You all can take your time in seeing it. And I'd avoid giving in to ANY of the hype. If you go in with low expectations, you may get a little more than what you're hoping for.

go in with moderate to high expectations, and you'll probably feel a bit let down.

Yeah, it was better than what I thought. I really didn't like the 3rd movie, but I think this one was loads better.

Although, was anyone else kinda disturbed at the whole bathroom scene with Mertle and Harry? The movie was getting awfully close to becoming Hairy Potter.

Oh, Hairy Potter. I'm teh best at jokes!

Oh, at the world-quiditch cup tournament, did anyone else notice that they made the Russians decidedly communistic by having Krug pose on the picture screen? I liked that little tidbit, but I think they went a bit too far with the whole Rasputin-wannabe Russian House leader.

Yes..though there actually Bulgarian and I do agree, that Drumstrang's school leader, Karkaroff, looked like Rasputin.

Mike Windu
11-20-2005, 11:26 PM
Well, death eaters/Azkaban prisoners are usually tattered and crazy looking, so I think they hit it right on the head. Maybe it was a side reference to Rasputin, but that's definitely how I envisioned Karkaroff

I thought Voldemort was ridiculous. completely out of character. When he wanted to duel harry, instead of sounding menacing and evil, he was basically dancing around. I half expected a song and dance style duel.

Mike Windu

Mike Windu
11-21-2005, 02:33 AM
I don't ever recall him bursting into the can can. He was excited though. Honestly, I think it adds to the character. He's enjoying every bit of torturing Harry. So he's not a one dimensional brooding villain stereotype. Also, he's still really cool. The guy freakin screams with Harry when he's pushing his finger into his scar.

Although I do find it a little funny what he did with his little hand motion before he touched Harry. waPOW I'm here mother****cker!

He's mad now, though. Before Harry zapped him of his strength, Voldemort was indeed something twisted and wicked. But I think being transformed into his former self after living for more than a decade powerless and deformed caused him to go quite a bit cuckoo in the head. Especially when the little punk who took away his power is right there, ready to be tortured.

My thoughts exactly. I mean, it only took them one year to put out. That's freaking fast. I understand the kids aren't kids anymore, but holy crap, take your time to make a good movie.

I saw it last night. I was slightly let down. I've read most of the books a few times (I know, I know), and they left out stuff. And a lot of it. Most of it was little things that really didn't change the story one way or another. But, there was some of it that really made the book funny. IE, the letter from Ron at the beginning.

Other than that, pretty good movie. The action sequences were great and I really liked how Snape interacted with Ron and Harry. That was perfect. The twins were on top of their game. Really looking forward to see how they do the next one.

Come on, seriously. Alfonso Cuarón is a mexican just like I am and I'm just dissapointed that he made the worst of all four films. I'm sorry to say it, but Mike Newell made the cast give more convincing performances, and concentrated his efforts on it. Alfonso just couldn't handle it. :( it breaks my heart to say it, and he left out much more important scenes from the book, like the explanation to why his patronus was the image of his father's animagus form.

Most of it was little things that really didn't change the story one way or another. But, there was some of it that really made the book funny. IE, the letter from Ron at the beginning.

I saw it on Saturday and on Sunday, I was totally blown away, but really you couldn't make a harry potter movie three hours long, it's too much, I do think, however that the Quidditch World cup should have appeared complete, it was for me one of the most exciting scenes of the book, so Newel should put the whole scene in the dvd. I was also let down by the fact that there were several things they left out, but seriously Hermione's obsession with SPEW is just annoying and totally inconsecuential at this point even in the books, it's just a side story for hermione. But mostly a lot from the books that is not in the movie just would have cut the flow of the film and would have been totally unnecesary, Ludo Bagman and Doby are just characters that in terms of the movie, didn't have much to participate on, and they were not going to spend money on an actor to appear for less than a minute.

Other than that, pretty good movie. The action sequences were great and I really liked how Snape interacted with Ron and Harry. That was perfect. The twins were on top of their game. Really looking forward to see how they do the next one.

