Lol My husbands favorite part was the Hermione bit as well.
I absolutely enjoyed it. Saw it in 3d and then in IMAX when in Washington DC. By the way, if you are in the DC area, at the Udvar center they have two costumes from the movie on display there , one being Nevile's final battle attire, the other a Gryffindor house robe get up, not sure who's it was.
I also agree with the above posters part "not" working for me. Some of it did, but some of it it looked as if NOTHING really was done. Not enough anyway, needed just a little more.
I missed a few parts from the book, but I think its just because I spent end of May and part of June reading through books 1-7 in order. So the book was very fresh in my mind. Seems they took out a few things to keep the good guys extra squeeky clean for the kiddies.
