At last! These past couple of months I have literally been in another world. I’m writing a fantasy novel that takes place in another world and I was really (too much) into it. In November I took part in a writing challenge called NaNoWriMo and wrote a novel of 50.000 words and in December I have been finishing the last chapters of that novel. It’s been a great experience but I have to apologize to everybody around me as I know that I have not been the most easiest person to live with lately. Kind of zombie-like:)

Well, tonight I finally made time to go and see part one of the Harry Potter finale. Me and my brother went together and we had fun even though everything went wrong that could possibly go wrong e.g. due to our lateness we got the last two tickets and had to sit in the front row.  The movie was overall good and did the book justice. There wasn’t really much that happened in this part though, it’s main purpose is to build up excitement. For me the cast did great and I was happy to see Bill Nighy join the group as the minister of magic. I also really loved watching the love story develop.

The downside in my opinion was Daniel Radcliffe’s performance. I’ve never really thought he was believable in his role as the main character. In each film there is at least one awkward moment, i think it’s connected with the fact that he has to cry so often in the films. Another thing that I missed in this movie was the music, the sound effects were great and I know that there are ‘dark times’ but I missed the jingles and the theme song playing over and over during the movie. I’ll make it up to me by listening to it now:)

Nevertheless the movie left me wanting more so it gets 4,5 stars. I can’t wait until July to see the last part! Until then I just have to listen to the band Ministry of magic. Here is a link to my favorite song with them – Accio love
