The end is almost here.
And it's never looked so good.
I was ten years old when I walked into the cinema to watch my very first Harry Potter film. I still remember the scene where they first showed Hogwarts. When I was first introduced to the magical world that is Harry Potter.
I walked into the cinema on Friday. I had my popcorn, my drink but I forgot one very important thing. A bucket, for my never ending tears. This movie had me on the brinks of tears from the very first scene. When Hermione removed her parents memory, when Harry saw his parents grave and when Dobby died. Seriously, I was either crying heavily or it was raining on my face.
I personally think this is one of the best adaption from the book (my ultimate favourite will always be Prisoner of Azkaban). I love how close the film stayed to the book! There were some things of about the pacing, but I’m really happy that the movie was split into two because we got a chance to see the friendship between the trios develop and crack under pressure.
The cinematography was absolutely breathtaking. So much of this movie was crisp and had a beautiful, grim tone which really reflects the book. In a way, the setting felt like another character. Well done Yates. The action scenes were all brilliant. Again, well done Yates. It really showed that the trio are no longer in Hogwarts and have grown up. Also, why is Hermione the most amazing female character of all time?
Also, the greatest tragedy is that Rupert Grint is not mine. I felt like he was amazing in this film. No, I did not scream out “RON BE MINE” in the fight scene in the tent. Nope. Not me. I swear I am an adult. But, he really portrayed Ron’s jealousy and insecurities well. And the piano scene between Ron and Hermione was the cutest thing of all time. Of all time guys!
The kiss scene between Harry and Hermione was awkward and shall never be spoken about again. KTHANBAI. This may be an unpopular opinion but I loved the dance scene between Harry and Hermione. I think it showed that these characters share an amazing friendship, but ultimately it’s Ron that can give Hermione true happiness.
I felt like everything was moved on to a whole new level. I was really taken back by Harry, Emma and Rupert (who I am deeply in love with) acting. I felt like they really showed how much the characters have matured and Rupert is amazing. Okay, I need to stop talking about Rupert.
Neville had 5 words in Part One, and let me tell you, they were the most bad ass words in the whole franchise. I LOVE YOU NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM, YOU GO NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM!
I wished they showed Luna’s room, because it shows how much the trio meant to Luna. I need more Lupin! The Weasley twins were amazing, and the kiss scene between Harry and Ginny was so cute, awkward and hilarious when her brother walks in drinking tea. I love you Weasley twins. And this may be the weirdest thing I’ve said (and I say really weird things), but I thought Scabior was really hot. JUST ME? OKAY. I blame this on Nick Moran.
This film felt like a huge tease for the epicness of epic that is Deathly Hallows Part 2. I will be in the film with my bucket!
ACCIO PART 2!
Damn, I thought that would work.
