Welcome to Harry Potter Forum! Below you will find many interesting threads and discussions. Enjoy.
So it was my 18th today and yesterday, after I came home from work I was treated to the most amazing surprise party ever. My friends basically decorated my whole back patio in all things Harry Potter. They made signs, logos of all the houses, hung web around the place, put candles everywhere, someone made a snitch, a quaffle and two bludgers, they made butterbeer and they all dressed up as Harry Potter characters, it just goes on. It was just so amazing and I had to share it with all of you. I was so shocked by the extent they had gone to. It was beautiful.
I wouldn't say it is. Everything that we see before the game begins is an absolute necessity to the story and to the set up of this revolution that's on the brink of happening. I think perhaps a reason people might find it slow is because everyone is just waiting for the games; that is the big event that everyone wants to see.
All the stuff before the games impressed me so much. There was not one scene that had no reason to be there. Literally everything was necessary and Francis Lawrence developed the world and the imminent uprising so perfectly in my opinion. I wouldn't say it's slow, it's just not as fast paced as the games and rightly so, it shouldn't be.
