Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (Includes Spoilers)

The movie version of the last Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was split into two parts, the second of which was released on 15 July, 2011. Today I saw it at the local theater, and it was phenomenal.

It began with a short recap from part one: Voldemort breaking open Dumbledore's tomb and taking the Elder Wand, one of the Deathly Hallows. The entire movie was well pace, with an even mix of action and dialogue. Some scenes were so quiet, we could hear faint music from other movies playing. Of all the Harry Potter movies, it was closest to the book. There were, of course, a few differences, but they were all overwhelmed by the brilliant-ness of the rest of the movie.

One particularly well done scene was Snape's memories, the Prince's Tale.

Young Lily and Snape
This was one of the parts I was looking forward to the most, and it was extremely well done.

During one of the final battles, it seemed Ron or Harry would kill Nagini, as both had a basilisk fang for a time. However, just as in the book, Neville beheaded Nagini.

I dressed up as Tonks.
