ok, i was expecting it to be 2hours, but it was damn near 3hours long.
and it felt like pirates 2-3, where as the other harry potter movies had definitive endings, this felt like the cut one long movie in half into two, your just left like okay, i need the next movie for resolution, which is okay i supposed considering the next one is the last of the books, but, still very annoying.
and i love luna. lol

I am much, much more excited for this movie than the crap the are trying to pass off as "GI JOE".
The reason the Potter movies do so well...they are exactly like the books. HASBRO, you should make a mental note of that for future reference.

Still seeing this with a friend this weekend...but couldn't wait and saw it tonight.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS, so read further at your own risk:
Very subtle. Balanced. The younger actors have grown into their roles. Daniel's just about caught up with Rupert and Emma who have always out-acted him. He still struggles in the dramatic moments, though. Tom Felton got to give Draco some depth. Jim Broadbent was superb. The changes made adapting the book into the film were woven well. I'm a Lunatic so of course I was delighted any time she had a moment. Michael Gambon at last got to BE Dumbledore and this was his shining moment in the series. Good for him. Alan Rickman again shows what an exceptional actor can do with just a few scenes and lines (I hope he gets an Academy Award one day); his characterization and delivery were flawless as ever. Seeing more of Maggie Smith was a treat, also. Hagrid was the one who got significantly edited this time. Ralph Fiennes' son as the young Tom Riddle was strikingly sinister...he actually gave me chills. I was VERY impressed with his performance in his one scene. I wonder what the future holds for him.
My only complaint is the last scene should have included an explanation of the "Half-Blood Prince." All it would have taken was one or two lines of Hermione saying she'd done some research on it and found out what it meant. That felt unfinished to me.
I will predict many fans of the book will not like the changes to the story's climax, but I thought it was executed with grace. It could have been done very over-the-top but the way it was filmed and the changes made were effectively poignant.
I hope it outdoes Revenge of the Fallen. Class should, though it often doesn't, outsell trash.

It was a good movie, but was there really a need to compare it to Revenge of The Fallen?
I was really into the points you made, til you threw in that last jab.
This movie was not as good as the previous ones, and for the length, it went by pretty quick.
It starts off pretty good, but the last half felt sort of rushed, like it was missing a big chunk of stuff.
It was pretty coherent, but stuff like the end felt off.
Someone pretty big dies, and there they all are, not really looking sad at all.
It didn't help that there was some lady cussing at the screen every five minutes...
"NO WHERE IS THE FUNERAL??!!"
"WHY THE F ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THAT? HE JUST DIED??!!"
"THEY REALLY F'ed THIS ONE UP BIG TIME"
"I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY RUINED THE MOVIES WITH THIS CRAP!!"
and then the credits start....it lists the directors name...
"THEY SHOULD NEVER LET *directors name* EVER TOUCH A MOVIE AGAIN!!"
"HOW DARE THEY CALL THIS HARRY POTTER???!!!"
"WHY DON'T THEY EXPLAIN THE LOCKET? THERE'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A NOTE IN THERE!!!!"
Man, that lady was loud....
but funny as hell.
So, I have the books, just never got around to reading them. I have thus far been a fan of the films, and this one really didn't seem as strong as the previous in this series.
I'm not saying it is bad, it just didn't feel as epic as the others. And the last half felt rushed to me.
The wife felt the same way.
Still worth seeing, as it has all the stuff you can expect in a Harry Potter movie, and it doesn't dissapoint.
So, what was supposed to be in the locket?
The screaming lady had me wondering. I know what it was supposed to be, and why they went there to get it, but the lady going off on the importance of locket has me wondering...
Also, why does Snape call himself the Half Blood Prince? You would think it being the name of the movie, they would have tried to explain this more, but then again, I never read anything past the first book, so maybe it's like that in the book as well.
I thought it had a Worst Witch feel to it as well, and I loved that movie growing up. I saw it and said, "HEY THE GRAND WIZARD IS THE DUDE FROM LEGEND!!!", and we all know how awesome Tim Curry is. Plus, his song was awesome!
If you haven't seen that movie, it is about a girl who goes to a school for witches, and features Fairuza Balk, who I had been in love with since I first saw that movie.
I was so happy to see her in The Craft, even though that movie was not that good.
Anyway, I can see the Worst Witch and other similar comparisons, but the Harry Potter series has taken from those ideas and stories, and improved upon it, which is why it is so popular and succesful.

I don't care about it in the least. Saw the first one and thought it was retarded so didn't see the point in wasting my time with the others. I have no interest in the children's books either.

Saw the flick last night, and it was pretty mind-blowing. A very sad ending, as those who've read the book are aware. As much as I want to see the Deathly Hallows, I am torn... they're carving it into two movies which is good for content, but the near-year between the two movies will be pretty excruciating.
