Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

In preparation for seeing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 , I recently purchased Part 1.   I did not see it in the theatre for no particular good reason.   I was not fond of the Half Blood Prince movie so I didn’t bother to see Part 1 of Hallows.   I loved the books and the first few movies were good.  

Hallows Part 1 seemed to think that to set the mood they had to have an initial portion filmed in the dark.  I don’t mean visible characters; I mean you may as well have turned the TV off and listened to the sound track.   I wonder how much money you can save if you just have voices without any visibility.    

This may seem to be the proverbial nit picking but why take such entertaining books and crap them up with scenes too dark to enjoy the action.   Scary music and low lighting can set the mood without just blacking out the screen.

That being said, I will probably shell out the cash to see the Part 2 just because it is the final movie or maybe I will just wait and by it used for $10 like I bought part 1.   

The following link  is to a good overview of the previous movies. Link
