Fair enough

For me, when I walked out of HP7 - I felt like I had only seen half a movie (and indeed, HP7.5 feels very much like the 2 hour action climax of Part 1). I never felt that way with any of the Lord of the Rings films. They each felt like films with storylines that reached a certain resolution by the end of the 3 hours. I felt like I was waiting a year for a new chapter, not the remainder of a chapter I was in the middle of.

None of this should be taken as a slight against 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'. As a matter of fact, I really like it a lot. It just feels like one movie to me, whereas I LotR feels like 3 distinct films - albeit ones comprising a complete story.

"All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake to find that it was vanity; But the dreamers of day are dangerous men. That they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible."
- T.E. Lawrence
