‘1 Man 365 Films 365 Days’ – Day 189


#145 / 365 – ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ (2005) – 157 mins
Cinema Challenge #60 / 115

Harry, Hermione and Ron begin to grow up, experiencing feelings of love and jealousy. Unexpectedly chosen by the magical Goblet of Fire to compete in the Triwizard tournament, Harry is set three demanding tasks and eventually faces his first showdown with his nemesis – Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).

Day 4. Having previously ranked ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban‘ as the best in the saga to date and even though new director Mike Newell ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral‘ as perfectly picked up the dark tones straight from where Alfonso Cuarón left off, he doesn’t have enough coherency on the deepening darkness enough for me.

As a result the film as a whole gets caught up it too much of its own sentimentality, to personally make the ‘The Goblet of Fire’ the weakest of the wizardry adventures so far, nonetheless it doesn’t derail me too much and stop me from shouting out – bring on the Order of the Phoenix.
