A review ofHarry PotterAnd the Deathly Hallows (pt2)
… the (supposed) final installment of the highest grossing film franchise of all time. And if you believe that, I’ve got a bridge for sale just for you … on sale, even! Not to belittle the significance of this film, but they’re never going to be done - so don’t worry Harry Potter fans. There are already rumors of another story already in the works, this time starring Harry’s son Albus. And even if this is just a rumor, you can be sure of a Harry Potter remake in 15-20 years.... not that it would even be unwarranted. The first two Harry Potters were incompetently directed. In hindsight its clear that the film industry didn’t know what they had until Azkaban. They treated it like any other pop-kid’s-story-turned-film. It wasn’t until after that when they realized this was the real-deal. Honestly I would like them to remake the series without the drastic shift between the first two films and the rest of them - they simply don’t seem to fit together. Anyway...
The popularity of this film shocked even me, as I found myself staring at a sold-out screen when buying my tickets for opening-night IMAX theater only minutes after the tickets went on sale. Thus, to my incredible sadness, I was not able to get a sneak-peek at the film. But that might change....
My group’s dedication to film hasn’t gone unnoticed by the IMAX theater staff, and as we waited in line to see Dealthly Hallows part2, six days late, but still arriving three hours before the film was to start, the manager came over and spoke with us, telling us how surprised she was to not find us in line for that first showing! We told her what happened, and she gave us her business card. At the very least, I think we now have an “in” to get Tickets for all future IMAX films before they go on sale, thereby allowing your fennec friend to henceforth always see IMAX sneak-preview... but better still... she hinted that we might be able to get into the employees-only advance-pre-screening, typically a full 5 hours before the sneak preview.
