Well, allow me to dust off the ol’ blog here with an epic post about the end of a really big deal.
We managed to find a screening of Harry Potter here in Seoul that was neither in 3 or 4 D, thank every thing holy, because I had a burning urge to not vomit while watching a movie that I’ve waited quite a while to see.
I was… not disappointed. In fact, I was rather pleasantly surprised. The last two movies, in my opinion, which most people reading here will agree is neither humble nor quiet, have been the truest to the books. The few changes that I noticed really were things that I rather enjoyed. There were things that I found actual improvements. But then again, I found myself to be sort of overly-critical of the last novel as a whole. I always felt like the last book was a bit rushed, could have fleshed some things out more, left some things a little lacking, etc, etc, but that is me, a fan, just wanting more.
I felt like the director did a fantastic job making up for that.
There were things that I had wanted to see more of. I always want more Ginny. Ginny, in my again, not-so-humble-opinion, is terribly underused. For as BAMF-tastic as she was supposed to be in the series, she is mostly relegated to a love interest. That never ceases to irritate me.
Something that made me cheer out loud, and The Guy as well, was Minerva McGonagall’s incredible moment of dueling Professor Snape without so much as breaking a sweat. I love to see badass older women kicking ass. She was amazing.
So, let’s open it up to a bit of discussion. I’m a bit slow on the uptake these days, but I’ll try to get around to responding to everyone! What did you think?
