Somewhat disappointing. They left alot undone. Many loose ends. The plot was almost choppy. Somewhat hit and miss. Not a bad movie, but not REALLY well done, either.

I couldn't agree with you more...

they could have added a whole half hour too the movie where they could've added some key stuff i feel they missed.

Like the fact that there is no quiditch at all, that was a "big" part in the book IMO. And they missed a LOT in the Department of Mysteries. But I guess thats just what you get when you have a 700pg book, and try and make a 2 hour movie out of it

Wow, expert at Bonnes and HP... A man after my own heart... luckily I'm macho and secure. I just love Harry Potter

Agreed, but actually they're probably not going to be putting Quidditch in any further movies. First, cause they will want to use more of the budget elsewhere, and second, Jo already admitted that she feels like she shot herself in the foot by creating Quidditch. She didn't expect it to get so big and she got real tired of it. Incidentally there will be no Quidditch in book 7 from my understanding.

Wow, well I guess I'll be ready for a letdown when Kim and I go see it tomorrow afternoon. Kim wanted to go see it in IMAX, I'm kinda glad I passed on that (I wasn't up for driving two hour just to see a movie.) After the first two movies, my expectations were pretty high when Prisoner of Azkaban was released, which I found to be dissapointing...so I shouldn't be surprised. Some things in books like this don't translate well to the silver screen.

I guess I'll just keep waiting for the last book to show up on the front porch. At least I know that will not be a dissapointment.

Ah, the unwashed masses. The Harry Potter books have the one thing the Transformers (and other such cartoons) will never have...a decent author comming up with the material. I started reading them because my daughter was hooked on them. (you know, parental oversight in action) I found them to be a lot like reading J.R.R.Tolkien, but not so hard on the brain. When Prisoner of Azkaban came out, a fight ensued as to who got first crack at reading it ("Hey, who swiped my bookmark!!!"). I had to order two copies of new releases ever since to ensure domestic tranquility.

Went to the movies last night. I wanted to see 1408. Didn't show for another couple hours. Neither did Transformers. So we went for Harry Potter. It was OK. I hadn't seen a HP movie in years, so took some time to remember who everyone was. I haven't seen the fourth movie, so I was kinda left hanging at the beginning. But it did end kinda suddenly, I totally expected another at least 30 minutes.
