My Thoughts

Having seen the trailer for Part 2 in front of Green Lantern earlier in the day, we decided to pick up the Blu of Part 1 and rewatch in preparation for the final movie.

I saw this in the theater originally and liked it a LOT. I had just finished reading the entire series of books and Hallows: Part 1 was the first movie in the series I'd seen AFTER reading the books. Because it was so fresh in my mind, I thought the movie did a great job of capturing the frustration and hopelessness of the tasks confronting HP and friends. That period of time is very drawn out in the book and paints a pretty frustratingly bleak picture for the reader. The movie did a great job of capturing that.

By its very nature, Hallows: Part 1 is more contemplative and less action/adventure driven than any of the other movies. I'm ok with that.

This second viewing, months and months after I've read the books, that feeling was lessened a bit because the details weren't so clear in my head. Despite that, I still really enjoyed it and am looking forward to the final installment.

Maybe after that, I'll go back and read the books again for the hell of it.
