    The chapters describing the Quidditch World Cup are fantastic. I love imagining the scene with the countries national demonstration and the actual game itself. This will be one of the best scenes in the Fourth movie.

    i think this book will make the best film as you've got into the characters alot more and you know what they're like and this is were their true frendship shows i think.

    I agree. The third movie will be even better than the first two. Better characters and plot. :D

    As the characters get older, the plot gets much more interesting. They can do so much more. Like visiting Hogsmeade and having the formal dance. Makes everything much more interesting than when they were only taking classes and playing Quidditch.

    I thought the Classes were funny like in the film CoS the Herbology class and that made my sister fall about in fits she even said if her garden did that it wold be better than it is now so at least some people like those sort of bits.

    The classes were interesting and very good scenes. I just like the idea of an expanded world. Can't wait to see what they do with the Hogsmeade village.

    I did like the quiddich world cup, but i think too much time was spent on it and it made the book too long for most people.

    Guess you haven't read the HP books. Or seen the movies. lol

    Quidditch is the sports game wizards play. Kind of like soccer but played on broomsticks in the air. Watch the one of the HP movies, if you want a better idea what a quidditch game looks like.

    It gives you all the details of it in the first and fourth book and they talk about it in the fith book too but the most detail is given in the first book when HArry plays for the first time.

    The most detail is in the first book. It gives the groundwork for the entire game. But the beginning of the fourth book with the Quidditch World Cup, also gives some great information on the game.

    The only thing I'm not looking forward to with the fourth movie is to see them rip apart
    the book, removing funny little scenes.

    'Cause there's no way they can make it that detailed with just 2:30 hours

    In the first two movies they could do that, but with the fourth one (where the book is
    over 300 pages longer), I'm afraid that they will ruin the whole story.

    But it's not impossible to make a good movie of it though, just very hard.
    So it's not an easy task Mike Newell is going to get. Hope he suceeds!
