Now as long as the last two sucky Twilight movies dont beat DH we’ll all be good. Nad I mean, how can they, really?
I liked the ending, it was different but think back, all except the first movie ends differently. PoA had the worst ending, I think thid one work, although Harry not fixing his wand did throw me some. But the Epilogue was simply amazing! :)

Woo ok someone else thought that too. I mean the ending wasn’t even as emotional as some of the previous movies. There were hardly any lines. And seriously didn’t it appear as if Neville killed Voldemort what with him fading away (he should’ve exploded haha) right after Nagini was killed. If they would’ve had like ten more minutes it would’ve been perfect…

Absolutely great film, I wouldn’t change anything. So emotional. The reaction from the audience was great, such a buzz. Really proud of the movie and can’t wait to see it again this weekend and add to the box office.

Oh, and one comment about the 3D. I’ve always been a movie purist, kind of, but the 3D is definitely worth a look, even if it is only once. Kind of cool, although not really needed.

I loved the movie a lot, one of my faves, the only small minors of dislike was James when was young in snape memories, the no mention of invisibility cloak of the deathly hallows being harry’s, the broken wand (that’s what less bothers me, because between the entry when Harry found his friends and they being already on the bridge, it could be a perfect off screen moment), now Harry’s invisibility cloak and James hair color and no glasses, there is no excuses there, but since is just extras somehow, so I’m not bothered really, they put the key moments to flow the story and sort of satisfied they compensated the bathilda bagshot to the camp scene (how Harry’s mother died and a bit of Harry’s father) on snape memories

but I’m happy it broken the record, it deserves it for a final installment of worldwide phenomenon that we HP fans are part of =)

I’m not suprized at how much it made ,even if it the ending is a little dissapointing ,(I mean we learn nothing about Teddy ,we don’t know anything about Dumbledore’s sister …the list goes on and on )
(did anybody else think it odd that :a, little James,Lilly and Hugo say Nothing in
the Nineteen years later thing ? and b,little Albus looks about 14 and has a farret not an owl?)

That’s really great!
Only thing is it puts 3D back up there, it’s been losing face but now it’ll be rising again with such a fantastic start to a 3D movie. It’s a pain. They should come out with perscription 3D glasses, if 3D sticks I’m going to want a pair, wearing those glasses over mine just SUCKS! they always slip down my face and it makes it difficult to really enjoy the movie. I will never again see DH part 2 in 3D. I will see it many many more times, in good old 2D.
