I was just happy that I saw Sir Cadogan the second time.  He was awesome.

I so have to see this movie at least one more time.

I was very sad about this movie. Sad doesn't describe it well enough; I was fuming with rage during the movie and after I was consequently sad.

There was so much left out! I understand this has to happen, so that wasn't a big deal to me. The part that fumes me is when they change this from what they are in the book. Like the clock tower addition (yes, I know Rowling approved that) and the court yard being added when you walk out of the front gates of the castle. What the hey was that about?

I don't thinks this was a very good movie, mainly, because it's plot does not flow well. Too many things were unexplained. For one, the whole Hogsmead thing. It was hinted at with the note in the opening sequence, but never developed to connect with the actual going to Hogsmead thing (yes, I know HP asks Mcgonagal if she can sign it, but it wasn't a very well developed connection.). Then of course, Hogsmead wasn't explained at all. Like only third years and up got to go, and that it was a huge deal to harry that he couldn't go.

Changes! Ergh, changes. Why does Harry put on his cloke to go listen in on Mcgonagal talking about his parents. Why couldn't they have gone and had their butterbear and overheard it in the bar? What is so much more difficult about doing that than changing the whole thing around?

I have no problem with changes and cuts that don't effect the flow of the plot, make chronological sense, and make time constraint sense. I don't, however, see the reason the screen writer and director decided to make chages that fit none of the above. I don't think the screen play was written well, not from a writes point of view, lack of development and flow (did I say that already? Sorry if I did...)

On good notes. I like the new director's style. It sadened me, however, that it was the same screen writer for all three movies, and he managed to botch this one up so badly. I would think the idea of continuity should last through these movies, even if a fresh director is needed for each. On that, (back to the negative...) should have had some costume consitency! Minor things like that could be seen as artistic self representation, but why change a good thing? Especially one so minor, but lends to the continuity of the three movies so well.

The main three actors got soooo much better! They are deffinitly learning well.

By the way, who was that fella who was next to Malfoy (on his right, our left) right before he was punched by Herminoie? Crabbe or Goyle was on his other side, but the other was not either of them. Just wondering, i'd have to reread that section to clarify, but I was pretty sure crabbe goyle and Malfoy were inseperable.

I was very sad the floating head thing was cut from the snow ball fight section. That was one thing I was really looking forward to.

Ah well....

So out of 5 stars, I will give in three, first because it is Harry Potter, and no matter how much I disagree with the way it was done, it was done and not totally kaboshed. Two, they havn't had to switch out actors in lead roles (minus one, but can't blame death) (when they get a new harry/ron/hermionie that is when i am done. By the way, Emmma is not confirming film five like the rest of the cast, seems to she a shrewd business girl  ) And finally, soundtrack was awsome (dispite the soemthing wicked this way comes empathisis, seeing that was a pure creation, loved the jazzy knightbus tune)

*deep breath*

I will go see it again. For reanalysis 

Best to All moviegoers!

i bought the score tuesday !! i love it ! it was composed by john williams, it's great ! I particullary like "lumos" (the 1st track) and of course "double trouble" (the 5th)-> brilliant ! The "buckbeack's flight" makes me thing about "E.T." :p logical, it is also John Williams, but, not bad ! But the score is really good, a little bit "middle age-ish"  like it !

(still 1 exam !!! yeah !! the holidays are very close  )

Yes! The soundtrack is indeed awesome!! I must say John Williams rather outdid himself on this soundtrack. It's different than the first two (though Hedwig's Theme remains rather constant throughout), but different in a nice way. I really like the Medieval themes.

Rather than the hedwig theme as in the first two, the double trouble theme is prevailent in this soundtrack. I really like the jazzy feel of the knight bus song (did I say that already?) Ah well...it's cool.

Finally saw the movie yesterday and I absolutely loved it! I thought it was by far the best of the three.

I watched the movie... and i was disappointed! So many parts of the book are skipped.
But on a happier note, I find it was a bit more mature in the atmosphere and all... not as much "childish" as the other!  let's say it was a good movie! but not a very good one...

I just finished reading the 3rd book again, just to refresh my memory on everything. And while there were quite a few (subtle) changes from book to film, there weren't all that many major ones. Not as many as people are making there out to be. After reading the book again, though I am reminded of which scenes I would have liked to have seen done differently, I'm still not disappointed in the movie; I think it came out good.

i did actually love the movie, despite the amount of complaints i have about it lol

what i liked....
- daniel radcliffe acted well compared to his last two... well... bad performances, he significantly improved this time
- emma watson was great as hermione, as in the last two
- ron was really funny; in the last two, it was sometimes a bit cheesy - but in this film he was funny, and looked a lot better
- malfoy looked attractive in an odd kind of way.. despite the greasy bleached hair
urm yeah in general, better acting
- i thought the marauders map was done well
- i liked the attention to detail, like showing nature inbetween scenes
-the time turner part worked effectively
- buckbeak looked really good, i thought that maybe it would look unrealistic and tacky, but it was pulled off well


and.. the not so good - may be *SPOILERS*
by the way - i do love the movie, but there were a lot of changes, (which i appreciate some were necessary)
- i thought that aunt marge blowing up looked a little... well silly, but i suppose things like that just work better in a book than on film
- the knight bus was okay apart from when it squeezed between the double deckers..
- those heads? what were they? i dont recall them from the books
- the whole castle changed. i think the castle itself was fine, but just a massive change from the last two, i wish it had been more consistant, it felt like a different place
- trelawney was a bit over the top
- i wish that the shreiking shack had been longer. in the book there is a lot of explanation in that scene, but i felt that it was too rushed
- i wish they had included malfoy and co on the quidditch pitch! in the book i thought it was really funny, shame it wasnt there
- they never explained the marauders.. other people that have seen the film and not read the book seemed confused as to how lupin and sirius knew eachother
- it sounded almost as though lupin and lily had something going on
- why was hagrids hut and the forest on the side of a huge hill? massive change from the last two
- i think it should have been more clear that malfoy was being pathetic to try to get hagrid into trouble.. WAY too many non book readers have said "i was disappointed that malfoy was a wimp" and im like "arghhhh it was INTENTIONAL" (well apart from the end)
-it didnt flow as well as the others

i appreciate that they had to cut it short, but i think that just the odd extra minutes with a bit of explanation would have helped a lot

urm ok i think ill stop now, nobody will read it, its too long lol

yeah just to clarify, im not critisising, just.... pointing out things

but anyone who hasnt seen it - you should, its great

NERD ALERT: One of my friends turns out to be Tom Felton's step cousin! i'm currently very very very very very jealous... but i know that now i have connections! i feel proud to be a nerd!

on another note... i was disappointed by the movie. i think i was expecting too much because it had been inflated to such high status. i have a theory though: the more i see it, the more i'll like it. i was too preoccupied in picking out all the faults to see the good bits. i can't wait to see the animal-noises-sweets scene again

I'm going to see it again on Sunday. Whee! I gotta watch out for Sir Cadogen.

Your friend is his step-cousin? How cool is that! I'm jealous, too!
