Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

It took nearly a year, but we finally finished reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as a family.  It's a long book when you are reading it out loud!  A few days later we watched the movie.  Naturally the kids loved the book and the movie.

In my opinion this is a turning point in the series in which the story becomes a bit darker.  This makes sense as the characters are a year older in the book and closer to adulthood.  The actors too are a year older and their voices have changed as have their appearances as they are another year through puberty.  It's also the first movie in the series to be rated PG-13.  The first three were rated PG.  

Despite the change in movie rating I was fine with my kids watching it.  Next up:  Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  Hopefully it won't be another year before I write about this book/movie, but it very well could be given we are reading a different book first before starting the next Harry Potter book.  :-)
