Like I said in the 'rate it' thread, I think it's a bit unfair to judge Part 1 & 2 separately. Yes, I understand that, that's what happens when you split a book and screen the parts separately. But I strongly feel that the two movies should be taken as one, enjoyed as one.

My thoughts are still a bit scattered all over the place, but I had one major beef with the film, in particular, which will probably go over the heads of people who did not read the books: how Slytherin House was dealt with. They were shut up in the dungeons by Prof. McG and left there until who knows when.

First thing I want to react on is the actual vanquishment of Voldemort. It appeared that when they were able to destroy all of the Horcruxes, he just, what's the term, disintegrated. I mean, Harry didn't really use AK, just Expelliarmus. So, they meant to show that Voldemort was too vulnerable to even "contain" himself? Or were there little or none of his soul left in his actual body? And why did his body have to disperse like that if it is only his soul that he cut into pieces? I imagined him to just remain as a corpse without his soul.

Sorry, I haven't re-read the books yet, but, it also appeared that he turned Nagini into a Horcrux at the moment. I thought that the snake was a Horcrux way, way before.

And Molly Weasley's defeat of Bellatrix. What makes it different to use AK and use that spell? I mean, AK is an Unforgivable Curse, but it is a painless way to kill someone. You just die. Using other spells, like the method that Molly did, would cause more pain to the victim and there is no corpse to bury. Aren't those spells more "unforgivable"?

My two Knuts: I think they did it that way more for cinematic effect than anything else.

For me, maganda yung pacing pelikula kahit halos 2 hours lang. Pinakagusto kong scene 'yung nilabanan ni McGonagall si Snape. Nanghihinayang lang ako kasi wala 'yung scene na lalaban din 'yung mga centaurs, house elves, thestrals, buckbeak at iba pang wizards at witches.

Pero dun sa mga battle scenes, 2 thumbs up! Smile

Overall, I loved it. I already accepted long ago that the films will never be as good as the books. And though I still have issues with scenes that shouldn't and should be there, in the end, the film still represented the DH pt. 2 quite well.

And who could give this film a low rating, siriusly? After the superb performance of the cast (especially Alan Rickman!!) I'm sure we won't soon forget this <33

I second this.

I got goosebumps on some of the scenes which I had been excited to see on the big screen like the big battle. I just wish for more! To make the end for only 2 hrs and 10 mins is just not enough.

OMGodric! Hahaha! Nagreact din ako dun. Very Happy
Kind of a cheap shot to get cheers from the audience.
I'm almost 100% sure that most people cheered because of that.
But those who've read the books will be taken aback.

It's much better than the first installment. The first was kinda boring compared to part 2.

Despite of all the little changes they made, maganda parin.

I was okay how McGonagal dealt with the Slytherin House before the battle. I was disappointed that they didn't show the announcement that underage wizards were not to be part of the battle.

I was just wondering wasn't Crabb supposed to be the one with Malfoy and Goyle in the Room of Requirement? Or was I remembering the book wrong? Who was that black kid with them in the movie.

Thumbs down lang for not showing the Malfoys in the great hall after the battle... they were supposed to be there, babying Draco.

Overall, great film. I cried, I cheered (quietly in my head), I loved the movie. Too bad this is the last one...

I'd love it if they'd continue the series where Harry and Ron join the Aurors to hunt after the remaining death eaters.

Exactly what I thought. It's kind of unfair, because Slytherins chose not to fight, they weren't told (and worse, "grounded" by McG, while the head of their house was in the battle).

I was just wondering wasn't Crabb supposed to be the one with Malfoy and Goyle in the Room of Requirement? Or was I remembering the book wrong? Who was that black kid with them in the movie.
That was Blaise Zabini. But yeah in the book, they were with Crabbe but I'm okay with it because Zabini's much easier on they eye that Crabbe Wink


Guys, can you think of anything that happened in the book that you wish they included in the movie?

If only they could have added more depth around Albus's history, DH2 would've been a perfect sequel to DH1.

Good movie naman overall, I enjoyed the pacing, yun mga parts na I'm supposed to laugh, cry and be jubilant.

it would be better if they added at least 15mins more for battle scenes, i guess. you know, just to intensify the thought that it is a war. (i long for that McG, Kingsley, Slughorn vs Voldy scene) Rolling Eyes

also, some key conversations seemed missing.

But WB gave its most effort for the CGs anyway so an A- would suffice. /arguable Basketball /

I now know why Crabbe wasn't the one in the Room of Requirement in the movie...

