Please bear with me as I have to explain a couple small details about myself before I comment on this movie.
First and foremost, I'm not a Harry Potter fan. I've tried to read a couple of the books but I just couldn't make it through a single one as I found them to be a bit simple and kind of uninspiring for my taste but I understand that's just me and I think no ill thoughts of anyone who enjoys them.
Now then, about the movies. I've seen all of them at least once because of a female with whom I am rather fond. The first two weren't too bad I shall admit. A bit predictable and not overly complex or deep but by no means a waste of my time or money to see but once. The third film on the other hand I thought was just dreadful (as did the female fan who asked me to see it with her. You see it was her favorite "Potter" book and she thought the director ruined it and was kind enough to explain how and why she thought that after the movie was over.) and filled with great many unexplained who, what, where, when, and whys(Which my female friend was kind enough to tell me about as they were things in the book but not on the screen and a big reason for her dislike for said film.) . Plus it looked to me liked it was done by a man who wants very badly to be Tim Burton and just isn't, for both very little good and in this case very much ill, and who didn't even bother to watch the first two movies let alone find out who the characters are, how they behave and where the bloody story even takes place. What a waste of my time and money. I will say that it was not as bad as "The Incredible Hulk" movie or the "40 Year Old Virgin" but still no where near as good as the first two movies which I thought were really just "OK" at best to begin with.
So now we come to this latest film and what can I say, I liked it. I really, really like it. In fact, I would like to see it again and what's more, I would be happy to buy it on DVD once it's released. This was the first and only Harry Potter movie that I wanted to see on my own after viewing a couple of the trailers and believe it or not, I was the one to ask a certain female to go see it at the Midnight show Thursday night/Friday morning. Needless to say she was rather surprised and pleased by this turn of events and was quite kind to me later on that morning.
Oh yes, she rather enjoyed the movie as well.
