Chicago – Taken as one complete film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is easily the best installment of the series. By splitting J.K. Rowling’s spellbinding final book into two parts, director David Yates and screenwriter Steve Kloves had much more time to pace each sequence and develop each character to the best of their ability. The added minutes have enabled them to deliver a rousing finale to one of the greatest franchises in history.
That being said, I freely admit that my experience of growing up with Harry Potter has contributed considerably to my impassioned involvement in the subsequent film adaptations. To say the books are better than the movies would be to miss the point entirely. Literature and cinema are entirely different languages and must be judged on their own terms. The extraordinary thing about the “Potter” films is the fact that they have continued to get better »

Running Time: 1 hr 45 mins

Plot: A hotshot pilot (Reynolds) has his life turned upside down when he is chosen to join an intergalactic peace-keeping organization with the aid of a powerful green ring.
Who’S It For? Comic book fans will have a pleasant time with this one, but also, for fans of 3D done right, Green Lantern uses the technology surprisingly well.
Expectations: As a Green Lantern comic fan, I was anxious and nervous at the same time about this comic book adaptation. Reynolds had a lot to live up to in the role, but more than anything else, I was worried that the special effects would take priority over the substance.
