So I watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, or according the Malay subtitles, Harry Potter Dan Gelas Berapi.
It was good. Umm... make it average lah. I won't say bad because I reckon the girl who played Cho Chang singlehandedly saved the show.
Maybe it's just me but I don't think Daniel Radcliffe make a believable 14-year-old Harry Potter at all.
At age 14, we certainly didn't have the opportunity to go to school balls. We weren't even allowed by our parents to have girlfriends because at 14, we were supposed to "concentrate on schoolwork". The closest thing I had to dancing with a girl was standing up and holding her hands for one friggin hour in class. It wasn't meant to romantic though - that's our punishment for not doing our homeworks.
Heck, when I was 14 years old we don't talk about love and crushes so openly and my female classmates don't have boobs as big as Hermoine's. She didn't even look like that two episodes ago! I don't know, maybe there's a scene where Hermoine secretly cast a spell called A-ba-ca-Acup-to-Dcup-bra on herself. Too bad the director had to removed it due to time constraints.
Harry Potter just looks way old and grown up for his age. In fact, in one scene he looked like some Sith Lord from Star Wars.
I pity the producers. The casts are all growing up very quickly and the excessive lovey-dovey scenes in the script didn't help. It's like watching Dawson's Creek set in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
- Harry Potter = James van der beek
- Ron Weasley = Joshua Jackson
- Hermoine Granger = Katie Holmes
These kids grow up way too fast. I just hope they're able to finish shooting the entire series before Daniel Radcliffe becomes Ashton Kutcher and Emma Watson turns into Jessica Simpson.
