Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)

As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows. [imdb]

Nominated for 2 Oscars:

Best Art Direction

Best Visual Effects

The confusion called Harry Potter continues. To say that it's hard to follow would be unjust: because they never even bother to give you enough info to put it all together. Talk about screenplay gaps! This might make sense for those who are reading the books, but the rest of us: we got lost a couple of episodes ago.

Plot over twist over plot over twist... I hope they can glue them for the final part. Really, know, why do they make them so complicated, not to mention those silly screenplay solutions. Otherwise, the film is nicely done from a technical point of view, the Art Direction is fine, the Visual Effects are fine, and Ralph and Helena BC are both cool to watch. Hope we'll get a lot of Ralph Fiennes in the next one.

My rating for the film: 5.5/10. And I still feel like I'm being too generous.


  1. I guess it would be confusing if you haven't read Harry Potter, but I thought it was pretty good, but I don't really care for the movies too much.

  2. I enjoyed this one but it was a minor disappointment. I love the books so I get the story too. :D

  3. well, at least I'm glad to hear that the books make sense, I was a bit worried about Miss JK's reputation :)

    maybe in 20 years they'll make a 20-episode miniseries and everybody will be satisfied.

  4. What a movie! I'll be talking about this one for a long time thats for sure..gotta love it! :)
