Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) PG13 - 4 Stars

The fourth installment to the Harry Potter series and I must say they are have been great up to this point. The special effects are awesome and the acting from all the children is great and you can really feel this group has gotten into their rolls entirely. I think it's great most of the cast has stayed together making it easier to identify the characters as if you know them already.

Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) I guess is now 14 or soemthing. It's fun to watch him grow up before your eyes. In this episode, Harry boards the train to Hogwarts school to start his 4th sememster of magicical training. His best friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), (fun watching them grow up now too). In this episode we meet another Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Mad-Eye Moody (Brendan Gleeson). You gotta love his eye. Moody has agreed to take on the infamous "DADA" professorship as a personal favor to Headmaster Dumbledore (Michael Gambon).

The enchanted Goblet of Fire selects Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson), Victor Krumand Stanislav Ianevski), Fleur Delacour (Clémence Poésy) and eventually spits out Harry's name, all choosen to represent Hogwarts' Tri-Wizard Tournament. The prize to whoever completes three magical tasks will be the thousand-galleon purse coveted Triwizard Cup, and the admiration of the international wizard community. The most feared wizard in the world, the Dark Mark - Lord Voldemort who hasn't been seen for 13 years, will be looking on as the tournament begins.
