The End–Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Tonight my family will go to the theater to watch the last of the Harry Potter movies together.  We typically only see the action adventure movies at the theater for the sound and video  experience – even though the finished basement in our home has a pretty nice setup for Blu-ray viewing.  But once in a while we’ll over-pay to watch a show or two.

We’ve watched all of these Harry Potter movies.  I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with them.  As with most movies translated from books before them, the movie leaves out so much or changes the story enough that I’m disappointed to some degree.  The Harry Potter movies are definitely that way as well.  The first few were pretty weak, but they seem to have improved in quality wth each new movie.  But I still recommend to anyone who likes the movie adaptation to check out the actual book as they are almost always better.

I still look forward to this final chapter of the movie series.  Here’s the trailer for those of you who haven’t seen the movie itself yet.
