Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Quiet until now I thought that this (last) installment of the franchise should break my silence. I chose to embed this picture as I truly feel that this is finally the character driven episode lot that bridges the teenager barrier to an adult accessible story with good acting, dramatic story and memorable cinematic moments. Don't get me wrong I have enjoyed all of Potter movies but felt that with each passing edition there was a improvement in the value added qualities to both film making and overall appeal. With each the stories grew darker and more likable. I feel the series really took off after bringing Peter Yates in to direct. Peter took a monumental step away from a meager TV career and this gamble will pay off as this may have launched him into movie legend, as this picture may in the end hold the all time gross title.

In my opinion any great movie needs to have one or more memorable scenes. Although all of the Harry Potter movies had the high tech/special effects moments, it wasn't until the later movies that we could expect epic wizard battles and meaningful scenes of dialogue that will withstand the test of time.

So if you haven't watch any of the Potter films yet, I suggest you start from the beginning and experience the evolution of great film.
