It was in 3-D and altho interesting, I didn't feel it was necessary to enjoy it so you really don't need IMAX or 3-D.

    I've never been a huge Harry Potter fan. Have enjoyed all the movies but just not that into them. But I must say, that this movie did an excellent job of tying up all the storylines. I tend to forget what all went on in previous films (in sequence) but this was executed wonderfully. Even forgetful-me was able to put all the pieces together. I'm glad it's the final movie because those kids sure did grow up!!
    I've seen it in 2D, 3D in our local theater, and 3D at Graumann's Chinese in Hollywood today. I could not believe what a difference there was in the 3D between the two theaters. I didn't think the 3D was that great at our local theater, but the experience at Graumann's was nothing short of amazing. I plan to see it in IMAX and a D-Box theater later this week.

    Glad you agree that this film did a great job of tying up story lines. I loved every minute of it. Actually for me, that's been over 350 minutes so far. LOL.

    Saw it in 2D today with the family. We all loved it. I cried my eyes out a couple of times. *sniff*
    Can't believe it's all over....

    I saw it in 3-D but would have enjoyed it just as much in 2-D. I don't think this is spoiling anything, just my opinion, but I get bored when there are endless fighting/explosion scenes and the really poignant human interaction/responses are glossed over or not even portrayed. I would love to see a re-mixed version with more of the latter scenes which must have been shot, but ended up on the cutting room floor.

    I deliberately chose not to see it in 3D. We saw Pirates in 3D and honestly felt like the 3D was gratuitous and added nothing to the overall enjoyment of the story. You could totally see the parts of HP that were put in specifically for 3D. Sometimes I feel like it just takes away from what they could have done with the scene without the 3D needing to be added.

    Plus the entire 3D thing seems to give me a headache. I just wanted to enjoy the story.

    Yes, yes and more yes to Gutmutter's post. It was the shortest of the HP movies; they could have put in some more of those type scenes and made it a bit longer. Though I didn't mind the battle scenes myself and didn't think they went on too long.

    I dislike 3D and purposefully chose to see it in 2D.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    We saw it Friday afternoon in IMAX 3D and as others have said, the 3D wasn't that impressive but being completely surrounded by the film was! I was a little nostalgic sitting there, sad at the fact that I'll never feel the anticipation of watching the latest HP movie again, so I tried to soak up and remember all of my emotions as I was watching it that first time. They did a wonderful job with it and what a way to wrap up the series. I'll have to see it at least one more time before it leaves, I think. I'm hoping it'll still be in the theaters in 4 weeks, so I can watch it while the kids are in school!

    Re: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    Someone remind me how to do spoiler tags please? I tried and my test didn't work:

    Click to see Spoiler:
    TEST SPOILER


    What am I doing wrong? I wanna share my HP experience ...

    Okay, I did the exact same thing yesterday and it didn't work. Here goes some, I'll post again when I remember more:

    Click to see Spoiler:
    I did not like the lack of build up in Molly Weasley taking out Bellatrix. She should have been highlighted as she was in the book.

    I also didn't like how they gave Ron and Hermione more time with the snake than Neville. The whole cast should have seen him take out Nagini as they did in the book. It's one of the things I was waiting for ... I LOVE NEVILLE!

    I loved when Prof McG gave the go ahead to destroy the castle, and suggested asking Seamus for help since he has the most experience in blowing things up.

    I cried my eyes out over Snape's death. I also cried over something else I can't remember.

    I got chills when Professor McGonagil (sp) took over the castle and called out the knights to defend the school.

    I didn't care for how they had Draco choose the other side before Harry revealed himself.

    I didn't care for the 2 second wrap up, although it did seem like the book did it as well so I can't complain as much.

    More later as I remember things ...

    I don't think you have to worry about HP leaving the theaters anytime soon, probably will still be running through Labor Day.
