MOVIE:  Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

NUTSHELL:  Harry Potter gets entered into a dangerous interschool sports day that uses dragons instead of the egg in spoon race, deals with foreign students and growing rumblings from dark wizards who support he-who-must-not-be-name-checked.

GOOD THINGS:  Multicultural gorgeousness, more acting/less mugging, Robert Pattinson, Miranda Richardson, Dr. Who wandering around, more Neville, Twins and Ron

BAD THINGS:  Has a rushed 28 countries in 14 days feel, a large snake, and the line, “I love magic.”

FEATURES:  Sort of a lot of dancing, Clemence Poesy, Katie Leung, poopy Ron in place of scared Ron, Stanislav Ianevski, Mark Williams, Maggie Smith, ghost innuendo, Bonnie Wright in every scene, no elves thank goodness

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Hagrid on the prowl, Dumbledore going all squirrelly

NOTABLE:  Clearly it’s not really appropriate for me to review this since I am somehow simulltaneously too negative and too indulgent. However let me say I’ve never seen an audience have a better time at the movies.

BEST PART:  Crazy rocking out segment featuring Jarvis Cocker.

BEST LINE:  Everyone loves a rebel, Harry.

CROWNS:  4 out of 5
