Harry Potter... IT ALL ENDS. Give me more Kleenex!

Happy Friday!

So yup, after months of waiting, the day has finally come... it truly is the end of an era. *Sigh*

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has already earned $126 million -- it hasn't even been in theatres for a full 24 hours... simply phenomenal. Okay, I should warn you guys, I'm probably gonna be gushing about Harry Potter for the remainder of this post. ;)

All the actors in this movie did a brilliant job (well, maybe Bonnie Wright could've done a better job at the bridge scene and the "19 years later" scene, but it's okay, I still loved the movie!).

Daniel Radcliffe did an amazing job. I am convinced that he is really Harry Potter, I mean who else would Harry Potter be besides Daniel Radcliffe, right? Haha, I hope that made sense.

"How dare you stand where he stood. Tell them what happened that night. Tell them how you looked him in the eye. A man who trusted you, and killed him!"

Rupert Grint... he's always been my favorite!!!
He can make you laugh and cry at the same time.

Emma Watson... the girl can do no wrong. One of her scenes made me tear up... I'm not gonna say which one though. ;)

And of course, the Ron and Hermione kiss! Some people say it wasn't good enough, but hey, we waited ten long years for that, so I am not complaining... now if only Rupert and Emma can be a real-life couple, haha. ;)

Matthew Lewis - I know the web has been all abuzz with how dashing our dear Neville Longbottom is in real life... come on, have you seen his recent red carpet photos?

I love how Neville shined in his own way in this movie. Yay, Neville! :D

Voldie, Voldie, Voldie... greatest villain of all time! Ralph Fiennes, you are amazing!

Snaaaaaape, I always knew you were good!

The flashbacks that explained Snape's background were a bit hurried, and it's probably confusing to those who haven't read the book, but I think they did it the best way they could. Alan Rickman is absolutely brilliant, I wonder why he's never been nominated for an Oscar...

Professor McGonagall!!! I love her.

"Potter, it's good to see you."

Fred and George -- my favorite twins ever!

Tom Felton... I love how well he portrayed Draco - Tom can make you hate him in one scene, and pity him in another.

Not gonna lie, it's not the same without Crabbe...
(No offense to the new guy, though... he was a good replacement.)

Our favorite witch and wizards. :)

I really hope they have more movies to come after Harry Potter. These three can totally be the next Colin Firth and Hugh Grant and Kate Winslet. ;)

Ten years, wow, ten years... what am I supposed to do now? No more Harry Potter books or movies to look forward to. :(

I was only 11 years old when this started, I honestly feel like I grew up with them... well, I did in a way. :)

Anyway, the movie... It's the kind of movie that will make you feel excited, make you cheer, make you laugh and cry, make you feel nostalgic, make you sad, make you feel happy -- it will probably evoke every kind of emotion there is. It was fast-paced, action-packed, and you can tell everyone involved in it did their best to give us the best ending possible - an ending that gives justice to this epic saga. I wish they added more dialogue to the "19 years later" though, but I understand it's a long book - and despite that, I still think they did an amazing amazing job with the movie. It's a beautiful ending to a beautiful story. And yet I still can't believe it's over!!!

Excuse me while I get some more Kleenex...

Do you need to dry your tears too? Well then, let's watch this funny video! :)

Robert Pattinson -- American? Whaaat?! Haha.
I think it will be easy for Tom Felton to get American roles, how excellent is his American accent? Rupert's expression when he asked if the Chips Ahoy were really chewy is priceless!

Have you seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2? Thoughts? (without spoiling anything though, haha) ;)

*P.S. My Perricone giveaway is open until July 23rd! :D*


  1. Hey Mimi! I hear you about missing Harry Potter. I read all the books when they first came out years ago in England. The movies were always spot on on its interpretation of the books. I shall have to wait and watch this one because I definitely don't want to watch this movie in Italian. They dub everything here.

    Big hugs girl! xoxo

  2. This is such an amazing review! I cannot wait to see the movie. It sounds so magical, and I will actually miss waiting for it!


  3. Will need to watch this movie asap! Thanks for dropping by my blog. xx

  4. there are honestly no words to sum up the harry potter series! j.k. rowling is an unbelievably talented writer :) i enjoyed the movie immensely, however nothing can compare to the books! all the characters were casted perfectly, especially the wonderful trio! the Pensieve scenes left me so teary, and yes, i definitely agree - alan rickman is an incredible actor :') the only thing i didn't particularly love about the movie was that the final battle was a little anti-climatic as there was no crowd watching! apart from that, they did a fantastic job and i want to watch it again and again ♥

  5. i know exactly how u feel! i feel so empty after watching this last film, its like there's nothing to look forward to now...

    alan rickman did an incredible job in his scenes, it was so touching to see him cradle lily in his arms!!! i thought the movie was great but i was a little disappointed with the final battle to be honest, since it wasn't exactly like how it was describe in the book. i still love the movie though!

  6. I'm not seeing HP Part II until monday. I feel sad already though!

  7. It really was action packed. Of course, I always want more Draco. And I so loved Ron with Wavy hair and beard!


  8. i'm so excited about harry potter!!! i can't believe it's the last movie.. so sad though :(

  9. For some reason, i don't think this is the last we'll see of the series - in book form that is! :)

  27. I've read the books but never seen the movies?
    Should I ?

    Always following
    The Dolls Factory

  28. Rosie-- same heeeeerrrreeee! :D

    Dolls Factory-- yes, i think it's a good idea to watch the movies. :)

  29. i couldn't agree with you more on the movie! it was absolutely amazing, and the effects were phenomenal! :)

    i never read any of the books, but saw all the movies. a round of applause goes to jk rowling. :)

    SWEATshirt DRESSshirt

  30. SWEATshirtDRESSshirt-- yes, a big big round of applause to the amazing J.K. Rowling! :D

  31. Yeah, loved your post here... I was also satisfied with ending, they did put a great effort. There were few details I didn't like (but they're only details). Every single actor did a fantastic job (I laughed when I read your words- Voldie). You put in more or less everything I would say, so just few more things to say. It's true for some of us HP series are special because we grew up with books and movies. Talking about being excited; for me it's not end yet, now that I've seen HP in 2D, I'm in no hurry to see HP 3D ;o)


  32. I think I know which scene that made you cry with
    Hermione lol because I wanted to cry too ><

    I liked the going into the vault scene and the part
    where professor mcgonaga used her magic to protect
    the school

  33. ML-- i'm glad you loved the movie too! and i definitely want to see it again... perhaps in 3D. :)

    Peiji-- i'll message you on twitter about that scene. ;) and yeah, professor mcgonagall is badass! ;)

  34. OH MY GOSH! I still can't believe it's over. I really didn't want it to end. The last movie as amazingly magical. I loved every single second of it. It was FANTASTIC. *sniff sniff*

    I saw that video at youtube. It was hilarious.


  35. Carrie-- i didn't want it to end either! honestly, if they made the movie 5 hours, i wouldn't care, i'd sit through it and enjoy it, haha. ;)

  36. OH WOW! That video made me laugh so hard, thank you for share that XD
