As close as I'll ever get to Tom Felton.
My L337 Harry Potter 3D glasses.

AND ALSO I CAN'T BEGIN TO DESCRIBE EVERYTHING THAT MADE THIS MOVIE AWESOME.
I'M TOO TIRED TO REMEMBER HOW TO DO SPOILER TAGS AND LJ CUTS SO THE REST OF THIS SHIT IS A SPOILER. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK BUT DON'T COME TO ME LIKE "YOU SPOILED THE MOVIE YOU HOAR!" I WARNED YOU!
Alan Rickman played a large role in that awesomeness, as did, well, everyone really. But Rickman really shone. He needs a fucking award or something for that performance.You saw Snape as human and he translated the emotion of the book perfectly. It was really hard to watch Harry. Not because the acting was bad but because the acting was really, really good. He was so tortured at the end and it was a little hard to watch because you're watching this young man going knowingly going to his death after watching families torn apart to protect him. After seeing the bond between Fred and George irrevocably shattered. And he has to go off and die. Dan played that part oh so well. My favorite scene, one of many, is between the dying Snape and Harry trying to offer some comfort in the last moments of the life of a man whom he believed killed Dumbledore and hated him. That's the kind of man that Harry is. Compassion even for someone who he believes at the time to be an enemy.The death scene with Nagini was brutal and the fact that they didn't show it made it worse some how.
I have so much more to say but it'll have to wait until a proper review later tomorrow. Bed time now.
ETA: Oh and that epilogue had our ENTIRE theater laughing in hysterics. I don't think it was supposed to be funny but man it was hilarious! It's as bad as the epilogue in the book so I was already in cringe mode as soon as I saw "19 Years Later." My cringing was justified. Somehow though, it ended the movie perfectly and kept the generally celebratory, light-hearted mood that every had at the beginning of the movie. It was the perfect ending in a hokey cheesy kind of "maybe should have left that bit out" kind of way.
