While I was less than thrilled with some aspects of “Deathly Hallows”, overall the experience was pretty good. Specific thoughts:
I wasn’t crazy about the scene where the soldiers of Dumbledore’s Army were all sitting around smoking Cohibas and talking about the meaning of life, and I really didn’t like where I thought they were going with the scene where Ginny was having trouble parking her broom while all the other Weasleys waited inside. (I was wrong, thank God.)
I loved the bit where Professor McGonagall sang “One More For The Road”, and I thought Luna throwing Draco off the roof was great. (I’ve been walking around all day dreamily saying, “He’s in the car” and laughing.)
Hagrid garrotting Neville Longbottom from the backseat I never saw coming — I really thought they were going to let him off — and I was blown away by the graphic revelation of Tonks’s true gender. (How they will handle that reveal in the movie and still get a PG, I have no idea. Same for the last shot of Voldemort, looking in the mirror at his famous wand.)
Hermione telling Harry she’ll always love him, then slapping him and coldly saying, “But I’m not your fucking whore” gave me goosebumps. Ron & Harry subsequently sailing off the cliff in that weird-ass enchanted car, I thought was awfully melodramatic, and I didn’t get the thing with the dim-looking house elf and the Hogwarts snowglobe. But Snape’s waking up in bed with Suzanne Pleshette right after Reginald VelJohnson shoots Lucius Malfoy…that was fucking tops.
