nekosasori said:www.rottentomatoes.com rates it highly, as do I - this one was far more cohesive as a film (as opposed to just visually rendering the book). I preferred Cuaron's direction, and the book it was based on was also darker (and Radcliffe's favourite, as well).
So BuSmo, I personally recommend it strongly. Saw it last week when it opened earlier over on this side of the Atlantic.
nekosasori said:Hmm, well I was disappointed in Cho in book 5 (and of course was upset with the death at the end ;_; ) - probably my favourite so far is the fourth book, although the third comes close.
The whole premise of Harry didn't seem particularly original to me (too Dickensian, really) - until the twist with Neville came about. I also like how realistically adolescent the characters are being portrayed with each book. Of course, the films really have to strip out a lot of the subplot threads in order to fit into a reasonable length, but Cuaron nicely balanced the special effects with character interaction and development, and I've also heard that he picked up on even the unpublished outcomes and hinted at them in the film.
splice said:Considering rottentomatoes lists 157 positive reviews versus 20 negative ones, the feelings aren't that mixed as far as movie reviewers go. I'm watching the movie right now, and it definitely is better than the first two. Worth seeing. I'd say more, but the hundreds of reviewers do a better job than me, so just head over to rottentomatoes and read the reviews.
