Movie Review: Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire

Monday, December 12, 2005
This weekend I also saw Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire.

The quick summary: Harry has strange, potentially prophetic dreams during his fourth year at Hogwart's. He mysteriously gets entered into the Tri-Wizard championship (for which he's the fourth of three contestants and for which he doesn't meet the age requirement.) Adventures abound - and in the meantime Harry discovers girls.

The movie starts out in a disjointed fashion and really takes a long time to start making sense and flowing evenly, but once it does it becomes enjoyable. I get really, really tired, however, of movies where the people in the know speak in cryptic messages and never seem to communicate with each other. No wonder the good guys are constantly getting their asses kicked - they have poor communication and coordination.

This movie is pretty dark and suffers from an overabundance of characters. You really have to have seen each of the previous movies to get a lot of what's going on in this one. It's still fun, for the most part... if nothing else watching all the characters be a foot taller than they were in the first film.

Final word on Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire: Worth seeing, but you could wait for the rental if you must.
