Tea with AK71: Harry Potter at Bugis.

Friday, November 19, 2010

Day 3 of my vacation. I sent my car in for maintenance and took a bus to watch "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" at Bugis. I was somewhat apprehensive because I have read some not so good reviews about the movie but I was convinced by a friend that I should watch it for myself to form my own opinion. Being a fan of Harry Potter, it didn't take too much effort to persuade me.

So? I think it is quite good but the pace could have been faster and there should have been more effort to educate viewers on certain background information. Even if someone had watched all the first six instalments, without having read the books, he could have been quite lost in certain parts of the movie. Personally, I read all the books a long time ago and I had to try quite hard to remember certain bits myself. Anyway, I guess I would have to wait for Part 2 now. In the meantime, I might read the books again.
