    I wonder what he writes for a five star? I didn't read one bad thing about it in there. Perhaps my "English" isn't up to snuff.

    I bought mine at the theatre because I did not want to pay the fee on the website- but when we needed one more ticket we bought it at Fandango.com ($1.00 fee per ticket- pick up at the theatre)

    Check the theatre- I did not know about IMAX, so I bought at our local giant screen theatre, just went into the lobby and bought them there.

    I would have gone on the 18th but with work and commute, I would not make it , so I went for a cheaper matinee on Saturday.

    Re: First Review of "Goblet of Fire"

    That was a very odd review.

    The reviewer starts off by saying:

    Spoiler

    THE golden age of innocence at Hogwarts is over


    But then the rest of the review doesn't say why.

    Frankly I did not understand most of that review- maybe it's the culture differences?

    Re: First Review of "Goblet of Fire"

    Yes it does, and I think that's what he is complaining about. The age of innocence is over because the "sprigs" are now growing up and turning into every parents nightmare. I think he was also upset that they seem to spend more time worrying about dates to the Yule Ball than worrying about Harry's safety in the Tournament or Voldemort. That's his opinion.

    I am going with friends to see it on the 18th late at night so hopefully we won't have a theater full of screaming kids.

    If that's what the reviewer is complaining about then he should have done a book review not a movie review. That was the nature of the book, its an "end of innocence" chapter in the kids' lives. For them to have done differently in the movie would have been to stray far off the course of the book.

    Re: First Review of "Goblet of Fire"

    Someone want to explain it for me?

    muddy Glastonbury
    What is that?

    The irony is that our valiant trio are more terrified of securing a date for the Yule Ball at Hogwarts than they are tackling the latest dastardly threat to their potty lifestyle
    WTH is a "potty" lifestyle?

    The plot hinges on a famous Tri-Wizard Tournament. It’s an international wand-flexing competition starring the shapely girls from France, the Beauxbatons; and the butch Durmstrangs from Bulgaria.
    Butch? They're BOYS!

    The red-herrings are worth hanging on a wall. Brendan Gleeson’s Mad-Eye Moody is the latest loose cannon on the staff. It’s impossible to fault the shades; I’d like to bid for the marble eyeball.
    HUH?

    Re: First Review of "Goblet of Fire"

    I haven't the foggiest, either, Nephy. But maybe the internet can help.

    1. Well, the Durmstrang lot does look a lot tougher than the fey Hogwarts Boys.

    2. I found a definition of "potty." I don't think I can repeat it here. As decent as I can be, it has something to do with having lots of time on one's hands.

    3. Glastonbury is a town in England.
    from wiki:
    Glastonbury today is a centre for religious tourism and pilgrimmage. Strains of mysticism and paganism co-exist, not always easily, with followers of its Christian heritage. As with many towns of similar size, the centre is not as thriving as it once was but Glastonbury supports a remarkable number of 'New Age' or Alternative shops, often featuring crystals prominently among their wares. The outskirts of the town boast DIY shops and the slow redevelopment of a former sheepskin and slipper factory site, once owned by Morlands.
    Glastonbury received national media coverage when, in 1999, cannabis plants were found in the town's floral displays.
    As for the red-herrings, those are false clues as to the villain.
    Spoiler
    [sarcastic]Thankfully, the reviewer tells us who it is in the next sentence.

    Re: First Review of "Goblet of Fire"

    I agree. This reviewer obviously has never read the books.

    Potty Lifestyle is some British slang that is short for Harry Potter's way of life. Magical. It is not a reference to the bathroom fixture.

    I think it rains a lot in Glastonbury and the streets are rather muddy.

    Mad Eye Moody is a loose cannon. He was written that way. His former job as Auror has left him a little mad, don't you think?

    Re: First Review of "Goblet of Fire"

    The second reviewer knew his stuff. That is a good review

    A question for the ones who are checking on IMAX tickets. Has anybody found the running time for the IMAX version? Something has to be cut as the film platter for IMAX at the present time can only hold 150 minutes worth of film and by law they can't cut the credits. So I am wondering if they have cut the film somewhere, or do they have the full 157 minuter running time?
