Alright, this is all semantics. Then I would say that the first half of the film is better than the last half. Feel free to disagree.First of all I consider them the same film considering that it was shot as one.
Oh, I totally get that. I'm not saying that the pacing of part 1 is better because it's slower. It's better because it adds to the atmosphere of the film in a way that part 2 doesn't. I do agree that part 2 likewise benefits from being fast-paced in general, but like I said it felt more uneven to me. There were especially some scenes that felt rushed and lacked pay-off. This is a directorial mistake. Despite the fact that they are two completely different films, it cannot be ignored that I find the direction of part 1 to be stronger.I don't know that I would agree and this is why: they're two very different things, just like the book. One part is more solemn, more sublime and about the psychology of its characters and one part is the climax.
That would be like throwing someone who can't swim into the ocean. What does she know about framing, pacing, directing actors etc? Directing is a skill like any other.I'd honestly like to see J.K Rowling attempt to direct. That way we know that we'd be seeing the movie the way that she wanted it to be seen.
While the characters are not as rounded as in the books, I don't think it's too bad compared to your average CGI heavy blockbuster. As fans we tend to be more critical of things because we care about the universe and details more deeply than general audiences. Stepping out of that bubble, I find that the HP series as a whole has an emotional truthfulness to it that many other big fantasy or action blockbusters lack.lolololololololololololololololololol every steve kloves hater at that harry/hermione stuff is now shitting themselves hahaha I LOVE IT
I don't think people hate Kloves for his obvious Harry/Hermione bias, but more for his pathetic, horribly simplified rendering of the characters. Of course, simple minds like simple things, so a lot of people enjoy the pigeon-hole way in which Kloves rendered the characters (Ron was 100% comic relief, Hermione was 100% super-girl). They were completely caricatures, and while the aforementioned simple minds might lap that up, I think a lot of people wanted more rounded characters.
