HP - cover - Harry

Deathly Hallows!

Watched HP7 Pt:1 and...itwas kind of a downer? Not just the overall tone and monotony of the film but I never realised how much I depended on the ensemble cast for the love - DanRad, Emma and Rupert have never really clicked with me as actors so I found myself very much removed from their scenes.

THE SHINY: Adored Luna so damn much, along with the Malfoys (never took my eyes off Draco), Bellatrix and the Snatchers (and Bill was shiny indeed). Loved the polyjuice!moments especially.

I wished they had actually condensed the 2 parts into one movie and glossed over all the endless camping. I understand they're trying to milk the movie franchise for all its worth now that its winding down but still D:

Dobby's final scene did have me teary eyed, though prior to that I kept going o_O at the cgi - it's improved loads since the early movies at least ^^

I don't know, the bleached out colors, the Harry/Hermione shippyness that had me face!palming (has any director NOT shipped them in the various movies?), the lack of actual chemistry between the Trio has me yearning for the other films of the Christmas season.

It feels so weird to come out of the experience disappointed, when the flist seems so darn happy with it.

My FL also seems enthusiastic so far but I expect my reaction will be closer to yours (I haven't seen it yet).

I've never been a big fan of the movies as compared to the books.
Yours is the first post where you don't go hearts all over it like so many others I've seen. I haven't seen it yet but I'll be watching it by end of next week.

I have a feeling that I'll be sharing the same reaction as you. Liking it but still critical over some parts and characters.
I just wanted to comment and say I am so glad I'm not the only one that feels that way about this film. Could have been done so much better I think.
And you wonder why I decided to do a Twilight on it and wait until the last part gets released before I just marathon them :P
Duuude, all of those H/Hr moments had me and my group laughing. SERIOUSLY! Could Cloves have been a more OBVIOUS shipper? So embarrassed for him.

a;kjdfaskhjfd The Dobby scene. ;djkfhalksjfhd Just. OMG Goss. I died. I remember being gutted in the book, but seeing it on the screen? Fucking broke me. Just. kdfhlkashfdl So good. Oddly enough, the exact opposite happened with Hedwig. I remember crying in the book when Hedwig died (Fucking JKR!) and not feeling anything at all when it happened in the movie. Odd. Anywho, I pretty much agree with you on the main cast. Didn't feel much. But OI. Dobby.
(I still have to watch it, but...)Frankly, I don't expect much from it since the 7th installment of the book itself was a monumental disappointment!
I didn't see Harry/Hermione as shippy at all. They are best friends brother/sister characters. Obv Ron saw them as a ship, in the books too, that's why he left and came back and was his fear that he saw.

Draco... :) yay
