I was never truly a big fan of this franchise but I am always fascinated to watch each movie. I have never even read the books so I rely solely on IMDB, Wikipedia and the movies itself of course.

I have seen the part one of the Deathly Hallows last year but I fell asleep halfway thru the movie. For some reason, I just slept and woke up during the credits. A big epic fail for me, I know.

This time though, Harry Potter’s final film left a big impression on me that I am now considering on finally reading the books! This finale was perfectly created to leave something for its fans that would truly stay with them forever.

Harry, Ron and Hermionie were all so grown up here that you feel so attached to them watching them grow over the years that you feel like crying when the end credits started rolling.

The visuals are exemplary, the score – we all know how uniquely good it was and of course, the actors are simply superb.

This film though gave a very special homage to Severus Snape who had been one of the villains of this movie series from the start but his character was the perfect example of true redemption! His scenes really made me cry.

The magic, spells, the side characters all made this film a worthwhile film to really enjoy! And ofcourse the ending of Harry’s story will always live on as this franchise come to its end, it just gained a new fan in me.

Review: Clash Of The Titans (2010)

This movie as I found out prior to watching it is a remake of the 1981 film of the same title. I’m not that thrilled to watch it. I guess I’m just interested with all the effects and see Sam Worthington – his follow up film after Avatar which was shown last year and became the top grossing film in history.

I actually enjoyed the film though I’m not really jumping off my seat. The visuals are ok –nothing spectacular. There’s nothing that’s exciting about it and nothing to rave about. It sure sound borderline boring but it’s okay. The film ran got 2 hours and you’d actually enjoy the visuals and it’s pacing. Watching it is like going to the grocery store with the exact list of what you’d be buying. You’d even think that Sam Worthington who played the son of Zeus, Perseus actually looked like Jake (his character from Avatar)- I mean with the same hair and same demeanor. It’s like he did the film while making Avatar.
