    I loved it. It certainly wasn't flawless, but I thought it was a very fitting final movie.

    The Prince's Tale? Killed me. I was literally SOBBING and couldn't stop shaking and crying my eyes out for the rest of the film. Good lord, Alan Rickman. Utter brilliance.

    The "Leaving Hogwarts" music has been stuck in my head since I saw the movie two days ago. As if it's not already depressing enough :\

    Snape and Fred's death was so sad! :sad: The stuff looking back into Snape's past was perfect. I always loved that part in the book. :love:
    The first time Voldermort spoke to everyone at Hogwarts gave me goosebumps!
    I'm so glad the 19 years later part wasn't as cringe worthy as I thought it would be!


    Can't believe its all over. :cry:

    I found most of the end part not as good as it could have been.

    The scene in the Great Hall where Pansy points out Harry, and all the houses one by one turn to defend him was so good in the book. And in the film - Ginny and a few DA members.

    Harry not just falling out of Hagrid's arms and running off into the castle - but casting a Shield charm between Voldemort and Molly Weasley after she's killed Bellatrix. And the consequent circling - everyone knows Snape was on the good side the whole time, everyone sees Voldemort die, lots and lots of celebration. I was really disappointed there was no cheering or anything after Voldemort turned to dust.

    The King's Cross scene was disappointing in the extreme. Ok so it's suddenly not about Hallows AT ALL (never mind that it's called HP and the Deathly Hallows), but you can't even let Dumbledore explain why Harry isn't actually going to die?

    *Sigh* I liked the film overall, but felt that after the book the ending was a bit of an anti-climax.

    This, totally this. I really, really wanted the last film to be identical to the book, because some of the scenes were just so good. For example, all of the ones you have mentioned were amongst the best-the final confrontation between Harry and Voldemort was the one that, more than any, I didn't want to be edited, but they just went and raped it. And that ridiculous jumping-over-the-edge-holding-each-others-face bit-why? :mad:

    No, I don't mean when he uses Expelliarmus, as I believe I read somewhere that the killing spell will be stopped if another spell hits it. I'm referring to when Voldemort is bombarding him with nonverbal killing curses and Harry is blocking it with shield charms, which according to the books is impossible.
    Exactly. Goblet of Fire, Mad-Eye Moody says, "There's no stopping it. There's no counter-curse". I would've thought that made it plain that you couldn't block it. Yes, I care about those small details because, rather than enjoying a good film, all I could think for so much of the film was 'that's not what happens in the book'.

    Seeing it in a packed cinema was a bad idea - the audience were so noisy and it's hard to get really in to a film with that level of noise. The woman sitting right next to me annoyed the whole cinema by shrieking with laughter any time something scary, funny or sad happened which was followed by about 10 people telling her to shut up. Immediately after it had finished, I was prepared for everyone to turn on her but luckily she left pretty quickly!

    I liked the film but I think I need to see it again to appreciate how good it is.

    Don't know if it's been brought up, but the whole Dumbledore backstory being pretty much ignored made my blood boil. Especially as they went to all the trouble in Deathly Hallows pt 1 of mentioning his dad killing three muggle boys, and the book, and Aberforth and Ariana... then nothing. No explanation whatsoever.

    The only parts I'm gutted about is that we didn't get any proper death scenes from the order of the pheonix! Where was Fred's, Lupin's and Tonk's deaths?! D:
    Apparantley they shot Fred being cornered by laodsa Death Eaters who just shot him with loads of spells - but cut it due to timing restraints. Just seeing Fred's body had me tearing up anyway. I loved Fred.

    GEORGE STILL HAD BOTH EARS!

    Sorry that bugged me so much! And Harry/Voldemort did three priori incantatum thingys! and no circling, and harry didnt give voldie chance for remorse! And then he spoke to lupin saying he was sorry for his son, when it wasnt ever mentioned that tonks was even pregnant!
    I could go on...
    However i liked that i could sit there and recite bits from the book into direct quotes

    Yes! This p'ed me off sooo much! Especially when Harry was like "i dont care what happened between you and your brother" i was like what?! You had a real issue with this in the book because you didnt know Albus properly and eeughhh!
