I went to see Deathly Hallows today and was pleasantly surprised. In all truth, I had not expected the movie to be as enjoyable as it was. Perhaps I should feel guilty for feeling that way, as my only reason for wanting to see it in the first place rested upon the knowledge that Sirius Black made an appearance. Now, I understand a few of the characters a lot more than I did in the previous movies and have to say, each are special in their own way, I just didn't see it before. I'll admit my main focus had always been Gary Oldman as Harry's godfather and even though he remains my favourite character, I found a small connection with a few others, Severus being near the top of that list. It's a shame it took until the last movie, the final straw, to see who he really was inside.

Another thing I had not expected whilst watching the final Harry Potter movie were the tears escaping my eyes at almost every death, every death of every good witch or wizard, the one's we know all about. Those moments, I just couldn't control my emotions and the scenes themselves didn't help in the slightest. I found myself trying too hard to hide the sadness as some of the characters we've grown quite close to over the years met their match. Aside from the tormenting sadness that lingered around almost every doorway, the movie was a delight to watch and I'm thankful to say I chose to watch it. I had stopped watching them after Sirius passed in Order Of The Phoenix, but the small detail that he'd return in the end had my eyes sparkling. If it were not for his character, I don't believe I would have wanted to see it at all, I'd have missed an amazing ending to a brilliant story.
