Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Reviews
3/10: Muy Mala.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: It has to be said that on an aesthetic and spectacle level, it's far less pleasing than Michael Seresin and Alfonso Cuaron's efforts.
VERDICT: Finally a properly exciting, engaging and adventurous journey for these great characters. This was much deserved.
The Potter films don't necessarily get 'better', but are definitely more bearable with each new instalment. This particular film (as with the remaining three), has quite a task of reducing a very long novel into a 150minute running time, yet manages to portray a number of sub plots featuring an array of uniquely different characters to add adequate depth & tension.
Parenting first time around i think i thought this was one of the best of the books, but that Azkaban was the pick of the films. I was wrong.
This is a rollicking good film. Perhaps the last fun one, before they try to be cool and oh so dark. It's funny, has a quality Triwizard narrative; and has fun introducing the two other schools. It adopts knowing winks with the Jarvis Cocker cameos etc, and the fumbling, awkward discovery of sexuality. Just the Emo haircuts need to go.
