i'm sure all of you were thinking that this whole movie experience was, again, showcasing how awesome i am in fangirling that it shows on my reviews but it's not gonna be that. no, not today. i tried to analyze the movie intellectually and see if i can understand at least half of it. to be honest, i have never read the book only until after the movie so this explains why i am in awe in the whole sequence of the film. but i have actually read the last book so i may have at least an idea of what is going on. so before watching the film, i reminded myself to separate the movie from the book. and also, i reminded myself to actually analyze the story carefully in which i did and i'm proud. HAHA
the obvious, OBVIOUS comment i've heard about the movie was the one where they said there are contrasting parts from the book to the movie. THAT'S WHY i reminded myself: what you read ain't what you get. David Yates gave his own interpretation of HBP and that's not saying he's better than the author or any of us who've read the book. and it worked. personally, i didn't care if Luna Lovegood was the one who found Harry in the bus instead of Tonks. there was no issue whether the quest for getting Horace Slughorn's memory was altered a bit. and absolutely no problem about the way Mr. Yates had portrayed that Hermione-Ron-Lavender Brown love triangle.
being a fan, i am mostly bothered by people who say the movie was boring and did not liven up to their expectations of the series. well personally i could agree with this only if i did not understand even at least half of it. what makes a movie interesting in a moviegoer's perspective is his level of involvement in the elements of the movie (e.g. emotions, acting, plots). i had this urge to understand in context what the movie is trying to explain and it didn't pass as boring to me at least.
now let's talk about Ron Weasley. HAHAHAHA KIDDING! no but seriously, this paragraph may have a dose of fangirling involved so i'm telling you earlier. you have been warned. i love the fact that the three main characters have grown up so much physically and acting-wise. i was looking back at the younger Ron Weasley in The Sorcerer's Stone and i can't not say how cute he was. the words are just urging to come out of my mouth. and look how he is now, huh. that boy has grown into one fine man. and i'd probably stop myself here to prevent myself for going any further about Won-Won.
Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) have matured enough but the feeling of familiarity is still there. David Yates might have altered the book a bit but he didn't fail to give the audience the same trio that we have come to know and love. and the actors are brilliant as well. and then there's Dumbledore (Michael Gambon), who had at least a bigger involvement in the movie than the last one, and Snape (Alan Rickman) who, in my opinion, are the strongest players in this game. they lived up to their characters so much that it shows. another great characterization goes to Horace Slughorn (Jim Broadbent) who lived up to what J.K. Rowling has intended her to be. disturbed and mysterious with a bright sense of favoritism. Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) and Luna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch) are my favorites in the movie one: for being pretty fierce and two: for being fiercely pretty. i don't know if many of you've realized but these two should be given more recognition often.
that being said, i could say the movie is given proper justice by Mr. Yates than what i could with my own interpretation. it is fairly enjoyable considering the amount of information you need to grasp to decipher what was going on althroughout. every scene is important to know this. if you have the patience, then i reckon you could possibly enjoy the movie with or without noticing its flaws. and then you could see how amazing Rupert Grint was in the movie and yes i was only saying that because i am such an admirer. HAHAHA. but he is. :))
now there's a huge part of me that's saying i don't want this to end yet but i can't wait for the next and final installment. even if it's going to be in two parts.
