Harry P and the Weird Hug-Tumble Over Hogwarts

Two weeks ago this very hour I was standing in line, slightly worried that I wasn’t going to make it into the theater to see Mr. Harry P. and the midnight showing. Three hours less than two weeks ago I was eating Lucky Charms and waiting for the subway home, mulling over the final film and wondering how bad I looked after sobbing for part of the movie. (Also wondering how bad I’d look the next morning at the career fair, but so it goes.)

I liked the movie. I’m a huge fan of the books and I try to think of the movies as distinct entities from the books. I liked Deathly Hallows, Part One better, but I definitely liked the second half. I’m not going to do a review here, though, I’m just going to take you through all the weird bits which, to me, make the movies kind of charming in a silly way.

  • The weirdest of the weirdness was definitely the hug-tumble that Voldemort and Harry do off of a cliff with some bouncing off of turrets and generally blurriness. I have no idea what that was about. I knew about part of it because of the trailer but really, so weird.
  • Why did all the goblins look horribly deformed?
  • Poor Cormac didn’t graduate.
  • Voldemort hugging Draco. Weird.
  • Awkward bloody baby train-heaven Voldemort. Gross, and kind of silly.
  • OLD MAN DAN RADCLIFFE & CO. Talk about WEIRD. Also, Rupert’s old man belly.
  • HP’s kids’ names… OH WAIT THAT WAS ROWLING’S FAULT lolololol.

I’m sure there are others, but that’s all I can think of now. Thanks, movies, for being so weird sometimes! Also if ANYONE reads this blog and can think of more, please suggest your own weird bits!
(But Siriusly [pun intended], I liked the movie. The acting was WAY better than it has been before, especially from Dan Radcliffe. And I cried SO MUCH during the Resurrection Stone scene and the Snape loves Lily scene and the people-who-died montage, etc. I want to see it again.)

    BEST/WORST PART OF THE WHOLE MOVIE: The look on BabyHarry’s face when Snape is all crying over Lily’s dead body. This was my one moment of inappropriate laughter during the movie. It was almost as bad as when I laughed at Ron yelling at Harry about not having a family during Part One.

      I wish I had noticed! Next time I see the movie I’ll pay attention to that particular part. I was too busy being all sad for Snape to be as soulless as you clearly are.
