I saw the movie at midnight of course, fully dressed in my nerd gear as Bellatrix with my hostage Harry Potter. I have to say the scene that Harry walks into the forest couldn't have been done any better. I cried my eyes out like a crazy person because it was dead on and beautifully executed. I didn't like some of the changes made such as Ron and Hermione knew that Harry would have to kill himself and were pretty ok with that. I didn't like the fact that in the movie Voldemort grew weaker with each horcrux being destroyed. I felt that it discredited Harry's fight. I also wished they had included Harry's expelliarmus! spell because it shows his goodness. To me, that was one of the most powerful parts in the book because despite the prophecy, Harry does not destroy Voldemort. Voldemort destroys himself. I prefer the final battle between Harry and Voldemort to be in front of the crowd because I enjoyed the relief and cheers. A few small details I didn't care for were that Hagrid wasn't crying when he carried Harry's body out, which seemed untrue to his character and that Snape's tears were his memories...it makes sense, I just found it a little cheesy. Especially when the guy in front of me asked, "Why does he want his tears?"
That being said I really liked the scene when Harry presented himself to Snape and McGonagall stepped in to defend him. I realize for time purposes perhaps they didn't include Harry's struggle with his relationship with Dumbledore. All the more reason to read the books if you haven't already. I also find it interesting that the more J.K. Rowling discusses her life the more I see where her inspiration for characters and challenges come from.
My hair is obviously no longer blond, but it's not purple either. In some lighting though, it looks that way and guess what? I really like how I look with purple hair haha. Who knew?