I loved the movie, it was great, I am a potter fan, and I'm not sorry for admitting it, I have all six books and I've read them a thousand times. I was also let down by the fact that there were several things they left out, but seriously Hermione's obsession with SPEW is just annoying and totally inconsecuential at this point even in the books, it's just a side story for hermione. Harry looks great and Krum is just hot, ron is ugly and Cedric was hot but sadly dead... Cho sucks!

manoman81
11-21-2005, 05:56 PM
Wow...Didn't think I would get that kind of reaction. The reason why I wasn't happy with some of the stuff they left out was because again it made the book funny. I forgot about the SPEW stuff. Glad they left it out. I would have liked to have seen:
Sirius, Dobby, Bagman, Quidditch match

The cast as a whole acted wonderfully. For me the movie didn't seem long enough despite the 2:45 min running time. It just felt like it hit up the really, super improtant parts. There was just little things that I missed not seeing.

I think one of the biggest sufferings of the movie is it's pacing. Because there is so much story, it's HERE THERE OVER THERE LOOK OKAY MOVING ON!

There's no character development, or any kind of sub-plot, and no scene is allowed to take longer than the absolute minimum necessary to convey the point. (Aside from the overly drawn out and boring dragon chase)

It was too much content to put in the movie, I think it hit the main points of the story and it did it great.

I actually liked that scene.... :(

ET Warrior
11-21-2005, 08:04 PM
It was too much content to put in the movie,Which is basically my point. If you can't do it right, don't do it at all. If you like it that way, then that's fine, and it's your opinion, but I think at the very least they should've made a 3 hour movie out of it. Then it would have seemed like they were at least TRYING.

Shana
11-21-2005, 08:13 PM
but look at it the way it was, GoF has too many subplots that don't really contribute to the movie, just for the fun of the reader, that's why they are there, Dobby is great, but he has too many scenes in the book that just would cut the flow of the film and he only has like two scenes of relevance in which he appears only for like less than a minute and he's gone... And if you think about it cooly, then you'll realise that the movie can perfectly survive without the subplots

Actually I think there was a ton of character development as Harry and the others start their whole teenage love/etc thing with the Yule Ball, Cho Chang, Fleur, etc etc etc.

But whatever, your opinion is your own.

yes, i relly liked how there was no S.P.E.W in it, i alos liked how Ron and Harry didnt fight as much as they did in the book...
i hated also that they didnt talk more the alastor moody when they found out about, like, the people that havent read the book dont understand how that happened...i also didnt like moodys eye, i expected it to be like a glass eye, but i guess they couldnt do that since they cant just take his eye out and put in a glass one.

Jeff
11-21-2005, 10:06 PM

Yeah, his eye didn't look like I expected it to look. Actually the actor didn't look anything like I expected Moody to look like. That's another problem with book-to-movies, the characters never look like you imagine them to.

MTV2
11-21-2005, 10:51 PM
the best part from book-to-movie was prolly when Harry left the ring on the first task and the dragon followed him and they went onto the castle...i say that was the best part...i
also expected there to be the muggle at the world cup that get taken by the death eaters, and where they went into the forest and there was dobby not just harry getting hit in the head then seeing Barty Coruch Jr.
i also didnt like how they never had that rita skeeter dispute and where hagrid was going out w/ madam...w/e her name was.
i also expected the death eaters hats to be different...

yes, I also find that very boring. They could have taken it ou all of that and put in the Qudditch World Cup that everyone wanted to see.

i also expected the death eaters hats to be different...

:laughing: haha, I found it quite humorous. I leaned over and asked Mike "And when did the KKK come into the book?"

