Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1
17 October 2013
Excerpt: Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) is dead, Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) is on the rise and only 17-year-old Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) knows how to defeat him, if he can survive long enough to do anything about it.
Excerpt: (Disclaimer: This review is written by someone who never got around to reading the seventh J.K. Rowling book on which this film is based. If you're unable to accept critical analysis of a film unless it comes from a "diehard fan" basing their thoughts on already loving the source material than please come back when one of our other writers has had a chance to see and review the movie.
Excerpt: Nearly fifteen years ago, a single mother on welfare authored “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” (though in the UK it was called “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”). The book went onto become an international best seller and, as they say, the rest is history. And this is it. This is what all the fans have been waiting for…sort of. You see the “Harry Potter” franchise is finite in regards to the written material. There were seven books. There will be no more.
Conclusion: It was big news when Warner Bros scrapped the theatrical 3D release of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,' giving 3D haters plenty of ammunition, and making fans wonder why a studio that has made billions off of this franchise couldn't get it right or invest the proper money to do the film justice. This viewing option is finally available, on Blu-ray 3D, found exclusively at Best Buy, and it's actually not all that bad. It's also not all that great, either.

Conclusion: Well, what more can I really say? You already know they will double dip on this title down the road, but for the time being you can own one of the best Potter films, in my opinion, on the Blu-ray format complete with stunning visuals, reference quality audio and a High-Definition supplemental package that will keep you busy for hours. I would encourage review readers, who have never seen the movie yet, to give this Blu-ray a chance to win you over. You never know.

Excerpt: Much like the prior film in this series, Dathly Hallows Part 1 isn’t complete. Character arcs are on their way to completion if not there yet, the overall narrative is still a step away, and we’re still waiting for things to take a turn southward for Potter, Weasley, and Granger. Why is Deathly Hollows still satisfying then?

Excerpt: Having two kids who are part of the Harry Potter generation, I've had the pleasure of reading each of the books and watching every movie with them. I love how Warner finally decided to split the final book into two parts (something they should have done starting with
