Harry Potter - The End of an Era

I found myself completely enjoying the final Harry Potter movie yesterday afternoon.

I thought that they did a very good job keeping close to the books, though they left out some really good parts and the fight between Molly Weasley and Bellatrix LeStrange was a little underwhelming.

I found that I was crying off an on about half way through the movie. Part of it was the story line, having read the books, I knew what was coming, the other half was the realization that the series is now finished.

Alan Rickman (Professor Snape) was brilliant and of course so were all the other actors as well.

I saw the movie in 3D and all I can say about that is WOW! I think that my hubby is going to actually go and see this movie. After I came home and told him about it and he saw how excited I was over the brilliance and effects of seeing it in 3D, he said that he might have to go and see it. I hope so, because I would love to go and see it again.

I can only hope that JK Rowling will write a prequel series, perhaps about Voldemort's first rise to power............. I can only hope, but it just won't be the same.

As it is now, if you are a Harry Potter fan, this movie is a must see in 3D.


  1. I have never read any of the books, and never seen any of the movies.

    I was waiting - patiently waiting for years for my son to be old enough so we could explore the books together. He is 10, now.

    Last year, we started the first book. He HATED it. I insisted we plow on. We got halfway through the second book, and he begged to stop.

    I was really disappointed. So, we watched the first movie. He thought it was "okay." :rolls eyes:

    I haven't forced him to read or see the rest. Looks like I'll be reading them. Eventually...

  2. They're worth the read, very well done. They get more intricate and complicated as the story line goes on.

  3. Maura I'm not so much into them either. And I turned out ok....mostly.
