Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I (Based on a Book)
I actually had the good fortune to see Deathly Hallows on Wednesday night. This is the first time in my life I've ever had the opportunity to see a movie before it is released and what a great movie for such an opportunity.
Anyway, I loved Deathly Hallows. When I first heard it was being broken up into two movies, I wasn't sure how I felt about that. But having seen Part I, I"m glad they did. It enabled to keep so much more in line with the books which has always been a problem in the other movies. So many details tend to lost. But Deathly Hallows kept quite in line with the book, though some details that got taken out of the other movies were inserted, like Bill and Fleur, to make it make a little more sense. I think the movie did a great job of building the tension of the book The sense of waiting and waiting for something to happen was definitely there. And the bang! There it was. The group dynamic was really great between the trio and they did a nice job with the Hermione and Ron relationship. I can't say I'd really change anything about it. I can't wait for the next movie though!
