Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire the best HP movie yet? In my opinion, it was not only better, it totally outshined the last 3. I'm very glad the filmmakers made the jump to PG-13 for this movie because they got to make it much scarier, the way it should have been all along. The story of the movie is totally solid. Harry is back in Hogwarts for his 4th year of un-Muggle training. When he returns, he finds the Triwizard Tournament is being held at Hogwarts. Somehow, he gets entered and is chosen to be in the Tournament. The 2 main plots are the Tournament and the re-rising of Voldemort, which finally connect in the end. A lot of humor was put in, along with sadness: I bet some people cried during it. It keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole 2.5 hours. There was really never a dull moment in this movie, unlike the last 3 Harry Potter movies. They introduced many new characters, but it never really got confusing. The acting was great from Daniel, Emma, and Rupert. Also, there was some romance between Cho and Harry, and Ron and Hermione. The bad thing about the Cho and Harry part is, they don't really show much: it goes from him looking at her a few times to him asking her to the Yule Ball. The special effects were incredible. You really couldn't see any difference between Harry and the dragon he had to fight, which was CGed. This movie was truly magical, so all you muggles out there should go see it. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire gets 5 Dark Marks out of 5.

  • Dude, there wasn't much of a romance between Harry and Cho, it was more of he had a crush on her and she was flattered. I mean c'mon, he was in the Triwizard Tournament for jell-o's sake. And there was no romance between Ron and Hermione, all they did was yell at each other. Yeah, my friends that went with me almost cried near the ending, I am never going to let them live it down. Overall, IT IS AWESOME!

  • Actually, there was Harry and Cho, it just didn't happen much in this movie. and about Ron and Hermione, yeah there was if you payed attention. Ron kept trying to hide it and it showed at the dance. Yeah, it was awesome, I'm thinking about going to see it again.

  • I did pay attention, name one time where he said he liked her. And make it exact, don't just say the dance.

  • Alright Ton, I got your back on this one. Neither Hermoine or Ron ever flat out said, I like you Ron/Hermoine, BUT, Hermoine was like next time, ask me to the dance cause you can admit you like me and not as a last resort, and you could tell Ron was pissed about her showing up with another guy the whole time. So Zam you are right, they never said it, and Ton you are right, they hinted at it in the movie, but it was very brief, I think they were depending on people already knowing about the love plot from reading the books. No more bickering children!

  • Yup, you're right Doug. ok, the Yule Ball, not dance. It was very subtle, but it was there.

  • Yeah, you could sort of feel the potential of it. Doug is right.

  • I just thought, why weren't the actors in the movie wearing their Hogwarts robes?
