I've said before to others and they thought I was insane....
that part on the bridge? wth, why wasn't Ron there? What purpose did it serve to not have Ron on that bridge?
The Yule Ball Brawl looked so forced, and of course Harry comes in and interrupts... I swear Newell is a Harry/Hermione shipper, it's the only reason I can think of as to why he kept trying to force them together in so many scenes.



What bridge?


The walkway thingy in GoF and OotP... the scene right before Cedric tells Harry to take a bath in the prefects's bathroom.

This is why I heart the books so damn much. The first two movies were amazing; after that...forget it. :roll:

The style of Harry Potter movies changed. Earlier it was like wow, the magical world with magic in it's magical being. But now it's like teenage life with magic. I think it changed partially because Harry officially enters puberty and because it symbolizes the return of the Dark Lord (I hope there's no more need for spoilers :/).

When they are on the bridge at Hogwarts, and Hermione is telling Harry she is scared for him. That was such a H/Hr ship thing. Obvious.

Apart from the H/Hr shipping, I liked it, although I missed SPEW :(

Lol, I almost forgot all about SPEW, i'm kinda glad to get rid of it lol, but yea this movie did lack something, I'm not sure what it was, it just didnt seem to be as great as it could have been. With that being said, I have watched it like 20 times lol.
In case your wondering.....Yes I am better than you

I think the best way to answer the question would be: If you were not reading the books and only watching the movies it was really good, but if you aere also reading the books it is very disappointing since there is way too many differences. I know people who are only watching the movies and they liked it a lot even saying it was the best.

I read the book after the movie....

I don't mind the things they took out.....sure, they left quite a lot...but, it made a great movie.

People say that this is the best film of the series, but I don't think so. During the scene where they have to do the final tournament, idk why, but I found it a bit boring.

Maybe it was just Cedric's presence the entire time during the movie. I think they focused so much on Robert's character because they knew he was supposed to be a character in Twilight. If they focused that much attention on the other, IMPORTANT minor characters throughout the series, then I'd be much more satisfied.

They left out and changed too much,and the crouch/crouch jnr storyline should have been in there,it was one of the main plots of the book and a better story than what we got.

Re: Who thinks Goblet Of Fire is disappointing?

To me the Dumbledore Pensieve scene, along with the Harry's dream scenes were highly disappointing, and not how they were in the book at all. You miss out on crucial information, because they didn't include certain parts in the movie. Also not to have Bill be in it or HBP was highly disappointing and makes it really awkared watching the scene where he was introduced in DH Part 1.It's like come on I have known and was introduced to Bill Weasley since book four, and we don't see him in film form until movie seven. I also didn't like the shouting Dumbledore, when Dumbledore is a calm and wise wizard. Like others have said the Moody tongue thing annoyed me too.

Re: Who thinks Goblet Of Fire is disappointing?

But it is worse for Charlie Weasley who didn't appear at all in any of the movies. Granted he wasn't in the books much either but for people who watched the films only and not read the books, they would think the Weasley family in the films are all there is - Arthur, Molly, Bill, Percy, Fred, George, Ron, Ginny. Which sucks and I would have liked if Charlie had appeared in GOF (or at least the wedding scene in DH1) to complete the family picture.

That is so true. It was ever so disappointing to not see the less talked about Weasleys. It would've been cool to see him involved with the Dragon Camp scene like he is in the book.

Re: Who thinks Goblet Of Fire is disappointing?

What was with the part where Karkaroff goes into the Hall and closes the door? Why was Crouch Jnr sticking out his tongue like a lizard?
Barty Crouch just shows up dead out of nowhere is really confusing.
This film made no sense whatsoever .

Re: Who thinks Goblet Of Fire is disappointing?

The fourth book is much bigger than the first three so what people are saying maybe it should've been split into two movies like the last one. Quidditch match should've been shown in GoF part 1.

:lol: I have got a book about Order of The Phoenix movie and Nigel is called Colin.
