Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Oh Harry! How could you? Well, the movie is doing great at the box office, still at number one, but isn't up to snuff. The story does not flow very well, and there is not that feeling of being part of the main trio's circle of confidance. The book is soooooo much better. This movie only covers about 1/4 of the material. I guess there is really no way to make one movie to cover most of the book. The special effects are great, but as we all saw with Star Wars Episode I, that alone does not make a great movie. Fans will want to see this movie. It is probably not suited to small children.
