Saw the midnight showing and as you might not know, I'm kind of a fan of the series.

Up until this point, I've been very pleased with how the movies have progressed but this particular movie left me kind of cold. The special effects are typical and very cool but the story line more or less sucks.

Spoiler alert:

The movie starts out with all the kids abandoning their muggle families and erasing the kids from their memories. The reason is, Voldimort and the Death Eaters are out capturing, torturing and killing them off.

They have to move Harry because he's still a juvenile and therefore, can still be tracked by scent.

Mad-Eye dies shortly after the beginning.

Snape is seen for about all of 5 minutes throughout the whole movie.

Lucious Malfoy looks like he needs some Ensure.

Draco Malfoy looks like he's suffering from heroin withdrawal, both in physical stature and acting ability.

The kids end up searching for the remaining Hulcrux's that Voldimort created, they found the one but couldn't destroy it.

Ron is the same dork he's been all along, gets into a jealous rage, almost loses his left arm [along with Harmoiny] and of his twin brothers, one gets a hole in hes head during the initial attack scene.

Harmoiny isn't nearly as hot as the tabloids make her out to be and Nymphadora got even 'manlier' looking.

Dobey dies at the end.

At the very end, Voldimort acquires Dumbledor's wand, rumored to be the most powerful and ever created - and made by Death himself.

As one who has enjoyed the film series so far, but has not read the books, I must say after not reading your spoiler that I an very excited to go see this. I have read very briefly about this movie, as I am avoiding any plot stuff, and the consensus I got was that it feels like half of a movie (which kind of makes sense.) Your thoughts?

yes, it's part 1 of 2 but my whole problem is that now it's all about the kids and very little involvement with [of all people] Snape, Lucious and the other 'lead' Death Eaters.

Much like the Half Blood Prince focused on relationship drama and burning important places down that are used in the next installment rather than finding the horcruxes?

I guess I will wait until the wife wants to buy them & get the whole box set.

The first two were by far the worst in the series.

It actually follows the book quite faithfully. I was surprised, because the last movie did not. While all the plot points were there, the details were wrong. Very little was amiss with this one.

That being said, it was a good movie. It wasn't fantastic, and none of them have been. But they are good enough to be better than most of the crappy movies that come out these days.

And, Druid, your spelling is atrocious. Voldemort, Lucius, Horcrux, Hermione, Dobby. Get it straight.

Since I didn't read the books, the spelling is what you get. Deal with it.

:P

LOL

I finally saw it tonight and I think it may be my favorite in the series so far.

It was good, I saw the midnight showing. Only complaint is that the whole movie focused on them running away from Voldy.

well, the only way to kill him is to destroy all the hulcruxes he made...so was it 'running away' to find the others instead of an all out battle scene [which I too would have preferred]............

For some reason I thought the telling of the Deathly Hollows story segment was really well done. Potter still has the cloak right?

By the way Voldy doesn't have any Hulcruxes he has hOrcruxes.
