The deathly boring hollows. Part 0.1

“David Yates’ Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I” Is going into post. Yeah so what you say, I would have said the same thing if not for the disturbing existence of "Part 1" in the title.
They have got be kidding. If anything the book itself was unnecessarily drawn out. Now they want to make the standard 2.3 hours of Harry Potter into some sort of world record for gouging the attention span of the human race? It took me just over 6 hours to read the deathly hollows, and I read slow. Someone has lost their goddamn mind on this one. I would like to convey the sorrow I have to the poor editor, who will undeniably be the architect of this travesty.
. Who knows it may even be a shorter shoot since nothing happens in the deathly hollow till the end. The book was filled with unnecessary activities and insipid interactions . The most dreary and self martyring from Harry .Who drones on like a Emo teen suicide poster child for 3/4 of the book.

 So on a positive note, if whoever cuts this manages to pull off 2 films from what will most likely be the same footage they were going to use in the first place They should win an award. Possibly a presidential medal just for good measure and for serving the American and global community by making 5.2 hours of  wishing you could be doing your taxes again into a watchable and semi interesting finale to this epic film series.
