You have to read the books first anyway.

All of the reviews problems and praises so far suggest all the feeling that I had about the book. So at least its not a bad adaptation..

Pretty much what i was thinking.

Theres also the problem of artificially splitting a book in two hence the second part probably being the faster paced film.

It's going to be hard for part to have any breathing space if all the camping and stuff is in this one, all action in he last one, fitting for a summer film but at least it will have the battles that they missed out on in the last film.

Booked my tickets anyway. Still hoping to get premiere tickets for Dublin. Only stars will be Luna and Seamus with possibly brendan gleeson .

One thing about all the HP films - if authors deigned to be involved in the screen adaptation process then book-film features would be a lot better for it.

Whatever else you think about JKR her close collaboration with the producers and directors of the movies have guaranteed that all of them are pretty much well cast and make sense where they do have to diverge from the original plotlines (mostly in editing out, which by and large she's not so good at as a writer, so the films I think are better moulded than the books very often)
