Thoughtful

(no subject)

I watched the 5th Harry Potter movie today! I have to say that I was really, really impressed. In fact, I had a big grin on my face during most of the movie. Umbridge was perfect. Luna was perfect. The Ministry of Magic fight was WOW. It had better pacing than the other movies IMO, and the music was great. I was actually surprised at how many things they kept in, like Grawp (I expected him to get cut), Percy, Seamus, and little details like Luna reading the Quibbler upside down. I think the only things I'm really disappointed with are the lack of Sirius's mirror (isn't that going to be important later on? Apparently J.K. Rowling told the movie people to keep Kreacher in because he would be important, but not Sirius's mirror?) and the lack of Harry's outburst at Dumbledore (without that, it feels like Harry is still keeping his feelings pent up). But overall, this is my favorite of the movies so far. :)


Also, I've been thinking more about the new Darker than BLACK OP. Collapse )

Now with those thoughts out of the way, I should really get started on that translation. >_>;;

Re: Detective Conan Movie 10

OMG this was one of the best movies. :DD It's the 10th Anniversary movie, so nearly EVERY recurring character appears. It sounds crazy, but it totally worked!! And nearly everyone had a great scene! Even Sonoko! XD Kaitou Kid totally PWNED! *__* And Haibara, and Heiji, and Hakuba Saguru!! ♥♥♥ And there was a Mouri/Eri scene, Satou and Takagi were on a date, and and and...wow! XD

There were so many cool action scenes! And they weren't too over-the-top either! Conan actually fractured his leg halfway through during a skateboard stunt. O.O (That should have happened when he skateboarded down the rollercoaster in the 4th movie LOL.) I have to say the actual case didn't interest me much, but the overall plot was full of suspense. There were many parts that made me gasp, even up to very last scene!

But I can't believe they killed off those two detectives from the Sunset Mansion case off-screen. D: That made me sad. And why was Mitsuhiko's voice different? What happened to Ohtani Ikue? o.o

Anyway, in terms of character interaction, this movie was the best. The only thing missing was a Shinichi/Ran romance scene, but I didn't mind that at all because every other movie has one. And none of the other movies has Conan, Heiji, Haibara, Hakuba, and Kaitou Kid (basically all of my favorite characters) working together all at once!! XD Oh, I am such a happy fangirl right now.
