Just watched Deathly Hallows P.1
Great stuff through out.
Other have commented on it so I’ll just pick two moments that made it special for me.
1. The dance: I felt a little awkward with that tacked on scene between Harry and Hermione, but the two of them pulled it off. You know Harry just wants to cheer up Hermione who is depressed about Ron leaving them (and leaving her). But when it is over, she looks at him and simply turns around as if to say, “You’re not Ron.”
BAAM GO THE SHIPPERS!
2. The Tale of the Two Brothers: Holy Heck! My jaw just dropped to the floor. The animation, top notch, it had one part old fairy tale (the really creepy versions before the Brother’s Grimm/Disney clean them up), two part puppetry and three part eye candy. Simple and sublime.
As an added note: I liked the “zip-me up” moment. Yes, not like it happens on the book, but funny enough with the ear less twin thrown in for good measure. The folks at Potter Cast say it was awkward, but considering that the relationship got such a short drift in Mov 6, that the characters simply had their relationship interrupted before they could get comfortable with each other.
Plus it ended right where I knew it would end, or at least a moment after. I knew that Shell Cottage was the perfect midway point after Dobby (sorry, I have something in my eye), but they added the last bit with Voldy just to remind us that this is far from over.
Just my two cents!
