I remembered the third Harry Potter movie as being the best of the series, and this assertion holds up on my second viewing of the film. The cinematography and direction in this movie are first-rate. Visual flourishes abound, like the Whomping Willow which somehow comes across as a real creature, to the pinhole fade they used to transition between scenes (love that effect, wonder why it was ditched after this film?). The Sirius Black reversal and the time-travel solution at the end are probably the two best plot devices in the entire (movie) series in my opinion. A

Goblet of Fire is a good film but seems like fluff compared to the more serious themes explored in the previous movie. It's basically about sporting events and a dance. The Voldemort stuff at the end was suitably creepy. B-
