About Wormtail, I’m sure he gets a proper death in part 2, similar to the original death from the book. Thea reason why he didn’t die in Malfoy Manor, is probably so that he didn’t steal the thunder from Dobby’s death… or maybe they simply left Wormtail as an open question whether he died or not… It wouldn’t be the first time they just left things to your imagination. The producers must be well aware of the fact that the mirror shard is not explained, which totally ruined the film for me. If there was just one sentence about where he got it from! He could have found it in Sirius’ room, that would have been an easy way to explain it??

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 was amazing! There is no doubt it was the film of the year and I can’t wait for part 2 to come out. I know I’m going to cry when the final spell is cast, I don’t want harry potter to end!! ahh well, guess that’s what DVD’s and harry potter websites are for, to carry on the excitement.

I wish they had never hired David Yates. He is taking the Harry Potter franchise down the wrong direction!!

Just watched DH1 again last night in anticipation of DH2. I noticed the debate that Bonnie and Daniel were awkward. I would tend to agree, but I attribute it to Daniel more than Bonnie. She seems comfortable enough with the scene, but Daniel, both in this movie and OOTP looks very awkward. Come to think of it, the Harry/Cho kissing scene looked awkward, too.

I fully agree. I also love the saga too, since I have many memories and eager to go in London!

You are so right Sirius17. Not everyone has the same opinion about everything and so any opinions voiced about Harry Potter or anything else will tread on SOME toes. I thought the scene was far too awkward- after all, Harry and Ginny went out for a few weeks in HBP in so they would have got really comfortable in that time. I agree with Melissa and co. that it was the fault of both the actors and the directors. As for the other stuff… I can tell that lots of it wouldn’t make sense to people who hadn’t read the books. Obviously the directors wouldn’t be able to explain everything or the film would be 5 hours long, but they could’ve done a better job editing and condensing info.
Still, it was a great great film, especially the locket scene :) :)

The complete lack of chemistry between Harry and Ginny in the last three films is an odd thing and by far the most dissappointing aspect of the franchise.

I think the awkwardness between Harry/Ginny and Harr/Cho quite reflects how awkward some teenagers actually are in real life. As Dan also has stated in a couple of interviews, Harry is really bad with girls. So, of course, the scenes had to portrait the awkwardness that is Harry. I think they did a marvellous job. And David Yates did a good job on all the films he directed, in my opinion. (Well, we should have been explained about the mirror shard and some smaller stuff, but I didn’t think of it, as I had just read the book.)
