Yes, yes, the penultimate 'Harry Potter' film is upon us, but believe it or not, it isn't the sole moviegoing option this weekend. Let's dig in, shall we?

-'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1': Here's the magical elephant in the room, the first half of J.K. Rowling's last book brought to life. We had two reviews, one from Eric D. Snider's series-savvy perspective -- "a quietly thrilling and artful chapter in the eight-part series" -- and the other from admitted outsider Todd Gilchrist, who found the film to be "a well-constructed, competently-told and generally engaging tale that conveys an appropriate sense of finality and suffers only from being but part of the whole story." Win-win!
