My Thoughts

Posted pics on daily_lolita and Facebook.  Check it out, yo.

Okay, now that I'm awake, here's what I have to say about the movie:

I hate Ginny.  I've always hated Ginny, and I will continue to hate Ginny, and I really wish she'd just die in a fire already.  Harry, YOU'RE FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOUR MOM.  Stop it, it's gross.  I have nothing against the girl who plays her; she's doing the best she can with what she's been given.  In fact, she makes me like Ginny more, just like Daniel Radcliffe makes me like Harry more.  Speaking of Daniel, lol at his acting under the Felix potion effects.  Best acting I've seen him do EVER.  Hands down, I'm totally not joking.  For those 10 minutes, I loved Harry.  Which goes to show that Daniel really CAN act...he just has problems acting like Harry XD.

What was with LUNA saving Harry on the train?  I think I'd be more upset if I didn't love her so much.  Outside of Slytherin, Luna Lovegood is my favorite character.  Next in line is Ron, and wow, did Rubert do a great job.  He just keeps getting better and better, and I love it.  I didn't really care about Ron in the books, but Ron in the movies is likeable and endearing.

I really wish the ending fight scenes had been bigger.  I realize that the wizard community of GB is supposed to be fairly small, but this is getting a little ridiculous.  Like FIVE Death Eaters infiltrated Hogwarts, disposed of all the Aurors, and killed one of the most powerful wizards in history.  Not to mention the opening scenes when it was just Bellatrix and Fenrir (and some third random DE) triapsing all over GB causing a raucous and then blowing up Diagon Alley.  Seriously, is taking over THAT easy in the wizard world?  Makes no sense, I tell you.

Tom Felton...was so amazing.  I'm not even going to pretend to be anything less than the rabid fangirl I am at this moment.  I've always been a Draco Malfoy fan first, Tom Felton fan second, but Tom did a WONDERFUL job.  By the end of the movie, you really felt for Draco.  You could see how conflicted he was, and it made me so happy that the director took the route he did with the character.  Because nothing is just black and white, no matter how much J.K Rowling might want it to be so.  Draco Malfoy is not an intrinsically bad person.  By the second book, I knew he was my favorite character.  I identify with him, I empathise with him.  His relationship with his parents, the morals he's been raised to believe in, the way he's been taught to view the world, are all very much like my own.  And for people to just assume that those ideals automatically make you EVIL, is just ignorant.

I could go on and on about how I feel J.K. Rowling really did herself and her audience a disservice by portraying all Slytherins as "evil," the way she did (Val's heard part of my rant before XD) , but that's kind of pointless.

TL;DR: Best movie yet, the end.  Go Slytherin.
