Harry Potter 8 - The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)

Harry, Ron, and Hermione search for Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes in their effort to destroy the Dark Lord as the final battle rages on at Hogwarts.

It's the final one. The showdown of showdowns. The somewhat unexpected and also partially anti-climatic one, and a run-in with Dumbledore that's maybe not really real after all, but the run in with his brother is all the more so...

I wonder if they just brought him aboard to remind us of him. Or as a necessary new savior. He doesn't seem all as powerful, but still...

(spoilers below)

There were some really nice words at the end too, on Dumbledore's behalf. On the power of word, and implicitly also on writing.

Wonder if that was from the original books, or something they added in as a homage thereto.

It's a flashy and pompous war, though battled unfortunately much in darkness, and it feels like it ends almost too easily, and without as much casualty as you might expect.

I really thought these last two were darker! I thought most of the familiar faces were gone when it was over. Turns out there are still plenty. So rejoice. I guess it was made mainly for kids after all.

But it was such a long venture into the darkness, and then they skip 19 years and it's all done, and the characters barely look any older.

Would've liked to see more of them.

Adventures henceforth. How they managed their lives after all those crazy times being chased for crimes... hope we'll get to see that some time.

It ends bright, but a little inconclusively.

 rated 4.5/5: almost awesome

    Ooh that's news to me! Wonder if they're recorded for online viewing...

    There's also the cinematic 'Magical Beasts' series, and the Dumbledore spin-off now, though not really direct sequels either of them. Suppose you know of those though.
