i just felt like the movie missed a lot of that, and some of it was pretty important to the story. i found myself having to explain some of it to matt when we watched the movie because he'd never read the books and therefore missed some of the connections. i still loved the movie and it's probably my second favorite after harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2. i just think they could have elaborated on a few things. although, it probably would have made the movie about 5 hours long. it must have been hard to decide what to include and what to cut out in making these movies. a task for which i definitely do not envy the screenwriters!