Josh Herdman (Gregory Goyle) announced that Crabbe will not appear in the Deathly Hallows film adaptation, and it will be his character (Goyle) who dies instead. This is because on 7 April 2009 Crabbe's actor (Jamie Waylett) and another man were arrested for cannabis possession and later tried and sentenced.

Did anyone else notice that the part in one of the trailers, with Voldy holding Harry's jaw and saying "Why do you live?" and Harry responding; "Because I have something to live for." WASN'T actually in the movie...

I would've loved to see the duel between Bellatrix vs Hermoine, Ginny and Luna. This was when Bellatrix was supposed to shoot a killing curse at Ginny, prompting Molly to duel with Bellatrix.

The way Bellatrix shot a killing curse at Ginny in the movie was handled differently (parang, "wala lang... patayin ko nga 'tong batang 'to.") and the duel between Molly and Bellatrix could have been given more screen-time. I always pictured a longer duel between the two when reading the books.

Although, cinematography-wise, the final duel between Harry and Voldemort was nice to look at, it wasn't consistent with the book. I'd have appreciated it more if they stuck to how the duel was described in the book. For me it would've been more dramatic having to see the reactions of all that were watching.

Know what, I would've loved it even more if they actually pronounced the spells. Avada Kedavra/Expelliarmus; the very last time we hear it from them. Also, in my opinion there was not enough dialogue and talk between Voldy and Harry during the final duel. It irked me for a bit but i got over it, but yeah i would’ve liked to hear something.

hmmm... I was thinking that each spell was made with a different purpose. Like lumos for light and aguamenti for producing water. With the Unforgivable curses, I think it was unforgivable because their sole purpose is to bring harm or death to another person. For the tightening spell and the blasting spell, you could use the spell to tighten and blow up other things, not just a person or a living thing. It was just that Molly used these spells as an offensive arsenal against Bellatrix.

neville's "heroic moments" were appreciated too... the character is so deserving of such "tribute""...

i wondered why they didn't show that harry at one point was able to complete the deathly hallows... to me that was significant... it is after all the title of the last installment...

On the whole, I really liked this last installment of the films. It was emotionally resonant (for the first time since Goblet of Fire in my opinion), and shot beautifully. The actors also really showed their chops here.

The scene at Gringotts was great. Helena Bonham-Carter made a hilarious and utterly convincing Hermione-trying-to-be-Bellatrix. And it sounds a bit brutal, but I like how Voldemort, rather than using the Killing Curse as he does in the book, apparently chooses to slaughter the Gringotts goblins instead. It adds that element of cruelty and ruthlessness to his character, and as a bonus, showed us Griphook's fate and that of Gryffindor's sword.

The depiction of Snape's death was also incredible. I love the decision to have the memory leak out through Snape's tears, bringing home to the viewer that the memories he was giving up to Harry were borne from his heart, his emotions. Of course, the Prince's Tale did not play out as it did in the book, but the deviation I liked was seeing him return to the Potter house after Voldemort's attack and mourn over Lily. It was the most striking Snape scene for me--seeing the unabashed openness of his pain.

The Forest Again was my favorite part of the book, and remained so in the film. It was an incredibly moving moment--for Harry to finally meet his parents and watching as they gave him the strength to face his fate. For Harry to see Sirius again, and for Harry to get his closure with Remus.

Sirius ♥ Oh goodness, how sad was the Remus and Tonks scene, though -- with their hands almost touching like that. He's my 2nd favorite HP character so seeing him dead was really painful Sad

WAH! I cried big time while watching the movie. I started crying when McG was casting spells on Snape and I was like "No, He is on your side. He is a brave man."
Then the R/Hr kiss (yes, I love them) was freaking awesome. Not as hardcore as H/Hr but yeah. much much sweeter. more loving. :">

Then there goes Snape's story. I just can't help it. Even if I know the whole story already and the lines, I just cried and cried and cried. I used all my tissue roll. Sad

Did you laugh at Voldy's laugh? HEHE in a very calm and windy and whatelse but funny way. LaughingLaughingLaughing

The movie was so nice but I hated the final shot. like Hello, there is still a hint of H/Hr moment. grrrrrr.

I love the decision to have the memory leak out through Snape's tears, bringing home to the viewer that the memories he was giving up to Harry were borne from his heart, his emotions. Of course, the Prince's Tale did not play out as it did in the book, but the deviation I liked was seeing him return to the Potter house after Voldemort's attack and mourn over Lily. It was the most striking Snape scene for me--seeing the unabashed openness of his pain.

That was sort of what happened in the book.
It didn't specify if the memories leaked out through his tears but in the books they came from his ears, mouth and yes, eyes.

Over-all, I like it.

