Iron Lady Teaser Trailer and Harry Potter Reviews

First, here is the teaser trailer for Best Actress contender Meryl Streep's latest, The Iron Lady. Unfortunately I haven't been able to embed it, so here is a link for The Huffington Post. On a personal note, I'm not sure yet how I feel. This scene doesn't mean it's going to be bad, but it doesn't sell it either:

Also, after months, hell years, of anticipation it looks like the final part of the Harry Potter saga is a hit! For us Potter maniacs this is wonderful news. Here are some of the reviews so far:

Todd McCarthy from The Hollywood Reporter:

"It ends well. After eight films in 10 years and a cumulative global box-office take of more than $6.3 billion, the most successful franchise in the history of movies comes to an obligatory — and quite satisfying — conclusion in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Fully justifying the decision, once thought purely mercenary, of splitting J.K. Rowling’s final book into two parts, this is an exciting and, to put it mildly, massively eventful finale that will grip and greatly please anyone who has been at all a fan of the series up to now…"

Justin Chang from Variety:

…As preparations are made for an epic clash between good and evil, Yates achieves a thrilling sense of "convergence, of innumerable dramatic, thematic, romantic, emotional and musical threads from the past seven films being woven together at last: Old and new friends are well met, comeuppances are dealt out, and little-seen veterans are granted a valedictory moment in the spotlight."
