Day 250

movie: Harry Potter 4 and the Goblet of Fire
starring: Timothy Spall, Robert Pattinson
genre: Adventure,
year: 2005
format: TV EDIT

plot: Harry Potter has been unwillingly entered into a tournament that could be fatal, meanwhile, there is a mixed dance with other schools taking part in the tournament and the group of friends start to feel the divide of crushes as they all find disappointment in their dates.  More serious issues pop up,  as the Death Eaters, a cult who follow Voldemort start attacking the school.

This is part four in the series based on the books

The death toll rises in this offering, giving you a sense of something closer to an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer then it did the previous HP films.
Just the fact that they would have "kids"  partaking in an event where they are willingly risking their lives, tells you that things are not safe and innocent anymore.
The vampire elements really start to come out with the Voldemort character. Him and his cult of followers needing to drain the life from his enemies in order for him to return to a physical form is classic vampire traits.

what do I think I learned from this film?
Nothing is ever what it seems. Growing up is full of horrible pit stops, but if you can understand that most of the monsters are there for a reason, you can work your way through the darkness and survive.
