    I thought it was pretty good too. Haven't watched a Harry Potter movie in forever; I know this one was way better than 6 imo.

    i saw this last saturday, it was so amazing! the best HP movie so far, at least for me. It was really faithful to the book which is something I appreciate.
    Also, it didn't feel rushed like a lot of the other movies.

    JK rowling said this is her favorite movie of all the series, well I have to agree with her!

    they should've gone with the split into parts idea for all of them, would've made the series a lot more enjoyable and less stuff would have been ripped from the plotline [​IMG]

    (i've only seen the 30 screener but i hope to go see it at the movies soon)

    do u have any idea how much money it takes to make a movie?

    for example if 1 HP movie cost $1 million then 6 movies cost $7 million
    if they were all split into parts than 1 move would cost $2 million and 6 movies would cost $14 million

    $14 million that could have made 2 movie series

    its better that they went for the split parts for the last movie for better understanding of the last movie

    Wait...What??
    Retarded math??
    "for example if 1 HP movie cost $1 million then 6 movies cost $7 million" it should be 6 million.
    "if they were all split into parts than 1 move would cost $2 million and 6 movies would cost $14 million" it should be 12 million

    Anyway, loved the movie.

    Well do you know how much every harry potter movie sells?

    the first one made a fucking $974 million. I dont think money is a problem. [​IMG]

    anyway.

    Best Harry potter movie yet. Very faithful to the book. And the modified parts of the movie made sense. like when Hedwig defended Harry.
    but the camping scenes, pretty boring. other than that, [​IMG]

    also IMO 6 was crap. the worst HP movie.

    But they are saying HP7 part 2 is going to be the best. and I think yes. with all the action packed in the last half of the book. [​IMG]

    I consider all the films to be different, due to different styles of directing. 1 and 2 were extremely faithful, with much less darkness and more wonderment and excitement. 3 started becoming dark and it has a completely different mood, but I also noticed that the actor that played Dumbledore much less convincing than the original. It was quite gripping but I remember not feeling used to it since it felt so different from the first two. Fans and critics consider it to be the best though, and praised the more stylish approach, and I appreciate it also. 4 had a comedic attitude and focused more on relationships but it was lost in the original plot. I felt that it had too much action but lacked the real plot. I consider it to have some of the best action scenes and effects though, so that's a plus. 5 was very good, and it also had a good plot, and I especially liked Umbridge, which is probably one of the most convincing characers so far. It lacked character development though. 6 was the funniest one to date, and was also faithful to the plot and had quite a lot of both darkness and light and mixed it really well. It is probably the most balanced one.

    7 was the best at character development. It explored the different emotions of the characters really well and was able to make both a dark and light movie. It is probably the most mature of the movies and also, J.K. Rowling says it's her personal favorite.

    It was a decent film I thought. The second part I assume will be better, as it has the actiony stuff.
    I didn't like the book, although it was definitely better than Order of the Phoenix.

    the movies are split making them different movies so they make twice the profit, not half

    It was very, extremely, painfully faithful to the book, in that they spent the whole film walking around and angsting and nothing really happened. But that's not a bad thing. The directing, on the other hand, was a bad thing. It was just plain bad.

    And the best part of the movie was the animated bit, the tale of the Deathly Hallows.

    Can't wait for the sequel.

    Well... not exactly... I found the 4th movie the best out of the lot, the 6th was extremely disappointing.
    Hopefully this one will reach my expectations.

    Just watched it today. First HP movie that I have watched in the theatres.
    Wasn't disappointed. Other than the camping scenes, everything else was very well done.
    Can't wait for the second part and I am glad they split it into two.

    It got a really good score from Rotten and it seems to be worthwhile.
    Glad to finally see a good HP movie, did it have to take so long?

    Actually, all the Harry Potter movies have at least a 78% or more approval rating from the critics.
