What once started with a few broomsticks, magic wands, and three small, yet truly iconic children, has grown into something undoubtably larger-than-life.

July 15, the release of the final and highly-anticipated installment of the Harry Potter series.

I attended the midnight showing with friends, and arrived to our theatre a solid 5 hours prior to our showtime of 12:01 am. Wouldn’t you know it, there were already line-ups of people up and down the hallways of the theatre, young people decked out in Hogwart’s robes, still others dressed as distinct characters (Dumbledore, Umbridge, Snape and Bellatrix), and the always hated ‘seat savers’ guarding prime movie-watching seats for friends.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was perfect. It had everything: action, adventure, humour, tension, sadness, and joy. Fans got to see the long-awaited Hermione-Ron kiss, the horror of losing one half of the Weasley-twin-duo, the untold secrets of Snape, the bravery of Harry, the final fall of Voldemort, and the triumph of good over evil. Plus the glimpse of Harry and the gang 19-years in the future was so much fun!

A perfect ending to a perfect series.

its coming!

Check out the trailer. And then buy your advance tickets to the midnight show.
I already did.


Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! Just a fantastic movie. Excellent translation from book to movie, incorporating just the right amount of information. The ending was a little abrupt but I liked that they chose to end this film with Dobby’s death, and leading into Voldemort finding the wand from the Deathly Hallows. And yes, I was in tears when Dobby was dying in Harry’s arms. And yes, I will be devasted in the next film — you know what I am talking about. It’s going to be a sob-fest.

PS – If you plan on hitting up the midnight show for the last intallment, I’d suggest arriving at 7 or 8pm. We arrived at 9pm for this flick, and barely got seats in the good section of the theatre (you know how the front section sucks… well we were real close to having to sit there). And come on guys, this is THE LAST HP MOVIE! Bring snacks, playing cards, and HP trivia to keep you busy. You are gonna want a good seat for this epic film.

PPS – Please check out this video if you haven’t already seen it.
