  • Re: Fantastic Beasts SPOILERS!

    I didn't like it at all :neutral: The story was uninteresting, the characters (and consequently, the actors) were bad and one note. It was a downgrade visually too, until now I haven't fully appreciated how much Stuart Craig did for the HP films lol
    I am surprised at the amount of people around different discussion boards who consider this Yates' best HP movie. Yates' cinematography choices were much more interesting in HBP, DH and even in The Legend of Tarzan. It's not bad, it's just... pretty standard. It might be due to him working with more talented cinematographers back then in Delbonnel and Serra.
    That said, Yates is still great at directing actors. Overall I enjoyed the movie. It had a lot of charm and I really cared about the characters. For me it's a solid start for this new franchise.
  • Re: What If Deathly Hallows Was Never Split?

    I think it would be called Harry Potter and the Elder Wand. Basically remove the Deathly Hallows subplot and emphasize the all powerful wand. I think they could have included Harry's parents briefly in the limbo scene with Dumbledore in a way that would make Harry's choice to return to life harder.

    I would love to adapt Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. There are so many ways you could do it and I think a liberal approach would be the way to go.
  • Re: Official Fantastic Beasts Thread - TEASER TRAILER RELEASED

    Yates is really good at framing scenes and letting them develop.

    I think back to the way the cave in HBP was handled and all I can think is "wow, give this guy a chance to do this more" and yes, he should with Fantastic Beasts. There will a lot of outdoor environments. I hope the most intense and emotional scenes take place outdoors.
    He did nail that scene. As for intense and emotional scenes outdoors, I remember that he handled Dobby's death brilliantly. The subtle shaky cam was quite effective.
  • Re: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and LOTR Official Thread

    "The last move in a master plan"

    Jackson's master plan about how to turn the book into an epic mess of Middle Earth proportions? We'll see if the last chapter not only justifies sitting through two plodding chapters, but if it can make sense of its parts to form a coherent whole. This one looks a bit more edgy based on the trailer. What I am curious about is what the story focuses on. Hopefully the battle scenes are entertaining while moving the story along and keeping the focus on Bilbo and Thorin, as opposed to being the main attraction in itself.
  • Re: Deathly Hallows: Part 1 better made than part 2

    First of all I consider them the same film considering that it was shot as one.
    Alright, this is all semantics. Then I would say that the first half of the film is better than the last half. Feel free to disagree.
