"together they make one master of death"  
I don't think I have ever cried so much during a movie, ever!

zomg. I have generally been a tiny bit disappointed with the other Harry Potter movies in the past; but the Deathly Hallows (part 1) was AMAZING. Noel & I saw it last night in Gold Class, and I just loved it. I cried & cried & cried. It had been a little while since I read the books so I didn't remember all the little details, which was a good thing because in the past it has felt really obvious when something was left out; but this one flowed brilliantly. oh, I really, really enjoyed it, definitely my most favourite one out of all the movies so far.

General thoughts:

- The opening scene where Hermoine is wiping her parent's memories, and erasing herself from all the photos made me sob like crazy, holy shit.
- Clemence Posy back as Fleur = love! I adored her wedding dress <3
- Fred and George are fabulous, I am going to be an absolute wreck in the next film :[
- Bonnie Wright as Ginny really hasn't gotten anymore interesting; then again, she only had about 1 line (that was enough though).
- I got so excited seeing the streets of London, squee :D
- There so has to be a Ministry of Magic elevator ride at the Harry Potter theme park...
- I was a bit worried that some of the scenes where they are on the run might be a bit slow in the movie (because I'll admit to finding parts of the previous movies a bit boring now & then...), but they really weren't so yay :] &oh, the Forest of Dean was so pretty, so snowy & lovely!
- I really liked Hermoine's grey coat >< WANT!
- The visit to Harry's parents grave at Godric Hollow made me cry too, especially when Hermoine cast the spell for the wreath of flowers to appear...
- Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix was as crazy&insane&perfect as ever.
- I loved the beautiful drawings & animations to illustrate the story of the Three Brothers - so, so beautiful! One of my favourite scenes out of the whole series of movies, I think.
- Even though Malfoy was only in the film for about 5 minutes, I still love him. I hope he gets more screen time in the next film.
- Dobby, holy fxcking shit. I absolutely adored him in the books, but I didn't like the portrayal of him in the Chamber of Secrets movie (he annoyed me...) but dkfjkdldhjdl, I started sobbing the moment he came to rescue everyone from the Malfoy's place, and totally did not stop until the credits started rolling. I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO DIE OKAY? he was so cute. hahaha, I loved the part where he was sitting on the chandelier unscrewing it in a so not-very-subtle way ;D

IS IT JULY 2011 YET?!?!?!

I LOVED IT as well.

For all the reasons you mention! The Three Brothers bit was awesome and when Dobby died it was so moving. Can't wait for Part Two :D

I really enjoyed it. Overall, my love of the series has dwindled. I didn't even see HP6 in the theatres. But this film certainly captured my attention and it's TERRIBLY UNFAIR that we have to wait 8 months now. *poutystomp*

The girls behind me cried the whole way through I think. Though at Dobby's death I was surprised to find my eyes completely misted over.

It was an amazing movie. I love it the best of all of them and I can't believe they're making us wait so long for part two.

I bawled like a baby when Dobby died in the book, and I started sniffling as soon as he appeared on screen because I knew it was coming.

I also loved the animation for The Three Brothers. Would watch a whole movie of that.

I wish it had been clear (as it was in the book) that Hermione had just wiped herself from her parents' memories. I don't want to think of them walking around with no memories at all.

It was fantastic! I am glad it's only 8 months to wait and not another year and a half, like last time. But it is so clearly a "to be continued" cliffhanger ending that 8 months is a very long time. I'm awaiting and dreading it at the same time... it means the hype will be over, really, truly over. It will be like when I finished the last book all over again. No more new Harry adventures to look forward to...

Dobby was excellent in this movie. He had such humble but purposeful heroism and he was strong until the very last. And I was so impressed by the animation sequence, too.

Plus the audience at the showing I went to was really great. Everyone cheered and laughed at just the right moments.
