Last night I finally got out to see the last Harry Potter movie (the Husband was out-of-town for awhile so I was waiting for him – that’s true love).
::Sort of Spoiler Alert::
Did anyone else find the aging effects at the end really ridiculous? Harry was just funny looking. The only one who actually looked aged was Draco. Maybe they ran out of their budget at the end? Then I started thinking about how being a wizard parent might be kind of cool because you raise your kids for the first few years and then you send them off to an all-expenses paid boarding school. So basically you only raise your kids during the summer and a week or two at Christmas? (I guess there aren’t any Jewish wizards?) It’s rather shocking when you think about it.
I also found the scene where Harry and Voldemort were flying through the air really funny, and I think I was supposed to be full of suspense and maybe fear, but I kept thinking that they looked like they were in front of a fun house mirror at a fair or something.
I sound like I hated the movie. I didn’t. I was actually worried about it only being two hours long, but I thought they fit most everything nicely in. I almost teared up a bit during Snape’s memories. Poor Snape. I’m not sure why Lily didn’t go for him since James always seemed like kind of a dick and totally not her type since she seemed to like to nurture broken things. Did James even say anything when Harry was looking at everyone with the Resurrection Stone? Everyone was being all nice and supportive and James was just staring Harry down. It was weird.
Anyway, those our my thoughts. I’ll be back tomorrow!
