I usually actually hate the Harry Potter movies (as seen in a past post) but this one I really enjoyed. I heard from friends who had seen it that it was a lot better and that people who had not liked it before actually did this time. And I fall completely into that stereotype. I laughed at the jokes for once, I was in suspense, and I truly cannot wait for the second half. I like that it had a darker side, similar to how the books took a turn and stopped being just about a magical world and starting incorporating more sadness and death into Harry’s life. It made it more realistic in the books to get enveloped in Harry’s life in this way, and the movie did a great job portraying it. I think they should have been splitting the movies up like this from the start and it’s just a shame that they only started to do it now. So my review: Great movie, can’t wait for the second half!
