So there's my contribution.
Have you seen "Glory"? If not put it on your queue.
Good point, I've seen Glory, it was fantastic. It was just so long ago I forgot all about it. Saw it back in the VHS stone age.
Glory was excellent - so were The Hurricane and Crimson Tide.
We also went to see Goblet this W/E and it was sold out - thankfully it was multi-google-plex that had it showing every 20 minutes.
Golbet was pretty good. I've said this before but Hermione is going to be a real babe in 5 years and it makes me uncomfortable looking at her now and knowing that she's only like 14.
It was a well done, fast paced movie. Potter fans are going to complain about all the cutting that they had to do - entire characters are missing from the story. The only solution though is to make it two movies or hit Rowling on the head with a brick when she gets up to page 300 or so.
The holdover cast from the original movie is superb. The new characters are not as good. Cho Chang and the French girl are not nearly good looking enough and Mad-eye looks a little ridiculous. Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort more than make up for it though.
Overall this Potter fan gives it 7/10
