Goblet of Fire

I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I didn’t get to sleep until after 3:30AM, and I had to go to work today too. I’m dead tired.

The plot and dialogue seemed to move at a very quick pace in the beginning. I started to wonder if they purposely gave the older actors less lines. I also found that the movie deserves its PG-13 rating, and not just due to the parts with Voldemort, death, and destruction. There was quite a bit of sexual inuendo, and I felt that the movie would have fit at home in the 80s for some of the campy-ness. I mean, there is the dance scene, and Hagrid’s hands move “below the equator”, only to be moved back up by Madame Olympe Maxime. Wasn’t that right out of a movie like Revenge of the Nerds?

Not that it was bad. I really enjoyed the movie. It was both funny and disturbingly scary.
