It is hard to believe it has been nearly a decade since many family herded their kids into the car and headed down to the local cinemas to see this first installment of the Harry Potter movies. The main players, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Gint), Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), and their first magical rival, Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) were all just pre-teens then, dealing with things they never dreamed of. Some were ready for the challenge, growing up with, or researching what was coming to them. Harry was the most un-prepared, yet the most powerful of them all. We saw glimpse of Harry’s miserable home life with the Dursleys. Vernon Dursley (Richard Griffiths), who is perpetually in denial about magic. His wife, Petunia (Fiona Shaw), who knows that it does exists, but would rather not deal with it, and supports Vernon fully. That leaves Dudley (Harry Melling), whom is a male version of Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. A beefy brat that is so spoiled, that if he was a carton of milk the expiration date on him would have been 322 B.C.E.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Revisited

Now that the DVD and Blu-Ray editions of the film are out we have decided to come back and take a second look at what is both one of the most exciting film of the series and sometimes the most boring of the series. This film is great but it is filled with a lot of slow spots that younger viewers are not going to be able to understand. If your watching this film with younger children you will have a lot of explaining to do. On the other hand the slowness of the film is actually needed to be able to tell the story as it unfolds. It is used to show just how evil Voldemort aka Tom Riddle (Ralph Fiennes) really is and how horrid anything associated with the Dark Lord is really a bad thing to hold on to. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 lets us see just how deep the feelings for each other really are and how it can spark jealousy over the simplest and silliest of things. This is going to be a film that makes you think about what it is that you are seeing and we get to finally find out some of the family history of Harry and Riddle. They are actually distant cousins.
