Welcome everyone to Movie-Thoughts’ first annual Turn of the Year Awards! While everyone else is making Top 10 lists for the upcoming awards season, we thought it would be more worthwhile to talk about what we feel are the most notable movies of the past year, good or bad. Read about our Best and Worst moviegoing experiences, our biggest surprises and disappointments, the most well-crafted movies, and the overall Best movies of the year.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 concludes the Potter film franchise that has lasted eight films and ten years. Thanks to its devoted worldwide fan base, the film is breaking box office records left and right. Critics are also showering the film with praise: it received a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, the highest for any film in the series.
We at Movie-Thoughts.com thought it would be interesting to talk about the franchise as a whole. Below is the conversation between Cliff Bugle (a casual fan who experienced the story chiefly through the movies) and Marisa Carpico (a long-time Potter fan who read the books and saw the movies). Be sure to get into the conversation by leaving your own comments!
Director: David Yates
Length: 2h 10m
Synopsis: We begin right where we left off from Deathly Hallows: Part 1 – Harry (Radcliffe), Hermione (Watson), and Ron (Grint) have three more horcruxes to find in order to render Voldemort (Fiennes) vulnerable. The Dark Lord, meanwhile, is organizing his forces to find Harry and repress his following, looking to ultimately kill the boy as he is all that stands in the way of everlasting rule. The Sword of Gryffindor has disappeared again and must be found in order to battle Voldemort’s final attacks and destroy the last horcruxes, but while the young wizards search Harry begins to discover all of the past events and relationships that have led him to this point. He eventually recognizes what his fate must be, and accepts it for the cause of ridding the world of its ultimate evil. In the end, the two wizard legends face off in an epic battle that will decide the fate of the wizarding world forever.
