Quidditch....That could have been the best part in the movie, but for some reason they cut it. Also the spinx should have been put in.

I was disappointed with how little they showed of the courtroom scene in the Pensieve. I wanted to see Bellatrix declaring her allegiance to the Dark Lord. I thought that was great in the book!

And the World Cup definitely! I'm a huge Quidditch fan and i really wanted to see that!

And i liked the part when Krum was asking Harry what was going on between him and Hermione, just before they found Crouch's body!

I'd have to say that I missed seeing the Dursley's bicker at Harry, but of course they had to make more time for the more important things and I completely understand that. I also would have liked to see some of the World Cup, because that scene could have been absolutley amazing But again, time is a factor and I glad they cut it.

I missed seeing SIRIUS!!! I really agree with that conversation they started on MuggleCast about how the directors of OotP are really going to have to establish Siriu's role more. How will the movie audience take his death if they barely know him as a character? By saying the 'movie audience' I'm referring to those people who don't read the books. Now that I'm slightly rambling I want to add in that when I went to see GoF with my best friend, who doesn't read the books, she was completely lost and asked an infinite amount of questions...I think in the future the directors should put more effort into making the plot line more indepth so that non-readers can understand it better.

Most of the obstacles in the maze. How on earth are man-eating bushes more challenging than dragons?

Erm...

Although I thoroughly enjoyed watching GoF and I feel that it's been the best HP movie yet, I also feel that it's the one they changed the most.

Good Changes:
I did like scenes with Fred and George, it was funny and true to their character.
Voldemort looked really good (although I think he would've been scarier, appearance-wise, if they gave him red eyes like in the book.) I didn't mind that they had Neville give Harry the gillyweed (it was what imposter Moody had intended from the beginning anyway) and I also didn't mind that they left out the house elves altogether. Because frankly, I couldn't imagine how annoying Winky would be on film.

Bad Changes:
Again, the directors and writers relied on the fact that every person seeing the film has read the books. In fact, there were quite a few scenes where I'm sure non HP readers were quite confused and lost. I didn't like the fact that they showed you Barty Croiuch Jr. right off the bat. It left all the mystery out of the story. There was very little character development for any of the characters other than Harry. They left the whole Rita is an unregistered animagus out of the plot (which I thought was important because it shows that it's not just Death Eaters that abuse their power/magic). And the one thing that I really didn't like was that there was nothing about Fred and George's joke shop in the film OR the fact that Harry gave them his triwizard winnings! Not cool! There joke shop, although, it isn't a big part of the plot is something that has followed through the folloing books after GoF. They focused on the scnen with the dragon too much when they could've worked on other parts of the story instead like the maze for example which wasn't nearly as interesting as in the book because there weren't any creatures in it!

Definitely the Parting of the Ways. Though I'm sure they'll find some way around it and set up the next movie properly, I think it was a really important scene to foreshadow what's coming next.

I actually really wanted to see the quidditch game, the whole rita seeker scandal, they didn't show the Crouch story well enough, and the magical creatures.

Great sig i_heart_dobby!!

I also missed the quidditch match & definately missed Sirius. Although I would have loved to see the Rita-Skeeter-as-a-bug storyline, I think that would have confused non-readers even more!! Maybe Hermione convinces her to write the story another way??

What I really missed though was something really little : ARCHIE at the Quidditch World Cup!!! I don't mean that they should have included the whole scene but if they had a guy in a long flowered nightdress walking through the crowd at the campsite it would have been SO funny & those who read the books would understand!!

The parting of the ways sequence and the whole Rita Skeeter Animagus thing, I think that is important because it sets up Harry's interview and the importance of having met Luna. So some of the next movies are not going to be as clear to people who havent read the books.

I think they'll leave out Hermione blackmailing Rita Skeeter and just have another reporter interview Harry. The reporter isn't as important as the fact that Harry actually gets his story out there. They might just have Luna get a journalist from the Quibbler to do the job.

Dragons in the maze? Don't think so! Blast-ended skrewts, giant spiders, freaky spells, but no dragons.

Oh yeaaaaaaaaaa...I'd forgotten about that. That was absolutley hilarious. But you know, with all those time contraints and so on there would have been no way in fitting it in. But I think they would have to show some of their inventions in the next movie, unless they plan on just throwing out the whole Joke Shop business which would be horrible because that's my favorite part of Ootp. Just finding out about all the diffrerent things that they came up with, and then testing them on first years. Just priceless.

Just saw the movie for the second time:

*It reinforces that I do not like the new Dumbledore - he does not stay, IMHO, close enough in personality to the Dumbledore in the books, the first guy was perfect. I wouldn't mind a swithch to the guy from LOTRs.

*Way too many liberities with the book - Ron saw the dragons, Dobby, etc. Stick to the text!

*I do like Bonnie as Ginny.

*Fred and George were better in this movie, despite the writes deviating from the book.

.
But they are not filming the book - they are filming the story. The difference is fundamental.

This is what the text literalists cannot or will not understand - hence their distress, anger and all the rest of it.

Definitely did not miss S.P.E.W.!!!! That was something I was praying they would leave out.....


I think I would have liked to seen the Hogwarts kitchen and all those house elves pushing food on Ron and Harry -

I missed the Dursley's, Dobby, and Winky. The Dursley's are the ones who like really complete the movie and balance it out, and it was supposed to be dobby who gives harry the gillyweed not Nevile. I also wanted to see what winky look like.
