Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1

Some kids are really cute when they’re little and grow up to be really beautiful.  Some kids, like the unfortunate Jonathon Lipnicki from Jerry Maguire, or Haley Joel Osment, from Forrest Gump, and to a less cuter degree, Sixth Sense, are known for being awkward looking when they grow up.  When I look at the Harry Potter kids, ok, so they’re not awkward looking, but they were so much more preferable in their little itty bitty cuteness in the Sorcerer’s Stone.  Especially when the movie they are in is well, not so great.

So I will preface this by saying, I’m a big Harry Potter fan.  I read all the books, watched all the movies, and yes, I know that it’s not quite my generation to be such a big Harry Potter fan, but I’m a big dork.  So when they said they’re making two movies, I was like hey! more harry potter.  But dude, this was such a drag!  I think the only people who might like it are people who actually have followed the trials and tribulations of the trio for as long as I have and must see it to the end.

First of all, what’s up with all the weird angles.  Like it’ll be a beautiful long-distance shot, and then a weird close up on Harry’s nose.  Weird.  I mean, clearly the director is talented, some of the shots were beautiful, but there were all these weird interludes that just didn’t make sense.  And speaking of things that don’t make sense, what was up with the weird dance between Harry and Hermione?  It just made it seem like the director meant to do the parts into one film at first, found out it was 10 minutes too long, and fill it up with a bunch of other garbage to split it into two films.  There isn’t enough here to make it worthwhile on it’s own, but you kinda have to watch it to be able to finally watch the very last installment of the Harry Potter epic saga.

And the half nekked Ginny Weasley?  Really?  was that necessary?  I think not.

So I don’t regret my decision to watch this, just because it’s necessary to watch the last one, but on second thought, I should have probably waited until it came out on DVD….$2
