The 4th is the Harry Potter film series is quite an interesting film! It starts out quite dramatically as Harry & the Weasleys go to the world Quidich championship that ends abruptly by the arrival of an ominous specter. Harry & the usual crew go back to Hogwarts to find that they will be joined by students from 2 other schools to share ideas & also compete for the legendary Tri-Wizards Cup! Harry is not old enough to submit his name to compete for the cup, but after the 3 competitors, one from each school, are chosen, the title implement, the Goblet of Fire, spews forth a final name, none other than Harry's! After a huge brouhaha over allowing him to compete, Harry & the others start the extremely dangerous tournament. Treachery is a foot throughout, as are a few new love interests for the main characters.
All the main players are back as well as some new & interesting characters. Will Voldemort make his usual appearance? If so, how will Harry defeat him this time? Who wins the tournament? Will the new Dark Arts professor survive?
You'll just have to watch the movie to find out! This is another wonderful Harry Potter film full of amazing visual effects sure to take your breath away! The story is good filled with many twists & turns. The ending as always is full of surprises. There are lots of fun new characters as well as all your old favorites. There are plenty of thrills & quite a few laughs! It is a bit scary so don't let the young ones watch, but overall, it is fun for the whole family!
The fourth movie in the Harry Potter series The Goblet of Fire continues where The Prisoner of Azkaban left off. In his fourth year at Hogwarts Harry is growing up and the tone of the films is growing up, both with him and with his audience. Forced to compete in the Triwizard Tournament Harry faces his most difficult challenges yet and finally comes face to face with his greatest nemesis, Lord Voldemort. This film is darker than the ones that came before it culminating in an end where not everything comes out right. Another thing that has grown is the special effects I found them to be more realistic than ever. I can't think of anything that I didn't like about this film, and the Special Features give you what you want to see. I would definitely recommend this film and this edition.
In this 4th Installment in the Harry Potter series, our young wizard finds himself
placed in the Tri-Wizard tournament - a competition consisting of 3 dangerous events. During all this both Harry & his friends(Ron & Hermione)also deal with the dreaded threat known as puberty: Harry struggles with the concept of asking a girl out, Ron still acts like a nervous wreck & Hermione finally snags her first date. Another highlight to look forward to is the long awaited return of Harry's quote on quote nemesis, Lord Voldemort(played brilliantly by Ralph Fiennes). I thought this follow-up was a huge improvement over the disappointing 3rd film(HP & The Prisoner of Azkaban)which really sucked and didn't seem to add anything major to the series. If you have any young ones that want to see the film be cautious because this time around the film is rated PG-13, instead of PG - due to some darker themed elements within the film. Overall, I give the film a 9 out of 10 - it not only makes up for the lame 3rd film but also adds a little something extra that all fans(of the books or just the movies)will enjoy.
The Goblet of Fire is my favorite installment of the seven series of the Harry Potter saga. This one reminds me of the Olympics with the Quidditch tournament, how competitors in HS feel about each other and the competitive tension during the Tri Wizard Cup. It also brings some solemn reality that not all things end well in the magical world and that magic does have it's dark side. Dragons are my favorite magical creature and I was delighted to find the Welsh, Norwegian, and Hungarian cultures be reflected in the dragon breeds they chose to showcase in the Dragon Egg competition. This was a no-brainer for me to buy!
I went to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire truly excited by the prospect of this film which should be the turning point in the Harry Potter odyssey, but came away somewhat disappointed.
The special effects were awesome, but the film played like a highlights tape. I know that there is no possible way to cover what was in the book, but the movie jumped from one high point to the next, with almost no character development.
I fully expected this to be a darker movie, but it was lacking the warmth of the earlier films, simply because it didn't devote any time to the friendship of the three. I was also very surprised that so little time was devoted to the finale. This particular event was the changing point in Harry's life and it received even less time than some of the Challenges.
There was some minor comic relief (usually involving Ron), but it just wasn't enough... and wasn't very funny.
All that said, the film definitely held my interest and rates almost four stars, but it felt like it was missing heart. It just left me kind of cold...
