I was hesitant about THE DEATHLY HALLOWS at first. I was excited, yes, but reserved. David Yates kind of let me down with THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE (my second least favorite movie of the series ahead of CHAMBER OF SECRETS) after liking THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX (my second favorite up until now right behind PRISONER OF AZKABAN) so much.
