We can only hope.

Hope for what. Him dying or kids crying?

They will be fine. The movie is darker than the first couple of films, so as long as the kids are not too young, I think they would enjoy it.

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

I sure don't hope kids cry.

I saw the movie on Sunday - there is lots of violence and fighting, however you have to expect that as it's the showdown of good versus evil. The kids won't have a reason to cry unless they get scared.

Petite,

Did your grandchildren see part 1? How old are they? Part 2 has a lot of death but to answer your primary question no. However, if they are young you might want to think long and hard about them seeing it, especially if they have not read the book or seen part 1.

This comment is too funny.

Thanks for the input. I think I will pass. I myself do not like dark movies. I will take them to a happier movie.

I was listening to a radio station dedicated to HP this weekend. They said there was Lots of SObbing in the audience'

If the movie is faithful to the book there are plenty of reasons for tears without Harry dying.

petite - take them to Super 8. it's a great movie. it does have a few scary moments but nothing a 7-8 year old couldn't handle.

I haven't seen it but if you want to know the gist of any movie, check moviespoilers.com

I always do this prior to watching a movie as it helps me understand what's going on...sometimes I just don't get it....

I haven't. That nonsense doesn't interest me.

I just asked my g/daughter who saw it the other night and she said "if you want to be technical, yes he does die".....She said it is pretty disturbing but a 7-8 y/o could handle it.

ETA - I think he becomes someone else

No, he doesn't become someone else. I don't want to ruin it for anybody, but you know how some people technically die, but since it's not their time, they come back? Wink

Sometimes it's good to cry. I cried when they showed who all had died...especially one in particular. :(

Yeah, I think you just ruined it. :)

Hi Red,

Nope, you are not. :)

mellie- don't you wish they would have spent a little more time on that part? I do, it seemed like that whole thing was rushed. they could have cut back the time on the train station

Melliezap1311095832.28715660 PostsRegistered 6/1/2009

I was actually surprised the movie was as short as it was. Yes, I think they could've spent more time on the "battle" and how they all died. I really, really, really dislike the ending of it. I remember reading the book and rolling my eyes at the end. I think J.K. Rowling made a mistake when she put Hermione and Ron together. I'm just laying it out there.

I didn't like how the movie did the final battle. it was a bit of a letdown I think everyone should have seen it.

the crowd cheered for the final scene, they were hoping it would be in the movie. I could see them together. Could see Harry and Ginny as well.

I also agree that the movie was too short. they should have gone all out for the last one.

I saw it and cried different scenes but that is because I have followed HP through my DD. So it was over the realization that this part of her childhood is finally over. It was a great movie. But unless you have seen the other movies I don't see the point in taking them.

There is no spoilers if you read the books how could you not know what happens...
