The movie itself I liked. Of course, I am not really a big fan of Harry Potter, though I have read all the books and liked them well enough, so I was not inclined to nitpick. Overall, a very pleasant impression and aftertaste. I would say, the only thing that really did not work for me was the announcement by the Minister of Magic that the Ministry is keeping everyone safe. Not only I hated the tone and the pacing of the words, but the image of Bill Nighy's character from Love Actually kept popping up in my head. I really loved the animation about the Deathly Hallows, that was beautifully made. And I liked the Lovegoods. There were some good laughing moments, some awww moments, and a couple moments where I was slightly startled even though I knew exactly what was about to happen. One thing - I thought Nagini coming out of Bathilda Bagshot scene could have been done better. Didn't quite chill my blood the way I would hope... but oh well.
Just as I was leaving the theater, I heard all those groups around me discussing the movie and saying how some scenes were butchered compared to how they were in the book... I couldn't help but feel nostalgic for when I would watch the LotR movies with the people from the old Imladris and then discuss them for a good hour, in the frigid December wind, unable to break it off... I miss that. I kind of miss the old Imladris/CoE... it still exists, and some of the old people still go there occasionally, but that sense of camaraderie that united us - for me, that's pretty much gone. Such a pity... and some people I would really love to hear from, they have dropped off the face of the Internet altogether.
