Harry Potter trailers never cease to amaze me.
I. AM. SO. EXCITED.
Excited is not even the right word to describe my feelings right now.
The Deathly Hallows is going to be epic.
The music, the action, the dialogue. Everything is perfect in this trailer.
My favorite scene? At 1:33:
Voldemort-"Why do you live?"
Harry-"Because I have something worth living for." (<<----Very epic line, is it not?)
And..umm...did anyone else start tearing up when watching this trailer, or was it just me? As much as I am excited to see this movie, I don't feel like seeing it because it's the end of my favorite series ever, though, of course I'm going to go because I need to see the end. Er...
The story is realistic fiction, though it's realistic in a rather magical way (if that makes any sense), and I think that 's why I love it as much as I do now. The last 50 pages...wow. The ending made me catch my breath. It's splendid, and I truly admire Mary E. Pearson for tying up the story that way. I thoroughly enjoyed The Miles Between, and I can't recommend this book enough. It's unforgettable, and I know I'll have a hard time giving it back to my library. ;)
Anyway, on to the important stuff:
Soo, I got the blog award from Elle (thank you so much again for my first award!), but I didn't give it to anyone. I just wanted to say that every blog I read is excellent, but I just wanted to make sure to give to people I know haven't received this yet..so, I hereby give the Your Blog is Over the Top to:
Rachel: Ummm, maybe it's because I myself can't bake to save my life, so I like people who can. I love her recipes, and basically anything else she has to say! Plus, I enjoy her English style. Though she's been gone for several months, she returned, saying that she'll be back for real in a couple of weeks, so I'm anxiously waiting for that to happen. :D
Priya: A fellow Harry Potter obsessee (who by the way just posted the new thrilling Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I teaser trailer yesterday), who I'm starting to get to know. Her reviews are short, and sweet, she's usually the first one to post up awesome trailers. She can also write poetry, and well, basically, her blog is fun to read in general. :)
So yeah, that's it. Hope you like the award, guys. :) Have a nice rest of the week, everyone. And for a few of us who still have a couple weeks of school to go, hang in there. We can make it. :D
So there I was, wondering about the fate of the film, and hoping it wasn't shelved or forgotten, then two days ago, on Steph Su Reads, there was an interview with Wendelin Van Draanen, the author of the book, with a link to her blog. Now, I haven't been on her blog since, um, I think last September, so I just decided to check it out, and oh, guess what? This appeared:
That's right, the theatrical poster for the movie! Ahh, everything is so perfect about it! The tree, the horizon, the "You never forget your first love" caption (which is a little dramatic, but hey, it's a film made in Hollywood :D), Bryce and Julie, and Rob Reiner, who directed the Princess Bride, helmed this project, so it shouldn't be too wrong-He's great at adapting books to films! Well, if you've been reading this blog for a while, you know when I get excited, I get really...ecstatic! Really, really ecstatic. So I guess you can tell that for the rest of the evening, I was in my happy place. :D
Then yesterday evening, GreenBeanTeenQueen, revealed the theatrical trailer-
-sooo...that caused quite an eruption in my house. Of course I had to show it to everyone in my family! The schools, the homes, the trees, they were part of my town, and the cast and crew were here! I am so beyond excited for this movie. The cast looks great, especially Callan McAullife who's playing Bryce. I mean, he's playing the main character, and judging from the few scenes they have here, he's going to be excellent. :) The whole film looks great, the spirit of the story is there it seems, I get why the screenwriters decided to set the story in the 50's (I totally agree with them too), so I'm crossing my fingers hoping for it to be wonderful! And I hope it is a success. Wendelin Van Draanen and her story deserves it...and the cast and crew deserves it I guess, but she is the one who started it all.
*Sigh* Now I wish I visited the sets when they were here! (If they didn't allow me, I would've sneaked in. Just kidding of course, um, I think. :P)
