When Bathilda Bagshot meets Hermione and Harry flies can be heard buzzing. As this is mid-winter and judging by the light snow the temperature is quite a lot below freezing no insects could be active. See more »

It's beautiful here.
It was our aunt's. We used to come here as kids. The order uses it now as a safe house. What's left of us at least.

Muggles think these keep away evil, but they're wrong.
I need to talk to the goblin.

The only credits at the beginning of the movie are the Warner Brothers logo and the title "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2." See more »
This movie could not do any better, it ended the Harry Potter series with a bang. It is a good balance from the first part of The Deathly Hallows. The first part was more of a drama, while part two was action packed left and right. This may be my favorite movie of the series, though all of them are equally amazing. I have read the books, and there are definitely major changes in the movie, but I find they fit perfectly well with the story, even if it isn't the original plot. Even for those who haven't read the books (why wouldn't you?!), it is equally enjoyable. This movie, along with the rest in the series, will be loved for years and years to come.
