Hubby, Bubby and I saw The Deathly Hallows Part II yesterday and it was great. Some real boo-hoo moments (for me) and some great action scenes (for them). I am the only one of us that has read the books. Well, Bubby and I are currently working on the first book together but I read them all over the years. I was a bit late to the game, the first movie was being advertised before I jumped on the bandwagon, I think. My bff had been telling me about these books for a few years, but I stupidly passed them off as 'kids books'. I. Am. Not. Too. Bright. I think the Goblet of Fire was out before I started reading them. My mom gave me the first two books and I finally caved and within a chapter I was hooked. Totally Ga-Ga. They were like Halloween for me, I loved all the magic and make believe. I appreciated that JKR could create this whole new world and I totally bought into it. That woman is friggin brilliant!!!
I have always considered the movies as part of the whole package. So yesterday really was The End for me. Sniff, Sniff, Sniff! I will miss that fabulous threesome something terrible.
I won't ruin it for you if you haven't seen it yet. Once again the writers, producers and actors did a great job taking the book to the screen. That Ron and Hermione moment was great, although somewhat changed. That Mrs. Weasley vs. Bellatrix Lestrange moment was classic and I will admit to a little fist pump when the best line EVER was delivered!
