Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Quick and dirty for ya:
Somehow my wife scored pre-release tix for this flick so we went tonight. After sitting through a 1 hour presentation on how to cool your server racks (if ya know what I mean), the movie started.
As usual with Harry Potter movies, this film is visually stunning! The choreography and effects are phenominal. The children are (finally) becoming better actors, and the odd characters are still done to perfection.
The Goblet of Fire is a more mature and a little more frightening film compared to the others. There is some sexual tension among the kids, and a lot of gross, scary, and sad events that might be a little much for the younger, easy-to-scare, sensitive kids. However, I know one person who will enjoy the Harry in the bathtub scene. Guh!
Anyway, my wife has read the books and loves them. I'm pretty entertained by about any film, but she swears that this one was exceptional. They stuck well to the story and portrayed everyone and every thing just as she had hoped.
Therefore, 4.5 out of 5 collectively!
