Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1

Published: Friday 2010-12-03.

We had baby-sitters for Jenny yesterday, so I got to go to the cinema with Thea. To see the same movie, at the same time. That does not happen too often. It was time for Harry Potter again, this time it was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1, the seventh movie in the series, and the filmatization of the first part of the seventh and (so far) final book of the series.

For the first time the movie is not set at the school for young magicians. The evil powers have taken over the ministry of magic, and Harry Potter and his friends has to do what they can to stop the evil side from winning. Already in the last movie he tried to destroy the soul of he-who-shall-not-be-named, which is split into a number of relics, and must now attempt at finding the remaining ones and figuring out how to destroy them.

The movie is fairly lengthy for only having filmed the first part of the book, and it is clearly just half a movie. It does indeed not end with a To be continued sign, like part two of Matrix did, but the end comes as abruptly and the plot is still open. After over two hours of the movie it felt like not much had happened plot-wise, but still I did not think the movie was too long or bad. It did at least not suffer from the quick cuts like its predecessor did.

A good movie, but now I want to know how it ends…
