Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2

There are heathens out there, possibly even in my own family, who have not seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 yet, so I shall attempt to shield them by hiding the rest of this entry behind the jump. Venture there with me, all ye who dare!

I can't agree with you more on every single one of these thoughts. (Especially with 2, 4, 5, and 7 and Neville/Luna--what the hell is right.) I would also add in that Harry and Ginny seem to have the most passionless relationship ever. It's kind of gross. They barely even touched on Ariana and I thought Tonks/Lupin got way too little screen time. Why didn't they get to touch hands when they were fighting together? At least give them that much! (And when it shows them together dead, their hands are barely not touching then, too. CUT THEM SOME SLACK.) (And no Teddy, either! Boo.) Voldemort's death scene bothered me the most, though. It was WAY too underplayed with little to no emotion. This is motherfreaking Voldemort we're talking about, people!
As I left the midnight showing, I had a conversation with my friend that is on the same HP wavelength that I am and we were a little bit quiet as we walked out of the theater. "Well?" I said. She replied, "I feel bad for saying this, wasn't as good as I hoped it would be." "Oh my gosh, ME TOO. I'm so glad I'm not the only one."
I did like King's Cross, the interaction between the Malfoys, the Snape and Lily stuff but only sort of, Helena Ravenclaw, and the Gringotts scene/dragon.

I wish I could have seen your Neville reenactment.

When we eventually meet up, remind me to act it out for you!

I've never had very strong feelings about the Harry/Ginny relationship, and I think the movies are at least partly to blame for that. I don't know if it's Daniel Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright, or the way that they're written, but I don't see any chemistry there.

Since we never got to see Baby Teddy (and only got a passing mention of him), I would have at least liked to have seen him smooching on Victoire at King's Cross. But basically I just want to see his hair change colors.

I think I speak for the entire world when I say "Please, please, please film yourself acting out the Neville scene and post it for us."
