Phoning it in, before I forget to post (SPOILERS, AHOY)

Parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) that made me cry:

1. Hedwig! It was even sadder than the book HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?
2. Hermione wiping her parents' memories...good lord.
3. Everyone fretting over (St.) George.
4. Harry finding his parents' graves.
5. Dobby. Effing Dobby.

Parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) that made my heart melt:

1. Ron's face as Hermione taught him how to play the piano.
2. Hermione's face when Ron told them how he found them.
3. These will actually all just be Hermione and Ron related, so I'll stop now.

Parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) that made me feel icky:

1. Harry and Hermione dancing, until it got goofy.
2. Harry and Hermione topless-making-out in Ron's scary waking nightmare thing. Gross. I need to wash my eyes with bleach.


  1. Agreed. I was so worried they were going to make out!

  2. Just saw it last night. I didn't shed any tears, but then I seldom actually cry, I just get ripped up inside. The two deaths that wrecked me the most in the book were Hedwig and Dobby, and of course, they happened in film Part 1.

    I was watching with some friends, and when it came to the HP/HG making out thing (ew), I pointed out that definitely wasn't in the book. My friend said, "Looks like they read a little R-rated fan fiction along with Rowling's book." [Now that I think of it, I have to wonder why my friend knows so much about the content of R-rated Harry Potter fan fiction...]

    Now I somehow have to read all the books again, watch all the movies again, and then go see Part 1 in the theater again.

  3. i'm coming out of lurkerdom to double agree with you about hedwig. the worst part was that i (and the people in my immediate vicinity) all thought it was going to be safe when he let her out of the cage. we breathed a collective sigh of relief only to collectively gasp when she flew back in to attack the death eater. it is still making me feel sadface today. :( other than that i loved this movie more than the rest combined!!
