Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 now out on DVD & Blu-Ray!

Please be aware that there may be some spoilers, so if you haven't read the book or seen the film, avert your eyes. ;D

If you haven't seen HP7 Part 1, now is the time! Part 2 and the last and final film of the Harry Potter series will be in theaters July 17th, 2011. That's TWO months away! Are you excited? Because I know I am. (:

One of my favorite scenes from the film, was the 7 Potters scene, and pretty much any scene with polyjuice potion involved. I haven't seen the film since it was in theaters, so my memory is a little fuzzy. Just goes to show that I need to watch it asap!

Here may be some spoilers... so beware!
If you read the the book, you'll know there are some clear differences. For one, they never explained the significance of the shattered mirror piece (which I'm sure they will in Part 2). In the books, it was given to Harry from Sirius as way of communication. In the film, however, it just suddenly appeared. In the film when Harry and Ron was held captive in Malfoy Manor, and Hermione was being tortured by Bellatrix Lestrange, I was expecting Ron to be screaming Hermione's name like in the book. But there was no screaming! In the book, the invisibility cloak was used often throughout the first half of the book but was hardly used in the film. And last point I'll make, Peter Pettigrew lives in the film (or at least in the Part 1). In the book, Pettigrew dies for feeling remorse when Harry lets him live and because of that his silver hand, which was created by Voldermort, kills him.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is probably my favorite book out of the series; Prisoner of Azkaban being close second. It made me laugh. It made me cry. It made me feel OMGGGGG. It saddens me that the series is over and almost over with the films. Rowling put a lot of work and thought into her series and she is one of the best authors ever.

So here's a recommendation: Read the books!


  1. I loved your review, had to skip over a few parts so I didn't get any major spoilers (looking forward to the next movie!)

  2. I was curious about that shattered mirror piece, I was like WHUT?! I love HP and have read up to 5, I want to finish the series. cant believe peter pettigrew dies that way, crazy.
