New Deathly Hallows Screening Reports
There are a bunch of new Deathly Hallows screening reports now online that you can read here!  Here is a spoiler-free segment of one below.

For the spoiler-averse, here’s a paragraph that doesn’t give anything away: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows does an interesting job of interspersing the dire with the day-to-day, and I believe they were able to pull this off simply by letting the characters be themselves. There were many things that it successfully brought alive from the book, although purists may not quite agree with some plot lines that were cut here or there in favor of shorter, more movie-friendly methods of story-telling. By itself it feels like a complete story, which some may worry about considering it’s only the first half of a book, and quite an enjoyable one at that, as it stays faithful to the David Yates-directed films that came before it.
