Yesterday I went to see the last Harry Potter film. I couldnt wait anymore even if I knew that this would be the end. I entered the theatre and the moment the title was on the screen I was nearly in tears. When Harry entered Hogwards and the other students cheered for him I was nearly in tears once more. When Mc Gonagal defended Harry and took over the school, I cheered out loud and made a fool of myself. When the stone statues came alive and every professor and the order of phoenix was there casting protective spells, I couldnt keep silent I wanted to start clapping and cheering. But after that the battle was a bit dissapointed. I felt it was treated like it was a bit of background noise. I wanted, I expected it to be EPIC. I wanted to see things happenning like in the book. I wanted the centaurs and the other magic creatures to enter the battle and own everything. I wanted it to be like the Lord of the rings battle, with Harry being Frodo. But instead it was all Harry and nothing more. All the other characters were a bit silent actually. Even Hermione and Ron. And in the end wth?? No cheers? Nothing?? I mean the worst wizard of all time had finally been defeded and people were chatting about how they lost their wands in the battle or whatever. Noone even paid attention to Harry. And 19 years later, it was a bit awkward and everyone only stared and oh I saw what you did there with Ginnie on the right holding her kid between her and Harry so that the camera can have a clean shot of the three. Again it would be ok if everyone werent posing by standing so still.
The books were far more filling and epic that this movie.
David Yates I blame you.
