I thought I'd start this one. We are in-between movies, but as we get ready for #5, it's probably time to re-watch, continue discussions, regrets about changes and story lines lost, as well as hopes for the next installment.

Emma doesn't have bushy hair. That has always bugged me. Hermione has bushy hair, darnit!

Yeah! Stop blow-drying your hair, Emma! Do you think Hermione bothers blowing her hair out? I reckon a quick drying charm and she's out the door.

I'm all in favour of method acting when it comes to hair.

I hate the broken way that everyone spoke in in the last movie. It was a film full of William Shatners. That, and Hermione crying all the time. She doesn't cry all the time! Lavender would! Bah!

Which is all part of book!Hermione's charm. Flying the flag for plain girls with unmanageable hair. Woo hoo!

It can't be helped that Emma Watson is very pretty. But they could do something about her hair.

I may be remembering this totally wrong, but I seem to recall that Dan Radcliffe had a problem with contacts. Allergic reaction or something. Anyone else remember this?

Yes, I do. I think they tried the contacts for the first movie and it didn't work out. Then they thought about computer alteration but that didn't look right. So we have a blue eyed Harry. It really doesn't bother me because I just don't notice it too much.

Oh, I'm sure I can find something to complain about.

Um. Yeah, Hermione's totally not right. And Ron's not that much of a dweeb. And book!Harry is much more likeable.

They got Voldy right, at least. And I hold out hope for an ideal Umbridge.

Yes, I think sometimes they have done a better job with the "little" characters. Trelawney was wonderful, as is Filch. Whoever was cast for Umbridge should have great fun!

I wish John Cleese's Sir Nicholas wasn't so poorly done. He seems so stiff and throws his lines away. I know he's having to work with a blue screen and is not interacting with the actors in the scene when it is filmed, but I find him distracting. Hmmm... he wasn't in GoF was he? I can't remember.

Kenneth Branagh and Jason Isaacs were downright brilliant!

I think the smaller character roles are easier to play up to. How good was Thewlis though? Yummy. - Oops, where did that come from?

Indeed. But seriously, lose the moustache! I think it's very important that the character of Lupin is moustache-free. Purely in the interests of remaining as faithful as possible to the books, of course.

I'm sorta-relieved to share my grief with people who feel the same.

I'd like to give a summary of Hermione's lines in the GOF film:
HERMIONE: I'm SCARED for you Harry!!
(moves to his left)
HERMIONE: I'm QUITE SCARED for you!!
(comes in from above)
HERMIONE: Oh, Harry, I'm SCARED for you!!

...you get the idea.

My favorite film still remains to be PoA. It was so gorgeous, the character development was really strong -- except Ron :\ -- but overall I loved the look and feel.

And yes, I agree, Newguise, that Thewlis = yumtastic. :D ;)

Perfectly good opportunities may be wasted on selfish whims, even if those whims are subconscious.
