Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 

When: Fri., Nov. 19 2010

Area Theaters—Remember just a few years ago when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out in book form, and there was one last, glorious midnight release party where people well into their 40s dressed in Hogwarts outfits, and you had to go home and read the book that night so your pleasure wouldn't be spoiled by people on the Internet the next day? Prepare to relive the next-to-last major Harry Potter event as the world's most favoritest boy wizard heads to film for his final battle against the Dark Lord Voldemort ... or Part 1 of his final battle, anyway.

Yes, it's been nine years since the film version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, a near-decade that saw Alfonso Cuarn do the best film with Prisoner of Azkaban, Daniel Radcliffe traumatize and confuse younger fans who saw him on stage in Equus, and approximately 4 billion pervy Emma Watson fan sites pop up on the Web. Can this two-part film adaptation successfully tie up all the loose ends that previous adaptations had to cut for time? Does screenwriter Steve Kloves, who adapted all the books except Order of the Phoenix, ever wish that more people would notice his name and Netflix his fine films Flesh and Bone and The Fabulous Baker Boys? Oh yeah, and will Harry finally beat Voldemort? Well, there's one film to go, so not yet, and if you read the book, you know the answer anyway. In IMAX (but not 3-D—Warners apparently couldn't get a good conversion, though Part 2 will be 3-D, which is just confusing). Don't forget there's a new IMAX theater at the Crossroads 20 in Cary. —Zack Smith
