    Favourite bit within the film was probably the bits with Snape :love: and the whole vault scene, favourite bit outside of the film was my mum leaning over during the final dramatic school-vs-bad people bit outside where they're carrying Harry, and whispering 'He's quite handsome isn't he, Voldemort!'.
    Umm... What the?! :lolwut:

    Absolutely loved it.

    :awesome: Lmao! Brilliant. Nothing like a bit of Voldy Love.

    I watched it at a private screening on Friday, July 18, 2011 at 00:00 AM (i.e. Thursday, July 17, 2011 at 12:00 AM), following Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1, in VIP seats. Not only did I get free dinner before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, I also got a free snack (hot-dog) between the movies, and large popcorn and large Coca-Cola for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, all free! I'm glad it was this movie that I got a private screening for, because it was excellent. Really epic, great angles, and deeply satisfying: some of the best cinematography I've seen recently. And, as I distanced myself from the books and watched the movie as someone who hadn't read the books (something I'm quite good at doing, though I have read the books), the way they showed that Snape had always been caring for Harry and why he was against Voldemort was exceptional. Overall, I thought it was as good a movie as it could possibly be.
    Thursday was the 14th, and it came out on the 15th... But cool story, which cinema?

    One thing about the films is they left out Peeves. His misbehaviour and naughty tricks in the books always make me lol.

    I was pal so looking forward to his "Voldy gone mouldy" chant but...

    It was a very good film though ^_^

    Deathly Hallows was ****

    a ****ing waste of time. Such a disappointment. Why the hell did harry fall of a cliff with Voldemort, and why the hell did their bodies and faces merge into one, and then split again like some asexual multiplication?

    Wtf?

    Why was Harry's kid an emo, and what happened to the giant fight between Grawp? There was hardly anything on Dumbledore's sister and he didn't shout expelliarmus at the end, just some random green and red goo shot out of their wands. What happened to the epic battles and werewolves? They hardly showed any duels and they only showed one werewolf as some guy with hair on his face.

    You could clearly see they used the same actors to act multiple roles.

    Just ripped us off our money. And I went to the 3D film as well and there were NO 3D effects. It felt like I was watching 2D (which would probably have been better).

    Haha it was so unexpected though! I said 'But he looks like a turtle!' and she was like 'Well, he's a handsome turtle!'

    I don't know how I felt about it...

    It was cinematic and enjoyable and well filmed and the score was FANTASTIC. There was enough nostalgia to please a die-hard fan and it was streamlined and accessible for the non-book readers.

    But it was somehow lacking for me. It just didn't have the "epic quality" that I wanted it to have. It was no Helm's Deep, but then again I don't think it was as epic as it should have been in the book, either.

    There was this strange contradiction for me; really every Death Eater should have been able to easily kill every student and it annoyed me that they were fighting toe-to-toe, but at the same time I felt the desire to see more intense, drawn-out duels that perhaps involved a bit more than simply flinging nondescript spells around and deflecting them. I mean, why was Bella unable to block THAT spell from Molly, but able to block the dozen before it?

    Despite complaining, I enjoyed myself!

    I don't know. I don't mind the way they look.
    The bright light ruins a little though. They look older in the actual film.

    The first thing I said when film was older was "Why does ageing 19 years make your nose get fatter?" because that was the most noticeable difference!

    Just saw it, and feel really depressed now, not because I didn't like it - I thought it was amazing - just that it's all over now. It's been like a constant in my life for the past decade or so, like my whole childhood.

    I lolled so much though when it showed the memory of Snape hugging Lilly's body. Don't know why, just couldn't stop!

    Now I feel the urge to re-read all the books. Feel empty now tbh! Nothing to look forward to, and never going to be able to look forward to the next book or film being released. DEPRESSED.

    EDIT: For all the people nitpicking, of course it wasn't going to be detail-perfect. I think they adapted it excellently for a visual conclusion!
    I know what you mean, I feel empty too :sadnod: But I feel worse for the people who don't love Harry Potter enough to want to re-read the books again and again :lol:

    Haha, well they look obviously older to me. And wizards and witches age slower than muggles, and live longer (Dumbledore was 116 when he died). Some are even close to 150.
    Anyway. I'm happy with they way they looked. They were only in their mid 30's, and they look noticeably older.

    I think some people are simply over-estimating how old mid-to-late thirty year olds actually look. I thought the actors were aged very subtly and, therefore, realistically. You don't need a truckload of prosthetics to make a 21 year old actor look 37.

    I also stick by what I've always said; Alan Rickman was too old to play Snape. But I forgive that because he was awesome in every other respect :P

    I agree. And Rickman is indeed too old. But he's brilliant and perfect for the part. All the Marauders and Lily are too as well old, but it doesn't matter.

    Indeed. Before the first film came out I was hoping for Tim Roth to be Snape, I think that would have been great too. But he turned it down for Planet of the Apes, I wonder if he regrets that ...

    What did you think of David Thewlis as Lupin? I always thought he seemed rather too creepy

    I'm a huge David Thewlis and Lupin fan. I love him as Remus Lupin! I think he's perfect.
    Glad Roth turned it down.

    OMG IT WAS AMAZING!!!! I'm going again Thursday. The Snape scenes just about killed me :'( I think the line they changed of his was a good change. It made it more emotional. Certain differences from the book were irritating. Like the fact the battle was outside and not in the great hall, but nm. LOL, some of the Voldermort scenes were hilarious! I thought he couldn't get any more camp after the whole "Severus, i've saved you a seat," from the 1st part, but then he went and hugged Draco xD Bella's death was...weird, but all in all it was WELL GOOD!

    The only thing I really missed was the whole conversation Harry and Voldemort were supposed to have before they duel, in front of the rest of the school - you know, the whole "Have some remorse Riddle" bit.
