EPIC! Such a brooding intense buildup to the Grand Finale next summer. The trio is better than ever. Now my favorite of the series!

I was a bit disappointed. They left out soooo many important things. No mention of Ariana, Regulas an after thought, no mention of Dumbledors shady past, where was the invisibility cloak, where was Dean, tonks mother and father, ect…..

I did love love love Dobby. Him and his sneakers. squee. Mad they kinda of screwed up his burial. Dan Radcliff was also brilliant. He’s such a good comedy actor.

So in a way i’m half and half. I keep reminding myself that it’s only half of the book. I love many parts of it, but some of it dragged

I loved it. But what happened to Lily’s letter and the torn photo? Isn’t that going to be important later? Still, very, very exciting. I thought Rhys Ifans was extremely touching as X Lovegood.

I loved it! Its now my favorite!!!!!!!! :D
I felt like it was true to the book, loved the tributes to hedwig and dobby :)
The mudblood on Hermione’s arm was great :D
I didn’t feel like any parts dragged… they got well into more than half of the book, and to tell you the truth, i wouldn’t of cared if it dragged… We also kept hearing that it was a road movie.. didn’t feel like it that much.. still lots of magic :)
Oh and the scene where they kill the horcrux ( dont want to spoil just incase) was amazing! loved it!
I felt like they kept most, like 98%, of the most important scenes :D
Still sooo much I have to say about this movie :D Not disappointing at all!
I don’t know why some critics gave it a low review, then again what do they know.
Must see, movie, and I really wouldn’t mind it being longer :D

Add me to talk about the movie! :D

This is the first Hp movie I was not going “aw man!” the whole time to, they did a great job, really. very dark and very true to the book with the exception of the needless dance number between harry and hermoine, could have done without that. The silver doe scene went off beautifully and the death of dobby made me just as sad as the book did. I was upset that wormtail was offed so casually. for the first time, they made a change that I liked, the death of Hedwig was much more proper than the book, died fighting. godrics hollow was a bit truncated but still actually good. overall this gets high marks from a usually cynical geek, well done guys.

As a journalist, I’ve enjoyed and covered Potter for years. In our own reporting on the opening, our online magazine specializes in religion and diversity issues. Contrary to a lot of press reports, there’s more friendly religious interest here than many press reports have acknowledged. Also today, we did a quick nationwide sweep of front pages looking for news of fan coverage at the openings. I attended a jam-packed opening in metro Detroit. Here’s our story: http://www.readthespirit.com/explore/2010/11/19/harry-potter-central-christian-crowds-great-ideas.html

AMAZING! I was a bit worried at first because of the past couple of movies..but this movie went way beyond my expectations! It was pretty much perfect. The acting was absolutely amazing! How those ministry workers pulled off facial expressions so well that you knew exactly which one was Ron and which one was Harry….brilliant. One thing I would have liked to see though..was Dudley shaking Harry’s hand. It was a very pivotal moment for his character. Other than that, AMAZING!

Very Intense Movie. Can’t wait for Part 2. Dan, Rupert, and Emma out did them selfs. So much emotion and passion. Thought they left some important things out like the portrait, pictures, and letters. Can’t forget the Harry and Hermione kiss. That was crazy. Dobby and Hedwig died doing things heroic. Hopefully they show more abut Dumbledore’s past in the next movie. Awesome Movie. Can’t wait to see it again in IMAX.

This is my absolute all time favorite movie ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was filmed so well and sticked to the book very very well. Dobby was AMAZING! Though they did leave off a couple of minor scenes i thought it was sooo good! this one was just so much more humorous than the past 6 and i loved that about it and it balnced out with the epic scenes very well. all around PERFECT movie!

As always, they left out so much… Merlin’s beard I’m glad they decided to do two movies! Imagine if they had done it in just one :-/
I have to watch again but I think that it was really good when you set aside the books and the brilliant things left out.
And most of all the trio’s acting was really good! And I cannot wait to see the second part!
