Product Description

The fourth entry in the Harry Potter saga could be retitled Fast Times at Hogwarts, where finding a date to the winter ball is nearly as terrifying as worrying about Lord Voldemort's return. Thus, the young wizards' entry into puberty (and discovery of the opposite sex) opens up a rich mining field to balance out the dark content in the fourth movie (and the stories are only going to get darker). Mike Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral) handily takes the directing reins and eases his young cast through awkward growth spurts into true young actors. Harry (Daniel Radcliffe, more sure of himself) has his first girl crush on fellow student Cho Chang (Katie Leung), and has his first big fight with best bud Ron (Rupert Grint). Meanwhile, Ron's underlying romantic tension with Hermione (Emma Watson) comes to a head over the winter ball, and when she makes one of those girl-into-woman Cinderella entrances, the boys' reactions indicate they've all crossed a threshold.

But don't worry, there's plenty of wizardry and action in Goblet of Fire. When the deadly Triwizard Tournament is hosted by Hogwarts, Harry finds his name mysteriously submitted (and chosen) to compete against wizards from two neighboring academies, as well as another Hogwarts student. The competition scenes are magnificently shot, with much-improved CGI effects (particularly the underwater challenge). And the climactic confrontation with Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes, in a brilliant bit of casting) is the most thrilling yet. Goblet, the first installment to get a PG-13 rating, contains some violence as well as disturbing images for kids and some barely shrouded references at sexual awakening (Harry's bath scene in particular). The 2 1/2-hour film, lean considering it came from a 734-page book, trims out subplots about house-elves (they're not missed) and gives little screen time to the standard crew of the other Potter films, but adds in more of Britain's finest actors to the cast, such as Brendan Gleeson as Mad-Eye Moody and Miranda Richardson as Rita Skeeter. Michael Gambon, in his second round as Professor Dumbledore, still hasn't brought audiences around to his interpretation of the role he took over after Richard Harris died, but it's a small smudge in an otherwise spotless adaptation. --Ellen A. Kim

On the DVD
The highlight of the two-disc set is a half-hour conversation with actors Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. They discuss their reactions to the film and other topics with British writer Richard Curtis . Then they answer questions from contest-winning fans, such as what are their favorite kids' books (Watson bypasses the obvious answer in favor of Roald Dahl and Philip Pullman) and what scenes are they looking forward to in upcoming films. More routine extras include the "Reflections on the Fourth Film" featurette (14 min.), though it has comments from some of the other young cast members, and "Preparing for the Yule Ball" (9 min.). The 10 minutes of additional scenes are mostly skulking and skullduggery, plus a long musical number from the ball. The remaining material is grouped along the lines of the Triwizard Tournament, with behind-the-scenes looks at each of the competitions (about 22 min. total), two longer featurettes on He Who Must Not Be Named (11 min.) and the workday of the other contestants (Robert Pattinson, Stanislav Ianevski, and Clémence Poésy, 13 min.), and four games, playable with the directional arrows on the remote control, that can be frustrating to figure out. --David Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive !!! Aug. 9 2007
By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I read the books of harry potter and own em and when i read book 4 it was really an unbelivable experience it was longer but how good!The autor j.k rowling really take you and make you feel like you were in front of everything that was was happening i wasnt just reading the book i was sort of living it and every time i stopped reading it was like;oh were am i?

And i got that same reaction with the movie the producers have done so well the harry potter universe is hard to imagine and they captured it with so much class and the actors really do well while being part of it.The characters have grown a lot since the first movie and the producers really made that hapen.

With the harry potter movies you really felt like the books and to reproduce such a long book to a movie with the same essence its unbelivable the animation,the story ,everything here is great.They captured most of the imporant parts and cut the less important but the result is very impressive.But the movie is for older audiences then the first 3 so they rated it pg-13.

They argue with harry potter`s lenght yes its very long about 2 hours and a half but you get so much in the movie the first 3 movies were very surprising with amazing effects but consider that each year it gets more long,more complicated than before and the 4 says it all.

They grown the characters over the years but there is a major change here as they experiment relashionships and other things.Also the arrival of the tri wizard tournament changes things.3 Schools including hogwarts are competing and competitors must be a certain age ,and the competitors must throw their name in the cup.3 Names are chosen one from each school,but after harry`s name gets picked.

And the story really take place itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Entertainment June 22 2007
Format:DVD
The movie was basically about Harry's name oddly getting put into the goblet of fire which is really a goblet but has fire or something coming out of it.
I loved this movie! I saw it in the theaters and it was excellent. If you had read the books you would understand it more. Harry boards the train to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he will attend his fourth year of magical education. Shortly after his reunion with his best friends, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), Harry is introduced to another Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher: the grizzled Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson), who agreed to take on the infamous "DADA" professorship as a personal favour to Headmaster Dumbledore (Michael Gambon). Of course, Harry's wishes for an uneventful school year are almost immediately shattered when he is unexpectedly chosen, along with fellow student Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson), as Hogwarts' representatives in the Tri-Wizard Tournament, which awards whoever completes three magical tasks the most skillfully with a thousand-galleon purse and the admiration of the international wizard community. There are 3 tasks, the first one is trying to get a dragons egg from a dragon and the task was hard but Harry completed it. The next task was saving your best friends who had been put to sleep under water. You had to swim underwater and dodge several dangerous things. The third task is the last task and is the hardest, it's a huge maze that you have to go through and there is a port key in the middle. But the other people selected to try and win the cups, went with Harry. They both touched the triwizard cup, and they touched it at the same time because they were friends and they thought it was only fair.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Devils Are Inside The Walls Jan. 23 2007
Format:DVD
Based on the fourth book in J.K Rowling's "Harry Potter" series, "The Goblet of Fire" first hit the big screem in 2005. The film opens at the Weasley family home on the morning of the Quidditch World Cup Final. Although between Ireland and Bulgaria, the match is being played in England, and Harry, Hermione and most of the Weasley clan will be going to it. While Harry finds the event hugely enjoyable, it all goes pear-shaped : the celebrations are ruined by the appearance of a group of Death Eaters (supporters of Voldemort) and the appearance of the Dark Mark (Voldemort's symbol) in the sky.

The international theme continues, however - on reaching Hogwarts, the pupils find out that a Tri-Wizard Tournament will be held during the school year. This is a very famous, not to mention vey dangerous, competition between the three largest European Schools of Wizardry and Witchcraft - Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang. One champion is selected to represent each school and - due to the difficulty and danger of the tasks involved - the Ministry has decided that only students of 17 and over will be allowed to enter. Naturally, this means that - if the rules are adhered to - Harry won't be allowed to enter. Among the visiting students from Beauxbatons and Durmstrang are Victor Krum - who played Seeker for Bulgaria in the World Cup Final - and the highly attractive Fleur Delacour. The visiting students, obviously don't arrive unsupervised - the Headmistress from Beauxbatons is Madame Maxime (who, incredibly, is around even taller than Hagrid) and Professor Karkaroff (a former Death Eater), from Durmstrang.

Inevitably, there's another new Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts - this year, it's an ex-Auror by the name of Mad-Eye Mooney.
