I saw HBP yesterday afternoon. I’m seeing it again tomorrow. Yep, folks, I actually liked it. I really haven’t thought of a complaint yet, which is astounding quite frankly. Man, let me tell you, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson have really grown as actors. I am glad that the powers that be toned down the surrealism I read about in one article. There was just enough darkness in the reality scenes and just enough surrealism in the Pensieve scenes. By the way, Well Done on those Pensieve scenes.

The screenplay is really well written. They make some pretty major changes to certain scenes while remaining absolutely true to the storyline. The changes they made make complete sense considering the time constraints of a film and the size of the book. I think you’ll be pleased with the detail that went into the movie. All the snogging? It’s there. All the darkness? Trust me, you won’t be missing that either. They did a really great job of showing how hormones will out, even in the face of the return of He Who Must Not Be Named. Really well done, that, and with wonderful emotion from the actors.

I sense a gush coming on, so I’ll close before I say too much. Let me just say that if this is what they can do with one film, I can’t wait to see the detail that goes into the two-part Deathly Hallows.
