I have finally seen the final part of Harry Potter. I find it too painful to sit in the cinema these days so even my fave films like Harry Potter I have to wait for the DVD.
I watched it on Tuesday night and I loved it. It did feel a shame it had to be broken into two though. I realise of course there couldn't be a movie for four hours, but it felt...somehow....not right. I really can't put my finger on it. I just felt a little let down
Warning some spoilers may be in this post.
It was very simplified though. When I read book 7 I had to keep going back and reading some pages twice because so much was going on. Sometimes I wasn't sure what was what at the end of a page or a chapter so I re-read it.
As of course everything can't be in the movies I thought it was done well and quite simply. Some important things were skimmed over though. Some important things like the death of a Weasley. I found that such a shock in the book and was very upset and yet it was so lightly touched upon in the film. You could of missed it if you blinked.
I was however, very happy to see they put in the 19 years later bit, it made it feel like a happy ending, just like in the book.
All that aside though I did love it and am sad it's all over.
JK Rowling bought property here in Tassie quite some years ago and apparently has bought more recently. I wonder why? Does anyone know? Maybe she is going to lock herself away and right another epic. But how could you ever top Harry Potter???
