Hey- it's not too long now for the new Harry Potter movie to come out. It looks good- they had a pic of the kids in the paper the other night- they have grown up some but they are still really cute! November 18, 2005- the fun starts again.

Goblet of Fire was my favorite book in the series as it was chock-full of sub-plot and action. I actually just started reading the series at the end of Summer and I'm already on Half-Blood Prince. The books are easy page turners and I would recommend them to anybody who enjoys fiction.

I will miss Richard Harris as Dumbledore. I simply don't like Michael Gambon's delivery.

You can't go wrong with Dragons either!

I've seen a couple commercials and the dragons look awesome. i can't wait to see it.

Msnbc.com had nice little story on it.

Counting down the days. Since Star Wars and LOTR series are finished, don't have much else to look forward to moviewise. (Well more Batman - love Christian Bale as Batman - and Indiana Jones but these are different.)

Goblet of Fire is my favorite so far too. And the previews look awesome. I can't understand some people already complaining about the PG-13 rating. Well, the action is more intense, the kids are growing up and learning more skills. They have to learn a higher level of Defense Against the Dark Arts skills to be able to fight Voldemort in the last book.

I don't know, The Chronicles of Narnia are starting this Christmas with "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" I think these are going to be good.

I wouldn't mind seeing a couple of the Xanth novels made into movies. I loved them when I was a pup.

FBH - agree. The Chronicles of Narnia look great from the trailers so far. I hope they do the books justice.

As for GoF, it will be interesting to see how much of the book makes the movie. So much took place before they even got to school in the book. There is just so much material there to work with. I hope they do the book justice.

The campground scenes at the Quidditch World Cup look awesome too. You can definately see how the movie has changed. It looks awesome!

peter jackson's king kong comes out before christmas also. just on his name alone, i will see it.
the new superman could be good; kevin spacey as lex luther. he has to be great in that part. they did change superman's costume though. it is more of a burgundy color with a smaller "S" on his chest.

I can't wait to see Goblet of Fire. It was my favorite book because it was so action packed. I think I will have to read it again before the movie, just as a refresher. I can't wait for the final book. How does everybody think it will end?

I agree with you... I read the book for the first time in my life last year for my Children's Lit class and I think this is gonna' be worth seeing..

Is it just me or does anyone else see something wrong with Harry's appearance?

And I forgot about Narnia. It does look awesome and hope the movie is good and they make these a series.

The movie HAS to have this rating. this kids who are growing up with HP aren't kids anymore and they wouldn't want the moviemakers to sugarcoat anything for them. I think the majority of these complaints come from those who really don't understand what is happening to the characters at this stage of the story...any bets on what the final movie will be rated?

Anywho, I for one am STOKED and anxiously awaiting the release. My friends and I are making plans to see the midnight release showing at our local IMAX. I won't tell you where though, cause I don't want you stealing our tickets.

Heard on the radio today that this is the best one yet. Over 2 hours. Although the host also saw I Walk the Line and said it is excellant, she thought the Harry would be the weekend winner.

It is 2 hours and 37 minutes. I have my tickets already for tomorrow. I bought them on Monday. I would have gone to the midnight showing, but that theatre is about 50 minutes away, and I have to work tomorrow.

Can you tell I'm a little excited? lol

I can't wait to see the movie either! The previews look so good. I'm dragging my husband along even though he hasn't seen any of the movies or read the books. I think he'll enjoy it.

I'm looking forward to this one! I read Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince over a 3 week span this summer. I'm all caught up and ready for the movies! WhooHoo!

I want to see "I walk the Line." I've only recently discovered Johnny Cash. I bought his American IV album and really liked it - so I starting at the end and working my up to the beginning. Great music though!

We are all brainwashed into the need for new Harry Potter! New Books, gotta read them. New Movies, got to see them. (And yes I am too!)
