Goblet of Fire movie is EXCELLENT!
australia, ocean
Like you're surprised at that review? ;) It was very cute how much attention I got especially from teenagers since there were quite a few in robes with glasses & wands, etc, but I had the most authentic costume. I never mentioned how old I was...heh! Since we were chilly this evening, Cyd & I decided to heat up my butterbeer in the microwave & take it in my thermos, which worked well enough even though the fizz goes away. The luckiest people who were brave enough to come up and ask for some got some butterbeer for themselves before we ran out. ;)

Yes, when the movie is compared to the book SO much is missing, but we knew it had to be that way. I understand why they made the changes they did, and I think the changes worked well to translate to movie format. Definitely several sniffles around me for Cedric, and the Hungarian Horntail scene is a perfect model of suspense. Seeing an HP midnight show was cool, but there were times the crowd was laughing or cheering so loudly that we couldn't hear the next line! Ah well...just a reason to see it again...can't wait to see it on IMAX on Saturday! :)

Harry Potter

Didn't think fast enough to get tickets for the midnight show here (Montreal) but did get ticket for the IMAX version for Friday afternoon (the evening shows were already sold out, played hookie from work ;-)). When I went to pick up my ticket about an hour before the 3:15 show every other showing for Friday was sold out, it was playing on 7 screens plus the IMAX in the biggest theatre complex in downtown Montreal. The opening sequence with the snake coming out of the Warner Brothers logo was impressive on the IMAX screen.

As for the movie? It was GREAT!!! Loved it. Although, I think with this one knowing the novel definately helps fill in the plot. Perhaps some people who have not read the book might get a little lost since some important things were either passed over over or quickly refered to.

For an afternoon show on a school day I was surprised at the amount of kids there. Sitting next to me were a bunch of 14-16 year old girls and it was quite funny their reaction to the guys on the screen, they kept swooning although Emma Watson got the young guys in the audience going too ;-)
