OK, enough moral equivalancy.....lets go to the movies!
Last night, Rambling Rebuilder and I went to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
The plotline is quite dark, although there were comedy relief bits including a bit with a beard and a crumb that resulted in Rambling Rebuilder staggering from the theater to get his inhaler.
His comment: "The movie made me get the puffer! That's worth points!"
Visually the film was every bit as impressive as can be expected in the age of CGI, but even after LOTR and all the effects progress that has been made, a sequence in this film with a dragon scampering across a roof was absolutely jawdropping.
The charachters are very well played, though the cast is already too old to pass as 14, rewritting them as prepschool or older teenagers might be a good idea. Nevertheless, the actors do an awesome job.
I give it 5 out of six bricks. I may even go see it again!
