  • Re: Is there anyone who genuinely dislikes Goblet of Fire?

    I wouldn‘t say I dislike it but I have a number of problems with it : the over-the-top acting, the poor characterisations (the Caricatures of the Crouch’s, Dumbledore, the non-characters of Krum and Fleur), the fact that ideas and plots were introduced and then fell by the wayside (Rita Skeeter for example), the first 15-20 minutes just feel so rushed by - there’s no rhythm, Newell traded some of the most interesting moments in the book for much limper ideas - Crouch’s death of a terrified man escaping dark forces was reworked to a generic body shot, Crouch Jr’s trial was a joke. I was never a big fan of Doyle’s score because, to my ears, it lacked subtlety noticeably when bombastic, dramatic music would play for every low beat of the film and I think the photography of the film is just too, uh, bland looking.


    Bland looking? Isn't that was OOTP is ever so often called? The colour pallete for that is absolutely atrocious.

    So we can't hate on GOF, but you can hate on OOTP... as usual.. Typical
