HP: Goblet of Fire
« on: November 17, 2005, 05:09:28 pm »
I'm going to the midnight premier tonight at the Continetal.
I think it's the biggest screen in Colorado.

I'll let you all know how it is tommorow.

If it's anything like the last one, I think it will be awesome.

Yeah Ema Watson is still 15 though. She won't be a no-talent pregnant ass-clown like Britney. And anyway Ema lives in Oxford and is hella smart. She won't fall into that.

I was in line for Return of the King's midnight 13hours early in my RenFest stuff(w/ sword), Episode III in a dark Jedi outfit 17 hours early(I was there 40 hours early but the theater told me if I stayed over night they would have me arrested so I had to come back), and I've been to every HP midnight...not in costume.

Midnight premiers are the best things in the world. Episode III and ROTK were the greatest times of my life. Having thousands of people who love what you love sit and talk together for a whole day...it's just awesome.

If you have some then you should call my parents. They've been dealing since before I was born. The whole reason we moved out of LA was because some dealers threatened to hold me as ransom if they didn't pay in time. I was 2 at the time.

Wow, that was serious. Seriously, if they used the internet, I would have you guys hook up.

now i wouldnt usually use such a blatantly prejudiced and childish insult but I think that on the poter for this movie, Daniel Radcliff looks really GAY. Sorry :P

I cant imagine how much theyve cut out of this film, the last one had enouh missing and it was the size of a normal book. I may see this, I may not.

That poster looks so Gay ::)

Wow, well this movie was great.
I mean it was darker then the last one, is about 2.5 hours, and was written by an actual British group. So it has real British slang in it(which surprisingly helps).

The whole You Know Who scene at the end, was just plain wicked. And the Quiditch World Cup showed off the Irish quite nicely, which was cool.(looks down at his Ireland hoodie) But overall, I thought this was just as good if not better then the last one.

I would write a more in depth review, but after yesterday's 14-hour shift, follwed by a midnight premier, followed icy roads(meaning slow traffic), having to park 2 blocks away from my apartment, and then coming here this early and working another day...I guess you could say I'm a little worn out.

Anyway, definitely go see it. Especially great on the big screen. I saw it on an IMAX-sized screen, but just see it in theaters instead of waiting for it on DVD.

I quit reading after the 4th book and haven't gotten around so seeing any of the movies... saw part of the first one on tv a while ago, and it looked WAY too childish.

So... Is it worth it?

The first 2 movies are childish, but the 3rd and now the 4th are darker and better. I own the 3rd but I will probably never own the first 2.

I thought it was a good movie. Some girls at my school who worshipped it for the month before it came out didn't like it because they were disappointed.

I saw it today. It was very good, very dark yet humorous too. The guy who plays Ron really did a good job with his facial expressions and acting in this movie... imo. I would agree its one of the better ones in the series.

Ron's facial expressions consist of worried, confused, and any mix thereof. That's an easy role.

I thought it was good but I think the new guy who plays Dumbledore did a horrible job.  It took me right out of the movie when he started talking.  On the other hand I think they did a great job with Voldermort.

I pretty much like the film for the most part. Nice and action-y with good special effects and fairly decent acting.
But what amazes me is not the film, but everybody here. There are people here who actually like the third movie! I never thought I would find anyone who would actually like the film. I loved it, but everyone seems to hate it. :(

Yeah, "Voldemort"  must have been in make-up for hours. Dumbledore didn't sound wise enough, just sounded like a normal guy. The old Dumbledore kicked ass though. SPOILER>>>At least Dumbledore won't be in the 7th movie.<<<

My problem with this Dumbledore is that he shows way to much anger and is way too aggresive with Harry.  In the books he always believes Harry and is kind to him.  He acts like a father figure to him.  Not like a distrustful old man.

In the end, according to Jowling's book, Ron and Hermione hooks up, not Harry.

I saw the movie this saturday, from a person who has read all the books, and seen all the other movies, I think this one was somewhat better than the last one. However, I do feel that a lot of book 4 is cut out, thus it was disappointing. However, I do understand that it's really hard to fit a 600 page novel within 2 and a half hours.

If you havn't seen the movie, go see it. It's not GREAT, but it's good.

But that was just the problem. It may work in the books, but I don't think it works at all in film. We have this character who knows alot (you know, the prophecy and everything) and weird things and potentially dangerous things are happening. It completely makes sense for a person to start getting impatient or angry.
It also shows that he cares for Harry. Parents don't show love for their children by always being nice and speaking with soft voices, they occassionally get angry, and it shows their love for their child. I'm not saying that Dumbledore is Harry's father, but he is pretty much a father figure.

I thought the whole movie was good that I really didn't notice that Dumbledore was different. He didn't play that big of a part in this one. The part I really found interesting was the one of Voldemort. He turned out to be sort evilly charming. Not at what I expected.

Well, I do have reason to believe that NOBODY saw this coming.
->
I should also say that nobody saw it coming in the books...

But Britney Spears was attractive, for about a year, at least when I was in elementary school. I think that second picture might be just a bad shot, but she's not very attractive. :-\

Oh, and by the way, it's really obvious that Harry has make-up on in that picture. I've never seen it more obvious.

Dude, I think that second pic is Sarah Michelle Gellar's body. ;D And I love Harry's man-hands in that one too. It's definitely a crappy photoshop job if anything.

And yeah, she isn't Hollywood pretty, but I think she's a very attractive girl. And I think she is going to be very hot when she gets older.

Anyway, I think the movie was very good, and yeah they do make it appear that Hermione and Harry are getting together in the movie, but it's just to throw off the audience. It's like how LOTR made it seem like the Hobbits were going to die, but everyone who read the books knew it wouldn't happen. It really is funny how many people were asking me for info about Return of the King before they saw it. I just kept telling people Frodo dies at the end and they all believed me. Almost no one I knew has read any of these books.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

I've read every book so far and pretty much liked every single one - however after seeing the first movie some years ago I decided never ever to watch a HP-Movie again. I found it to be really dissapointing compared to the book, it's just not the same...  :-\

Same goes with every adpatation. There is no way that they can do a direct trnasfer. Mainly because of how long it is, and the only people that would enjoy a nine-hour movie with that much detail is the reader.

Believe me I would've loved LOTR a million times more if it was firectly from the book. And HP too...

I just try not to think of them like that. I think of them as artist's renditions. So I know they won't be exact. LOTR is Peter Jackson's LOTR, etc.

Trust me, if you hear about a movie coming out that's after a book, it helps A LOT if you dont read the book until at least a while after the movie comes out, otherwise the movie would be spoiled by you pointing out the millions of differences.

Also, I thought this movie was much better than the previous ones. it had less crappy and more not crappy.

For me, LOTR is the exception to the book better than film rule. The books were just too much hard wrk to read and they didnt have the same flow as the film did. I read fellowship of the Ring, then got half way through the Two towers before i gave up from the sheer tedium I was experiencing.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
