Too bad they had to cut so much of the book. I missed SPEW and Sirius. Ahh well, still excellent. I'll be standing in line to buy the DVD.
I'm seeing it on an IMAX screen tomorow!

EDIT: I saw it yesterday, and it's really good, but it's more "Harry Potter and the Triwizard Tournament"-it misses a lot of side-plots, making some characters non-existent or only two-dimensional. It's still really good, though, especially Ralph Fiennes. Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman are great, even though they don't have a multitude of lines-their acting is so good it they don't need words at all. There is some interesting accents from the other schools-it seems that while they were trying to get some consistency in the Eastern European accents, they sort of end up being non-consistent individually. (Krum and Karkaro ffhad accents that changed to and fro from a Russian, German, and Swedish accents, rather than just settling on, say, Western Russian or something)

I give it an "A" as "Harry Potter and the Triwizard Tournment", and "B-" or "C+' (depending on your purity level) as book-pure "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire".
