I know you are feeling: It's just so AMAZING!
Wierd Sisters Song: Do The Hippogriff -GOF Soundtrack

Ok...I will give the good first and the bad last.


Pros

On hormones:

All-in-all hilarious! The boys of the Trio looking for dates is just hysterical!

Acting:

Alan Rickman gives a truely Alan Rickman performance, there's no other way to put it. >D He goes from creepy to extremely funny in three lines. Gotta love him. The end brings tears to the eye! Just...*sigh*...I mean...when Cedric dies. Voldemort. I'm at a loss; brilliant would be an understatement and creepy only scratches the serface. The trio's acting abilities have grown so much! Again, when Harry is crying over Cedric's body...it'll make you cry, no doubt. Harry and Ron's fight is truely amusing. >D Rita Skeeter was DEAD ON! THE TWINS ARE MY HEROES! THEY ARE DEAD ON as well! OH MY GOD! For the little time Sirius was "on screen", they definately caught the marauders' sense of humor in there. YAY! Sirius has the shoeboxy humor! YAY! Neville! You are amazing! I love you! You wild boy, you! ;-)

Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody deserves a paragraph all his own. The eye is insane! He is very intense. No one could have played him better. Just...WOW!

Effects:

I really like the way they did the portkey; not quite the way I imagined it, but inspired all the same. The dragon looks fantastic! Then there is the maze. Just plain scary!

Specific Scenes:

The bathtub scene....*dies* Moaning Murtle is....let's just say I had an almost irrepressible urge to fall on the floor and roll around laughing my ass off...literally. Oh, for the Dan Fans: you get to see a bit more of him in this movie. *nudgenudgewinkwink* Lots of people were wistling, of course. *fake innocent face*
The ferret scene. Another "ROTF" moment. Moody! I clapped. Seriously, and got the rest of the theater to clap with me! YAY! He so deserved it!
The scene where the twins get those ridiculous beards! >D *dies* I LOVE THE TWINS IN THIS MOVIE!

Cons

On characters:

I don't like Dumbledore that much in this one. Gambon had it right in the third movie! Remeber at the end on the Time Turner scene where he says, "Did what? Good night." Then he just walks away humming to himself. Ok, that's how Dumbledore is. In GOF, he's very emotional. I do have to give him this though: he is very cool at the end.

Deletions

Ok, I get why they cut out the Dursely's, Winky, Dobby, Ludo Bagman, most of the Quidditch World Cup, Professor Tralawney, the infirmery scene, Sirius at the end, Voldemort killing his father in the beginning, but why did they cut out catching Rita Skeeter at the end? That's kind of important! >D Oh my god! I just realized that they cut out Harry giving the Twins the Triwizard winnings! The Weasley's Wizard Weezes is really important in the 6th installment! *shakes head*

 

If I were going to give this movie a rating, I would give it 3.7 stars as far as Harry Potter movies go and a 9 out of 10 over all. A definate must see!

Note: People that have not read the books will actually be able to follow this movie! YAY!

I loved this one! Well, I've loved all of them, but this is my favorite, which is rather strange considering it was my least favorite book.

I agree, Mad Eye was brilliant! The scene where Snape was hitting Harry and Ron was hysterical!

I don't like Dumbledore that much in this one. Gambon had it right in the third movie!

I didn't really think he had it right in the 3rd one, except for the end scene that you mentioned. But, the scene in GoF when he attacks Harry after his name is tossed from the Goblet..? I was like WTF?

The bathtub scene....*dies*

I know!! Hoopy! My sides were hurting throughout the movie, but I loved this scene. And isnt the actress who plays MM in her 20s or 30s?

THE TWINS ARE MY HEROES! THEY ARE DEAD ON as well!
They were great! I cannot wait until their exit scene in OoTp! I'm glad that the directors since Chris have been utilizing them more.

I can't wait either! They're my favorite characters after the marauders.

the scene in GoF when he attacks Harry after his name is tossed from the Goblet..? I was like WTF?

Same here! I thought the same thing: WTF? Also, I love how they made the adults just as infallable as the kids. That was the a message in the book that normally wouldn't get translated to the movie. Very good.
