Take that last sentence with a grain of salt since I cried for an hour after Toy Story 3.



Funny that you mention Toy Story 3... Just watched for the first time last night, and I got a little teary-eyed, myself.

As far as the movie goes, I enjoyed it. Wasn't too many dry eyes in that room after the movie was over, but I held my own. To me, it was worth seeing just so I could see the kick ass teaser for The Dark Knight Rises..........I SO can't wait for that one!!!!


Me neither. How much d'ya wanna bet Batman gets the shit beaten out of him at least twice and Commissioner Gordon dies?

Toy Story 3's definitely the best American animated movie ever.

He just didn't know where to look just yet. In the movie, that conversation was completely ignored so it felt more like Harry and his friends were just wandering around aimlessly looking for them.

I think the movie's playing it like Harry can recognize the horcruxes because he is one. He knew the locket was a horcrux when he saw it and it'll probably be the same with the others. I'm guessing, I haven't seen the movie yet.

I'm not a huge Potter fan, but I have enjoyed most of the films. In my opinion, they could have removed a lot of the slow parts in Part 1 and had just one longer film for Deathly Hallows. I knew when I first watched Chamber of Secrets that it was going to be that Harry had a part of Voldemort in him; since that has been done in many things that I watch like animes. It was a very good film and I enjoyed the backstory involving Snape. My wife and I agree that, if the ending means future books/movies, we aren't very interested in them.

Ok, so i'm being dragged to see this this coming weekend. My nephew's a poter fan and its his birthday. Personally, i've never, and i mean never have seen nor understood the apeal of these films and have 0 desire of seeing this or any other movies. (not saying others can't/don't, just not my cup of tea). My question is am i going to get lost without seeing the rest of the movies? How long is this thing? Should i just take some sleeping pills a half hour before? :lol:

Again, I'm not a huge fan, but I have seen all of the films. It was about two hours and, in my opinion, there wasn't a lot in it that would be confusing to someone like yourself that hasn't seen any of the others. There was plenty of action and thrill to it and anything that needs to be really known from the previous films are explained in an easy and relevant manner.

Something tells me it's gonna end on down note, especially since Nolan claims it to be the last. And if he wants it to be, he'll probably end it all crazy so that someone will have to reboot it to do another movie. Of course Batman will have the shit beat out of him at some point......He's going against Bane! And to anyone who only knows Bane from Batman and Robin movie (ICK), totally throw that one away!!!

Whoever said it was spot on to the book, that's a farce. The ending battle did not play like that. It was much more emotional in the book.. Everyone did not know Harry was alive until he faced Voldemort. Also I like how not once did they acknowledge that Harry's Invisible Cloak was one of the Deathly Hallows, and that by the end of it, he was the 'master of all 3'. But whatever, it was okay, a bit too much cheese, but meh, it was way over-hyped to begin with.

I figured that. I got a friend at work who loves the books and has told me how the movies have compared to the books. He hasn't seen this one yet and was asking me certain questions, some of which I really couldn't answer since I have not read the books. But when I told of the very end, he said that's how the book ended and I think he was over all happy for that. Can't say I'm surprised. There really hasn't been too many exact crossovers from books, graphic novels, comics, etc. to movies. I think The Watchmen was the closest I have seen.......

I went to see it on Monday and I have to say they did very well, a few twists to the original story but nothing on the scale of the horrible Percy Jackson movie

PS I'm really glad they had the nineteen years later sequence

I went to see it last night and thought that it was amazing. Burn was right, it's miles better than DOTM no question. The best aspect of the two Deathly Hallows movies is that it felt more like a film based on a book, rather than a book translated to film. What scenes they added, edited or missed out were done so for creatively sound reasons to make a better film. I can't praise the movie enough!

Spoiler alert.

The only thing that I was slightly disappointed with them missing out was the death of Fred Weasley, somewhat disappointed that you didn't see his death at the hands of Rookwood. Also, Snape's death was more than a little brutal wasn't it for a 12a? Bloody brilliant though!

It's the sort of movie where you can't pick one specific part that you really enjoyed, for me at least. I had a number of them.

Magonical (sp) -vs- Snape.
Snape redeeming himself.
Neville standing up to Voldemort then whipping out the sword.
Neville taunting the Snatchers.
Neville running from the Snatchers but taking a heap of them out.
Neville killing Nagini.

There was a distinct danger of Neville Longbottom stealing every scene he was in..

I'm guessing that Rowling gave Neville such awesomeness in Deathly Hallows because of the fan theory that some people had early in the series that he would be the true chosen one and Harry Potter was used by Dumbledore and Snape simply to conceal the truth from Voldemort.

That was the overly-artistic one where everyone wore multicolored suits with glitter, right?

I remember there was an episode of one of the animated shows where Batman got beaten so hard, he broke half of the bones in his body and was (should have been, anyway) covered in blood. If the movie's anything like that, It would be intense!

Back on topic. Last night I re-watched Deathly Hallows Part 1, and I realized something. We never get to see Peter Pettigrew die. I think someone already mentioned that, but I'm not really sure.

I think Part 2 could have easily been rated R, purely for the fact that Snape's death scene was as brutal as hell. The only reason it's PG-13 is because the franchise/series is so popular.

I have ranted on enough. :D
