Look, I'm not gonna lie. I fucking loved Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One. Fucking loved it. In fact, it was the most intense Harry Potter film to date. Even though I knew what was coming, I still flinched, gasped, giggled, bawled (I actually started crying two minutes into the film. Somehow, Hermione obliviating her parents' memories reduced me to a burst pipe,) gripped my date's arm and smooshed my eyes into his shoulder because Bathilda Bagshot scared the shit out of me.
It was awesome.
Also, how weird was the whole Harry-Hermione-making-out thing that came out of the locket? It was like... so sexual, which was obviously the point, considering the locket was there to mess with Ron's mind. But still, it was pretty sexy. I mean they looked kinda naked and awkward.
Speaking of sexual, I really couldn't get over just how gorgeous Jason Isaacs looked in the film. I remember thinking Lucius Malfoy was an epic babe when I watched Chamber of Secrets, but because I was about 13 or 14 years old when I watched it, I felt wrong thinking that about him. Now that I'm a mature 21-year-old, I can ogle loudly. Oh that's a gross phrase. Point is, Lucius Malfoy never looked sexier with his long blonde hair, one hand clutching a goblet of fine wine, showing a bit of neck:
Ergh. You know what's wrong? Jason Isaacs is probably older than my parents. As is Alan Rickman. Speaking of Alan Rickman, I wish he was in the film a bit longer, but I guess he'll be in the second installment so that's something to look forwards to.
Oh no. This "review" has become a list of really hot men who are kinda old.
ALSO. HOW HOT WAS THE HEAD SNATCHER? I thought he was quite babe. I actually thought he was Daniel Johns and squealed to my partner that Daniel Johns was in the film. Oh shit this has really become less about the film and too much about the hot actors in it. I have to stop this. This always happens when I watch a film. I always let the hotness of the actors persuade me to like the film. That's what happened to Batman Begins (if it helps, the film is awesome, but only the first time you watch it).
Aside from being a perve fest for me, the film was great. I just loved it. I'm a huge fan of the books and I'm SO GLAD they decided to cut out Lupin's "I'm-not-ready-to-be-a-father/let-me-come-with-you-guys-on-your-journey" moment. When I read that in the book I just felt like it was very out of character. I understand that these are terrifying and uncertain times but Lupin would never cave so pathetically like he did. Harry was right to tell him to fuck off.
What I am disappointed about is the role Kreature plays in the film. Kreature and his relationship to Regulas Black really touched me and when they cut out that really emotional moment for the film, it disappointed me. But then again when I think about it, it's not at all something that can be done in film without it being cheesy.
OH! And Dobby. That was another tear-jerking moment. My partner thought it was funny that I cried so much during the film. Whatever, he's never read the book. He can't possibly imagine what any of us are going through.
All I can say now is bring on Part Two! I'm most excited for this. And when the film ends, I'm going to cry because it will officially mean Harry Potter is truly finished.
