Leave your answers and a review either in a comm ent or a new post under a livejournal cut. If you don't know how to do a LJ cut you can find out how in FAQ's.


I'll answer this in a comment later on, but I personally loved it as a film, but was slightly annoyed if comparing it to the book - but possibly the best film yet in my opinion.

Worst scene? the beginning stuff was too fast!
Best new character? a tough one. i loved the champions, but Voldomort was just superb!
Comments on the the acting skills of the trio. They sure can make harry look short! ;) very very good. loved the actors, but there wasn't enough stuff with em
Dumbledore? too phsyical. he just wouldn't grab harry and shake him like that...
Moody? good, i didn't like his leg though, and his eye wasn't what i envisioned
Voldemort/His appearance? AWESOME!
Snape? WE NEEDED MORE OF HIM!
McGonagall? i repeat myself
Neville and the spider's scene? very good, needed to be longer...i'm still repeating myself
Choppy opening or good adaptation? crappy opening
Decent ending or cop-out? decent, good
Mike Newell for president or Mike Newell to go back to RomCom's? I really liked his direction, but again, the movie just needed to be longer!
Ron and Hermione - The Yule Ball scenes? quite fun! loved their acting!
The 1st task - Comments? What about that dragon, huh? sigh, i didn't really need it to chase harry all over the place, but it WAS cool
2nd task - Comments? found the mermaids WAY to easily, loved all of the gilly-weed stuff, it was just amazing!
3rd task - Comments? very cool, very scary, but it needed the creature at the end to give harry the riddle, but it's ok
The graveyard scene and the deatheaters in general? deatheaters, i didn't like their masks, just wasn't what i pictured, but freaking sweeeeeeet!
What did you miss from the books that wasn't in the film? (e.g. The Dursleys) that's a toughy. winky and dobby and spew, mostly, but also the ENTIRE QUIDICH WORLD CUP!
Too long? Too short? Should have made 2 films? Should have been longer with an intermission? should have been longer with an intermission
Best acting performance by character ... ? voldomort and harry
Portrayal of Beauxbatons? LOVED their enterance!
Portrayal of Durmstrang? LOVED their enterance! the music for that part just blew me away...
Looking forward to film 5 or just want them to stop ruining the books by making them into films? all i can say is that they'd better do em all, i'm not sure whether i'll like em (i hope!) but if they stop at 6 for example, i would be very VERY upset!!!

What did you think of the trailers for King Kong and Narnia? didn't see king kong, but NARNIA LOOKS SOOOOOOOO FANTASTIC!
Heyyyyy! I've not seen the film yet! I've heard it's amazing though, despite the fact that Sirius's head is just in the fire briefly and that's all... I really need to see the film. Sigh.
Outrage!!!!! >< lol

OMG!! How could you not have seen it yet!?!?! :o :p ^^

Well, go see it soon. I hear it's highly recommended. ;)

Sam x

PS) Yeah, Sirius's head is just in the coals but there's a tiny voiceover too for a letter from him to Harry... You'll love Voldemort, me thinks ;)

Need more Snape!!!!!!!
No I haven't, it's not even out in Australia yet *huff* NO FAIR!!!!!!
Aww... Well, when it does come out, don't forget to review it here! ;)

When does it come out over there anyway?

Best film yet?
GOF definitly!

Worst film yet?
COS... but I'm still gonna watch it on TV Saturday! :p

Best scene?
Um, possibly the scene with Snape rolling up his sleeve ready to wallop Harry and Ron again! :D Otherwise, 1st task.

Worst scene?
Um, tricky... not sure on that one yet.

Best new character?
I really liked Cedric and the guy who played his Dad... but Voldemort is the winner!!

Comments on the the acting skills of the trio.
I think they've got better, but there's still room for improvement.

Dumbledore?
I was worried from the online clips that he was being too physical, but after watching the film I don't think its so bad. True, I agree in the books, that's not how DD acts, but this IS the film guys.

Moody?
I actually liked moody and whilsty his appearance wasn't what I had imagined from the books, I can live with it, and I especially liked his acting in the DADA class.

Voldemort/His appearance?
Amazing!!! He should have had red eyes, but otherwise I loved his appearance and the way Fiennes portrayed him was absolutely spot-on!

Snape?
Not enough lines/screen time, but he just keeps on getting better and better!! :D (I <3 SS!)

McGonagall?
I really liked Maggie's parts in this film, in some of the others she's been kind of side-stepped almost, but the ferret scene and the way she points her wand in Moody's face! and then the scene with SS and DD when she's trying to get Harry out of the Tournament... OH! and the scene when Harry's name is pulled out of the cup and she is the 1st and only one of the teachers to try and comfort him... it shows Gryffindor loyalty.

Neville and the spider's scene?
I really liked this scene, you only hear about his parents being tortured into insanity in the pensieve scene, and I asked my parents if they noticed that and they said No, :/ But, I also liked how Hermione played this scene too, and how Moody did... oh it was just a great scene!! lol :p

Choppy opening or good adaptation?
I'll agree, that the opening was rather choppy, but not nearly as choppy as I thought POA was - (I hated that opening!) More WorldCup would have been nice, but I think it works how it is too.

Decent ending or cop-out?
I didn't think it was too bad, but I was talking to my Dad about it (whose never read the books) and he thought it was a bit of a cop-out :/

Mike Newell for president or Mike Newell to go back to RomCom's?
PRESIDENT!

