Movie Reviews: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 premiere & Green Lantern
I'm glad we didn't try to sneak in because security was tighter than an airport at the premier of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. You had to have your ticket and the wrist band they gave you, yes they gave out wrist bands. I definitely underestimated it. Shows were selling out by the minute. I was lucky to get my tickets for the part 1 and 2 showing back to back at the Manhattan Palace 16 theater, which is no where near as nice as the Elmwood Palace 20 theater but they were accommodating. We got there an hour early to get good seats. People were dressed up as their fave characters, of course. and we got these cool Harry Potter style 3D glasses. I thought that was really neat. Part 1 was not in 3D though. There was about a 30 minute break between movies. Everyone applauded when the movies started and the room was silent. Not a phone went off, not a baby cried. And as the motto for the movie says, "It All Ends"...well, it really did. It was everything you would have expected from the HP movies, with a little bit more. I personally only read the first book, "The Sorcerer's Stone" and I've heard the movies miss a few things from the books,(only because there's no way you can fit every little detail from a book into a film) but I couldn't have asked for a better ending. Parts made you cry, parts made you laugh, and parts made you reminisce back to when they were younger. It was a beautiful ending. For any HP fan, you won't regret it. I say they should start a TV series with the way it ended(hint hint to TV Producers) and I don't want to spoil it by saying anything else. Catch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at a theater near you.
Movie Review #2: Green Lantern
I so want to go back and see it in 3D. It was definitely a movie made for 3D. The graphics were AMAZING. and in your face even on a regular screening. The plot overall was good. Ryan Reynolds played his part, and as always, hot as hell doing it. It was nice seeing Blake Lively in something other than Gossip Girls, and it was your same old super hero gets the girl type ordeal. I was happy that for once the girl saw through the mask, which in most movies its totally obvious who the hero really is...The villian(s) were superb. and the line between comedy and drama was thin. Its Ryan Reynolds so you can imagine. But it was well laid out, not once was I bored. Its not overly comical, not overly dramatic, and the action is fit for a Green Lantern, there's a reason it chose him, and the ring is never wrong. Another great installment to the super hero movie genre.
Added: Although, I like him better as Deadpool.
