Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 is great, great, great! I absolutely loved it. (Even though I drank too much tea before hand and needed to go to the bathroom almost throughout the entire movie!)
The film was very long, and it had a distinctively Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring feel to it. The main characters were like running the whole time and there were plenty of beautiful wide shots to make the world feel very expansive. I also enjoyed the fact that this last story is divided into two parts, because then the filmmakers could focus on every little detail. There were a lot of brilliant new set pieces that really helped one get acquainted with some of the supporting characters. Other than that, the dark subject matter makes for some really lovely visual work. Especially the color palette. Staying monochromatic almost the entire time, only slightly playing with bright elements here and there to add contrast. Reminding the audience that the world is still beautiful, despite the tragic events and that perhaps there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
So now I get to count down the days until the last part. On July 15th, I'll be there bright and early.
