If you could change one thing about the fourth film, what would it be?

The fourth film is the one that I was most disappointed in until the sixth film came about. 

I remember while reading this one, not knowing who to suspect. Just about everyone had such huge suspicious behavior and it wasn't obvious who placed Harry's name in the Goblet of Fire. Ludo Bagman is absent from the movie all-together and he was a huge person of interest for a while. Then there was Karkoroff who was also a big interest for Harry on his list of possible people. When he found out that Snape was a Death Eater, he was once again implicated. Fred and George were acting incredibly strange through the entire book. The thing is, in the movie we see the face of Barty Crouch Jr. in the very beginning, and while the movie doesn't have Barty Crouch in the school itself (in an obvious way anyway) the viewers still knew that he was who we were looking out for. That was a big disappointment for me.

Then there was Winky. I loved getting the view of a female house elf who was the polar opposite of Dobby. I miss the house elf background information here and the absence of SPEW. 

Lastly, Dumbledore just wasn't very Dumbledore-ish in this film :(

Sunday Cover Scramble [194]



Let's have some fun! I am going to post covers on here every Sunday that are scrambled up graphically, making it hard to tell what cover it is. I would like your guesses on what cover you think I've posted. I won't answer you until I'm posting the next one to let you know if you are right, allowing others to guess as well. Some will be hard, and others may be easy. Let me know in the comments if you'd like some more hints and I'll offer some more if no one guesses it correctly.

Favorite Common Room? Not necessarily where you'd be sorted or your favorite house but which one do you prefer in  terms of decor and location?


Well my common room and my favorite are one in the same...Ravenclaw Tower. I love that the way to enter is by answering a riddle given by an enchanted door knocker (and that makes me think of Labyrinth and Throne of Glass). It is one of the rooms that Harry got to experience so we got a good description of it. I know that Hufflepuff's would probably be homey and very cozy so it would be a good one and Gryffindor's with the big fire and poof chairs sounds very inviting, but I just love the sound of Ravenclaw's as more of a fit for me...stars!! I really enjoyed it when we get to see it in Lego Harry Potter.

From Harry Potter Wikia:

"The Ravenclaw common room is one of the airiest rooms at Hogwarts. It is a wide, circular room with arched windows hung with blue and bronze silks and a midnight blue carpet covered in stars, which is reflected onto the domed ceiling. During the day, Ravenclaw students have an excellent view of the school grounds, including the lake, Forbidden Forest, Quidditch pitch, Herbology gardens and the surrounding mountains.

The room is furnished with tables, chairs, and bookcases; and by the door leading up to the dormitories stands a tall statue of Rowena Ravenclaw made of white marble. According to Prefect Robert Hilliard, the sound of wind whistling around the windows of the tower is relaxing while going to sleep."
