I only saw it once this weekend, (I was supposed to see it twice) but, I am going to see it again tomorrow. With a notepad to scribble down the inaccuracies I am irritated about. However it was a wonderful movie overall.

Am i the only one who thought the ending wasn’t that good? For my brother that hasn’t read the book, it looked as if Neville defeated Voldemort. Also, i thought that the movie ended without giving you enough lines or i don’t know enough emotional gratification for you to come out of the movie feeling satisfied. It just ended.

chanman is right..sorry,but the ending is not what the lot of hp fans wants to be,just like me.

Agreed. I confess myself, dissapointed. What happened to the Deathly Hallows? Wasn’t that the title of the movie or something? They spent all that time setting it up perfectly in Part 1 only to completely ignore it in Part 2! What happened to Harry Potter: Master of Death, Possessor of all three Hallows? The invisibility cloak was all but non-existant. If they hadn’t used it in Gringotts, I would have thought he didn’t even have it anymore. But LOLS on the just pretending they set up the mirror properly…
OH and Tonks and Lupin’s child? NEVER announced, but somehow Harry was still able to talk to Lupin about his son…. I don’t know where they learned about Harry Potter, but they seem to have missed a few crucial lessons…
