It seems strange that I don't have a Harry Potter icon, but such is life.

I went to the movies today and saw THE END OF AN ERA! ...well, actually, I saw the eighth Harry Potter movie, and Alan Rickman made me cry.

Now, before we get into this review. I would just like to say that I'm a firm believer that film is an entirely different medium than books. This belief is supported by a wrath of evidence - for instance, a book consists of words on a page, while a film consists of many images played in succession to give the illusion of movement (most times with sound overlaid). Because of this fundamental difference, things can never be EXACTLY the same in a movie as they are in a book. I don't expect them to be.
So, what follows is a synopsis of what I liked and what I didn't like about the film, without getting into nitpicky "why isn't it exactly like the book?" shenanigans. That being said, the difference between regular films and films that are adapted from books, is that we already know the story with the latter.
The Good, The Bad, and The Malfoys... )
I look forward to buying the box set when I'm rich.
If there's anything you want me to talk about that I haven't, please let me know!
