It’s Not Just The End Of An Era…

6 Jul

 “Welcome! Welcome to the new year at Hogwarts! Before we begin our banquet, I would like to say a few words. And here they are: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! Thank you!”

At exactly 12:01am on July 15th my purpose to life came to an end. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows part 2 came out in theatres. It was so bittersweet to see the end, after 14 years of this amazing adventure it’s hard to believe it’s over.

“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

I remember the day my older sister Lyndsey gave me the book to read and I was litterally spell bound (Oh yeah pun intened) from that day forward. I’m even still waiting for the owl to deliver my letter from Hogwarts. I’m going to miss the count downs, dressing up for midnight showings, waiting in line eagerly for the next book then staying up till the next day reading it, so my heart is kind of broken at the moment. JK Rowling has the ability to take you far away to an amazing place and I don’t know how many times I’ve read and reread every book but they sit on the top on my bookself worn, dogeared but well loved for any day I need a little magic.

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.”

Alright so if you havnt seen the movie yet don’t read past this point it’s my general review and thoughts. First of all thank god for 3d glasses, they hid my tears because honestly I cried. Alot. Which was weird because I didnt expect to cry as much as I did. Tom Felton (Draco Malyfoy) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) gave incredible performances even though neither are my favourite character, both really stood out. The special effects BLEW my mind all over the floor and I give the movie a 11.5 million out of ten. Because I could write a book about this I’m just going to do top twos….or three. Or ten. My favourite part was Snape. Honestly it was so heartbreakingly sad, when he was holding Lilys body and how in love he was with her, they did that part perfect. Awesome thing number two, the awkward hug between Voldemort and Malfoy. It was just so great. And just so awkward. Last but not least the entering and escaping of Gringotts was very well planned out except (I’m sorry! I nitpick…) when they touched anything in the vault and then multiplied it didnt burn them, giving it a less urgent feel to get out of there. What I was not impressed with at all was the death of Fred. It was the worst part in the book but so huge and unexpected and they basically just were like here is his body, he’s dead, no big deal. O_____0  Whaaaat?! Then another thing that frusterated me was the fight at Hogwarts. It was more so Harry running around doing nothing when there was so much going on everywhere else. In the book I loved seeing the teachers preparing and fighting but they hardly even did anything thing with that. Other then that the movie was fanfreakingtastic, even the 19 years later wasn’t as corny as I figured it would be  so kudos.

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that
mean that it is not real?”

I would just like to say thank you to JK Rowling for writing the legendary, fantastic, and imaginative books, you gave me a magical childhood and growing up with Harry Potter was the best way to do so, so thank you.

  “All was well.”
