villain

The goblet, the goblet, the goblet's on fire. We don't need no water let the motherfucker burn!

The Harry Potter movie franchise is amazing. We have four movies out of seven so far and not a single one has disappointed. Is it because they are trying to stay true to the books? Possibly. The books are all very good, but good books do not always make good movies. The series reminds me of Lord of the Rings in the level of quality that is being produced.

So the latest in the series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, lives up to the hype of the series. I don't think it was the best of the series, i think that honor still lies with the Prisoner of Azkaban, but it's close. GoF is a big story and there is lots of action and special effects to fill the screen. There has been several reviews complaining about things getting cut from the book, but honestly I would have cut the same type of things if I were making the movie. Do we really need more of Dobby? He is Harry Potter's Jar Jar Binks, if you ask me.

All in all, they turned out a great action movie for this one.
