As we work our way through the Harry Potter film series for the first time, it's great to see the films getting darker, more complex and better as they go.
For me, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE is by far the best film so far, as the tone of the films grows older along with the students at Hogwarts.
There are plenty of great moments as Harry is selected by the Goblet of Fire to be an underage competitor in the "Triwizard Tournament", Lord Voldemort takes scary form in a menacing performance by Ralph Fiennes and the escalating difficulty of the three events in the tournament unfold.
Every production aspect of the film is flawless, from great set design, special effects, photography and music. Director Mike Newell (Donnie Brasco, Four Weddings and a Funeral) keeps the more adult tone flowing while adding some nice humor to the mix.
I had no idea that Robert Pattinson was in Harry Potter and since I refuse to view anything to do with Twilight (haha) had no idea he could act.
Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson continue to get better and better.
My favorite film in the series by far, Goblet of Fire is never slow, delivering nearly three hours of great entertainment and a solid A.
