THE LAST ONE.
THE FINALE.
Actual review of the entire series at the bottom.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Part 2.

Oh, we’re just off with a bang. Voldemort has the …..special wand.

Solid intro to the WB logo.

SNAPE! On team Snape forever.

FinaleFREE FROM THIS LIFE M I RITE.

Hey Luna <3

Resurrection spell! Maybe Harry will finally get his dead parents back. Trust me Harry, I’m a Buffy fan, resurrecting the dead ends badly.

How dare you Ron, Bellatrix isn’t hideous.

Who the fuck is Ron supposed to be? Just….a random disguise?

This is like a less trippy and child scarring acid trip than the tunnel in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I think this hypnotizing spell they’re using on the troll is called marijuana.

FinaleOh my god, did they just kill the stoned troll via dragon fire? This is why you don’t smoke dope, kids.

Come now, don’t be shy, step into the light.

Voldemort would be so much better with a nose.

OH snap, the other troll is dead. That’s what you get for being a greedy bitch.

How did they NOT get Ian McKellen to play Dumbledore’s brother. Epic fail. Maybe…they look too much alike.

Maybe the twins are time travelers and they’re actually Dumbledore 1 & 2 and they’re just watching themselves.

NEVILLE!

Sooooo happy Snape is speaking. Please be in every scene from here on out.

I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY SNAPE IS A BAD GUY. Like, I know you’re going to be a good guy again eventually. You have to be. YOU HAVE TO BE. Not that it really matters because #TeamSnape

OH, sorry Snape, but 10 bucks on Maggie Smith at all times.

I would give up Harry Potter in a SECOND.

FOR FUCK SAKES, GO AWAY FOREVER CARETAKER.

“Isn’t it obvious? We have to talk to someone who’s dead.” – Luna. No….NO…DON’T YOU DARE BRING MYRTLE INTO THIS………………………………………………………….Oh thank God. Some other dead chick.

FinaleI wonder if Ron’s family would adopt me. Then I could be best friends with the twins. I just love them ever so.

I hate how big Ron’s family is, totally means someone is going to die. As long as it’s not the twins, we’re 5 by 5.

DEAD BITCH, GIVE UP THE HORCRUX, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.

Oh Neville, honey, don’t taunt the army of….things.

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Ron and Hermione finally kiss!

OH MAN, GO ON NEVILLE. What a hero.

Remember when Hagrid was a character?

Awwww Neville loves Luna? I am definitely on board with that.

Oh hi Draco out of nowhere.

I can’t wait to never hear Ron say “bloody hell” again.

I always thought Draco would become a badass. Instead he’s kind of a little bitch.

FinaleI’m really glad Rowling didn’t shy away from killing kids and teens.

No need for saying thanks, Draco.

Ahhhhhhhh of course the snake is the last horcrux. Perfect. I like the snake. I vote we don’t kill the snake.

THE WAND BELONGS TO SNAPE. VOLDEMORT IS GONNA KILL SNAPE.

RUN AWAY. SNAPE. DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN STANDING STILL. TURN INTO BATS.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! SNAAAAAAAAAAAPE.

I’M FINE WITH KILLING THE SNAKE NOW. DEFINITELY FINE WITH IT.

I WILL LITERALLY MURDER EVERYONE IF ONE OF THE TWINS DIES.

I am very glad Snape wasn’t actually eaten by the snake.

Ugh. Alan Rickman was NOT in this enough. Boo everyone.

OH GOD WHO IS ON THAT STRETCHER.

Finale

giphy

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOASDHFGO;JLABH ;Oo jfbhvlsjdfbh kdjfvbnjdlsf.
WHY FUCK. GODDAMMIT WHY FRED WEASLEY.

MY FEELINGS.

I KNEW IT. I KNEW IT WAS ALL A PLAN BETWEEN TUMBLEDORE AND SNAPE.

THESE FLASHBACKS THOUGH.

Oh man. Harry’s going to die?! I CAN’T EVEN RIGHT NOW.

Finale

giphy.

“Always” UGHHGHSOLJDHGL SKD. 

I am devastated.

I HATE HOW MUCH AFFECT THIS MOVIE IS HAVING ON ME FFS.

Hi Hagrid. Can’t wait for you to die. Let’s just kill everyone. Where’s Luna and Neville? Why let them be happy? Let’s torture them maybe.

FinaleIs Harry in Heaven OH MY FUCKING CHRIST WHAT IS THIS FETUS KILL IT WITH FIRE.

