And so it comes to this: one determined, no-longer-a-boy-wizard versus one living incarnation of evil, facing off in a battle to the death. Meanwhile, millions of loving fans watch on, thinking, This is the culmination of all my dreams made real, while a smaller contingent of more critical spectators settle into their theater seats praying that, after ten years of set-up and a preceding film that wasn’t much more than an overextended tease, HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2 just pays off for all the hours invested. Come join our special guest, Be a Better Booktalker’s Andrea Lipinski, as she joins Cinefantastique Online’s Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons in a spirited discussion of the grand finale of the Harry Potter saga, and discover whether a mammoth budget, a dedicated director, and a talented cast lead to a worthy send-off.

  1. 1. Fred!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    2. Alan Rickman deserves an Oscar nomination for his role in DH – Part 2.

  2. 1. Fred has admittedly flown under my radar (pun unintended). Focusing too much on Drago, I guess.

    2. Rickman and a whole host of other actors here, but I’m suspecting the Oscars will not reciprocate. At least the producers redeem themselves for keeping Snapes off-stage for a good portion of the time.

  3. Speaking of Draco Malfoy, seeing Draco and his parents walk away the way they did really made me think of them as those damn Vichy French, puppets for the Third Reich as long as they kept their power. After D-Day, they were all about the Allies. Damn opportunists.

    Anyway, I missed that connection when I read the novel.
