Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1


I just got back from the theater.  


This movie was amazing.  

I am not embarrassed to say that I am a huge Harry Potter buff.  I know almost everything about it, and I have read each book more than once.  This last book?  I've read it four times.  Four.

So yeah, I kinda like Harry Potter.

I don't want to give anything away for you guys, so I'll just give you my opinion.  It was a very well put together movie, and I laughed, teared up, and shook in my boots.  It was a little bit depressing and, of course, dark because of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.  But I left that theater thrilled with the movie, because it was so in line with the book.

The creators didn't even bother giving a recap of what was going on, so if you haven't seen the other movies, don't see this one.  You will have no clue what's going on, trust me.  I kept having to lean over and tell my dad what was going on, and I think that's why he wasn't incredibly thrilled with the movie.  I, on the other hand, loved that I didn't have to sit through some awkward, forced rehashing of the entire plot.  It was refreshing, to say the least.

All in all, I loved it.  Clearly.  I'm giving it a 4 1/2 out of 5 waffle stacks!  (And just so you know, I wore red and gold eyeshadow to support the house of Gryffindor.  Now do you believe that I'm a total fan-girl?)
