Been to see it, and i havent read through all of the opinions on here, but i get the feelibng everyone loved it, so i'm going to be different!
I'm not saying it's a bad film, in fact i thought it was better than the other two, but my favourite book being Prisoner of Azkaban i was a little dissapointed, but only because it didnt stick to the book, which is what the director wanted to do apparently!
But i do recommend people to go and see it, but dont go in with expectations that it will be on the same lines as the other 2, i think it is less of a kids film, so no more escaping to childhood for the adults!
I went to see the film on the opening day (31st May), but must admit I was disappointed that some things had been changed. The dementors weren't as I had imagined them, for example. The special effects were excellent though and I did enjoy it (but why does it make you need the loo?!!)
I suppose I just love the books so much that I don't see the need to change them. Can't wait for Book 6. By the way, I read somewhere that the 'Goblet of Fire' film is due for release in November 2005.
i went to see it today but it was fully booked- ruddy kiddiwinkles and their half terms!! so my friend lent me the book instead, which i just read while at work in my slippers who are called jill and jen.
Much the best of the films so far. I don't think the changes from the book were too bad and the child actors had improved a lot. How are they ever going to make a film of the fifth book in less than 4 hours?
