- what can it possibly mean? Why would they stop selling the films?
I have to say, I’m much less excited about this release than other films in the series (almost any other film in the series, actually). The final film was a major let-down. A shadow of the masterpiece that the novel is…I’m sure I’m much too late to be making these comments on the quality of the film, as so many people seem so “sold” on it, and although I thought it was good – and at times very good – it wasn’t truly “great”. It could have been so much better…
I wonder why we American gets it before the Brits? Oh well, I’m not complaining! @Nige29: I felt/feel exactly the same way! I feel a little guilty for not loving the film unconditionally and wholeheartedly (I think it’s a moral obligation among Potter fans), but also a little disappointed at how the film turned out, because I know that it’s final, they’re never doing another one, and I would really dislike it if they did do remakes! I think I just have to accept that while it didn’t completely live up to my standards, or at least came quite far from eclipsing the brilliance of the novel, that there were 7 other Harry Potter films that made the mark for me (okay, more like 5, Goblet of Fire and Half-Blood Prince lacked the material and the quality offered by the canon), and anyways, I would have felt a lot worse if the last book had been what I perceive as a “fail” (at least in terms of what I expect out of HP).
Sorry, I meant “get it,” not “gets it,” and Americans not American. I was typing way too fast, and I’m not a very good typist anyway.
