Re: What annoyed you most about GOF v3

The general direction of the film. Mike Newell dropped the ball on this film. He has the wrong style for Harry Potter, and didn't understand the book. I can respect him wanting to bring a more traditional British Boarding school feel to Hogwarts, but he drained all the magic. And with all respect to Newell and his vision, but Hogwarts is far from a traditional boarding school.

Also, the editing and pacing had issues. Something was definitely wrong with the pacing. I can't quite put my finger on exactly what it is, but when I watch the movie the pacing is off in some way. It feels like a bunch of scenes stuck together with no real glue holding it together. The worst being how fast we travel from the Second Task to the Third task. It feels like they ran out of time, and went "oh **** we are out of time we better wrap this thing up!" There isn't a clear three act structure. And if there is, it isnt strong at all.
