Excerpt: This is it. This is what every Harry Potter fan in the world has been waiting for. Back in 1997 if you’d have told anyone that a single mother on welfare would go onto write a series of books that would produce a series of movies that would become the highest-grossing film franchise in the history of cinema, well it’s a bit far-fetched to say the least. However it did happen.
Excerpt: "In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort. It all ends here.
Excerpt: Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is still looking to find and destroy horcruxes containing the soul of his arch-nemesis Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) along with his friends Ron and Hermione (Rupert Grint, Emma Watson), but the battle returns to Hogwarts as Voldemort's Death Eaters stage an invasion against the students and staff of the wizarding school.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Blu-ray Review
16 November 2011
Excerpt: The Film The eighth and final film in the J.K. Rowling series of the boy who lived is out on Blu-ray, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 couldn't have received a better platform to show off its special effects. The second part of the final book can be broken into two parts. The first part, before arriving at Hogwarts, is a rushed third of the movie.
Conclusion: Aaron loves this film, and he has every right to. I have a hard time seeing it as nothing but a series of disjointed, slightly related sequences that have little to no narrative power, featuring a number of cop outs, deus ex machinas (a staple of the series, and a sign of awful writing), silly revelations, and an anticlimax if ever there were one. 'Harry Potter' fans, how you rate this film, that's your business, and I'm not going to dump on your beloved franchise.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 3D Blu-ray Review
13 November 2011
Conclusion: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is best viewed as one long epic event, but Part 2 stands on its own quite well, bringing confident closure to a beloved saga. It isn't a perfect adaptation, nor is it a perfect film. But it's a commanding, compelling finale that will top many a fan's Best of Harry Potter list.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 Review
11 November 2011
Excerpt: Deathly Hallows: Part 2 opens where we left off, Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) snatching a dreaded wand from a dead wizard. Warner’s logo appears, and then silence. Death Eaters hover over Hogwarts, eerily waiting for a moment to strike. It’s time. Ten years of waiting, ten years of battling, and ten years of searching are about to climax. Part 2 is as much a celebration of the Potter franchise as it is a rare look at Hollywood success.