boinga1
11-22-2005, 09:23 AM
I was dissapointed, to say the least. The movie was overall decent, certainly better than the last (i felt). No World Cup, but I can understand that for the sake of the story. The Death Eaters looked stupid (were they supposed to resemble the KKK? Very corny if that was the case). The entrances for the Beaubatons and Durmstrang students, I felt, were silly; furthermore, there is no reason (of which I am aware) that the French school sent only girls and Durmstrang only boys (haven't read my book in a while).
The scene with the dragon was ridiculous and imo rather stupid; it makes no sense for Harry to lead the dragon away from the arena (the dragon is supposed to stay near the egg and he has to lure it away). I also didn't notice a scoring scene after the first task, although that isn't a big deal. I didn't have any real gripes with the second challenge. The maze, I though, was pretty stupid, and I would have preferred it to be loaded with monsters and such as in the book.
I thought Voldemort came off as a pansy. He should have been a powerful, intimidating figure. Instead, he was a normal sized guy with a raspy voice and ugly face. I'd recommend a deeper voice, a hood, and more height. The graveyard scene was alright, except for two things: a) Why were there only six or seven Death Eaters, and why did they fall out of the Dark Mark? b) Why would Voldemort ever let Harry get up and try to defend himself? He's a cold blooded killer, he should try to kill Harry as soon as he gets a shot.
The concluding scenes felt very rushed, probably in the interest of time, but I would have been horribly confused if I hadn't read the books. Overall, I give it a 5.5 out of 10.

at least they added some action...

i also liked where Snape was banging harry and rons head(they didnt even notice?) by snape(didnt seem like him)

a corny but also quite funny part was when filch ran into the great hall...running w/ his knees up...

and they didnt go into the kitchen! (is that in this book? god im confusing the books now)


well, all i can say about the next harry potter is that theyre getting another director for it...David Yates...hopefully he will put some quidditch in and add the house elf, but god give me mercy if they have S.P.E.W in it...that was the most pointless and nonsense part of the book...

they'll prolly have the scene at the ministry be like 5 minutes when in the book its like 20 minutes...

I agree with that.

And also I think we're not going to see dobby until Halfblood prince movie comes out.

Why would Voldemort ever let Harry get up and try to defend himself? He's a cold blooded killer, he should try to kill Harry as soon as he gets a shot.

He was desperate to prove to everyone that Harry wasn't the "Great" wizard that everyone spoke about, he wanted to make sure that his followers saw that Harry was nothing...

When you're an eater you eat all the way from your first little muggle to your last dying day. When you're an eater when the broom hits the wand you got followers around, you're a powerful man. You're never alone, you're never disconnected. You're home with your own; when Ministry is expected you're well protected. Then you are set with a capital V and you'll never forget until your last muggle kill. Until youuuuur laaaaassst muuuggggllllleeee killlllll!

I believe we should all go back and reread the last part of HP4. Cause I definitely feel sinister joy coming from Voldemort.

and that's what was in the movie.

toms
11-23-2005, 09:08 AM
I thought it rocked.

I like HP, but i'm not a major fan, and to be honest although I can remember the major plot points of the books I can't remember every little detail.

I thought it had the best pacing of any of the HP films (except maybe the first one, and that had nowhere near as much stuff to cram in). The 2nd and 3rd films made bad choices about what to cut and what to leave in, which meant they were really uneven in pacing... some bits feeling really slow and some bits racing past too fast.
This film seemed to manage to capture pretty much all the important points (and the feel) of the book without messing up the pacing. Everything just flowed really well. No mean feat considering the books just keep getting bigger and bigger.

I think it helped that the Triwizard Tournament gave the film a nice, linear central structure to build around. The maze was ok, the underwater bit was great, and the dragon chase was probably my fave bit of the film. Somehow the editing of the chase reminded me of peter jackson's style.

The tournament structure also meant they got to add in some very funny school-life interludes in between rounds, which was part of what was missing from the last two.

The actor playing moody rocked, and the fact they have now got Doctor Who AND ralph fiennes in it means they must have had nearly every good british actor ever in a HP film.
Voldemort was suitably creepy and evil, and i'm looking forward to seeing what Ralph Fiennes (and others) can do with big V's character in the next two movies.

Can't believe it was 2hr45, as it didn't feel long at all. Not sure its for kids at all though. ;-)

Off-topic to HP4, but still related to HP. I was re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (6th book). And I found something somwhat related to Star Wars too.

When Professor Dumbledore was talking to Harry about Horace Slughorn, who chooses people who, to him, have some significanace (spelling maybe wrong). And he sometimes gives names to those people with significance. And if Professor Slughorn wanted him in the "special club", he might call him, "The Boy who lived" or "*The Chosen One."

*Significance in that name.....obviously

seriously i was expecting a complete turn around from the previous movies what with a new director and this talk of being dark. Maybe i just expected it to be as outstanding as Ep 3 was or batman begins when compared to its prequels.

