This latest Harry Potter movie was the first to get me to thinking that I really am missing a lot. I could tell that there were some things in the movie that I would have understood if I had read the books. Aside from half of Chapter One of The Sorcerer's Stone, I have not read any of the Harry Potter books. No, I've only seen the movies--and most of what went on in them I've forgotten.
The movie, for me, was very flat. There weren't any high points or low points. The movie just went along. I did enjoy Delores Umbridge as the latest antagonist. She kind of reminds me of another teacher that I once had, with her smiling face which she thought covered her sadistic nature.
I was surprised to see that werewolf guy come back. I thought he had left for good.
What was the significance of that arch thingy that Sirius fell into?
Poor Cho Chang. They couldn't spare a moment for her to receive an apology?
If Richard Harris was alive and was still portraying Dumbledore, I wonder how they would have handled that scene with Voldemort. He's no Yoda.
