Saw it for the second time last night, and it was even better. It wasn't long at all during the camping, because I knew what happened at each "stop," and once they Apparated to "that one wood" they'd be moving on. And such. The dancing wasn't as awkward, but that was probably because I knew they weren't going to kiss. The efirst time through, I was all : they could kiss now and it would flow with the movie.
But They Didn't.
Anyway. Even better second time around.
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
I didn't think that robbed the film the purpose. I was actually really pleased with the thought that they finally took their time for such a complex book loaded with details.
And that, I feel, was a much more distinct feature of the OotP and HBP films. Of course it's a little episodic, and I can't imagine telling the story differently with only 240 minutes of time. And that's the point: Imagine they had had only 120. Come on, OotP was horrible because it just rushed from one episode to another.
I must say I think it's one of the best they made so far. I can't wait for the second part (waiting is horrible there), but I'm pleased with the outcome of the first half of the two-parter.