Though there are lots of issues if you compare the movie with its book, the pacing of the movie is definitely great. Just like what was said (I'm not so sure if I read it form Film Wizardry book), they are keeping the story on Harry's perspective so that it will fit in a 2-3hr movie length. Since Harry was not one of those Slytherins who were being locked up might be the reason why the scene with the Slytherin was deleted/ignored.

During HPDH1 my hero would be Dobby. But with the 2nd installment, Neville is my hero. He plays a great part in this movie. I really loved his role. He is a real Gryffindor!

And with regards to Snape, at least he was able to justify himself with those who hates him. I can't wait to find my own Snape.Smile

And here are something I want to share when I was in the movie house.
*My first tear drop for HPDH2 happened at the very beginning of the movie. Don't know why. Maybe because it will be the last.
*Didn't expect to have lots of funny scenes. My favorite was the scene with Neville teasing the Death Eaters and when Voldy laughs (his laugh is not a laugh of an evil person. wahahaha...)
*After the movie, everyone claps. That was awesome. I haven't experienced watching a film where everyone clapped their hands as if they are watching it live.

Grab your Butterbeer and let's cheer for Severus Snape and Neville Longbottom!!!

-I have accepted the fact that some of the scenes will never be that faithful as they were written in the book. However, after watching the film, somehow that didn't bother me much since the movie actually live up to my expectations. (Although yes, It would really have been the BEST, as in BEST, if they stick to the original story) From the way each actor/actress portrayed his/her role to the music used, effects, props and sequence, EVERYTHING IS SUPERB.

-As I constantly say, no movie has ever made me cry this MUCH in the cinema except for Harry Potter 7.2. Just Harry Potter. To think that some of the deaths there like Lupin's, Tonk's and Fred's deaths weren't given emphasis that much yet most of us (if not all) we're moved and we all cried a bucket of tears, Harry Potter really proves that is indeed, incomparable to any other movies we've seen.

All in all, i'd rate it 10/1o or even beyond! Razz There is no single word to describe the movie. Spectacular.. Phenomenal... YOU NAME IT.. the list goes on! Smile

I like the decision to emphasize the eyes..and how the memories didn't really "gush" out, but dripped out slowly through his tears... It made the moment so heartwrenching.

Sayang, di pinakita yung part nila Kreacher! Yung lumaban din sila and the entire house elves community. Nakakatuwa sana yun kasi nakita dun yung unity ng mga magical creatures despite the "race" issue.

I was really moved sa Locomotor charm ni Prof. Mcgonagal! Dun ako nagsimulang umiyak! It was like everyone's trying to protect Hogwarts!

Another thing, I liked how the movie gave justice to each character! Parang bawat role, binigyan ng emphasis! Well, isa naman ata yun sa goal kung bakit ginawang 2 installments ang HP DH. Di lang gaano nabigyan ng emphasis yung death nila Fred, Tonks and Lupin!

I almost scream sa part ni Molly vs Bellatrix and I even uttered, "Not my daughter, you bitch!" with her!!!


Overall, it was a GREAT FILM! cheers

Ditto. when I saw this scene, I began to cry and cry and cry. and I don't know what happened to my eyes right after. Neutral

I have to remove my 3D glasses because they're becoming "moist" and all.

I also liked the part where Snape found Lily dead and he hugged her.

yvaine wrote:My thoughts are still a bit scattered all over the place, but I had one major beef with the film, in particular, which will probably go over the heads of people who did not read the books: how Slytherin House was dealt with. They were shut up in the dungeons by Prof. McG and left there until who knows when.

I agree. I was like, "what??? they're students!" It goes against the thoughts of the book, when Harry told Aberforth that Albus would never allow taking the Slytherins hostage. Sana ginawa na lang talaga nila 'yung pinaalis lahat ng Slytherins at 'yung mga underage students.

I know it's more cinematic to have hundreds of students running around in chaos in preparation for the battle but it doesn't make a lot of sense for the younger students to be there. My friend, who didn't read the books, asked me at this point if the other students are also looking for the diadem. Shocked


siriuslystrange wrote:Overall, I loved it. I already accepted long ago that the films will never be as good as the books. And though I still have issues with scenes that shouldn't and should be there, in the end, the film still represented the DH pt. 2 quite well.

I agree. I love the film in general. Great visuals. There was magic all around. Feel na feel mo na this is a wizards battle.

