Harry Potter

I went off to watch "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" at the cinema a few days ago, and I really liked it. This may be partly because I had relatively low expectations (I was disappointed by the third one, and sulkyblue said that she didn't think much of this one). They did miss out a couple of bits that I particularly liked from the book, and thus some supporting characters were reduced to cameos, but I can sympathise with the time constraints.

(For the record, my standard policy is that I don't think change is intrinsically bad; after all, I still have the original book to read. But I'm more critical of bad changes than I am of new ideas that don't work, because the writers don't have the excuse of "Hmm, I didn't think of that".)

Anyway, all in all I'm looking forward to the 5th film.

And now to bed - sitting cross-legged on concrete is less comfy than you might think :)
