View Full Version : Deathly Hallows Part 2

I'm seeing this tonight and I'm really excited. Sure, I know how it ends, but that doesn't change the fact that it looks awesome.
One thing I don't get, though, are the people who are saying that Harry Potter ends today. The series ended years ago. I understand people who haven't read the books that feel like this, but I know people who read the series as each book came out and are still saying that Harry Potter ends today.

My girlfriend and I are going to wait until the lines cool down and Cowboys vs. Aliens comes out, then see both in one go! I wasn't much a fan of the final book, but I thought the last movie was the best of the bunch and the Battle of Hogwarts (which I'm guessing is ~90% of the movie) should be cool. Not looking forward to the epilogue though. I'll be trying my hardest not to laugh at the main cast in "old people" makeup, and then even harder when Albus Severus makes his entrance. I understand the sentiment behind the name completely, but I just can't hear it said out loud in all seriousness and not want to light it on fire to put it out of its misery...

Didn't like the kiddy ending too. I though (logically) that they would both die

I'm perfectly fine with the happy ending. It's still a children's series, regardless of how dark it gets at the end. Albus Severus is a ridiculous name, though, and the epilogue overall is corny.
The movie was really good. My favorite thing about it is that it actually showed scenes that were only briefly mentioned in the final book. The epilogue also seemed better somehow in the movie. Don't know why. And seeing older versions of the main characters actually worked. I thought that part would be dumb, but the way they did it worked really well. And seeing Ron with a beer belly was quite entertaining. :p
The end was kinda anticlimactic, though. They had Harry and Voldemort have a real duel, which I don't remember happening in the book, but then it just kinda fizzled out.

Should I add spoiler tags here? Eh, well if you haven't seen the movie yet *BEWARE OF THE SPOILS!!*
One thing I thought I remember from the book involved the goblet horcrux. In the book, didn't Griphook give them a fake? I remember talk of how "Goblins should not be trusted" and how they had to do more to get the real one. This is from what I recall, but it's been years since I've read it.
Also, before seeing the movie I heard info on how they changed the movie, and made Snape into Harry's actual father. The idea of this was beyond silly! So, I remember they showed the doe patronus in his memory, and made somewhat of a big deal about it when Harry was in limbo (I guess we can call it). It's weird, but it still doesn't quite equal out to him being his dad.
*shrug* Maybe they wanted to have the audience think as a what-if? I just think it means that Snape cared for Lilly THAT much, but that's it.
Either way, I LOVED this movie! One of the most epic movies I've seen, and it sure didn't feel long at ALL (which is a good thing, especially since Part 1 took forever with all the emo, angst, and camping).

I saw that... Snake would be Harry's father? I was like ..erf...NOT! That would only explain the hair color XD
My boyfriend didn'T read the books, so I had to explain why everyone was sigh-ing in the room
As for the duel the part where HArry just jump with Voldemort off the cliff I was like...okay they decided to kill him at the end :D (Am I the only one thinking that Harry should have died? I ask a few people and they were thinking the same thing. Maybe I have to re-read the books to understand why he's still alive.

I enjoyed the movie personally I thought it was a good ending and it somewhat followed the book. SPOILER I just wish they would've showed the fit between Lily and Snape from the Prince's Tale Chapter in the book. I mean they showed some parts of their time together but the fight just seemed important I thought. I mean he called her a mudblood and she got made over it that and that he hung around with 'evil' people and dreamed of being a deatheater.

I agree that Harry should have died in the end. The "and they lived happily ever after and made a bunch of babies" ending was a let down imo.

I remember when I read the book and Harry was walking towards Voldemort with the intention of dying, I thought, "Holy BACONBACONBACONBACON, JKR actually had the balls to kill him off." And then he didn't die. :p