I have always believed that adaptations, while they should be loyal to the storyline, should also be able to stand on their own, separate from the book. Hindi naman kasi lahat ng fans, binasa 'yung libro. Marami ring Harry Potter fans na sa movie lang talaga sumubaybay sa story. And I think the series of HP movies should be judged based on how they were able to tell the main story of Harry Potter on their own. Kumbaga, palitan man nila ang ibang details mula sa book, or magtanggal man sila ng ilang subplots, kapag pinanood ko lang 'yung series of movies, makukuha ko pa rin 'yung main message and story ni Harry, walang loopholes at walang loose ends.

I think, for the most part, nagawa naman nila ito. Although may question pa rin talaga ako kung paano nalaman ni Snape kung nasaan sina Harry para mabigay niya 'yung Sword of Gryffindor sa kanila. Kasi hindi nila ito in-address sa movie. Paano niya sila nahanap??? E nagtatago nga sila e.


xirtalleb wrote:WAH! I cried big time while watching the movie. I started crying when McG was casting spells on Snape and I was like "No, He is on your side. He is a brave man."

Ako rin, unang naluha sa McGonagall-Snape one-on-one. I love Snape's reaction nung hinarap siya ni McGonagall at tinutukan ng wand. He was like, "No, I don't want to fight you." And did anyone else notice na bina-block lang niya ang spells ni McGonagall? Hindi talaga siya lumaban. Oh, Snape.


coramaefollero wrote:I was really moved sa Locomotor charm ni Prof. Mcgonagal! Dun ako nagsimulang umiyak! It was like everyone's trying to protect Hogwarts!

Dito na tuluyang tumulo ang luha ko. Sobrang moving talaga 'yung paggalaw ng mga statues. At 'yung sumunod na scene na nag-ka-cast na ng protective spells sina Flitwick, Slughorn at Mrs. Weasley. I was like, "Aww... Come on! Let's protect Hogwarts!"


Nung unang panood ko, may mga scenes na pakiramdam ko nakulangan ako sa emosyon na na-depict (deaths of a number of characters, the R/Hr kiss). Nung unang panood kasi nag-ni-nitpick ako sa bawat detalye. Ang napapansin ko e kung ano ang mga pinalitan nila, bakit ganito lang kaikli ito, etc.

Pero sa second - and third - viewing ko (hehe), nakita ko na 'yung merits ng storytelling niya, lalo na 'yung mga quiet moments: 'yung hawakan ng kamay nina Remus and Tonks, 'yung last conversation ng Weasley twins, 'yung death ni Lavender, to name a few. Tama nga, lahat ng characters may moment.

Mahirap talaga mai-transfer ang matinding emosyon na nakuha ng fans mula sa book, pero I think they did a wonderful job in this movie.

I especially love the Prince's Tale part in the movie. Ang galing ng visuals, ang galing pa ng storytelling. I love Snape's Pieta over Lily's body. Sobrang emotional. Galing-galing ni Alan Rickman!

Dunno about the others, pero sobra akong na-move sa scene where Harry returns to Hogwarts. That part where Neville reveals Harry biglang cheer yung mga students then the HP theme music plays... La lang, sobrang tuwang-tuwa ako dun sa scene na yun.

The time that I really had tears was when I saw the bodies Lupin and Tonks. Man, it just looked realistic, their make-up and all. Sad That's my must-watch scene in the whole movie.

Same here.
It's also disturbing for me kasi I really loved the character (Lupin). Tapos sa book diba walang description on how he died and what he looked liked when he did (except na yun nga, isa sa mga nakahiga na patay na), and then nakita kong ganun sobrang bruised tapos yung kamay pa nila ni Tonks almost touching .. Crying or Very sad

That's my must-watch scene in the whole movie.
Ako naman ayoko na yata mawatch ulit yun scene na yan, kundi maiiyak nanaman ako. Embarassed

ok, here are some "STUFFS" (sorry jovan) haha that i noticed!

1. Voldy kept casting AK kay Harry during their duels, harry had the ability to block it. even if it wasnt verbal, the sparks and spell is green.
2. yeah, i also hated the fact that they "dismissed" the slytherins.
3. Lestrange's death should have been more dramatic or meaningful, emotionally, the viewers have that grudge na e. tas in less than 2 minutes, she explodes similar to how an angry bird hits a pig or a plank. (tightening spell + shattering spell is indeed unforgivable, wala na talagang trace ng katawan)
4. Elder Wand destroyed without fixing the holly wand.


edit (last paragraph was fact pala talaga! i just reread the flaw in the plan.) so i deleted it!

It's been over a week and I still can't express how I truly feel about the film.

I wish Avada Kedavra and Expelliarmus were expressed verbally. That way non-readers would appreciate the fact that until the end, Harry chose to disarm and not to kill.

