This is when the Harry Potter films really started to take of. I mean, the first three films were great and all, but this is when it started to get serious. Technically, this is the first film in the new wave of Potter, and it definitely shows the maturation of the characters and gives them a more adult problem to solve.      The characters are maturing and like the other three films, a whole slew of new ones are introduced while still keeping the old ones intact. the visual …

Deatheaters and *gasp* dates!
In his fourth year at school, Harry Potter (Dan Radcliffe) unwittingly becomes involved in the infamous "Tri-Wizard Tournament," wherein champions from Hogwarts and two visiting wizarding schools face frightening challenges in the hope of winning eternal glory.  With help from his buddies Ron and Hermione, Harry battles dragons, survives underwater, and faces a terrifying maze.  Equally scary for him:  He must choose a date for the Yule Ball.  He …

I had some mixed feelings about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Prof. Moody is probably the funniest of the Dark Arts professors in the series. Also, we see the kids grow up into teenagers. As cinematography, it's probably the best done movie of the Harry Potter series. The special effects (from dragons to Voldemort's minions) are great. The action is entertaining and captures some of the wonder of the world of wizards - more so than any of the other films thus far.     That …

I am a big fan of Harry Potter movies, and have seen each one at the theaters. Having NOT read any of the books except the first, I am probably in that minority of fans who can critique this movie as a stand-alone without any compare or contrast with the book. I watched this movie a week after it came out and was highly impressed with it, and considered it the best movie of the four so far released. I then watched it on DVD at home, and a 2nd viewing has clarified many plot lines first unnoticed, …

I was worried about how they could possibly condense the 870 pages of the fourth Harry Potter Book into one movie, but Director Mike Newell did very well. Yes, they left out some major storylines, but they captured the essence of the book. I have always thought that Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) was the weakest of the three main actors, but in this movie he really comes into his own and doesn't seem as coached as he always has in the previous films.     Things I really liked about …

Much darker than its predecessors, "Goblet of Fire" takes Harry and his friends into a darker corner of the wizarding world. There are dragons, mermaids, a wicked maze, a new Dark Arts teacher(of course!), and something that hasn't been in the first three films so far--death. Without giving away too much, just know that "Goblet" takes the viewer straight into the wizarding world, leaving out the Dursleys, trims up the book that it is based on and attempts to give the viewer the meat-and-potatoes …
