in which we visit the Deathly Hallows

MIL offered to watch the kiddies last night so we escaped to the movies. And of course, since we squabbled over the HP books like seagulls over a chip, we saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
We'd seen several reviews -- notably Margaret and David, who both gave it low scores but admitted they didn't really 'get' it because they haven't read the books.
Say what?
I'm still stumbling over that thought.

But anyway -- in our view -- brilliant.

We felt it definitely captured the mood of the book, dark and despairing. Oddly, we both hate Bellatrix LeStrange more than Voldemort (Helena Bonham-Carter is so so good!) and the only disappointment is that we have to wait a while to see the second half of the book.

Overall, we gave it 5 rubber duckies out of 5.


  1. How wonderful for you to have a night out alone xxx Glad you enjoyed the movie and what a great score 5 rubber duckies out of 5 rubber duckies lol
    Have a Wonderful Christmas my friend. xxxxxxx

  2. glad you enjoyed the movie Toni.. SO DID WE.. saw it on friday night at Gold Class!!! I agree with you 100% on the FIVE RUBBER DUCKIES SCORE!!!!!!

  3. I've never read any of the books, so there you go!!!

  4. So how did you download my brain? With you on everything - the score, Bellatrix, having to wait for next one etc etc. Much as I love M&D though, what they were on to make that comment? My mate hasn't read the books, but has seen (and loved) ALL the movies!! Go figure!!

    Happy travels!!

  5. YES! Nomad we're kindred souls on this one.

    As for the M&D/not reading the books issue, I too know people who haven't read the books, and that's fine.
    The part I don't get is that M&D have been reviewing the films since the first one, and every time they say the same things -- and give low scores -- which I just think is odd.

    Can't WAIT for DH part 2 though! (except for the bit where someone I loved in all the books will die :( )

  6. I'll be waiting for the dvds.
    Me and movie theatres are not a good match.


Hey, thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I love to hear what you have to say even if you disagree with me. I have only one request -- please keep it polite.
