Coming back to Hogwarts is always exciting; there’s new spells to be learnt and potions lessons to attend. But things come to a halt for Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) during his fourth year when the TriWizard Tournament comes to his school.

Is The Plot Interesting?

With students from other schools being invited into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, from which you learn so much about the rest of the wizarding world that we don’t know about, the plot does get very interesting.

Is The Acting Good?

Ralph Fiennes joins the Harry Potter cast this time and what a spectacular job he does. His performance as the newly arisen Lord Voldemort is hair-raising and gives me the chills every time I watch it.

Is The Directing Good?

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire welcomes a new director, Mike Newell, who brings a fresh perspective on the Harry Potter universe. He makes the movie even darker than the previous one.

Is The Cinematography Good?

There are plenty of opportunities for this movie to succeed in this area, and it does a lot of the time, but there are many opportunities missed. I could point out lots of moments where the cinematography could have been just a bit better.

Is It Worth Watching?

With its darker tone and amazing cast it is definitely the best Harry Potter movie so far. You not only learn more about the wizarding world we’ve grown to love but Harry’s story evolves so much in this movie that you simply have to watch it.


It is my very great pleasure to inform you that the TriWizard Tournament will be taking place at Hogwarts this year.
