Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – AMC 12 @ Downtown Disney, Anaheim, CA

No parts 1 and 2 or A and B here. I took part in AMC’s two part premiere and watched all 6 hours…well 4 hours and 36 minutes, but really, who’s got time to count when everything’s blowing up? Well I guess you could count during the camping scenes… 😉

It was actually a very nice treat to revisit the first movie because there were some really good parts in it that I forgot to mention in my first review: primarily when Harry, Hermione and Ron are running from the snatchers in the forest, there’s this absolutely gorgeous tracking shot that just looks so large and complex. And that whole chase is very visceral and really enjoyable.

Stunning. Gorgeous. And emotionally satisfying. I would definitely say that I am on the whole satisfied that this is where it all ends (see what I did there? Tying in the marketing campaign to my blog? Nice huh?).

McGonnagal always wanted to try that spell. Oh Maggie Smith, you’re adorable!

Not my daughter you b-word! Yay Mrs. Weasley! Take that Bellatrix!

Ralph Fiennes takes Voldemort to a whole ‘nother level and it’s amazing.

Yay more Polyjuice potion! It’s always funny to see actors play like they’re uncomfortable in their own skin.

I am very excited that Ciaran Hands plays Aberforth – I barely recognized him, but then his name pops up in the credits and I’m all agog and excited.
