Anybody see it? I was surprised they changed the wandrepair at the end. And i would have liked the "all was well" quote at the end. But enjoyable and true to the spirit/major events of the book.

The movie doesn't have the quote? Damn. After reading the book I was imagining it would be as famous as Rhett Butler's parting shot.

Not the closing quote. Another quote I missed was when Aberforth talks to Harry about his job. He does say the thing about whether it is a nice/easy job, but leaves out the part about whether an unqualified wizard could do it.

They reordered some things and had different characters say them for budget/time/sequencing reasons. Something seemingly changed for no reason was what Harry did with the elder wand.

Did you see it in 3D or 2D? Is the 3D worth the buckage?

I saw it in 3D. It was worth it. The action scenes and school were really cool to see in 3D. That said, I was just paying for myself in 3D not a whole family. It would have been ok in 2D, but was better enough in 3D to be worth it to me.

Saw it in iMAX 3D. I personally didn't see much about the 3D that made me think that it would have been any less impressive in 2D. I really, really enjoyed the movie. I haven't read any of the books. So I can't say anything for authenticity. The only part I didn't care for was the very very very end. I won't spoil anything other than to say that everything after the "19 years later" screen I could have done without. I realize that it is in the book and is a big part of wrapping things up. But in the movie, it felt cheesy and the makeup wasn't that great. Especially Jenny's.

But overall, loved the movie. I can't wait to see it again (in 2D this time).

I saw the 3d version of the movie...But only got 3D effects on 3-4 places...There's not much light and color in the movie and IMHO it is not worth to watch it in the 3D version So better if you avoid 3D version , It'll save you from head ache and can save some money too...In all movie was good but they cut some major sections from the novel which really disappoint you..So you'd not read the novel, you'll enjoy the movie more...

Gregg,
Authenticity was fair as it always was. Some things were good some things were different.

The 19 years later made me smile. It was a happy ending and it was nice seeing their families in screen. I've read the books a lot of times. Of course, I was disappointed they left off the last line so omitting the whole part would have been a bit much.

Yeah the 19 years later was very good. Made me think about the first movie and seeing the three for the first time as 11 year olds.

Some of the deviations from the book are acceptable and even good but I hope they make a closer-to-the-book version in the future.

Just saw it again in 2D with surround sound. The 3D was nicer but voldemort in surround sound was amazing!
