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?)
