Goblet of Fire, movie review

I do enjoy being off when movies open. That meant I could get home at 4am and still get a solid eight hours of sleep. I feel rather yummy, actually.

But you don't care about that! Let's talk the GoF movie.

First, in the previews, I don't think I've ever seen a trailer get a bigger and better response than Hoodwinked. That's definitely on my to-see list.

I think GoF is a very good effort, and for the first time, the comic pacing is absolutely dead on for a Rowling book. Performances are good. What's skipped this time is less substantive to the plot than what was skipped in PoA, but still irritating, though not the most irritating thing (which will be under the cut). Ron's dress robes are sufficiently horrid.