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” DELIGHTFUL quote, Dumbledead.

Neville, you should run away.

HAHAHA Voledmort laughing at Harry’s “death”. That’s great.

God Draco, get your head out of Thranduil’s ass.

Don’t do it Neville. Don’t go near Voldemort please. I can’t handle this.

Yeah, hermione, throw a rock at the snake, that’ll work.

Goddammit I hope Neville is the actual hero of this movie.

GO ON RON’S MOM. AVENGE YOUR SON! BYE BELLA!

FinaleMotherFUCKING yes.

Bye Voldemort. See you never.

19 YEARS LATER. THE FUCK.

Draco is just let off the hook? For all the things? Kay. AND someone spawned with that sniveling idiot? DRACO WAS A MAJOR LET DOWN.

Albus Severus Potter?!!? <333333

Terrible name though.

IT’S OVER.


 

Review of the entire series.

Okay so as individual movies, I did not like Harry Potter until the Deathly Hallows. The first two movies I don’t even really remember because I hated them. Because I’m not a child…kind of. The third movie finally perked up my interest with its time traveling ways, and I thought it was really well done. The Goblet of Fire was enjoyable because they were become young adults and everyone had squeaky voices and flow-y hair. Also, David Tennant exists and Twilight dies. How can I hate on this movie?

The next movie introduced me to Luna and Umbridge and it wasn’t until this movie that I finally developed feelings. Feelings of instant love for Luna and pure goddamn hatred for Umbridge. And that’s when I realized I actually liked these movies. If I don’t feel at least 3 different feelings in a movie, chances are, I’m not going to enjoy it.

I found the Half-Blood Prince to be mostly boring until the end. I 100% did not see Dumbledore dying and I can’t believe that was never spoiled for me. I was upset but Dumbeldore had never overly grown on me, so I was able to move on. The entirety of the Deathly Hallows left me in the fetal position clutching my laptop in rage and screaming “whyyyyy” at the TV. Classic Carolyn, getting attached to minor characters only to have them die.

Watching Snape die, I kind of saw it coming. Voldemort doesn’t seem like a “run away and never return” kind of guy. He’s a “I will literally kill you” bro, which you don’t see all that often in children/teen central’d books/movies. The worst death for me in the entire series that sent me into Extreme Fetus, was Fred Weasley. It physically hurt and was completely unexpected. At this point, I felt personally victimized by Rowling. The second thing to violently destroy every fiber of my being was the entire flashback scene with Dumbledore, Snape, and Harry’s parents.

The reason I started watching Harry Potter was for Alan Rickman. I had seen most of his movies but never Harry Potter. And when he died, I figured this would be the best way to honour his death considering everyone has a boner for his character. When Rickman died, everyone was blowing up twitter and all the other social media platforms with pictures of him and the quote “always”. I never knew the context of it. Watching the Snape and Dumbledore was wildly intense and a scene that will be etched in my stupid fucking memory forever.

“After all this time?”
“Always.”

So I get it. I finally get you Potterheads and your intense fandomly ways.

Individual movies? Meh, for the most part.
The entire series as a whole? Awesome.

Number 1 Feeling: Instant love and adoration for Luna.
Number 2 Feeling: Mind numbing rage for Umbridge.
Number 3 Feeling: Shock over Snape actually killing Dumbledore.
Number 4 Feeling: Absolute devastation for Fred.
Number 5 Feeling: “Always.” Reminder that Alan Rickman is dead and I hate my life.

Overall rating for the series: 4/5

    I am so happy you got some actual feelings out of it, I was worried you’d get through the entire series with little more than a shrug. I agree it works better as a series than individual pieces. It’s a shame the best parts and characters don’t arrive or get more attention until halfway through.

    My review of your review – 4.5/5

    Yeah, the Deathly Hallows part 2 was amazing. The gut check you feel when Snape dies, Harry soon realizes that he has to die and Snape did it all for Lily and Harry’s dad doesn’t seem so cool. And how Neville becomes awesome. And I do love Luna too.

    When you said that you were going to kill everyone if one of the twins died, I literally said, “Oh crap” and had to explain myself to my husband. I’m sorry about all your devastation.

    I think that if Richard Harris hadn’t died and was able to continue playing Dumbledore, you would’ve been more attached. Michael Gambon was a horrible replacement and made Dumbledore super creepy which he’s not at all in the books. Also be happy you didn’t read the books with Umbridge because she is honestly like 10 times more evil than they make her in the movie.
