I won't say one thing I'll say several.
1) The graphics were amazing
2) Voldemort was scary
3) David Tennant kicked a** as Barty Jr.
4) Yule Ball was beautiful
5) Several hilarious scenes
6) Loved the graveyard scene

Well said. I feel the same way about Columbus. I was in awe when I saw the first movie. He laid a beautiful framework for the continuation of the series.

I fear he is a very reluctant action hero. He admits he's not a very good swimmer and he was pretty terrified during that 40 foot drop down the side of the roof. But for carrying it through. The mark of a true actor.

His scene with Cedric's body after returning to Hogwart's was award material.
That (and a box of Kleenex) says it all.

The scenes during the ball were priceless. Reminds me of prom nite; they were so true to life. The humor came from life and life's mistakes and growing up; not from fat ladies and ugly shrunken heads. The movie was majick. Not because of witches and wizards; but because it was about growing up and the choices that have to be made; it was about who your friends are and how hard it is to keep them, and that sometimes you lose one through no fault of yours.
Well said. I'm goosebumping here.

There were a few nitpickey things wrong with the movie, but that's all they were ... nitpickey. I won't let them ruin my enjoyment of what is a wonderful movie on so many levels. How often do you get a great movie that encompasses action, adventure, mystery, fear, fantasy, love, hate, comedy, confusion, and facing your worst nightmare. I was on an emotional roller coaster with this movie and I'm looking forward to the ride for a third time.

Harry's return from the graveyard. When this film wants to tear out your heart, rip into tiny little pieces and make you feel extremely sad about it, it does exactly that.

I really enjoyed it. Like several other people here, I thought that the scene where Harry returns to the maze was really good.

Some little things that I were really glad they put in were: the Potter Stinks badges - they looked so fantastic. Also, in the book Viktor Krum is described as being slightly duckfooted and more unco-ordinated while on the ground; there is a scene down by the lake where he walks past the trio (followed by giggling girls), and he did look slightly duckfooted.

The maze was very effective. They did well to lose the critters. Newll isn't Hitchcock by a long chalk, but he made good use of the claustrophobic feel of a maze (they always creep me out). Good use of sound too.

Newell is the first director to make proper use of Fred and George. They were actually funny in this one.

Umm ... Ralph Fiennes was a good Voldemort.

The CGI was impressive.

An accurate looking You Know Who! He looked really good (Especially after the whole werewolf incident)

The Yule Ball set was very pretty

Fred and George were wicked funny... love them!

It made me cry for the whole movie, which I guess is good

i love the segment on the second task, whether if it's in the movie or in the book. to have harry be the first one there and him wanting to save them all even if it wasn't his to save was i think very noble.

Actually, the part of the 2nd task that I liked was the modification. When assaulted by Grindylows, Harry flings Ron and Gabrielle to safety and allows himself to be overwhelmed. This touched upon the theme of good people being willing to sacrifice themselves to save others, which is present throughout the series. It got some emphasis in both PSS and PoA, and it is possible that people will start to notice that.

At the end, we might very well view that and Lupin's lines to Harry in PoA as foreshadowing for the final resolution.

I agree. It connects to the A plot because Lily and James did the same for him.

I also posted a simliar reason for liking the way the maze was adapted in the "bolder" thread (which you responded to). I like how they showed Cedric becoming aggressive in the maze, and Harry hesitating to save him. It showed that in times in desperation, it can turn into "every man for himself", and the evil side of human nature takes shape. And who is the ultimate symbol of this? Voldemort.

It's interesting how the 2nd and 3rd task were both able to make a profound connection like that.

The graveyard scene as well as the tasks (mainly 1st and 2nd) were great.

I have to say, seeing as I just saw it... from all the reviews/posts about it I was expecting to be dissapointed, seeing as most of the book I'd say is left out...but I was WRONG!
It is my favorite movie, and I'm going to see it a few more times before it stops showing at the cinemas... I'm not going to say anything about the actual movie, because anyone who's seen it already knows, and anyone who hasn't, NEEDS TO A.S.A.P.!!!!!!

I thought the part when Harry was talking to Hermione about Viktor was quite funny.

Hermione: Well, Viktor and I don't talk much at all, actually... he's more of a... physical being...

The implied inuendo by the look on Harry's face was hilarious.

Also, the part when Cedric was bought back to Hogwarts was very well done. My friend beside me was bawling her eyes out and I was a bit choked up. I think that scene made the film.

1. I'd never felt the sadness of Cedric's death nor Harry's parents reappearance in "ghost" form from the book but the movie made it real for me and made me emotional. When I saw PoA, I cringed at the bad crying performance that Dan Radcliffe gave.
2. Fred and George finally get to be Fred and George.
3. More to giggle about in the movie which was great. I always get a giggle when I read the books so it's good that the movie did the same.
