Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire

Darnit, Cat, I was looking forward to disagreeing with you, and I think we agree on almost everything about this movie. Yes, it's the best yet. Yes, the special effects are so good the movie is terrifying in spots, definitely not for the faint of heart.

I loved many of the aspects of the novel that were lost in the process of writing a screenplay. I don't mourn them, though: the first film in this series was a marvelous examplar of the reasons that novels and film are different media, and movement between the two requires adjustment.
I like it, too, that moviegoers will hear that there is more in the book.

Thumb's up and a bag of Dumbledore's licorice snap candies!
