    Review: 'Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, Part 1' Is A Satisfying Chapter All Its Own

    And We Can't Wait For Part 2You're just a few minutes into "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1," when it becomes explicitly clear that, no matter how much the other entries in the franchise have flirted with "darkness," this will be a completely different experience. In the scene, Hermione (Emma Watson) is seen at her parents' home. Her parents, as we know, are human (or "Muggles") and therefore not entirely clued in to the apocalyptic doom that's been gathering, like very literal storm clouds, in the magical world. To protect her parents, she waves her wand over them, and she is instantly erased from all of the family photos. She's...

    First 'Green Lantern' Trailer Hits, Still Looks Like A SyFy Channel Movie

    So, we were jawing around the Playlist watercooler today about how with three high profile comic book movies set to hit next year -- "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Green Lantern" -- they can't all be mega hits.
