I saw Harry Potter 7, Pt. 2 during the midnight release. I’ve already forgotten a lot of the details of the book by now. It’s been about 4 years since I last read the Deathly Hallows. Since then, I’ve been in college, studying and memorizing more things than I can recall right now.
The movie was fantastic nonetheless. The one scene I was looking forward to was the Snape scene. I was hoping for every detail and revelation of that scene to match the pacing of the same scene within the book. Instead, they skimmed over it. It only gave you a glimpse of Snape’s childhood and rushed into his adulthood and brushed through his ties to Lily Potter, Harry’s mom. If I hadn’t read the book, I wouldn’t have realized what Snape had gone through as he was growing up—his family life and out of his love for Lily (the one person who ever showed that she cared about him). I wouldn’t have known that he grew up to become a bitter man as a result of the bullying he had dealt with growing up. I wouldn’t have known about all the layers of pain that he had accumulated over the years. I wanted to feel the pain as Harry the character was feeling it. I wanted it to be a cathartic experience.
I cried, of course. I wasn’t sobbing like a maniac like I did when I saw Toy Story 3 or following Sirius’s death in the Order of the Phoenix however. I felt like I cried, because I already knew the scene would be traumatic. I knew it was coming as soon as Snape commented on Harry’s eyes. I heard a lot of sniffles throughout the rest of the movie. For those people, the movie did the scene justice.

Make sure the quotation marks are not italicized. You might have to retype them in there.
