I SAW IT LAST NIGHT (well, this morning) AT THE MIDNIGHT SCREENING! We get it two days before you guys do. Wewt, Australia! a-hard-days-night-john-6 15 hours later, I'm still buzzing. Okay, this is going to have spoilers if you don't already know what's going to happen, so yeah.

It's amazing. They did change some stuff from the books, though, and the final battle between Harry and Voldemort wasn't nearly as epic as it should have been. It was just the two of them in the courtyard, instead of being surrounded by everyone. Harry's speech to Voldemort about Snape's loyalty and about love and about everything else would have been amazing if they'd kept it in, but they didn't. They just sort of duelled weakly, which is a shame, because that bit was awesome in the books.
Oh, and all the stuff about Ariana was taken out as well. Deathly Hallows is meant to make Dumbledore a lot more human, but instead they just sort of kept him as the same all-knowing figure that he was before. 
The Carrows weren't in it, either, which means Harry's entrance completely changed. He just steps out of a group of kids and points his wand at Snape, and then McGonagall defends Harry by duelling with Snape until he escapes.
They took out a lot of the tiny details that make Deathly Hallows the most revealing book.

Despite all that, it really was amazing. The Prince's Tale was REALLY well done, and I teared up at Snape's line "Always." My friends were pretty much bawling throughout the whole thing, though.
If they'd kept a lot closer to the books, it would been so amazing that I can't even fathom it, but it was still incredibly amazing.

I already want to go see it again and again. It was awesome.
Oh, but I really wish Molly's famous line was better. It's meant to be like "NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!", but she just sort of went "Not my daughter, you bitch." I HATED Bellatrix's death, though. She exploded into a bunch of pieces, which is bullcrap, cos her death is meant to mirror Sirius's. She's duelling, then gets hit by a red jet of light, the laughter freezes on her face, then she arcs backwards; bam, dead. She's not meant to explode...
I'm still not a fan of the whole 19 years later thing. I know she's sort of leaving it open for more books in the future, but I really think it should have ended without it.

Of course, these are all just nitpicky things. It's still amazingly amazing.
I dressed up as Hagrid for the premiere, and I had a toy baby with a scar on its head in some blankets as Baby Harry. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Oh, yeah, did I mention that it was REALLY good? Cos it was. See it, now.

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out  They leave the West behind
