For me it would have to be the best movie. I love to read, but so far have not really had any ‘omg!’ moments with any. Movies, however, I love and there were some that really made me chuffed.
Number One would have to be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2. As a die hard fan of the HP movies, and books, my vote would definitely go there. I thought it was well done and hit all the major points with appropriate gravity and demeanor. The special effects were fantastic as usual.
The rest are in no particular order but I want to mention them anyway.
X-Men: The First Class. I was dubious about this at first, but it really came out well, imo.
Thor – Arguably almost as much a chick flick for the eye candy (he was a babe and a half) as an action pic. Still, I really liked the story and looking forward to seeing him again in the Avengers.
Captain America – I thought this was nicely done overall and I really enjoyed the story and the action. It was a little cheesy at times, but even that was appropriate for the time period the story takes place in. I like that they paid homage to that.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon – I love this series and this movie didn’t disappoint me. There were a few things though that I think they dropped the ball on big time. The parents, who I think everyone really enjoys seeing because of the comic relief, are thrown in there with no real purpose and then just cast off with a really flimsy, lame reason. Sam seems to have gone to school, but with no clear idea what he actually graduated in? I think in one interview he said he majored in some kind of clothing marketing? Really? Still, the graphics and action never let up and saved it from the few odd things.
There are some I haven’t yet seen or are still coming out that I’m looking forward to, but these come to mind right now.
Ok, yes I love the Harry Potter books and movies. I watch them whenever they are on. However, now that the final book and the final movie have played out, I wasn’t happy with how it all ended. The movie went along with the book more or less, but for a sequel I would pick up where the books left off.
In my opinion JK Rowling left way too many loose ends. You get people invested and caring about your characters then give them no closure with them? I honestly think she was sitting there saying, ‘I can’t wait to finish this damn series. Let’s just wrap this up and screw it, they’ll buy it anyway.”
First, the movie would start at that last fight but from different perspectives. I want to see more of what happened to the others. From there it would go into more detail of all the characters. We would get to attend the funeral of Fred (George? no I think Fred.. anyway…).
After spending all that time talking about OWLS and NEWTS and jobs, we would find out what jobs they each finally went with. Harry is probably an Auror. Just because Voldemort is gone doesn’t mean there aren’t bad guys and deatheaters still out there on the loose. There are tons that ran after V. died I’m sure. Hermoine never could make up here mind. What did she end up doing? If she didn’t become a Professor, it’s a shame. She’d be great at it. Personally, I always had it in my mind that Harry would eventually become Headmaster at Hogwart’s after Minerva died or retired.
What happened with Neville and Luna? Where are their kids? Neville went to work as a Hogwarts professor but I’d love to hear more about that.
What is Draco doing now? Is he still an odious git or did he actually learn something?
What’s Ron doing? Let’s see the weddings!
What about Remus and Tonk’s son? How is he doing? What sort of mix of mom and dad did he become?
We’d see adventures of them post-Voldemort. Kids, jobs, I’m sure their lives are still pretty dangerous and interesting.
It would all end in a similar way that the movie did. With them all sending their kids off to school on platform 9 3/4.
How about you guys? What would be your sequels?