Also, I think it would have been better if Harry and Voldemort battled the same way they did in the book. I wanted to see how Harry reestablished Snape's reputation before the entire school, especially when Harry talked to Snape about Dumbledore's death in front of the students in the earlier part of the movie.

I'd prefer it if Neville was offered to join Death Eaters (after attempting to attack Voldemort or Nagini) instead of being humiliated by the Dark Lord.

Seeing Fred, Tonks and Lupin after the battle reduced me to silent tears. It was heartbreaking to see them dead... again.

Snape. Oh Snape. I was very much looking forward to Prince's Tale and I wasn't disappointed. I got over the fact that they did not include the scene where Snape called Lily a "Mudblood" because the scene at Godric's Hollow more than made up for it.

The Hr/R kiss was I love you. Moment kung moment. Smile)

I applaud Maggie Smith for an epic performance. Cancer was no match for her. I also loved the humor injected here and there. [McGonagall to Molly; Lupin to Kingsley; Neville to the snatchers] That eased the tension a bit.

Other notes:
I was hurt when McGonagall dismissed the Slytherins like that.
I almost laughed when I saw the mini-Voldemort at King's Cross.
The Molly-Bellatrix fight was too short.
Hermione's lines were kinda "eh". It was so unlike her.
Voldemort hugging Draco was way too awkward.
The Neville-Luna was definitely for the fans. I wish they didn't go there.

There. I'm still not sure if I'm going to watch it again because it was spectacular or just because I want to see more of Harry Potter. Maybe both. Maybe not.

The certain thing is, I am going to watch it again.

Habang naghihintay ng sorting.. just want to share my thoughts on HP.

Ang weird I feel so left out kasi parang ako lang ang hindi nagkagusto sa HP7 part 2. even my friend cried while watching the movie and to think I was the fangirl... Crying or Very sad

Maybe it's coz I waited so long. I hardly slept and watched immediately when it opened. Maybe it was the fangirl in me who expected too much so I was disappointed when it didn't really end with a bang for me.

If I may qoute T.S. Elliot,
This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper.

I was hung up on HP really. Sana hindi na nila pinaghati kung ganon lang pala. Akala ko naman talagang bibigyan nila ng ending lahat kasi sabi dun sa mga interviews. Pero hindi naman. Ung ending na pinakita lang silang tatlo ang boring. Ganun lang ni hindi mukhang 19 years later.

They have taken so much creative license, sana sinagad na nila. Sana ung ending was actual the Welcome feast of the new generation or at least when they’re in the boats heading for Hogwarts or at least showing Hogwarts. Kasi sabi nga ni Dumbledore diba it's always in Hogwarts. Hayyy

I agree with
Marcus wrote:For me, maganda yung pacing pelikula kahit halos 2 hours lang. Pinakagusto kong scene 'yung nilabanan ni McGonagall si Snape. Nanghihinayang lang ako kasi wala 'yung scene na lalaban din 'yung mga centaurs, house elves, thestrals, buckbeak at iba pang wizards at witches.

That part in the book when everybody didn’t lose hope an the magical world united-wizards, witches, and magical elves alike- was amazing. Not to mention the house elves weren’t there! Scandalous! Kreacher had that moment fighting for Regulus’ revenge. Why was it not shown? I know the book is called Harry Potter and he is always there to save the day but it would it kill them to focus on other characters?! Parang wala lang kasi nung binubuhat ni Hagrid si Harry eh...

Prof. Trewlaney has 1 second apperance while she was hurtling crystal balls in the book. Would it kill you to make her hurl the freaking balls?that’s Emma Thompson for goodness sake!

I know that we couldn’ really wish the movie to be exactly like the book but would it kill them to probably stick to it more? There’s a reason it was a bestseller, right?

My last thought as I leave the theater: I could kill David Yates right now! Evil or Very Mad

I would happily watch it for more than 3 hours if it would give the ending justice.

Sorry for the babble, i just can’t let it go. Nakakaasar para ako lang sa mundo ang sobrang nadisappoint. another reason i'm weird. I need to rewatch it. And I hope you had a better experience.

The last scene they were in before they were shown dead, they were about to "touch hands" ... what made it dramatic for me is... that in death, their hands didn't reach. It was as if, they died.. hands apart Sad

BTW, I second the emotion of some here. I think the second part of DH was mostly drama, not epic action (but then again I'm a guy... so I prefer the latter). Guess the filmmakers opted for us to cry over it than feel enthralled with a good ending? I dunno, but for me it was like that. XD

agree! it would've been more dramatic with one of those slow-mo thingies they did like in the earlier parts of the battle as the protection charms over the castle crumbled.... where some flying Death Eaters were hit like flies with a swatter... in slow mo XD