Ron and Hermione - The Yule Ball scenes?
I'm glad this scene was rather long because I think it helps set up what happens in book 6 better than anything else we've seen so far. (And by this I mean when Hr catches R kissing Lavender and then Hr tries to make R jealous. BK6.)

The 1st task - Comments? What about that dragon, huh?
I actually really enjoyed this, I'm not sure if the allowing the dragon to get free and chase Harry round Hogwarts was necessary, and then the teachers and everyone just waiting to see which came back first, (i.e. If Harry had died!) but other than that I really liked the SFX.

2nd task - Comments? I didn't enjoy the 2nd task as much as I hoped I would, I agree with whoever said it, that Harry found the mermaids too fast/easily. Although I was impressed with the what-yuh-callem's... um, dammit! those things that attack Harry, you know...

3rd task - Comments?
I wish they included the Sphinx but other than that I was pretty impressed by the amount of damage shrubs can cause people! lol :p

The graveyard scene and the deatheaters in general?
Loved the DE's! Their appearance really wasn't what I had pictured they looked more like the KKK, but I liked it because it was so much different, and pretty original, I thought.
The graveyard scene was brilliant, although I wanted it to be scarier and for Voldie to hit Harry a few more times with the ol' Crucio but all actor's performances in this scene were perfect.. However, I did cringe a little at how corny the Priori Incantatem scene was, when Cedric and Harry's parents etc come out of Voldie's wand... but I can live with that...
...
What did you miss from the books that wasn't in the film? (e.g. The Dursleys)
Um, I thought I would miss the Dursley's and the house elves etc etc, but I actually found myself missing the other Weasley's more and Sirius at the end... the film still works without them, but it would have been nice to of seen Molly and Sirius in the hospital wing!

Too long? Too short? Should have made 2 films? Should have been longer with an intermission?
Um, I could of had a bit longer, maybe with an intermission... but when I saw lotr-RotK, the intermission put me off a little... but I wouldn't have made it into 2 films, and I wouldn't have had it any shorter either, I'd say it was about right for that size book.

Best acting performance by character ... ?
VOLDEMORT!!!!!

Portrayal of Beauxbatons?
Um, well I really liked Olympe but I didn't like the Beauxbaton's entrance in the Great Hall.. it was a bit cringe worthy.
However, I thought the casting of Fleur was spot on!

Portrayal of Durmstrang?
Again, I liked the casting of Krum, I liked Durmstrang's entrance much better than the Beauxbatons... and Karkarof(sp?) was a good cast too, I thought. Yeah, I pretty much liked Durmstrang.

Looking forward to film 5 or just want them to stop ruining the books by making them into films?
Yep, definitly looking forward to film 5! I just hope it's as good as if not better than GOF! :D

What did you think of the trailers for King Kong and Narnia? Good, huh? lol ;p
lol. I'm hoping to see both films, although apparently Narnia has bad reviews... hmm.. Plus, I really want to see another Peter Jackson film, so Kong it is!
Apparently, my comments were too long!?!?!?!

So, I had to put them into two, lol
Best film yet? HELL YEAH!!!!!

Worst film yet? POA, just don't like it.

Best scene? Snape rolling up his sleeve ready to wallop Harry and Ron, LOL!!!

Worst scene? None

Best new character? Cidric, WHY!!!!WHY DID HE HAVE TO DIE!!!!!!

Comments on the the acting skills of the trio. So much better, then the previous ones, but Dan really needs to stop winking when he's talking

Dumbledore? ver eh......hands on

Moody? a tad bit more crazy then I would have thought

Voldemort/His appearance? Not scary, but I think the acting was spot on.

Snape? HE WASN'T ON ENOUGH!!!! He just keeps getting better and better.

McGonagall? I liked her suprisingly.

Neville and the spider's scene? It was too forced

Choppy opening or good adaptation? I say it was good adaptation, cause you do have to keep in mind how long the book is I think they did well.

Decent ending or cop-out? It was good enough

Mike Newell for president or Mike Newell to go back to RomCom's? Hell he's better then George Bush, and thats got my vote.

Ron and Hermione - The Yule Ball scenes? one word. Perfect!!!!!!

The 1st task - Comments? What about that dragon, huh? Loved every min of it.

2nd task - Comments? could have been a bit longer.

3rd task - Comments? I have to say I was some what disappointed, they, left out so much of the things.

The graveyard scene and the deatheaters in general? I pictured a lot more death eaters, was it just me or did voldemort called one of the Rossier but back in the pensive scene we were told he was dead.

What did you miss from the books that wasn't in the film? (e.g. The Dursleys) The qudditch world cup.

Too long? Too short? Should have made 2 films? Should have been longer with an intermission? I think the two films idea whould have been good,

Best acting performance by character ... ? Alan Rickman all the way!

Portrayal of Beauxbatons? Somewhat girly,

Portrayal of Durmstrang?Somewhat manly, (again, is it just me or was there only girls from Beauxbaons and only guys from Durmstrang?)

Looking forward to film 5 or just want them to stop ruining the books by making them into films? I never really like Book 5, but hey what the heck, I don't mind watching it, maybe Dan would stop winking and Emma would ACTUALLY look like Hermione.
