  • I wasn’t the world’s biggest “Deathly Hallows” fan, but the movies could be great. It’s easily the most cinematic of the books, isn’t it?

  • And “The Losers” does look terrible.

  • I’m so glad they’re splitting ‘Deathly Hallows’ into two films. I don’t want the Potter fun to end.

  • I originally wasn’t, but after seeing how much was cut from “Half-Blood Prince” I’ve changed my mind. Even if it is just a money grab (which it is).

  • Kelly

    Quote’s from The Usual Suspects. and I can’t wait to get my soul crushed by another Harry Potter movie!

    That Wikus video was great, it made my day or more correctly night.
