How do you successfully wrap up an epic saga in just a few short hours of screen time? Well, in some cases, you don’t – at least not completely. Harry Potter, the epic fantasy saga with a massive fan base, spent 7 books following the stories of Harry, Hermione, and Ron and their battle against He-who-shall-not-be-named. The movies numbered one more, with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows being split into two films. So with the knowledge that not ALL of the detail from the final book could be crammed into these two films, we must simply ask – how’d they do? Honestly, they did OK.
BEWARE: This review is chock-full of spoilers. If you’ve read the books then you’re going to be OK, but if you haven’t and still want to be surprised by the movie, you should probably move along.
You know who we don’t like? Harry Potter. Everyone loves to root for the underdog and his lovable band of misfits, but let’s face facts. He’s captain of the perennially victorious Quidditch team, he defeats He Who Shall Not Be Named and his minions at the end of every school year like clockwork, and he’s dating his best friend’s little sister AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT. Enough is enough. Someone needs to put this guy in his place
With that in mind, and with the cinematic conclusion of Harry Potter premiering tonight at midnight, we here at NNAR would like to present the first entry in a new feature we call Team Up. Team Up will showcase our collaborative efforts, like this song, written by a friend of the site, Ian. Ladies and gentlemen, your new summer anthem, “Death Eater”.
