It bugged me too, to a point where it actually became annoying. I mean, were they trying to make him a lizard or something?

I mounted the DVD image, navigated to the beginning of the scene, noted the timestamp, fast forwarded to the end of the scene, noted that timestamp and subtracted. It took all of two minutes. I knew the scene was longer than 2 or 3 minutes so I decided to make note of the exact time and correct yoshi.

We should have seen Crouch from behind only at the QWC, and we should have first seen Crouch's face and tongue-flick in Dumbledore's pensieve. Then as Moody ushers Harry into the maze we should have seen him flick his tongue, just once, as if he's struggling to control his joy at his mission being completed. Newell's way made it far too obvious who Moody was, as soon as Crouch Sr was murdered it was clear, and it just made Dumbledore look even more stupid when there was a twitch like that staring him in the face for a year, even more so after he mentions he's been searching for 'a small detail' to explain everything. I'd be surprised if anyone in the audience didn't know what was coming when Moody's Polyjuice started to wear off.
I'd have replaced Crouch with Bellatrix, really.
Kloves made the Crouch storyline mean nothing.
The Crouch Family is in the book for we're supposed to see how crude and badly-handed was the Ministry 15 years previously, and how some men would sentence their own son to death for gaining power.
But since we have nothing from that in the movie, one could just erase the whole thing.
It made just GoF heavy with characters who come and go, and you just get the idea that prisoners escape from Azkaban all the time and no one realizes it.

Re: What annoyed you most about GOF v3

What bugged me the most about it was that so much was cut. I mean, it really isn't said the Crouch dies, and you don't even see him as a bone. Also, what bugged me it that... It was Dobbyless

Re: What annoyed you most about GOF v3

I really don't like Dumbledore in this film. He annoys me so much- I mean why would Dumbledore grab the front of Harry's robes and scream in his face?

Yes, no Dobby was quite disappointing.

To underline the intensity of the situation and impress on the viewer how urgent and serious it is. It's a cinematic device, and I think the film needed that.

With Deathly Hallows comming I can only think of reasons they should have incuded him. It would have helped develop this character with whom now they will have to invent something to refreshen the memory of movie fans.

Re: What annoyed you most about GOF v3

Oh anyway, I forgot to mention the things that annoyed me the most:
The Crouch storyline and the Second Task.

Re: What annoyed you most about GOF v3

I'm gonna get killed for this, but...

David Tennant...



Much as I adore him, he is not Barty CrouchJr, any more than Trigger from Only Fools and Horses (Roger Lloyd Pack?) is Barty Crouch Sr...they are both so wrong, I think...

seeing the above post made me remember that

Re: What annoyed you most about GOF v3

Its a small thing, and not really related to the books, but did all the guys in the movie just decide they weren't gonna get hair cuts that year? I mean I like long hair on some of them but but all of them got of control that year.

I really like Harry´s hair in Goblet, it matches more the image I have of Harry, untidy hair like he wears it in Goblet.
I do think the rest should have had a haircut, but I dont mind they didn´t.

I agree . Harry's haircut in GoF matches more JK Rowling's description, I like it too. In general haircut isn't what bothers me in the movies.

Re: What annoyed you most about GOF v3

A lot of things annoyed me:

- "I love magic!"

- "DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?! (shove into table)"

- Moody's portrayal (to me) almost as an alcoholic.

- Neville's face.

- Cho's accent.

- Ron and Harry's almost homoerotic scene when Ron asks how Harry put his name in the Goblet. "I don't know what happened last night, and I don't know why. It just did, okay?" Then Ron sighs and rolls over on his bed with a sad face, "**** off.."

- The meant-to-be-comical scene where Snape catches Ron and Harry talking when Ron asks Hermione to go to the ball, and Snape smacks them on the back of their heads with a book. Then pulls up his sleeves to grab their necks after he catches them talking again.

- Cedric seeming like a typical popular, arrogant boy. Laughing while his friends badgered Harry with their "POTTER STICKS" badges, when Harry was about to tip Cedric off about the dragons.

That's not including my complete disappointment of Voldemort's character when he finally reappeared in full form. I still feel they could have made his face seem more sinister and evil.

Re: What annoyed you most about GOF v3

Monkey, he was constantly drinking Polyjuice Potion to remain in full form. From a mainstream audience, I suppose I could see what you mean, but it makes sense if you look at how often he would have had to drink from his stores throughout the year.
