Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1

The best one yet. How exactly are they doing this? These films just get better and better. This one is both the most meditative and bleak, but it also has the most thrilling set-pieces. I loved the break-in at the ministry, and the animated sequence to illustrate the story of the three brothers and the deathly hallows was one of the artistic highpoints of the series. Another thing: this one was really carried by the three kids (adults now) and they more than rose to the occasion. Emma Watson, in particular, shone.

  1. Agreed, mostly. Though I found the tent dance sequence to be incredibly awkward, and most of our theater laughed at it... And there was a lot of hiking and camping.
