As for the next two movies, I've just decided that it's really smart to split them into two. Put all the phail camping and angst stuff into one and then put the hogs head stuff on into the other. Pray to god the movie theatre has a power outage before the epilogue and BAM, a great last film for an amazing series. <3
Oh, nonsense! The epilogue gave me such closure, and I loved seeing little Harry and Co.! /sarcasm
I was able to forgive them for taking out Winky in GoF (although they removed that entire plot line, which really ticked me off. >.> It took away the "Who dunnit?" element.), but if they take out Aberforth and/or Xenophilius, I'm going to be peeved.

I only kinda sorta liked the HBP movie. It was definitely a lot darker than I expected it to be, but mostly I didn't feel like the plot went as smoothely as it did in the book. I would've loved more of Voldy's back story, IMO, and Snape too, of course. <3
What did disappoint was, like goten said, the lack of utter chaos at the end. I read somewhere that the director didn't want to make it repetitive, because of the Battle of Hogwarts in DH, but it would've satisfied me way more.
The acting was really good, especially from Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter. I love that dude so frickin much. <3 Ginny was definitely more annoying than I remember her being; I liked her when she was pint-sized, not ultra Mary Sue.
Oh, and the Inferi thing? I almost screamed. I was terrified. xD
I thought it was really good - especially compared to OoTP. Most of the stuff was there, just tweaked, I guess. It portrayed the main idea, but missed the details. So it was alright - except right at the beginning with Harry and the waitress I facepalmed thinking we were going to watch a fanfic instead of HBP. So OOC. >.<
I HATED what they did with Lupin and Tonks. I would have been happier with them cutting them out completely. And when everyone was watching the Burrow burn did they forget about Aguamenti?!
With the Inferi arm thing I could hear everyone around me whispering "It's gonna grab Harry" and then everyone still jumped. I was holding one of the light up wands they sell at Party City and stabbed the girl next to me by accident.
Tom Felton was awesome. (I've missed the Foamy smiley! I feel like I never use him anymore. ) He acted well, was hot, and made me cry.
The thing that bothered me about the movie was the fact that there wasn't any mystery. The audience and the characters both knew all about Draco, the Vanishing Cabinets, who was in love with who, etc. There wasn't any surprise or too much suspense at the end.
And wft was up wtih Dumbledore not knowing about the Horcruxes? Why would he still have the diary if he didn't suspect it was a Horcrux? More memories would be cool too. Listening to Slughorn talk about that stupid hourglass instead of learning about the Gaunts was annoying.
I agree with Shay's first post on this page about the split and the Nerdfighters. The first part can be mediocre like the rest of the movies, but part two has to be epic. I know they won't, but I wish that it would be split after Gringotts so that part two will just be the Battle at Hogwarts.
When I was watching John Green talking about nerds I was totally jumping in my seat agreeing with him. I was like "Yeah that's what I do!" and got really excited. lol
EDIT: Sorry for the long post.....I tried to edit myself and failed obviously.
