This movie is flawless. From its dark humor to absolutely wonderful cast, it is the perfect annual christmas movie. Even after seeing it well over fifty times, I still cannot stop laughing. It's only drawback is the amount of language, which is oddly placed for a family movie. But this is an absolute nitpick, as you have to watch it many times to find any problems. Thank God for 24 hours of A Christmas Story!
After walking from the theater, I had to chuckle. A little. Why? Because I swore I had just seen this movie. But then I realize that is because I watched the fifth movie the night before.
No matter how hard this "Harry" tries, with its new plot, older stars and, er, love, its just another Harry Potter movie. Hogwarts is unsafe. Harry attends anyway. Something is wrong. Harry wishes he was normal. Dumbledore warns of disaster. Ron gets "snogged". Something is wrong. Hermione cries. Harry gets a headache. Something is wrong. ZOMBEEEEEEZ. Wizard fight scene. Harry does something important. But...
Something is wrong.
What is it? Maybe it's a lack of originality, but this series is losing its luster. Hopefully, the final two movies (the seventh book is being split) will be, at the least, interesting. And maybe a twist for good measure, too. Something. ANYTHING.
