant to become.

~Voldemort and Harry's final battle.

~Of course, Ron and Hermione finally getting together!

~19 years later. I'm glad they redid it because the earlier pictures did make them all look way too old (and ugly), this new ending couldn't have been done better. It was fantastic.

Scenes from the book that should have been in the movie:

~Us finding out more information about Dumbledore and his past. I guess it wasn't really important for Harry's story but it was important to us.

~Dumbledore explaining everything he knew about Harry and the horcruxes and Voldemort's mistakes. Everything that basically explained why Voldemort went after him as a child.

~Harry talking to Dumbledore's portrait in the end about the Elder Wand and him putting it back where it belonged.

I felt the need to add this.

Scenes that they added that I love!

~The way Harry came out to confront Snape so no one else would have to make the choice. In the book he was found differently but this one was better. They needed that confrontation.

~Voldemort talking to the ones in the castle through their heads instead of like a sound system.

~Showing the Chamber of Secrets and what happened. Then of course Ron and Hermione kissing finally in there instead of in front of Harry.

~Harry confronting himself about knowing all along he knew what he was, what he had to do. Hermione admitting it too. Also their short goodbye.

~Voldemort and Snape talking in the boathouse instead of the Shrieking Shack.

~Voldemort and Harry's run around the school dueling.

~Ron and Hermione going after Nagini and Neville saving them from her by killing her.

~Voldemort deteriorating instead of just dying. It was pretty cool.


~" Don't pity the dead, Harry, pity the living. Above all pity those who live without love." -Albus Dumbledore

~"I'll join you when hell freezes over! Dumbledore's Army!" -Neville Longbottom

~"Albus Severus, you were named after two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew." -Harry Potter

~"Hide them all, then. Keep her - them - safe. Please." -Severus Snape

~" me..." -Severus Snape (So sad! He wanted to stare into Lily's eyes as he died!)

~"NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH! -Molly Weasley to Bellatrix Lestrange

The End!

I was surprised that the entire movie was made for 3D. :) I just expected a few battle scenes! And the Harry Potter 3D glasses - so cool!

You had Harry Potter 3D glasses?? I am so jealous! We just had the normal black ones.

Devon Ashley said...

Yep. :) They look just like Harry's glasses. So cool.

Darn! I wish I could have gotten one of those! My theater had assigned seats so I didn't have to go early so maybe they just ran out of the Harry Potter ones by the time I got there.
