Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
I bought my tickets a week before the premiere. I practically poked my mom until she bought them--it's my poking that did its wonders, really--so I got my golden tickets earlier than everybody else.
No one dressed up in the theatre I went, which was a bit sad.
It was phenomenal. The cinematography, the acting, the set--it was all perfect. The movie was amazing and although it may come out a bit biased considering I'm a big HP fan, but it really was my favorite HP film adaptation so far. I loved how they mostly stuck with the book. There were certain minor changes and additions, I guess it was inevitable, but I'm not one to complain. David Yates did a fantastic job and he certainly did the last book (well, the first part anyway) justice.

This was an addition. Though it wasn't in the books, I really liked it. Ron left and Hermione was sad, Harry was there for her, like he always was. As JK said, Ron left and Hermione and Harry shared something intimate, I think it was shown in the scene. I'm not a fan of Harry/Hermione but this made me appreciate their friendship so much. Plus Nick Cave!
I honestly thought I was the only one who thinks Scabior looks attractive. It was all I could think of while watching, how I would love to go with him if he were to snatch me. He's a filthy snatcher alright, but he's a very, very attractive one.
Thank goodness most of my followers from tumblr feel the same.
Same goes to you, young Gellert Grindelwald. (I feel you, Johanna)
I may be suffering from this.
Among other things:
- Xenophilius Lovegood looked like a drunk!Lucius Malfoy to me.
- It bothered me that Krum was supposed to be in Fleur's wedding, but he wasn't.
- Hermione and Ron should've danced as well. :(
- Harry was supposed to be disguised as a Weasley cousin.
- When Remus looked at Harry and he was playing with the Snitch, I KNOW that he was thinking of James. *sobs in one corner*
- They should've included Dudley saying goodbye to Harry, I think it was an important moment for both of them.
- Chuck Norris' boggart is definitely Neville Longbottom.
- Dolores Umbridge--ohmygod--I just want her to go away.
- It bothered me that Peter Pettigrew didn't die. He was supposed to strangle himself in the Malfoy Manor (and I was highly anticipating for that moment since I hate that rat boy with burning passion) but it never happened. He just toppled over. Bit disappointing, really.
- The Tale of Three Brothers Scene was beautiful.
- Helena Bonham Carter. I adore her.
The split was good and it was already halfway through the book, I'm thinking the second one is bound to be action-packed with the battle in Hogwarts and all. It's going to be EPIC. Hopefully, they'll do Prince's Tale chapter justice, since in Order of the Phoenix I wanted to tear the director to shreds for ruining Snape's Memory moment. David Yates, please don't disappoint us. :(
When the movie was finished I didn't want to leave my seat, my mom had to (literally) drag me away. I'm guessing she had a hard time to do so, since I was too mesmerized in the moment.
This made me tear up. It made me realize that once Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes out, anticipating over Harry Potter has come to an end. I don't want to think that Harry Potter will ever end, as I'm sure I'd make my kids read and watch it as well. I want them have a magical childhood the way that I did. Harry Potter has been with me all these time and I know that it will still be with me for many years to come.
