Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
So I managed to squeeze my way into the theater over the weekend and visit Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and wizardry. The movie is both spectacular and horrible at the same time. The special effects are wonderful, but have been better. Harry, Hermione and Ron put on an excellent show. All three of them have become so much better actors over the four movies. Hermione is growing up to be quite the beauty as well. Of course the story was great, but better in the book.

Albus Dumbledore put on the worst show of any of the movies. The man who acts as Dumbledore just isn’t the same as the first… It wasn’t as badly noticeable in the last movie as it was in this movie. He just put on a bad show. Very stoic and harsh. Several scenes were also cut from the book that while not entirely pertinent to the plot line, would have been nice to see.

Overall? The movie is worth watching. On a scale of 1 to 5 I would give it about a 3 1/2 overall. As a Potter fan, I would score it a little higher.

  1. The Hogwarts school motto is Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus that is Latin for “Never Tickle a Sleeping Dragon.”


  1. […] Harry, Ron, Hermione and the crew all return for year six at Hogwarts. Of course chaos, mystery and dark wizardry ensue. Harry Potter finds himself in possesion of potions book that is inscribed with the name “Half-Blood Prince” and has multiple shortcuts and new spells that quickly send Harry to the front of the potions class. Snape finally becomes Dark Arts teacher much to the chagrin of the D.A. members. Once again, Draco Malfoy is up to no good, but this time with a more sinister twist. He’s under orders from the Dark Lord himself. Harry becomes obsessed with finding out exactly what those orders are. Dumbledore begins giving Harry private lessons and begins preparing him for his eventual final battle with Voldemort. But alas, not all is cheery roses and such. Someone must die, and unfortunately, it was Dumbledore himself. (considering his last appearance in Goblet of Fire, this may not be all bad.) The adventure ends with everyone heading home for the summer and Harry vowing to not return to Hogwarts, but to begin the journey that will lead to his ultimate battle with Voldemort. […]
