    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

My brother tried to make me & my sister watch it because he knew how much we hate rats, but he also wanted to convince us that it's a brilliant film. We made it to the part at the very beginning when the colony of rats crashes through the ceiling and both of us…
