Rather disappointing if you ask me.
PoA was INCREDIBLY disappointing.
I get everything about how the movie can't be just like to book, but
my gosh stick to the storyline. Tell the same story. I don't think
the director, Alfonso Cuaron, cared about this movie fitting into the
rest of the series. He only put in what was immediatly important to
that one year at Hogwarts. What about the whole seven book plot.
There was not much mention of Voldemort.
AND Dumbldore.... Michael Gambon moved and spoke way too fast.
Dumbldore is a very old man weighted with many, many things. Also,
Gambon does not speak deliberatly and carefully as Dumbldore would.
It also would have been nice to see even a little more than 2 seconds
of Sir Codagan. The Trio could have went back to the dormitory at
least one more time to encounter him.
What is going on with Hermione's hair? It is supposed to be a big,
frizzy mess, isn't it? Well it is getting less fizzy with each movie.
What are they going to do in GoF when she puts tons of gel in it for
the Ball. (oh yeah probably just take to scene out)--said with
The ending was abousolutly appalling. To start the ending looked like
it belong to a stupid tween movie. (keyword: stupid). And secondly,
Harry is supposed to get the firebolt in to middle of the story and
then Mcgonagall was supposed to take it away, not the end.
On the other hand, I did like the fact that the obvious facts were not
beaten into us like the first two movies, but it is obvious that the
movies should grow with the characters.
I did think Gary Oldman was a fantastic Sirius and Peter Pettigrew
looked pretty similar to what i had imagined. But whoever played Lupin
just didn't do it for me. The personality and acting were good, it
was just how he looked was not what I had imagined at all. What was up
with the mustache?
Buckbeak was fantastic too.
Well you've all had enough of my opinion.
Oh one more thing. I LOVE the Trio. Diniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint,
and Emma Watson are absolutly perfect for their roles. I hope they do
all seven movies (probably won't, sadly though).
