Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Je ne sais pas pour vous, mais "The Ultimate version" d'un film ou d'une série devrait contenir plus qu'un DVD "Special Edition".
Le documentaire inclus dans les différents coffrets sur les différents composants(personnages, créature, musique...) du film est vraiment intéressant. Les petits côtés comme les cartes des personnages et l'album photo sont chouettes surtout pour les fans, mais soyons honnête le plus important reste le film et ce n'est même pas une version prolongé, je veux que les scènes supplémentaire ne sont pas inclus dans le film (pour le 3e et 4e film), il s'agit en fait des mêmes films qui sont offert dans la version "Special Edition" de 2 DVD. Je ne dirai pas comme RICK "rdthomp17" qu'il s'agit d'un mauvais achat, mais tout de même je m'attendais à beaucoup mieux.
Finalement, je ne sais pas si c'est moi, mais j'ai acheté le coffret de la Coupe de feu sur Amazon.ca et elle ne contient même pas la piste audio française.

I do not know for you, but "The Ultimate version" of a movie or a series should contain more that a DVD " SPECIAL EDITION ".
The documentary included in the various box set on the various components(characters, creature, music) of the movie is really interesting. The collectibles as the cards of the characters and the photo album are great especially for the fans, but let us be honest the most important is the movie and it's not even a prolonged version, the additional scenes are not included in the movie (for the 3rd (prisonners of azkaban) and 4th movie (Goblet of fire), it's in fact about the same movies which are offered in the version " Special Edition " of 2 DVD. I'm not saying like RICK "rdthomp17": "this is a piece of scrap", but I expected much better.

As a Harry Potter fan, I recently decided to see once more all the earlier Potter movies. Each is, of course, very different from the book on which it is based, because movies and books are different art forms. However, the "Goblet of Fire" was much less enjoyable than either the book or the earlier movies. So much was left out that I was left feeling a little breathless and disoriented, wondering how much sense the movie could have made to people who had not read the book. I shared my DVD with a friend who has read none of the books, and had to explain a lot of things to her, just so she could make sense out of the action. For example, the movie shows Neville's unhappiness over the Crucio curse, but the only reference to the impact that curse has had on his own life is one very quick mention of the use of the curse on some people whose last name is the same as his. A person unfamiliar with the book would have to be very alert to notice the connection, and even then, they would be left wondering, well, are these people related to Neville, and what exactly happened to them? Considering how essential Neville's growth from an emotionally damaged, frightened child to an heroic youth ready to do anything to conquer the evil that destroyed his parents is to the series as a whole, this was an unforgiveable gap. Movie adaptations of novels have to condense whole chapters into short segments of action, but this movie went too far, condensed too much, and left out too much that mattered.

Now in his fourth year at school, Harry Potter (Dan Radcliffe) becomes unwittingly 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 has his eyes on the lovely Cho Chang but is too shy to ask her. Lord Voldemort and his Deatheaters play a prominent part in this installment as Harry faces a life and death duel.

The movie is very well written and the acting is good, too. The three kids are now playing 14-year olds and are showing a greater range of emotions. There is much humor when it comes to dealing with the opposite sex, a talent the usually capable Harry seems to lack. Watching the three at the Yule Ball is sweet and awful, as these things tend to be at that age.

The soundtrack and special effects are wonderful as usual and the suspenseful story is acceptable and enjoyable for children over eight as well as older audiences. If you're a Potter fan, you're sure to enjoy "Goblet of Fire." This is the best of the series so far and definitely lives up to all expectations.

The 4th film was, after all, a bit of letdown, in that, up til now, each one was better than the last. This was the one directed by Mike Newell (the first Brit) and moves us into a more grown up world. We also finally meet the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) in the reincarnated flesh.

But it really just didn't work for me as well as 2-3. Stripping away all the trappings of the wonder of being at a magical school should have worked, but it didn't, somehow. Maybe because there was no contrast. Maybe because showing sinister things is not as impactful as showing normal everyday happenings, with sinister overtones (this is what worked so well in Twin Peaks). The stakes weren't as high in #3, but the whole thing was so wonderfully packaged by Cuaron. It was a sheer visual delight, with details in every corner. Newell does away with all of that, and Harry's world just seems like he's in a normal fantasy world/alternate universe, as opposed to a secret world, hidden right under our noses.

The showdown with Voldemort was a letdown too. I don't know how the book portrays him, but here he's a screaming, wild madman, as opposed to some sort of evil genius.

I still enjoyed it. They dealt with the maturation of the characters well (including the raging hormones). But it wasn't as fun as #2 or #3.