Neways the good parts of the movie really had nothing to do with the story, more of hilarious dialogue where everyone in the cinemas starting laughing.

The whole voldemort thing i didnt find too bad, it was like someone said a pleasant change from your usual brooding bad guy

what they missed i wasnt too fretted about since i knew they had to cut out stuff, but the whole movie seemed in fast forward to me, it def should have been 3 hrs.

For those who havent read the books i'd give it a 7/10 otherwise about 6.

Oh and Emma Watson is the worst actress ever, what the hell were the last few lines of dialogue in that movie .. ridiculously poor acting

Says the person with a Jessica Alba avatar.

Allow me a moment to soak in the irony of it all.

Keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their opinion, and the fact that you do not agree with them does not give you the right to be a jerk towards them. Oh yes, and they cut too much stuff out of the film.

What gives you the impression I don't agree? I'm merely saying it's ironic that a person with an Alba avatar would criticize a new actress of her skill, even though she's proven herself to be rather good.

Anyway, Emma is decent at best, and far from the worst.
And we mustn't forget that even good actors can get royally ****ed by editing. Observe every movie ever made.

My apologies, I meant no disrespect. I simply have a tendency to say stupid things and realise their implications later. That actually got me banned from one forum, but I think I was on to something they didn't want me to find out about. At least you didn't call me Mr. High and Mighty. Wait, can you change my title from "Registered Used" to that?

It was my favorite Harry Potter movie so far.

Not only do I have a crush on the chick who plays Hermione, but then they throw in a whole busload (carriageload?) of French chicks!

They left Rita and the World Cup out! Shame on them.

I will be seeing it soon, I don't know when, but will be seeing it. On a sidenote, I am glad that they didn't put S.P.E.W. in, that part in the book really got me annoyed at Hermione's obssession with it.

BTW, I heard that Harry kisses someone in the movie. Who in the world is it, he doesn't kiss anyone in the book.

Interesting, I don't recall Harry kissing somebody in Goblet of Fire. Though, in Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince he does.

as far as kissing someone in the movie... puberty > harry... the world cup should have been shown since Quiddich matches have all been shown in the prior movies, i think the dragon scene took priority over the match since that would be 2 aerial displays in one movie. (i really 3wanted to see victor krum own all like domanique hasek in hockey )And yes... little whining nub malfoy gets bounced. another thing i am surprised about is the fact Harry didnt narc out malfoys pop Lucius being in the herd of Voltimort fanboys when he is fully " ressurrected"... and i dont know about you guys... but i knew from the start the it was alister moody or at least someone using his identity to mess up stuff from the get go

damn this movie was long (2:45) but didnt seem like it... but it was all worth it to see the superman trailer...... pwnage!!!they even busted out the old school music to the chris reeve films....

It is a real shame jessica alba isn't a better actress, cos she sure is hot. herminoe would win hands down on the acting front though.

The last few lines were very cheesy, but i thougt itwas the lines at fault, not the acting.

@abespam: You should try rewatching the old batman films. Having just got Batman Begins, Batman and Batman Returns on DVD I gotta say batman returns is the best of the three. Batman has dated badly, and while batman begins rocks, it doesn't hold up as well as I expected to repeated viewings.

Well, apparently Commander Obi-Wan did, or at least he congratulated me about it. Frankly, I really didn't say anything about how I had reached 1000 posts, I just said "Thanks" to someone who said something about it. I didn't say anything whatsoever about it. But you are right- this is getting farther off topic.

From what you guys are saying, it seems like they wasted some more scenes on the dragon fight than they should have, you said something about leading the dragon out of the ring. I still can't believe they didn't put the World Cup in.

Well, i for one thought the dragon fight was excellent. That and the underwater bit were the two best bits of the movie imho. It was only 5 minutes or so anyway, so its not like it was that long.

They did have the world cup (and the build up to the opening match) at the start, but panned away as the match kicked off. Which makes sense as it had no effect ont he story and packing in exciting quiddich scenes at the start would have removed impact from later scenes. I can't remember the book in much detail... did they re-do the world cup at the end or something?

PS/Congrats on the post count!! :p
