I proclaim this movie good. Best of the series so far.

And yes, I am loser.

I want to see it.

Based on previous efforts, that probably means I won't manage to go to the cinema and will have to wait for the DVD.

It's really sort of like Harry Potter: The Action Movie. It really drops most of the background stuff from the book and just hits all the exciting stuff.

I was pretty good for a potter movie, but it was arse-numbingly too long (because it wasn't that good!) and had no proper ending...

The Goblet of Fire is my favorite of the books. The movie was ok, but they cut out a lot. You really didn't get to see much of Harry's angst for Cho Chang and the arguments between his friends were short and pointless. Also the ending of the book set up for the next book, but the movie didn't do this so the next movie will have some explaining to do as to why certain people behave a certain way.

Also, did Cho Chang have a Liverpool accent in the movie?

She was totally scoootish.

Was she hot?

Hot enough.

I'm going to see it tomorrow. After Venom's proclamation I know it won't disappoint me.

Damn right. I've got great taste. But I'm more filling...so Miller Lite is still better than me.

Goddammit, I agree with Venom about this movie.

Thought this was pretty cool, and all the cute kids are now growing up into hotties. Emily Watson is shaping up into a great actress and a beautiful woman, I hope she goes on to do 'proper' films. There was also a lot of visual humour and nice touches that defined this film although it kept the darkness of the Askaban film. Its a shame we didn't get more of the plot as told in the book, but at approximately 2.5 hours my arse hurt enough. Will be interested to see how they adapt the Order of the Phoenix. I really hope JK now makes the seventh book a worthwhile ending. Watching the film last night it occurred to me more than ever that the sixth book was totally lacking in some of the elements that made the other books great, Goblet especially, eg the details of the world they inhabit, the great characters, the tight and mysterious plots. I'm still convinced that Harry won't die- Voldemort wants it too much.

I think it wasn't that great as a movie (best of the first 4 books though)

it just oculd not be watched independently

that would be awesome

saw it over xmas, thought it was on a par with the other films

i.e. visually stunning and spot on in recreating the atmosphere, but feels a bit disjointed and rather light to someone who has read the books

good stuff though

Still haven't seen it, despite meaning to go about 3 times over Christmas. I fear my prediction will come true.
