Goblet of FireWatched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire tonight. It was a fun nite out with my flat mates. Satisfied our cravings for fast food after watching Supersize Me a few weeks ago. We had diner at Mc Donalds. It wasn't that satisfying actually.
What I think of the movie? I thought the child actors and actresses have all grown up and can act so much better now. The movie was actually much better than I had expected. The previous movies were such disappointment. I guess movies almost always never do justice to the books. Many parts were not included. And I thought Hermionee straightened her hair for the Yule Ball. How can they forget about that. Victor Krum and Fleur were not what I had imagined them to be. Some parts were cheesier than the books. Gosh, am I being over critical? I guess it is because Goblet of Fire is my fave book of all the Harry Potter books.
I remember the first time I saw my younger cousins reading the first Harry Potter book, I just thought to myself that it really is not my kinda book. It probably is very kiddish. But then I started reading and I was hooked and had to get my own copy of the book. The recent books have not met my expectations but I sure look forward to read the last book soon. And yes I do think Snape is a good guy and that Albus Dumbledore has a horocroux somewhere. The latter will probably come alive again like Gandalf in LOTR. It is a bit disappointing that the story line in the last book seem to have so much simmilarities to LOTR. The uniqueness of it all when it first started seem to be slowly losing some of its magical powers on me. But in spite of all these rants, I still love reading the books and hope JK Rowling will come up with an ending to remember for all of us !
