So last night I was at the press preview for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2”, which I think everyone and their uncle knows by now is the final (FINAL!) installment of a film series that has lasted a decade and earned Warner Bros $6 billion dollars.
Much like any normal fan that grew up with the books, I was pretty excited and actually expected to be quite emotional at this event. After all, the books have been with me for almost 15 years, while the movies have been a mainstay in my movie viewing schedule for almost a decade.
I have actually been liking the movies more and more over the years, and I thought that as they were increasing in quality, the ultimate film in the octet would be the best in the lot. Maybe that was the most crucial mistake on my part.
Because I thought the movie was…well…
kind of a fail not as good as I wanted it to be.
