Ok. Now that it's been a few days and I know a lot of you have seen the movie by now... this is my last major post on the last movie installment of Harry Potter.
PLEASE: IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE MOVIE YET OR READ THE BOOK PLEASE SKIP THIS POST AND COME BACK WHEN YOU HAVE!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.
I do not want to be responsible for spoiling anything for you.
At the end... instead of Harry using the Elder wand to fix his wand that got broken in Godric's Hollow... he just snaps it in two... when in the book, he uses the Elder wand, being that it is unbeatable, to fix his wand and then he returns the wand to Dumbledore's tomb. When the snapping scene took place, I turned to Dave and said "I guess he doesn't NEED a wand, he's Harry effing Potter" ha ha ha. I was just really grumpy about it. The thing is, it really wouldn't have taken much time or effort to have kept that in step with the book. They showed that his wand got broken in DH pt 1...
So that's my gripe with the last installment. I loved it... cried like a baby... there was some BRILLIANT acting done by my favorite Alan Rickman, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Gambon (who I initially HATED as Dumbledore but came to adore him after HBP), etc... It was all great. Except for... the wand. Grrrrrr.
