Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II
 
Right, as one of the resident Potterheads, I'll be the one to mark the end of Potter on LF!
So, it's out. I'm seeing it later today. Thoughts on it all?

I have the fullest intentions on seeing it tomorrow. It's bittersweet, really, just like every other fantastic story out there. I'm sad to see it end, but it's a great relief, too. And like every other incredible story, the climax is supposed to be the most, well, climatic and intense.

Slightly off topic: Surprisingly, I've never heard the term Potterhead to refer to Harry Potter fans. I've always heard Potterphile.

I need to get caught up first. I have seen the first part of the...um...last episode yet...

Grief Counseling for Muggles :ohdear:

Hey, we're Star Wars / Trek fans, we can empathize :D

As for seeing the movie, I'm not a die-hard fan, but I'll probably Netflix it the first day it's available.
I've read the books, I know how it ends.. I'll manage.. hehe.

Probably gonna see it in two weeks time. Never been that big a fan of the movies, but I enjoyed the last two and I'm sure it'll end with a blast.

So quick update. I went to see it. I cried. a Lot.

Somewhere past the middle point (I think that's when it was, anyway) I felt like the big-important-emotional-heavy-stuff went on too intensely for too long an unbroken stretch.
spoiler:
As for the plot, the only hole I spotted was Harry dying and then coming back to life with no explanation, and I didn't like how his death is hammed out for such drama even though we are assured moments after he bites it that he'll come back.
Still, I liked it quite a bit. But if you cried watching this movie - I don't care who you are - you're a pussy.

Being a fan of the books and having mild curiosity in the movies, I have to say that I only liked the first two movies. The rest has many inconsistencies and plot holes that need the aid of the books to be understood. And this includes this last one.

Ill watch it when I dont have to worry about sitting in the first row of the theater because I didn't wait 4 hours for a seat.

You do know you can book the tickets pre-day on the internet? (depending on the cinema, I use Cineworld)

I saw it yesterday. I cried out of sadness that my childhood is officially over. Other than a few nitpicky details, I think it's the best out the film series, and the David Yates Potter films for that matter.

Pretty much my view.

Took my cousins to see it Saturday, which was fitting since they were the reason I went to see the first Harry Potter and the reason I read the books. I have taken the three of them to every movie in the series. I'm not going to set here and type that it was the best ever just because it is the latest and greatest. In my opinion it was very good and produced a very good final to the saga of Harry Potter and Voldemort. It had enough emotion without getting overly sappy.

Most of the changes from the book I wholeheartedly support. I do wish Harry would have used the Elder Wand in the same matter he did in the book. However, the film makers kind of painted themselves in a corner that made the book ending of the Elder Wand unfeasible. Still just a small insignificant nitpick on my part. Overall it was a very good movie and a proper ending to the story.

I saw the movie last night with my parents, brother, and fiancee. We saw it in IMAX-3D, and I was pleasantly surprised with how little they flogged the technology - there were only really two scene where the 3D was particularly noticeable: the ride down to the Gringotts vault, and Harry's kamakazi jump off the castle. Nice to see that they didn't overdo it with the gimmicky technology.

Over here in the states we don't have assigned seats, which means that I could book my ticket a year in advance and if I showed up at a reasonable time for any other movie I would sit in the corner of the first row for a movie like Harry Potter on its opening days.
