So I waited in line, and then got great seats. When I got my ticket at the automated thingie I found one stuck to the side of the machine for tomorrow at 10:30pm. I could go again for free.
No previews for the imax version i guess.
OMGWTF Barty Crouch was in the first scenes with Voldemort & Wormtail & FrankBryce. So all these people who paid and read the books, walk in, sit down, and go WTF who is this fucker? And I realized, Barty Crouch JR.
The rest of Harry's dream/first scene was normal. Harry wakes up at the Weasleys and off they go to the Portkey. Cedric pounces out of a tree and greets them. Ginny and Hermione swoon. The Portkey process was neat. Everyone enters the QWC camp and its like a thoroughfair and Harry goggles as he enteres the Weasleys tent. Cut to the Quidditch stands, the weasleys are climbing to the top, but they get snubbed by the malfoys who are sitting in the ministers box. Apparently the Weasley sit in the very very very tip top seats, not in the box. The Quidditch teams fly out, Irish showing their leprachaun, Bulgarians showing Krum. Cut to AFTER the match in the Weasley tent.
NO QUIDDITCH WORLD CUP FOOTAGE.
I was really pissed about that. The Weasleys are in the tent talking about the match, slashy moment of Ron half swooning over Krum and Harry and the twins picking on him for it. Mr. Weasley tells them they have to leave, they leave the tent to a crowd panicced. Harry gets swept off in the crowd and knocked out, wakes up with EVERY tent burned to the ground, not a soul around and he's pretty much unharmed. We see Barty Crouch Jr. (BCJ) cast morsmordre and Harry sees him but not his face. Hermione and Ron run up to Harry, the aurors pounce before Mr. W innterupts explaining their kids and all is set right.
Scene on the train with Harry smiling at Cho, Hermione complaining about the Prophet.
At school, like I thought, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang show up on the first day and the tournament starts the first day. We see Karkaroff look sneaky and enter the great hall to be creepy and make us think he fiddles with the cup. Cut to the next day Cedric puts his name in the cup. The Weasley twins try, grow beards and

Cruciatus to 'torture' Neville. AND OMG Since when is Hermione VULNERABLE when just TALKING about spells? They made her all whimpery and afraid to talk about Avada Kedavra.

Cut to Beaubaxton and Durmstrang vehicles leaving.
And thats the end.
NOW, On to my thoughts.
The first 15-20 minutes were horrible. They were choppy and rushed, and OMG NO Quidditch! None at ALL. They made a huge mistake by bypassing that. No Winky/top box either. No Forest scene with the trio.
The tournament beginning was fine. Moodys entrance stunk, sort of.
No Spew AT ALL.
I liked the amount of Neville, and how he was in this movie more.
There were a LOT of slahy moments between Harry and Ron and it was a pretty slashy movie.
The first 2/3s of the movie were hilarious. REALLY funny.
I didn't like how in this movie you didn't really get to know Cedric. He was just sort of there, an aquaintence. In the books you got to know him and thats why his death is so wrenching. JK also makes him out to be pretty nice and gentle. Sort of pure and innocent in the book. In this movie, I felt he was sort of defiled when he became like a glory hound during the last part of the third task.
The scenes in the Graveyard were amazing. That scene was the best played scene in relation to the book, ever. It lived up to the book to the fullest.
The actor who played Voldie ROCKS. It was really great seeing Vold come alive, because when you read the books he's just this evil mean force, but in the movies your really get to see that he really is just a person. He still walks and talks like normal people, he's just a bit mutated. It was nice to see Voldie come to life. That whole scene, and the actor, proved that in the end Voldemort is just human and in the end he might die like a human.
It was interesting.
Most of the scenes lived up, I was REALLY mad about the BCJ begninning scene and the no quidditch, It was dissappointing.
Also, Emma Watson can't act. In this movie, Hermione has four roles/faces, pissy - vulnerable - nice friend - and swoony girl. Emma Watson also makes Hermione into this real timid/wimpery girlyish girl, which is really untrue to the character.
Dan has come SO far. A few times I was like, 'Oh he did so good!' He still needs to learn how to cry though.
Rupert did marvelous, I loved the hurt Ron. Rupert just *is* Ron, he really became Ron for me in this movie, he's like achieved the goal of being the character. Dan doesn't have it down perfectly, Rupert does. By movie 6 Dan will *be* Harry, but for now he's better than he was. Emma I doubt will ever really get/be Hermione, but I hope she does.
This movie was really good.
The movies out of 10:
Philospers/Sorceres Stone: 6 1/2
Chamber of Secrets: 4 1/2
Prisoner of Azkaban: 8
Goblet of Fire: 9 1/2
Overall, it was kinda awesome. :)
I might talk about this movie more tomorrow, but for now I am *Dead* TIRED. And sorry about the typos/grammar/and caps errors, it's 4:45 and I'm exhausted, I've been typing this for an hour and 45 minutes. *sigh*
