It's been *quite* manic lately, hence my absence from posting-land. Will explain more later.
Saw GOBLET OF FIRE.
Wow wow wow wow wow. Best movie of the series, even though it's less...visually artistic...in a few ways than Prisoner.
Book 4 has been my favorite of the series thus far - although, upon re-reading Half Blood Prince it might might might move to second.
They did a FANTASTIC job cutting this huge book down into an extremely well-paced (except for the beginning bits, but more on that later) film.
Things that were cut were cut for a reason, more or less - or at least, they weren't the glaring ommission that the whole lack of backstory for the Marauder's Map was in Prisoner of Azkaban.
More detailed Bronte-JD-style Movie Review(tm) shortly (have tons of school work to do)!
