Who has seen the new movie?
I am currently "acquiring" it.
I think there are some threads about this.
I've seen it, it's really good IMO.
oh cool. I thought there would already be threads. I just can't be bothered looking.
It only came out here yesterday
I liked it. the only complaints I have heard was that there wasn't enough of it.
Harry Potter is evil. The books and films teach impressionable children witchcraft. He must be banned.
lol, too funny. Thats the same attitude a co worker had, but about Sesame Street
That's ok - one of my coworkers goes even further on the "its evil" routine and includes things like Yoga and handwriting analysis.
There are actually a group of American church goers who have this view... :meh:
I thought this one actually had humour for all not just 5 year olds. Like the books do. I thought it was miles better than the others where teh 3rd only just passes the mediocre bar the other two nosedive to rock bottom hitting every proverbvial acting branch on the way down.
It was rushed as they have to be if they aren't going to be too long for small kids. Although I think after this one small kids wont be able to handle some of the stuff. They should make them 15 certificates and makes them as dark as they should be. I think they can afford to make them longer, it didn't feel its 2 hours 40 minutes and I think it could have afforded to be longer. I think that the child actors hav e improved alot, Hermione actress (whatever her name is) being the best. I can't see the other two having an acting career at all, Harry potter actor will only ever be harry potter now and Ron actor just isn't very good.
Also one thing I actually hated in this film and the last is the portrayal of Dumbledore. In the books he is regal, wise supposedly all knowing and nice, warm and a great character. Since Richard Harris died the new actor plays him like a raving maniac who shouts and makes exaggerated gestures totally unlike the character in the book. I've heard of artistic license but come on!
All over I'd give it *** stars
Well I'm currently into being EVIL and Harry Potter is far from it. The new HP:GOB was pretty weak IMO compared to the earlier ones. Left little for the imagination and seemed a bit rushed. Good CGI though. I also felt like I had seen is 12 times before as I was watching it.
I can't believe you think this It amazes me. I think the first two were pretty shocking on the whole.
Anyway nothing can come close to the books.
We just saw it Tuesday. Overall I liked it a lot. I didn't think they did as good a job with Fluer (sp?). In the book she had a bewitching personality and I didn't think they pulled that off to well in the movie. Still, we enjoyed it quite a bit.
