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

Harry and his friends are now young ladies and gentlemen. An international Quiditch event is taking place. To get there one has to use a port key (an innocuous looking device that transports one to a different location). Things do not go as well as planned and now a dark element has been added.

Also this year is the tri-wizard tournament in which a hero from each of three learning institutes must compete in unknown events. This is to promote friendship among the institutes. The opportunity is open to only potential contestants of seventeen years. They must enter his/her name into the goblet of fire for selection. So you can imagine everyone's surprise to find fourteen year old Harry's name in the Goblet. How did his name get in the goblet? Will Harry accept the challenge? And if so how will he fair?

We get to see all the characters for the book come to life. Most of the relevant story is included. Among the parts that were left out, I was hoping for the Blast-Ended Skrewts and the male wizard wearing the dress to get plenty of air around his private parts.

The series of Harry films has also matured with each rendition. It took several tries, some better than others but this one has the feel of the book and even with the short time it plays has shown the real feel of the ongoing story of the struggle between Harry and he who must not be named. This includes the larger picture of more than just good verses evil.

1.0 out of 5 stars READ THE BOOK!!!!!!!!!!! March 7 2006
By A Customer
I was so eager to see this movie, I can't tell you. But I watched it and was- bewildered. There was no flow, it was like ( and really this is what they did) they took the most interesting parts and just mashed them together. There was no explaining on anything you were just supposed to know. They relied too heavily on views having read the books so they could understand, but I don't see how any reader could liked his. This is not well done, half the most entertain things are left out. And the acting, come on, I know Daniel Radcliffe is just a kid, but come on no emotion no nothing it looked more like he was just reading a book. Another thing, one of my favourite things in this series is the friendship between Harry Ron and Hermione, you see nothing of that. sure there's the "touching" reunion between Harry and Ron, but nothing more. Hardly any interaction between the three of them. Oh yes and the supposed romance between Hermione and Ron, well in this movie, I don't like Ron. Ralph Fiennes as Voldamort (SP?) was good, but what was up with the "because I am a kind lord' or whatever crap. Kind lord, him? come on even the murdering psycho knows he's not "kind". this was a huge disappointment. the cast was dreadful, the directing was terrible. I know they couldn't put everything into it, and I'm honestly glad that they didn't put SPEW into it. They should have split the movie into two parts. it was the only way they could have given justice to a fabulous book, rather than slaughter it, into unrecognizable heap of garbage. the only thing I can honestly say I liked about this movie was....... hang on it's coming to me..... nope, nothing, I was looking forward to Order of the Phoenix but after this catastrophe and waste of money I'm seriously considering just skipping it altogether. save your money read the book and marvel at the skill of JKR.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Movie!! March 10 2006
I thought this was one of the best of the three! I was reading the other reviews and one was talking of a single-disk DVD. When I bought mine there was a choice of a single-disk at a very cheap price as well as a two-disk special addition which was going for a few dollars more. I'm not sure where that person bought their's but I shopped around and got a great deal from Zellers, but found afterwards that Walmart had a better deal! Watch the movie folks!! For those of you that follow the books and have read them all, you won't be disappointed with this one at all! The graphics were great and I really enjoyed watching it with my three daughters! Awesome movie!!

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome Jan. 21 2006
this movie was amazing....although i admit i thought it would be better than it was. the book was more exciting, but i guess they did what they could considering the book was super long and the movie could only bee three hours or whatever it was. the book was definetely better, but i like all the books better than the movies, so yeah. anyway it seemed like every movie was better than the last, and i think its still true, but i admit i only saw it once. and POA was pretty hard to beat, but GOF was so good, not to mention all the guys are hot. i would have liked to have seen more of draco. anyway, awesome movie, harry rules, see it.

4.0 out of 5 stars WB needs to spend the extra time March 7 2006
By A Customer
I think it would have been nice if they had spent some extra time developing a booklet or something with the Special Edition. I found it kind of weak that there was no insert or anything. I hope the special features are worth it. I'm sure they are but quality should be something they thought of. I mean I wouldn't have minded waiting longer for the release if they were to develop something 'special' since it is a collectors edition. We want something collectible for our money!
The movie itself is wonderful. I really like this director. The whole movie is exciting. The only exception is Dumbledore...*sigh*
