On Friday afternoon, the saga came to an end for me. I ADORED these books and the movies. The ending for me was bittersweet - the movie was magical, but sad.
I LOVED Professor McGonagall - she was awesome!
I loved the little moments between all the action and danger
(Side note: Isn't this look of Hermoine's also used in the third movie - the same sweatshirt)
I loved all the special effect - the crumbling walls - the stone statues - the magic over the castle
A GREAT final battle - that made me want to cry and cheer at the same time
I loved watching Neville in his big moments
Overall - MAGICAL - the perfect ending. I can't wait to see it again (and to show it at my library)
My husband and I were talking later in the day about our favorite books from the series. There were parts of the books that never made it to the screen and parts of the movies that showed things different (sometimes better) than the books.
Thoughts on how the books/movies differed from each other? Which one are your favorites??
