  1. Harry IV is an intelligent, visually seductive and mostly very satisfying fantasy epic of the first order.
  2. The studio, like plucky Harry, passes with flying colors. The new one, directed by Mike Newell from another astute script by Mr. Kloves, is even richer and fuller, as well as dramatically darker. It's downright scary how good this movie is.
  3. Probably the most engaging Potter film of the series thus far.
  4. 75
    With the cast getting looser and the mind games kinkier, it's hard to resist.
  5. Goblet of Fire, fourth in the fantasy franchise, is the most fun and the most fraught with conflict.
  6. 60
    Came alive only in the presence of a supposed dead man -- specifically, the nefarious Lord Voldemort.

    My personal favorite in the series and in my opinion the best in the series, it's funnier and has more action, and the story is the best yet,My personal favorite in the series and in my opinion the best in the series, it's funnier and has more action, and the story is the best yet, a must see and deserving of nothing less than a perfect 10 not because it's the best Harry Potter, but because it will suck you in, a must see for fans.

    Very good movie. I've never read any of the books so I am judging it on its own merits. Parts in the middle were a bt slow (e.g. Very good movie.

    Not a bad movie compared to the other Harry Potter films but they added and took off quite a bit off the original book. I suppose it's Not a bad movie compared to the other Harry Potter films but they added and took off quite a bit off the original book. I suppose it's difficult to make a movie out of such a long book. . . anyway, the Voldermort scene was probably the best part but Cedric and Krum look about 30 years old. Expand
