Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Is seeing the kids get older and strangely hotter worth the time it takes to watch it?
Finally a Harry Potter movie that comes close to doing the books justice! Not only that but the actors are reaching legal age and growing nicely. The first three Harry Potter movies disappointed me, most notably Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It isn’t that they were bad, they were just disappointing. A few plotting errors aside The Goblet of Fire was impressive indeed.
The special effects are astounding and are perfectly integrated into the action. Several of my friends jumped during Harry’s fight with the dragon. The humour also felt much less forced than it has in the previous installments. Ron is no longer annoying but genuinely entertaining. In my opinion he was the worst thing about the first few but here he has discovered that subtlety of facial movements can be funnier than spasms.
I cannot stress enough how hot these kids will be when they are older. I would talk about them now but then I would be arrested. Emma Watson in particular will be such a stunner when she’s older. It always astounds me that children in movies almost always grow up to be uber-hot. How do casting directors know what they will look when they’re older. I guess Haley Joel Osment is the exception.
The next installment should be even better if they cut all of the boring parts out of the book. I can’t wait (actually I can, but it sounded like a good way to end the review).
