Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (there are spoilers in this !! do not read if you haven't seen the film !!!!)

And here is the second part of my Potter reviewing.... upon seeing the first installment of the last movie, I can safetly say....IT WAS BRILLIANTLY EPICALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the beginning of the film you can tell its going to be VERY different from the other Harry Potter films. With the beginning building tension as both Harry and Hermionie leave their homes, and upsettingly, Hermionie has to wipe her parents memory so she never exsisted to them (*sniffle*). It prepares the audience for a tale of sadness and danger. The film is gripping for those who have and haven't read the book (However those who have read it its brilliant when it comes to the detail of the action, it misses out very little!) . It is potentially the most scary of the lot. When the critics have said its the darkest tale of them all....they arent kidding (at one point I screamed....I actually screamed.....whole cinema laughed at me was mortifying!!!). The bond of friendship is pulled to the extreme limits with Harry, Ron and Hermionie, as they are plunged into perill and danger, with unlikely deaths of those close to them and us the audience (*cries*).

I think the most clever part of the whole film, is the presentation of the fairytale story of the Deathly Hallows, when Hermionie reads it out, so everyone knows what the Deathly Hallows are. The story of the Deathly Hallows is shown through a Tim Burton style cartoon, being very visually cleverly developed and an excellent way of displaying the story of the Peverell Brothers. It goes through the story clearly and although its a fairytale, its presents as a very dark more grown up style of fairytale.

I highly reccommend, nay command!!!, everyone to go see it !!!!!!!!!!!! It is truly a great piece a film and it will take you on a very exciting journey !!!!!!

Potters Back !!!

Well, well, well... at long last Potter fans of the world can scream and dust off the wands and pointy hats, because the lastest movie has arrived. Critics are calling it the darkest movie of the lot and audiences have been promised to be given a thrill. Now, being a rather big Potter nerd, I have re-read the seventh book a fair few times during the holidays so I can see how they interpret the book. If they get it right, its going to be a majorly awesomely epic.

The last book The Deathly Hallows is being split into two films, showing that theres going to be the ever immortal yet HIGHLY annoying cliff hanger at the end of the first installment. The wizarding world has become a dark and dangerous place to live in, with Harry, Ron and Hermionie going on a mission to destroy the immortal Lord Voldemort, whilst saving as many people as they can in the mean time. It is truly the ultimate last battle!!! The most unlikely of people come forward as being strong and bold characters, but I'll let you watch the movie or read the book to find out who they are!

Now, I shall be viewing the film this evening, so I think that everyone of you reading this blog should, nay, I command !!! to go out and buy a ticket and watch the movie ! And yes, you might say, you have't seen it, how do you know what it will be like? my view is this, the books are magnificently crafted and the films gives it booming life, the past movies (in my own opinion with an exception of the Order of the Pheonix)  have been truly wondeful and I have high hopes for this lastest film, therefore feel that I can safely assured in saying its fanstastic !!!

I shall give another review once seeing the film!! and I have no doubt it shall be good news! so look out for more Potter-ry goodness!
