Hype of the week: HP – TDH: Pt 1

Film: Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part I
Director: David Yates

So, finally, it’s here. The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Or, the first moment we’ve all been waiting for (?). I’m referring to this only being part one of what they’re calling the epic finale. Being one of “those people” who’ve actually read the book, I’ll agree –  it will be epic. Or as someone so eloquently put it: “shit will go down”. David Yates returns as the director, his third time now, and is of course directing part two as well. If I have to be honest, I haven’t been that impressed with Yates’ work on the fantasy saga. True, it is a very difficult task to take on these books, adapt them to the big screen with Rowling’s eye on you at all times, and still stay true to yourself and your own vision. It’s a director’s dream and nightmare basically. But the first reviews are coming in and they look promising. Hopefully, the film will not disappoint us HP-lovers, for we have been let down far too many times now. I’m attending the premiere tomorrow and will be a hard critic, watching with the eye of both a passionate cineast and a dedicated Harry Potter-fan. As for now, I think I’ll go read some more of the book.
