Product Description

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (BD)

]]>

Amazon.com

The latest 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

Go through the soundtrack listing before reading this review, because the former spoils everything there is to spoil.

While not necessarily the most vital feature of the `Harry Potter' films, one of the most important considerations is perhaps the feel of each movie, which is one of the most immediate things that strikes an audience.

In terms of that, as the series progresses, each part has become sturdier in achieving an all-round sense of completeness, in that every instalment gradually moves towards being a singular film in its own right while taking rich pickings from a world, whose continuity and consistency have been respected and admirably maintained, reconceived for the silver screen in what will ultimately be seven parts.

The first movie was atmospherically very lush, with rich hues of red and gold that both conveyed the wondrous regality of Hogwarts and gave the film an aptly warm, seasonal touch that maintained a sense of comfort in the world our young protagonists found themselves in as well as for the young audience, and, of course, mirrored the cheery Christmas movie-going period. The second saw a darkening that was tentative at best, giving it a more grimy, dull and sapped feel rather than a truly menacing or ominous one. The Gothic turn in the third demonstrated what that darkening should have accomplished, in addition to matching the mood of the third book, which, strange as it may sound, lent itself to the colour purple. `Goblet of Fire' then suitably attains a lovely palette that might have been filtered through a window in spring, bringing about a tightly textured look that doesn't suffer from an effluvium of colour, ranging from the autumnal compound of the castle to the shadowy blue of a graveyard.

Like many of you who purchased the first two ultimate editions at a pretty penny, i was expecting extended editions of movies 3 and 4. What a disappointment! Were the big wigs at WB thinking that their fans would triple dip editions when they bring out all films in one super ultimate collection? I already owned all of the HP on Blu, but sold them when i started buying the Ultimate editions. I will NOT be purchasing 3 and 4. Very poor on WB's part to say its ultimate, and include 8 hours of bonus materials, but not the few extra scenes that regularly show on TV. Very poor indeed.

Unlike the first two potter films released in "Ultimate Edition" form, the second two versions do not include their extended editions. This might not be a legitimate complaint if these versions of the films didn't already exist. In the US, they are aired quite regularly on ABC Family, and are quite good.

These extended editions of the film make the price point of the first two versions palatable, but their absence makes you wonder what exactly you're paying for with both this and the ultimate edition of PoA.

There is so much good to say about this movie, but I'll start by answering the major criticisms of the detractors. Many are complaining that much from the book is left out. This is a valid point, and viewers who have read the book no doubt notice that the story skips about. I imagine if you haven't read the book, the story comes off as much more cohesive...you don't know what's missing. However, it is important to note that as in Lord of The Rings, the filmmaker is attempting to adapt a large and reasonably complex book into a film of 2.5 hours. In fact, this Potter book is far longer than any single Lord of the Rings installment. Things ARE going to be left out....thus, for fans of the books, it is more important to look at whether the overall portrait that the movie paints is both loyal and beautiful...Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is very true to its characters and captures the beauty of Hogwarts' magic to a degree that surpasses anything in the earlier movies. Detailed breakdown as follows:

Cinematography:

One of the things that impressed me most about Prisoner of Azkaban (Potter 3) was the beauty of the set piece scenes. No one could deny that Harry's ride on the hippogriff was beautifully shot. In addition, the color palette as a whole seemed many shades darker than the first two movies. The overal effect was that the movie felt more targeted towards adults. Goblet of Fire continues this trend. All of the major scenes have truly beautiful scenery buttressed by some impressive CGI. The whole movie felt like one set of wonders followed by another...I simply smiled at the beauty of much of it.

I am a big fan of the books and have enjoyed the movies so far without too much complaint. It has made a good deal of sense why minor details were cut out of the movie, but the reason I gave this film such a low review is because how the screenwriters managed to butcher the characters.

1.) Victor Krum is meant to be an awkward guy who is tall, lanky and has a sort of duck-like walk. When you get him on a broom this awkwardness is completely gone. He's also a quiet character who is always found in the library at the same time as Hermione. That's why she's attracted to him in the first place. This is completely changed for the movie. Victor Krum is suddenly a very robust and muscular young man who is adored by the ladies. He is also very cocky and seems to have absolutely nothing in common with Hermione.

2.) Cedric Diggery is also not such a self conceited character. They did manage to cast a good looking young man, but since when does he laugh at Harry? It is also insinuated that it is Cedric's friends who make the "Potter Stinks" buttons. That's not true! Cedric is adored by his father, yes, but Cedric is a Prefect. He isn't a popular kid who uses that to his own advantage. Cedric is loved by his classmates because he is a genuinely good person. They didn't do a very good job of portraying this. The audience feels very little for Cedric which doesn't give such a great character any justice.

3.) Since when does Dumbledore try to strangle Harry? I had a lot of problems seeing a character who has always been respectful turn to this sudden loss of hope. Suddenly Dumbledore doesn't know what to do, he can't handle the situation and he continues to yell at the students. Dumbledore is such a respected character that he doesn't have to yell or lose his temper.

Extended Versions
I am also searching for the Director's cut versions or extended versions. I feel sure some exist because Dish Network played on some time back and I know I saw scenes I have not seen before. As a rookie Amazon.com shopper, where does one go to located Director's or Extended versions?
