Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The official trailer was released last week. I don't think I've ever fangirled so hard in my life. I think they've really out done themselves this time. I think, for the most part anyway, that all the movies (just like the books) grew better with each one. However, just as I think Deathly Hallows was the best book all around, it's looking the movie will be as well. I was literally speechless after the trailer. November 19th can't get here fast enough. I just finished re-reading Sorcerer's Stone earlier today, and I'm about to start Chamber of Secrets again.

If it's good as the last one, I can't wait.

I still get goosebumps every time I see that trailer. I know they're designed to make the movie look as amazing as possible, but the book is so different in terms of style and tone than the previous ones that I think they really took the movies to another level as well. There are quite a few parts in the book that I love (especially the final confrontation between Harry and Voldemort) that I'm really hoping they don't half-ass. I'm wondering as with the finale of many movie or TV series if one or both of the final films as well as the main cast will receive any nominations at the major award shows. Especially with the 10 contenders for Best Picture now at the Oscars, I'd be shocked if 1 or both movies wasn't nominated. They'll likely be better than at least half of the nominees last year. (The Blind Side, really?!)

That trailer gives me chills every time I see it. I cannot wait!

I think I'll be re-reading all the books this summer. I always like to re-read the book before the movie comes out, but it's been a long time since I've read all the older books.

If they stick close to the book it'll be the best long movie series that I've seen.

Of course they will, they made two movie$ out of the final book.

While I liked Yates' approach for OOTP, HBP was too much teen romance and not nearly enough horcrux explanation.

Exposition is always something that movie makers try to avoid as much as possible because they find it slows the movie down (especially for people who have never read the book). The books will always be the authoritative version but I suspect they made a good decision to make two movies so they can tie loose ends to wrap up the movie saga.

Yeah, I really don't get the complaints (not that you were, U2girl) I've seen about DH being split into 2 movies. I understand and completely agree with the idea that at least on the studio's part the goal is to stretch the franchise as far as possible and make more money. But the only other alternatives from the filmmakers' perspectives would be to try and cram everything into a 7 hour movie or cut huge plot points to try and fit it into one. I know certain things have been cut from every movie so far, but with the 7th there are very few insignificant parts. Without two movies including most of those scenes, they'd suffer greatly.

oh...woah!
the music! the visuals!

**THANKS***
i don't go to the movies often enough, so I didn't know that the trailer was out!


I haven't read the books yet.

I started with TPOA in the theater, and have seen all of them in the theater since then, and went back to see the first two on TV. I have the DVD's except for TSS and will get that too.

Once i make amends at my library i can finally start reading them all except the last one which i will wait for after the 2 films are over.
I look forward to them; to meeting more characters for the first time, and others in more depth, I'm sure they'll enrich the story further in certain ways....I learned from my sib to not make one to one correlation between books and movies a ways back!

ANd having been a LOTR fan for decades.......I loved those films!

Am I the only fan who thinks that DH was the worst Potter book by a mile? I was satisfied enough with it after the initial on the day read, but afterwards I noticed the staggering amount of plot holes, internal contradictions, characters acting idiotic just to further the plot and sloppy writing.

PoA and GoF always will be guilty pleasures of mine and while they're hardly literature, they're pretty tight in story telling.

Azkaban is my favorite of the bunch as far as the films go, and it's not even close.

As far as the books are concerned, Goblet of Fire is the one I most enjoyed.
