As for the GOF movie. I know people have mixed feelings about this one. Some people absolutely love everything about it, while others can't stand the film. I'm not going to lie, I enjoyed it immensely. I had been looking forward to this one for a while now. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am quite upset by a number of the things that were changed or left out of the film entirely. I watched it again last night at the MARQ E Edwards IMAX Cinema, and I must say that it was MUCH MUCH better on the IMAX screen than on any other.
I just realized something about myself. When it comes to the films, I am such a purist. I want them to be completely canon, leaving no detail to the rubbish bin. Yes, I know this isn't realistic and would lead to 8 hour movies (which I would watch, by the way). But in my fanfiction, I want the characters to act only somewhat the way Rowling designed them. I love Draco/just about anyone else, including Ron. And that notion is so far from canon that it makes me giggle to imagine it on screen, or for that matter in her books. Heh.
Forgive me for my ramblings today. I have a million other thoughts about the movies, the books, fanfiction, etc. You name it. I love dicussing...arguing...just semantics, baby.
